It was my first experience with Northreach recruitment and proved to be a memorable one! Alwiya approached me one day over the phone. In a calm professional manner, she briefly explained a job opportunity to me and reason why I'd make a perfect fit. Driven by her natural enthusiasm and reassuring approach, I felt comfortable straight away. Usually, I tend to 'slam the phone' on any calls. But this was different, in a good way. Within hours a fews emails had gone back and forth. A job interview got arranged and no effort seemed too great. Even when small changes had to be made, she came up with quick solutions. It all paid off, as I got hired in the end! Wow. This all won't have been possible without Alwiya's limitless energy. I therefore give you 5 stars, as you're a true asset to the company.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude and appreciation to Northreach Recruitment. I am extremely pleased and thankful for all the support and assistance they provided me with regarding job opportunities. I am thrilled to share that I have been selected by SBI UK, and it wouldn't have been possible without the help of Alwiya Sheik, the recruitment officer who guided me every step of the way. I am truly grateful and indebted to the recruitment agency for their exceptional work. Being new to London, UK, they managed to help me secure this job within just 2 months. It's been an incredible journey, and I can't thank them enough. Warm regards, Ritika Santiago

I was looking for a sales related work for a very long time, going through some hard times and was not getting anywhere.. I saw this company and thought let me try this recruitment agency. I dealt with Dorian, at the beginning I was thinking it’s gonna be all the same like my previous experiences, but to my surprise, I was shocked how good and professional Dorian was. He really prepared me fully for the interviews which I was put forward to. I have just one thing to say: Dorian if you do see this, I just want to thank you for making my life easier, ur an amazing guy and thank you very much for your support!!

It was in this role that Jamie discovered his talent for active listening and went on to become one of the top sellers in his team. But after months of pounding the pavement, Jamie traded unsolicited knocking for a career in recruitment. Working with the Bio team, he discovered his unique pairing of natural sales skills with a scientific background is a winning combination.
