Here is a flavour of how people have found us to work with during previous assignments:

"I first came across Victoria Storer in 2005 when we opened our office in the North East and started recruiting locally. Victoria took time initially to come and understand our business both from a technical and cultural aspect so I always felt my preferences for recruiting were understood. This led to a high success rate of placing candidates with ourselves generally in the mid to senior management level, and Victoria getting the first phone call when a requirement, generally through expansion, arose. I find I can have a frank discussion with Victoria and that she takes on board and responds to feedback when given looking to continually improve levels of service."

"I have worked with Bridget Lee on a number of occasions when she has been asked to source suitable candidates for me. On each and every occasion, Bridget has been excellent, always giving outstanding professional support in helping me in the difficult market of recruiting the right person. Bridget stands out in her profession, for the following reasons:

  • She demonstrates an exceptional level of care and commitment about sourcing for any role.
  • She works closely with her client’s ensuring that she has a thorough understanding of their requirements and needs.
  • She is always very honest, and her advice and guidance can always be trusted.
  • When the client’s requirements for a role are both challenging and difficult to identify suitable candidates, Bridget is both thoughtful and innovative in helping create excellent solutions."

"My relationship with Victoria Storer has developed over the last six years, in which the recruitment requirements for PC Henderson, a Company within the ASSA ABLOY Group have been quite far reaching. Whilst Victoria has seen to her team’s delivery of our permanent recruitment requirements across the full scope of our business, she has worked with me, and our Senior Management team here, to deliver our specialist Executive level appointments personally. It would seem that the method Victoria works to is reasonably simple: she takes time to fully grasp an often complex and demanding technical and cultural brief, she works to a planned schedule, and she keeps us informed throughout the process. However, I do feel that her particular skill is in engaging fully with us as the Client, as it would seem she does with the candidates she shortlists for us. I feel she reads personality, team dynamic and business objectives very well, and she has recruited three key people for us over recent years (Commercial Director, Export Sales Director and a senior New Product Development Manager) with the same level of engagement, judgement and control as I would imagine if she would have if were recruiting them for her own business. "

"I engaged Bridget in Australia on numerous occasions to find technical and management personnel to build and fill gaps in mine management teams. Bridget goes to great lengths to determine the sort of person I'm looking for and then she sets about sourcing them for me. Bridget always presents high quality candidates and offers inventive alternatives if candidate supply is short. Bridget remains in close contact throughout the process and provides me with up-to-date feedback."

Stephen Jeffers, CEO, Norilsk Nickel Australia

"In my dealings with Bridget I found her to be a very friendly, approachable, honest and professional recruitment consultant that certainly did a great job of both promoting me to her client as well as marketing the advertised company/position to me. I would happily make use of her services again when I next wish to change jobs."
