‘Since Adept Care Homes started using Clark James in October 2014, we have sent numerous vacancies to you to put on the various job websites. You have always done this very promptly (usually within the hour) and we have had excellent responses to all the adverts placed and have not had to re-advertise. Adept Care Homes is very impressed with the service you offer and intend to continue to use going forward for all our vacancies within the group. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to new customers’

I just thought I would drop you a line to say that after 9 months advertising elsewhere after three weeks of using your Advantage Package we have finally filled our job vacancies. It was filled by one of the candidates you sourced for me. After so long looking for a mechanic, I was beginning to get really fed up with the huge prices companies charged for advertising on line and their crazy promises. It was refreshing to find a service that was so reasonably priced and realistic about the process.
I have passed your details to another local garage who are also struggling with the costs of advertising for staff’
I have used Clark James for of vacancies.
Previously we have worked with high street recruitment agents or we have done a combination of media advertising and use of our own website.
Using Clark James has proved not only to be a much cheaper option, but has resulted in a higher amount of applications than we have previously managed to achieve, due to the amount of online portals used.
These applicants have been mainly from good quality candidates with relevant qualifications and experience, which has not been my experience when dealing with some recruitment agents and job centres, where a high proportion of applicants are entirely unsuitable for the roles being offered.
Add to this ease of placing the advert and then having the applicants emailed directly into my inbox, and I am unlikely now to return to our previous methods for any future recruitment needs.

I came across Clark James when I was looking for a recruitment agency to source a new member of my team. I was really drawn to the Fixed Fee solution and I am over the moon with how it has worked for my company.
I have now used the Fixed Fee option on many occasions to recruit office staff and on each occasion I have enjoyed the same level of service. I started off discussing each role with Caroline, understanding the position and laying out the advert to highlight key points and really make it relevant and be noticeable to the most appropriate applicants. Caroline advised and adjusted the advert until I was happy then posted it on all of the major job search engines. Caroline then went on to vet potential candidates, asked questions on my behalf and gave her feedback according to her perspective.
To be honest I do not think Caroline could have been any more helpful, she was very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend Caroline Wilkinson and Clarke James for this service and their professional attitude. For me the fixed fee option was a no brainer and with Caroline’s help worked better than any other recruitment consultancy I had previously used. Just a simple one off upfront fee no fixed percentage of the new recruits’ annual salary etc. In fact with the last vacancy the calibre of candidates was so high I took on two employees and created a new role for the additional person.
Great company, great service!
