New Managing Director at Cherry Professional
"Having previously used other agencies for office roles, Cherry Professional has renewed my faith in a Consultant’s ability to listen and address a brief correctly. The calibre of candidates was a level above those seen previously. As for Lucy who managed our account, she is a real credit to Cherry Professional. Especially considering I only found out later on she had not been in the role long. It did not show due to her professionalism and enthusiasm to fully address the project brief."
Derby - General Manager, Medartis UK Ltd
"Joel is an excellent communicator. He understands the client needs and goes out of his way to ensure he meets those needs.

Nothing was too much trouble for Joel and I found doing business with him a pleasure."

She listened to our requirements and quickly presented me with two candidates. Both candidates were amongst the most suitable we had seen and we made a successful offer to one of them. The quick response and interest in our business shown by Katie was a refreshing change to some of our previous experiences."
Nottingham - Chief Operating Officer, Van Style Ltd
"Cherry Professional approached me in regards to Marketing vacancy we were recruiting for. Two representatives, Joel and James came to meet me from their two divisions, Office Support and Finance, to gain a full understanding how they could assist our needs. Due to our business needs, we often had to interview at unsociable times and at short notice however Joel was always available on call to assist us and provide advice even late into the evening which is something I did not receive from other recruiters. Our recruitment method was extensive and all candidates and I were kept fully informed throughout the process. I would recommend Cherry Professional for providing a full service and for always being available on call for support. I would happily approach them in the future."
Nottingham - Personal Assistant, Clearwater Corporate Finance LLP

I've always found Martin to be professional, personable and a pleasure to do business with. In my experience of dealing with recruitment consultants, Martin (and Cherry Professional) is head and shoulders above the competition and would always be my first port of call should a vacancy arise.

Nottingham - Head of Product Profitability, Welcome Financial Services
"I have worked with Martin on both sides of the fence (he has placed me and he has placed people for me) and I have always found him to be the consumate professional. He is a genuinely good guy who will listen to what the client wants and then only put forward those people that match the role. This saves lots of time and means that you end up with a short list of candidates that could all do the role. This makes the whole recruitment process stress free. Whenever I need to recruit, I always go to Martin and Cherry Professional."

Nottingham - Office Manager, EDF Tax LLP
"Miriam successfully placed a role that we had been working on for 9 months with little success. We ultimately received an individual with a very niche skill set that we had all but given up on finding due to our geographical location within our market sector (we are based outside of London). From the first interview, it was clear that Miriam had taken the time to meet with the candidate, understand their motivations and aspirations, as well as preparing them in depth for the requirements of our business. Throughout the process, Miriam's communication was professional and concise and it felt as if she was always acting in the best interest of both us as the client and also for the candidate.
We are happy to testify that the experience of Cherry Professional, in particular Miriam Parris, was very positive and one that we would use again for future projects."
Staffordshire - Managing Partner, Future Executive Search
"Very pleased with the service received and the efficient and professional approach adopted throughout the recruitment of a specialist role.

Again many thanks for your help!!"

A straightforward, quick and thorough recruitment process. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again."
Nottingham - Financial Controller, Roko Health Clubs Ltd
"The recruitment process went very well and Cherry Professional remained professional and responsive to our requests throughout. We used their offices for interviews which were organised very well. Unlike some other agencies they weren't pushy and avoided the sales pitch and I would have no hesitation in engaging their services again. The only shame is that we couldn't do more business with them on this occasion."
Nottingham - Chief Financial Officer, AmTrust Europe Ltd
"I was given one weeks notice by my credit controller that they were leaving which meant I needed to act quickly to find a replacement. I called Cherry Professional who met with me the same day and provided me with a shortlist of relevant candidates.

"Once again, thank you for your assistance in filling our vacancy. The CVs that you provided us with were all very good, and matched up with what we were looking for – it felt like you’d listened to what we were after. I’m sure it also helped that yourself and Simon took the time to come out and visit us to get a feel for the working atmosphere. Personality was always going to be important to us, given that we work in a small team.
It was also very useful that you were able to get candidates to us at short notice. We were working to a very tight timescale and I’m sure having Oliver with us on Monday will be beneficial to both ourselves and him."
Nottingham - Chief Accountant, See Tickets
"I used a number of agencies when recruiting for the position of Finance Systems Manager, but the CVs provided did not meet all of my requirements. Cherry provided a stronger and broader selection of candidates for the role as they listened and proactively acted on my requirements and ongoing feedback. As a result I was able to identify and appoint an excellent candidate provided by Cherry. I would not hesitate in recommending Martin based on the excellent service that I received."
Nottingham - Financial Controller, Loomis

The turnaround before interviews was extremely quick and the calibre of the candidates was such that we could have employed any one of them; the successful candidate will certainly bring a new perspective to the role and inject the fresh enthusiasm into the team that I had been looking for. I would not hesitate in using Cherry Professional again should we need to and have recommended them to the wider group."
Derby - General Manager, Nuffield Health Derby Hospital
"After an unsuccessful attempt at direct recruitment of a senior finance manager, we appointed and were advised by Cherry Professional to recruit this post. I am delighted to say that following interviews with the candidates supplied, we could have appointed any of the five we saw, and the most difficult decision was in choosing which one should be offered the post. We would have no hesitation in recommending Cherry Professional’s services."
Derby - Regional Finance Manager, Nuffield Health Derby Hospital

