Helen is an outstanding professional in a highly competitive environment but thanks to her professionalism and thoroughness she has been able to put me in touch with a very niche industry that could match my experience and skill sets. She values her clients' interests greatly, be it the candidates' or the hiring company's, and has shown an infallible support throughout the interview process.
Senior Associate / Risk Advisory Group
I worked with Helen over a couple of months in finding a new role in the industry. I found Helen extremely professional, diligent, pro-active and regularly giving me a call to provide updates, including check-ins whilst companies were deciding on next steps.
Helen is an excellent example of recruitment done well and I would highly recommend her to both companies and individuals looking for their next move
Head of Retail Banking Propositions / Metro Bank
Helen gave me exceptional support during my recent search. Her deep insight, tenacity and honest guidance made a standout difference to both my personal impact and confidence throughout the process.
Her genuine care for both the prospective employee and employer was always visible and made a lasting impression. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again in the future.
Director of Brand Marketing / Crown Worldwide Group
Most recruiters can marry up a set of skills, but it takes someone exceptional to match personality, brand and behaviour. Helen’s rigorous and honest approach meant she took time to understand requirements and skills on both sides of the fence, enabling her to communicate exactly what was on offer at JLL.
Persuading senior stakeholders to review a candidate from a totally different background can be a tall order, and one that many will shy away from, but Helen seemingly relishes such a challenge, remaining dedicated and on-hand throughout. Without doubt she is someone who I will stay in touch with and hope to make use of her expertise for many years to come.
Head of Marketing / JLL
Helen helped me during my career move and straight away I noticed that Helen was one of the 2-3 recruiters out of the many I was in contact with, whom actually genuinely did care about you. Professional from start to end and even though in the end I found my role via a different channel, she stayed in touch and was constantly looking out for the right role for me. A pleasure to work with and highly recommend to get in touch if you are thinking of a career move.
