I cannot express how amazing Select Appointments has been during my search for a new role. Especially Helen Pitcher, throughout what - for me - has been a soul destroying and heart-wrenching time, Helen has been supportive, encouraging and dedicated to her task of helping me find work. I truly could not of got through it all without Helen by my side and although we have never met I consider her to be a great friend. Cannot recommend highly enough and I am very happy to say that with Helen's help I start my the job as Commercial Administrator very soon.
I have just worked with Emma in the Norwich branch to find me a new role after redundancy due to Covid. Emma is, hands down, the best recruiter I have ever worked with. She really took the time to understand the role I was looking for and also had a great connection with the businesses she was working with. When the first position she put me forward for didn't work out, she found several others which were a great fit. She was tenacious on my behalf and I felt she was as invested in getting me the right role as I was! I would highly recommend Select and Emma to applicants and businesses alike.
I have recently been dealing with Emma Bayliss at Select to look for a new position. Emma has been amazing! Professional, extremely efficient and very honest and supportive. I would not hesitate to recommend Emma and Select to anyone looking for a new opportunity or to any business looking to recruit.
Lucy contacted me immediately after I applied for a job advertised. She spent nearly an hour on the phone talking over my CV, the job I’d applied for and my job expectations. During a 3 stage interview process Lucy kept in regular contact and was encouraging the whole time. I got the job! Lucy provided reassurance when I had a “confidence wobble” during my first week (following 4 months of furlough and a month of redundancy!!) I would highly recommend this agency.
I have recently signed a contract with a new employer and Helen, Lucy and the rest of the team we’re ever so helpful from start to finish. Always at the end of the phone or email when ever I had any questions with all the answers. I’m finally looking forward to a new adventure in my industry and the select team have helped me progress in my field with my new employer. Would definitely recommend to any one out there looking for new role.
A massive thank you to Beth at Select Appointments for making a new career path so easy and successful, the process was efficient and within a week i had applied for the job and received the position, cant thank you enough! Many thanks.
Beth the lady I deal with at select has been amazing answering any questions I have and helping me loads.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jonathan for the great assistance he provided me during my interview process as Hospitality Manager (successfully ended). The accuracy of every details, information and the advice that step by step I have received from him been an outstanding support walking me through my professional path. Thank you Jonathan Taylor.
I am very happy with the service provided by my recruitment agent Soraya, she has been always available and very efficient. Soraya is very kind and professional and has solved any problem that occurred while working with the agency Select. I strongly recommend her.
I have been working for select for 4 months and have been very impressed with the consistently great service the agency offers me. Ramona deserves special mention as a kind, approachable and incredibly hardworking member of the team. I am grateful that the work has been reliable whilst also being flexible. The communication between agency, client and workers is impeccable. Would highly recommend.
I have recently completed a contract with Select, and Donna and the team have been a pleasure to work with! The staff were very responsive, friendly, supportive, and helpful at the agency, and I really enjoyed my time working with them. The whole experience ran very smoothly, the staff were well organised and processed my paperwork and pay efficiently. Great service, would recommend!
Chris helped me land an amazing IT job, which was exactly what I was looking for, I can't thank him enough for his efforts in keeping me in the loop and preparing me for what was to come. Highly recommend him.
I had a great experience with Chris from Select Appointments. He really helped me find something that suited where I was at professionally and offered a ton of room for growth. Without a doubt it was a fantastic experience. I would recommend Chris if you want someone who really tries to understand what you want professionally!
Had such a lovely experience with Caroline at Select Appointments. She was extremely responsive, informative and professional throughout the whole journey. And on top of that she’s incredibly friendly, personable and easy to chat to! Caroline set me up for a wonderful role and through the whole process kept me well informed and prepared for the interview process (as well as keeping in contact in that nerve-racking post interview timeframe!). Very grateful to have been offered the role and it’s everything is was presented to be! Thank you for all your help, keep up the brilliant work!
Brilliant recruitment service! 5/5 Stars! Carmel was a lovely guide with getting back into work after spending the last 6 months without any luck! Certainly my shining light in these dark times! I managed to have a great 1st interview, followed up with a 2nd one! I was offered the job right away and it couldn't of gone any better! I'm so thankful that Carmel found my CV and contacted me! I finally feel like my life can continue on! Thank you for the sweet card and chocolate too! It made me cry happy tears! Here's to the future! Keep up the amazing work Carmel! :)
I highly recommend this recruitment agency. I have been looking for a new opportunity for a while now, and I was signed up to several agencies, once I signed up with Select I found a new role within a month. I couldn't fault them for the service provided. Carmel was very flexible and would be available to speak to me whenever I was free. It was a pleasure to work with her. Select Appointments will definitely be at the top of my list should I need them in the future. Thank you Carmel and all at Select.
