I recently had the pleasure of working with a small independent recruitment agency. I must say that my experience was nothing short of exceptional. From the very first interaction, the recruiter demonstrated a level of professionalism and commitment that exceeded my expectations. Ceres’ personalized approach made me feel like a priority, and I never felt like just another number in their database. Ceres took the time to understand my skills, experience, and career goals, ensuring they were well-equipped to find the right opportunities for me. Better Days Recruitment had an impressive network and connections within the industry. Ceres tapped into her extensive professional network, leaving no stone unturned in the search for suitable positions. They were proactive, diligent, and constantly kept me updated on any potential opportunities. One of the standout aspects of working with this agency was the attention to detail and the personalized service. Ceres took the time to understand my strengths and weaknesses, tailoring their approach to align with my aspirations. They provided valuable guidance and advice throughout the process, from polishing my resume to preparing for interviews. It was clear that they genuinely cared about helping me succeed. Moreover, the agency's dedication to finding the right fit was evident in the quality of positions they presented to me. Instead of inundating me with irrelevant job postings, the recruiter focused on opportunities that closely matched my skillset and career trajectory. This demonstrated a commitment to both the candidate and the employer, ensuring a mutually beneficial match. In terms of communication, Ceres was prompt and responsive. Despite juggling multiple tasks, they made themselves available whenever I had questions or needed assistance. This level of accessibility and attentiveness is often hard to find in larger recruitment agencies. While the small size of the agency may limit its reach in certain areas or industries, the individual attention, personalized service, and dedication to finding the right fit make it a hidden gem in the recruitment world. Working with a single, dedicated recruiter who genuinely cares about your success can be a refreshing and rewarding experience. If you're looking for a recruitment agency that will go the extra mile, providing tailored solutions and a personalized touch, I highly recommend giving this small independent agency a chance. They may have only one employee, but their commitment and expertise make them a standout choice in the competitive world of recruitment.

One of the recruiters part of better days named Carole-Anne who was a huge help in getting me my new job. She gave me the confidence that I think made the difference between me being the best candidate or not I really can’t thank her enough and would recommend the company for anyone looking for an agency that cares and prepares you for that next step. Would definitely come back if I needed to in the future.

Carole-Anne has been an infinite source of support and a bubbly helpful attitude, that really helped me in my journey from applying to a job posting - to being accepted for the role less than a couple of weeks later. I couldn't have asked for a better advocate and guide, and I'm truly thankful that Carole-Anne was with me through it all. 5 stars all the way! Thank you 🙂
