"I would recommend Tay to everyone as it was the first time I had the feeling that someone was really trying to understand who I am and what I want."
"Really one of the best agencies I have ever registered with. Staff are all lovely and well informed."
"I met David for an informal chat but ended up being offered a job before I could register fully with Tay. David was extremely helpful, giving me tips on how to improve my CV and seemed to really understand the sorts of roles I would be interested in. I was very pleased with the service provided by Tay."
"Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a big thank you to you, and all the other lovely ladies at Tay, in helping me find what I'm sure will be a great role for me. You have made what is going to be, I hope, a good year great. I really liked you all instantly, and you have given me one of the best help/services I have ever received from an agency, and I will be sure to tell everyone who will listen how great you are! (you can forward this onto your boss for extra brownie points!)"
"Tay have been amazing! I've been jobless for pretty much 8 months and within 1 week of joining Tay they had me temping and sent to interviews for full time roles. They are ultra efficient and give you so much information it really feels like you have a personal consultant looking for work for you - something I have never EVER found elsewhere! A massive thanks to all - especially Joyce and Natalie - 4 weeks of temping and I have just been offered a perm role!!! Redundant no more! Thank you!!"
"I am just writing to say thank you so much for all of your help whilst I was looking for a job. Tay Associates was by far the friendliest and most helpful agency that I have worked with and I would definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for a similar position to myself. I would be very grateful if you could also pass the message of thanks to everyone else at Tay and especially Susanna Tait as she was the one person who first signed me up. Finally, I wanted to say thank you for the card and the gifts, the chocolates went down really well at the office! Thank you for making all this possible."
"I am writing this letter to give you feedback on one of your consultants after having dealt with her during the past several months. During the hard time of searching for a new position this consultant was incredibly helpful and motivating during this difficult period. After I was made redundant I was very unmotivated due to the job market being increasingly tough. I spent a lot of time registering with many recruitment agencies. I found that many agencies were happy to register me but they would have very little interest in actually helping me.
I found at your recruitment agency everyone was always helpful whenever I called. My consultant called on a regular basis to check on me, cheer and build me up and was always nice and friendly. When I called and she wasn't at her desk, she always returned my call the same day. The other agencies I was registered with did not reach the same standard as Tay Recruitment.
Communication was excellent. She even contacted me before going on annual leave to pass on another consultants contact details in her absence. I though that very professional and helpful. Ideally I would have loved for Tay to have found me a new position but after weeks of searching another agency found my current position which is a Marketing Assistant / EA in Boutique Finance.
I would most certainly recommend Tay to any future candidates and companies in the future. My consultant really kept me inspired during this difficult period and I feel she is an excellent consultant and a real asset to your agency. Please pass on my regards to my consultant and I wish both her and Tay Recruitment every success in the future."
"I am just writing to say thank you so much for all of your help whilst I was looking for a job. Tay Associates was by far the friendliest and most helpful agency that I have worked with and I would definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for a similar position to myself."
"My consultant was very supportive and encouraging through the whole process, she found me right job! For me I don't think there is anything you can improve on. From start to finish it has been a great experience dealing with Tay."
"I want to thank you very much for trying to find work for me and for your encouraging words. Believe me I understand how hard it must be for you to find the right job for each of your candidates during these difficult times. Please be assured of my deep appreciation of your efforts on my behalf, and of the moral support you have given me."
"I would just like to comment on how amazingly efficient this firm has been in dealing with me. At every stage, each person I have spoken to has done exactly what he/she has promised and I have never been let down. I have dealt with a fair few agencies over the years from the down right awful to most well known firms and without a doubt your firm shines brightest."
"I would just like to say thank you for all your assistance in my job search. I have been most impressed by your professionalism and friendly manner. The way in which you have always kept in contact and followed up after my interviews has been exemplary."
"I wanted to take a moment to THANK YOU all for all your help and advice over the last 3 months. I don't mean to be patronising but Tay Associates are, without question, in a league of their own when it comes to dealing with 'jobseekers'.
From the very first day when you interviewed me, you have always shown tremendous respect and have always been very straightforward with me, and that was very much appreciated.
While the majority of agencies don't even bother to reply to emails or ever contact you again after the first meeting, you have always acknowledged my messages practically within the hour, and kept in constant communication... and let me tell you, this is very rare with agencies... and that's what sets you apart from the rest.
Again, please accept my most sincere thanks and my very best regards."
"Really, it is very hard to be honest with recruitment consultants (talking from bad past experiences!) but you have made the whole process painless and you have been a pleasure to work with. I will certainly come back to you if I find myself looking for a job again. I think the way Tay works is much more on a personal level where you are not just a number that gets sent out to any assignment."
"Thank you for your help so far. I also wanted you to know that out of all the agencies I registered with, I found Tay to be the most friendly and professional and in particular, I found you to be very helpful and your receptionist also."
"It is quite easy to find a recruitment agency with a good reputation but quite another to find one so committed as a team to its candidates. One of the main things that I found terrific about working with you is that you had taken the time to find out about what I really wanted, you also thought laterally in ways I would never have. Some of the positions you sent me for I would never have applied for myself and yet when I got to the interviews I could see that this was not just a random selection but I actually suited the roles. The one that you have recently placed me in is fantastic and in all honesty I could not have found a better job spec if I had sat down for a week and composed it myself."
"I just wanted to say again that I think you have been fantastic. You prepared me exceptionally well for all my interviews and have been really thorough and supportive. Thank you for being so nice to deal with, especially when I had to make the hard decision to turn down the role. I will certainly recommend you to friends above any other agents"
"First of all I want to say a HUGE thanks to you for finding me my perfect job in London. I know I will be so happy at the company and it's all because of you putting me forward for the role and believing in me. I can honestly say you have got to be the best Recruitment Consultant I have EVER worked with and your standard of professionalism is out of this world. Everyone at Tay Associates has been great and I will definitely recommend you to people in the future."
"It was really lovely meeting you today, I felt very relaxed with you and after leaving I was full of confidence in the way my interviewed was conducted. I do believe that you are fully aware of my next career move up the ladder and I hope I will have the opportunity to represent Tay Associates as a strong leading candidate"
"Tay has continued to do an absolutely outstanding job for us - the market at Manager's Asistant level has been pretty hideous this year but Tay has still found us some superstars - you just get what I want and somehow always seem to find the right candidate (only 4 out of my team of 17 were not Tay candidates). I don't often use temps or contractors but have had to more and more and Tay has always been extremely responsive and spot on in getting us the right candidates - two of Tay's candidates have become full time employees."
"I have felt that Tay Associates have all been behind me one hundred per cent and I am extremely grateful for all the support."
"You stand head and shoulders above the rest in terms of placement, payment and approachability"
"Your approach in the interview was very different from what I have come to expect from recruitment consultants - a welcome change!"
"It was a joy to deal with an agency who genuinely called and kept in regular contact!"
"I am fully confident that Tay Associates are going to be able to find my next job."
"The professionalism and standard of service that you offer is second to none and I would not hesitate in recommending you to my friends and colleagues."
