  • "I have recruited via Rachel on several occasions. She's a no nonsense recruiter who gets the cv's to you that fit what you are asking for. Straight forward and easy to deal with at all times - and with a great sense of humour! I would use her again, and again."

  • Rachel was my manager during my time in recruitment, she taught me the ropes and introduced me into adult working life. She educated me each day with her intense knowledge of the Automotive industry and constantly gave me support and help throughout my time at JOY. Rachel is a lovely lady and goes out of her way to assist any client/colleague. It was great working under her and I would 100% recommend her services.
