Here at The Candidate it's hard to keep a track who's joining
the team and who's getting promotions. It's been another successful
quarter, adding to our most successful year to date!
We've had two new starters and two internal promotions within
the last month (you should see how many bagels we go through a
The faces you already know are Daisy and Caldon who are
recruitment professionals for everything eCommerce.
Caldon has been with The Candidate for a little under a year
and has already used his compelling personality plus his drive to
excel in everything he does to become the Senior Recruitment
Consultant for the eCommerce team. He is keen to always match the
right candidate to their dream job, which has resulted in receiving
remarkable feedback from candidates and clients alike, consequently
landing himself the next best step in his own career!
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. -
After my experience in
dealing with different recruiters during my job search, I can say
with confidence that Caldon Henson has been the most trustworthy
and reliable of them all. He makes the recruitment process a
pleasant and personalised journey from start to finish, not to
mention the professionalism and expertise that he delivers. I would
highly recommend Caldon. Thanks again for finding the right job for
me. - Beatriz, 2015
Then we have
Daisy, who bounced into the office just six months ago and
has already been promoted to eCommerce Recruiter. She excelled at
the challenge of finding each of her candidates the perfect job.
You only need to view her candidate feedback as evidence of her
passion and commitment. She was initially a part of the candidate
process, however fell in love with The Candidate's Clients too and
has moved on to dealing with her own client base also. It's a
credit to Daisy's resilience and work ethic that she has come so
far in just six months!
Daisy is a dedicated and
an 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. 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. - Cat,
I really can't praise
Daisy enough. Friendly, professional, excellent communicator. I met
Daisy through The Candidate as I was looking for work and she
matched me up with a job and company I adore. She even checked up
on me before and after 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 career! - Kathlyn, 2015
