“My introduction to the team at The Candidate came in late 2018 around the time I was told that my role at my previous employer would soon be redundant. At the time I was considering a variety of opportunities and I was approached non-stop by recruiters from Manchester, many of whom were just a little bit irritating. During this time I was approached by The Candidate who had some extremely interesting opportunities to offer me.

However, I took the opportunity of redundancy as a chance to go self-employed and have a real go at running my own digital marketing consultancy. The was no animosity when I broke the news to the team at The Candidate and they completely understood that I wanted to give self-employment a shot. 

9 months later and slowly becoming fed-up with working for myself and clients who cared little about the work that was being done, I was approached again by Elliot from The Candidate. He came to me at the perfect time with an amazing opportunity I personally would never have thought I was qualified for. A few weeks later and I've been offered the role at an amazing company, within a team of passionate individuals.

I can't stress just how great Elliot and the team at the Candidate have been, and they're nothing less than an exceptional company. Unlike many recruiters I've been approached by these guys know the industry, they have a strong grasp on what certain roles require which I think helped massively as I wasn't simply bombarded with hundreds of jobs I "might" like. They understood my needs and have found me a role that for the first time in years, I can honestly say I can't wait to start!”

My experience with the candidate has been nothing but positive. Sophie has been amazing throughout and continues to boost my confidence/spirits every time we speak. Sophie has been super reliable and even taking time whilst on her holidays to update me on the status of roles. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for me so far. The Candidate has the most wonderful staff!

Laura was fantastic and really supported me from start to end. She saw how my CV fitted what the client was looking for and she was right- this was because she was so passionate and knew so much about the client that she knew I was perfect for the role! Laura is also a really friendly and genuine person making job hunting as a Candidate, fun and enjoyable- something I have never experienced before!

Amazing team at the candidate! They managed to place me in three jobs in the past 5 years and always had a great experience. They know their stuff and always put forward relevant interesting roles for you.
