  • ​I’ve worked with Amelia as both a recruiter and candidate for a number of years.

    As a candidate, I’ve really valued and trusted Amelia’s insights into an organisation’s team and culture, alongside a thorough understanding of the opportunity itself. I’ve felt fully prepped and prepared by Amelia before interview who is always happy to provide more info, update and advise throughout the process.

    As a client, I recognise the importance for Amelia to take the time to understand exactly what the role and team needs so that the whole recruitment process is as effective and positive as possible. It is a pleasure to work with Amelia

  • Ben helped me to gain my dream job.

    I found Ben really helpful, attentive, friendly, professional and responsive. Where most agency contacts I dealt with had poor or virtually no communication after the initial contact they made, Ben was always on hand to advise and update me as I went through the process. What I really liked about Ben and Charity People is that he gave me pre-interview advice and help, taking the time to prepare me beforehand.

    I would not hesitate in recommending him.

  • Working with Alice has been a real pleasure right from the beginning.

    Moving into the Charity Sector was a big step for me and Alice was incredibly supportive throughout the entire process. Alice always kept me in the loop and I really felt like she was representing me brilliantly to potential employers. I am thrilled to have secured my first role with her guidance and I would highly recommend her services to anyone seeking a job in this area.

  • Ben made applying for a job…OK. He was the positive force that you need before an interview, making you feel as prepared as you could be.

    Ben was always approachable and helpful should I have any questions or things I was worrying about. And most importantly, he helped me get the job of my dreams!

  • Stuart truly went the extra mile - he grasped the issues surrounding my situation (long story!) and took them seriously. This included getting me through the door and, ultimately, forward to employment in the quickest time possible.

    I know how hard he worked to do this and he kept in constant touch throughout, so I really did feel I was kept informed. He's also great to chat to and his people skills are exemplary.

  • Zelda is a true professional with high personal touch.

    She has a very humane approach and comes across as a very warm person. As one of her clients, I have found her very approachable. She truly listens and shows her belief in the person she is interacting with. I interacted with several other recruitment consultants, but Zelda stood out amongst all of them.

    She is upbeat, dynamic, professional, supportive and dedicated to finding the right fit for employer and employee. I highly recommend her; she is a recruiter who cares

  • I've had an incredibly positive experience working with Zelda. She was meticulous in finding positions she felt would be suited to my skill set and encouraging and helpful ahead of interviews. She is extremely professional, and I will certainly be turning to Zelda when I need the assistance of a recruiter in future.

  • Neil is one of the most professional recruiters I've had the pleasure of working with.

    Neil's understanding of the Charity industry is extensive, he uses this knowledge alongside his expertise to communicate proactively, efficiently and directly with his candidates, offering quality advice and relevant opportunities. What is extremely refreshing is that Neil has the interest of both his clients and candidates on equal level which allows for better placements. I've been Neil's candidate and will soon be Neil's client based on my experience.