Emma is an excellent recruiter. Her active listening skills, superb questioning combined with established relationships with the business owners around the East of England sets her aside from any other recruiter. She looks to match you with the right (and fulfilling) opportunity, keeps you up to date throughout the process and responds quickly. She thinks beyond the confines of job specs and CVs. Would highly recommend her to anybody recruiting or looking for a new job.
You have never failed to deliver in all my requests and some have been challenging to say the least! With your team’s passion, drive and professionalism to ensure you never let me down, and still maintain that you get me the right candidate is a credit to you all. This is what makes Select the best recruitment agency around, and it’s a pleasure to work with you all.
I can genuinely say it was an absolute pleasure working with the recruitment consultant who contacted me from Select (Mr Chris Lo) He is professional, articulate and a phenomenal communicator, something of which I have noticed most recruitment consultants nowadays lack. He was able to secure me a phenomenal role and I would be more than happy to work with him again and would highly recommend him and the company as a whole.
Andy was very helpful and informative throughout the process. I cannot find one fault with him!!! He helped me prep for the interview and even helped me find the place! Amazing, thank you so much for your help securing my new role!!
Claire was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process and gets how much a placement is important and needs to be the right fit for every individual. Claire is extremely professional and knowledgeable in what she does and has a drive and understanding that most other recruitment agencies doesn't have, it's not about the commission for Claire, it's about knowing her candidates are 100% happy. I would only ever use Claire going forward.
Supply Chain Manager
I have worked with Select for the past two years. Since the start of the contract the team have shown that they understand our varying requirements across the site which include Retail Catering, Patient Catering, Portering, Waste/Linen Porters, Administration and Craftsmen. Select have worked collaboratively with myself and leads for each of the departments and have assisted in improving processes to reduce the administration burden for the department leads. I would not hesitate to recommend Select for their operational delivery.
Claire was amazing during the hiring process. Since the first call I had it with her, she was outstanding, listening and trying to find the best vacancy for me. I am so happy I could have Select and Claire as part of my journey, I’m in an excellent position and working with something that makes me feel useful. Thank you, Claire!
My experience of working with Ruth and Select was incredibly positive. Ruth is extremely professional and helpful. She took the time to understand my skill set, my desired role, career progression and working environment. She is an expert at her job, ensuring that both the end customer and the job applicant are a perfect match and providing a great level of support and customer service throughout the whole recruitment process. Highly recommend!
I have nothing but praise for the wonderful work Em Whiting did to help me secure a full time position. From the first time we spoke, Em gave me all the help and advice that I needed. She spent time getting to know me and identify roles that I would be suitable for. I would highly recommend Select Appointments as they very professional and they know their markets.
Been great to me in the years that I have worked for them. I have never been out of work in the 5 years I have been there. Very helpful with everything too, especially Katie.
I really enjoyed working for Select. Money was always on time, payslips as well. It was easy to communicate with Select team. I highly recommend this job agency
Did your recruiter ever support you like a friend? Francesca really gave me the support and courage to face the interview she lined up for me. Now I am working in a very good company with loads of good people. She is the perfect recruiter and anyone who is in need of a job can contact her. She will follow up with the best opportunities and companies. Thanks again to Francesca.
I have only good things to say about my experience with this agency. They are incredibly friendly and were helpful throughout the entire process of getting my new job. I personally dealt with Surinder, who was fantastic. He was always quick to answer my queries, was very informative and made the whole process seamless. Highly recommend.
The best agency I have work for in Oxford. Special mention for Surinder who from the first minute supported me and helped me find a job that adapted to my professional development, its closeness and professionalism has far exceeded all my expectations. I highly recommend Select if you are looking for a job!
Lovely agency to Temp with. Always there for advice and respond quickly to any queries i have had over the last couple of months. I would like to thank Max Rey for an incredible service he has provided me, very professional and cares about his work within Select Appointments.
Max at Select Appointments has provided an excellent service. He was very professional, efficient, but also wonderfully honest and up front about the service that was being provided. To sum thing's up in a short review, yes I would definitely recommend select appointments, and in particular.... Max.
I have worked with Select Appointments for the past 11 months, and have nothing but good things to say about the company and staff. From the initial welcoming appointment, their help finding me suitable employment in my chosen field, to their knowledgeable, rapid, courteous response to all my enquiries throughout my contract period, I am truly thankful to have been part of their workforce. A special shout out to Ruth, for all your hard work and kind encouragement. Thank you
Caroline reached out to me with a job she thought would be suitable for me, a few weeks down the line, I’m in that position she recommended me for and I’m really enjoying it! Caroline is wonderful and has been incredibly helpful over the last couple of months, she really wants to help and she has always gone out of her way to do so. A great experience, thank you!
