Marie - Candidate - Derby
"Kerry has been great, always keeping me updated with immediate responses. Was getting a slow response to my CV in general but straight away Kerry went through it and explained how things are currently (not sure if there was too much info etc) and reassured me, felt very positive after her "pep" talk. Although I am currently starting a temp role, I feel assured that Kerry will do her best and find me my new permanent job that suits my requirements and skill set. Well done Kerry, Gold Star. I have been in contact with quite afew recruiters and have had a poor response and in some cases none! Cherry definitely stands out for me"
"Laura Harris was a great help from start to finish! Brilliant advice pre/post interview and kept me updated throughout the full process. I would definitely recommend Cherry Professional to anyone looking for that next career move!"
"I am very impressed with the service I received at Cherry. Within two weeks of posting my CV, I'd had an interview and been offered a job. The regular contact from Nicola helped me feel supported as I went through the process."
"Charlotte at Cherry was a life saver when a candidate we had appointed to a role decided not to join us at the last minute. Charlotte introduced us to someone who is just what we need and I'm looking forward to welcoming her to the team."
"Having been passed to Kieran and Jennifer by Gareth, they provided an excellent service that got me from candidate to offer in three weeks over the tricky Christmas period, making sure I always had someone working on things. I had 5 great candidates to look at and the two we interviewed were a credit to Cherry. Thank you for your hard work on this."
"Cherry Professional have not lowered their standards to recruit suitable candidates for the roles they provide and have moved towards COVID-19 regulations gracefully using digital conferencing tools to interview and assist their clients and prospective employees. "
"From beginning to end, from temp to perm. I've found the perfect job! I have to say that Cherry Professional are the best agency in Nottingham! They found me a temp to perm position and 3 months later I'm so happy in my new role. They are friendly, a pleasure to deal with and really know what candidates need. Highly recommended! I dealt with Kate Lavery in Nottingham and I really want her to be thanked for helping me and being the perfect consultant!
"Jen pursued me for a role which I'd not responded to her about when she'd emailed the details to me a few days earlier. I'd been unsure about the role when I first saw the email, but when Jen spoke to me about it, I became more interested and agreed (reservedly) for my cv to be put forward. Thanks to Jen I had a very constructive introductory meeting which has now led to me being offered the role. Somehow, Jen had matched me to the role, so thanks to Jen for her match-making and perseverance. Thanks too, for all her support along the way."
"Danielle was amazing. Kept in contact with me at every stage, offering advice and tips when needed, as well as encouragement and support leading up to every interview and conversation. Unlike other recruiters I have dealt with where I felt like I was just another number, I knew exactly what was happening all the time and that this was about finding the right fit for me rather than just finding any job that was available. "
"Cherry Professional are my 'go to' agency as an individual seeking employment and an HR Manager looking to recruit. From a candidate's point of view they always have access to roles which are exciting and they always match you with jobs that are a perfect fit. I have found my last two roles via Cherry and I simply wouldn't have found these great jobs without their support. They really know their candidates and their help in preparing for interviews is excellent. As a recruiting client, Cherry take the time to really understand the businesses they are working with. They take time to meet each applicant and ensure that they are the perfect fit for the role and organisation before even considering submitting a CV. They won't bombard you with candidates but the ones you get will be top quality. I wish all agencies were as professional as Cherry."
"I dealt with a few of the consultants and all of them were great. The emails with the job overviews were great, much better than searching the website/ LinkedIn. All of the jobs emailed to me were of the right nature, I wasn’t bombarded with roles I wasn’t interested in. The team kept me briefed on progress etc. By far the best recruitment team I’ve worked with. Thank you very much"
"Service was fab to be honest, Kate send me lots of information plus she arranged a call with another colleague to chat over everything which was super useful. Kate kept me up to date at all times with what was happening at each stage."
"Kerry has been an outstanding consultant. She has found me two jobs in the last 12 months , her sound advice , honesty and good humour has been much appreciated and hand on heart Cherry Professional would be the first company I would call if I waslooking for another role in the future."
"Tara and Cherry Professional as a whole were very warm and supportive in the interview process, she made me feel confident going into the interview and assured me that she was available if I had any questions/ queries. Best recruitment service that I have received and I am very grateful."
"RVL haven't worked with Cherry Professional before but I found the team and especially Danielle very pragmatic, approachable and professional. Danielle kept to all the timescales agreed and kept me fully informed throughout the process. "
"I am over the moon to have been offered the job which I applied for, despite not looking for the job at all. I worked briefly with Kieran back in December 2019 and he still remembered my situation and got in touch as he believed the role was a great fit for me, which I believe it will be. At the start of the process I was on Holiday, Kieran knew this and took the responsibility of amending my CV and tried to bother me as little as possible in the process, and he wasn't a bother one bit. The advice provided before each telephone/skype/face to face interview proved invaluable and gave me the confidence to attack the application process. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kieran and would recommend his services to anyone. "
"From start to finish, I cannot fault Cherry Professional. Ruby is a fantastic Candidate Supervisor and is never too busy to talk. The ability of the team to secure employment very quickly, even in these strange times of lock-down, non-contact discussions and virtual interview processes; nothing was too much for the team at Cherry to sort. I was made redundant from one job and within two weeks was able to secure a role for what was going to be a couple of weeks to help out. This ended up being a 15 weeks temporary role that has culminated in being offered a permanent role. My thanks to all at Cherry, especially Ruby."
