We receive fantastic feedback from our candidates, as we always support them throughout the recruitment process, ensure that they will be a good culture-fit in their new workplace and find them positions with exciting brands that will progress their career.

Veronica Malley, Marketing Executive at i2i Events Group, was placed by Andrea Pell, who is now leading our new Media and Events Sales Division. Here Veronica explains what it was like to be a Handle candidate:

“For 5 years I have been working with recruitment agencies in the sales and marketing industries in both New York and London. Handle Recruitment is by far the best, most reliable and professional service I have come across. Since my first meeting with their Office Temps Division I was met with total transparency and excellent communication. They not only helped me find work but supported me throughout the process which was a huge reassurance especially when it came to the stresses of looking for a new role in a competitive field like the one I am in. 

Their concern was not to just fill an empty vacancy – Handle genuinely demonstrated that they cared about how I would fit within an office culture, how I would meet the requirements of the business and my ability to move forward with my career from the role I was placed in. Anyone who has experience with recruitment agencies knows that many times this kind of attention to detail is a rare quality and one that gives Handle great character.

Recently, Handle has placed me in a role that I feel suits my personality,  allows me to bring my previous work experience to the forefront and yet still gives me an opportunity to grow and move forward. The recruiters I worked with listened to my needs and showed they cared about me, the potential employee, just as much as they cared about their clients. Handle has been incredibly generous with their time, always at the other end of the phone and constantly making sure that I am happy.  I would recommend them to anyone who is serious about finding  a new role in marketing. Thank you.”
