Dani has placed me in a couple of positions which have both been a great match to my skills and personality. She has always worked with my best interests at heart and the whole team provides a very professional service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cathedral Appointments to anyone looking for either a job or to hire staff.
'We have used Cathedral Appointments for a number of years to help us recruit staff and we have always been delighted with the high standard of service from the team and the quality of the candidates they put forward. They have taken the time to understand our business and the type of person that we look for which has helped us to attract and retain some excellent people to our team. Sophia is an absolute pleasure to work with and we look forward to continuing this in the future.'

At the end of 2020, it was reported that three-quarters of UK workers had experienced burnout as a direct result of the workplaces changes brought about by the pandemic – notably being thrown into working from home with no choice. And in 2021, this worrying trend has seemingly continued with 1 in 5 employees reporting to feel unable to manage the pressures and stress levels at work.
While it may seem hard to comprehend moving jobs in a pandemic, there’s never been a better time than the present. For the first time in nearly a year and a half, the landscape is on more level footing and employers are desperate for talent. Such a candidate-led market is rare, and this is a brilliant opportunity to make the most out of taking your next step.
According to the ONS, over 100,000 new jobs have been created in the technology sector since the start of the pandemic. This now means that there are 1.6 million tech jobs across the UK alone – a booming sector and one rife with opportunity for job seekers and current employees alike.
I joined Cathedral Appointments in 1998 to cover a maternity leave and never left. I now own the business and love my job. I've a great team of consultants who work with me in ensuring that Cathedral Appointments provide an excellent service to candidates and clients alike.
I've gained an excellent knowledge of the local employment market and have long established relationships with many leading employers in the area. I recruit for a number of commercial organisations as well as the public and not for profit sectors and have a strong network of HR and Executive contacts in the region.
