  • I recently had the pleasure of speaking to Katie from Reality Recruitment.I applied for various roles and wasn't getting much of a response from any of them. Katie found my CV online and sourced a job I hadn't seen advertised anywhere.She contacted me and explained the role and managed to arrange an interview. I was fully briefed on what was to be expected of me in the interview and kept in contact with me, informing me of every step.She fully understood my existing work commitments and arranged my second interview at a time that suited me.She is by far the best recruitment consultant I have ever had contact with and would implore anybody else to accept her help with any future job applications.I am now in a job that I really enjoy with lots of things to learn and it is all down to the fact that Katie recognised my particular skill set and matched it perfectly.

  • I'd just like to say it was fantastic that you replied so quickly to my email after having applied to the role on reed. To me, this shows that you not only shortlist people simply based on their C.V. but definitely look into the personality and enthusiasm of candidates too, which of course is great for your clients. Throughout, you were prompt in terms of calling me, especially when giving feed back indicating that you are very efficient in liaising between clients and candidates. The service from you and Reality Recruitment was efficient and most certainly approachable and you work quickly to place the right candidate into the right role for your clients.
