Testimonials

I worked with Georgia for the first time and found her to be totally professional, and friendly, and she couldn't have been more helpful if she tried. She made looking for a new role seamless. I would definitely recommend using Cathedral Appointments for anyone either looking to recruit or seeking employment.

Elaine F

Candidate | Manufacturing

Link Asset Services have had a long and successful relationship with Cathedral Appointments. We have been very satisfied with the consistent level of service received and the quality of candidates provided. Their consultants have invested time in getting to know our specialist fund administration and accounting business and to ensure they fully understand our requirements. We feel we are a valued client.

Gary Woolfries

Client | Link Asset Services

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.

Tim Bishop

Client | Foresight Financial Planning

Charlotte guided me through the process and always ensured to keep up to date. It was great having someone there that was knowledgeable and couldn’t do enough! It enabled me to successfully secure a new role and I would highly recommend Charlotte and the team's services at Cathedral Appointments.

Oliver S

Candidate | Marketing

Fantastic service received by Jo Howell at Cathedral Appointments. Extremely personable and so lovely to deal with, she was proactive, professional and reliable. Her input helped me to successfully land a role and return to an industry I'd been away from for a few years. Highly recommend Jo and the team at Cathedral.

Suzette K

Candidate | Accountancy and Finance

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.
