Thank you to The Candidate who helped me to quickly find the role I was looking for. The team were very prompt in finding out exactly what sector interested me and finding my key strengths which would suit the roles I was applying for. The Candidate helped me throughout the whole process, from my application, to interview tips and even a good luck call on the day of my interviews. From start to finish applying and securing the perfect role was made so much easier thanks to the team at The Candidate. I've now started at a top agency as an Organic Performance Executive and I'm thoroughly enjoying my role and love the team I'm now a part of. 

Alex, Organic Performance Executive, March 2015

I cannot thank "The Candidate recruitment team" enough for helping me get the perfect job for me. They got me in the front door, where I was able the rest. They not only listen, but get to know you as a person, not only on paper. I enjoyed getting to know Simon and Laura - they really know the difference between getting someone a job and getting a job that you will love and use to build a successful career.

Sammii, SEO Strategist, March 2015

Thanks to the Candidate, their expertise in the sector, candidate care and professionalism, I found a job that finally answers to my personal and professional requirements. I finally had the chance to drive my career towards what I really like and achieve a position that will make me grow further. Supporting me through each stage of the recruitment with good luck and catch-up calls, their team has always been helpful and friendly. Overall, very positive experience and great results! 

Angelica, Digital Acquisition Executive, March 2015

I was fresh out of University, a mature student, looking to make headway in a new career. I had spent a number of months sending CV's to what seemed like everyone when out of the blue I was contacted by Laura and The Candidate. I have to say that I was a little surprised to hear from her as I felt that I would never hear from anyone. She was brilliant. She had found the perfect role for me and was interested in every aspect of what I wanted to achieve in the future. She got me an interview with Trueshopping and the rest, as they say, is history. I cannot begin to thank her enough for the help and guidance she gave me both before and after my appointment at the company. the service she and The Candidate offer is exemplary and I will be eternally grateful for her support in getting me where I wanted to go. Thanks Laura, you're a gem!

John, Content Marketing Executive, March 2015

Laura is a really friendly, lovely person who really made the recruitment process easier - it was definitely much less stressful working with Laura than on any of the other applications I made. Laura sent me through a position that I hadn't seen before, saying that it would be a great fit for me. She was right - I loved it, I applied, interviewed and got the job! I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone looking for a new role.

Amanda, Marketing Manager, February 2015

With their specialism in Marketing, The Candidate really understood the breadth of my work experience and knew which companies would value it. Simon was the epitome of professionalism from start to finish. He listened to my job aspirations, secured me four interviews with great companies and within seven days of walking into The Candidate's offices I had received a brilliant job offer. I couldn't be happier with my new role and will always work with The Candidate in the future.

Liz, Senior Display Executive, January 2015

After the birth of my first child, I decided that I needed to shake up my working life, struggling with a daily commute and with the subsequent drain on finances and the lack of family time, I began searching for new opportunities.

Although a few agencies contacted me, Laura at The Candidate stood out from the rest. Not only did she listen to my needs and requirements in terms of work but the personal touches really made the difference.

It seemed that Laura was on call 24 hours a day, in fact even during the nightly bottle feeds Laura was still answering emails and messages. 

After a thorough interview with The Candidate, they suggested a different approach to the type of role I was looking for and after two interviews with my current employers I was offered the position. 

Now I work for an amazing company who really care about my work life balance. Which is a hundred percent down to Laura and The Candidate. 

To sum up the experience, Laura was understanding, kind, personable, professional and involved. I couldn't have asked for a better process and The Candidate comes with my full recommendation.

Lewis, Analytics & Insight Manager, December 2014
Laura has been a fantastic to work with! Very professional, organised and most of all understanding and friendly.  From initial contact with me with regards to a role she was recruiting for, to interview advice and updates. She has been positive, reassuring and gave great encouragement.  I would recommend Laura to anyone looking for a recruiter or a new role! 
Claire, eCommerce Executive, December 2014

It has been a pleasure to work with 'The Candidate' through which I have secured a great role within a fantastic company. I would like to say a big thank you to Simon, whose personal approach to his job is second to none. From day one he has been immensely supportive and has provided a professional service going the extra mile to ensure that he has fulfilled all his commitments and promises of on- going communication. I would highly recommend Simon to anyone looking for their next work opportunity.

Katie, Campaign Executive, December 2014

The Candidate are by far the best recruitment agency by a mile! They really go the distance when it comes to finding the role right for you. A particularly huge thank you to Greg and Simon who have been so patient, friendly and supportive throughout the task of finding me the right role. They are there talking you through every step of the way from offering supportive phone calls before interviews, after interviews and even on weekends. I could not recommend The Candidate enough as a recruitment agency, I feel so lucky to have had the chance to work with them in finding my perfect role!

