Case studies

I don't have enough words to express how impressed I have been with Jamil.

Jamil's tenacity, support and encouragement has not only boosted my confidence but also resulted in me obtaining my dream job, even though the odds were stacked against me!

I particularly appreciated Jamil's expertise with regard to interview preparation. As a 'mature' candidate I honestly thought I would not need any pre- interview assistance! I could not have been more wrong. Jamil helped me to phrase my answers in a more appropriate manner and as a result I firmly believe this is why I secured this role.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Jamil. Supervising Social Worker Children’s Services, Lancashire

Mark took the time to get to know me and my requirements and has helped me secure a fantastic work placement with a great package. Taking the time to get to know both candidate and client is invaluable. I am now hoping to use Mark to find a suitable deputy Manager for my brand new service Registered Manager Children’s Home, Dorset

What I remember about Helen is the emotional support she offers clients. Social work is a very stressful profession but having Helen as my consultant helps me to feel reassured. In the world of social work your team manager makes a big difference between loving your job or feeling like giving up.

In the same way, having the right consultant who possesses the right attitude and mindset gives you the stamina and determination to keep going even when you feel like giving up or when you’ve had a bad day.

Additionally, I noticed that Helen has a more positive attitude compared to other consultants (from other recruitment agencies) in that, when she asks about my welfare it is genuine; she really does care about her clients whereas, in my experience with other agencies, I have felt like the voice on the other end of the phone is out for themselves and I am left feeling like a commodity.

Helen is a professional with class and integrity; a relationship-based consultant who values her clients. She’s amazing! Social Worker Children’s Services, London

As an Adult Social Care team manager, I deal with many, many agencies. I can be impatient with them and sometimes irritated. However, I have a lot of time for Emily Game.

I have actually advised friends to use Charles Hunter Associates when looking for a new job. Certainly, Tom (McKenna) found my first senior position well over a year ago which has done my career wonders and wherein I learned a great deal.

Charles Hunter Associates has exceeded my expectations in comparison to other agencies. I admired their (my consultant's) professionalism; meticulousness and continuous telephonic follow up throughout the whole recruiting process. My consultant was really awesome and a big thumbs up to him. I will most definitely recommend Charles Hunter Associates to colleagues.

Mark Beaver is an incredible recruiter, diligent, committed and consummate professional, He knows his field, competitor, providers and I would not hesitate to recommend him to colleagues or other providers.

I have been very impressed working alongside Mark, where other competitors have just thrown the towel in on difficult to fill vacancies, he has been continued to give a 5-star service, despite setbacks. Operations Director Learning Disabilities Services, Dorset

Tom is awesome; always very upbeat, happy, funny and really kind. I was not in a great place, having lost all my confidence and faith in myself, Tom was really kind and supportive, I wondered a couple of times, as I "messed up yet another interview", whether I would be politely dropped, but I wasn't and Tom gave me the right amount of support, balanced with a firm push to motivate myself and not just give up.

I have to say a massive thank you, as Tom actually gave me the confidence to 'pull myself together' and I was able to use this in other areas of my life as well. I was certainly not easy to work with, with my phone breaking and being in quite a fragile place personally, I was often hard to get hold. I don't normally recommend agencies but I will 100% be doing it this time, because I was treated like a person, and valued... I didn't just get a job, I got my confidence back! Thank you! Supervising Social Worker Independent Fostering, Gloucestershire

I am so grateful to have worked with Tom McKenna as my agent, wow he had so much faith in me from the day we first had our telephone conversation in April 2016, he is an amazing person and very patient and committed to help. He was there for me and still is to date. He made things easier and his support is just out of this world. He actually made me decide to relocate all the way from Africa as I was not sure I could do it.

Thanks Charles Hunter Associates for investing in such a great and wonderful person as Tom. Thanks to you all, I believe coming to England is life changing for me and my family. I will gladly refer more people to you. Thanks Tom you are a star! Social Worker Children’s Services, Home Counties (International relocation from South Africa)
