Katy recruited a number of employees for me and it has always been a joy to work with her. She's enthusiastic about our business and culture and this really comes across in how she explains our organisation and roles to candidates and as a result, they always come well prepared for interviews. She is organised, helpful with salary and general job market information and I would highly recommend her as a recruitment professional.
Donna has provided an outstanding recruitment service. She is flexible, determined, approachable, friendly, professional and addresses all issues. Once appointed to our site it didn't take her long to understand the skills and demands we required. Donna proactively provides workers of the right calibre and we've never had any issues contacting Donna either by phone or email. I would recommend Donna and gap professional to anyone.

Craig shows commitment and it’s clear from the feedback provided by candidates that he’s a positive advocate for our business and brand. His support has been invaluable and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to any business seeking a dedicated recruiter.
All three candidates gap professional put forward to us were very strong and I'm confident that our new team in Nottingham will be needing you to find more people in the not too distant future! Once again, I congratulate you on the calibre of people you introduced to our business and the level of service you provided.
gap professional has been a great resourcing partner to work with for our major hourly recruitment drive. We showed them around the site at the start of the process, enabling them to really understand the quality of individual we look for and the passion we have for our products - right to the point of our coined term ‘it’s more than a job’. The team have been really supportive and worked with us to provide a structured plan that has delivered what we are looking for. This has enabled us to start our peak production on time, creating a whole new shift within our facility. The candidates provided have been of a really good calibre, bringing different experiences and skillsets to our team. The process has been slick from the initial conversation to converting interviews, and sometimes offers took less than 24 hours. The team are approachable and always available when we need them to recruit candidates for tailored roles at different times. We’ve had some fantastic people join our team who are making a tangible difference already. As a small management team onsite, sourcing the number and calibre of individuals on our own would just not have been feasible.
