Testimonials from candidates

I've had a brilliant first week in my new role, I think it's a really good fit for me, the work is right up my street and I'm looking forward to my future here! I just wanted to thank you for everything that you did, from connecting me with the job to all the support and communication. Obviously it was a big move for me moving to another country and getting my first grad job and I really appreciated having someone so positive and friendly there to put me at ease throughout the process of interviewing and moving to the area. You have been on point from day one of my application.

I take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful work you have done for me.  Joe not only does everything, including mock video interview, with very valuable tips which has given me very high confidence. One more thing which required special mention is even though I am not selected after first interview he kept my morale up by arranging another interview. I really appreciate his dedication to find role for the candidate in any circumstances. Joe has done a fantastic job for me. Thanking you once again. 

I have had the pleasure in being a client of Coulter Elite with Simon being my recruitment agent. Sorry to bother you via email regarding feedback, however I wanted to ensure Simon got the feedback he deserves by going directly to you both.

Simon has been well and truly excellent. And that's a complete understatement. I was a client of his roughly 2 months ago when he contacted me about a role at greenyard for a junior marketing manager. However due to other job offers on the table I had to discontinue with the recruitment process with greenyard. But 2 months down the line I realised that the role I am currently in really isn't for me so I decided to make a change for myself and contacted Simon back. 

Not only did Simon work his socks off in contacting everyone I had tried to apply to before contacting him, he also networked with other colleagues to see what other positions were available. Throughout the process, he kept me updated every day without fail, continuously keeping me in the loop about what was going on. That's was a massive help throughout in letting me know exactly where I stand and with who. 

Additionally, he was polite, enthusiastic, encouraging and most importantly he has incredible rapport building. Throughout the process I didn't necessarily feel like a client, I genuinely felt like one of his friends that he was trying so hard to help out with searching for a job. 

With his sheer work ethic and excellent communication skills he was able to land me a role a greenyard which is seriously something I'm incredibly excited for. I have Simon to thank for being so on the ball throughout. 

The list can really go on about all the positives I have experienced with coulter elite and if a job change is required in the future, Simon has certainly ensured a repeated customer. 

I would like to thank Simon and coulter elite for being so great and I hope this feedback is fully recognised and is a great reflection on Simon's performance. 

In the past I haven't been a big fan of recruitment agencies; asking me to sell a pen, having to complete computer based grammar tests and an interesting lack of listening skills, not to mention the non-existence of communication! However, thankfully there is Scott! Far from the usual recruitment consultant. From start to finish, Scott was informative, communicative and excellent to deal with! He was right with me on the lead up to the interview and responsive to any questions I had. He clearly had a great relationship with his client and was able to establish the perfect employment match! I would not hesitate to recommend Scott and I am extremely thankful to him for finding me, not just a job, but the perfectly aligned life career! Thanks Scott, you're great, sincerely.

A big thank you to Wendy at Coulter Elite for helping me find my next career adventure! Wendy was on-hand at every stage in the process to ensure I was fully prepared, offering advice and support based on her recruitment knowledge, her knowledge of the company and the role itself. The service was friendly, efficient and extremely personal which really helped boost my confidence at what can be quite a stressful time. Thank you so much Wendy!

I can safely say, hand on heart, if it wasn’t for Ollie’s and the team's help I wouldn’t have found the perfect job for me! Great, friendly and professional team that helped me every step of the way. Thank you so much.

I found Scott extremely helpful, keeping me up to date throughout the process with great advice and luckily for me it resulted in my recent job offer! Thank you Scott!

My name is Charmaine and I am 44 years old. On returning to the UK after been abroad for 10 years I came across Coulter Elite Resourcing by pure accident. I arrived at the offices unexpected and unannounced, desperate for a job or someone just to help me start looking in the right line of employment. On entering the office, I received a warm, friendly welcome by one of the team members and then immediately referred to Mr Stephen Gough, I received such a welcome that I felt at ease immediately. He listened to my story and then started looking through appropriate jobs that may or may not suit me. He then looked at my CV, credentials etc and found everything in order. He then said he would contact one of his clients which he was sure would be interested in utilising me. I started shortly after that visit with a temp assignment, he then kept me up to date with new jobs arising. I was very impressed by his professionalism but also his humanity he shows, he made me feel unique and took chances on me with jobs, he then placed me in a maternity cover job where I have now become permanent. I would forever be indebted to him and his team for the utter professional way they handled me. Steve still keeps in touch and if I need a new job in the future, he will be the one I would run to. He is a true diamond.