Laura, Junior Content Strategist, Oct 2014

It's very rare to find someone like Laura, who not only dedicates herself completely to her work with every ounce of enthusiasm, ambition and professionalism, but who is a friend, offering honest advice and empathy when you need it. I'm truly thankful for all that Laura has done for me in finding my dream job! And also for supporting me every step of the way, whether that meant she worked nights, weekends, or both! You're one in a million Laura - Thank you! 

Roxanne, Marketing Manager, October 2014

I would definitely recommend The Candidate to anyone who was looking for recruitment services in the digital sector.

Abigail, PPC Executive, September 2013

Laura stayed true to 'The Candidate' name and was extremely nice to deal with. From the first conversation through to last and all the emails in between Laura was extremely professional, helpful and supportive. She placed me at Clear Channel which is so far going extremely well. I would certainly recommend The Candidate.

James, Regional Agency Account Manager, September 2014

Laura has been very helpful from the start of the job hunting process to the finish. She kept good contact and regularly checked in to make sure everything was okay. I got the job I applied for, and I definitely think that Laura was a big help. 

She is a very fun person to work with, and I'd definitely get in touch if I ever need a recruiter again.

Joshua, Media Executive, September 2014

The Candidate helped finding my next career move straight-forward and easy. Laura in particular was very supportive and provided me with a choice of exciting opportunities, which she was then instrumental in providing guidance as to which one would offer me the development I was looking for. 
I would definitely choose to work with The Candidate for any further role developments, and recommend them to anyone who wants to build a strong career within Digital Marketing.

Tom, Account Manager, September 2014

Having experienced working with numerous recruiters during my job search Laura was by far the most personable, knowledgeable in the field, honest, supportive and consistent. From the start of my job search to my first day of my new role Laura provided a personalised service that was second to none. I would highly recommend her expertise. 

Lauren, Account Executive, September 2014

The service The Candidate provided was above and beyond. Natasha was not intrusive at all, she was very polite and thorough in helping me understand the job role whilst giving helpful tips for interview success! Being a graduate I found the immediate feedback process from interviews incredibly useful and Natasha was well organised to contact before and after the interview which gave me reassurance and put me at ease. I thank her for the service she provided and getting me my first graduate job!


Natalie, Junior Account Executive, July 2014

Laura assisted in putting me forward for a new role and did a fantastic job. Her and her colleagues at The Candidate ensured that I was well prepared for my interview and that I knew what to expect. She is highly personable and kept in constant contact via phone & email, even over the weekend. I would highly recommend Laura as a recruiter.

Amy, PPC Executive, July 2014

Laura informed me about a potential role. We discussed if it would be suitable in terms of my skillset and for my career progression. After deciding I would pursue the role, the interview happened in two days and there was regular contact before and after making sure everything was fine and answering any questions I had. After my second interview, I found out the next day that they gave me an offer. The end to end process was very quick and guidance given at every step.

Ratul, Data Analyst, July 2014

I was given a tight length of time to find a new job within the digital marketing sector. Luckily, with the help of Laura at The Candidate, I managed to secure a brand new role very quickly. The level of care and knowledge Laura provided going into the interview process was extremely helpful to me in securing the role, certainly more than I would have usually expected from a recruitment company. 

Charlie, SEO Executive, July 2014

I'd like to send a huge thank you to The Candidate - especially Laura and Simon - for helping me in finding a new role. It really is the best recruitment agency I have dealt with; Laura was always available for me to call or email with any queries, and really worked hard in making the recruitment process as fast and efficient as possible.

I've not only had a professional experience with The Candidate, but a very personal one; Laura made sure she knew exactly what role I was after, and successfully delivered in placing me with a reputable marketing agency. Always on the other side of the phone or ready to reply to my emails, Laura was there to help and support me throughout the process. Simon was also very professional and friendly when I first went into The Candidate. Also, a big thanks to Brian for liaising so efficiently with the client, which made the process a smooth-running one.

I'd recommend The Candidate to anyone - in fact, I already have - as everyone who works there that I have dealt with is dedicated to finding the best possible jobs for their candidates.

Lauren, Copywriter, June 2014

I saw one of the job vacancies advertised by Laura through a mutual connection on LinkedIn which caught my eye, so I decided to take a look. I read through Laura's profile and was very impressed at the attitude and ethos behind the recruitment style of the business so continued to add Laura as a connection. I then got in touch with her and set up a meeting of which I was made to feel extremely welcome. My questions were answered with ease and professionalism. They also showed me different job vacancies that they had hand-picked for me to suit my experience levels and it was then confirmed to me that The Candidate was a company I would love to work with.

Lee, Marketing Assistant, June 2014

The Candidate was also friendly and approachable.

Daniel, PHP Developer, October 2013

My relationship with The Candidate has been managed through Simon and I have nothing but positives to say regarding his overall demeanour and dedication that he has afforded me throughout my new job search.

