What people say about us

Sarah

​"I haven recently started working with Madge to find a housing options role. Madge has worked very proactively and has been mindful of my own needs as well as the client’s criteria.

She has been supportive, considerate, patient and above all knowledgeable of both the client and job-seekers needs."

Tracy Roche

“In my role as Team Manager, I had no previous experience of recruiting agency staff, or liaising with a recruitment agency. Search responded our advert and provided robust and timely information.

Madge provided a seamless point of contact and I found her to be professional, responsive and friendly which ensured that the consideration of potential candidates was progressed and two agency staff members were recruited.”

​"Search is the best recruitment agency I have ever worked for. They responded timely to queries and are professional in their dealings. Thanks to Catherine and Mike who supported me during my employment with one of the local councils.

I implore newly qualified social workers or any other care professions to try them."

​"Madge contacted me about a role I'd applied for with St Helens Council and from the get-go she's been nothing but helpful, accommodating and pleasant to work with. She provided me with all the information I needed and I felt she was genuinely pleased for me when I got the role.

Having worked with several agencies in the past, it has been really refreshing to work with Madge and Search."
