I must say out of all the Agencies I signed up with (and I signed up with about 10) you guys are by far the best.
Sarah listened to what I actually wanted to apply for and took all my job needs into consideration. You were always helpful with lots of advice and always the other end of the phone if I needed. Sarah you messaged me outside of working hours to help which I really appreciate, you went over and above to help me.
You are the most proactive agency always following up with calls and emails and new jobs, I could always get hold of someone and your staff over the phone and when I came into the office were always so polite and professional.
I will definitely be referring and friends or family to you guys if they need a new job!!

Pursuit was a fantastic recruitment company for helping me find my job. Most of the staff were friendly, happy, and helpful. Unlike some of the other companies Pursuit seems to care about finding you a job and not just filling a company’s vacancy, they sent me over a good number of job opportunities and made sure I was happy with the role before sending my CV across. I can’t recommend them enough for anyone in the creative/design industry and I’m sure they are just as good with other industries.
Abbie – Permanent Candidate
The turnaround was amazingly fast, and I felt listened to and understood throughout. The level of service and co-operation was outstanding, and I really appreciated the pre-interview preparation, down to earth advice and friendly tone.
Courtney stayed in contact with me throughout and updated me regularly, I never once felt like I was left out of the loop or dissatisfied with her service. We had several telephone conversations and even a FaceTime, I found this very welcoming and made feel more of a personal connection. I truly felt like Courtney worked above and beyond in her task of finding me employment. I didn’t feel like I was searching through an agency, she was very friendly and down to earth, putting me at ease throughout.

My experience with Pursuit Group has so far been great.
Having been on a career break for 1 year to travel, I was worried about getting back into work. Jazz made the whole experience easy and I am so glad I contacted her. Within a few days of applying for a position through Pursuit, Jazz had secured an interview for me. She gave me lots of information about the job, and assured me that I was a good fit for the role based on my experience. She helped me prep for the interview by providing lots of useful resources and interview tips. After the interview took place, Jazz kept in regular contact with me, ensuring she was chasing the employer up for feedback. Once I had been offered the position, she then ensured a fair pay rate was negotiated on my behalf.
All in all, my job hunting experience has been easy and stress-free with Jazz’s help. I always feel she has my best interests at the forefront of everything and most importantly always has a positive, helpful & friendly attitude.

“I needed to find a new career as soon as possible and I knew it would take a long time due to the date I started looking for it. But Pursuit contacted me on 1st of January, that was very unexpected and I felt relieved. Just a month later I was in my new job, one that matches everything I was looking for. The service provided for Pursuit was fast and efficient, and they helped me the whole process, making things easier for me.”
Martin – Permanent Candidate

It has been my best experience with an employment agency, ever!”

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help in getting me the position, it is a dream job and you have helped me achieve this so just wanted to say thank you.”
Emily – Permanent Candidate
“Just a quick email to say how much I’ve really appreciated the time and effort that has gone into my job search. It’s difficult when working full time and trying to also get a new job but I’ve felt like you’ve gone the extra mile to make things work and a lot of effort has gone into checking in on my progression through my interview process.
It’s rare to speak with a recruitment agency that really cares about their candidates and not just the deal but with Pursuit I’ve felt really valued the whole time! “
Maddie – Permanent Candidate
“I think you provided the right amount of support and communication whilst I was at Pursuit, I had complete trust that you would find the perfect job for me”
Sophie – Permanent Candidate

Inas – Permanent Candidate
“Your service have been excellent, as I was not just offered the role, I was given recommendations for my CV adjustment and encouragement… I am very happy with the position and the people I am working with. “
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. “
