I have been working with Alex since August 2018, during this time Alex and I have built a strong working relationship, whereby Alex contacts myself with potential candidates to work in our children’s residential home and I keep Alex up to date with current vacancies. Alex and I both gave each other clear guidelines of our terms and conditions at the start of our working relationship, which has allowed us to work transparently with the same objectives. Alex has a good understanding of the type of candidates we are looking for, as opposed to some agencies I have worked with who send along candidates with limited information regarding the roles we have, this is very frustrating for the candidate, our boys and staff taking time out to interview. I find Alex very approachable, efficient, fair and reasonable. I have given Alex some feedback about one candidate in particular who chose not to disclose some information before interview, Alex totally understood where I was coming from and thanked me for giving the feedback, this has assured me that if anything like this happened again I could feel confident to speak to Alex. We have had several candidates via Vetro Recruitment, who are still with us and doing very well. When asked at interview if the agency have shared information regarding the role they apply for, the type of home we are running and an overview of our company objectives, they have all confirmed they have, which is reassuring for any employer to know that agents are sending suitable candidates, who they genuinely feel have the potential to be a good match. I find Alex patient, if I say I will get back to her, I will, therefore I am not inundated with calls and emails, likewise if there is a delay in my response Alex will be sure to give me a gentle nudge. I hope to continue working with Alex in the future and will be sure to inform her of any vacancies we have. Thanks for your support and professionalism Alex!