It is this tremendous consistency that has made Martin a truly reliable resource to me over such a long period of time."
Nottingham - Finance Director, Vision Express (UK) Ltd
"With a recruitment agency it’s the individual consultants and not the company itself that really counts. I was recommended to contact Cherry Professional by a colleague at BMI to recruit an Engineering Accountant. They kept me informed with good communication and provided insightful analysis on the role and the candidates they presented. Simon kept the candidates informed and ensured a speedy process. Ultimately the proof was in the pudding and I hired an excellent candidate who has now joined my team and is doing very well."
Derbyshire - Financial Controller - financial accounts, bmi
"Cherry Professional recruited two people for my team and provided a very efficient service. Having briefed them on the role they liaised with other members of my team to arrange interviews and engaged me at the right times with updates and at second interview stage.
Simon and Martin at Cherry Professional gave their expert opinion on the candidates presented at shortlist and their suitability for our business. They provided me with an extra pair of eyes and their thoughts were very reassuring in ultimately deciding who to appoint.
We saved lots of time and only saw 3 or 4 people for each role and successfully recruited both positions.
I highly recommend Cherry Professional to other businesses looking to recruit."
Staffordshire - Head of Business Finance, Nord Anglia Education Ltd
"I’ve known Simon at Cherry Professional for many years as he placed me at Imagelinx. Knowing me and my business he was first choice when I needed to recruit a Financial Controller. As I didn’t want lots of calls from other recruitment agencies and prefer one point of contact I agreed exclusivity and knew that Simon and the Cherry Professional team would find me the right person.
From 3 CVs I hired an excellent candidate with the right skill set and personality fit for Imagelinx, she has now started and is doing extremely well.
Dealing with recruitment consultants has never been such a smooth and enjoyable experience. I have no hesitation in recommending Cherry Professional to anyone else looking to recruit."
Nottinghamshire - Financial Director, Imagelinx
"I would like to thank the team at Cherry Professional for all their efforts in finding a suitable candidate for our credit controller vacancy.
The option of temp to perm meant we could be sure the candidate was right for us before offering a permanent position. Danielle took the time to understand our needs so the candidate could be closely matched to our requirements. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Cherry Professional again for any future recruitment needs."
Nottingham - Group Financial Controller, Staffline Group plc
"Cherry Professional worked very well and did an excellent job of listening and getting the candidate profile right. This included matching the right technical skills along with personality fit for the business.
Simon at Cherry Professional was very timely in keeping in touch and following up after interviews and all 3 positions were recruited successfully within my timescales. He remained flexible and adapted to changes in my thought processes and within the business very quickly in addition to helping me work out where things fitted together.
From 3 CVs I was able to recruit my Financial Controller and the other positions were also recruited from very short candidate shortlists saving me time spent interviewing.
Cherry Professional offered a very professional service and I knew the Directors of the business were utilising their extensive experience and recruiting the roles themselves as opposed to doing an initial meeting and then passing the work onto a more junior member of staff. I knew that Simon would represent to the candidates the culture of White Young Green International accurately.
Overall I’m extremely pleased with the service I received and would have no hesitation in engaging their services again or recommending them to others."
Nottinghamshire - Finance Director, WYG International Ltd
"As a company that relies heavily on skilled personnel, we were very pleased with the quality of applicants recommended by Cherry Professional provided at short notice. Danielle’s approach was extremely professional and friendly, making the whole recruitment process trouble free."
Nottingham - Senior Finance Assistant, Source BioScience plc
"There are really only a few people in your market that truly listen to find out what I need and then go off and match it precisely to the skills and character required. You are one of them and are highly regarded by me.
Of course it helps even more that the trust is already there from a fair few years of knowing each other from a candidate point of view, so by knowing me and what I am all about, you then know what type of people I need to help me in trying to make organisations leaner, fitter and with more of a purpose to get things done."
Leicester - Finance Director, W R Refrigeration
"Danielle is a recruiter of the highest calibre. Always willing to go the extra mile to find and secure the right candidate, Danielle has the ability to understand your brief and supply first class, relevant candidates. Danielle is committed to her clients and works fast and effectively. I would gladly utilise Danielle's services again and would recommend her without hesitation."
Derbyshire - General Manager Finance, bmi
"I was really happy with the way Cherry Professional handled the process. Danielle started working straight away. She really engaged with what I was looking for from the position. I was impressed by how well, and how quickly, she ‘tuned in’ to what I needed.
She gave me regular updates, and I always felt confident that Cherry Professional was working hard to get me the right candidate. What was different compared to other agencies is that they weren’t just trying to match CVs to my job specification. They were trying to find me someone who would fit well within our organisation and excel. I was very impressed."