I recently applied for and acquired a new position through Coulter Elite Resourcing. My previous experience with recruitment agencies, as a prospective candidate, have not been positive, with at best, scant feedback, misinformation at times and often no return communication at all. Coulter Elite was the complete opposite, Sian was excellent to deal with, she made initial contact with me within 12 hours of my application, followed up regularly and was supportive right through the process up to and after I was offered the position. This has been the most positive interaction I have had as a prospective candidate with any recruitment agency and I thank Sian and the team for the experience and help in securing this position.

It would be great if you find right person to get advices and supports for your job searching process and Wendy is one of the best. She works hard to find a right position for candidates and doing her best to describe the requirement of employers about any particular vacancy. Moreover, she has a strong knowledge of job market and she is able to introduce hidden jobs which are not commonly advertised in regular job websites. I would definitely recommend her to my friends to work with on their job seeking.

I can safely say that I would never have acquired my new job if it wasn’t for Wendy and her team at Coulter Elite Resourcing. I was notified as soon as the job became available and based on my background, experience and immediate aspirations they knew that I would make a good fit for the job. If you are someone searching for the job you desire and looking for an encouraging, supportive and helpful team to help you along the way then I highly recommend Wendy and Coulter Elite.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and Coulter Elite. You have been so professional and friendly and thanks to you I now have an excellent interview. This is the first time I have used a company like your own and was quite nervous however I didn't need to be as Coulter Elite was fantastic. Thank you for enabling me to obtain the job I have searching for.

From the first point of contact with Wendy her approach and professionalism shone through and made finding me the perfect job that much easier, nothing was too much of a problem with finding out further information from the client prior and between interviews. I would certainly recommend her services offered as I feel she works well for both the client and candidate.

Thank you very much for all your help and assistance in helping me become successful in my application to work for Focus Media. It was very refreshing to meet with Coulter Elite who immediately gave me a warm welcome and your time without question after I walked in to your offices off the street unannounced. After contacting endless agencies either by telephone or in person I can honestly say you was the only company who took the time to discuss with me my situation and my aims and ambitions which I feel you was able to relay to your clients when putting me forward for this position. As a former employer of people I think your organisation should be delighted with your attitude towards people as this only enhances your clients faith in your recommendations and I will always thank you for the politeness, professionalism and the courtesy that you showed me from the minute I walked through the door.

When I went in to meet Wendy I was pushed through my boundaries and 'grilled' within an inch of my life! (all in a very positive way!) Having been out of full time employment for over 4 years Wendy gave me feedback on my CV and an up-to- date picture of the employment market. By re- shaping my approach and perspective I was able to position myself for the role and company and I was offered an interview, leading to a second interview and successfully being offered the role. Wendy's approach was so refreshing as no one had given me such an honest critique and whilst my skills, experience and personality were all there, having the inside knowledge on what employers actually want is vital. Wendy, to me, went the extra mile. Thank you again, Wendy.

I had spent 18 months trying to find the right job for me. I tried various recruitment agencies within the Peterborough area without much success, always being told there was nothing available or nothing in my line of work. I had applied for other positions using the local press as well, to no avail. Then I contacted Coulter Elite Resourcing who seemed to understand the type of role I was looking for and the situation I was in. After a day they rang me to say they had found a position which they thought would be suitable and put my CV forward. After two long interviews and 3 weeks of Wendy Coulter negotiating on my behalf I was successful in obtaining the position and the financial package that I was looking for. Coulter Elite kept me informed through out the lengthy process and nothing seemed to much for them. I thought that there was nothing out there for me but Coulter Elite Resourcing found my needle in a haystack. I am now looking forward to my career as a Buyer.

I was very impressed with the service I received from Coulter Elite Resourcing. They made finding the correct job for me stress free and easy. They kept me up to date and I found work within a week. I will recommend them in the future as I was very impressed with the service I received.

I have known Wendy for several years and recently made contact again after a substantial period of time, yet Wendy still had the ability to remember me and the skills and experience I had previously. I was interested in a role that Wendy was advertising and having discussed in detail what the role and organisation was looking for I was put forward for consideration. I was impressed to see that Wendy only put candidates forward who she felt could do the role, had the right experience and fit for the organisation. I was kept up to date at all times with details of interviews, dates etc and any feedback both verbally and in writing. A contributing factor to my success in being offered the position was the fact that Wendy provided me with excellent information about the organisation and the role itself, I was well informed and prepared. There were no surprises at the interview. Coulter Elite Resourcing Ltd is for me a quality recruitment agency, from the offices they work from, the staff they employ to the customer service they provide. I highly recommend this agency to any employer and to anyone looking for a role.

