Client & Candidate Feedback....

I have been impressed with the support and help that Trapeze HR have provided during my job search.  As a job seeker I really appreciated the time and trouble they both took to keep in touch with me (with job ideas & interesting webinar events) and the detailed feedback I was given if I was not suitable for a role.  I felt in very capable hands, that I could fully trust their approach and that they had my best interests at heart with their relationship based consultative approach”  HR Director, Patricia Winter

Out of all the agencies I've spoken to over the last few months you have been the most supportive, responsive and generally kindest, so I wanted to drop you a note to personally say thank you, I won't forget it and certainly won't hesitate to recommend you. Vicki Pett, Global HR Director

It is a pleasure to work with Harriet and Jane at Trapeze. They are consummate professionals who really understand the world of HR. This expertise is wonderfully balanced with warm and genuine hearts. That is a great cocktail! Despite the challenges of the current climate they have found me a couple of interesting interim assignments with varied clients & briefs. Hilda Barrett, interim HR professional

We cannot thank Trapeze HR enough for their assistance and guidance in placing our first HR Manager in our growing business. They listened to what we needed both now and in the future and also who would best fit our culture and values going forward. They were fast, easy to work with, thorough and put forward the most amazing shortlist of candidates who hit our brief spot on. Every single candidate brought the skillset we wanted and more, so the decision to pick a candidate was very difficult as the quality was so high. We are pleased to say we have now made an offer and the candidate who stood out for us as exceptional has accepted and we are absolutely delighted. Jane and Harriet are a joy to work with and my colleagues and I would recommend them without hesitation. Nigel Moore, CEO, Ross Trustees

Thank you to Trapeze HR for their hard work & dedication in finding me the ideal role. They understood the need to find the right level of role for my experience, balanced with working part time as well as a company that matched my values and goals.  Their knowledge, expertise and their personable approach made the process completely seamless. Pippa Smith, HR Manager, Camellia Plc

Refreshing, Professional, Engaging… just a few words to describe the recent engagement with the Trapeze team. They dispel the myth around recruiters and truly do care… They quickly understood both our tangible and intangible requirements, delivered promptly, and communicated all the way. A true pleasure to work with and will not be the last. I would highly recommend these creative and friendly specialists, Jane and Harriet were spot on. Stuart Salt, Director of Services, Transputec Ltd

Trapeze were fast, friendly and pragmatic - helping us find the short term and longer term HR resources we needed at very short notice. I would certainly recommend them. Alex Pumfrey, CEO, Film & TV Charity

I reached out to Harriet for support on a niche early careers role, and the team at Trapeze were a delight to work with, I would highly recommend them. Not only did they really understand what we were looking for and our culture, they presented a shortlist of fantastic candidates, filling the position in record time. Alexandra Stone, Talent Acquisition Lead, YouGov 

I can’t recommend Jane and Harriet more, they are the ultimate professionals with a huge dollop of heart. They understand the complexities of HR and combine this deep understanding with pragmatism and humour. They are always available and check in at all stages of the recruitment process in an insightful way. My candidate experience couldn’t have been more positive, I’ll definitely use them in the future. Liz Nuttall, HR Director, Life Sciences

Trapeze HR came highly recommended to me when we started the search for a Talent Acquisition Manager. They lived up to the billing!   Harriet and Jane were super swift off the mark to come to see me, get under the skin of the business and interpret what we really needed. They intuitively and accurately crafted a job description from our conversation before very quickly delivering high quality candidates against the brief. The role was filled in no time.  Go Trapeze!
Tom Stazicker, CEO, Virgin Pure

Trapeze HR were super to work with and we found Jane & Harriet’s professional and friendly approach refreshing.  They were really helpful in identifying exactly what our business needed in terms of level of calibre and our Head of People, Jo, who works 3 days, is a really invaluable asset to the team here at Falanx Group. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Trapeze HR to other dynamic, growing, SME businesses. Ian Selby, CFO, Falanx

Trapeze HR really took time to understand the organisation, the role and my working style to thoughtfully present candidates who were technically able, credible and a strong cultural fit. They also did this super quickly and in a fun and engaging way. It was immediately before Christmas and I’m sure they were swamped with other roles but as a client, they created the perception that my role was their priority. They will be my first call for future requirements and I wholeheartedly recommend them to others. Laura Gould, UK Head of HR, Camellia Plc

We retained Trapeze HR to work with us to source our new HR Director in September 2019.  They were consultative and collaborative in their approach and really responsive to our requirements.  Together we quickly fleshed out the brief and the specification for this new role and within 2 weeks they had sourced some very high calibre candidates.  We were very impressed with the candidates they supplied and we have secured a superb HRD who joins us to work in the business 4 days a week in the New Year.  I would thoroughly recommend Trapeze HR to other SME businesses looking to hire senior HR talent – Harriet & Jane work hard, they understand HR and its complexities - you are in very safe hands with them working alongside you. John Colenutt, COO, Genomics

It was a real pleasure to work with Trapeze HR on my job search, especially as I was very specific on the part-time element of any role – 2-3 days.  I recognised that this type of part-time HR role, at an appropriate level to match my experience, would be few and far between, however Trapeze where confident that they could match me with the role and organisation that I was looking for…and indeed they successfully did! The support and follow up during the recruitment process and beyond has been amazing and I am highly appreciative of their efforts. I won’t hesitate to recommend Trapeze HR and thank you for finding me a great opportunity. Louise Richards, HR Director, Gresham House

It was a great experience working with Harriet & Jane at Trapeze HR.  Their pragmatic and supportive approach to helping me find a job, was invaluable as I was returning to work after an extended career break.  They offered much needed optimism and practical advice and guidance which guided me towards the right role. Their individual approach to finding the right flexible role means that it is not a one size fits all approach to job hunting and they ‘get’ the need to support diversity in the workforce. Clare Culf, HR Manager, BVCA
