Jon McBride – Feb 2010

Hi Jon 
I would like to thank you in spades for all your time and close attention which has resulted in me being offered a great job, with a great company, with a great salary and prospects!   I remember when we first spoke you asked if I would deal with Be Resources exclusively for just a week, and if you didn’t come up trumps then you’d be happy for me to speak with other agencies. Well, in just a couple of days I had the interview arranged, and I was actually offered the job I wanted within a week!   Both yourself and members of the Be Resources team have shown great professionalism and foresight whilst assisting me in my search for a new, challenging career, and actually listened to what it was I was looking for in a job – a rare quality nowadays.   As you know, I have only recently returned from two years working in Japan, and was therefore totally out of touch with the employment situation in the UK, but I was lucky to have found Be Resources.   I hope your business goes from strength to strength and if my experience with you is typical, I’m sure it will. 
Kind regards, 
Jon McBride

Dear Carole.

I would like to thank you for your assistance in placing me in my new sales role.

This is the first time I have used your company and was extremely impressed with the efficiency I experienced and the swift placement!

I have dealt with numerous recruitment agencies before who have not considered the match between candidate and employer. This has resulted in a lot of wasted time, being pushed into interviews and indeed, feeling like a number rather than a person.

NOT the case with Be Resources, I commend you and your team for your consummate professionalism throughout my dealings with your company. I would not hesitate to recommend you to my associates and will definitely be in touch should I require your services again.

Best wishes,

Hi Jon
Id just like to say a massive thank you for all your hard work and support in helping me get a job. Having been looking for work none stop for the last 3 months, i have not had a single recruitment consultant put in the time or effort like you did. Having sent you my CV, you contacted me very promptly, were extremely professional, had a sense of humour!!! Yes, it really is lacking in so many consultants out there. But most importantly, you talked me through the interview process, filled me in extensively about the company and continued to provide me with any help i needed before the interview.
Ive already recommend you to someone i am working with in my temp job and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else i think you could help. Once again thank you so much for your dedication. I wish you all the best and know somewhere down the line i will be ringing you up asking for help again!!
Kindest Regards
Shabana Hussain


Nicola Brown – Nov 09

Good afternoon Jon
W ould like to thank both yourself and Carol for putting my details forward for the opportunity.  I am looking forward to strating my new role and really thriving on my new challenge, moving forward.

I would like to mention that I am very pleased with the service that you have provided and high levels of communication, especially as I have recently been employed in a recruitment position.  I have high standards and appreciate that beResources have met them.  I have contacted several professional recruitment agencies during the last couple of weeks and feel very let down by the poor levels of service and irrelevant communication, such as roles that are not suitable etc.

I believe you have proved that you are a professioanl business by the level of support and employment you supply to clients such as the one you placed me with.

Keep up the good work and I will see you very soon

Best regards

Nicola Brown


Iain Russell – June 09

It only remains for me to thank you again for your amazing effort and hard work in helping me to secure my new position.

I was initially impressed by the speed in which I was contacted by yourselves following my application on Monday, as well as by the in depth knowledge that you displayed regarding the client and vacancy that I had applied for.

However, this was overshadowed by the speed in which you secured me an interview for the role, not to mention the advice and support you provided in helping me to prepare for the interview.

I am delighted to have been successful in my application and cannot wait to start my new role on Monday (all this within a week of applying for the position). All in all, it has been a fantastic end to what was shaping up to be a potentially awful week for me, having learnt that I was to lose my job at the start of it, and I do not underestimate the part that you have played in making this possible.

Thanks again for all of your help and I will not hesitate to recommend beResources to any friends or colleagues that are searching for a move within their careers.


Shane Arnfield – May 09

Dear Jon,

I would not hesitate in recommending beResources.  Found them to be extremely knowledgable and informative.  They are very professional and pleasant mannered.  An exceptional company. A+++ Found me a position in no time.



Beryl Willcox – May 09

Dear Jon,

Just wanted to put in writing a BIG Thank you , Hope you can use this to let other people know how great you are.
I had applied to various different job agencies and have to say that they were at best ok, I wanted to thank you for guiding me through and convincing me to apply for the role I did and the first job I applied for I got and that’s because you took the time to get to know me and place and put me in touch with right company.
I believe you can teach other agencies a thing or to and if there are any companies out there that need help in finding the right candidates or applicants that need help in finding the right job role they would find you, helpful, professional and perceptive.
I want to thank you for your expertise and help your a definite star in my book.
Kind Regards


Jill Cookson – Feb 09

Dear Jon,

Just a few lines to thank you for all your help and support in the last few weeks to secure my position as office manager with XXX

From our initial telephone conversation I realised at that point what a difference beResources and yourself were to other recruitment agencies I have dealt with in the past.