I would like to thank you for your professional support during this recruitment process. Your knowledge about the advertised role and the company culture was admirable. Also, you spent time to clarify the needs of the role and to understand my needs and the skills I have to offer. I will recommend your agency to anyone based on my experiences, especially open, honest and timely communication and prompt actions when needed. Thank you very much.

From my first phone call and throughout my time in contact with CER I have been nothing but impressed with what they have done for me. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful, I love how from my first contact they knew my name and remembered me making me feel value and confidence that cannot be bought. They weren't just an agent but a friendly support with your best interests at heart, I could call anytime about any detail of the jobs I was put forward for. CER helped me to identify my strengths, improve my CV and boost my interview techniques. I am sure that not only would I have been unaware of the jobs I had been put forward for but I would not have been successful without the help CER gave. I was able identify my strengths, weaknesses and the career paths those could bring about, something I have struggled with my whole adult life. A good agency cannot be beaten for helping you find a job, not only will they help you make the most of the skills you have but they will fight your corner for you. I have no doubt CER has been doing this for me, and they have kept me informed of every development along the way no matter how big or small. I have had frequent emails and phone calls explaining developments in job applications as well as some wonderful little touches like last minute phone calls to wish me luck, give last minute tips and boost enthusiasm! I was also impressed with the amount of contact out of hours I was given, often just to get feedback from an interview or remind me of things! I truly couldn't ask for more and in the end I have ended up being offered multiple jobs and having to make some big decisions, and even then the agency have helped me pick out what they feel would be best for me from an impartial point of view. I have landed a dream job that I hope will become a very long successful career and I have Coulter Elite Resourcing to thank for that.

I would just like to say thank you to Ricky for all his help and for helping me secure my new role. He made the whole job search process really easy from start to finish and made me feel like I was his only client, a personal touch that other agencies desperately lack! Having secured my friend and now myself positions I firmly believe that Coulter Elite are by far the best recruitment agency in Peterborough.

I have worked with various recruiters in the past and have found them to be uneducated on my industry and not very professional. However, working with Ricky Dent (and the whole team as well) at Coulter Elite has restored my confidence. Not only did he find me a position that was right for me in super quick time, he was very professional, friendly, knowledgeable (on both my industry and the company) and full of advice from the start, which made the whole process from start to finish run like clockwork. Great agency to work with, and if the unforeseen was to happen, they would be my first phone call.

I became a client of Coulter Elite Resourcing after having been made redundant from the Engineering sector. I applied for a position and was contacted by Ricky Dent to discuss the opportunity further. Ricky was professional and very knowledgeable of his client and their available position and when he interviewed me, I felt that I was working with a friendly and informed company. The process continued through an initial interview and a further follow up interview with the client company. Throughout the whole process Ricky and Coulter offered me unlimited support and advice to allow me to try to get the best possible outcome. I feel appreciative and grateful to have had such a great company behind me on my search to return to the industry where my heart is.

Getting in contact with Coulter Elite Resourcing came out of left field for me. I had been using various job search techniques and had recently updated my CV on a few internet locations and am very glad that I did. Mark Deaton rang me and explained that he had a job that I seemed to fit and that I might be interested in; and would I be able to come in for an initial interview/discussion about the role. Mark was very professional, very knowledgeable and full of useful advice for me about how to proceed with certain aspects of my job hunt and interview technique. Through Mark I was able to gain the opportunity to interview for a job that I really wanted and that I hadn't imagined I would be interviewing for when I started my job search two months ago; and with his help not only did I interview for it and get invited back for a second interview, but I got offered the position too. I cannot thank Coulter or Mark enough for their help in landing me a role in the industry I wanted to be in above all others. I feel very lucky and am very much looking forward to my future employment. I would recommend this agency to anyone who is serious about finding an amazing job.

Having worked alongside recruiters previously, I am very happy to express my thorough appreciation and gratitude towards Coulter Elite Resourcing. My experience of applying for a role and interviewing the same day reflects what a great job Wendy is doing. The position I took on fitted all of my expectations and I have still have regular contact with Wendy who is always available to help. Thank you.

