I can highly recommend Red Berry Recruitment and will definitely be using them again for any temporary staff vacancies.   A suitable candidate was found at short notice who proved to be invaluable; she was conscientious, reliable, hardworking, able to work on her own initiative and definitely someone who we felt we could trust to just get on with the job.

You have found the perfect candidate for us and that was the easiest search ever conducted. Thank you Jodi!

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”.

I just want to say a massive thank you for your time and effort today. The team took a great amount of inspiration from your words and presentation. Clearly your enthusiasm and passion for your work has been the driving force behind your success.
Your presentation highlighted the high quality service and standard that is the back bone of Red Berry. I think we were all left thinking about what, how and when we do things encouraging great ideas and input from all

Thanks so much for your email. Good news and we were very impressed by all the candidates that you put forward – it was a tough decision! We will most definitely be using you again! I’m sure they will be absolutely brilliant.

I just wanted to let you know both Jodi and Lily are a credit to your company. They came across so professionally this morning, along with being very articulate about what they do and offer. It was a pleasure to meet them both. 

Tim, Client

We received excellent service from Jodi. not only did she fill the role, but she has been exemplary in the service she has given us. I have worked with many Recruitment Agencies, but Jodi has been by far the best recruiter I’ve dealt with. She’s an absolute delight to work with! I hope to work with Jodi again in the future.

Thank you for all your efforts over the past two weeks. In my opinion you have been the most committed and dedicated agency I have ever used and look forward to continuing to work with you on future recruitment.
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you. There service has always been second to none and you are both always in constant communication and always reply promptly.

I turned to Red Berry when we were, frankly, struggling to fill a brand-new role in our product marketing team. Jessica, the consultant at Red Berry, was super-energised and on the front foot throughout the process, sourcing lots of good CVs, then working quickly and efficiently to help us land the right person.

I would like to take a minute to recognise the performance of Loretta and the Bridgwater team.
I met with them last week and challenged them to get a team of up to 15 staff ready to work on my site for peak season. In what is a challenging area to recruit this would be no mean feat.
Well within a week I have 15 names all ready to start next Tuesday and support my depot through our peak season, and believe me in parcels this is a significant period of time.
The detail the guys went into in our initial meeting and the subsequent communications have been of the highest level – these guys are a credit to you and Red Berry in general.

I wanted to take an opportunity to offer some feedback for your first class employee Sean Greenfield. Over the last 2 months I required temporary workers for a small service I run in Yeovil. 
Sean has consistently provided a service second to none! Since commencing with the service in Yeovil I have used other recruitment agencies, but finding Sean put an end to all of my troubles! Sean immediately understood exactly what my service needed by way of temporary staff and without drama or delay has provided excellent staff and customer service. 
I cannot offer enough praise and gratitude for the service Sean has offered – he has made my working day return to the pleasure it was before I encountered staffing issues. His cheery disposition is infectious to the extreme.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of having been a client of Jessica Harmer’s both as a prospective employer as well as a professional seeking a new career opportunity.  I can say, without hesitation, that she has exceeded my expectations in all the situations that we have worked together.  She has always demonstrated the highest degree of integrity, kindness, skill, insight, and perseverance.  Jess is very friendly and unwaveringly keeps the interest of her clients at heart, having advised me to take a course of action that was best for me even though the ultimate outcome was not best for her.  I believe this quality is truly rare in the world of professional recruitment and is extremely beneficial in the long-run for her clients.

Debbie, Client