You took time out of your personal life to spend time with me talking through my skills and the role on offer.  Giving me advice on how best present my CV to the prospective employer.

At all stages throughout the process you kept in contact with updates on how the situation was progressing.  I felt totally confident through your matching process that I had the skills to do the job.

I would recommend beResources in every way, your professionalism, dedication & support in all honesty, is outstanding.  Thanks again Jill


Helen Lamb – Nov 08

Hi Jon,

I am writing to thank you for all your support in finding a new job in Macclesfield. Since sending my Cv to Beresources I have found your agency to be professional and felt that you have had both mine and the employers interests at the forefront of your mind. After years in the same industry it has been a long time since I have had to do an interview or applied for a role and I was nervous about doing so. Although with your help I felt well prepared and confident in my ability and was sure i was going for the right role for me. When dealing with other agencies in recruitment I have not had such a positive experience and have felt that the roles I have been put forward for have not always been what I really wanted or what I was suited to. By you taking time talking to me and getting to know my skill base and personality I felt assured that I had the correct skills for the role and that the employer was fully briefed on me.

Again this is a note to thank you personally for all your help and support you have made this process very easy and enjoyable and I look forward to starting my new job


Kathy Howard – Nov 08

Carole – thanks you for all your help and support in helping me get a fantastic new job!

Carole at beResources has been an absolute star! She helped me all the way through the application process – added some of my experiences to my CV and listened to my goals and aspirations. I found her to be leaps and bounds ahead of any other agency, and she has supported me all the way through to getting a placement.

I feel so happy in my new job and its all thanks to Carole.


Ian Templeman – Oct 08

Right from the start of my contact with Beresources, I was impressed by the way that they went about matching my skill set to the positions they had available. They initially put me forward for a job that would have suited me well, but their client company then withdrew the job from the market. However, Beresources remained in contact with me, and continued to give me encouragement that they would find me another suitable position.

Within a matter of weeks, they contacted me about another opportunity, which again was a good match to my background and experience. I was offered the job, and have now been with the company concerned for over five years.

My experience of Beresources is that they genuinely take time to match candidates skills sets to their clients requirements, and won’t waste your time contacting you about jobs that are unsuitable. Their approach is professional, and all their staff have a long track record in recruitment. If I ever enter the job market again, my first call will be to Beresources!

I imagine times are tough in the recruitment game just now, but the cream always rises to the top – which is why you’re still going after all these years.


Timea Lehoczki – Jun 08

Dear Jon,

I am writing to express my heartfelt thanks for all your hard work and efficiency while helping me with the recruitment process for my new role of Sales Support Administrator.

From the very first time of speaking to you all the way through the three stages of the interview selection procedure I felt supported and reassured by you in a highly professional manner, even though it meant that on more than one occastion you had to work outside office hours. Your constant encouragement, practical approach and useful advice meant a lot to me, I have learnt a lot and benefited from your knowledge and experience in the field of recruitment.

Regardless of my nationality, which often undeservedly stands in my way, I have not once felt that you have handled my case with a different attitude. I was treated with respect and given equal opportunities. You have flawlessly fulfilled your clear aim to represent my case in front of your client with a professional and fair approach. I felt that you have grasped my personal attributes, assessed and judged my suitability for the above position in a very realistic and down to earth way.

My personal perception of recruitment agencies has changed and I feel that your exanple is outstanding in your field. I have become richer by seeing what a vital and useful part agencies can play in the sourcing and placement of candidates and how this saves time, money and resources to both the employer and job seeker.

I will no doubt recommend your services to other people in the future.

Let me take this opportunity to wish you further success in your career and all the best in your personal life.


Dennis Rough – Mar 08

Hi Jon, Carol,

Just a line to say thank you for all your hard work in securing my new position and for the lovely card you sent me. It arrived this morning

I don’t think that many agencies could have found a match to an employer for my skills as you have. You really came through and found me the ideal position.
Big thanks to you both for all your efforts in the fine tuning and grooming, I really enjoyed our chats and you were very helpful and professional with your advice which gave me confidence to carry out a good interview.