"Georgia was in touch with me from start to end. Even taking the time out in the evening (7pm) to do a face to face interview prior to the actual interview with selected company. Communication was excellent, professional and friendly. Would highly recommend. Georgia is a credit to your company."
"Kieran was brilliant as a recruitment consultant and found a job that matched what I was looking for perfectly. He gave fantastic advice at every stage, from CV writing and interview prep to keeping me up to date with all of the latest news relating to the company I was applying for. I would highly recommend Kieran to anyone looking for a new job in the financial sector."
"I was recommended Cherry Professional by my cousin who received an excellent service securing a role she desired. I was more than happy with Kate who was supportive, always kept in updated about the role and things to prepare for my interview which resulted me securing that role."
"Cherry Professional lived up to their name and were totally Professional. I found the consultant Laura Harris very friendly and easy to get on with and she made the work transition very easy. I recommend anyone to use their services. I have worked with a lot of agencies in the past who have not excelled as much as Cherry Professional, especially getting a job in lock down. Well done Laura for your help.! "
"From the beginning, I was able to receive tips to make my CV look better and was able to successfully secure an interview within a few days. The tips and information for my interview were amazing, enabling me to go into the interview with confidence. The whole process from the initial call with Kieran to securing a job took less than a week that allowed me to enjoy Christmas in peace. Cherry Professional seems to have a strong relationship with the companies and knows the company well. I definitely recommend Cherry Professional when looking for jobs"
"I've known Cathal for a few years. We've met face to face and he's spoken to Finance Directors I've worked for so knows what I can and cannot do. This means he only contacts me with suitable roles which wastes neither my time, Cherry's nor the client's which isbest for all parties. He's also very personable and easy to talk to!"
"Danielle provided a first class service and gave me all the information required for the role. Danielle was open and transparent and was able to give me honest feedback. I received all the support that I needed as well as guidance on my job search. Overall extremely satisfied with the support that I have received and I would most definitely use Danielle again for my future job search and in a professional capacity. "
"Kieran Gill, Cathal Scanlon, Jennifer Fitzgerald and others have really been helpful over the last couple of years and most recently in helping me find my next step in my career and I would like to thank them all especially Kieran putting up with me all this time! "
"I would highly recommend Cherry Professional. They make the experience of looking for a new job that bit easier and take a lot of the pressure off you. They’re quick to respond to you, friendly and relatable."
"Very responsive, answered any questions I had very quickly. Concluded the placement at pace. Friendly and easy to discuss any concerns. Would highly recommend after working with other agencies who didn’t offer the same level of Service"
"Actually relationship led, got to know me as a candidate and what my career goals and targets were, to then provide me with relevant roles and not just anything and everything! Felt fully supported and communicated with throughout and the in depth knowledge of the roles that I was being talked about was brilliant. Having used and spoken with many different finance recruitment companies in the East Midlands, Cherry is among the best."
"I was very pleased with how quick everything happened. Spoke with Ruby for less than a week and she got me a great role that I'm super excited for, usually with my experience from other agencies it can be a very long drawn out process that can take months. she was very helpful and gave me great advice regarding the interview and found a perfect role for me."
"Kerry was brilliant, she was so enthusiastic and really took on board what would be the right fit for me. She stayed in touch constantly and kept me up to date with positions and changes relating to my application. She's really bubbly and is very good at her job! "
"Georgia was constantly keeping me updated with the progress of my application and answered any questions I had even after working hours. After being made redundant from a competitor, it’s so nice and refreshing that I have been so well looked after by another agency. Thanks Georgia 😁😁"
No improvement needed, absolutely amazing support and I can only recommend your agency! Very helpful and profession service, dream job found within 2-3 weeks. I can only say thanks to Georgia Jonson who was looking after me and found for me a job within 2 days! Georgia was very professional, helpful, enthusiastic and friendly! Big thank you Georgia!
"Georgia is absolutely fantastic. She makes the job search so easy and you feel she is behind you every step of the way. She always keeps you updated and always responds quickly when you need to talk to her. Amazing in finding me my new role. Cherry Professional don't make you feel like a number."
"Without any hesitation I would say that Cherry Professional is the best recruitment agency in Derby as they are extremely professional, reliable, honest and caring group of people. I am truly grateful to Kelly for all her hard work and fantastic communication throughout the process and especially grateful for her help to reschedule my interview when I was not available to attend one. From the very first day Kelly has been doing everything to help me find the perfect role and she has put all her efforts to make this happen, she kept me up to date and was always available to answer any question. Cannot thank Kelly enough for all her hard work and extremely professional approach. I would definitely recommend using Cherry Professional as they are honest and professional."
"Claire from Cherry helped me find my dream job and now I’m working for a company that I absolutely love and can’t wait to get stuck in. I wouldn’t have been able to find this job without Claire’s help, I was starting to lose hope and a morning phone call from Cherry turned it all around. From beginning to end, Claire truly cared about the whole process, she was only a phone call away when I needed a bit of advice or to calm my nerves. I am so appreciative, thank you so much!"
"Fantastic service provided by Cherry Professional. Met with the agency on Thursday and had a permanent job offer by Tuesday! I would not hesitate to recommend this recruitment agency, Nicola Freeman in particular was so helpful, going out of her way to find the perfect role with the right company to meet all of my requirements. Thank you Nicola and thank you Cherry Professional!"
