TESTIMONIAL

If you are looking for a talented recruiter – look no further – Jess Harmer is the person for you.
A few years ago Jess approached us looking to secure new business.  I liked her initial approach which was really refreshing – no ‘hard sell’: no arrogance or self-importance about how brilliant she and the company would be – rather about getting to know me, our company and our requirements.  Over the course of a few weeks we quickly forged a relationship based on true in-depth understanding of who we were, what we needed, how we liked to work; and similarly, the same for me to know how Jess liked to work, her areas of expertise so that we could totally trust one another.  Soon after our initial introduction a tricky role came up in the manufacturing plant: a junior-level QA position which traditionally had been a nightmare to fill.  Through Jess’s absorption of our culture, ways of working, requirements (which included her coming on site to spend time in all areas of the manufacturing site and offices and speaking to the recruiting Line Manager) and passion for our business, she quickly presented us with 3 fantastic candidates.  Ultimately in record time we filled this role and the person remains with us today.
Jess’s special qualities are her boundless enthusiasm for what she does: she truly loves her role and makes the client feel that they are the only ones she’s supporting: quite a unique gift.  Jess takes the time to really understand what you need and will not rest until she is absolutely sure she understands the complexities of each and every role – something that can be incredibly difficult in manufacturing.  She is then very quick to present us with candidates who closely fit our requirements and over the years we have been working with us, she has a great track record of knowing whether someone will ‘fit’ with our culture, or not.  Where she’s uncertain, she will say – and this just adds to the trust we have in her.
Additionally, even when Jess claims she is ‘out of office’ she frequently collects and replies to emails at all times of the day or night – really going the ‘extra mile’.  The candidate feedback about their experience with Jess is amazing: they talk about her being an inspirational recruiter: someone who is totally people focused and gives them the time of day to make them feel really special so when they get an interview and feedback from this, they truly feel unique.
We really look forward to picking up the phone or sending a briefing email to Jess with opportunities.  Her positivity, excitement and enthusiasm is very motivating and even when times have been hard with an almost nil-unemployment in our local area, she can still find us fantastic, talented people to join our team.
Jess is a real pleasure to work with and we view her as a ‘partner in crime’ rather than “just another recruiter”.