So far everything seems good and interesting and I am enjoying the change.
Everyone here seems very nice and helpful and is being supportive as I take my baby steps on the learning curve.
The role is covering all the aspects of what I love to do with IT and as such it will never bore me. Although it’s early days I think that I am settling in quite quickly, so I hope to prove my worth and plant my feet firmly under the table.

This position could not have come at a better time for me at this stage of my working career.
I look forward to having a meet up with you both soon.


Karen Roberts – Nov 07

The service of beResources has been exceptional.  The support I had from Ellie and Jon has been very beneficial to me and has allowed me to achieve gaining a customer facing role within the banking sector.  Their help has been very encouraging and professional at all times.  I would recommend anyone to contact beResources as they are very helpful and friendly.  They provide an outstanding service, I could not have got my job without them.


William Wilson – Sept 07

A thank you for your help, support and advice re my application for Maintenance Engineer and thank you for your polite and friendly manner when ever I needed to speak to you.
I am delighted to have been offered the post and feel without your encouragement I would not have got this far.  Your advice to look up the company and find some information about them was really helpful at my interview and the time you gave speaking to me before the interview and when the post was offered to me is really appreciated.

A BIG THANK YOU again for your suport.


Andrew Edmondson

Hi Carole

I wanted to e-mail to say thank you so much for all your encouragement and support with my job search – you have been brilliant. Nav has been great as well, I’ll be giving him a call as soon as I can next week with an update.

I really am so grateful for all the time you have spent talking to me though – I am making the move which suits me best.

I don’t mean to sound cheesy but you really have been an inspiration!!!! I have really enjoyed talking to you and I hope that I can come to you again in the future should I need to.


Ant Hart

Having not applied for jobs in nearly 2 years I was quite “rusty” and my cv and interview technique was looking a bit jaded.

However thanks to Carole and her staff my cv was given a much needed overhaul and I was given a clear insight into what the employer required from the candidate.

Even though I didn’t get the job, I have been thoroughly impressed with your honesty, professionalism and dedication. Keep up the good work”


Mike Ashcroft

Working with beResources and Carole Fossey on my recent appointment to the position of Technical Services Manager has been a pleasure.

Carole and her team have provided excellent advice and guidance through out the recruitment process. The team at beResources provided up to date information at each stage of the process. This allowed an excellent relationship to be built between myself and the recruiting organisation. I highly recommend beResources as a recruiting partner from a candidate prospective.


Noel Huxley – VB Developer with American Golf Discount Centre

After seeing an advert from beITrecruitment on a job search site, I decided to take a different route from my normal “sending a CV and hope for a response” and give it a more personal touch and approach them by phone… and I’m
glad I did.

My previous experience with employment agencies have been very much “another name on the list”. I did not find this to be the case with beITrecruitment.

My initial conversation with one of the recruitment consultants (Jane) was as pleasant as it could be. Throughout the chat I never once felt like “another name on the conveyor belt of hopefuls” as we not only chatted about my previous work experience, we also had a good chinwag and laugh about
anything that came up.

After that I kept in regular contact with Anna Nicholson who (again) I found to be a pleasure to work with. Anna was both terrific to work with on a professional level, and an excellent person to chat to on a more ‘non-business’ level too.

Throughout the period I was in regular contact with beITrecruitment I was kept well informed and up to date of any progress made in my job application (which is now my new place of employment!).

I would personally use beITrecruitment again. I enjoyed the experience.


Michael Farren – SAP SD Consultant with Kone Escalators, Keighley

…Further to our conversation just now, I’d like to thank you for your efforts on my behalf with regard to the Kone job. Though I’m obviously disappointed not to have secured the role, you were highly professional and prompt with information and advice throughout. Perhaps more importantly for me, you were
positive, respectful and encouraging, and not phased by my somewhat unconventional recent career history – which is very different from my experience with a number of other recruitment companies.

I hope that we do have further dealings (leading to a successful placement for me!), but in any case, I wish you and beIT a very prosperous future…


James Bradshaw – SAP Security Consultant – CSC

…Can I just say out of all the recruitment consultants I’ve dealt you are by far the most responsive and helpful…
