“I have worked with Susi as both a customer and then a client for many years. Susi provided me with excellent insight and understanding of any potential employers when I was seeking work myself by delivering exactly what had been promised. Then as a client myself Susi became an excellent contact and client manager, taking the time and the effort to find out exactly what I was looking for and providing me with lots of choice. I came to trust Susi completely, as I was never let down and I would recommend her services wholeheartedly.”
“My relationship with Edwards & Pearce strengthens with each assignment. Without doubt they are a professional organisation with integrity and consultants who work hard to build rapport with clients so that they deliver a shortlist of candidates from whom it is difficult to make a selection because they all ‘fit’. At least, that’s my experience!”
“I have no hesitation in recommending Edwards & Pearce as an excellent recruitment service provider, we found them to be both very professional & efficient in the way they managed the recruitment assignment given to them. It was equally refreshing to hear the positive comments from the candidates themselves regarding their relationship with E&P concerning the communication and preparation process during interview selection. I would certainly use E&P for any future recruitment assignments.”
“I initially contacted Sarah through a recommendation due to the fact I was looking for a Sales Ledger Assistant, when I first met Sarah she actually listened to what our requirements were and what I was actually looking for with the correct skill sets, not all recruitment agency's do this as I've found over the years of being in business. If you’re looking for any additional members of permanent or temporary staff then I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough. She listens, she gets the right candidate and most importantly she delivers.”
“If I need to use a recruitment agency I always use Edwards and Pearce as I never feel like they are 'selling' to me, and they always send me some great quality candidates. Recently I needed to fill a vacancy and within very short timescales (a couple of days), and they needed a specific skill set. This was the first time I came across Kirsty, she didn't fill my inbox with loads of potential candidates, just sent me one that she felt would fit the bill - and she certainly did that! 2 days later the successful candidate was on a training course with the company MD, Senior Managers and Clients. The feedback has been fantastic. All thanks go to Kirsty as it was the easiest possibly recruitment I've experienced. Unfortunately for her she has now set the bar high for any future support I may need..... Highly recommend Kirsty and Edwards & Pearce for any recruitment support you need.”
“Kirsty has always been a pleasure to work with. She is enthusiastic, positive and loves a challenge. I have been very impressed with her ability to source candidates for me quickly often working to incredibly demanding deadlines. She takes pride in her work and this shows. She is always quick to respond, happy to help and friendly without being overbearing. These are qualities that every good recruiter should have. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
“I have used Raj for the recruitment of finance staff. Raj conducts himself in a very professional manner but at the same time provides a personable service. He is quick to understand the business' needs and helps to make the process easier for all concerned.
I would recommend Raj to other businesses that require support in their recruitment process.”
“I have used Raj for recruitment of finance professionals. He has always been quick to understand our needs and delivered what we as a client needed in a very professional and timely manner. He is also very personable to work with which makes the process altogether easier.”
'I really appreciate your help with this role Susi - I absolutely could not have done it without you.'
'I was extremely impressed with the service I received from Kirsty at Edwards & Pearce, she was able to produce 4 suitable candidates in a very short space of time and we are well on the way to filling our vacant post. Thank you Kirsty I will certainly use Your services again.'
We have worked with Edwards and Peace for almost 3 years, and I’ve dealt with multiple recruiters at this agency during this time including Becka, Jenny, Jen and Susi. The service received has always been great.
You can speak honestly with the team about what you’re looking for and they are always understanding of the operational priorities of the business and tailor that around the candidates sent over.
Each recruiter has their area of expertise and that leads to quality candidates been sent over and a good knowledge of the market at the time you need it.
We’re very happy to work alongside Edwards & Pearce for our recruiting needs.
‘I’ve worked with Jen on several temporary contracts this year, and always found her to be highly efficient and responsive to our needs. Jen is quick to understand our requirements, and to know the candidates who cannot only perform well within the role required, but also fit in well within our team. We are delighted with the service she supplies and look forward to continuing working with her in the future!’
“Sarah Benson was absolutely amazing dealing with my application. She was on the ball every step of the way & often called me to keep me updated. Fabulous woman couldn’t recommend enough! Thank you, Sarah!”
“Raj has been a brilliant consultant to work with; very professional and super responsive. He helped me land an amazing role within 48 working hours. Thanks Raj.”
“Edwards & Pearce have provided me with invaluable support, guidance and advice on both the current employment market and my future prospects. I found they were very easily able to match my employment needs with those of prospective employers and have provided me with numerous opportunities which have helped to both focus and fast track my career.”
“Amazing work with Sarah Benson, highly recommend. She's fab and keeps in touch; got my new exciting opportunity thanks to her help. Will definitely pass her name and company on to people looking for work. 10/10.”