"Gareth feels like a mate rather than a recruiter. He's always there to give advice, to listen and basically to help. I trust him completely and know when he calls me the role will be one I will be interested in as he has taken the time to understand what I want. It sounds simple and should be, but not many recruiters do it - that's what sets Cherry apart from other agencies."
"Georgia was a huge help in finding us a replacement quickly. The position we had advertised was not an easy recruit and a very business specific role and so was great that Georgia helped find a suitable candidate. Georgia was a new contact to us and made every effort to understand us as a business, the culture and type of candidates that would instantly fit it."
"Kerry has helped our company immeasurably in the last few weeks. She has taken the time to listen to our needs, discuss appropriate candidates and work on placements coming into a difficult environment. The dialogue between Kerry and me has been professional, friendly and frank, which is exactly what I could have wished for from a recruitment consultant. She has been able to deliver on her promises often at very short notice, which is commendable. I'm sure we will be utilising your company again in the near future and do not hesitate to recommend Kerry."
"Couldn't be more impressed with the entire recruitment process with Cherry. I dealt with Robert Clarke who is truly exceptional, I was listened to fully and supported through every step of the process and as a result I feel that I can say with confidence I have made the right choice. I would highly recommend them to anyone"
"By far the most professional and personal recruitment agency I have ever dealt with (from both client and candidate side). Everything is focused and tailored to your needs rather than a blanket approach taken by most agencies."
"I have used Cherry for the last 5 years for both personal and employee recruitment purposes. I have always been very impressed with the candidates that they have selected for me, the roles that I have been put forward for and the professional, dedicated and friendly staff that work there. I have had the pleasure of dealing with Rob and Gareth for a number of years and I could not be happier with the working relationship that we have developed. They took the time to understand my needs for my new role and they couldn’t have found me a more perfect role."
"My experience with Cherry Professional has been truly exceptional. Ross Hillman has been an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the process and his support and dedication to securing the perfect outcome for his candidates and employers is so apparent. He was extremely receptive and really sought to understand both what I was looking for in a new role but also me as an individual - so much so, that I was offered and accepted the only job I ultimately interviewed for in the very same day! I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone who may be looking for their next career move."
"I found Claire to be professional, a great communicator and passionate about her job. I felt valued and well informed about the whole process, it is the best experience I have had with recruitment agency"
"I registered with Cherry Professional and 5 days later I was back in work. Looking forward to starting my new role. Thanks to Kate who has kept me up to date and informed. I will not hesitate to recommend you. Head and shoulders above other agencies in my experience."
"Cherry Professional are the best head and shoulders above the rest in the recruitment industry! Kerry has known me for 2yrs plus and I feel she has the best professional approach with my skills/experience at heart when she deems me suitable for a role she has available or just simply calls to find out how I am for work. Whenever I have wanted to find my next role Kerry is my No.1 go to all the time. Her professionalism is outstanding, obviously having applied for roles with other agencies other than Cherry Professional the other agencies lack candidate service skills and don’t deliver. All other agencies should learn from this review and smarten up!!"
"Thanks for all your help Ben. We formed a very good relationship and after looking through several opportunities we found one that was perfect for me! I will definitely contact Ben when looking for my next role."
"Extremely helpful and professional. Ross is extremely professional, gave me advice on the interview process. Ruby was extremely professional and I would recommend Cherry Professional to all my friends and family."
"I had been in my previous position for 22 years so very out of the job market, I met with both Kerry and Georgia and they boosted my confidence. Georgia checked in with me both before and after my interviews and I can’t thank her and Cherry Professionals enough – I have now secured a fantastic new position."
"Georgia was fabulous through the whole process, extremely supportive during and after interview stage and even after I was offered the role. She gave enough information for me to feel confident during the interview and made sure all my queries were answered at all times. It was nice to have the support throughout and not just prior to interview stage, really appreciate the efforts and will highly recommend her as a representative to my friends and family in the future."
"From my first initial meeting with Nicola I was put very much at ease, as interviews are not my strong point. I then met with and worked with Claire, who was fantastic, she let me know that when I registered in July, that July and August would be very slow months to find work and that when September arrived there would be lots of offers flooding in, and sure enough Claire was correct as not only did I secure an interview through Claire, but I also managed to land the job as well. So all in all I cannot thank Claire and the team at Cherry Professional enough for all their hard work and dedication in helping me secure a full time, permanent position. I would highly recommend Claire, Nicola and the rest of the team at Cherry Professional. Thank you all so much."
"Cherry Professional is an extremely professional organisation with a team of great people who are genuinely dedicated and committed to understanding the needs of their clients. Then, having the expertise to find and match the right person, with the necessary skills and experience, to support the client really well. I have been consistently impressed by everyone that Cherry Professional has provided and would highly recommend their service. Quality people, every time!"
"Nicola contacted me with a job that suited my abilities. I found her helpful, informative and professional and was on call if I needed any additional help. She put my mind at rest and helped me with any further questions I had. I got the job! Thank you for all your help and support Nicola Freeman!"
"The service Cherry provide is the best by any agency by far. They really make you feel like an individual by really trying to find you the role that suits you - it isn’t a blanket email of any job kind of service. Ben Love is great at his job. He understands what you want & really tries to find that role for you. Cherry have helped to find me 2 great jobs & I have recommended them to many people."
