What our candidates say

Placed as Regional Sales Manager – Northern England Ex-Army, Sergeant After serving for 10 years in the Military I found myself looking at what I wanted to do post service. My first job outside of the Army was a secondment to a Sales Manager role which ended in December 2016. In January of this year (2017) I applied for a position as Regional Sales Manager. At this point I came into contact with Paul Lewis.

From the very first conversation with Paul and based on how he explained the opportunity and prospective employers details, I felt at ease and reassured that I would be very well suited to this position. Paul explained the application process in detail, ensuring that I fully understood what was expected of me and the timescales his client was working to. Part of the process included a Psychometric Test, which I have never completed before, but with Paul's support it was very straightforward. Throughout the first and second interview

Paul was keeping in contact with me, making sure I was prepared by working through typical interview techniques and questions with me, to make sure I was focused on the task at hand. He helped me research the company and their products, giving me the head start against any other candidates that had maybe applied directly. Once I had attended the second interview, which I felt went very well, I was offered the role and gladly accepted. I must pay the highest compliment to Paul Lewis for his assistance throughout the application process and I believe it would be difficult to find a better service and assistance from any other agency or recruiter. Thank you.
