“Parke Lane People are an exceptional agency to work with. Andy really took the time to understand my needs as a Manager both in skills needed and personality fit within the team. By spending the time with me, I only received candidates that matched my criteria perfectly, which saved me a lot of time reviewing C.V’s. I have employed 2 of Andy’s candidates and they are both a great fit within the team and are proving themselves to be high performers. I highly recommend Parke Lane People.”

“Andy was absolutely great and so helpful in finding a new position for me. Initially, I didn’t give much direction as I didn’t really know where I wanted my career to go next. This can be a daunting place to be, but even in our first conversation, he put me at ease and I really felt like he understood me and the type of role I would be suitable for. Straight away, he found me a position and was always on hand for support through the interview process, making sure he checked in at every stage. I enjoyed chatting with Andy and felt he went above and beyond to get me the right outcome. Thank you so much to Andy and the team at PHP for everything!”

“Andy at Parke Lane People successfully helped me find a new role and I would not hesitate to recommend Andy and his team. Having spent nearly a decade with my last employer, I was keen to gain some broader experience and find a new role. With this in mind I had some specific criteria, which I discussed with Andy, and he quickly managed to set up an interview with a firm he thought might be of interest. He really hit the nail on the head and I was offered the job as a Commercial Finance Analyst with a company I’m very excited to work for. Andy listened to my needs, understood my position and what I was hoping to achieve and quickly arranged an interview for a role that matched my criteria. To this end it was an extremely efficient process, and I am very grateful to Parke Lane People for their help with my career. Andy was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend.”
