"...we have now managed to fill the position of Engineering Manager at EVC. I would like to thank you for your support. In particular I would like to recognise Colin Roope for his support/engagement/energy throughout this process. Colin took time to understand the role. He understood when best times to call were and for this reason worked well for both of us. As a result we received good quality CVs and honest feedback at all times.

"I have just accepted a great offer as Maintenance Manager for Heatrae Sadia - a successful manufacturer in Norwich. It has only been possible through the outstanding professional services offered by Michael Page but more specifically because of the knowledgeable, committed and dedicated assistance throughout the process from Matt Walker, one of your team members.
Matt ranks up there with the best because of his extraordinary combination of thorough preparation, a balanced client-candidate perspective, perseverance and personal humility. It has been a pleasure working with Matt and I will be more than happy to recommend Michael Page (and him) to any top professionals contemplating a career move."

"I used the recruitment services of Michael Page Engineering and Manufacturing whilst seeking a new position in Operations Management over the period Feb – May 2011.
I found their approach thorough and professional at all times and of the selection of the six agencies I mainly worked with at this time, Michael Page were one of only two to conduct a structured face-to-face interview with me. This was conducted at the Milton Keynes office by Kitty Lang who then arranged the interview which led to me securing my current position at De La Rue.
The level of consultancy provided by Kitty throughout the recruitment process was excellent. The background to the role and the organisation had been thoroughly researched and useful support was provided at preparation stage, including briefing notes relevant to the interview format.
Liaison with the recruiter was well co-ordinated both during interview and negotiation stages, with regular updates being provided throughout the process.
I have no doubt that the efforts of Michael page and Kitty Lang were a significant contributor to my success in securing this role."
Ben Casey - Operations Manager - De La Rue Security Print
"Prior to my introduction to Kitty, my experience of placing an application for a vacancy and the vetting process that goes with it was very limited.
The vacancy I had to fill and the type of candidate I was looking for was very specificand the importance of getting this right was very high. I was introduced to Kitty by my line manager and she explained very clearly and concisely the process that we would have to follow and what to expect. She was able to offer good advice and suggestions, and soon got a good understanding of the person that I was looking for.
After the initial meeting Kitty was straight on to the case and in a very short space of time had located a selection of candidates to consider...Kitty arranged all the interviews on the same day to minimise the disruption to my work week...The candidates selelcted for an interview, were all of high standard and justified to be selected...The whole expereince was far easier than I had anticipated and this is wholly down to Kitty's professionalism...I would not hesitate to contact Kitty for any future placements and would certainly recommend her to colleagues."

"I worked with Shirnette for many months in my search for new career opportunities. Shirnette kept in regular contact with me over this time and discussed many opportunities that she thought would interest me.
During a search for Stuart Turner Ltd. Shirnette quickly identified an opportunity for me and worked with all parties in a personable and professional manner to ensure the best result for all parties in my engagement. I found Shirnette to be trustworthy and reliable throughout the process."

“Michael Page were extremely professional and knowledgeable. I have been a contractor for many years and have dealt with a great many agencies. Although I was looking for a permanent position in this case, I feel the fact stands that I have never received a better level of service.”
Senior design engineer, PES
“I recently came in contact with Michael Page and Shirnette Golding when we were about to recruit an R&D Director. After having dealt with numerous recruitment agencies, I was slightly reluctant and did not really look forward to the interaction with an agency. However, Michael Page and particularly the contact with Shirnette was a true pleasure. Shirnette was engaging and very active without being pushy and she made a true effort in trying to understand our needs and what type of candidate that would fit our organisation. After having seen a number of candidates that Shirnette picked out, I can say that she assessed them perfectly, which meant that I could feel comfortable that if I gave a good enough brief, she would find a good match. We have now signed up a perfect candidate for the role and he will start in a week’s time. I rate Shirnette very highly and hope I have a chance to work with her again.”

“My consultant was fantastic. He was always in touch with me keeping me up to date (but not pestering). He was always easy to contact. He was even willing to meet up with me on a weekend, out of office hours. He negotiated a salary far higher than the one I’d hoped for. I was very happy with his service, the best consultant I’ve dealt with.”
Design engineer, Welding Units
“I really had the feeling that the consultant (David) has been working for me. Apart from providing a quality service, I believe David has been very good in defining the kind of person I am, which made the communication very much easy and straightforward.”

“I was very pleased with Michael Page’s work performance. They would let me know what progress was being made with my job application and if there was any news they would be in touch straight away, no time wasting, they got straight to the point, which was great as I was not waiting around wondering what is going on.
Michael Page would provide in-depth information about the company processing my application and were happy to answer any further questions. When it came to preparing myself for the interview they were very helpful, supportive and would boost my confidence.
I am grateful for Michael Page's help and would recommend them to anyone looking for their ideal job. They are helpful, polite and approach you in a very professional manner.
I know they will always be a phone call away and will always be willing to help and support me through my career.
I would just like to say a big thank you for all your help and support."
CAD co-ordinator, Tyco Fire Systems
“I must say while looking for work, Michael Page were the most professional recruitment agency that I dealt with. Their knowledge of the various industries and the roles applicable to me were very suitable. I can only say thanks for them getting in contact with me.”

“From the moment I was first contacted by Michael Brennan, I enjoyed a professional and courteous service. I was thoroughly briefed on the client and their requirements, which proved to be very accurate. I am impressed with their understanding of the requirements of the role and after their initial screening, their ability to match my salient skills, experience and interests against their brief. They identified not only my skills and experience, but also my fit within the culture of their client’s business. Their communication, feedback, support and advice through every stage played no small part in my securing this role. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael Brennan and Michael Page to prospective employers and candidates alike.”

“Finding a job is never an easy task. It is a journey from which you only know the starting point but not where you’ll end up or what you’ll find along your way. Because of that, it is very important to wisely choose your travel partners in order to increase the chances of succeeding. This becomes especially important when the journey destination is set abroad. And this is where the collaboration with Michael Page and in particular with Michael Brennan has made a difference to me. Nowadays there are many web based agencies with lots of job offers but unfortunately lacking of any human touch at all.
I think I’ve been very lucky to come across Michael Brennan: I was able to talk to him openly about what I was looking for (job type, preferable location, salary…), and based on this conversation I was proposed some other job vacancies in addition to the one I was originally applying for. During this period Michael has always closely followed up the process, which for me was very comfortable and encouraging.
It is also worth mentioning that while I was already involved in a selection process, I was suggested by the Michael Page team another very interesting job. That proved to me that they were really taking me seriously and most important that they really believed in me and in my potential.
After all this, my journey has finally come to an end. I’m very happy and feel very fortunate of having met this travel partner that has helped me find such an interesting and appealing destination.”
