Prestige Appointments provided a professional service when looking for my next career move. They listened to what type of position I was seeking and matched my skills and experience as well as a position where I could develop them.
So many agencies do not put a candidate before a client but I found that Prestige appointments treat both parties as important as the other.
Adele is a true recruitment professional, a superb communicator and spends time ensuring her candidates are very well matched to specific positions; highly recommended as a recruitment consultant
My job search was a challenging one, having had a successful HR career in the City of London for many years I took a break and tried a totally new job as a ‘Mum’ this is a great job and something I have now done for 7 years! I had often dreamt of having the best of both worlds, being a Mum and having a career but it is difficult to find a challenging role with exciting projects on a part time basis and when I have not worked for 7 years, this is where Prestige Appointments really helped me. Following a meeting with Adele she really believed in me, we spoke about the skills I needed to refresh and Prestige were even able to provide online software training. The end result is I start my new role as a part-time HR Advisor in Sept 2015 and still get to keep the job as Mum. A professional and support agency.
Prestige Appointments really do have something to celebrate about, in my opinion they have reached their 10th year as their service is outstanding, a credible agency with a genuine desire to place people in well matched opportunities. They changed my life in 2014 when they found me my current role as I could not be happier. The team at Prestige are real people, we have built a respected friendship, I even spoilt them with flowers! I recommended their service and as a result another successful placement occurred and I enjoyed being thanked with a referral voucher, thank you Prestige Appointments.
There are certainly many recruitment websites out there which offer false promises, and considering the whole agency process can be both time consuming and tedious, false hope is very frustrating for a candidate. I think this is a huge challenge as I am sure I'm not the only one who immediately expects bad service from recruitment agencies. Thankfully though I never experienced this with you guys. Right from the start the service you gave me was honest, consistent and refreshingly efficient. What I valued the most was your speed and how down to earth your staff are, there is nothing worse than an insincere recruiter and Prestige are certainly not this.
I would definitely recommend you to others and if needed use you again (hopefully that won't be the case though!!).
Prestige appointments have proved to be a very unique recruitment consultancy and one I would highly recommend. They differ from many consultants I have dealt with, in that they took time to learn about me in addition to my academic and work experiences. They also treated me as a person and not just another CV in their files. Both demonstrated their genuine interest in putting me forward for THE position for me and not just filling vacancies they have.
Their professional approach to the whole process meant that I felt relaxed from start to finish, they was there at each step of the selection process should I have a question and also to gain and provide feedback at all stages.
Having been successful in the selection process, I have now started in my new role which I am thrilled about. I cannot thank the team enough for their dedication and support.
Adele is one of the most talented recruiters I have met, she went above and beyond. Not only did she make sure I was right for the company, but also that the company was right for me, and then offered advice and assistance prior to the interviews and followed up post interview to give feedback on my performance.
I would highly recommend Adele.
James has always impressed me greatly; his approach, professionalism and level of support are second to none. James went the extra mile to find the right role for me and I have been pleased by the service that has provided. He has always taken a great deal of time to brief me about the selection process and the requirements and he made sure that I will be a strong fit to my current employer, James provided me with invaluable service.
“Prestige Appointments successfully placed me, effectively matching my skills with the client’s requirements. I was highly impressed as to how quickly Prestige Appointments found work for me, particularly the kind of work that I was looking for. They showed in-depth industry knowledge as well as an extensive understanding of my requirements. The politeness, willingness and determination of the staff members working on my behalf were excellent. The regular communication showed that they took an interest in me. They were incredibly helpful in identifying my strengths and weaknesses, and in particular they helped me to prepare for my interview.
I am delighted with my new role and would highly recommend Prestige Appointments to anyone who is looking for a job.”
I found the level of service and support provided to me by Adele from Prestige Appointments outstanding. From an encouraging telephone interview at the start of the recruitment process to the end when I was offered a job, Adele was on hand to provide helpful tips and advice. What I found really great about Prestige Appointments was how fast they moved- I applied for a job, had a telephone interview with Adele and secured a face to face interview with the company on the same day, feedback was provided as soon as it was received and helpful tips were given before and on the morning of my interview which were invaluable. Having previously been unsuccessful at interview in my job search, I was so pleased to obtain a job first time round with Prestige Appointments. I would highly recommend the services of Adele and Prestige Appointments.
I would recommend Prestige Appointments, as they are one step ahead of the rest. Adele Squires helped me through all the stages of the recruitment process with The Access Group, to finally get to an outcome, of being offered a role of employment.
I found my experience with Prestige Appointments unrivalled. The approach was personal, information and contact was made often enough to keep me feeling up to date. I was fortunate enough to receive feedback throughout the assessment day, which gave me the confidence to alter my approach to the given tasks. I was given feedback at one point which I do not feel other recruitment consultants would have proffered. Although brutally honest, I believe that the advice and guidance given instilled in me the true grit and determination needed to persuade the interviewers I was the right candidate for them.”
Having worked both with Adele as a candidate and as a supplier, I found Adele's knowledge, enthusiasm and passion refreshing in an industry that sometimes gets a poor press. I have no reservations about recommending Adele and Prestige Appointments.
I would thoroughly recommend Prestige Appointments Recruitment agency not only because I am now working in my dream job, but I am doing so because of the generous amounts of support and advice given to me by Adele Squires. Within a day of applying for a job online, I received a phone call from Adele at Prestige Appointments. After getting to know one another a little better and a further explanation of what the role included, Adele informed me about the interview details and a task that I had to complete. I found Adele professional, knowledgeable and most importantly approachable. I spoke to her several times in the week running up to my interview with regards to the task and general interview queries and she was the first one I contacted after the interview was over. I found Adele to be organised and driven, providing masses of support throughout the entire process. She was a pleasure to work with and has my highest recommendation..
I have worked with some of the biggest recruitment agencies both in the UK and globally as both a candidate and as a client. I always had the same experience, recruiters are slow to respond to emails and calls and they also tried to speak to me about roles that were of no interest. Prestige Appointments are very different. They are a very personable and extremely professional. Adele and the team really get to know their candidates to ensure the right fit for the company they are acting for. They are really open and honest and are always available to speak with you. I always felt their complete support throughout the interview process. I can't recommend them enough!
Adele matched me with a great role and from start to finish has been exceptional. The preparation given in terms of her time and expertise is second to none right down to providing an interview pack just in case something should be accidentally overlooked. Of course she expects you to do your homework well but in all areas you are in good hands. In my career to date she is the best I have come across.
The thing that impressed me the most is that Prestige as a company took considerable efforts to not just understand me as a candidate buy also as a person. The initial talks which were in depth, probably to find out what I was like as a person and what I hoped to achieve in my career, were great.
Prestige will always be the first as and when or should I say "if" I move on from my current employer. However I can't see this happening in the near future as this is my dream job which has given me more job satisfaction in the last 15 months than in the 15 years previous to it.
Prestige. If I were to sum it up......they take the time to not only get to know their customers (employers), but also their candidates. Finding the right candidate for the employer and more importantly the right employer for the candidate.
Adele Squires has over the years taken the time to understand me, my skills, background, experience and what’s important to me – hence secure the right opportunity. Adele has never failed. I have found Prestige to be honest, extremely professional, and an easy to get along with team. What you see is what you get - no gimmicks, just a hard working team that understands you!
I have worked with James on a number of occasions both as a client (hiring manager) and as an applicant.
Business: James always exceeds expectations and delivers a quality service, he is professional, honest, conscientious, motivated and very personable. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any business. James is a true asset to his company and if I had a chance I would steel him away.
Personal: James is all of the above and a little more
