We have used Jones Recruitment for two years now and found Barbara friendly, professional and efficient when trying to recruit new employees for Town & Country Lettings.
We recently used them to recruit a new member of staff for Town & Country Estate Agents too. Many times, we have received calls after the “normal working hours” when decisions and offers were being negotiated, hence no waiting around over a weekend.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Jones recruitment to other companies.
Barbara and her staff are indeed a delight to deal with. It is very appealing to do repeat business with this agency as they offer a non-intrusive service that is not overly sales orientated. Whilst we appreciate that essentially they survive on sales it is very encouraging that they have mastered a sensible level of business acumen and customer servicing to deliver to our needs whilst not seeming to be overly focused on continually contacting us and distracting us on what we as a business need to manage and turn our attention to.
We feel that in outsourcing a vacancy with an external party that the relationship we and the agency have built up, it is almost an extension of our very own values and ethics. We feel that our business is not compromised at any times. Prospective applicants furthermore are screened in accordance with The PRP Group’s very own recruitment and selection criteria. We look forward to a happy, long and prosperous relationship with this agency.

Our experience with Jones recruitment has always been positive as they demonstrate a professional approach, an ability to respond quickly to our resourcing requirements whilst also creating that personal touch. They very quickly developed an in-depth understanding of our industry along with our company culture, which has proved invaluable when matching suitable candidates to our vacant roles.
I agreed to provide a thorough and detailed resume of the type of candidate we wanted to 7 recruitment consultants including Barbara Jones Recruitment. Barbara was the only consultant who wanted to know more about our business, how we worked, the type of staff we currently employ, the marketplace we deal within, our future ambitions as a company and most importantly who listened to our requirements of the person most likely to fill the roles we had available because she provided two experienced candidates who we interviewed and whom had the relevant experience. Every other consultant sent me people who they thought would be ideal for the roles but in fact were completely out of their depth, had no relevant experience and it seemed to me other recruitment consultants were only interested in sending numerous unsuitable applicants rather than the quality we desired.
My time was wasted because applicants hadn't been briefed on the roles available nor did they do any research about Lang & Co. I will only use Barbara in the future because what I ask for I know we will get even if it takes time to find the "right" person.
She has impressed us on every level of her service and is always one step ahead. She knew what we needed and delivered each time by filling our last 2 vacancies. I have no doubt Jones Recruitment will continue to prosper and give the same exceptionally high-standard of service to future clients and candidates.
We received a very specialised and professional service. Most impressive to us was the speed in which Jones Recruitment responded to our needs, pre- selected the right people for us to interview and built strong relationships with the decision makers within the company.
It was evident that there was a genuine interest in the needs of their clients and we found Barbara very receptive and an excellent and supportive ‘sounding board’ when wanted to further discuss applicants and how they might fit into our organization.
We have just offered employment to five applicants and are extremely happy to recommend Jones Recruitment.
After our initial phone conversation Barbara called out to our office to meet with me, have a look at our office and the current team to assess our needs for suitable candidates. Barbara listened, observed and offered advise on how we should proceed with the advertising.
Barbara was very professional, friendly and positive in the processes and made me feel very comfortable and positive she would find me the right candidates to fill the roles we had available.
Barbara was very thorough in her search and selected the candidates who best fitted the criteria we had set out. Upon testing and interviewing Barbara then arranged for the candidates to come out and see me immediately.
To date Barbara has successfully found me two candidates that have become valuable team members of our Customer Service team and another is due to start early next week.
I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone else who was recruiting new personnel. Her attitude is always positive, she is reliable, courteous, professional and very friendly. She follows through, even when the candidates have been placed, Barbara has called out to visit us on a couple of occasions with 'morning tea' to follow through to ensure I am happy with the candidates and the candidates have settled into their new role.
a) make the time to come out and see me some months back. You are the only Adecco rep that has been in contact with me in my time at PRS, and I feel as though we have developed a great working relationship, one I'd like to see continue in to the future.
b) look for the candidates that you felt "fit" our organisation, and not just send me whoever you might have on your database.
c) keep in contact with me without being "in my face". Please continue to do so.
I have always preferred to develop an ongoing working relationship with an agency that I can depend on, rather than shopping around, as I feel it is a mutually beneficial way to conduct business. I hope to continue working with you in the future after we have filled the Assistant Accountant role.
Once again, thanks for being such a great ambassador for the Recruitment industry (not an easy task!) and to Adecco.
I received perfect customer service, she was very friendly, caring and giving attention to every detail. She prepared me for an interview with employer and now I have my dream job, many thanks to Barbara Jones.
This was a departure from my previous experience of other recruitment agencies. Jones Recruitment approaches candidates with the same dedication as clients, ensuring that the ‘best fit’ is reached for both parties. In the daunting world of job hunting, Barbara gives warm and friendly support, which doesn’t end just because a position is filled. I felt her personal concern for me and she kept both me and my new employer well informed throughout the recruitment process. I also appreciated her guarantee of continued support following my employment. I can definitely recommend the services of Jones Recruitment.
The advice they gave was good, and the fact theyu did the searching for me saved me a lot of time and hassle and ultimately landed me a job I enjoy.
Barbara responded to my emailed application within the hour where we discussed the position which was available.
I found Barbara to be extremely professional & easy to talk to. We spoke about the requirements of the position & what would be involved in the job as this was going to be a new career for me so I had a thousand questions which I wanted to know the answer to! During the company interview stages Barbara kept in regular contact with me offering help & guidance wherever possible.
I got the job and have enjoyed the experience of starting a new career and a new challenge.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Barbara Jones recruitment to anyone in the future & found them to be an extremely friendly & professional company to work with.