"From submitting my CV for a role to being made an offer of employment took 4 working days, and that was only because I was unavailable for interview for the first 2 days. Ross, my consultant, was straight on the phone to have a chat about the role I applied for, as well as other potential positions and companies I might be interested in.
He had obviously worked closely with the person advertising the position I had applied for and gave me a lot of background information before interview which put me at ease. Communication was excellent and included a video chat with him as we did not have time to meet up in person, which is their preferred option. If I am ever looking for another job Cherry Professional will be my first call."
"Cherry Professional is the best recruitment agency. Kieran is very professional, reliable, honest and supportive. He helped me find the perfect job. I can honestly say I couldn’t find it without his help. I am very grateful for all his time and effort."
"Tom excelled. We had a few conversations at the start to ensure we both knew what the requirements were. Once we got over these discussions I am delighted with Tom's approach and was even willing to challenge my rationale, which he was right to do. The result is that we have the right person in our organisation - thanks to Tom and Cherry Professional."
"Having been both a candidate and a client of Georgia Johnson at Cherry Professional I have been very impressed with her and the service level I have received. Both the candidate experience and the client experience is second to none. Georgia listens to what we need as a business and she works fast and always sends me quality candidates.
Georgia knows what we / I like now and I trust her to find me the candidates right for the role the first time without me having to even reach out to other agencies!!
Georgia's strength is her communication and honesty - She keeps me up to date with how she is getting on and that is key for me as I haven't got time to be chasing people. I love how she gets excited about candidates too - her energy rubs off on me and I equally get excited about meeting her candidates.
I highly recommend Georgia and Cherry Professional as both a candidate and a client!!"
"The best and smoothest recruitment process I have been through. friendly, approachable and provided with advice and tips at every stage. I was confident they would find the role for me from the get go. Could not be more grateful."
"Very happy with the service and help provided by Cherry. In less than a week of applying for a job I was offered a position. I have never used a recruitment agency before and was very impressed with the quality and professional service/ help provided by the staff. Kerry in particular was really helpful and answered any queries I had in detail. Would definitely recommend Cherry Professional to others!!"
"Great communication with lots of great resources and advice for those looking for office based work. I was given many opportunities and the information provided for each of them was invaluably helpful."
"I am very grateful that Cherry Professional was recommended to me as a recruitment agent. After not having had an interview for several years getting back into work seemed a very daunting task, but after being helped and encouraged by Nicola at Cherry I have been able to find and been offered a great job opportunity that works around my busy family life"
"If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself out of work and are struggling to find a role via the usual means, then I can highly recommended Cherry professional. One consultant in particular being Kerry Metcalf.
I could sit here and write a dickins style book with my experience of Kerry, but I’m sure I would run out of superlatives. Trust me when I say, that Kerry is a true “Recruitment Consultant” and went to every effort to assist me in finding my next role with minimal effort of my behalf.
In the world of recruitment, which is heavily saturated, Cherry and Kerry in my experience are head and shoulders above the majority of other providers, and would not hesitate in using them again. Simply, they were fantastic and will look forward to keeping my professional rapport with them throughout my career. Massive thanks Kerry, you’re a star!"
"Honestly the quickest process for a new job that I've ever gone through. Start to end was less than a month. The professionalism was fantastic, Georgia you're an attribute to Cherry. Definitely recommending you to friends and family in the future."
"It has been a while since I have contacted a Recruitment company! Totally new experience with Cherry, I found them very supportive and put me at my ease. Kerry was a pleasure and knew I was in good hands!"
"Everything was turned around extremely quickly, both candidates provided were of a great standard and Georgia was easy to contact and communicate with. Very impressed with Cherry, wouldn't normally consider for scheduling vacancies (usually finance) but have quickly proved versatility in another area - well done."
"Kerry has always been my first port of call when I've finished work and really need to get into another role. She doesn't disappoint, is thorough in what she does and I have had the pleasure in doing temporary assignments three times now over the past couple of years. Being a recruitment resourcer myself, Kerry does as I do.... cares for the candidate from start to finish, crosses all the t's and dots every i."
"This is the 2nd position that I got via Cherry and both times the service provided has been exceptional. Nicola was friendly and very professional and went out of her way to accommodate my needs.
I also used Cherry before when I needed staff myself and again I was extremely happy with the service provided."
"When looking for a job I didn't actually have any intention of going through a recruitment agency, but I came across the perfect position advertised by Cherry. I was contacted the following day after applying, and Georgia who has handled my application from start to end was extremely helpful and kept me updated throughout the process, from interview to job offer. I am so happy that I got the position, and so grateful to Georgia for her help throughout this."
"After being in the same job for 22 years it was daunting being unemployed. After 3 weeks off work I visited Cherry Recruitment and met with Kate Lavery who was very helpful, kind and gained me an interview where I worked from Sept to early January."
"Ross has been supportive, professional and informative from the moment we made contact. He guided me through the pre interview process and was on hand to discuss any concerns I had in his own time during the evening. I would highly recommends cherry, it is the best recruitment experience I have ever encountered"
"It is the best agency I have ever have contact with! Especially I would like to express my gratitude for Kerry Metcalf, who is a professional knowing how to communicate with people. I think this agency should be an example to many others which don't really have a good reputation!"