I felt that the 1st interview had been done already before I met candidates.The speed of response was excellent and the process was managed extremely well. I was given good advice on salary and levels of candidate in the market to determine what I needed to pay to get the right person. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cherry Professional to anyone else looking to recruit."
Nottinghamshire - Finance Director, 4energy Ltd
"Despite coming into the process at the back end after other agencies had been consulted Cherry Professional was able to fill both positions quickly and efficiently.
From the two CVs sent we found two good candidates, you can’t get better than a couple of CVs and a couple of placements.
Having been bombarded with CVs by other agencies in the past I was really happy with this targeted and specific approach. They listened really well and found us candidates that fitted the bill and turned things round quickly.
The next time something comes up in our business Cherry Professional will be the first to hear about it."
Buckinghamshire - Senior FP&A Manager, Greenstar Ltd
"The next time I need to recruit a finance role, Cherry Professional is the first company that I will call.

What works for them and certainly for me is that they understand what I’m looking for and they invest the time to deliver candidates that I know will suit. The end result has been that whether working in large blue chip finance teams or smaller startup operations I’ve been able to rely on them to swiftly provide me with people who succeed in their roles."

Martin also has the gift of making you feel that he has all the time in the world to devote to you and is a great listener. Many people in the recruitment industry have similar attributes but what sets Martin apart from the rest is his simple honesty. In all my years in finance I have met no one in the industry that is as trustworthy as Martin; this to me is unique in the industry. I wish Martin and the team every success in the future and I will not hesitate to use the services provided by Cherry Professional."

"Having been on a career break for 3 years to spend time with my young children, I had decided it was time to return to work.

The support I received was first class and I would and will be recommending Cherry Professional to any friends looking at using an agency. The support after starting was also first class, with regular catch ups to ensure that I was settling in well. Thanks again."
James - Accountant, Nottingham
"I found myself looking for a new position after 30 years with my previous employer and had registered on some national job sites. I had not registered with Cherry Professional and was surprised to get a call from a lady called Katie Delahunty - she was looking to fill a temporary position and had matched my experience to her clients requirements -this shows Cherry Professional going that extra mile for the firms that use them in their search for staff. From my perspective I found Katie very helpful and professional - she has also discussed my CV with her colleagues and is looking to see if they can match my experience with a more permanent position. The documentation and instructions I received were very clear, detailed and contained easy to follow links to access all relevant forms etc 5 star service."

Heather - Payroll Administrator, Nottingham
"Nicola and Martin treated me as a person. They were enthusiastic, cared passionately about what they did and how they treated their candidates. The ability to see the person seems sadly lacking in the majority of the recruitment firms that I have dealt with in the past. This is certainly not the case with Cherry, they are professional, attentive and understanding. They want to fit the correct person to the right role. I can’t recommend Cherry highly enough."

Gillian - Payroll Assistant, Nottinghamshire
"Martin worked extremely hard to understand our business and processes at Capital One, and as a result was able to provide a string of great candidates. This helped deliver real savings to the business as he never brought me a list of candidates we had to whittle down - his CV to hire ratio was around 2.5:1, meaning we didn't have to invest time in interviews and testing that we didn't need to - he'd done the hard work for us. When you put that with Martin's affable personality and ease to do business with, and I would still actively choose to deal with Martin, around 15 years after we first started then you have a winning combination."
Scott - Senior Financial Analysis, Manchester
"I had never heard of Cherry Professional but found them via a job site and I am now getting ready to start the job they found for me… Their service and approach leaves some of the “big recruitment” agencies standing. Here I was not a CV but a person, and they treated me as such. Jo was always available to take my calls but if she was busy always called back as promised. What more can I say – they were brill!"

Helen Glover - Receptionist, Derby
"Having been on the job market for a while, I was stuck on a merry go round of meeting agencies and it never going anywhere or worse being pushed to consider unsuitable roles or made to feel guilty if I didn’t jump at everything run past me. It was great to finally find an agency that actually listened to me, wanted to know what I wanted and understood when I said I did not feel the role was suitable. I now have a role that is perfect for me and this is all thanks to the professional and personal service I received at Cherry Professional."
Rowena Johnston-Aiken - Finance Manager, Nottinghamshire
"Just a big thank you for helping me back up the ladder."
Moany Hubert - Payroll Clerk, Derby
"On meeting Martin, he listened to what I wanted rather than forcing me down a route that I did not want to go like other recruiters do. He wanted to help me find a role that would suit my strengths and personality traits, rather than maximizing commissions as other recruiters do. He was helpful through the whole process from start to finish and I have already recommended him to others. Thanks for your help."
Robert Teare - Group Reporting & Tax Accountant, Nottingham
"Thank so much for everything Miriam. It's lovely dealing with yourself and Cherry Professional. Your approach is very refreshing as you actually consider the roles and whether they are right for the candidate rather than just trying to pressure candidates to put themselves forward for everything as many of the other agencies do. You also kept me fully informed, even if there wasn't anything to report!
If I'm ever looking for, or recruiting for a future role, I will certainly be in touch."
Jemma Taylor - Marketing Manager, Nottingham
"Great personal service and sound advice After dealing with many of the larger accountancy and finance agencies in the area, it was a breath of fresh air to deal with Cherry and be treated as an individual and be given honest and constructive advice. I was rather daunted at the prospect of moving sectors, but all the team at Cherry gave me tailored advice on how to approach my job search and highlighted the strengths in my CV that employers in the Nottingham area were looking for. Thank you to all the team for the excellent communication and for matching me to my ideal role. Highly recommended."