Eileen got in touch with me last week with details of a job she thought might be suitable, I’ve had an interview and start next week! She’s been so helpful and encouraging throughout the process, a delight to work with.
They respond very quickly and they're flexible for any queries. But the most important thing is they never let you down. If you lose your job you can be sure they will find you another. Very highly recommend. All staff offer a higher than average standard but the senior manager Katie is fantastic. Impossible is a word that does not exist to her. She is always there for you and I've had never experienced that from any of my previous workplaces.
They were so great throughout the whole process. Kept checking in regularly and made sure I was fully informed and kept up to date. I received a phone call before my interview to help me prep, as well as messages on the day to see how everything had gone. Such an wonderful level of care.
Very good quality and professional service, I only rang select appointments this morning and by midday all sign up and documents done thanks for your help Jenny - you're a star!
Caroline (Director) is extremely professional whilst also friendly and was an excellent mediator between myself and my future employer. She is diligent, understanding and encouraging which are refreshing qualities for a recruiter in the current job market. I can’t recommend Select enough, especially as a new graduate seeking my first “young professional” role.
Cannot recommend enough! Particular praise goes to Carmel, who was always so helpful in getting me work. I am now placed in a role which I am very happy with and it is all thanks to Select.
The team at Select totally deserves 5 stars, especially Rebecca! She often went above and beyond her role, which is pretty rare to find! I can't recommend this agency enough, so lucky I found them!
Ashley from the get go was informative, helpful and knowledgeable about the jobs I needed and wanted. He kept me in the loop of any progress that went on he was very good at understanding the roles I needed and when finally getting the interview he was there to help me through it. Very happy with everything the company had to offer for sure ☆☆☆☆☆
What can I say about Helen and the team at Select? Absolutely can’t fault them. If I could give 6 stars, I would. Helen helped me get a fantastic job. So very helpful all the way through every step of the application. Hopefully, I won’t be needing to use any agencies in the near future, but if I do, Helen at Select will be my first port of call.
My experience of working with Fenn Morris was professional and supportive. Fenn guided me through the role and made sure I fully understood what would be expected and made sure my fit with the company was right for both of us. She’s a great cheerleader and boosted my confidence. Having been out of work for 18 months she understood what I needed. I highly recommend her!
Has been fantastic dealing with Rebecca, found me a great job within days and was always correct on hours and pay, I would recommend Select 100%.
I have had one of the best job search experiences with this Agency. The person I dealt with, a Ms Em Whiting was nothing short of spectacular. Constantly kept me up to date, possessed an incredible amount of working knowledge and was always more than happy to help. While I hope to not have to be looking for a role any time soon if I do I will certainly be using them again.
I honestly cannot recommend Eileen and Select Appointments enough. Unlike any other recruiter who I have dealt with, Eileen took the time and effort to fully read and understand my CV and to talk to me about my career aspirations and my desired role. She found me my dream job and supported me throughout the application process right through to the official job offer. I will be forever thankful for all of her help.
I had the privilege of participating in the recruitment process led by Claire. Claire is the best, most honest recruitment specialist that I ever met in my life. Moreover she is great and open minded person with huge professional skills. If you are wondering which recruitment specialist to cooperate with - do not hesitate, you have found the best specialist.
Georgia from Select has been fantastic, brilliant communication, very polite and fast responding to emails. Helped me to succeed in getting a permanent position in a new career path which has been a goal of mine. Thank you
Had such a great experience with Select Appointments. I've been dealing with Georgia and she has been so professional and responsive throughout the whole process. Cannot thank her enough for all of her help! Would definitely recommend.
Its been an absolute pleasure working with Francesca. She has prepared me for each stage of my interview, listened to my presentation and help tweak and change it where needed. She has kept me updated with any new information or news and is very responsive in retuning calls and emails even when on annual leave. I would highly recommend her and it's been an honour working with you to successfully help me land my dream job.
Orsi contacted me after seeing my CV and secured a role for me very quickly and efficiently. She responded to any queries immediately and the Select timesheets/payroll system works very well. She also checked in occasionally to see how I was getting on in my role and was always happy to help with any queries, if only all agencies were as efficient!
Niko Ovenden, Client Google Review
Have used Select in my workplace for 2 years now and they consistently source excellent temporary candidates to help us fill areas either tricky to recruit for, or simply requiring a temporary capacity increase. Great! 2020 Edit/update: just to note we had a temp hire recently and Select were first out of the blocks, sending several CVs and we recruited a Select candidate, even before some of the other temp agencies contracted to us had replied with CVs!