"I found Cherry Professional and in particular Georgia Johnson to be professional, informative and accessible, taking the time to get to know my needs and wants from a role and corresponding with me with appropriate roles, a refreshing change from other recruiters I have worked with in the past. During my years working in the NHS I was governed to use recruiters on our "preferred list" an experience unfortunately was nothing like the dealings I have had with Cherry, making the task of getting someone for a specific role even more difficult and time wasting. Thank you Georgia, keep up the good work, you really are so much better than many of your competitors."
"Ross was excellent from day one, he kept me informed throughout the recruitment process and put me at ease before my interviews. He is a true credit to your company and a very happy positive person that makes you believe in yourself."
"Having registered & worked with probably 5+ agencies I can firmly say that Cherry Professional are by far the BEST agency I have worked with in particular:-
Claire Gregory (permanent) & Kate Lavery (temporary)
Very helpful & friendly
I felt that Cherry really understood what role I wanted & they only discussed these roles with me & didn't waste my time speaking about roles that weren't suitable for me, or what I wanted"
"The whole process was really quick from start to finish and Kerry was very friendly and professional. I like how flexible Kerry was, and how she was able to interview me at short notice over FaceTime. Thanks again for all your help!"
"I would like to thank Ben and Gareth as well as Jack who were all superb,professional and always very personable. They got the profile of job I was after straight away. Much appreciated. I find Cherry to be head and shoulders above other recruiters."
"Cherry Professional I have found to be a very professional recruitment outfit and willing to listen to your requirements. They have got a dedicated and professional team who will advise you on how things are progressing from an initial chat to hopefully the job offer. In a very competitive recruitment market they have grown over 10 years - hence they must be doing something right, - keep it going."
"I was impressed with the service at Cherry Professional, they listened when I registered with them to my requirements and were in contact with me through my job search. The Recruitment Consultant I dealt with, Kate Lavery was excellent and very easy to deal with."
"Extremely amazing service! Nicola was very instrumental with my success in landing a new role. She forwarded my CV to the company which best suited my skills and experience. She was professional and kept me updated every step of the way, which boosted my confidence. Connor stepped in during her absence and was just as amazing. Great teamwork! Cherry Professional definitely knows what they are doing; creating the best fit for companies and individuals."
"Everyone I dealt with were extremely helpful, professional, enthusiastic and positive about finding a suitable vacancy. The support and service is spot on and way above the other agencies I have registered at and visited. It is all about communication and really understanding what the candidate is looking for. I would not hesitate recommending cherry professional to my colleagues, friends and family. I was very impressed with their support and service and can't thank Georgia enough for helping me to find my new role and employer."
"A friendly and professional organisation that pays attention to your needs and best matches you to an organisation that is well suited. I am very grateful to have found a permanent position within 2 months of my placement."
"Over the past few months Kerry has secured hers and Cherry's place on the speed dial of my recruitment bat phone, she has worked tirelessly on several roles and consistently provides great quality candidates at often very short notice. Down to earth and adaptable, I trust Kerry and the team absolutely to represent our brand professionally and dynamically, despite frequently changing directions and challenging briefs. And just as importantly, even on a tough day she's always able to put a smile on my face - I look forward to working with Cherry again in the future!"
"Claire Watts was an absolutely brilliant consultant. She was supportive and helpful throughout the whole process. The relationship between me as an employee and the consultant is very important especially if there are any concerns. I felt supported and encouraged all the way"
"I have always found Cherry Professional to be just that, Professional. In my opinion they are one of the most proactive customer focused (client and candidate) agencies in the East Midlands, who always to go the extra mile to ensure they match the right candidates with the right roles.
Whether it be on the recruitment or candidate side they are in my top 3 go to recruitment agencies in the East Midlands."
"Cherry Professional were great throughout the whole process. They quickly identified roles that suited my skillset and career goals, coached me through the interview process, and made sure I got a good offer. As a candidate I can't ask for anything more."
"Richard was great, he made sure he knew my experience and personality before recommending me for any jobs, he kept me updated throughout the process, spoke to me in detail about the role and the company to make sure it was right for me, I'm very happy with my new job! Thanks"
"Ross Hillman is an excellent recruiter and very knowledgeable about the finance industry. He was able to give me some fantastic advice to prepare for interviews and helped me to secure a great job! Highly recommended."
"Claire Gregory was an absolute star, a pleasure to deal with and a breath of fresh air compared to other recruiters I have used before. She was knowledgeable, informative and super positive and efficient, an absolute star! Thank you Claire for landing me my dream job!!"
"I have experience of Cherry Professional as a candidate.
During all communications I found Richard Bowe to be professional, responsive, approachable and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and the advice he offered was exceptionally helpful.
I would not hesitate to recommend Cherry Professional to any professional associates who have a position to fill or are a candidate themselves."
"I have been with a few Recruitment Agencies over the years and I can honestly say that the support I have received from Nicola and Connor at Cherry Professional has been second to none.
I have recommended Cherry to all my friends."
"Georgia was absolutely fantastic. Brilliant finding a role for me! She's always lovely, helpful and genuinely cares. Couldn't fault her. This is the best recruitment agency I've come across. Really want to find work for you and are supportive from start to finish."