I couldn’t recommend Cherry Professional highly enough."
Stephanie Purchase - Project Administrator, Nottingham

Gareth Windibank - Credit Controller, Nottingham
"I was impressed with the professional and speedy recruitment service offered by Miriam Parris at Cherry Professional. At our introductory meeting, Miriam was able to give a full and informed briefing on her client’s business and the potential opportunity. Thereafter there was just one whirlwind week from first client meeting, to second interview and then offer stage. At all times Miriam was consistently tracking progress, keeping me updated and ultimately negotiating on my behalf. It is refreshing to find a recruiter who is genuinely committed to, and effectively balances, the interests of both candidate and client. I would certainly be happy to recommend Cherry Professional to others."

Jo was great at keeping me up-to-date with the process, giving me background info on the company and advice before interviews. Her approach is very hands on.

Victoria Bateman - Accounts Assistant, Derbyshire
"Six months ago I drove past the KPMG office in Leicester and said to my husband - 'this is where I want to be!'
Six months later I found Cherry Professional - and my career dream has come true!
My name is Sameea. I was born in Leicester but moved at a young age to Zimbabwe, where I was raised and educated. Having selected Accounting as my career vocation, I started ACCA in 2007 successfully graduating as an ACCA affiliate in 2009. Marriage brought me to England in March 2010, where my successful career progression experienced a setback.
After taking a few months off to acclimatise to my new environment I got busy applying for jobs and registered with almost every recruitment agency in the region.
I was told I had a brilliant CV and presented myself extremely well but with no UK based experience my skills were less marketable. I was persuaded to try starting out with a smaller practice and working my way up to a Big Four firm, taking on temporary roles in the meantime to obtain UK based experience, but all these opportunities meant I would be taking my career backwards.
I had found Cherry Professional by chance browsing job vacancies, and emailed across my CV with the usual optimism. I didn't expect to receive a call that very same day. Simon Gray a Director of the business saw great potential in my CV and wanted to know more about my career plans. I certainly didn't expect the response I was about to receive as two days later, Simon rang me to say - 'Sameea, how would you like to interview with KPMG next week?'
Cherry Professional listened to what I really wanted and made it happen for me; no excuses, no setbacks and no delays. What Simon did next showed me that Cherry Professional are not only the best at what they do, that they have a real passion.
I had very little interview experience in the UK and Simon not only took the time out to meet with me but also shared his 'classified top secret' interview success tips and coached me on how to react to competency based interviews, which was a new experience for me. He even mock interviewed me twice over the telephone before my KPMG Partner interview.
I received a text from Cherry Professional before each interview telling me I would do great! Because they believed I could do it, I believed I could do it too!
I have now started with KPMG and am loving my new job and am extremely grateful to Simon and Cherry Professional for making my career dream come true."
Sameea Patel - Auditor, Leicester
"Upon the recommendation of a friend I got in touch with Cherry Professional and I’m glad I did. I went and met Danielle and had an honest and informative chat about what I wanted and how to go about getting it, this made a refreshing change from the usual agency experience and filled me with confidence. After this I was in almost daily correspondence and within a short period Cherry had lined me up for multiple interviews. They did not stop there either; helping me with interview preparation. The overall experience was excellent and I would not hesitate to use Cherry in the future."
Philip Wright - Analyst, Derbyshire
"Cherry Professional offer a really friendly and helpful service. They have helped me start my dream career straight after graduating (which is rare for graduates at the moment)."
Oliver Crisp - Fund Accounting Assistant, Derby
"The clue is in the name – ‘Professional’ – I was signed on with half a dozen agencies and Cherry stood out from all the rest. They kept me updated but didn’t bombard me and put me forward for relevant positions not just the ones they needed filling. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again if I was looking or recruiting."
Kate Simpson - Accounts Payable Manager, Nottinghamshire
"In November I was told I would be made redundant at the end of January, along with 6 of my colleagues. I contacted Cherry Professional to help in my search for work, and also registered with a number of other agencies. Cherry were indeed very professional and approachable which made an extremely stressful time much easier for me. They kept in contact with me letting me know of any vacancies and posts that were both relevant to my skills and abilities, in addition to matching my expectations in regards to location and salary. Even during the interview process they gave me advice and support ensuring that my first interview in over 25 years was not a traumatic one, which resulted in me getting work starting in February. Three of my former colleagues also registered with Cherry and they have also been found work by them. I would highly recommend Cherry Professional to help you find work with their honest, professional and trustworthy service. If I was unfortunate enough to find myself out of work again, Cherry would most definitely be my first point of call."
Heidi Marshall - Ledger Supervisor, Nottingham
"I have known the Cherry team as both a client and candidate for many years and would not hesitate to recommend them in either capacity. "
Steve Davies - Cost Accountant , Derbyshire
"I was extremely happy with the care and effort made. I was kept informed, looked after and generally helped throughout the whole process."
Mojahid Miah - Accounts Administrator, Nottingham
"From the moment I registered with Cherry Professional the service I received was excellent, extremely professional. I felt that my requirements were listened to and Cherry did not have the “bums on seats” attitude that many of the Agencies have. Within 3 weeks of being made redundant, Danielle found the perfect role for me and with her help and guidance and within a week (!) I was offered the role so a huge Thank you! (especially to Danielle!). I highly recommend Cherry Professional and would not hesitate using them again in the future. Thanks again!"
Jo Richmond - Assistant Accountant, Nottingham
"Cherry Professional were very proactive in finding suitable roles, setting up interviews and providing feedback. Moreover, they demonstrated a great willingness to give advice and support in preparation for the interview. All consultants I dealt with were extremely affable, and I'd like to thank them for their help."
Matthew Doherty - Fund Accounting Assistant, Nottingham
"I felt that Cherry Professional really listened to what I want from my next job. They kept me regularly updated and were not constantly harassing me about my other interviews like other agencies. I would highly recommend their service and a big thank you - especially to Danielle!"
Lawrence Aycrigg-Tate - Purchase Ledger Clerk, Nottingham
"This Agency is different they treat you like a person and not a product. All the people I have dealt with at Cherry were interested in getting me the right job, not just bums on seats!"
Linda Jackson - Credit Controller, Nottingham
"I was very happy with the service Cherry Professional provided me with as I felt that they had a good understanding of what I was looking for."

