The experience I had with Lawrence Dean Recruitment was second to none, the team were helpful, caring and considerate. Kelly Notley especially is an excellent recruiter in my opinion, Kelly always had time to speak with me about several job opportunities and Kelly always updated me with new job roles available and which she thought I would be great for. Kelly Notley found me a job which was perfect for my skills and experience and since then I have been offered a job from which Kelly put me forward for. I think without Kelly Notley and Lawrence Dean Recruitment I would still be looking for a new job but with the help and assistance from Kelly and the team I do not have to look any further. I want to thank Lawrence Dean Recruitment for all their hard work and expertise.

I found Lawrence Dean to be very professional and informative. I dealt with Sarah throughout and I felt that she was very good at keeping me in the picture throughout the process. Although I didn't get the role I had been put forward for, she was still quick to come back to me and reassure me that there wasn't anything specific as to why I didn't get the role - it was down to personality fit with the company which was very helpful. The pre-interview session with Sarah helped to relax me and prepare my mind set.

Jane

Lawrence Dean provide a personal service and make the job searching process easy and even enjoyable. They keep you up to date without fail, and always pursue what is right for the candidate. I would recommend them to anyone, as they are always an absolute pleasure to deal with. You don't not feel 'sold off' with Lawrence Dean, and I have experienced this previously with other agencies. They genuinely care and are passionate about what they do, and that is why I have and will use them, for years to come.

Sandra

I have been fortunate to work with Lawrence Dean on more than one occasion. I say fortunate because prior to working with them my experience of recruitment agencies was very poor. I was recommended to use them by an ex-colleague who was impressed by them. My experience from start to finish was refreshing, the whole team seemed dedicated to find me a job and to get to know me on a personal level. They were warm, friendly and although incredibly busy took the time to truly understand what I wanted and how they would get this for me. I temped through them for 6 months in a variety of assignments to help build up my CV, I was fully briefed about every role and had regular feedback about my performance. Something that really impressed me was how they paid me. It sounds silly but other agencies always messed up my wages, put me on emergency tax, forgot to pay me and relied on me chasing them. Lawrence Dean got it right first time, although it was my fault they chased me when I for got to send through my timesheet on time rather than just not paying me. They genuinely care about you, something I have never found before! I have worked in loads of great companies through them. I would never use another agency again!

Matt

Clare has been fantastic throughout my search for work. She really listened to me, and only spoke to me about really relevant jobs. She gave me honest and direct feedback about my CV and interview skills which has ultimately help me find my perfect new job! I cannot thank her enough

Jane

Thank you for all your help and guidance in finding me such a great position! What sets you aside from all the other agencies I have signed with, is your care and attention to detail in finding the right position. I have found that Kelly keeps in regular contact with me which means I am aware of new applicable positions/vacancies earlier than I am with other agencies. The personal development and feedback gained has been fantastic and really helping me build on my employability skills. As a graduate I have valued your honest and frank approach to my CV, skills and potential. Overall I would like to thank you for helping to boost my confidence, make the job seeking process a lot easier and I would 100% recommend you to anyone.

Laura

Emma is so knowledge in her area of recruitment. After meeting with her she responded quickly and found me a number of well suited opportunities within a week! This exceeded all previous expectations I have had of recruitment agencies. I registered only with her and have only and would only work with Lawrence Dean in the future.

Simon

I cannot thank Rochelle enough for all the help she gave me whilst looking for a new job. She gave me valuable advice and offered me a solution that really worked for me. At no point did I feel uncomfortable, or nervous. She was great!

Rachel

My experience of Lawrence Dean has been great! They are always there for you. I have found other agencies don't care to get to know you, and aren't always as helpful. I found everyone there to be friendly, and they really make things happen.

Terese

The service provided by Sarah and the team is so much more personal than other larger agencies, and they seem to really care about placing you in the right job, rather than just any job. I have received excellent service from all employees. I would, and have, recommended them to anyone who asks me about how I found my job. In one word I would describe them as outstanding and keep up the brilliant work.

Sarah

I found Lawrence Dean to be a very professional organisation that understands the needs of the candidate. The service they offered was professional and reassuring. The team understood the type of position I was interested in and I was put forward as a candidate for exactly the right type of jobs.

