Claudette has done a marvellous job in handling negotiation, keeping me abreast with any updates, gave me a courtesy calls throughout the daunting anxious interview process to affirm and inspire me. And importantly, centered my interest at heart as if it were her own. Thanks to Nadine and whole team as well. Every aspect of experience exceeded my expectations.
Sandy is always my go to recruiter for any position. She has grown with our business and understands the business a bit better with each role that we fulfill. It is always a pleasure working with Sandy as she keeps you updated along the process.
Great personality, friendly, motivational calming personality. Lisa-Mari goes out of her way to provide guidance with CV construction, interview preparation and provides constructive feedback post interview. Is actively involved and gives personal attention to her candidate.
Brigitte and Talent Experts was an amazing find. I am happy with the support and advice provided and am looking forward to a long relationship with her and the team!
Professional and efficient, Angelique demonstrated a thorough understanding of what I'm looking for on the market and provided personalized support throughout the recruitment process. Her communication was clear and timely, and she showed a genuine interest in finding the right fit for me. I would highly recommend her services to anyone seeking a recruitment agent.
We gave Angelique a requirement and she managed to find what we were looking for. We tried to use many other agencies but they did not seem to understand our needs and this is where Angelique excelled.
With all due reality and honesty, the process of the client hiring is so demanding, we have gone through two phases so far of the recruitment process. Luckily from the first telephonic conversation I had with Katharina, she literally explained the in depth process of the client. This made me comfortable and know actually what to expect. Katharina has been supportive in this regard to a point that even if the client doesn't take me up,I am more than willing for her to submit my cv to any other client. She's extremely professional.
It is an absolute please to work with Claudette as she understands our business and our needs!
Olivia, is a superstar she helped me and guided me from the first call every step of the way. keep the good work up!!
Sandy is a consummate professional. She is an expert in recruitment but more importantly she's agile in her approach. Taking into consideration the specific needs of the business, the market and the culture. It is rare to find a recruiter who delivers on all three of these aspects as consistently and professionally as she does. It's a pleasure working with her!
Roxanne is extremely thorough. She is very passionate about her job and made me feels very comfortable and not nervous ar all. I am excited to be walking this journey with her.
Sarah is very personable and easy to conversate with. Sarah makes the candidate feel well heard, understood and extends compassion and empathy. She is a jobseekers dream partner and makes sure you are well suited for your role, all while being thorough and personalised. What a stella job she does and more so human being! Talent Experts is lucky to have her!
Sandy Bremner! Where do I begin. Absolutely amazing recruiter. Sandy made the whole Recruitment process such an amazing experience. The continous support from advising you with great tips to always providing feedback. I have never come across a recruiter this passionate and enthusiastic. She is just that good!
We battled for months to find decent candidates for the sales role we had open. I contacted Angelique via her colleague, she explained the way she and the business operated. We discussed the role and our expectation, she completely understood what was needed. 2 candidates were put forward, both of which were extremely high quality, we hired one of them. (we would have hired the other candidate but the role and his goal were not the same). Angelique's service was excellent and my suggestion to anyone looking for people is go with a company that know what they are doing, Talent Experts.
