H. P – Group Head of IT
“Pursuit Resources Group have provided us an outstanding service, they have been so friendly, moreover they have made very easy finding the right candidate for an IT role, where using other recruitment agencies just did not have the same quality, only numbers, and very time consuming!!! They have understood our requirements well, making the hiring process more efficient, and for a very competitive price.”
Paul – Human Resource and Office Manager
“Lorraine is very professional in her approach to find the right candidates for the right role.
Lorraine is always very informative and gives her candidates the best chance of being successful.”
Marjan – Chartered Chemical Process Engineer
“Jackie has been very proactive, friendly and supportive throughout the recruitment process and I will always remember that. I would be happy to recommend her to any of colleagues/friends without hesitation.”
Gemma – HR Assistant
“Emma was extremely helpful and supportive in my search for a new job. She understood what I was looking for, and also that I would not always be contactable at the drop of a hat in the way many agencies usually expect candidates to be. This was very refreshing.
I was never pestered constantly nor did I have to constantly maintain contact with Pursuit so that it would not be assumed that I was no longer looking, which is a problem I have had with numerous other agencies in the past. When I did get in touch, Emma always found the time to speak with me or call me back. Overall I found my experience of working with Emma stress free and ultimately successful. She was friendly and easy to talk to and was always keen to hear my thoughts Following an interview. She encouraged me to consider roles I may not have had to confidence to apply for myself.
I have already recommended Emma to a friend and would get in touch with her again myself should I need or want to look for new employment in the future.”
Jaynie – UK HR Director
“I have worked with Pursuit Recruitment for a number of years now and always find them a professional organisation to deal with. Having taken the time to get to know our organisation, Lorraine Phair and her team work closely with us to get further information over and above the job spec to make sure that the right quality of candidates are submitted, both in terms of skill, attitude and aptitude. Their candidate care is excellent, roles are obviously discussed with candidates before they are submitted to us and it is clear that candidates are fully briefed prior to interview. Therefore, the CV to interview rate is high, as is Pursuit’s interview to hire rate.
The service Pursuit provides us with goes beyond just recruitment. From supporting us in our continued professional development to providing timely market information, Pursuit provide a bespoke, boutique persona whilst maintaining a big-company presence.
I would not hesitate to recommend Pursuit as an organisation.”
Julie – Director of Human Resources
“I have worked with Pursuit Recruitment services for the last 12 years, in three different companies but always in the Human Resources department.
I have worked with them at all levels of roles from Warehouse Assistants to Senior Financial Controllers to very specific roles such as Customer Services with German language skills.
I have always found them professional, willing to understand my business needs and proactive.
I would gladly recommend them to other businesses looking to work with a recruitment agency.”
Kerry – Change Manager
“I have worked with Pursuit since its inception as a customer, as I was certain that the service offered by Lorraine as a business owner would be of the highest standard having experienced the service and skillset she offered her employment prior to setting up the business.
My certainty has been proved right on many occasions; I have worked at several organisations since the commencement of my relationship with Pursuit and at each juncture have engaged with Pursuit to fulfil vacancies that have arisen. Initially these were administration roles, but more latterly have moved into Finance, and have ranged from office juniors to senior managers.
Pursuit is a recruitment agency that prides itself on understanding its clients; both from a culture perspective and role remit as well the organisation design and dynamic. That pride is driven from Lorraine, and as Director of the group she still manages to balance the personal touch without compromising or undermining the consultants that are employed.
Lorraine is always keen to understand if any why a business relationship is not working, and actively seeks feedback on the recruitment experience from both a client and candidate perspective. Where Pursuit has not met their exacting standards Lorraine is always keen to understand why this has been the case and extends this curiosity by asking relevant and appropriate questions of clients.
Lorraine is a delight to deal with on a personal level, she is honest and straightforward and encourages employees and candidates of the group to be the same. Her personality and drive to help others succeed and develop is clearly demonstrated through the seminar programme that Pursuit regularly offer.
I would wholly recommend Pursuit as a recruitment business partner. “
