This was an emergency interim cover to support extensive work due to a very heavy innovation pipeline. We had very specific requirements and to complicate matters further needed the support immediately to ensure that we delivered all of our projects to hit launch deadlines.
Kerrie was up for the challenge and what I was impressed with was the pace with which candidates were available to review and the good fit against our job spec and values. The whole process took less than 2 weeks from brief through to the candidate starting which has allowed us to meet all of our customers high expectations.
We found ourselves in the position where our SHE manager was unfortunately away from the business at short notice and likely to be for several weeks. Timing was unfortunate as the business was in the process of restructuring many facets of the operation. After speaking with Kerrie and outlining our predicament, within hours I was in possession of a CV for Steve and a very thorough detailed verbal description of Steve’s approach to SHE. Things moved very swiftly, Steve attended site and we quickly confirmed that Kerrie was spot on with the detail and the fit for Steve to our needs.
Steve has been here a few weeks now and made an impact from day 1 and continues to do so. Things are developing at pace and needless to say we are very satisfied with our experience of dealing with Kerrie.
I would recommend Kerrie from Harperanderton 100%. We as a business have used them and Kerrie on numerous occasions and found that they are very professional and react to last minute requests with ease.
The candidates that they use are very efficient and hardworking and would recommend each one we have used to work within any business
I recently made contact with Kerrie during my placement as Interim Technical Manager with Tulip Ltd. Kerrie represented me with the utmost professionalism and actively facilitated a successful client assignment in the face of competition from other recruiting organisations. Kerrie was able to scope the client’s needs based on a clear understanding of the role so I was completely au fait with the role profile and client expectation. At all stages during the negotiations Kerrie provided timely feedback and updates, usually out of hours – nothing was too much trouble for Kerrie and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of my peer group.
I worked with Kerrie recently and can honestly say she is diligent, hardworking, conscientious and has a great eye for detail. Kerrie found the time in her busy schedule to visit site and ensure everything was running smoothly and if I needed any advice calls and e mails were answered very rapidly.
Overall I would highly recommend Kerrie for any recruitment needs you may have and if you are lucky enough to work for Kerrie on a contract then you can rest assured you are in great hands.
Kerrie was able to provide me with a very high level of service very promptly and with a high degree of professionalism. I was very impressed with her capability and heartly recommend her to anyone who is in the need for an interim at short notice.
Kerrie has worked with myself on two contracts now and she has delivered on everything she has promised. Kerrie is always very professional and diligent when we have worked together. She has undertaken a significant amount of research on requirements of the company and who I will be working for. She has been able to network and build up a good rapport with established FMCG companies in the UK. She is always gregarious and accomplished in her line of work. Her work ethic is extremely high as proved by the ease it is to contact her.
I have found Kerrie to be very professional, friendly and realistic when it comes to the dynamics of making interim placements and the details of contract negotiations. A pleasure to work with and has a good work ethic, I would highly recommend her.