"The service I received from Claire was A*, she kept me informed along the process and couldn't do enough to help me. She is an asset to the company and more recruitment agencies need more Consultants like her!"
"Cherry Professional contacted me after seeing my CV online. After meeting the team in their Nottingham office. I found them to be enthusiastic, proactive and professional. It did not take Ross long to secure me an interview. I received an informative email regarding the interview and an encouraging phone call the day before my interview. After securing a second interview I got the job and was very happy."
"Kelly was very professional from the start and kept me well informed throughout the process. The paperwork was quick and efficiently processed. I would recommend Cherry personnel to everyone looking for that perfect role"
"Cherry Professional is a truly amazing agency that is far ahead of its competition. They are prompt with communication, insightful with advice, and welcoming with their team. I would recommend them to anyone seeking a new career path, as they have definitely helped me with mine."
"From the very first step till the end, I was very well informed and directed by Georgia in a very kind way. I followed each step Georgia directed me and her help as well supported me to take the position. Thank you very much!"
"Kieran is an amazing recruitment consultant! I had a lot going on at the time, and I felt he was extremely supportive, and pretty much motivated me throughout the whole process.
I love how I was invited in, to have a mini chat about my career aspirations. Kieran then found me multiple roles based on this, and he was extremely efficient in finding me these opportunities. I received a lot of support, such as preparing for interviews, tests etc. Kieran would even contact me after my interviews to follow up. I have experienced recruiters where you're left completely in the dark. I would 100% recommend Cherry professional! Thank you so much"
"I applied for a few jobs through cherry professional and when I was successful for interviews, I was always sent information before hand, phone calls on the day to wish me luck and also after to talk about how it went. When job roles weren’t what I was looking for, Ruby was understanding."
"I came to Cherry Professional with an urgent recruitment need and was immediately impressed by Claire's response. Claire really helped me to get clarity on the priorities for the role and therefore the candidate, quickly tuning in that cultural fit was my number one concern. In taking the time to truly consult, Claire didn't bombard me with multiple CVs and a long "shortlist" but within 24 hours presented me with a high quality candidate that met all my requirements. It's clear that the team at Cherry Professional are extremely customer focused and take pride in delivering excellent, professional and cost competitive recruitment services and I have no hesitation in recommending them."
"Matthew was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process of me obtaining my current role. He always came back to me, constantly seeking opportunities where other recruitment agencies failed. I have recommended him and Cherry to my case worker whilst on JSA as they often direct candidates seeking employment, this was given with a glowing reference to his conduct and professionalism."
"Matthew was absolutely fantastic. I have been out of the interviewing side of things for many years. But with Matthews help, my mind was at ease. This helped me get the job i applied for. Many thanks Matthew."
"Nicola has been so supportive throughout the whole process and communicated regularly just to check I was ok and ready for the interview process. I believe that Cherry are far more superior to other local recruitment agencies and have your best interests and relevant experience at the forefront to put you forward for roles that you are more suited to."
"When I contacted Cherry, it was in the middle of a major change in terms of staffing. Claire's support in this recruitment exercise took a huge amount of stress away and allowed me to focus more time on contingency planning. The constant communication from Cherry and the quality of candidates sent made the process very smooth and significantly reduced the amount of time between identifying the staffing need and getting the individual in place."
"Really great suggestions and advice the whole way through the recruitment process.
Very down to earth, lovely people which made job searching much more enjoyable!
I was really impressed with the roles put forward to me where other recruiters seemed to cross over quite a lot.
Thrilled with my new job, thank you!!!"
"Dee was extremely helpful not only in finding me a fantastic job but also by helping me to build my confidence along the way. She really understood what I was looking for in a job and always made sure I was prepared and comfortable before any interview. I couldn’t recommend Dee as an advisor/recruiter enough for anyone wanting to get started in finance."
"Dee from Cherry helped us recruit for a Purchase Ledger Finance Assistant and she was absolutely brilliant. She is warm and friendly yet very professional. She came in to meet me to discuss our requirements and tailored her candidate search quite closely to what I needed. It’s a wonderful working relationship we have and I look forward to continuing to work closely with Dee for our recruitment needs in the future. Thank you, Dee!"
"Can't thank all the guys at Cherry enough! Georgia was my consultant, however Danielle & Dee were also a massive help and also come very highly recommended!
They all took the time to chat to me, understand my needs & requirements, matching me up with the perfect role / organisation. All of the feedback was prompt & constructive, thanks again for all the help!"
"A big thank you to Kerry Bilson (as assume nee Kerry Metcalf)! Kerry very kindly conducted a WhatsApp interview that allowed me to register with yourselves without having to come into the office and take time off work. Kerry provided very helpful advice on the interview with the client which has resulted in a successful placement (fingers crossed - so far)!"
"I highly recommend Cherry Professional. Tara was super friendly, attentive, professional and always by my side along the recruitment journey, giving me confidence and the client the reassurance and feedback that I was the perfect candidate for them. I haven’t felt so special in a long time and have landed my dream role thanks to Cherry Professional!"
"I think it's important to meet with your recruitment consultant so they can get a sense of who you are, not just a spread sheet of qualifications and experience. Claire did that and found a job that really relates to me as a person."
"Appreciate the regular contact and personal service I have received so far, quite a rare thing with recruiters I have worked with in the past. I appreciate the emphasis on the relationship between Cherry Professional and the candidate."
