I have had the pleasure of the Candidate successfully placing me
in two great roles over my working career at very reputable
companies. Laura in particular has always worked tirelessly to help
me get the right role and extremely quickly. I have good memories
of exchanging emails 11pm at night with Laura responding to my
queries and at the same time ensuring I was prepared for my
interviews. I have used many recruitment companies in the past, but
none like the Candidate who would go out of their way to help me
get the right job. Thanks Laura and The Candidate, the best
recruitment company and Consultant by far!
Shiraz, August 2016
It was great working with The Candidate when I was trying to
look for a new role! Megan, in particular, helped me through the
process in a professional manner and put me at ease before and
after each interview. The process was quick, simple and you can
tell Megan works with many fantastic clients. Not only this but I
was given feedback quickly and I felt supported throughout the job
hunt. Overall I'm extremely grateful for all the help I received
from Megan and can't thank her enough
Samantha, July 2016
I can't express my gratitude enough to Stevie and the team at
The Candidate for their hard work. Without Stevie's hard work and
dedication, I wouldn't be starting my new role in 2 weeks time.
Throughout the application process Stevie kept in contact so I knew
how my application was going, which many other recruitment agents
fail to do. The service provided by Stevie and The Candidate is
unrivalled in the digital sector, and if needed, they will
certainly be my first contact for further employment.
Andrew, July 2016
Stevie helped me all along the process of applying for my
job, he was very personal and kept me updated throughout the
journey! A credit to the company.
Chris, July 2016
Throughout my job search, Stevie was incredibly helpful,
informative and always available to answer any questions. From
initial contact to job offer, the whole process was really swift
and as I'm about to start my new role, I couldn't be happier! If
I'm ever looking again in the future, Stevie and the team at The
Candidate will definitely be my first port of call. THANKS
Laura, June 2016
My experience of working with Stevie was exceptional. He took
care to find out exactly what I was looking for, and quickly found
me a role that exceeded my expectations. He went above and beyond
to ensure I was prepared for interviews and provided an
approachable, but professional service. Highly recommended.
Lydia, June 2016
Stevie provided lots of information and preparation for the
role. He was extremely helpful and positive throughout the whole
process which made the interviews run smoothly and put me at ease.
I'd definitely keep in contact if I'm seeking a new role in the
future and will recommend him to others.
Christina, June 2016
Stevie approaches recruitment with commitment, passion and
enthusiasm which definitely mirrors his style of recruiting.
Throughout the whole recruitment process Stevie managed and helped
progress my CV, set up interviews and provide outstanding support.
I would definitely approach Stevie again if I seek further
employment in the digital sector, he and The Candidate provide an
excellent service and really stand out in the competitive
Nicholas, May 2016
I started my search for a new job just 1 week before Amy
was able to secure me 3 interviews for great Marketing firms within
the area I was looking at. From these interviews I received 2 job
offers which Amy managed brilliantly. Throughout the whole process
Amy was attentive and offered great advice and feedback. I am so
pleased with the service I have received from The Candidate. I am
now looking forward to starting my new job. Thank you
Natalie, April 2016
When I got in touch with Simon, he was very inquisitive about my
experience and what roles might be suitable for me. He was
proactive in putting me forward to companies and within days he
managed to secure three interviews for me that same week - they
were all for jobs I would have happily considered. I got a great
offer after my second interview and gladly accepted. I'm now
looking forward to starting soon. Throughout the process, Simon was
very attentive and we had a lot of follow up calls to make sure I
had the best opportunities. I know I will stay in touch and will
recommend Simon to anyone looking for work.
Agata, April 2016
Simon was an excellent help in me finding a new placement, due
to his reliability and hard work. He achieved more in 2 days what
other recruiters couldn't do within a week. I am very grateful with
all the work Simon has done for me and would happily recommend him
for anyone else's help.
Harry, April 2016
Laura is exceptional at what she does. She goes the extra mile,
providing knowledge and insight that is second to none. She makes
you feel well taken care of and will go above and beyond to match
the right person to the best role for their skill set. I
can't recommend her enough!
Alexandra, April 2016
I would highly recommend Daisy to anyone looking for a new role.
She matched me up to fantastic role and helped me to reach the next
stage of my career. She is extremely friendly and made sure I was
fully prepared for the interview process. In the past, I have been
put off by recruiters due to their nature of sending multiple roles
and not considering if the company is right for the person. Daisy
makes sure that the job is right for you, not just the role but the
culture of the company, too.
Sam, Arpil 2016
Becca was invaluable in helping with my current career move,
keeping me in mind when new roles were available. Instead of
putting me forward for just anything Becca rightfully waited until
the perfect role came in that would match my key skills and
capabilities. Thanks to Becca's intuition, I knew I was the right
person for the job as soon as I stepped into the interview and was
told I had by the end of it.
Damian, April 2016
Laura has been instrumental in helping me build the team here at
Graham & Brown. She is absolutely fantastic to deal with-
transparent, great communicator and willing to go the extra
Chris, April 2016
It always surprises me she is only joined the recruitment industry
in recent years, but my assumption that's the reason she has been
so successful. Previously working on 'the other side' she is a much
more rounded individual than the vast majority of recruiters I have
