We are a small, predominantly family based Exhibition stand design and build company and were looking to hire our first Business Development Manager. We decided to work with Live Recruitment after they introduced themselves to us at a show that we were exhibiting at in an approachable and friendly manner that stuck with us as it did not feel pushy. Mollie was designated to manage the role and has been great to work with, I felt that she had a genuine interest in our business and finding not just the right experience, but also the right fit for our business. Mollie regularly kept me up to do about the role and provided great advice on the market and appropriate candidates. I would definitely use Live Recruitment service again if we ever have future staffing needs.
Laura was fantastic throughout the whole process from finding the perfect job through to the onboardings process. Definitely the best recruitment agency I've interacted with, massively recommended.
The team at Live Recruitment are outstanding. They possess a wealth of knowledge, contacts and opportunities. I found the whole team to be professional and supportive throughout. Highly recommended!
Laura Sidhu was extremely helpful in sourcing candidates and seeing through to the end of the very challenging recruitment process for our Project Manager vacancy. Laura was very proactive in finding and approaching candidates and never lost patience when faced with our strict selection criteria. We have now appointed an excellent candidate. It was our first experience working with Live Recruitment and I will not hesitate to approach them again in the future
Megan at Live Recruitment was so helpful and supportive with my job search. She was always on hand to answer any questions and to run through top tips ahead of interviews. Megan took the time to listen and understand what I was after in my next career step and cared about finding the right match.
I found Live Recruitment to be professional and very efficient. The whole experience which only lasted a few days, because they found me a suitable candidate within 48 hours, made recruiting for my team a very pleasant experience.