"I have been working with Georgia at Cherry since she joined and she has always worked so hard on the roles I give her. Georgia takes time to understand the role and takes an interest. Her communication is excellent - I never have to chase her for CV's or information - she is constantly keeping me updated on new candidates and also Georgia has helped me with bench marking salaries with other local businesses so I can make sure we are competitive. Georgia is a key part to my recruitment function within the business. I don't know what I would do without her. "
"Definitely choose Cherry as your recruitment agency. Professional and extremely helpful and provide all the support and details you need to make the transition into your new role as smooth as possible."
"I could not pick any fault with Kerry's service. She went over & above my expectations! I thought that finding a new job would be stressful & time consuming, I was proved so pleasantly wrong.
Within a week Kerry had contacted me regarding a position, arranged a Face Time interview, got me an interview for the company & then, the job!
Kerry is an asset to the team, very approachable, professional & constantly kept me updated. Thank you so much!"
"Looking for a job whilst employed can sometimes be difficult. Georgia at Cherry professional made it so easy. Video interview due to me working during the day to enrol. Then contact made frequently in whichever way easiest to communicate, email, phone, message to advise next steps, job opportunities, job specs and interview advice. I couldn't rate Georgia highly enough, not only was it pain free but I got the job also #winner"
"I was very impressed by the professionalism and expertise of Nicola and Cherry. We inquired late on a Friday about a vacancy and within the space of 30 minutes we received a CV of a high level candidate who we have now taken on. Nicola was constantly in touch regarding progress of the candidates interviewed and we managed to turn our vacancy around within the space of a week."
"Within 10 minutes of me applying for the job. Tara had rang me to book in a facetime interview that day. The whole process was very thorough and fast. I haven't been waiting around. Tara is very professional but makes you feel very relaxed and gets to know you on a personal level. I have loved working with Tara and I would love to thank her in person for getting me my dream job!"
"Tara was amazing! From day one of contact really helped me have faith in recruitment again! I would tell anyone who wants to find a better recruitment role to call Tara ASAP. Simply outstanding work by Tara. Thank you Tara!"
"I would highly recommend Cherry Professional for others seeking a new opportunity. I dealt with Jackie Lister and she was excellent. She was informative, helpful, and friendly throughout the interview processes and helped give me excellent advice and helped me get an excellent new opportunity.
This was a Great experience from start to finish. I would recommend Cherry to anyone. They did not waste any of my time and I felt it was very important to them not only to get the right candidate for the job but also to get the right job for the candidate."
"I have worked with many different recruitment agencies over the years and none of them measure up to Cherry Professional. I had a first class experience with them from start to finish. They made the whole process easy and enjoyable even. I have now found my dream job and couldn’t be happier. Thank you Cherry Professional!"
"The way that Cherry organise themselves has meant that each time I've used them they have provided a strong and relevant shortlist, prepared the candidates well for interview and ensured that feedback flowed each way. In the past couple of years it’s been three out of three recruits from Cherry, thanks!"
"Dee was great, she helped me through the interview process and gave a lot of advice. Dee was always in contact and frequent updates were given. Thank you for all the advice. I would recommend Dee as I was placed at my job assignment quickly and efficiently."
"I’m very happy with the service that I received from Tara. Tara helped me so much with the interview preparation and I felt at ease and confident and yes I got the job and can't wait to start my new role. I would highly recommend Cherry Professional especially Tara to anyone looking or wishing to make a change in their career."
"This was my first time using an agency and I have to say the support and guidance given by Georgia was amazing. She took the time out of her personal life to talk to me and go through everything with me. I have felt at every step of the way fully informed and as if I was her only client. I can't thank her enough."
"Cherry professional are a great friendly and professional team, who supported me it securing a new role, from an initial informal interview to assess my CV and what I was looking for to securing an interview and offering advice."
"This is the second time I've used Cherry Professional and they are by far the best Recruitment Agency I have used. They are quick to find you relevant work and they keep in regular contact between placements. Georgia and Kerry are both lovely people and they are amazing at what they do. Thank you so much!"
"Five Stars to Jackie ...... She made it happen in one meeting . I did not have to explain a lot about my requirements. She maintained professional approach throughout the process.
She has been in contact with me before and after interviews. Her interpersonal skills are amazing. I was so impressed by the service and would recommend any of my friends to this agency"
"I Joined Cherry Professional on the 15th October and by the 25th October I was employed again! Kerry provided great advice and useful information about the company in advance of my interview and was happy to answer any queries or concerns. I can't fault the professional service and will definitely recommend."
"Ben was incredible throughout the whole process of applying and interviewing.
He took the time to really understand my career plans, and what kind of role I was looking for, meaning that he only suggested roles which were the right fit for me.
He was very knowledgeable about the application and interview process, answering all of my questions and making me feel at ease prior to the interview.
Overall I was very impressed with Ben, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone!"
I thought Kerry was excellent throughout the recruitment process right from the first step. She kept in touch throughout the process and was always on hand with advice and questions I had and still is. She built up confidence in myself especially in preparation for the interview. She identified a role which utilised and suited my skillset. I feel that if anyone I know was to ask me about getting a new role I would point them in Cherry/Kerry’s direction.
"I am very happy with the service I have received from Cherry Professional. My Recruitment Consultant, Kate Lavery, was extremely helpful and friendly. Communication was fast and efficient and all information was received as promised."
