  • The Executive Division of JH Recruitment helped us to recruit an Operations Director recently. From the initial brief to preparing the candidates for interview, I was very impressed with the service provided by Divisional Manager, Becki Hume. Becki is friendly, approachable and demonstrated professionalism and passion in her work. She ensured the candidates were well briefed and was very reactive to our requirements. I would highly recommend.

JHR made the whole process easy from start to finish and were very supportive throughout with helpful updates and guidance and great communication. I would definitely recommend both Becki and JHR.

    Jonny - April 2019 (Candidate)

  • Myself and the HR team at ENGIE have worked with Becki and the wider JHR team for sometime now. She has a real understanding of the business which is shown through the candidates we get for our roles and how many are them placed. Becki has always been positive and willing to get stuck in and a pleasure to work with.

    Vanesha - June 2019 (Client)

  • I met with Becki at JHR a few weeks ago to see if they could help find me the next step in my career. She gave me a few options and provided lots of really useful information to help me choose which might be best for me. She was fantastic at keeping in touch and updating me on any progress throughout the entire process. I now have a really exciting new job that I look forward to starting and can't thank, or recommend, JHR and Becki enough. Thank you so much :)

    Robert - October 2019 (Candidate)

  • It has been wonderful working together with Becki, who is an efficient Talent Consultant. Proactive, committed and a broad-minded perfectionist. Excellent in her communication and driven to find best fit candidates for my business. She consistently works towards maximum customer satisfaction by truly understanding the roles she is recruiting for. A dedicated and goal oriented strategist who produces results. Her skills cannot be overestimated. Becki makes the improbable possible. I absolutely would recommend her and the team at JHR to any business.

    Mike - June 2019 (Client)

  • I have worked with Becki form JHR recruitment over the last 18 months. Becki is by far the best recruiter I have worked with. She has a real passion and commitment to find the right candidate for you, she spends time getting to know you and your business ensuring that the business and the candidate are a good fit for each other.

    Lisa - September 2018 (Client)

  • …Please see the attached Feedback Survey although I don’t think the survey does Becki’s service justice. We dealt with another Recruitment Company for this position and she seemed to be streets ahead. I found that she was very personable throughout the entire process; calling after interviews, giving updates on candidates etc. She was extremely honest about the candidates she had screened as well, judging when she thought that they weren’t right for our company whereas other agencies would have thrown a CV at us and hoped it stuck. As a company, we were very impressed with her service throughout. Overall, we think the process has been a huge success and aim to look to Jo Holdsworth Recruitment to assist us with our next vacancy…

    Joe - March 2017 (Client)

  • I found Becki to be friendly and helpful in her approach, exceptionally professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with from the initial point of contact right through to placement.

    Annette - July 2018 (Candidate)

  • I just want to say a big thank you to Becki at Jo Holdsworth for helping me find a new job. From the interview preparation and discussing potential positions they had available, before I accepted the current role, they are always on hand for any questions I had or any concerns I needed clarifying. So friendly and personable I couldn’t recommend them more highly. Thank you again 😊

    Edward - July 2019 (Candidate)

  • "My experience with Jo Holdsworth recruitment has been nothing but positive! I was made to feel like a valued client and I felt they genuinely wanted to see me succeed in finding a job. My contact during the process was Becki and I think I had more phonecalls over the last 3 weeks with her than I did my Mum! She was so helpful and efficient with everything. She made me feel so relaxed and answered any query or concern I had during the process. I have managed to secure a job in Leeds and I genuinely don’t think I would have been able to do it without her support and advise. I would recommend anyone looking for a job to search through this agency. Thank you for all of your help and support!"

    Molly - March 2019 (Candidate)

  • I was contacted by Becki in the Summer of 2017,at the time I was finishing my masters and I was looking for my first job out of university. The firm gave me a range of different career paths to choose from, helped me update my CV and got me an interview in my chosen field in a only a couple of weeks! If you’re looking for a new career, I would highly recommend this firm in the search for your new place of work.

    Keanu - September 2017 (Candidate)

  • What a fantastic agency, such a brilliant experience from start to finish! The team at JHR are so friendly and professional. My consultant was Becki, such a lovely lady who knew exactly what I wanted and placed me in a position within the first week of joining the agency. I will definitely be recommending JHR to my family and friends!

    Kelly - July 2018 (Candidate)

  • I have been a client of Becki's for almost 4 years and she is far and away the best recruiter I have worked with. She takes the time to get to know her clients and their busines needs and her professionalism always shines through

    Steve - June 2019 (Client)

  • Becki was my first point of contact and it was refreshing that she listened to my aims and ambitions, rather than pushing me down a certain avenue.

    Becki completely understands what it is like to wait back on an application and stayed in constant communication with me, helping me every step along the way.

    My situation was very unique and to my delight, Becki found the perfect fit for me. Can't thank the team enough!

    George - May 2018 (Candidate)

  • From the first visit it is hard to not notice the hard working, dynamic team at Jo Holdsworth that are all very well presented and always hosting a good positive projected attitude.

    The level of clear cut professionalism is astounding and with a very high level understanding of the work on offer and quick clear communication this makes for a speedy process as they will know where you're best suited.

    I was also impressed with the interview run through, and the confidence that Becki presented her knowledge. This being the case I found my actual interview a breeze.

    Thank you to Becki and all the team I will highly recommend you.

    Nick - February 2018 (Candidate)

  • They’re fantastic honestly, they take a genuine interest, really easy to talk to and all the staff were lovely, Becki deserves special praise, she helped me find a job again in less than a week, still can’t believe it..thank you so much!!!

    Calvin - November 2017 (Candidate)

  • I can't recommend JHR enough, it took me a long time to find a job but I always felt like Becki and Jenn were doing everything they could to find me work. If you're looking for work don't go to anyone else

    Iain - November 2017 (Candidate)

  • Would recommend to everybody! I recently graduated from university and was struggling to find a job, so I signed up with jo holdsworth recruitment and within a few days Becki had already set me up with an interview with a company, after two interviews I got the job, but I couldn't have done it without Becki's help!
    She was really lovely, easy to talk to and wanted the best for me! She did mock interviews with me before my real interviews and I have never felt more prepared. Just want to thank Becki so much!

    Nicola - November 2017 (Candidate)

  • By far the best recruitment agency I've across in a long while, Becky has been phenomenal in helping me find work and the interview preparation and question handling advice I got was spot on. Thank you so much for all your help!

    Sam - May 2017 (Candidate)

  • 100% would recommend! Becki contacted me last Friday, met on Tuesday, job interview and job offer today! There was no time wasting, she wanted me to get a new job as quick as I wanted one.
    Becki made me feel very at ease and wanted to find me a job that fitted exactly what I want. This recruitment agency is perfect for anyone who isn't sure about their next career move, just like I was.
    Thank you very much for the great service!
