Here’s what our candidates have to say!

I hope you are all well and had a nice weekend. I wanted to say thank you for all the time and support you have all given me in the past few weeks in order for me to find work. As you may know I have been accepted for a temp role at the council for 8 weeks, I am hopeful this will open up new avenues for me.

The past year has been challenging for us all due to the pandemic but then I had an additional setback as I was diagnosed with cancer at the end of last year, I was determined to overcome the illness and get back into work. The longer I was out of work the harder it was getting for me so when my coach at the jobcentre suggested a course with Recro Consulting I thought I need to give it a go.

The guys who delivered the 6 day course where amazing. I felt more comfortable with online meetings, which I feel is so important with the current circumstance, the interaction with other members helped my confidence and mindset also being ready for 10 am to start the course every morning motivated me to structure my day better.

I was determined to carry on looking at areas where I could improve after completing the 6 days on the course so I sent my CV and cover letter over to Kathryn who did a great job and updated the documents to a professional standard, I then used the new CV to apply for jobs and also sent it to my previous employer who recruit for the council, within hours they got back to me and said I had an interview with the manager.

Interviews can make me very nervous so again I called Recro and you (Eddie) helped me through possible questions and really helped calm my nerves, I found being able to prep with a person rather than just reading online helped me with my confidence, although I wasn’t asked many questions on the interview I have kept all my notes for future reference!

Thanks again for the amazing service you provide for people like myself to get back to work, I am hopeful I won’t need to contact you again but if I do then I am confident you will do your best to help. – ZA, August 2021

They gave me excellent interviews tips and techniques to get me through the various interviews I may have come up against. They walk you through all aspects of getting a job. I had a great response over 60% of jobs I applied for acknowledged my application. I actually enjoyed the process of job hunting. This resulted in me getting two job offers in one week ! I’ve accepted one and hope to start within the next couple of weeks. – MT, March 2021

Recro were also amazing. The course they provided was so useful and I got some great tips from them for CV updating and interview skills. Also setting up my LinkedIn profile which has been so useful for me. It’s an invaluable course for anyone out of work and like yourself the team there were so helpful and friendly. If I was ever to be out of work again I would go straight to them. – KA, February 2021

I learned a great deal from my time on the Course – I’ll be honest I wasn’t sure what to expect from it but came away after two days feeling very positive, motivated and a lot more confident in ‘me’. LP, January 2021

I found the Recro course very helpful when learning about improving my CV and the different ways of applying for jobs and would recommend people to do it. – SM, December 2020

Thank you all for all the support and techniques you shown me and it gave me the confidence to go about and find the job I love. – ZB, December 2020

The part that I actually think got me the job (my interview was a couple days after the course), was the interview techniques. Questions, STAR, and the answers, plus the enthusiasm and being positive! – MB, December 2020

Thanks very much for all your help and advice during the last couple of days. It’s been really useful to go through everything step by step and it’s given me a much better idea of what I need to do from this point. – CB, December 2020

I just wanted to give you some feedback regards the course. Fan bloody tastic!
I would whole heartedly recommend it. – SGK, November 2020

I wanted to give some feedback on the Recro course that you organised for me to attend. I thought the course was really good. It was fast-paced and squeezed a lot in, but they did it in a way that was easy to follow and gave you a lot of ideas in that short space of time. It pulled everything together and I came away feeling energised and better equipped to continue my work search. The fact that it was virtual actually worked well and moving to break-out groups was easy as no physical move was necessary and you didn’t have interference from other groups. Though I cannot speak for all those on the course, my feeling is that most people felt the same as myself. – CT, November 2020

The course was run very efficiently, everything was on time and ran smoothly. It was engaging and overall beneficial to me and I’m sure anyone who is trying to gain employment. – VS, November 2020

Just wanted to let you and your colleagues know that I actually got offered a full time position this morning working in pharmacy! I’ll still be doing my teaching assistant course at weekends and in the evenings for a possible long term goal but just a thank you basically, your help is greatly appreciated and went very far, particularly revamping my CV and with interview questions/answers! STAR is definitely a must know for everyone. Thank you! – MB, November 2020

I came back from being abroad, with honestly no purpose. And prior to me joining yesterday I came into it thinking there was nothing I could gain.
Within the first 5 minutes your warm personality changed that for me. You had me in a fit of giggles. And honestly this course has been such an eye-opener and I have learnt so much.
It has been amazing not only to interact with people from so many different walks of life, but also gain knowledge and skills from them.
I think what you are doing is amazing and will honestly be life changing for not just me but everyone else. Thank you again! – TG, November 2020

These are just a few of the excellent testimonials and feedback we get.