Chris Lake, Client Google Review
For me, the difference with Select is that they invest the time to understand your requirements both as a business customer and as a candidate and match you to the right people or positions. Unlike a lot of Recruitment companies the communication is strong from the Select team with regular updates and you never feel like just another candidate in a drawer. Dedication, passion, professionalism and commitment are the qualities that set them apart from the rest and I cannot rate the Select team more highly.
What can I say, what a team! I had a call out of the blue from Jonathan, he put me in contact with an employer after looking at my CV, he kept me up-to-date and in the know, zoom details, times and places and was with me all the way to the end unlike most agencies. He was also so responsive and helpful, I would recommend this team anytime. Thank you Jonathan, top man.
I have been in contact with several Cambridge recruitment companies this year whilst job hunting. Jonathan was incredibly helpful! He is approachable, friendly, and very quick paced. With the help of Jonathan, I landed my dream job within 10 days of first reaching out to Select! If I every need a recruitment consultant again, I will be contacting Jonathan straight away!!
I received a phone call from Ashley at Select informing me of a job that appeared to fit my skillset and inviting me to meet up and register an application. Within three working days I attended an interview with the prospective employer after which Ashley gave me positive feedback and proceeded to talk me through the selection process while giving me plenty of encouragement and confidence. I attended a follow up session with the employer the following week and the same day received a phone call and confirmation email from Ashley advising I had been successful. The whole process was managed seamlessly by Ashley from beginning to end and I would encourage anyone out there seeking employment to contact him for help.
I worked with Georgia over a couple of months whilst considering my next career move. Georgia was always professional yet friendly and personable. I have dealt with many recruiters over the years and regard this experience as one of the best, and my career move was not all plain sailing which only further speaks volumes for Georgia's attitude and professionalism. What sets this experience apart is that she always had time to listen and understand my requirements and acted in my best interest. I would highly recommend Georgia and Select to anyone in need of recruitment assistance either hiring or looking for your next step.
Select appointments are a great reliable and professional recruitment consultancy. I dealt with a representative called Katie who was just brilliant, she was very quick in securing me an interview for the position I had applied for, leading to me starting the job within a week. This job has now enabled me to gain a permanent position with an internationally recognised market leader carrying out my desired role. All communication has been prompt and professional and I must say above other recruitment businesses I have dealt with in the past. I would recommend Select to anyone looking for a job whether it be a change in career or maybe just looking for progression I would not hesitate to use them again if required in the future. Thank you to Katie and the team at Select.
Since arriving in the UK back in 2017, I've been working through Select in Cambridge. All I can say is that Soraya and Ramona have been really responsive, helpful and such a supportive team from the beginning (even when you struggle with the language to find a job). I'm very grateful to have found such a good agency because thanks to them I have been able to see many places in the city, meet people who have become friends and improve not only the language but also develop new skills. These are just a few advantages but they are endless... Just check by yourself! Highly recommended!
I have been working with Orsi and she's brilliant! Always answers texts/phone calls and always finds me suitable work. Even when I was only able to work a couple days a week with restricting hours, she still found me work! Orsi got me a lovely job in a school, the hours suited me perfect! I left the school position a couple weeks ago as I wanted to get back into real kitchens and she got me a lovely job straight away! Orsi is very professional, polite and competent.
Whether you are looking for some part-time work to complement your studies or you want to do more hours, but are not looking for a full-time contract, Select can provide you the flexibility you are looking for. It is an opportunity not just to work, but to meet people and get to see the beautiful colleges around Cambridge. The system is simple and effective, you stay in contact with your agents through WhatsApp or email and decide when you want to work. The staff is really friendly and very helpful. If you want to sign up they will help you fill in the application to start work as soon as possible and are always ready to answer any questions or doubts.
I would like to say a massive thank you to Donna at Select Appointments. You went above and beyond to take the time to listen to me, find me the perfect job that I was looking for and also help me to prepare for the interview that you lined up for me. You truly have made this experience one that I can remember and you really do make a positive impact in the world by doing what you call your job. Friendly, incredibly responsive and reliable! Thank you Donna - 5 stars - highly recommended!
I was looking for a job and Andy contacted me as he saw my CV online. A few days later he had gotten me an interview. Sent me a very detailed email about the company I interviewed for and also called me a few times to make sure I had all the info I needed and that I felt confident! I passed the first interview, but the second interview was postponed and before it happened I was offered a position somewhere else. I would like to thank Andy for all his time and help and definitely recommend him and Select Appointments.
