Candidate's testimonials

I wanted to send you a huge thank you for putting me in touch with Pollen. You were absolutely right, they have been nothing short of fantastic since you introduced us back in September and I’m very pleased to say they have helped me secure a role I’m really excited about! Without them, god knows where I could have ended up! I’ll surely be passing on the baton of recommendation should anyone else come my way looking for a new role.

Thanks for sharing the Singapore opportunity and for keeping me in mind. I must say, you continue to find extremely exciting opportunities and your briefings and background information are unequalled.

My experience with Pollen has been some of the best! I plan to recommend you personally to any colleague looking for a new role. It has been truly wonderful working with you.

You took the time to understand me and my wants and needs for my next position and provided a personal service. You only put me forward for positions that were right for me rather than a blanket approach used my most recruiters. Overall I have found you to be very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. I secured a great new position through your guidance and contacts in the industry.

You have placed me in my last two roles. On both occasions, you have taken the time to help me clarify not only the short-term goals that have prompted my job search, but also my longer-term career aspirations, and you have had a very keen eye for matching me with roles that have helped me move toward those goals.

Throughout my search(es), you have been open and honest and have kept me up-to-date on progress, and you have been brilliant at negotiating terms of employment. You really have gone above and beyond what I’ve experienced with other recruiters and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone considering a career move.

I do want to say a big thank you for all your help. I feel like many recruiters start with a role and then go looking for candidates who could fill it, whereas I felt that you started with me and worked to identify the right role given the direction I would like to see my career take.

I met you at a huge turning point in my career and thanks to your care, advice and personality I have made the move I had considered for years. Your approach to placement is highly personalised and centred on the correct fit between candidate and company.

Your advice is founded in a wealth of experience and your ability to get close to the companies requiring placements as well as potential candidates. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for a role and have you at the top of my list for any future recruitment needs.

The whole process of finding a new role was an absolute breeze from start to finish. I found their no nonsense, honest approach extremely refreshing and felt they genuinely took the time to understand what I was looking for. They are incredibly positive, encouraging and give informed and considered advice, something I found really valuable when considering all my options. I will certainly be keeping in touch for the future and wouldn’t think twice about putting any of my friends in touch with them.

I have to say that you are the first recruiter that gave me the feeling that really cares and that I can trust.

I just wanted to thank you for your time and work this week – I just wanted to say I’ve been so impressed with you, it’s not often one encounters a recruiter with such a fantastic grasp of the industry – you’re clearly very good at your job!

Thanks so much! I’m really pleased and very happy! Thanks again for all your advice and help with my job search, you’ve made the whole process very easy.

I cannot begin to thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me over the last month in terms of the support and encouragement you have given.

First of all, thank you SO MUCH for all the work and effort and help you have given me. Can’t believe it – I am sooooo happy!

I’m so pleased to get a role through you rather than through any other recruiter. You’ve been a pleasure to work with.

Thank you for all the help and training and preparation you have given me, it was tremendously helpful!

Thank you very much for your help. I probably wouldn’t have ever discovered XXX without you and you have both been very easy to work with!

I haven’t been impressed by many recruiters but you really seem to listen and importantly, give people time to think as moving jobs can be a big deal for some people. For any friends that are thinking of moving I will definitely recommend them to you!

You have helped tremendously, I cannot thank you enough. I am so thrilled, I need to calm down now!

Thank you for making my New Year brilliant already!

In all seriousness, I have never had another recruiter offer as good advice.

I wanted to say that I really appreciated the discussion last week – you offered some very sage advice.

Thanks for all your help with the interviews – you’ve been so great and helpful!

Thank you so much for your help – I forgot how nice it is to speak to trusted people.

It’s great to see that you’re still awesome at what you do. I’d say this is as perfect as it gets.

Thank you for all your help, advice and positivity – I will recommend you and Pollen to others as the experience has been so pleasurable and gave me a outcome that I am really happy with.

I can’t tell you how delighted I am by the response and also how easy you’ve made the process for me. I’m really grateful.

Your feedback and input was actually the most helpful and useful I’ve had from any recruiter.

Thanks again for all your hard work! You and your team go above and beyond any recruiter I’ve ever crossed paths with.

I wanted to you for all of your support, insights and encouragement since we first touched base, it really means a lot to me and gave me a boost of confidence especially being new to London and all. I’m truly grateful for everything!