"It was my first time using an agency, I was a little apprehensive. However, after my first meeting I came away feeling hopeful and I was right! Just a few days after I was found a temporary job whilst they continued to find me something permanent. Within a week of my temporary role Georgia had set up an interview for something permanent and I was accepted! Georgia always kept me informed and couldn't be more helpful, especially appreciated her time to see how I got on through every stage!"
"Kerry couldn't have been more helpful, she arranged an interview with a local company within days of signing up, although temporary at the moment, there is the possibility of the job becoming permanent. I have the exact hours I was looking for in my local area, couldn't thank her enough!"
"Dee helped us recruit for a General Ledger Finance Assistant (a few short months after we recruited for Purchase Ledger through her) and again she met every single one of the high expectations I have of her. She is professional, friendly and brilliant to talk to. She was able to find someone who matched all our requirements. I love working with Dee and hope to continue working with her in the future. Thank you!"
"I have used Cherry Professional as a client for many years and more recently as a candidate and in both areas I found the service to be excellent. Kate is warm, open and honest on every occasion I have had contact and is a joy to know."
"The standard of support and advice I received from Ruby was outstanding. Ruby called me the morning of my interview, offering advice and if I have any questions. Then followed up after. I was very nervous, but with her calming voice, she really helped to put me at ease. I highly recommend Ruby and the Cherry agency. I would use again if needed. Thank you Ruby :) you are a credit to the team."
"Firstly just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to both you (Georgia) and Kerry for your help in securing this role. You listened to what I was after in terms of role type and location and delivered two cracking opportunities very quickly.
When I left my last job at the back end of October I updated my digital profile on LinkedIn, Indeed and CV Library. Within an hour or so I received a call from Kerry who had picked up my CV online. I must admit I hadn’t heard of Cherry Professional previously but as/when /if I am looking for a new opportunity in the future rest assured you will be at the top of the list.
Once again very many thanks for helping me to secure this position."
"From receiving the initial phone call right through to starting my temporary assignment, Kate was friendly, answered all my questions and made sure I had everything in place for a smooth assignment. Thanks! :)"
"Tara was very thorough and made sure that my application was monitored every step of the way, even when she had to take a weeks’ break she managed to make sure everything was ready for her colleagues to pick up."
"I was contacted very promptly after applying for a role online via a phone call, followed by a face time interview where the consultant took the time to really understand what I'd done and what I was looking for. The role I had applied for was thoroughly explained in detail and I was given every assistance with researching the company.

My experience with Cherry Professional over the years since I first worked for them in 2009 has been a consistently positive one. The consultants have all been professional, helpful and friendly. They also have an upbeat dynamic attitude which ensured that I was never out of temporary work for long.
I am extremely satisfied with the level of service offered by Cherry Professional and I would recommend them highly."

It was a role Georgia suggested and I was successful. I truly appreciate the time both of them have taken and the time they have taken out to stay in touch and ensure I was comfortable before and after interview. From the moment I joined Cherry Professional it has been a fantastic experience with both of them asking questions, being helpful and finding jobs I truly wanted to interview for."

"Nicola was very helpful with me searching for a new job and always updating me if she thought there was one that would be suitable for me.

I can't thank Kerry enough for her professionalism and guidance during my job search. The information she gave me for the interview and feedback were helpful and made the process so much easier."
"The new candidate register process was fast and easy without having to fill in multiple forms and having lengthy on board conversations.
Throughout the process Jackie and Lee kept in contact with me if any new suitable roles were available. The consultants are very good listeners and they want to make sure the placements are right for the candidates. I am very happy with the service and couldn’t thank Lee enough for supporting me. I would recommend Cherry Professional to anyone."

From the initial registration to the final interview - I couldn't be more impressed with how she conducted the job application process. Really excited to start my new job role!"
"Personally I came across Tara Rubbani. She sent my CV across to the different companies. Her vibrant personality is a key element and a driving force in supporting the candidates and guiding them in how to deliver in best possible way in the interviews. After my first interview, she highlighted my weaknesses to overcome for the future interviews and motivated me superbly enabling me to show the best out of me to the interviewers. In the next interview, I was more prepared and after following the guide lines of Tara, I was able to secure a better position in the other company."

From registering with Cherry right up to interview with her client. Nicola has supported, briefed and encouraged me. I would highly recommend Nicola and Cherry Professional if you are seeking a new role. Great job Nicola!!!!"

She has always been courteous and professional and has ensured I have understood the job specification fully and that I had a good understanding of the Union I have joined. Overall fantastic consultancy services from Georgia. Would highly recommend Cherry based on her services."

They have such a professional yet personal touch that I don’t think I have ever experienced elsewhere. Keep up the good work!"
"Kerry called me on Monday and talked me through the description of the job I applied for. We got along straight away and she was so enthusiastic and passionate about her job and helping me get work. She kept me in the loop the whole time, responded quickly, and even wanted to know how the interview went.
Georgia gave me all the interview techniques I needed, kept my mind at ease and both girls are an absolute asset to the team. I've worked in recruitment myself and this is the only company I would recommend as they care about their candidates and clients. I can't say thank you to Kerry and Georgia enough! I won't use another recruitment agency again (if I ever need to!)"
