Some of our candidate testimonials...
There is nothing better than seeing a candidate happy because we have found them the job of their dreams.
It's always great to hear from our candidates and get feedback about their experience of working with Carousel. Here is just a selection of candidate feedback.
Having been with Carousel Consultancy for over more than 8 years now, I can truly say that it has been the best agency I have ever worked for. Over the years I have been looked after by Lea Painter, who on a personal level is kind, thoughtful, and always going out of her way to help people. Throughout the years, Lea has provided me with consistent guidance and honesty about the roles I applied for. Lea always found a way of choosing the right company and role for me, which made me trust her decision every time. I believe in all my years I have not had one company or role I did not like. Although Lea’s choices were spot on, there were times where I was hesitant about a role, but I never felt pressured to accept the interview or job. Most of my work consisted of temporary assignments both long and short term, now Lea has found me the perfect role in a wonderful company that I work for full time.
If you are looking for an agency that truly care about you, then this is the one!
This is my last week with Carousel and I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for your assistance over these past few years.
You always reached out to me before I was due back, set me up with some great bookings and even guided me on where to look for digital marketing jobs when I decided that that’s where I wanted to focus.
Thank you to all the team especially Jen for her patience when my timesheets were late.
This isn’t goodbye though (because you never know), but just a farewell for now…
The support at Carousel is so genuine, supportive and hardworking it really is like they’re your colleagues.
The level of communication, professionalism and structure they have in place is second to none.
They strive to get you the best opportunities in great places and are always in contact to ensure your wellbeing. The role they got me turned out to be a long placement which lead to me being taken on permanently and I couldn’t be happier.
I really enjoyed temping for Carousel and I highly recommend their agency as one of the best.
Dawn recently helped me through the process of applying for a receptionist/administrator role, and I just wanted to say how amazing she was.
Dawn consistently kept me informed throughout the entire process, organised the interview with minimal fuss and was very efficient. Unlike other recruiters I have used in the past, she gave the whole experience a personal touch which is quite rare to find in the fast paced, pressured environment of recruitment.
She was honest with me in regards to the company and what to expect which I really appreciated. Dawn ended up actually getting me a higher salary than I had asked for, which was also a great bonus .
I am coming to the end of my first week in this role and so far it’s been fantastic!
Highly recommend this company for anyone looking for the perfect job!
I met Carole and the team after weeks of applying for hundreds of jobs and getting no where. Even though I had the correct skill set for the jobs I was applying for, I wasn’t presenting myself in most efficient way. Carole did this for me, and was able to match me to opportunities I was interested in within a matter of days with amazing companies. In addition to this they went above and beyond in their duties, helped me build my confidence, to know my potential and ensured that I was perfectly suited for every role I was being put forward for.
Carousel works for the candidate as much as the companies they recruit for and, if like myself, you find yourself at a dead end in your job search this team will get you where you need to be! Thanks again to Carole and Team.
I just wanted to write and thank you so much for all the effort you have put into helping me throughout this process. It’s been great to speak with a consultant who understands her candidates so well, and goes above and beyond with communication. You have been a star.
It was truly a pleasure connecting with you this morning.
The world needs more Alysons! Energetic and truthful. That’s how you come across.
Absolutely brilliant! Carole was so helpful in preparing me for my interviews and making sure the role was well suited for me. Could not recommend enough. Very good at keeping in contact and making it super personal and individual to me. Thank you very much.
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you, Liz, for your professionalism and approachability. Over the last few months I have had dealings with multiple recruitment agencies, and your service has by far excelled that of anyone else I have worked with. It is understandable in the area of recruitment that targets matter and drive the work, however, working with you never made me feel like a mere “number”. There was a consistent level of communication that made me feel involved and informed at all stages of the process, even to inform me there had been no progress whilst I had been waiting a long time. Additionally, any correspondence from yourself was always extremely friendly and warming, and really excelled your client service and thus satisfaction.Overall, I am extremely happy with the service you have provided (and the job offer is just an added bonus). Following my other experiences, this has really stood out as positive.
Have worked with previous recruitment consultants (names deleted) and they have all been useless. Max Armitage, at Carousel, came across my details online and rang me as I’ve desperately been looking for a new career for the past 4-5 months as I’ve been extremely unhappy in my current position. Within 3 weeks Max managed to change my life round and got me a job, not just any job, a job that I actually loved and never thought I’d get. Can’t thank him enough for everything he’s done! If you’re in a similar situation PLEASE give them a go, you have nothing to lose, can’t fault them in any way!
Profesional service from Carousel Consultancy. Gabi to whom I mostly communicated was amazing; she is very friendly, helpful and very responsive. She helped me all along the recruitment process and always responded to my queries very quickly. Very happy and grateful for your support.
Great professional friendly service, they are the best recruiters I’ve ever dealt with. They landed my dream job and negotiated a great package to start with in one month. This was my first time using a boutique agency, and I would highly reccomend to anyone.
Gabi contacted me out of the blue, when I was at a very low ebb, and put me forward for a post, for which I was unsuccessful. However due partly to her persistence, I was subsequently offered another position with the same firm. This has worked out so well, that I now look forward to going to work, for the first time in years. Through out she was very helpful, understanding and supportive.
Thanks to all at Carousel for finding me such a fabulous new job! I’d not come across the agency before, but once I replied to an advert, the service was second to none. Gabi was amazing, always quick to respond and so positive that she could find the perfect role. Both companies I had interviews with could have been “the one”, so Gabi and the team obviously knew their clients well both from hirer and job seeker’s point of view.