Lindsay Cook - Sales Ledger/Cashier, Nottinghamshire
"I was very impressed by the professional and friendly level of service I received from Cherry Professional which resulted in a successful search for a new role. This top class service continued throughout the process and included constructive advice on my CV, support given prior to interview and feedback following interview. I will definitely utilise Cherry’s services in the future and recommend them to anyone looking for a career move."
Helen Lake - Management Accountant, Nottinghamshire
"Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. For me it is so refreshing (actually a complete change) to know that at last there is an agency that will look at what I have to offer, rather than the rigid filtering operated by others that I’m registered with."
Lawrence Ward - Accountant, Nottingham
"Cherry Professional offered me a very friendly and personal service. I was given excellent help with my interviews after they had arranged for me to meet the company I wanted to work for. I was made to feel like Cherry Professional’s most important customer."
Kate Higginbotham - Sales & Cash Assistant, Candidate
"Although Cherry Professional did not place me at this time I found the service they provided very helpful, I found that I was given good advice and feedback from the Consultant. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very helpful looking for specific roles I was looking for."
Samantha Murphy - Trainee Management Accountant, Derbyshire
"An excellent professional service that understood my precise requirements where other recruitment agencies have failed."
Catherine Brightman - Credit Risk Senior Analyst, Nottingham
"Cherry Professional are probably the most “professional” agency I have had the pleasure to deal with.

Would highly recommend their service!"
Julie Buda - Part Time Office Manager, Derbyshire
"Throughout the interview process the advice and support I was given was impeccable. I was given detailed information about the role and the company. All the members of Cherry Professional I corresponded with were very friendly and willing to provide guidance on any queries I had."
Mark Clayton - Engineering Finance Graduate, Staffordshire
"Ryan was so professional in his approach and his level of experience and advice was far superior to the other agencies I met. He took the time to understand my personality and what my ideal role would be if I could make my own, rather than just plodding through my CV.
As a result, I have now started a permanent job in my ideal role. Thank you for exceeding my expectations – even down to sending me a text message wishing me luck on my first day!
Thank you for treating me as an individual rather than another candidate looking for work."
Maryanne Orchard - Credit Controller, Nottingham
"Cherry Professional is hands down the best financial recruitment agency I have come across in my six years as a financial professional. I was overwhelmed by the level of understanding and knowledge the team have in the financial recruitment industry.
I experienced this first hand having met Simon for a first one to one meeting, he comprehensively informed me how I can get the most of my current experience and what areas I needed to focus on to maximise my growth. Within two days of the meeting I was provided with an interview and the following week I began work with Nord Anglia. The information provided and knowledge sharing from Cherry Professional was invaluable.
Without a doubt I will turn to Cherry Professional for all my financial recruitment needs in the future.
For a service with a focus on quality and swiftness turn to Cherry Professional."
Daman Sandhu - Group Management Accountant, Derby
"From the start the whole team at Cherry were helpful, friendly and honest. All these attributes allowed me to be open and explain the role I was after without fear of being sold a role I wasn’t interested in. Danielle in particular offered excellent support and advice going into my interview. Thank you so much!"
Christopher Sadler - Part Qualified Accountant, Derbyshire
"Truly excellent - an organised, friendly and professional service!
I was impressed by the high level of commitment and dedication shown by all the staff at Cherry, Ryan helped me to improve my CV and gave me 100% support. It was little over one month before he found me a job that was exactly what I was looking for - I have never felt so prepared for an interview!
I would like to thank you for your hard work and commitment and wish you all the best for the future. I have been and will continue to recommend you to all my friends.
A real end-to -end, personalised service - Thank you!"
Wendy Queen - Finance Assistant, Nottingham
"I would like to thank Ryan who has been very helpful and with his help I have now found employment."
Rita Daykin - Part Time Accounts Assistant, Nottingham

In my opinion Cherry Professional offer a first class service that is pro-active, friendly, and supportive. Cherry have got it all covered, from registration to placement. They take the time to understand you, provide information about roles, help with interview preparation and provide advice and feedback. Their positive attitude is a refreshing change from other agencies and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them. Simply Fantastic!"