“I have known Susi for more than 5 years now. She never fails to impress me with her skill in matching client and candidate. Her knowledge of each candidate is superb and when I have been a candidate with her, she has always been thorough, enthusiastic and motivational in preparing me for interview. Her understanding of the marketplace and her engaging way with people, whether hiring or job seeking, is exceptional. She is unquestionably one of the best recruitment specialists I have ever encountered! As an added bonus she is a delightful person whose sense of fun, in the right moments of course, makes for a very enjoyable working relationship!”
“Kirsty placed me with a temporary role around 7 years ago. I was working in a role I was not enjoying and wanted to move on. Kirsty was supportive and helped me in my search, and in that time where I felt a little uncertain, the communication was excellent. Since placing me with the temporary role, my career has really taken off. I was made a permanent member of staff and have since had 4 promotions internally, the latest of which sees me join the senior management team. Throughout my career Kirsty has always checked in to see how I am, and now Kirsty works with me for recruitment, having helped to place a number of my incredible team. I would highly recommend Kirsty and will continue to work with her in the future.”
“Would just like to say a huge thank you to Jenny at Edwards & Pearce for finding me a great new position yet again. Over the past 15 years she has always been friendly, incredibly hardworking on my behalf and a consummate professional.”
I would like to say a very big – huge- thank you for the support I have received from Kirsty Taylor.
I contacted Kirsty in October 2021 to see how I went about looking for another role. I explained that only a few months prior I had been approached directly by an organisation and was `encouraged’ to apply for a role which I was successful in gaining. Unfortunately, it soon became evident that I had made a mistake leaving a role I didn’t need to for a role where every aspect turned out to be different to what I had been told and an overall extremely negative experience. I felt so regretful for being flattered into making a bad decision and this made me question myself and lose a lot of my confidence. I had reached a point where the new role became untenable.
Kirsty did not judge me, she listened. She listened at a time when I didn’t feel heard and offered me reassurance. Kirsty told me not to worry that everyone at some point makes a bad move and it can be fixed.
Right away Kirsty set about trying to help me to change the situation. Keeping me up to date. Keeping the line of communication open being calm, kind and realistic at all times. Kirsty helped me to find a new role which I feel so excited to start. It is the opportunity I need to show who I am and start again. I know that I wouldn’t have been able to have done it without Kirsty.
I couldn’t have asked for someone more supportive at a really low point. I will always be grateful for Kirsty’s help and advice. The words Thank You don’t feel big enough.
'I applied for a role through Edwards & Pearce and was contacted by Kirsty Taylor, she quickly passed my details on to the employer, this resulted in me receiving a job offer during my first interview.
Kirsty has been fantastic and so friendly to deal with and helpful. I cannot recommend her highly enough!'
I have got to say registering with Edwards and Pearce was the best thing I could have done. I applied for a role to which I was contacted quickly and professionally by Jen Calvert. She arranged me an interview with the company and quickly after arranged me a second at another role she thought would suit myself.
Jen kept me updated and was very helpful in any queries I had and made me feel at ease whilst searching for a job.
Quickly after my interviews I had received feedback and Jen fed this back to me followed by a job offer. I am so grateful to Jen for helping me find a job role which I can see myself fitting in to and enjoying for years to come. I will most definitely be recommending Edwards and Pearce especially Jen to anyone I know struggling to find work or wanting a change in career.
Thank you again for all your help Jen you’ve been an absolute diamond!
'After applying for a role, Kirsty contacted me within days and found me the perfect role for my needs and qualifications! I received an offer the same day as my interview! Cannot thank her enough for all her help, she was friendly, kind and so attentive! I definitely recommend her service it was 5 star!'
‘Kirsty, I would give a 5-star rating on my review with Edwards & Pearce in particular the way you have handled the entire process from the job specification, to the interview and to the end result.
I found you to be very informative of the role you presented and took care in aligning the job to me personally to match and was very professional with helping to assist when required.
Thank you again for all your help.’
‘Hi Susi. I just wanted to thank you for identifying the perfect match between myself and my new role. Because of you and your hard work, attention to detail, we made a great match and I'm enjoying the role. Thanks again’
'I have had the privilege of working with Becka Chittell, an exceptional recruiter during my job search. Her expertise and commitment were truly remarkable. From the beginning, she took the time to understand my career goals and aspirations, ensuring she matched me with the perfect opportunities. Her professionalism and support throughout the process were unparalleled. Becka kept me informed, provided valuable insights, and cheered me on every step of the way. Thanks to her efforts, I have found a fantastic job that aligns perfectly with my skills and interests. I couldn’t be happier with the experience and highly recommend Becka to anyone embarking on a job search journey. Thanks Becka!'