I can not recommend them highly enough. After 10 days in my new job, I already feel settled and can see the difference I am making, so have a happy boss too! Thanks again to everyone at Carousel.
Great and very supportive team, very straightforward application, Gabi in the Norfolk branch secured my new position in couple of days. Highly recommended!
I have worked with Carousel for just under 3 years and in that time I have always found them very helpful. I would especially like to thank Lea and Jen, they both looked after me very well and were always helpful with any queries I had. They made the transition into the agency work very easy and stress free. I would be happy to recommend Carousel and I would definitely work with them again.
Supportive, motivating and exceptional service.
Carousel Consultancy have been amazing. They prepared me for the interview, they were patient and kept in constant contact. Liz and her team make you feel like an individual and part of the Carousel family and not just another number on their books. I would like to say a big thank you to Liz, Dawn and Jen who helped me, answered all my questions and were there to make things easier.
Carousel has restored my trust in recruitment agency and I speak highly of them, would recommend them to everyone.
Gabi contacted me about a Design Draughtsman role in Norwich in an architectural metalwork firm. The position was right up my street and I felt confident applying for it.
After a very positive interview I was offered the position on a trial basis through Carousel and, after 16 weeks, I have now been offered a permanent position.
All the staff I have had contact with at Carousel have been most friendly and so helpful. Should I ever need to approach an agency again in the future, Carousel Consultancy will definitely be my first choice port of call.
Thank you to all for what you have done for me in getting me back to work.
On responding to a role advertised through Carousel I had the absolute pleasure of talking to Emma and her team. I found them very professional but with a deep personal understanding and we were able to build a rapport quickly. I was placed in a temp to perm role within a few days and haven’t looked back. I received all of the contract swiftly and during my placement they have kept in touch regularly, I really couldn’t have asked for more.
Sarah helped me a lot during my job search. Very informative, helpful and honest. She made everything so much easier for me and helped me when I had questions or needed any advice. Thank you for helping me secure a job!
Thank you to Sarah who tried so hard to help me find a job I had qualifications in. I am now in an amazing firm and I have started my career! Thank you for not giving up on me, and helping me every step of the way!
I was contacted by Gabi from Carousel Consultancy after replying to a job advert online. Gabi was very energetic and interested in my CV, my skills, my experience and what I was looking for in a new job. We also talked about the job offer, the location and what type of work environment I should expect. I really liked Gabi´s description and a 1st interview was scheduled. I was very well informed of all the steps that were being done, what to expect from the interview and what they wanted me to show them.
Everything went smoothly and I was invited to a 2nd interview where the Managing Director offered me the position.
All the process was really easy and I got plenty of phone calls to keep me updated and all the relevant information was then sent to me via email.
Gabi is an excellent professional from my experience. Very easy to deal with, always in a very good mood and always made sure I was informed and happy to proceed to the next step.
I don’t intend on looking for a new job in the near future but I would contact Carousel again if I suddenly needed a better position.
Thank you Gabi and Carousel.
I found you more helpful and informative than other recruitment companies from start to finish.
I would recommend your agency to anyone, including companies wishing to advertise for staff, as I feel you look honestly and fairly to find the right person for the right position and company.
Thank you for all your help and assistance.
Sarah has been one of the best and most professional recruitment consultants I’ve worked with during my job search. Throughout the recruitment process she has been informative, supportive and honest, providing really good advice and support along the way. Her regular communication was great too.
I would like to thank Dawn Hamilton for the way she responded to my initial email, calling me in and finding me a job which she knew that I could do. It was very reassuring to finally meet a consultant who genuinely took an interest in my needs and interests about what kind of role I am looking for.
It was great to work with Sarah Ross who led me through my interview process confidently and successfully. I would highly recommend Carousel Consultancy to anyone who is looking for the next step in their career.
The personal care and attention I received from Carole and her colleagues at Carousel made the recruitment process seamless. Their depth of knowledge enabled me to explore and build a picture of the type of job I really wanted – it certainly isn’t a company that believes one size fits all. Thank you for making me feel like a ‘diamond’.
Carousel really takes the time to get to know you and dig down to find what you are looking for. Then work hard to find you a position that works for both you and the client. Excellent communication skills and a valuable asset to have in your court. A real star!
Having registered with many recruitment agencies when I first moved to London, Carousel stood out as by far the most helpful and honest. Carole was so conscientious and took time to get to know me as an individual before placing me in a temporary role within days of my initial interview. The role has since been made permanent and I have recently been offered a promotion. I would recommend Carousel to anyone.
Having worked in London for the past 6 years, I can honestly say that Carousel Consultancy is by far the best consultancy service I have experienced to date. The staff are warm and welcoming from the moment you first meet them and their number one aim is to make sure you get the job that you not only deserve but the one that you actually want. I never felt pressurised or inclined to attend an interview or accept a job offer if I didn’t want to. The pleasure of being involved with Carousel Consultancy is that it’s your decision as to what you do and that’s exactly how it should be. Carousel Consultancy helped me find the best job of my career to date and I’m hugely grateful for all their help and support.
Sarah, I would like to thank you so much for helping me find a role, your service has been fantastic from the first point of contact to the very end of completing a job role.
Once again, I can’t thank you enough for your hard work.
Thank you very much for helping me find a job. I really appreciate all your help.
I can’t even tell you how totally completely over the top delighted I am with you, your service, your staff and the match you have made for me with my new job.
I’m so grateful and this is absolutely the best thing to happen to me ever.
Please accept my sincere thanks for your own and your team’s efforts on my behalf, I am so very very grateful!
