Valued feedback from clients and candidates that we work with both past and present telling you exactly what it's like to work alongside Aspire.
As a new Manager, being able to depend on Kate to find great candidates for the business means that my events hit their projected targets. This is incredibly valuable for me because it improves my credibility and trustworthiness amongst stakeholders, and it means that I am regarded as a high performing manager in the business.
Kate's work with EMAP has made a huge impact on my team - not to mention a boatload of sales, marketing, and event ops teams who have been able to get their bonuses because her candidates helped us hit targets!
I would definitely recommend the team at Aspire as a highly valued recruitment partner for anyone looking to recruit in the media space.
The video profile made the interview process a lot smoother and made it easier for companies to get a feel of my experience. Abigail Moss the divisional manager at Aspire helped me to land my new role. She is super honest and transparent and was genuinely passionate about helping me get the role I wanted. Thanks to Aspire, I am now excited to take a new step in my career.
I just wanted to drop you a brief note to let you know how amazing Ellie has been over the past couple of weeks.
I’ve been hunting for the next opportunity for several months. Clearly, the market has been slow for obvious reasons, but on the whole I have sadly found my experiences with most recruiters generally tough; no one has seemed interested in supporting me, and in lots of cases, even having a decent starting conversation.
Ellie has been the complete opposite. She’s been an absolute delight to work with; positive, helpful, enthusiastic, encouraging, inspiring and motivating.
Unfortunately, the role I was working with Ellie on didn't quite work out this time, but I wanted to let you know how grateful I am for all the time and quality support she has invested in me during the process - I’m sure you already know but you have an absolute shining star in your team.
Wishing you all the best",
It was a massive success. I think the way Aspire's consultants conducted themselves and delivered, not only in terms of the candidates but client service as well, was brilliant. I've had nothing but good feedback within the business.
The outcome of that project was a complete success and that alone speaks volumes. It's 100% something I would do again.
The good thing about Aspire is that they're so well staffed, that we can take 2 people from the team and they can still deliver at the same standard across the rest of Group M and give us 100% capacity.
It was already a good relationship but this project has strengthened it even more.
A specialist consultant in all things creative and design, Asha has spent the last 2+ years matching stand out candidates with leading companies.
She recently worked with MOI Global and this is what they had to say about her:
"Having worked with a couple of recruitment agencies, I have to say that Asha is one of the best in the business.
She's very thorough, reliable and followed up consistently even after the hire (unlike other agencies). She's quick to respond, very attentive and understands our challenges in order to find a suitable talent solution.
I appreciate her professionalism and dedication which is a breath of fresh air in the local recruiting industry."
Angelina is a specialist when is comes to recruiting into Sales, Business Development and Account Management. She recently worked with Haymarket and here is what they had to say:
"Angelina is a very diligent recruiter/ head hunter. We had a very specific need for someone on the sales team and we wanted to find a candidate who fitted a set of criteria which are not necessarily easy to find - a young, driven, sales person with a great understanding of financial markets. We were working with multiple agencies, but Angelina was able to provide less candidates but that fitted all the criteria. To myself as the hiring manager, it was great as my time wasn’t spent speaking to candidates who were only partly relevant. Angelina was also very good with following up and making sure the process moved at a good speed, but at no time did we feel rushed to make a decision. Definitely recommend."
Jacqueline, has spent many years helping those in the technology fields to find their perfect role.
She values a personal approach to recruiting, believing that the candidate's satisfaction comes above any corporate quota. This was recognized recently by the candidate Jasper Blue, who gave testimony to her skill as a recruiter:
“Jacqueline is an unusually talented recruitment consultant, and approaches her work with a great deal of integrity. In an industry that sometimes favors short-term outcomes over win-win connections, Jacqueline stands out as an someone who puts a lot of effort into making genuine placements. She does this by putting an immense effort into getting to know her clients and candidates, and building long-term relationships. She places her compassion for people above the opportunity for short-term profit.”
With more than 5 years of experience at Aspire, April is the expert behind recruiting into Marketing and Digital Media spaces. She recently successfully placed candidate Jay Cunanan at Spotify and here's what he has to say:
"April is one of the best that I came across within helping me connect with the right network and ultimately land a great position in a great company [Spotify]. Her main strength lies in her personal approach. She asked great questions and listened intently in order to understand me and tailor options accordingly. She's been really great in understanding my career goals and carefully matched it with the right opportunity. She's great in communicating the role, further allowing me to adapt my approach in order to achieve success and secure a great position. It's also great to work with her since she has a very positive and cheerful personality. My interactions with her have all been nothing but pleasant. I would definitely recommend April to anyone looking for an outstanding level of recruitment consultancy service."
