I would highly recommend Nicola at FS1 Recruitment to assist anyone searching for a job. The contact I received from Nicola was excellent. During the whole process, the response was prompt, professional and above all, personal. Conversation was continuous and informative throughout so I always knew the status of my application and the approach has always been very friendly, offering me as much support as I wished both before and after securing a job. If you want to work with someone who is going to make your application feel significant, Nicola at FS1 will do that.

Nicola at FS1 is amazing! Not only for finding the correct match of work but for sound advice and valued knowledge too. It's been a pleasure to have her only a phone call away for updates and general knowledge of interview techniques and professional experience. Being made redundant is a hard situation to be placed in, but I soon found myself with an opportunity which has been a fantastic fit for my skill set, and my personality too. I wholeheartedly thank you and FS1 for giving me a chance to start a new chapter in my career.

Nicola and the FS1 Recruitment team have been excellent with supporting and understanding our business needs. The speediness of search, filter and the recommending of potential candidates is to be applauded. Also, the ability to source a strong field for a ‘hard to fill’ position was terrific. We would certainly endorse Nicola and the FS1 team to other companies. I wish Nicola and FS1 all the best.

I have worked with Carmen recruiting for specialist roles as part of my work. I found her to be professional, thorough and competent, always prompt with her responses and with a clear sense of the requirements. I am happy to recommend her.

I just wanted to congratulate Adele firstly on the vision and professionalism of FS1 – it’s clear that she has built a thoroughly meaningful consultancy and I tip my hat to her for her achievements. Secondly, I also wanted to congratulate Adele for appointing, nurturing and recognising the talents of Lauren. Lauren is a great asset for the business, she is very professional, clearly very good at what she does and in my view an excellent ambassador for FS1. I enjoyed my experience as a result of her skill, human approach and her emotional intelligence in particular. I’m really looking forward to working together in partnership to maximise my potential candidacy with the FS1 client portfolio.

Kayley is truly a diamond in the rough. She is the one and only recruiter I have ever come across who listened to me and made the effort to get to know me. Her support and professional execution has been a smooth and a great experience!

Throughout the whole hiring process Kayley was very supportive and proactive. Within two weeks of speaking with her I'd been placed at a company with an outstanding reputation. I'd highly recommend getting in contact; she made what can be a very clinical process feel easy and very personal.

Due to my amazing experience with Kayley, I have recommended colleagues and friends to reach out to her so she can work her magic!

I cannot recommend Nicola and FS1 Recruitment enough for the professional and personal service they offered. Nicola provided lots of information on the employer and the role which was much better than the usual vague job spec provided by other agencies. Throughout the process the level and quality of communication was great and the person focus was really refreshing. A great experience all round!

We engaged with FS1 in early 2013 after we had exhausted our usual channels in recruiting within our corporate communications department for a senior role. FS1 stepped up to the mark, offering an unrivalled and personable recruitment process.

FS1 strive to deliver a first class service. They have unparalleled relationships with top talent in the market, ensuring that they were able to introduce us to the high calibre of candidates we were seeking. We have been impressed with the efficiency of their service and of their commitment to applicants and us. Further to this, they take time to comprehensively understand our brief, and work with us as a partner to deliver exceptional results.
We are committed to working with agencies such as FS1 who offer both their clients and candidates an exemplary level of service, working with both of our brands.

FS1 have now become our preferred supplier for Corporate Communications after placing two four key members of staff successfully within the team.

I first engaged with FS1 in September 2014 and I’ve never looked back. The team’s hard working attitude and attention to detail is second to none; they’ve worked tirelessly to become a well trusted and valued recruitment partner to me and my company, successfully and diligently recruiting a number of permanent and freelance professionals for my onsite studio team. An excellent communicator and listener, Nicola (my contact) ensures she understands our requirements to the last letter before going out to her extensive network of contacts to promote our brand. She always makes herself available to support us when we need it most and comes highly recommended as a well-rounded recruitment professional, able to offer an unparalleled service.

An agency’s true colours always shine when things go wrong! FS1 performed superbly when our recent candidate didn’t work out. Without hesitation the team was back on the job and delivered a timely result. This attitude is rare and exceptionally precious and not one to be sniffed at! A good job by the team, supporting business when they need it most. Thanks for sorting to the final conclusion.

Thank you very much Adele. I really appreciate your powers of perception and ability to match so well - the qualities which makes a recruitment consultant stand out from the rest!
I will certainly let you know if anything changes but I am hoping that the next six months will go well.

As the Account Director of a busy studio based within a corporate client's offices, it is vital that I attract people to the team who not only have the right skill set / experience but also have the right 'soft skills' and attitude to flourish in this difficult environment. When I initially spoke to Adele on the telephone I gave her a brief overview of the role and the type of person that I was looking for and set up a meeting to hold a face-to-face discussion.

Adele came to the meeting with the CV's of a range of carefully selected candidates that were on her books that she felt might be appropriate so that we could look at them in detail during the meeting in order to further hone her understanding of my requirements. In fact the majority of the CV's that she brought with her were on track for what I was looking for. Not only did this speed up the process as we were able to set up some interviews almost immediately, but it also demonstrated that Adele had really got under the skin of the brief during our initial conversation. Having met the candidates at interview her assessment of them all was accurate showing that she had interviewed all of the candidates with care prior to introducing them to me.

As someone who is interviewing, I don't want to see hundreds of candidates I just want to see the 'right candidates' and that is exactly what Adele achieved. Her levels of customer contact was always very good with just the right number of update calls. I would thoroughly recommend FS1 as a recruitment agency for any marketing / sales environment.
