Client Testimonials & Candidate Testimonials

From beginning to end, the support and attentiveness provided, by James Garrod in particular, was exemplary and professional. A process which I had assumed would be complicated, long winded and stressful, actually proved to be seamless and straightforward thanks to regular contact with James, provision of useful interview guidance, employer information and general coaching, without which, the outcome may have been very different.

2018 Claire , Agricultural Assessor

"When headhunted, I’m sure many recruiters look for the quick win to fill a role; but not JP Trett. they want to ensure that the match between individual and role go hand in glove; suitability is essential. I was really impressed with the JP Trett experience. From initial talks through to interview, offer and post-start date support, each update was always encouraging and supportive. I’m really happy with my new role; the match-fit is perfect. It has been a life changer complete with relocation."

After regular contact James contacted me with a position in my proximity that fitted my experience. He gave good advice in writing my first CV in 15 years and fully briefing me on the role. Guidance through the whole process made you feel JP Trett were on your side while ensuring I was the right candidate for the role. After the second interview and less than a month after first making contact about the role, I was offered the role. I can whole hearty recommend JP Trett.

2017 - Tim , Service Manager, multi-branch premium brand machinery dealership

" This was the first time I had used a recruitment firm, it made the whole experience much less stressful! Meg was on hand all the time to answer any queries, and be a reassuring voice if I had concerns about anything. It was nice to have a point of contact other than that of the potential employer so that you felt you could ask all the questions you had no matter how silly they might have sounded! I was kept updated about the progress of my application. Thanks Meg and JP Trett."
