The busy fool weakness

  • I would highly recommend Joy at Collaborate. She has been incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the recruitment process. From helping me understand the skills that the employer was looking for, to practicing a zoom interview with me so I felt prepared, Joy went above and beyond to make sure I felt prepared and confident. Thank you Joy!
    Abi
  • Joy, at Collaborate Recruitment found my CV online and contacted me regarding an ideal job vacancy for me. I said let's do it, she got me an interview and now I start work this Monday. This was only possible thanks to Joy reading my CV and taking the time to recognise my skills and prove to the employer I was a fitting candidate. Joy was attentive throughout the process and more than happy to offer her wisdom to help guarantee the best outcome.
    Daniel
  • Joy has been the most exceptional recruiter I have ever been in contact with. She assisted me in a job opportunity in less than 2 weeks, the communication was effortless and the necessary information was provided to me in minutes! I have never felt as at ease as I have with Joy. She took the time to prepare me for my interview, which I had yet to experience with anyone else. Thank you Joy for helping me with my career, and making me feel excited again for a new career venture!
    Monique
  • Highly, highly recommend Joy to any prospective Client or candidate. She always gives of her best, works with great integrity and is very Professional. She will support you over and beyond what is required and will find the right position for you with the best deal. I would personally like to thank her for the support and advice she has given me since starting to work in the UK (2014) Anyone in the market, whether a client or candidate should look no further!
    Lynn
  • Joy has a genuinely friendly but professional approach. She gives plenty of information on the roles and companies she is recruiting for and she really listens to what candidates look for in their next move. She keeps in touch at every step of the recruitment so that you know what is happening behind the scenes, which is great. It builds trust and respect. I won't hesitate in recommending her to friends in need of a job.
    Marta
  • Following contact with Joy at Collaborate Recruitment in mid-February (having never dealt with Collaborate previously), I have found the whole experience excellent, culminating in me receiving an offer of employment and ultimately even starting my new role,  especially during these uncertain and challenging times! Joy was professional throughout the process, keeping me informed at every stage, interviews were arranged to accommodate travel times from both sides and detailed feedback given. I can’t recommend Joy and Collaborate Recruitment enough, whether that be to a prospective client or candidate.
    Alan
  • Joy has been amazing in helping me to secure this position. I would definitely recommend Collaborate Recruitment. Joy has acted as the go between me and the employer to answer any questions and put my mind at rest with any concerns. She has helped to ensure I was well prepared for interviews and the most valuable thing was that I actually got feedback!
    Lisa
  • Joy is very professional and takes an interest in her clients - I felt like she genuinely listened to what I wanted from a role and although she initiated the contact as she had identified a role matching all my job skills perfectly, after talking to me she was happy to speak to the prospective employer and act as an advocate on my behalf, which has enabled me to be successful in getting back into the skillset I wanted to work in. I am very happy with the service that she provided.
    Annelie
  • I have been fortunate enough to work with Joy on both sides of the recruitment fence. Regardless of whether I've been sourcing candidates or have been a candidate myself, I have found her to be respectful and approachable at all times. She listens to the brief and works hard to only put forward suitable recommendations. She keeps in touch without being too pushy and acts quickly on requests. I will certainly contact Joy in the future for any recruitment requirements.
    Sally
  • Joy is an amazing recruiter who doesn’t make you feel like a number but an individual. She is great at matching person not to just the job but the company culture as well. If I know anyone looking for new employment, she is one of the few people I recommend as a recruiter. Joy will always go that extra mile when it comes to finding new opportunities for her clients.
    Natasha
  • I couldn’t have asked any more from Joy throughout the entire recruitment process. From the initial submission of the lengthy job application through to perfect advice for the gruelling interview process to finally the aftercare after receiving the job offer. Joy is really professional but also so friendly, she is very thorough and the whole process was so efficient. She was always contactable and would go out of her way to offer help and advice at any stage. I would highly recommend Joy as a recruiter to anyone looking for a new role. I was actually recommended to Joy through a friend and within one day of contact she had a perfect job opportunity for me! Thank you so much for all your help.
    Louise
  • Joy found me a position which is perfect for me and kept me updated and in the loop constantly, throughout the recruitment process. Even afterwards, checks in to make sure things are as they should be! Five star service.
    George
  • It's been a pleasure working with Joy over the last few weeks; she's engaging, personable and professional. Joy kept me up to date regularly with emails and calls, gave me lots of advice and support as I searched for a new role, and I know I'll remember her advice in the future of my career, too. It's obvious Joy is very much a people person, as she is so easy to talk to and comfortable to be around. I know she genuinely had my interests at heart and was definitely not looking to make a fast and dirty placement without considering the suitability and potential longevity of the fit for both the candidate (me) and company. I really do hope to work with Joy in the future and will certainly be recommending her to any of my job-seeking friends and colleagues!
    Claudia
  • Joy is thorough, informative and ensures that as a candidate you have all of the information you need. This is so rare in today's recruitment market. An absolute pleasure to work with.
    Jenny
  • I can't thank Joy enough for making me feel confident and supported during my job search. From start to finish Joy was professional, kind and always had her finger on the pulse. I felt prepared going into interviews, well informed about options, and Joy was always available to answer my questions. I would recommend working with Joy for a really professional and caring approach to finding your next role.
    Courtney
  • Joy was nothing short of superb from the minute I met her to the moment she found me a great job! In the challenging world of recruitment, Joy was a breath of fresh air and I cannot recommend her highly enough!
    Dom
  • Joy has helped me recruit for a number of positions over the past few years. She takes time to listen and understand the needs of your business and delivers top quality candidates. She is incredibly honest and open, which is something I have struggled to find in other consultants, and I have no hesitation in recommending her services.