Gillian Hutchinson - Payroll Administrator, Nottinghamshire
"The service I received from Cherry Professional was excellent. I felt that my requirements were listened to and carefully considered before putting me forward for my current role. I was supported every step of the way and was kept well informed of procedure. Ryan was friendly supportive and very approachable. In the past I have tried to avoid recruitment agencies, having felt like a pawn in a game to improve statistics. It is most definitely not the way Cherry Professional work and it is a relief to find any agency I trust."
Joanne Furlong - Accounts Assistant, Nottinghamshire
"I was extremely impressed with the service Cherry provided, they were friendly and very helpful. I was particularly impressed with the amount of effort they put into finding me a position, far more than any of the other agencies I was signed up to and so was not at all surprised it was them that finally placed me. In my view Cherry were more active than all the other three agencies I signed to put together."
Michael Hollingworth - Accounts Graduate, Nottinghamshire
"Simon Gray at Cherry Professional was recommended to me by a friend and I can safely say that it was a recommendation I was very grateful for. I met Simon for a quick coffee as I was passing through Nottingham in preparation for my relocation from Manchester, two days later he called me about a role, 2 weeks later with Simon's advice and support I secured the role. Cherry Professional are a proactive and experienced Recruitment firm who ensure that their candidates maximise their opportunity in securing the role they are looking for. I wouldn't hesitate to use them and recommend them moving forward."

Patricia Thomas - Finance Manager, Staffordshire
"I am very grateful to both Danielle and Ryan for their help and for securing me a role so quickly. They didn’t waste time getting me information about new roles and preparing me for interviews. They kept in contact even when I had a new job and so they were the first people I contacted when I was looking the second time around. They were very efficient and professional throughout the process, yet friendly and made it easy and stress free to find a new position. I would recommend Cherry Professional and their services to anyone I know."
Alucia Ponton - Accounts Payable, Nottingham

Deborah Thomas - Securities Administrator, Nottinghamshire
"I would like to thank you very much for all your help in getting me this job, I feel that a big weight has been lifted from me, I know these last three years has for me been very unsettling having been made redundant three times, I was beginning to lose my confidence with companies, but with your help I can now look forward to a new start."
Monica Montoya - Purchase Ledger Controller, Derbyshire
"From start to finish Cherry Professional provided an excellent service, and got to know me from the start. Their desire to find as much information about me as possible and the positions I was interested in helped them suggest relevant positions. Pre-interview advice and preparation from Ryan was excellent, which gave me additional confidence for the interview. I would recommend Ryan and Cherry Professional to anyone."
Andrew Brown - Graduate Scheme, Derbyshire
"Cherry Professional is the most proactive agency I registered with. They provided me with great advice on how to improve my CV layout, they prepared me for the style of interview I was likely to face and provided with me with lots of information to ensure I was fully prepared for anything I was asked in the interview. They contacted me on a regular basis to inform me of new roles and kept me informed throughout the application process. I would like to thank Ryan and Danielle for all the help they have provided and for securing me a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable experience at a company that I feel I will really enjoy working for."

Julie Foster - Part Time Book Keeper/Payroll, Nottinghamshire
"My situation was that after 20 years service my company went into Administration, so I found myself redundant at 59. Danielle, who I can’t praise enough, really looked after me and was determined to find me the position I was looking for which she did. I have nothing negative to say about Cherry Professional; as in the name they are the professionals for recruitment."
Margaret Warner - Part Time Purchase Ledger Controller, Nottingham
"After meeting Simon and the team, it was obvious to me that Cherry Professional were like no other agency. Dealing with seasoned professionals, who took the time to develop a relationship with both candidates and clients, I was confident Cherry Professional would be the agency to find me the right role within the right organisation. They did not fail to meet my expectations! I would not hesitate to recommend Cherry Professional. Thanks for a great job, both mine and yours!"

