Testimonials

"Johanna is my 'go to' for any job search. I have signed up with multiple agencies and out of everyone it was Johanna who listened, engaged and encouraged. She gave me the confidence to go to interviews which ordinarily I would have discounted and ironically were the jobs I ended up taking. She gently pushes you to go out of your comfort zone and explore other options, which for me was incredibly valuable and her endless patience is testament to this. I never hesitate to recommend her to friends." 

Camilla, Candidate 

"I am both a candidate and client for Joyce Guiness, and I can honestly say they are my first point of call when I am job hunting or when I need to recruit support staff. I have been looked after by Johanna but despite not having met the whole team, whomever I speak to on the phone, they seem to have a good understanding of who I am and what I need. I am confident they have my requirements in hand, and will be in touch even if it’s just to say that they’re still thinking of me.  I don’t have to chase.  Ever since finding me a job 4 years ago, I have no hesitations when recommended them to all my job-seeking friends, as well as appointing them to recruit at each new business I have worked for."

Hannah Zygadlo, Brunswick Group

"I have finally got my dream job, thanks to the team at Joyce Guiness. In particular, Lucy, who completely understood me, what I was looking for and has matched me perfectly to the most incredible boss and company." 

Nicky, Candidate 

“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed having one of your candidates working with us last week. She was so efficient and made, what could’ve been a pretty stressful week, a whole lot easier. Was so nice knowing that I could just leave her to it and she just got on with everything we had asked her to do. A star!”

“Clare and all the team at Joyce Guiness are extremely friendly! Clare took the time to really get to know me as a candidate and understand exactly what I was looking for in my next job. She was incredibly honest which is what I look for in a recruitment consultant and found me a job really quickly. She still checks in to see that I am happy with my role!” 

Candidate

“I have now worked with Clare on two occasions to help find the very best candidates for my company and yet again she and the team at Joyce Guinness have surpassed my expectations. Clare has taken a great deal of time to understand not only the job roles on offer but importantly our company ethos, to ensure that each individual put forward for the interview will 'fit in' as well as being able, comprehensively, to do the job. This care and attention to detail is rare to find today and I would wholeheartedly encourage companies looking to recruit new staff to get in touch with her. Thank you once again Clare and rest assured I will be in touch again in the future.”

“Jessie is quite simply my saviour and I cannot be more grateful to her. My first meet with Jessie and the Joyce Guiness team felt far superior as I knew she was there to really help me. The team knew who I was and were very welcoming so I felt they were behind my search for a job/career immediately.  I am now almost 6 months down the line in a role I genuinely believe was meant to be for me. Without Jessie's determination, belief, expertise and support this never would have happened. I am so grateful and I could not speak higher of her.” 

K. Field, Candidate

I cannot thank Joyce Guiness enough for their diligent and thoughtful approach to seeking work on my behalf.During my various temporary assignments, I can honestly say I felt part of the JG family & working with consultants who look after the interests of client and candidate alike.  Joyce Guiness are a small tightly knit team, who whilst being results orientated, really enjoy what they do and care about their candidates, taking time to get to know them very well due to their personable, genuine and intuitive  manner.

Roseanna Eisdell, Candidate

We were impressed with the list of candidates provided by Joyce Guiness, they were all excellent and worthy of serious consideration. There is no doubt that this was down to your comprehensive understanding of our given brief and this in turn saved a lot of time. The whole process was smoothly handled, with good detail on each prospective candidate and the post interview follow-ups were always timely and informative.

Neil Moore, Burgess

The team at JG really take the time to get under the skin of an organisation and understand their culture – which means the candidates they send through are so often spot on. It’s always a pleasure to work with them andI look forward to meeting the excellent candidates that they send through.

Joyce Guiness realise that it’s not just about how an applicant looks on paper – their skills set, but also whether or not they will fit in with our team and their approach – their mindset.

MD, Award Winning PR Company

Thank you so much for helping me find my first job! My first week has gone really well, I am really enjoying myself and everyone is so lovely! I am so pleased that I found a job through you as my aunt used to work for Joyce Guiness back in the 70’s for Joyce herself!

Camilla Sandes, Candidate

Joyce Guiness are an absolute pleasure to work with. Everyone is extremely professional whilst ensuring the recruitment process is fun, they are always available to speak to and will go the extra mile to ensure things run smoothly. Finding the right candidates can be tough for consultants but I always find JG have not only taken on board their clients’ needs but also ensure the candidates really want the role before putting them forward. I would highly recommend JG to any employer who is looking for a higher class of candidate and a smooth recruitment process.

I am really enjoying my new role, the team and the atmosphere is exactly what I wanted so thank you so much for putting me forward and recommending me for the role in the first place!