If you are looking to recruit or be recruited in a Digital or
eCommerce role I would without doubt recommend Laura, she is fast
becoming (if she isn't already) an instrumental figure in the
northern digital landscape.
Caldon was a pleasure to work with and was very supportive
during the recruitment process, allowing me time to ask any
questions about the client and the role, which enabled me to enjoy
the interview process feeling prepared and relaxed
Kaye, April 2016
I worked with Simon from The Candidate to assist with my recent
return to the job market after 3 years and he was amazing. He was
very helpful and approachable asking all the right questions
regarding the type of job I was looking for and offering
recommendations especially as my job requirements were quite
specific. He was always quick to respond and get in touch whenever
either of us had questions which made the whole job search so much
quicker, better and overall an enjoyable process.
Tola, March 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Simon and would highly
recommend/come to him again in future!
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
Alex, Organic Performance Executive, March 2015
Within a day or two of first speaking to Daisy she had already
organised a promising interview for me which then went on to land
me a brilliant new role within only a couple of weeks. She is
brilliant at communicating and keeping you updated. I would highly
recommend Daisy to anyone looking for a new role
Jade, February 2016
Laura was brilliant from start to finish in finding me a new
role, she carefully selected companies and roles she thought would
be suitable for me and I am pleased to say she was right all along.
Laura really covered all the bases when it came to interview and
showed very high attention to detail, some of her tips were
extremely helpful. It is quite rare that a recruiter takes the time
to really understand what it is you want and what would suit both
your skill set and personality. I would highly recommend Laura and
hope to work with her in my new role.
Richard, February 2016
Laura is a very professional and experienced person who
gave me valuable advice for the interview process. I very much
liked working with Laura and highly recommend her.
Anne-Kathrin, February 2016
Daisy is a dedicated and incredibly friendly recruiter,
and is honestly the best I've ever worked with. She really paid
attention to my previous experience and listened to the type of
jobs I was looking for, and found me two roles that were great fits
for me, the most recent of which I am now in.
Daisy, February 2016
She was an excellent communicator, and made sure to check in
with me before and after my interviews to make sure I was prepared
and to see how they went, which I really appreciated. Thank you
again for all your hard work.
My time working with The Candidate was
short, which in itself is testament to the great work they do, as I
found employment within a number of weeks. I dealt directly with
Simon Rigby, who kept in contact touch with me throughout, keeping
me up to date as my case progressed and remaining available
whenever I needed him, including out of standard business
Simon was always keen to hear from me, and
was receptive of any questions I had. I'm grateful for the time and
work Simon put in to help me, and would rate my entire experience
with him and The Candidate extremely positively.
Conor, December 2015
I have recently worked with Dan to find my current
position. Throughout the process he has shown professionalism and
knowledge of his field. In addition he went above and beyond what
was expected of him to make sure I was well prepared and well
informed throughout. His follow up didn't stop after I secured my
job but continued well after that. Dan doesn't only get his job
done to a high standard but he is also good at building long
Rabih, December 2015
I joined The Candidate's recruitment services in
early October 2015 and liaised with Simon Rigby to secure my next
job, although this was a speedy process I managed to meet other
staff who were also brilliant.
Simon has a very friendly, determined approach to
recriutment and has an uplifting personality which makes him easy
to work with. He had shown a great level of care and attention to
my needs to find me the perfect nest, as I was looking to move from
London to Manchester.
He also demonstrated many strengths by going the
extra mile during the time we spoke, some examples of these are:
Understanding that I was not available during working hours,
therefore, he committed to assisting me throughout early morning
and late evenings, he also proofread any communications before
passing them across to Employers, guidance on presentations and
interview preparations, following up with me once a day and even
more at times. I am now working in an agency Manchester where I
have a strong career prospect and clear growth in my position.
Imtiaz, December 2015
Laura is professional, incredibly hard working (on
behalf of the client and the candidate) and has excellent knowledge
of her sector. It has been a pleasure working with her and I would
highly recommend Laura if you are seeking a new opportunity or
searching for your next great hire.
My job hunt had been really difficult until I was
contacted by Caldon for my current position. He not only supported
me during the whole process but helped me see how valid I was for
the position. His knowledge, advice and dedication helped me reach
that extra mile needed to be successful. I am very thankful for
having been contacted by Caldon and The Candidate. Now I can say I
have found what I wanted.
I have recently changed job and Caldon has helped me a lot
through all the recruitment process. His professionalism and
support are outstanding. He has always given me precious advice not
only during the preparation of the first interview but also for the
final stage. I would love to recommend him to anyone who is looking
for a new job in sales and marketing - commitment and passion for
his job have made him stand out from the crowd!
Martina, November 2015
I have really enjoyed working with Laura over the past few
weeks, and found her committed to the task at hand, whilst also
being extremely personable. I am delighted with my new role and
can't wait to get started. Nothing has been too much for Laura and
she has been truly dedicated to placing me in a great role. I would
100% recommend her to anyone looking for roles.