Sue Dring - HR Admin & Payroll, Nottinghamshire

I have now found a position that is perfect for me and will always thank Cherry for their hard work."
Keeley Edwards - Marketing Administrator, Nottingham
"As all job seekers are, I was very concerned over confidentiality and Simon took the time to explain the way Cherry Professional work and as I went through the process he demonstrated complete applicant confidentiality.
I was hugely impressed with Simon's knowledge of employers in the market and ability to match what I was looking for with prospective employers.
He introduced me to Nuffield Health and spent a lot of time preparing me for interviews which proved invaluable. I couldn't be happier with the Finance Manager role that Simon helped me to secure there.
Simon proved that even in this difficult economic environment, marrying the right applicant with successful employers is more than a possibility."
James Coultas - Finance Manager, Nottingham
"Danielle found me the perfect job. She listened to what I wanted out of the role and kept in constant contact with me and guided me through the interview process. I am really happy with the service provided and I would use Cherry Professional again if needed without hesitation."
Carly Hayes - Accounts Assistant, Nottinghamshire
"Cherry Professional made a huge improvement to my personal situation after spending 9 months unemployed after graduating in 2009. I held a part-time position in an area I didn’t want to continue work in, so Cherry Professional took my CV into the area it wouldn’t normally get into. If you have a good sense of what you want to achieve, a personal advisor will help you in the best way they can. With an exceptionally fast turn-around time from registration, interview to employment. I hold no reservation to spreading the word to friends that are still looking for a service at the level Cherry Professional provide.
Many thanks to everyone involved, the service you provide is priceless and I cannot express how grateful I am."
Jason Boot - Accounts Assistant, Nottinghamshire
"From my first meeting with Martin and Danielle I was impressed with how personal they made our relationship, being very friendly, genuinely interested in me and what I had to say and offering me some very sound advice which wasn’t always to their own gain. Basically I felt as though they cared and wanted the best thing for me, unlike many other recruiters I met around the same time who were clearly just following procedures with no real interest.
Cherry Professional have been very encouraging and ultimately found me the perfect job at a great company in a very short time-frame! Throughout the application process Danielle personally kept in regular contact with me (often out-of-hours) providing progress updates and supporting me through the various interviews. I cannot thank you enough for your help and I would not hesitate to recommend anybody who is looking for advice on their next career move to you."
Billy-Paul Underwood - Finance Analyst - Securitization, Nottinghamshire
"I would like to say a very big thank you to Danielle for all the help and support she has provided me with in improving my CV and guiding me when I went for interviews. The team at Cherry Professional are extremely professional, friendly and have without fail always supported me when I’ve needed their help. I will continue to recommend them to others and will definitely contact them in the future if I choose to search for other employment. Many, many thanks."
Mandeep Matharu - Entry Margin Assistant, Nottingham
"I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Cherry Professional - you found me a brilliant job and I can't thank you enough!

You are brilliant! Thank you."

