Testimonials

Extremely efficient and personal service

We approached Jayne to assist us in recruiting a Project Manager to guide us on the various legislation which we feel we may fall under as a rehabilitation centre. Jayne helped us to pull together our brief and was extremely perceptive in identifying what we needed. She suggested three possible candidates to us all of whom were exceptionally worthy of interview and, indeed, it was a hard choice to choose between the final two. I cannot recommend her highly enough as her perception of individual’s needs and requirements appears to be extremely intuitive.

Dealing with Better People has been a real pleasure

 

Dealing with BetterPeople has been a real pleasure. Jayne came to our rescue when we needed to hire a new PA for one of our directors at short notice. She did all the 'weeding out' for us and within a week had found us a great candidate who was just what we were looking for. In fact so good that we hired her at first interview!

Thank you for taking the time to understand our all aspects of our business, working environment and culture. We can be truly confident that if you present a candidate to us they will not only be technically able to fill the role but also will fit in with the existing team. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and indeed already have!

Recommend Better People to Anyone!

I was employed as a locum practice manager following the resignation of the manager.

I found the costs of advertising for new receptionists in local newspapers horrendous;  on each occasion I received 100 +  applications to sift through.

A colleague recommended Jayne Johnson of Better People Ltd. I contacted Jayne who responded immediately came to the practice to meet me and within days presented 4 candidates for me to interview, each candidate had been pre interviewed by Jayne. All four candidates could have done the job and we chose the person we felt would best fit into our team.

On first impressions our decision has been the right one, our team has been reenergised by the new staff as they have all been interviewed to establish their attitude and their experience.

I would recommend Better People to anyone. Dealing with Jayne and her team has been a pleasure and made our lives so much easier!

All I'd like to add is what an enjoyable experience working with Jayne is; her professionalism and attention to detail is exemplary and a recruitment process I had put off for sometime became a seamless, simple, task with her guidance. I really appreciate all of her help in making this important choice go so well for all of us at Panthera.

We get the best fit candidates every time.

 

 

We have been using the services of Jayne at Better People for the past 2 years or so, and she and the team have successfully filled a range of positions for us, from Admin Support to Sales and Product Manager roles.

I find her a pleasure to work with and extremely professional. She takes the time to fully understand our organisation and to discuss the particular requirements of each role in detail, working together with us to ensure that we get the best fit candidates every time.

Best Recruiters Ever Used

I can thoroughly recommend Jayne and her team at Better People, so far as to say they are the best recruiters I have ever used. Comprehensively pre interviewing candidates to ensure fit, sending diary invites for interviews and speedy follow up calls, the service has been utterly professional. I will not hesitate to use Jayne in the future for all our recruitment needs.gt

Many thanks

I would recommend Better People  to anyone

My Experience of Using a Recruitment Agency.

I was employed as a locum practice manager following the resignation of the manager. 

One of my early priorities was to recruit a new practice manager, this we did successfully, this was swiftly followed by needing to recruit two receptionists one retiring and the other cutting her hours in preparation for retirement, this also went well, however when the senior receptionist also announced her resignation my heart sank.

I found the costs of advertising in local newspapers horrendous; the fact that the jobs are circulated to job seekers meant on each occasion I received 100 applications to sift through. In desperation I emailed local colleagues to ask if any of them had ever used a recruitment service, time was of the essence because I only had 3 weeks to recruit.

A colleague recommended Jayne Johnson of Better People Ltd. I contacted Jayne who responded immediately came to the practice to meet me and within days presented 4 candidates for me to interview, each candidate had been pre interviewed by Jayne. All four candidates could have done the job and we chose the person we felt would best fit into our team.

On first impressions our decision has been the right one, our team has been re-energised by the new staff and we now hope for a period of stability.

I would recommend Better People  to anyone. I feel my time and money saved on advertising has been a very worthwhile investment.

Really understand our needs

Thank you for helping us recently find a new Client Director for our growing business.

The pre work you did to really understand our needs and vet potential candidates significantly reduced the search time and meant we only met people who were a high-match for us, making selection much easier.

Helpful and Professional

I had the pleasure of meeting Hilary as I applied for a job through better people. Hilary was so helpful and professional she made sure I was prepared for my interview. If I had a question or issue Hilary was more than happy to help me. She prepped me for the interview and without her, I don’t think I would have got the job! So thank you so much Hilary for your help.

Luke Conneley October 31, 2019

A really personal service!

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Better People. From the first phone call, follow ups, emails. Everything has been so friendly and working in the best interests of both the potential Employee and Employer. A really personal service to try to find the 'right fit' for all. Lovely people, would happily work with them in the future.

Jordan Laurence Candidate November 13, 2019

Candidate is a perfect fit!

‘Hilary has been a great help to us, very patient and didn’t give up when we were picky. The candidate we have found is a perfect fit for us and is testament to Hilary's attention to detail.’

Absolute Dream – Will Add Real Value to My Business

Testimonial:

"Working with Better People was an absolute dream. They took time to really understand who I was looking for, going far deeper than a job description and asked some really great questions. Then they took this information and ran with it. I didn't have to do anything until I was presented with two excellent candidates for the first interview. They were so good I took both to a second interview and hired one immediately after that. The whole process was smooth and simple, but for me the real plus was the time saved finding someone who'd add real value to my business. Worth every penny!"

Definitely be Using Jayne Again

I’ll definitely be using Jayne again.

I kicked off my hiring plans with the specs being sent out on a Saturday afternoon.  By 10am Monday, BP Ltd were engaged with the brief to find me a great bookkeeper (with 3-4 other non negotiable criteria) by the end of the week, so they could start on the following Monday.  In a rather speechless way, I was left with two great candidates to choose from; I just wished I had the scope to hire them both.

 

I have dealt with a LOT of recruiters who bluster hot air and promise everything;  What I got from Jayne and her team at BP was simply good old fashioned ‘do what it says on tin’ recruitment, allowing me to continue to run my business.  I’ll definitely be using Jayne again.
