I have been very impressed and comforted by the professional and personal way Ben Cotton has assisted me in first attending interviews then accepting the offer of a new registered manager’s post. This is the first change in job I have undertaken in 25 years and Ben has been very supportive and encouraging throughout this experience.  Thanks Ben!

Ben contacted me to discuss an opportunity that had arisen that he felt I would be a suitable candidate for.  During the initial conversation Ben was very positive about the role and honest about what the company were looking for.  What I found helpful was that he connected my CV and skills to the role that I was being put forward for.  I was also impressed that he had undertaken research on my career.  We agreed that I would be put forward for the position.  He phoned me back promptly confirming date and time of interview and gave me some very useful interview tips.

On the day of the interview Ben text me to wish me good luck and then contacted me after the interview.  Due to Ben’s honesty about the position I felt very prepared for the interview and had an insight into what the company were looking for.  it was this support that led to be being offered the role at interview.

After the interview, many recruitment agencies then lose contact with the candidate but Ben stayed in weekly contact making sure that everything that needed was done on my side.  He also sent a card wishing me well in my new position which I thought was a great personalised touch. He also contacted me in my first week to ensure all was going well.  I feel due to Ben’s dedication and passion for his role and his drive to find the right people for the right role, I have found a job that I am extremely passionate about and cannot thank him enough.
