Fashion Testimonials

Boyswear designer
“I telephoned Michael Page on Friday 15th November, asking if there were any positions available. There wasn’t anything suitable but they said they would be in touch as soon as something came up. On Monday 18th, they phoned and said that something perfect for me had come up and sent my CV to their client with my permission. I had an interview on Wednesday 20th, a trial morning on the 21st and got the job! Michael Page was really great in helping me find a new role and I can’t wait to start in the new year.”

"Michael Page ensured that my search for employment was a smooth, painless experience. Consultants take the time to understand your requirements, correctly matching your suitability to vacancies. They keep in regular contact throughout the process, provide honest and timely feedback after interviews and are always on hand to offer advice. I would strongly recommend Michael Page."

“Sara was exceptionally helpful and professional throughout my contact with her. Very happy and have passed Sara’s contact details onto several friends after the positive experience. Very highly recommended and if I come to move jobs in the future Sara will be the first person I contact in helping me make my next move.”

“I was really happy with the commitment shown by my consultant, Sara, who was in regular contact throughout my job search and within a week of working with her, she had arranged two interviews. Sara’s commitment to finding me my next role has been second to none and I can honestly say she is the best consultant I have had the pleasure of working with in my many years of working in this industry and look forward to working with her again if needed in the future.”

Children’s footwear designer
“Stuart is brilliant - he was on the same page as me, understood the type of role I was looking for and suggested similar companies to those I'd thought about, to start contacting. He is very clear with his communication and understands it isn't always possible to talk so found alternative methods or calls back when you’re not available or when it’s more convenient. Always kept me in the picture with my progress and feedback and generally touched based with me on a weekly time scale. A credit to Michael Page...if only all recruitment consultants (and agencies) were as good as this!”
Quality engineer
“Overall I found liaising with Stuart a very pleasant experience. He was very helpful, well mannered and clearly very professional.”
"I am registered with a number of recruitment agencies right now, but I found that Sara's professionalism, knowledge and friendliness far surpassed any of the other consultants I dealt with in other agencies. When Sara was on holiday she left me Sophie Bubb as a point of contact, who was well briefed about where I was in my search and was also extremely professional and helpful. Very impressed!"
Senior footwear designer
“I would just like to personally thank Liam Humphreys for the excellent level of service provided throughout the process that led to my eventual appointment with your client, Spicers. Liam was not only extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with; he also has an excellent knowledge of the QA industry which I have not found with other agencies. Liam is a credit to Michael Page.”
Head of quality assurance
"As I was recently made redundant, Michael Page Design & Development’s team offered me the support and help needed to get me back into work. They have a wide range of opportunities and kept me informed at all times. I have recommended Michael Page Design & Development to my colleagues and would definitely use them again when needed."
Garment technologist
TU Clothing
“I liked the buzzy 'international' corporate feel of the offices whilst not being made to feel like just another fashion designer on the books. I also didn't feel as though I was 'thrown at' any job around. I was armed with the right info and pointed at the most suitable client with instant results. Brilliant!”

“Michael Page took the time to understand our business and more importantly our culture. They now recruit for all of our positions and always put forward quality potential candidates. Working in this way means that despite being a growing company we don’t need a dedicated HR department, because with Michael Page we have a really efficient process for recruitment.”
Tom Dixon
"We tried the recruitment route for the first time last year with a selection of agencies around the country. Michael Page Design & Development stood out from the rest as being highly efficient and effective in carrying out the role.
The person Michael Page Design & Development helped us to recruit is now a fully fledged member of our growing team and I would not hesitate to use Michael Page Design & Development again."
Managing director
Buffalo Private Label
"Michael Page Design & Development has a very good understanding of the particular needs and requirements of our business. They had a prompt and realistic supply of strong candidates and their details and samples. The organisation of interviews was again prompt and well co-ordinated between all parties. In all a very professional and efficient service and I would have no hesitations in recommending Michael Page Design & Development."
Operation director
Leeann Fashions Ltd
“I have worked with Sophie Bubb, at Michael Page, in recruiting a head of production role in the summer of 2010. 
Sophie understood the brief very clearly and presented a shortlist of candidates that were appropriate for the role. All candidates had relevant and strong experience, from within the retail industry, and within the agreed brief. A very strong candidate was shortlisted for an offer, although an internal candidate applied for the role at a late stage and the job was offered to them.
Sophie was efficient and resilient in recruiting for the role and worked very closely with me to understand the business culture and needs, in order to ensure that the right list of candidates was put together. I was very pleased with the service and support provided.”