Fantastic recruiter! It has been my pleasure to meet and
work with Laura this past month.
Ellis, Display and Activiation Executive, October 15

ease with Laura and knew my career move was in good hands. She took
the time to know me and what roles would best suit both my skillset

friends, colleagues and employers. Laura has turned what can be an
extremely stressful experience into an absolute dream!

her knowledge of the industry she recruits for and her extremely
professional yet personal way of working.
Keiron, Marketing Manager, October 2015

roles and ones she genuinely thought matched my interests and

requirements, and within two weeks I had interviewed and found an

I first met Laura earlier this year and immediately liked
her. I was very impressed by the amount of time she gave to get to
know me as a candidate.
Daniel, Marketing Manager, September 2015
So it didn't come as a huge surprise when she secured a
fantastic role for me which I have recently accepted. Out of all
the recruiters I have worked with she has been the best at sourcing
the most suitable roles and keeping in touch.
I would highly recommend Laura to both candidates and
Daisy has a very friendly yet professional approach. She
helped me find a new role after 4 years within the same company,
taking into account my preferences and goals for the future. She
kept me up to date throughout the whole process via phone/email and
gave me all the information needed to give a good

professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone
going through the recruitment process.

Laura is fantastic at what she does and I wouldn't
hesitate recommending her. In fact, I would actively suggest her as
the first port of call if a friend were considering a career
Claire, Marketing Executive, August 2015
At the outset it was apparent that she was professional,
driven and clearly very passionate about matching her candidates to
the right company.
I have no doubt that Laura will continue to be successful in
her recruitment career moving forward.
Laura is a dedicated and hard working recruitment agent
who always go the extra mile to make sure you not only find the
right role but are fully prepared for interviews - checking
presentations and recommending improvements/amends even at the
weekend and long past normal office hours! I'd strongly recommend
her for both her enthusiasm and professionalism
Jenny, Digital Marketing Manager, August 2015
I received a phone call from Daisy just one hour after I applied
for the role 'photographer' for a leading fashion brand. Daisy
turned the conversation into a great career opportunity for me by
providing me with an exact job description as well as explaining
the company culture and personality fit. The amount of information
seemed colossal, however Daisy made it all sound clear and
understandable. Daisy managed my application for the role over the
course of a week. She was incredibly responsive and always happy to
answer every query I had. Although applying for the role was a very
tense time for me Daisy made the whole situation much less
stressful by giving me advice on what I need to prepare for an
interview. In the end, I was successful on that role and I am
really thankful to Daisy for the help and support I got from
Patryk, Photographer, August 2015
I really can't praise Daisy enough. Friendly,
professional, excellent communicator. I met Daisy through The

the interview and on my first day, which really helped me feel
good! She's a natural and I wish her a long and fruitful

on a job hunt, Laura will definitely do everything possible to
match you with the right employers
Having experienced many recruiters in the past, I can
safely say Caldon is by far the best! Not only did he go the extra
mile in helping me prepare for my interview, but he had excellent
communication skills and a deep in-depth knowledge within
eCommerce, which was extremely reassuring. Caldon was also on hand
to answer any questions or queries I had, no matter what time of
day it was. For this reason, I would highly recommend Caldon and
the people at The Candidate, for their assistance in helping me
find a new job opportunity.
David, CRM Executive, July 2015

candidates well after a similarly thorough research
Oliver, Digital and Creative Media Director, June 2015
Laura was really proactive from the moment I got in touch.
She was nothing but helpful and really supported me though the
interview process. She understood what I was looking for and only
suggested roles she felt would be a good fit, rather than adopting
the scatter gun approach which I found a lot of other recruiters
were using. I would definitely recommend working with Laura if you
are looking for a new role. Thanks for all your help!
Michelle, Email Marketing Manager, April 2015
I cannot thank "The Candidate recruitment team" enough for

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

recruitment process easier - it was definitely much less stressful
working with Laura than on any of the other applications I made.

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

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

step of the way from offering supportive phone calls before
interviews, after interviews and even on weekends. I could not

lucky to have had the chance to work with them in finding my

dedicates herself completely to her work with every ounce of
enthusiasm, ambition and professionalism, but who is a friend,

Channel which is so far going extremely well. I would certainly
recommend The Candidate.

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

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
Amy, PPC 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.
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

role, certainly more than I would have usually expected from a

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
Lauren, Copywriter, June 2014
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.
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 are one of the best recruitment agencies I

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
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
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,

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
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

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
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

they achieved within an amazing 2 week turnaround! I would
definitely recommend The Candidate to anyone as their service is
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.
