I had a good impression of Stafffinders right from the moment I registered. I sent my CV in response to a job advert I had seen and heard back from the recruitment consultant quickly. She was extremely helpful, and talked me through all of the duties I would have to make sure I felt comfortable with them, and she helped make registering and interviewing less daunting. I was given support both before and after the interview, and in the gap between my interview and start date she kept in touch to make sure I was still happy to go ahead. Having started the assignment, I have found that this level of support and encouragement has not faltered – I have been able to contact Michelle and Stafffinders whenever I’ve had a query and they’ve always been able to help me quickly. I would recommend registering with Stafffinders to anyone looking for work!