Caroline

I found the service from Lawrence Dean to be exceptional and very caring about me as a person. The speed at which the team found me an interview was fantastic and not only that it was for a job that was suited to me. The team kept me informed at all times and did not forget me. I would describe them to be helpful, committed, caring and knowledgeable and would like to say a huge thank you.

Pauline

So far the service provided by Lawrence Dean is as I would expect from a recruitment agency. The professional standard is good; I have always felt that I was treated as an individual; I always felt comfortable discussing any queries relating to my search for work or in connection with a booking. I have already recommended you to some other friends / acquaintances and will continue to do so in the future in line with the above statements.

Judy

Nothing is too much trouble for the ladies at Lawrence Dean. They are always professional and friendly and do what they say they will. Their warm and friendly can-do attitude reflects throughout their whole team. Their professional and friendly service has been consistent throughout all my dealings with them. Starting my own business has meant I am not always as flexible with the hours I am available to work however Sarah is mindful of this and still works to accommodate me. A big thank you to the whole team!

Philippa

Lawrence Dean has by far exceeded my expectations. The staff are kind, considerate and go out of their way to help you. I dealt with Sarah Bennett from start to finish and she always made time for me. She went through interview tips thoroughly and made me feel like a person rather than a number. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Lawrence Dean Recruitment and I would definitely recommend them to others.

Niki

I was absolutely thrilled with the way Laurence Dean Recruitment helped me to find employment. They found me a job almost immediately after I signed up with them, and they also found lots of other suitable jobs for me if my original application was not successful. They have a very personable manner and I felt they actually cared about my best interests. I would and have recommended Laurence Dean Recruitment to others. Keep up the great work!

Amy

The Lawrence Dean team were reassuringly friendly and were genuinely keen to help. Because of this, I felt confident that they would find me something, and that I would not go overlooked. I received lots of constructive criticism to help improve my (ridiculously long) cv, which, surprisingly, no other agency had ever provided. The interview coaching was incredibly helpful, and helped alleviate my nerves before the big day. Overall, I think the main difference between Lawrence Dean and other agencies is that you offer a much more friendly and relaxed environment, which was exactly what I needed during my stressful job search.

Tom

In my interaction with Lawrence Dean Recruitment, I would say they are professional yet personal. It's nice to be on first name terms with the team. I feel totally at ease speaking with anyone in the office and I feel really part of the extended team and welcome to contact them whenever you need. Assignments are very much tailored to your individual requirements and strengths; I have found my last two placements perfect for me. Lawrence Dean Recruitment is genuinely the only recruitment agency I feel comfortable working with. I have recommended Lawrence Dean because of the way they deal with each person in such an individual manner. They seem to know what will suit people and what won't, and this is relayed in a friendly manner which puts people at great ease and develops a sense of trust. Keep up the great work and I hope to work with you during my next University break!

Rachel

I just wanted to drop you a note to say massive thank you to you and your staff at Lawrence Dean. I found you all very helpful and not like your usual run of the mill recruitment agency. You looked after my needs as much as the hiring company which I found really refreshing and more personal.

James

Thank you so much to you and all the girls in your office. Everyone was always so lovely and welcoming, and it really did help with all my worries about returning to employment after such a big gap. You all worked so hard on my behalf and did absolutely brilliantly. I have been singing your praises to everyone I know.

Jemma

Sarah is what you need when hunting down your next role. She provided constant care and time to help me. She's honest, extremely helpful and dedicated. She took the time to prep me before an interview, ran through questions, gave examples of what to expect and helped me understand what employers are looking for. I was coached by a true expert. Even though I had Sarah to guide me through this process, all the girls provided me with a welcoming, friendly, professional service. I have recommended Lawrence Dean and will continue to do so. Thank you for your support, care and advice-should I need an agency again then I know where to come.

Laura

I just wanted to send you a quick email just to say a massive thank you to you all for everything you have done. I have now been given me a year's contract, and I'm so grateful that you have given me this opportunity. I wish Kelly, Sarah and the team every success in the future. Lawrence Dean really does stand in the local area, they are the only agency that listened to me, offered a solution to my search for work and genuinely cared about what I wanted. In the nicest way possible I hope I won't be seeing you again in a years' time, but if unfortunately they cannot offer me a further position within the company, then I know where to come.

