"I came to Michael Page Retail on the recommendation of a colleague who had used them successfully in other parts of the country.
I had been in my previous role for ten years and was not clear on the exact job I was  looking for, but Michael Page Retail responded quickly and efficiently to my needs. I was presented with a range of opportunities and chose one to focus on. There were multiple stages to the selection process and I felt supported, prepared and informed every step of the way. This resulted in being made an offer which I accepted.
I was so impressed with the service I received that I now use Michael Page Retail to recruit for my current company and have sourced over a dozen employees from them. Michael Page Retail gives a good balance of a personal service but from a team of people, resulting in a professional, effective service that delivers the right match of candidates and good value to my business."

"Having worked with Michael Page Retail for almost a year now, they have provided nothing short of a professional service. The calibre of candidates sent through has been excellent which is down to the time taken by the consultants to understand the company and its culture, amongst other factors. Michael Page Retail is by far the best recruitment consultancy I have worked with in my time at IKEA."

"I have worked with Michael Page Retail for three years since I have recruited for O2. I have always found the consultants helpful and friendly. They are quick to return calls and prompt when booking candidates in for interview. I have been pleased with many of the candidates supplied by Michael Page Retail and I feel the consultants understand the type of people we look for when recruiting for different roles."
"Borders UK has had a working relationship with Michael Page Retail for a number of years now but have been working more closely with them over the last six months on both Head Office and retail roles. They have provided us with a service that is fast, efficient and knowledgeable and their consultants have really taken the time to get to know our business, therefore gaining a clear understanding of our requirements.
For us, this has meant that the time lag between registering our vacancy and receiving high calibre CV's has been greatly reduced. We would not hesitate in recommending the services of Michael Page Retail to any other business."

"I have worked with Michael Page Retail for a year and during that time I have received a very professional, efficient and proactive service. Through their commitment to me and Action For Employment, they have gained a strong understanding of our business needs from Welfare to Work through to our Healthcare division. I have employed numerous Operational Managers up to Director level who have added significant value and demonstrated commitment to our industry.  
One of the great things about Michael Page Retail and their consultants is that they have been able to use their experience within the retail industry to identify people who have the right transferable skills to move across to Action For Employment and become successful within the public service reform sector.  Action For Employment continues to use Michael Page Retail and would have no hesitation in recommending them."

"As soon as I started briefing Michael Page Retail on the retail management positions we had to fill I knew that not only did they understand the market very well but also recognised the pressure we were under. We needed someone who fitted the bill and we needed them straight away!
Michael Page Retail rose to the challenge and more – we asked for their help in filling a number of positions and they always delivered on brief and on time. Every candidate they put forward impressed us with their experience, their understanding of the role and their enthusiasm.
