I came across Employment Specialists via Kaley Hopkins on LinkedIn. She was very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. Listening carefully to my needs and understanding my work situation at the time. She was very assertive and arranged quite a few interviews with me not long after we initially got in contact. She did an amazing job with interview prep and keeping my nerves at bay, and I'm definitely going to use those skills in future. The difference with Kaley and Employment Specialists, is that they actually cared about what I wanted and the specific type of insurance I wanted to work in.

Achieved his first Insurance position with ESL

Employment Specialists are very unique in their approach to recruitment and their service is far superior to other agencies. In my experience they are highly efficient and treat the candidate with utmost respect.
They were genuinely interested in me as an individual and worked hard to place me in the right role. They kept me informed at every stage and were always available to talk to in order to help me reach the right decision. Thank you for everything.

Secured his latest position with Employment Specialists Ltd

I have used Employment Specialists Ltd twice over a 5 year period. Both times they have found me great positions at reputable insurance companies. They took the time to find out exactly what I was looking for in a job and what skills I had that could be applied to the available positions. They even assisted me in updating my CV in order to convey myself better to potential employers. The team were very quick to obtain relevant interviews and kept me up to date with any feedback they received.

Mohammed Sabir Miah

Obtained next great Sales role

Having worked with Employment Specialists Ltd twice, I would highly recommend them. On both occasions they have successfully found me employment. The most recent role was not an obvious match on paper and I have no doubt that they played a massive part in securing me this opportunity. I have always found them highly professional and supportive during the process, particularly with preparation for interview. Should the need arise again, they will be my first call.

Damien Algar

Achieved promotion and career change

I was put in contact with Employment Specialists Ltd by a family member and received a call very promptly from Claire. I couldn't be more happy with the service she and her colleagues provided me. As soon as I was unsuccessful for one job, she straight away found another, and a week after that I was accepted into the next job! I've told all my friends about Employment Specialists and would recommend them to anyone!

Jonathan Andrews

Secured his first role in Insurance

I approached Employment Specialists four years ago and they have assisted me in gaining two separate positions within the insurance industry. I would like to especially mention Kaley Hopkins who has been extremely helpful on every occasion. I would most definitely recommend Employment Specialists and will of course use them again in the future if necessary.
