Between them (the Consultants), they have secured me a contract to start on Wednesday. Amazingly this was done within 36 hours which I can hardly believe myself.
The Consultants both worked very hard on my behalf and were professional and friendly during every conversation we had. However, please can I say that what I appreciated most was that when they both said they were going to call, they did so and kept me up to date with things all the way. During my recent spell of looking for a job, that is certainly something I cannot say about a good deal of other agency staff.
Please could you pass on my sincere thanks to both of them and I look forward to receiving my contract in due course.
IT PROFESSIONAL, LEADING INSURER
‘I am always impressed when I deal with HFG. They make an effort to really understand the work we do and current market issues, and are always a pleasure to talk to. The guys there spend time learning what you need from a role and are never pushy about going for positions. It’s this personal touch and attention that makes them stand out from other recruitment companies. From my own point of view, HFG has placed me twice in my career so far, and both roles worked out really well. The second role I am doing right now and it has been a real transformation for me!’
RESERVING MANAGER, LEADING LLOYD’S SYNDICATE
‘I have never felt more supported in my application process before. I really feel that my HFG consultant has gone out of their way to assist me in my application and preparation for interview. It is appreciated.’
TRAINEE ACTUARY, LEADING UK LIFE INSURER
‘[HFG has] many excellent recruitment consultants that I would like to build my relationship with throughout my career.’
PRICING ACTUARY, LEADING INSURANCE COMPANY
‘At HFG it is very easy to talk to consultants who take the time to get to know me – I’m not just a number.’
CLAIMS ADJUSTER, TOP MULTINATIONAL INSURANCE GROUP
‘Very professional and HFG consultants actually think about the candidate. Most recruitment agents are only interested in a candidate if they are relevant for a current role.’
COMPLIANCE CO-ORDINATOR, TOP MULTINATIONAL INSURANCE GROUP
‘The thing I like about HFG is that they have the right balance of contact – they don’t try to keep pestering me but there is enough contact to keep me updated when needed.’
GI ACTUARY, GLOBAL INSURANCE PROVIDER
‘I have never felt more supported in my application process before. I really feel you have gone out of your way to assist me in my application and preparation for interview. It is appreciated.’
LIFE ACTUARY, LEADING LIFE INSURER
‘My consultant was extremely helpful in both providing career direction and constructive criticism about how my CV was formatted and furthermore, how best to prepare for the interview. I can say from experience working in recruitment that she excelled all my expectations, with great market knowledge and a genuine care for myself as her candidate – I worked out that the total duration from the first meeting, to me signing the contract and it took less than two calendar weeks which itself is impressive – especially I was coming from a background with little direct experience. I wish Anna all the best and look forward to working with her in future.’
UNDERWRITING ASSISTANT, GLOBAL STRATEGY CONSULTANCY
‘HFG provided me with all the information necessary for the role and kept me up to date with everything that was going on. My consultant also advised me about an interview test I was going to have which helped me with my overall preparation for the interview process. I would like to thank HFG for the service provided and helping me get the job.’
