Dee and Olivia paid close attention to every detail during the hiring process. They invested the time to learn about me, my qualifications, my personality, and the kind of position I was looking for.

I am excited to begin my new role after they nominated me for one that was exactly what I was seeking for and completely right for me - Sarah, Nottingham Candidate

I would definitely recommend joining Cherry Professional. Claire was very quick getting in touch after I applied. She talked to me fully about the job role and how great the firm was to work for.

Nicola approached me by phone, she had found a position that she knew would suit me down to the ground! I had been a previous candidate of hers, having gone through redundancy and through no fault of my own, was seeking a new employment opportunity.  She pushed for an interview, explaining my then current working situation (temporary contract), in which she was successful. This resulted in my new employment. I know that this is the job of a recruiter, however, throughout the whole process, Nicola was there for me, answering my questions, encouraging me every step of the way. I felt like I was given the personal touch, could not ask for a better service - thank you - Sue, Nottingham Candidate

I couldn't be more thrilled with the experience I had with Dee- Anne at Cherry Professional. From the moment I engaged with Dee, I felt supported and valued as a candidate.

I would therefore be delighted to recommend Cherry Professional - Marie, Nottingham Candidate

After an illness, I knew I needed to change the industry I had been in all my working life but had no idea what I that would be. I was worried and had lost my confidence but wanted to get back into work.
I had a chat with Claire and put my cards on the table...together we decided on short placements, part-time to begin with.
I was with Cherry for just over a year, I found everyone at CP a dream to work with, they care for you and about you, almost like family. In the placements they suggested for me, I got my confidence back and now have a contract with a company they found for me .
Cherry professionals are just that....professionals. I had a great experience working with them and if needed would not hesitate to ask them for help again - Anita, Derby Candidate
