Tara was a fantastic help when it came to getting my current role.
Very supportive with a genuine interest to help, I would recommend anyone to use her or the team at Recruiter Republic in the future.
MATTHEW SOMMERVILLE - TRAINEE CONSULTANT
I honestly could not recommend Tara highly enough! She took the time to really get to know me as a person, knowing me better than I know myself in some cases. She provided paramount advice from the onset, advising me with a career choice that I feel will most definitely change my life for the better. Tara then enhanced my CV, emphasizing and highlighting the areas such as my academic qualifications, skills and my characteristics, ultimately producing a winning CV. The depth of Tara's understanding, knowledge and connections within the recruitment industry was priceless, short listing selected clients to match my ambitions as well as my requirements. After conferring with Tara about the type of work environments that suit me best, she decided to push forward obtaining me several interviews with firms that were not even advertising. I went into each interview confident thanks to Tara’s advice, reassurance and insight. I honestly feel that Tara’s ability to understand me as an individual and her in-depth knowledge of her industry enabled her to find the suitable company for me to pursue a career. Tara is a tremendous asset to anyone looking to progress within their career and has my highest recommendation
CARL NEVEL - ARCHITECTURE GRADUATE
Trying to figure out who the best firms were and the right approach to interviews was quite overwhelming until I met the team at Recruiter Republic. Quite honestly, I felt like I had an Agent who was coaching and advising me and the result was that in a period of just 48 hours I had a full day of interviews arranged with high-calibre firms. I have an accepted an offer with a firm I would not have found on my own and have achieved a starting salary I didn't think was possible. If you're trying to launch your career in recruitment my advice is to go straight to Recruiter Republic they are the only wise choice. Don't try to do it alone!
MOHAMMED TANWEER - LAW GRADUATE
Initially I contacted Tara after having spent a few months in a recruitment firm that, quite frankly, I hated. Somewhat dubious about what to do next she managed to help me understand why my role wasn't working for me and how I would suit a different environment and could do really well elsewhere. My confidence was lost but Tara managed to resurrect it for me! I wouldn't have found any of the firms Tara arranged interviews for me with. If you feel stuck or lost where you are, I recommend speaking to Tara - I couldn't thank her enough.
