Candidate testimonials

Great company. James Fowler is the most professional and skilled recruiter I have ever worked with. I have never been so well Informed and prepared for an interview. He took the time to understand me and my needs, not just throw any old job to get a fee.

I am now in the new role, and it was exactly as described, and a fantastic role. If you are looking for a good recruiter, who has your best interests at heart, then look no further.

James Price | Business Development Manager

Jenni Booth – what an amazing lady! J2 recruitment should be more than proud to have such a professional colleague who has been with me from the start of my application right through until I was accepted for the position.

Following her advice and instructions made it possible for me to sail through the interview and get the job. I am so thrilled with the service I was given by Jenni and when she said she was going to phone me or email or get in touch with the company…she did so… with enthusiasm and passion as she so feels for her candidates. 5 *s is not enough for you!

Angela Whitfield | Business Advisor

What a fantastic experience I have just had over the past 72 hours working with Jenni Booth from Fintelligent.

Filled in an application for a good job on Sunday evening. Completed a phone interview with the extremely professional, friendly and helpful Jenni on the Monday. Took her advise smashing the interview on the Tuesday morning and got offered the job Tuesday afternoon.

I am elated. I would highly recommend J2 and especially Jenni however I must say a second gentleman I spoke with was very friendly, professional, helpful and interested too.

Shaun Mcloughlin | Case Manager

Awesome team.

Not like other recruitment agencies, these guys actually care about you as an individual.

One thing that sets them apart if the levels of encouragement and confidence they instill in their candidates.

Have helped me find more than one role.

Xander Young | Compliance Officer

A quality conversation with Jenni was the start of my new career. A change which was needed and no-one had faith!

I just couldn’t get anywhere in the industry i wanted to be in. A call between myself and Jenni led to a couple of tests, an interview and a job within a week or so. I cannot tell you how thankful I am.

Recruiters that listen, lots of updates, getting to know what makes you tick. These are the qualities of Jenni and Fintelligent. I cannot praise her enough for what she has done for me. Highly recommended is an understatement. She was with me every step of the way with encouragement.

Amanda Foster | Mortgage Advisor

I was contacted by Tom Littlewood from Fintelligent regarding a position in Hertfordshire. Over the years I have had many conversations with Recruitment agencies only to find that they do not follow up or keep you informed.

I am very pleased to say that Tom spent a lot of time discussing the role with me and keeping me updated throughout the recruitment process to a successful conclusion. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom Littlewood at Fintelligent.

Ann Young | Candidate

Tom is a dedicated, knowledgeable and approachable professional. I’ve had many conversations with Tom throughout my job search, and fired a constant barrage of queries at him.

He was always patient and demonstrated genuine concern/interest towards my priorities and overall success. I would undoubtably recommend Tom to anyone seeking employment opportunities. I hope to work with you again from an employer’s perspective in the near future. Thank you again.

James Healy | Compliance Officer

Working with Tom to get my new role was a fantastic experience. Navigating the world of recruitment can be frustrating at times and finding someone who is both informed in the industry and reliable is a difficult task.

Tom took me from role advertisement to hire in a very professional manner. He understood his clients requirements and was able to help me understand what they were looking for, this allowed me to demonstrate what skills I would be able to bring during the interview process.

After accepting the role, Tom ensured all was ready for onboarding into the business.

Having worked with various recruiters over 13 years as both applicant and client I have not found a more professional individual.

Paul Rennie | Regulatory Compliance Consultant

Tom has been fantastic throughout my job search. He took the time to keep me regularly informed on every step of my search and was totally supportive from profiling the role, arranging interviews and finalising my job offer.

I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Gareth Ward| Candidate