Out of the 3 agencies I registered with you were certainly the best!"
Cheryl Turner - Credit Controller, Derbyshire
"I have known Danielle for more than 3 years and I am always impressed by her professionalism and a very individual approach to my requirements as a candidate.
I have been registered with another 5 agencies but it is Cherry Professional who has placed me in my current job. Their service went far beyond all other agencies. I got assistance at every stage of the process: from job specification analysis and a very deep understanding of my experience, qualification, personality and requirements, to the advice on which competencies to focus on at interview and feedback from the employer.
That rare and comprehensive approach brings Cherry Professional to a success even in a very difficult current economic environment. I honestly believe that I would still be unemployed if not for the determination and real care for their clients demonstrated by Danielle. I highly recommend Cherry Professional to any employer and jobseeker and they will be my first point of contact should I be looking for other employment."
Inna Morozova - Finance Assistant, Nottingham
"Danielle, there are not enough words to describe how much I appreciate your help on my CV and interview techniques. Last spring I had a conversation with you over the phone and you suggested to do extra hours to gain accounts work experience rather than going for temporary role, as it was a risky option. Without your help I would not be where I am now.
There is no doubt you are the best Consultant I have come across and you inspire me with your people skills and professionalism. Thank you again (and your team) for helping me on my job search. I wish you all the best."
Miwa Drury - Accounts Clerk, Nottingham
"Just a quick email to let you know that everything is going great, and to thank you for all of your help in finding me the right position and finding it so quickly. I am currently training at the moment and I am really starting to get into the role quite quickly.
I would like to thank everyone at Cherry Professional and wish you all the best for the future."
Liam Morrisey - Central Invoicing Administrator, Nottinghamshire
"Cherry Professional are without a doubt one of the best recruitment agencies I have used. Danielle is a complete professional and carefully listened to all my needs. Without her persistence and determination to get me to that crucial interview stage I firmly believe I would not be in the position I am today. I can honestly say that Cherry Professional are the first agency that I really believe cared about what I wanted and all communication was genuine and honest. I whole heartedly recommend them to any Employer or Job Seeker, and I can assure you they will be my first point of contact should I be seeking employment in the future."
Ryan Harkness - Commercial Analyst, Nottinghamshire
"Cherry Professional has been really supportive throughout my job search. They looked at my CV and provided valuable advice of how to demonstrate my skills and strengths.
The team at Cherry Professional really listened to my career goals, understood my aspirations and adopted a dynamic and energetic approach to securing me the ideal role.
I put this down to their 25 years experience in the market place and thank them for all of their hard work.
I know the team at Cherry Professional as friends now due to the amount of time they invested in me to help me prepare for interview. Their service went above and beyond other agencies.
I start my new role on 4 January 2010 as a Business Analyst and am really looking forward to it.
I would not hesitate in recommending Cherry Professional to anyone looking for their next career move."
Dianne Torr - Business Analyst, Staffordshire
"I registered with 10 other agencies in Nottingham when I began my job search. I received the best service and support from the team at Cherry Professional.
They were so professional in their approach and their level of experience and advice was far above their competitors. Most importantly they took the time to understand my personality and career aspirations, rather than just looking at my CV. I feel very comfortable and confident knowing that the right company has been found for me."
Hanzey Gultekin - Assistant Accountant, Nottingham
"I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Danielle and everyone at Cherry Professional for your professionalism and dedication in helping me obtain a permanent position with The Nottingham. This role is ideal for me at this period in my career and during the current job market climate without advice and support from Cherry Professional I’m sure I would have found it difficult. Cherry Professional had a fantastic insight into how the employer works and exactly what kind of candidate they were looking for.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Cherry Professional to any professional looking to further their career."
Tracy Brown - PA to the Retail Director, Nottingham
"Having worked previously with Martin as both a client and candidate, I expected and received an excellent service from Cherry. In obtaining my current role Cherry were of course professional but also provide the personal service that is required from both sides of the recruitment table. I have no hesitation in recommending them."
Dan Black ACMA - Financial Controller, Derby
"It was refreshing to find an agency that had a good and close working relationship with the client which benefits all parties concerned, the agency, the candidate and the client.
As a candidate I have regular contact with Cherry Professional and find the consultants always available to discuss any issues or problems that I may have."
Marius Kaye - Interim Financial Controller, Nottingham
"I felt that I received an excellent service from Cherry Professional throughout my contact with them. Simon provided strong advice to me on interview technique and was open and honest throughout which sets him apart from several other consultants I have worked with recently. The icing on the cake was being successful in obtaining a new role which, one month in, I am very much enjoying. Should I decide to enter the recruitment market again, I will certainly be using Cherry Professional."
Ben Jeays ACA - Financial Reporting Analyst, Nottingham
"I would like to thank Cherry Professional for their big effort in finding me a suitable position.
They always kept me well informed and I had regular contact with them. They are professionals in every way. They found me not just a job but a job I really like and enjoy in a very short period of time. It is a job I have always wanted to do. I have been delighted with their service.
Cherry Professional does their best to find out what sort of position you are looking for and they are dedicated to match the right job to the right candidate. They are not just matching jobs to candidates but they do everything to keep both sides happy and satisfied.
I shall definitely not hesitate to recommend Cherry Professional to anyone seeking employment as their professionalism, efficiency and ability to understand a person’s needs are unique."
Anna Sobilo - Project Coordinator, Leicestershire
"I would like to thank you for all your help throughout my employment search,
I would certainly recommend your recruitment agency as you have been reliable, friendly and I was kept up-to-date on employment matters. I would certainly use your recruitment agency again if I look for new employment in the future."
Emma Prosser - Credit Controller, Nottingham
"Thank you very much for all the effort you and Cherry Professional made on my behalf to secure a permanent position.
The regular contact you kept with me was a great comfort and you really kept me up to speed with the job market and the CV you did for me was excellent.
Even though I ultimately found a position by other means, it was not for lack of trying on your part, I found your company to be the TOP recruitment agency I have ever dealt with.
I would not hesitate to RECOMMEND you and Cherry Professional to anyone looking for a position and if in my new role I ever need to recruit I would instantly call you.
Once again Danielle thank you very much for all the effort and hard work you put in for me."
Eileen Goodman - Accounts Office Manager, Derby
"Thank you for your continued support in trying to help me find a new position.
There are lots of jobs on the internet and when you send your CV, it is mainly agencies advertising these jobs, and you have to sign with them to have a look in at the job. The point being out of quite a few agencies over the past few years, you are by far the most professional, positive person I have dealt with, plus you maintain contact whereas no other agency has done after first contact. Once again thank you."
Belinda Constantine - Accounts Clerk, Derbyshire
"I would like to thank Simon and Danielle at Cherry Professional for all their effort in securing me with my new role. I am extremely grateful for the service they both provided me through a difficult patch in my career. Their contact was excellent and they kept me in the loop the whole way. Their knowledge and professional attitudes gave me confidence and the final result was securing a job that met all my requirements and more importantly a role that I thoroughly enjoy. I cannot recommend Cherry Professional highly enough. I hope they continue to receive the recognition they deserve. Thanks again. "
Andy Richards - Interim Management Accountant, Nottinghamshire
"Martin placed me in my current position three years ago when he headed up the recruitment of qualified staff at a Nottingham based agency. His service was extremely professional and well organised and he provided lots of information, support, and most of all, contact; everything you need when going through the recruitment process. "
Ken Pearson - Group Financial Controller, Nottingham
"I had an initial meeting with Simon and Martin of Cherry Professional in May. I felt that they were sympathetic to my situation and were interested in meeting my requirements as well as those of any prospective employer. I was placed in a temporary role with an organisation within 2 weeks and this business is a good fit for me personally. I have now been offered a longer term contract with the organisation.
In these uncertain times I feel that I have received an excellent service from Cherry Professional."
Gary Chamberlain ACMA - Financial Controller, Leicestershire
"Of all the recruitment agencies I have dealt with Cherry Professional have been by far the best - the most pro-active, the best at communicating and keeping in touch, as well as finding the best opportunities for me. I will certainly recommend you to others and when I next come to change roles you will be the first company I contact. "
Gavin Ashton ACCA - Commercial Accountant, Nottingham
"After being made redundant from a long term position, Christmas was looking very bleak indeed. With a struggling economy and employment opportunities few and far between I feared the worst. Then I met Danielle at Cherry Professional. Within 48 hours I had interviewed, been offered and accepted a dream position with a European cup winning football club! Thank you Cherry Professional and thank you Danielle."
Danny Moynes - Management Accountant, Derbyshire
"I just wanted to thank you for investing some time in meeting me yesterday. Not a lot of other agencies seem to show the same level of interest and dedication to finding their clients the right people for the right job. I guess that is one the 'new directions' that Cherry Professional is taking to differentiate itself from their competitors."