I became a client of Coulter Elite Resourcing after applying for a job online. Having being invited to come and discuss the position in person with Wendy, I was pleasantly surprised that Wendy took the time to really explain the job role and ask me what I was looking for from the position and my career prospects in general. After years of working for different organisations I was looking for a role that would challenge me and give me an opportunity to really prove what I can do. Had it not been for the realistic advice and self-belief which Wendy provided me with I may stll be looking for that position. Luckily, after only a week since originally applying for the position I have been offered the job and it is so much more than what I was hoping for! Coulter Elite Resourcing Ltd and specifically Wendy have been absolutely brilliant! It has been a completely different experience compared to all the other Recruitment agencies out there. Genuinely helpful, professional and efficient. I will definitely be recommending Coulter Elite to any friends or family looking for work and would not hesitate to use them again should the need arise.

I would like to thank Mark greatly for all his help and advice in assisting me in finding my new job. I found Mark to be very informed about your client and the job market, thus the advice offered put me in good stead for the vacancy. I will certainly keep your details at hand and recommend Coulter Elite Resourcing and Mark to friends and colleagues in the future. Once again, a very big thank you for all your help.

Wendy has helped me before - when I first moved to Peterborough in 1993. I was grateful to Wendy then and I am grateful to her again now in 2010. Once again she has helped me find a new role and I couldn't be more excited about it. Wendy took time to listen to me and what I wanted and, equally importantly, what I didn't want! She recognised my skills and personality matched a role she had and put me forward immediately for it. Happily I succeeded in securing the role! Wendy is completely professional and I trust her implicitly. I hope I don't have to use her services again for all the right reasons but should I ever need to, I would not hesitate.

I cannot recommend this agency enough. The day after I applied for the position online I received a call from Wendy and was in with her for an interview the following day. Wendy put me through for the position and helped me with interview questions and gave me all the information I needed to research for the interview. She was very friendly and called after the interview to see how it went. Wendy also helped me in my salary negotiations. I can honestly say this has been the smoothest process I have experienced through a recruitment agency.

Wendy Coulter from Coulter Elite Recruitment has assisted me in finding a fantastic new opportunity to help me develop my career. With the understanding and knowledge Wendy has in recruitment I felt assured from the first moment I spoke to her that I would find exactly what I was looking for, this has turned out to be the case. The whole team at Coulter Elite adopt a very professional and efficient attitude to there work and understood how I was feeling all the way through the recruiting process, I would recommend Coulter Elite's services to anyone and not hesitate to contact Wendy again should the need arise. Thanks again.

From the moment I spoke to Wendy I knew she would find the right job for me. She listens to your work/career needs and desires, and sources only the best jobs. After meeting with Wendy and explaining exactly what I wanted in my new career she set out to find me the ideal job. She understands that personality is just as important as qualifications and experience, only putting forward the right candidate for the right roles. Wendy is so thorough and precise that I got the first job she put me forward for, this is because she has the knowledge and experience to know exactly what is needed not only from the candidate but the employer too. If I ever want a career change, I would once again put all my trust in Wendy. The whole experience has been enjoyable and she was there every step of the way to support and guide me through interviews and assessments, any questions or queries I had, Wendy had answered immediately. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Working with Coulter Elite to find my latest role was a joy, this is how a recruitment agency should function! They were very professional and helped me through the process. We worked together to update my CV and practice interview skills. It is the first time I have worked with such a pro-active and dedicated recruitment company. They really have it in the bag. Well done and thanks to all at Coulter Elite.

I just wanted to thank you for finding and persuading me to apply for a job, which I didn't think I had a chance of getting! If it wasn't for your encouraging words and advice, I firstly wouldn't even have applied for the job and secondly didn't think that I was good enough to get the job. My future definitely looks much brighter thanks to Coulter Elite Resourcing Ltd. Your commitment of chasing up my new employer and not forgetting about me when I thought my chance had gone won't be forgotten.

Just a quick email to say thanks so much for all your help with my recent job search. I know the company were a little reluctant to see me as I had been out of the market for over 3 years, so you did a great job in persuading them that I had the 'WOW' factor and that they wouldn't be disappointed if they invited me to interview. Three interviews later and I have the job, and am very excited about starting next Monday. Overall you have been an enormous help in preparing me for each interview, and also helping me through salary and benefits negotiations, so thank you again.

I would like to thank Wendy so much for helping me to find my ideal job. Without her invaluable support and encouragement I don't think I would have sold myself as well as I was able to in the interview. She knew I was capable of the job and made sure that I was completely prepared for the interview and most importantly believe in myself. This is the most personable and successful recruitment agency I have dealt with and will definitely recommend them to friends in the future. I am a truly satisfied candidate.
