Here is what our Clients say about us

Great and professional service. Cherry Professional took the time to talk to us about the vacancy, understand the type of person we were looking for, and learn about our company culture. They sent over CVs that were thoroughly vetted and matched the criteria we were looking for. Having worked with several recruitment agencies in the past, I would highly recommend Cherry Professional! Suzanne - Nottingham Client

Olivia was really supportive and found us some great candidates. The candidates were all really well matched to our role and came well prepared to the interviews. The recruitment process from start to finish was seamless and resulted in us finding the right person for our team.
Olivia - Thanks for all your support - Irena, Leicester Client

Nicola was an absolute pleasure to work with, professional, understanding and thorough. She went above and beyond trying to find the right fit for the role and we have found an absolute star in the making to fill the position! We have already spoken with regards to another position we have to fill - Katy, Nottingham Client

I am very grateful that my CV was picked up from an application I made through Cherry and that I was called for an initial interview to get to know me after a 7 year gap in employment due to being a stay at home mom. I was very well looked after and the position that was found suited my needs and experience. Thank you very much - Huda, Nottingham Candidate

It was a pleasure to work with Dee. She really got under the skin of our recruitment requirements and found some exceptional candidates in a very tight timescale - Karen, Nottingham Client

Really happy with the service from Cherry Professional - Jo James was a star - she delivered on point everything that we asked for. It makes the recruitment process so easy when working with someone that goes the extra mile to ensure we get what we need - absolute pleasure to work with Jo - Sue, Derby Client

Highly professional and personable service. Thank you for your support - Sarah, Leicester Client

Kate was a pleasure to deal with, open and honest a very rare thing in my previous experiences with many agencies who are far from professional - Trevor, Nottingham Candidate
We tried ourselves to recruit a fixed term HR Business Partner and failed, but Jo came to the rescue and yet again pulled it out of the bag in finding us a great candidate. Jo's support and challenge is appreciated and she showed us that thinking a little differently is no bad thing and in fact what we think we might need and want isn't necessarily always the case. Thanks Jo 🙂 - Debbie, Derby Client
Jo was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. She provided great support throughout the recruitment process and I would recommend her to other candidates - Amanda, Leicester Candidate
The consultant that I was communicating with (Leah Dilks) was very bubbly, friendly and informative about the role that I enquired about. She was very efficient with seeing that everything in terms of the role was complete and done in a timely manner. I would recommend Cherry Professional to anyone, especially if the consultant service is as good or equal to Leah's. Thank you again! - Chantelle, Derby Candidate
Both Kate and Nikki listened and understood my personal situation and made things happen in a very short space of time. More importantly, they kept me updated on progress and I felt valued - Lili, Nottingham Candidate
I was very happy with the service given. They were swift and efficient from the start of the process right through to the end. Would thoroughly recommend- Susan, Nottingham Candidate
Found myself in an unfortunate situation of being made redundant. Have not used agencies before and was nervous in doing so. Nikki was amazing gave me all the information I required, accurately told me how it works and was extremely swift in placing me into a position I was more suited to than the one I had applied for. Many thanks for everything - Carla, Nottingham Candidate
Chloe is very kind and polite, friendly and easy to talk to, provides the information you need and even more if you ask her.  I would definitely get in touch with her again, therefor couldn't recommend her enough  - Gabriella, Nottingham Candidate
What an amazing company. The recruiter Nicola excelled herself, she was so helpful, nothing too much trouble; a credit to the company - Julie, Nottingham Candidate
Dee was enthusiastic, professional, and went out of her way to make sure that I was prepped and ready for my interview. She took great care to make sure that the job was a good fit for me, just as much as me being a good fit for the job. Following on from the interview she got me feedback very quickly to wrap up a great recruitment experience - Sam, Nottingham Candidate
Applied for a role I had seen and the support from all the workers was amazing, I struggled with finding a role but as soon as I had the support from Cherry it was a relief. Thank you to all who I have spoken to - Tia, Nottingham Candidate
Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient staff. Everything explained clearly and lots of supporting advice. One of the best agencies I have used in the last 25 years. Will definitely recommend to others - Jenny, Nottingham Candidate

Nicola Freeman has always been professional and supportive of my circumstances and helped me secure several roles in the last few years. I have always found working with Cherry Professional a pleasure and of a high standard. Kate Lavery also was helping me with my search and she was very professional and supportive too. Thank you Nicola and Kate - Zoe, Nottingham Candidate

Cherry always provide decent candidates to consider and have a very good vetting system to make sure we're seeing people with the best attributes for our needs. The vast majority of our administration team were sourced via Cherry Professional, and I'm very happy with all of them! - Pat, Derby Client
Working with Cherry Professional is an absolute pleasure! They hit the mark time and again for us, they know our staff, our organisation, and our whole ethos. Professional and friendly staff, they are a critical business partner for us
- Julie, Nottingham Client
Dan was great through our whole process, he worked closely with myself and was always on hand when we needed him. He took time to get to know our business and the requirements for the position. Thanks Dan!

Hope, Nottingham Client

“Cherry  understood our needs and found a suitable candidate, with great references, almost immediately. We were able to get help in the team within just a couple of days and have been very impressed with the candidate so far. Would recommend them to anyone and will use them again for any temp staffing needs.”

– Beth, Nottingham Client

“Tara was a joy to work with. Very pleasant, easy going and fun personality. Tara regularly supplied updates of the candidates along with feedback from their interviews. Tara was very helpful in sourcing the right candidate for our vacancy. Cherry Professional have supplied both temporary and full time staff, all meeting high standards.“

– Desmond, Leicester Client



“Katie, our temp. was excellent. A hard worker, who adapted to the temporary position with ease.”

– Karen, Nottingham Client

“Tara remained professional and assertive to fill this challenging role. Her drive and ambition to assist Exeid in recruiting for the 'right' team member, showed through her passion and drive. She listened to what Exeid needed and used her resources to secure a role for us.”

– Nottingham Client

“Really pleased with the service provided by Cherry, they provided some excellent candidates who were well briefed and with a great experience. He responded really quickly to any queries and kept me up to date with the latest developments. Great Service as always from Cherry - many thanks!”

– Amy, Nottingham Client

“The request was put through to the agency today and a candidate was allocated the position within hours. Very good service. With the experience that I have received today I don't feel that there was anything that could be improved.”

– Susan, Nottingham Client

“The recruiter took the time to understand our organisation and the brief and as a consequence only submitted candidates that fitted the brief. Whilst this may sound like a very basic expectation, sadly this isn't my experience of working with other recruitment agencies who tend to focus on quantity as opposed to quality and then become very upset and pushy when their candidates are not shortlisted. Dan Thornton understood the urgency with this role and dedicated his time and efforts to diligently source candidates and by working in partnership, we were able to fill the vacancy in record time.”

Rabinder, Leicester Client

“Every contact I've had with Cherry Professional so far have been thorough, friendly and approachable. They keep me up to date on candidate searches and are efficient in organising initial conversations with candidates prior to formal interviews. They have also been really patient particularly when I am so busy and really care about finding us the best candidate.”

– Mal, Nottingham Client
