We’ve worked with a number of consultants across different divisions over the years and we’ve always found Cathedral Appointment’s service to be very professional and efficient. They understand our requirements and are always excellent in putting a number of different options in front of us from which we’ve made many successful appointments. They have a brilliant understanding of the local market and we would highly recommend them.

We are a small business with only occasional need for additional staff but, having tried using various job sites and advertising, would recommend their service for the time it saves in filtering and meeting candidates. We have used Cathedral Appointments a number of times over the years and been impressed with the time they spend getting to know us and our business and the resultant calibre and “good fit” of the candidates that they subsequently introduce to us.

'I've experienced Lynsey whilst looking for a suitable role for myself and then as a manager requiring a number of technical positions. Both experiences have been excellent. During the past 6 months of recruitment, Lynsey has found excellent candidates for my vacancies, provided me with background to the candidates where it's missing on the CV and ensured each candidate turned up. Lynsey keeps in touch, irrespective of any vacancies and provides valuable insights into the technical resource status for Exeter and the surrounding area. I recommend Lynsey for any technical recruitment requirements and for any former colleagues looking for alternate employment.'

Lynsey has over 15 years of recruitment experience, all of which have been with Cathedral Appointments! She initially ran our office division before utilising previous knowledge and experience by taking on the IT Division in 2016. She can also be found running around sorting IT issues in the office for the rest of the team!
Ali joined Cathedral Appointments in 2017 after working in the USA for 18 months. With a customer focused approach and a strong sales background, Ali works alongside Katie on the Office Division and has built up strong relationships with a number of the SW's leading employers. She is probably the fittest (and competitive) member of the CathApps team.
