    Testimonials

    What our customers and clients have to say about us

    Lawyer Sitecore
    Senior Director Legal Counsel
    "Abby is a top-class recruiter with 'off the charts' emotional intelligence. You get the feeling that she doesn't try to offer you a role unless you're not only a good fit for the job but also a good fit for the organisation. She never tries to fit a 'round peg in a square hole' and I think this is a large part of why she is so successful. By doing this the employer and the employee are both happy. I have no hesitation recommending Abby (and the team -Lauren etc.) to any prospective employer or candidate/employee. That's why I already have recommended many candidates to Abby. You should too."

    "I highly recommend Lauren and her team. Not only was she keen to move around our first meeting because I had to pick up my son at the last minute, she had also read every line of my resume and provided me with a perfect matching new role.

    I really appreciated how Lauren took the time to call me at every step, giving me advice and constantly keeping me updated throughout the process. I felt in safe hands from day one and I had no doubt that I would be joining a great company. I would give them 10 stars if the option was available."
    Sales Operations Tech Giant
    Sales Operations Leader
    "Abby reached out to me when I was not actively looking for a new opportunity. She listened to my frustrations with my current role and presented an excellent opportunity for me to consider. Abby was an excellent source of knowledge on the company she was working with, able to tell me a great deal about the business culture and the job. I felt supported from the start and although the process was lengthy she kept in touch to answer any questions and reassure me with feedback and advice. When the offer came she went back and forth until we were all aligned.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Yellow Bricks recruitment for those seeking a change of job."

    "I worked with Lauren when I was approached by the Yellow Bricks team about a potential job opportunity that successfully became a new job offer. Lauren was absolutely fantastic to work with, in the run-up to each interview round she would check in with me and we went over a general plan together as well as passing on some questions that might be asked. I can confidently say that I have never felt more prepared for an interview. As a Recruitment Partner, Lauren is incredibly knowledgeable, diligent and thorough. However, what shines through is Lauren’s passion for seeing her candidates succeed. From the first contact, all the way to signing the contract Lauren made herself available to answer any questions or offer advice. Massive kudos to Lauren and the rest of the Yellow Bricks team, you have been an absolute pleasure to work with."

    "I had the pleasure of working with Abby as she recently placed me in a new job. Everything was carried out with the utmost clarity and professionalism. Abby provided hasty responses to any questions I had and was courteous and concise in doing so. Couldn’t recommend Abby enough."
    Customer Success Manager Tech Startup
    CSM in Software
    "Over the years, I have work with several recruitment agencies, few good ones i stayed in touch with, but, a lot of bad apples that ruin the reputation of other agencies (typically the bigger names) who do not cover the basic principles of the industry and human interaction. Yellow Bricks fall in that excellent recruitment agency to work with category. It wouldn't have mattered if i was successful at getting a job through them or not, the entire process was just fantastic, they are very thorough, make you feel like you and what you want/need matters and ultimately constantly keep you updated throughout the process even just to say ''please bear with us, we're still chasing the client for feedback'' that makes a tremendous difference as opposed to disappearing. But also it's a very open and mature environment where they'd tell you if the client is talking to candidates that have stronger profiles and better fit and whether it would make sense to pursue different opportunities. I recommend them 100%."

    "I had a fantastic experience with Yellow Bricks Recruitment. They were professional and friendly from our first connection and remained so throughout the entire recruitment process. Not only have they provided me with a great new role, but they were also a pleasure to deal with. I appreciated the humanity they showed from start to finish, which is not something you often find with recruitment agencies! I highly recommend them."

    "Yellow Bricks are a fantastic agency, they found the perfect job for me and are always friendly and approachable. Throughout the pandemic they made sure I was put on furlough, giving me and my family reassurance during a very difficult time for everyone. I can't thank them enough for all their hard work."

    "Having introduced herself through some creative marketing Abby was quick to understand the business and people challenges faced by my organisation. She has a professional approach to recruitment, delivers on her commitments and is easy to work with.

    "I had the pleasure of working with Abby while I was looking for a new challenge and decided to apply for her role at Talend. Abby was amazing. She is an experienced professional, and her enthusiasm and positive attitude made the extensive interview process much more agreeable than it would have been with somebody less dedicated. She was highly responsive and made sure that I always felt like an esteemed candidate and not as just any number on a list of interviews. She's a real asset for any recruiting organisation and can wholeheartedly recommend her.

    When hiring for me, the team are always able to quickly understand the needs of the business and the key attributes of the candidates I need in what have been niche positions.

    The quality of their screening always impresses me as I don’t get a lot of unsuitable candidates submitted. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Yellow Bricks, in fact, I often do!"

    "I owe a big thank you to Bertie and the Team at Yellow Bricks for helping me kick start my career. The communication, guidance and patience they have are outstanding and I am very grateful for coming into contact with them. If you know what you want and show yourself to be determined, they will match you with confidence and get you to the job you desire. Anything I needed help with, they provided with such care... and even shared the location of their free parking spots, lol! Once again big up, and thank you!"
