I was graduating University and beginning the dreaded job-search and happened to come across Albany. Lils got in touch and we began talking about my aspirations and where I’d like to be upon graduation. I still had a bit of time left to go on my degree and had plenty of practical event experience: so she suggested we talk further down the line. The email was left in my inbox with a reminder to get back in touch with her soon: but she beat me to it!An email out of the blue sparked a series of events. We met in person and she talked me through the application process, gave me advice and pointed me in the right direction re: my CV and other elements of interview procedure etc, and then started putting me forward for positions.Within a week or so I had an interview, and Lils continued her excellent follow-up record with phone calls and emails to check everything was progressing. From that first interview, I received a second one: and from there I was offered the job.What sets Lils apart from other recruiters I came across is that I genuinely felt she cared about my employment rather than only caring about the vacant role. She was refreshingly honest throughout and gave me advice which had direct impact on the ways in which I approached my interviews. Rather than putting me forward for hundreds of positions in blind hope: she cherrypicked the positions she thought would be right for me (which sounds like common sense but so often isn’t). The attention to detail is so important and Lils nails this.One of my pet hates is sending emails and waiting a long time for replies - fortunately this wasn’t the case with Lils: she replied swiftly and in-detail to any queries I had and I felt supported throughout the process.Thanks for everything Lils!

Lils and the Albany Appointments team are a pleasure to work with. Always maintaining professionalism and enthusiasm, Lils ensures she has gathered as much information about you/your past experience as possible and clearly outlines what it is you are looking for before helping you find your next role. That being said, as a speedy and efficient recruiter, only positions that would be best tailored to your experience and what you’re seeking are sent your way. Feedback is always given openly, honestly and promptly. I've always felt well informed about a role before pursuing an application and I feel Lils' aim is to find you a role at a company in which you would genuinely thrive and enjoy.

When applying for a job, Lils made sure that I had all the information needed and followed up with phone calls to make sure I was happy with being put forward for a role.
