Candidate Recommendation – Gillian Pate, Georgia McGavock & Nicole McGaughay

Absolutely fantastic service from Anderson Knight. I came to Anderson Knight when I was absolutely desperate to find a job and unfortunately when I was applying to jobs on my own I wasn’t even getting to the interview stage. After months of trying to find a job and not getting very far I lost hope and stopped applying for jobs. I came across Anderson Knight after a friend recommended me to sign up. Anderson Knight has been so incredible with me. They have been so efficient and professional with making sure all my needs are met and they have consistently kept in touch every step of the way in case I need anything. I would like to highlight Gillian Pate , Georgia McGavock and Nicole McGaughay. After working with these three fantastic people I have now secured my self a full time job which I absolutely love. I feel like such a professional now and I am so happy working in my new job. I would like to thank them for seeing the potential in me and making sure I got what I needed out of the Anderson Knight service as I wouldn’t have been able to do this on my own. I would also like to thank them for making me aware of my potential and how much I can achieve as I feel that my confidence has improved greatly. Even though I have started my job they have still kept in contact to make sure I settle in and they tell me they are there if I need them. I feel so lucky to have come across Anderson Knight. 10 out of 10 and I will be recommending Anderson Knight to everyone.

Candidate recommendation

“To anyone who is currently job hunting I would highly recommend John Forbes from Anderson Knight. In the time that I have known John he has always been consistent and true to his word. A call to see how you are and to give an update on the market, advice on interview techniques and John always calls before and after an interview for feedback and to give assurances or advice. He is always professional and reliable and someone you can trust to look after your best interests”.

Louise Reekie – Savills Management Resources

“Gillian goes above and beyond and takes times to really understand your business, the culture, and what type of candidate would be ideal for the role. Her honesty in her approach to recruitment sets her apart from anyone else in the industry. I trust she will fulfil a role when she commits to it, and equally if a role is not something she can help with, she will tell me from the outset, something I appreciate and have enabled me to build a trusting relationship with Gillian over the years. I have worked with Gillian both as a candidate and as an employer, and I haven’t maintained a long term relationship with any other recruiter quite like I have with Gillian, and that is down to her work ethic and the relationship she builds with her clients."

Louise Reekie
Regional HR Advisor / Savills Management Resources

I have worked with Anderson Knight for many years, and, specifically, with Gillian for roughly a year. Gillian is enthusiasm personified – the minute you engage Gillian she addresses your requirements immediately, and with boundless energy. The standard of candidate presented is always high, and Gillian has paced several staff with us in the face of some stiff competition. I have no hesitation in recommending the work of Anderson Knight, and Gillian specifically.

Candidate Recommendation – Gillian Pate

Gillian was great from start to finish and beyond. From my first enquiry about the role Gillian was supportive and informative, Gillian was in constant contact with me throughout the recruitment process and during the settling in period in my new role. I found Gillian to be personable and really easy to speak to, prior to this move I was in my previous role for 12 years, so I was a little unsure, but Gillian kept me right all the way through. Gillian is positive and friendly, she builds a rapport quickly and is genuinely supportive and caring. I am now 4 months into my new role, and I love it.

Lindsay Boyd
People Operations Manager

Having recently experienced the recruitment process with ‘Anderson Knight’ I can for the first time say, and without any hesitation that this company sets the standard for all others in this field to follow. I was contacted by ‘Steven Woods’ who unlike most other recruiters that have contacted me was not merely fishing for information but had something to bring to the table. At all times through the process the attention to detail by Steven was second to none and I was impressed by the professional manner that everything was handled.

Padraig Curran
Multi Utility Design and Estimating Manager / Energy Assets

Anderson Knight were fantastic to work with. As a recruiter they maintained a highly professional approach and were always on hand to provide advice throughout the process. Their professional consultants were quick to understand the kind of role I was looking for, recognising my strengths and putting me forward for exactly the right job, furthermore the aftersales care received from the business as a whole has been nothing short of excellent. I would highly recommend Anderson Knight to any potential jobseeker looking for a career change.

Candidate Recommendation – Gillian Pate

Gillian is a real pleasure to work with, she takes the time to listen to who you are as a person and aims to match you with the right role and organisation for you. Her goal is not just to shoe horn you into any position, she gets to know you and builds a lasting relationship that is genuine. Gillian is super friendly, professional and an expert in her field. She helped me move from an organisation that didn't value me as a person or as a professional and 7 weeks into my new role, I couldn't be happier.

City Facilities Management

I thought I would take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance with my recruitment needs over the past few months As you know, I have had a high turnover of staff this year and initially had issues finding suitable candidates when using internal systems and another recruiter After meeting yourself and getting Anderson Knight on board, you quickly identified 3 suitable candidates for a position that I had available I also had some candidates from another recruiter and some personal recommendations for this same position The work that you put in to identify these candidates was apparent when I selected one of your candidates for my initial vacancy and then another for a second vacancy that I had soon after. My experience with yourself and Anderson Knight so far, would make you my first port of call for any future vacancies where external recruitment is required  

Guy Shirkie
Remote Services Manager / City Facilities Management

Steven Woods is an outstanding recruiter. I was headhunted for a role I would never have considered and it turns out to be the best career move I have ever made!

Stephen McQuade
Financial Director / G1 Group

I have had recent experience of working with Anderson Knight (David McFall and Gillian Pate) to fill a post which was challenging.  The service I received from David was excellent.  He was engaged and proactive every step of the way and took the pain out of interviewing and appointing for this post.  His aftercare was second to none and I feel he supported the person and me very well. I would recommended them to staff in the University and would be delighted to go to them again.
