I've recently relocated to Exeter from London and Cathedral Appointments placed me in a role that's a great fit with my background. I've been very impressed by the quality of support I received throughout the interview and job offer process, and the focus that the team had (and Jo in particular) on making sure the role was a good match in terms of experience, opportunity and organisational culture. Thoroughly recommended.
Excellent service. I got made redundant at the end of January, went to see Jayne @ Cathedral appointments and within 3 days I had an interview and started work the next day! So professional and friendly, have been recommending Cathedral appointments to all my friends and family. Thank you so much.
'Sophia, you have helped me get my foot in the door, and be well on my way to achieving my career dreams! I cannot emphasise how thankful I am to you.'

After 18 months of yo-yoing in and out of lockdowns, the positives that remote working has brought to the table for many employees are endless. According to a new survey by RADA Business, nearly half of workers would like to continue working remotely post-pandemic, with the younger generation being most in favour of this shift.
Despite having embarked on successful careers, why do women feel they have peaked in comparison to men, and what can you do if you feel this way?
Despite the UK beginning to sense some sort of normality after an incredibly turbulent 18 months, there’s no denying that more uncertain times are ahead as the government plans to slow down, or stop completely, the level of financial support it has been giving businesses.
