"We used Michael Page Human Resources to hire two senior HR professionals and our experience was very positive. The consultant grasped a strong understanding of our strategic business needs and effectively sourced candidates accordingly. The candidates were well managed and fully briefed on the interview process.
I have developed a strong working relationship with Michael Page Human Resources and appreciate their professional and pragmatic approach to recruitment."
We engaged Michael Page HR to manage a large number of new HR positions following a restructuring of the division. Although Michael Page were not on Sky's preferred supplier list at the time we believed that they could effectively fill our vacancies for us and we were delighted that this proved to be the case. Throughout our recruitment campaign we were thoroughly impressed with the professionalism they showed. Our account was managed by Basil Le Roux and he quickly grasped what we were looking for, not only in respect of the technical skill requirements but also the important behavioural and cultural fit aspects too, showing a real understanding of the people and business issues affecting our hiring decisions.
We were particularly impressed with their understanding of the particular nature of the media industry and how this would affect the recruitment process. They delivered within the agreed time frame, they kept us well informed of progress and generally presented a good supply of suitable candidates for shortlist. We have been especially impressed with the high level of service and communication that we have received. Basil and the team kept in touch with us throughout the process and followed up every time a candidate joined us. Basil was especially helpful at managing the delicate "offer" satge of the recruitment process. They also adapted well when the brief was modified or refined, showing a high level of flexibility in their approach. This has made a real difference to us as this allowed us to offer real business solutions to the recruiting managers rather than simply a transactional process. We would certainly recommend Michael Page HR to any prospective recruiters."
"Having been sceptical about Michael Page Human Resources' ability to partner us in our recruitment campaign I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism they showed. Turning around people's attitudes and preconceptions is difficult, but they worked systematically and have certainly changed my perception. They were first to react, and the team's obvious enthusiasm for what they do shines through. They quickly grasped the brief and had a real understanding of the people and business issues affecting our hiring decision. I was particularly impressed with their understanding of the 'down to earth' nature of our business and how this would affect the recruitment process. They were the only agency that delivered within the agreed time frame, they presented half a dozen first rate CVs within a couple of days compared to their competitors who missed the timelines, and delivered a small number of far less well matched candidates.
What I have been most impressed with is the high level of service and communication that we have received. The team kept in touch with our business even when we've not been recruiting. This has made a real difference to me as although it is a commercial relationship, the continued contact allows our established relationship to offer real business solutions rather than simply a transactional process.
Our consultant remained flexible and reacted to the marketplace, he also understood how we work and did us the courtesy of offering us further quality candidates in addition to the shortlist. Michael Page Human Resources' competitors are not currently in the same league, let alone the same game. I recommend them without hesitation."
"Michael Page Human Resources partnered us in recruiting a key HR appointment for our head office Retail team. This important hire required a high level of organisational and cultural understanding, both of which were provided by the consultant. This ensured that only suitable candidates were presented, thus aiding the decision making process. We were impressed that each candidate had been fully prepared and briefed prior to interview and the subsequent feedback was of a high standard. We found the consultant's understanding of both the HR market and our business requirements of the highest standard. I would recommend Michael Page Human Resources without hesitation."
"We use Michael Page Human Resources for key members of our HR and learning and development teams as well as for head office roles in Marketing and Commercial. We find the quality of the candidates outstanding, each of whom closely meet the brief. The consultant team professionally manages the selection process for us and we are able to make successful hires. I recommend Michael Page Human Resources without hesitation."
"We have built a successful working relationship with Michael Page Human Resources who we use to help us recruit key members of our HR team. They have developed a full appreciation of our business needs and they understand our culture. We find that candidates are carefully selected for their suitability and are well briefed and prepared for interviews."
"We use Michael Page Human Resources on an ongoing basis to assist in resourcing for a range of HR roles including store based Personnel Managers and Regional HR Managers. They work hard to understand our business needs and are able to provide consultative advice regarding the market. We are always kept up-to-date and informed of the progress of the campaigns and find the level of service to be highly professional."

"Michael Page Human Resources have assisted us in filling a number of HR vacancies over the last 12 months during a period of departmental growth. Working closely with our consultant we were able to shortlist suitable candidates who closely matched our requirements. The subsequent appointments have all been valuable additions to our team. Should we need to recruit again in the near future, the callibre of candidates and responsive service offerred by Michael Page Human Resources would make them our first choice."
"As some recruitment consultancies become more reliant on faceless technology, sometimes the recruitment process becomes nothing more than an exchange of e-mails. Having worked with a number of consultancies over the years I appreciate the quality of personal service that I receive from my Michael Page HR consultant. Through his regular phone calls and on site visits I believe he has developed a good understanding of the type of person we want to recruit, in turn I have built a high level of trust in his selection and welcome the fact that he remembers that recruitment is all about people."
"Michael Page Human Resources has recently helped SC Johnson fill two Human Resources Manager roles at our Frimley Site. Following a successful advertising campaign, managed by Michael Page, one role was filled very quickly, the other role took a little longer due to the unique blend of skills and experience required.
The Consultants at Michael Page handled all aspects of this recruitment campaign in a very professional and courteous manner. They have a good understanding of the market, took the time to understand my requirements and our company culture, and as a result, only provided high-calibre candidates for interview. Their service to SC Johnson was of an excellent standard, maintaining contact with both us and the candidates and managing the job offers successfully.
During my many years in recruitment, I have found that the Michael Page group of companies have provided good quality candidates for all our vacancies, and I regard them as my primary supplier."