Lisa

Caroline I'd just like to thank you for helping me get my new job. I'm grateful for all the help you gave me, I wouldn't have done so well in the interview without your help and support, especially as you stayed out of your work hours to help me. I will definately recommend Lawrence Dean Recruitment to my friends.

Sarah

I applied for summer work through multiple employment agencies with little success and was feeling demoralised and concerned about my University expenses. However, Lawrence Dean quickly found me a position which suited my skills, requirements and availability perfectly. Lawrence Dean cared about my wellbeing as an employee and I was particularly impressed by the extremely efficient and helpful manner in which any queries I had were solved. I feel Lawrence Dean took a genuine interest in my needs as an individual rather than simply another client. I have already recommended the agency to friends and would not hesitate to do so again in the future.

Bryony

Sarah contacted me during my recent job hunt. I found her to be proactive, thorough and dedicated to finding me the ideal position. She is professional and also friendly. I absolutely recommend Sarah if you are about to embark upon a job search.

Yasemin

Sarah is the consummate professional. Nothing was too much trouble and working with her got me where I am today. If you need a door opening to get you in She will move everything to get that door open. Great to work with and I would recommend her without hesitation.

Michael

I have no hesitation in recommending Kelly to anyone who is looking for a recruiter that will go that extra mile on their behalf. Kelly was a pleasure to work with - very professional, dedicated, understanding and easy to talk to. She always delivered information when promised, kept me up to date, gave me very practical advice and crucial feedback. Thank you so much for your support Kelly it was invaluable!

Magdalena

Emma truly is a breath of fresh air to the recruitment industry an excellent asset to both Candidate and Client.

Sarah

I would like to say thank you for the assistance you have provided to me through Lawrence Dean Recruitment for the period that I have been unemployed (March to July). The service that you have provided was in my opinion a lot more personal than some agencies that I have had dealings with during this time. I was constantly kept updated about suitable positions and at no stage felt pressured in following through with a position that I did not feel comfortable with. The interview that I attended (through Lawrence Dean) was invaluable in providing me with interview experience and I was given a full brief and further assistance before the interview took place. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and colleagues, and would also seek your assistance with finding further employment in the future should the need arise.

Rob

Thank you Lawrence dean Recruitment, you have been a true support every step of the way for me, you are by far the most professional and personal recruitment agency in the market, the support and advice you gave me, made it possible for me. Thank you. I would and do highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a new career, you will be given time and attention.

Lorean

I couldn't recommend Lawrence Dean Recruitment enough. In the very short time I'd spent in touch with Clare, I was lucky enough to be offered a permanent position within 7 days. I've been with other recruitment agencies before so from personal experience I thought that the service I received from Clare was first class. I spent an hour the day before my interview going through my C.V, all interview techniques, questions and how to give positive answers. This was definitely extremely beneficial to my first interview. Communication with Clare was vital between my first and second interview, more expert advice and techniques to help me through. It worked. I was offered the job and can't thank Clare enough for all the help and effort she went through to see me get placed so soon after first sending my C.V. Although Lawrence Dean are a small recruitment company, they definitely have the expertise and guidance. 150% better than any other company I've been with before. So thank you for all the support and effort that you gave me. I wish you all the best with the company and hope others find your service as first class as I did.

Rachael

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lawrence Dean Recruitment or to contact them again if I was looking for employment, or indeed was in the position to recruit myself. I experienced a professional, pro-active, efficient company with their clients and candidates' best interests at heart. Their constructive advice on editing my 'run of the mill' CV make such a difference to my job applications, resulting in success. I'm looking forward to starting my new position!

Helen

As a candidate of Emma's I have been impressed with her approach and general care for me - my candidate experience is important to her, and she never hides behind email conversations, instead making time to reach out personally by phone; she also follows up and delivers on agreed deadlines and communications - this makes her stand out from the crowd! Emma demonstrated an innate ability to really get to know 'me' as a person as well as from a candidate perspective, and I value her as a partner in my search for my next professional opportunity, as well as a business contact for future reference.