What impressed me most was the complete understanding of my specific requirements that I was looking to progress my career. Combined with his excellent knowledge of the Manchester digital landscape and great relationships with key contacts it was very apparent that Simon always had my interest in mind.

I felt The Candidate team went the extra mile with regards to preparation, and afterwards would always go out of their way, even if this meant making themselves available on evening and weekends.

Overall, I'm very happy that Simon was able to secure me a fantastic role at a very vibrant and exciting Manchester based media agency and I couldn't recommend him, or The Candidate, enough.

David Selby, Account Manager, August 2013

I found The Candidate to be a fantastic company to deal with. The team are friendly, helpful and very discreet. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to make a move in the near future.

Digital Marketing Manager, August 2013

This is the first role I've ever been placed in through a recruiter, and can honestly say that The Candidate has been completely different from every other recruiterment agency I've worked with in the past. 

The Candidate didn't try and put a square peg in a round hole by pushing unsuitable jobs at me - they listened to what I was looking for and found the ideal position for me. There has been regular communication, unlike others who usually go off the radar once they have your CV - The Candidate has been in touch regularly providing me with updates on where my application was up to - I've now got an offer from one of the biggest agencies in the country thanks to the team! 

SEO Manager, August 2013

From the first phone call I had with The Candidate through to the offer letter I was really happy with their efforts in helping me get the job I really wanted. I'd like to thank the team and I'd recommend The Candidate to other people in a similar position to me.

Rob, Senior Account Manager, July 2013

Working with the guys from the Candidate was a pleasure! Without their help and guidance I would not have been in a position to land the superb opportunity they introduced me to! They have been a real asset to me in finding my new role.

Many other agencies tried to place me in any role they could without taking into account my experience and knowledge. The candidate approached this differently in looking to get me the best opportunity they could rather then any opportunity they could.

Given they had only sent me for one interview and this is the role that I secured I would not hesitate in recommending the agency to others. I wasted time in trying other recruitment agencies when I could have gone straight to The Candidate.

Richard, PPC Executive, July 2013
My experience of The Candidate has been very positive from the first call. They were very proactive and delivered a personal experience. The Candidate gave me support at every stage of the process; ensuring I fully understood the company and what was expected. I would not have found this great position if it hadn't have been for The Candidate.
Lucy, Business Development Executive, June 2013
As a former recruitment consultant myself, I know that recruiters can be guilty of pushing square pegs into round holes simply to fill a role. That's not the way with the guys at the candidate. They listened to exactly what is was I wanted from my next role and importantly took note of the reasons I was leaving my current one too. Interviews were all arranged swiftly with full briefs of the roles and companies beforehand. The role they found was exactly the type of job I had hoped for. Recruitment Consultants get a lot of bad press - these guys are working to change that!
David, PPC Executive, April 2013

I met up with The Candidate and had a coffee discussing the potential roles they could put me forward for. This was a completely different approach to any other agency I had been approached by and the personal touch was a massive plus factor for me. They put me forward for a role I was very interested in and was with me every step of the way. If I was ever in the position where I had to find another job then my first port of call would be The Candidate.

Andrew, SEO Strategist, March 2013
I have no problem reccomending The Candidate as they are by far the best recruitment consultants I have come across. Their personal yet professional approach put them streets ahead of other recruitment companies I've dealt with in the past as they have ensured that they found me a position that was appropriate for me. Brian in particular was very helpful; he listened to what role I wanted and suitably prepared me for interviews - offering the right amount of information and support. The job turn around was also impressive, as I had secured a job within a week. I would highly recommend The Candidate to anyone looking for a new position
Lisa, Sales Account Manager, Feb 2013

The Candidate are by far the best recruitment agency I have come across. Brian was great support when putting me forward for relevant roles and prepping me beforehand with a hands on approach. He showed a real understanding of what I was looking for, which they achieved within an amazing 2 week turnaround! I would definitely recommend The Candidate to anyone as their service is outstanding.

Sally, Account Director, January 2013
The Candidate helped me secure my first graduate job after leaving University. They are definitely the most friendly, co-operative and helpful recruitment agency I have used. They are always there to answer your queries by either phone or e-mail, even during holiday periods such as Christmas. I would not hesitate in recommending The Candidate if you are looking for a job within media, marketing or sales.
Chris, Trader, December 2012
From start to finish, The Candidate team were dedicated and supportive in finding my new role.

Thank you so much to the team at The Candidate for helping me in getting my new job. They gave me support and guidance throughout the whole application process for my new role. I'm coming towards the end of my first week and already I can tell I can tell I have made a good decision. I think taking this job was just what I was looking for and is going to really help me progress in my career.
Emily, Affiliate Executive, October 2012
