Here's what some of our clients say about us:
Ali came highly recommended to me by a colleague. I hadn’t done an interview for years and she really helped me to overcome my fear of the whole process. She used the job description I sent her to generate a list of interview questions that I might be asked. We then had a session to discuss my examples and Ali gave me really detailed and constructive feedback on the style of my answers which did wonders for my confidence. Following this, we did a practice interview where she coached me to answer the questions accurately and to speak confidently. I was delighted to get through to the second stage of the process which was a scenario based interview and presentation. There was very little notice of this interview, so Ali quickly found a convenient time for me to prepare with a practice scenario based interview. I’d recommend Ali to anyone who wants to prepare thoroughly for an interview. It boosted my confidence to go into the interviews and definitely helped to get me the job!
Niall Hegarty, Live Editor at Sky
My last interview was over 15 years ago so when I found myself in a redundancy situation having to reapply for my job I started to panic. I was informed the interview would be competency based questions. Interview styles have changed so much over the years.
A friend recommended Ali at The Recruitment Team so I gave her the job description, With this she was able to compile a whole range of competency based questions that were specific to the job I was applying for. I had two sessions. The first was going over the questions and thinking about suitable answers. The second session was a mock interview. The interview training was fantastic and it gave me the knowledge, guidance and confidence I was lacking. I got the job!
Adeline Moulden, Studio Director at Sky
"I approached Ali for some interview coaching for a new role. Ali’s approach was friendly and professional; she gave honest constructive feedback and guidance on how to best approach the interview, while providing an opportunity to practise and improve my skills. The session with Ali built my confidence and allowed me to get a feel of a proper interview scenario. It also encouraged me to think about examples I might use in a competency-based interview situation. I got the job!"
Liam Cheek, Senior Audit Associate at KPMG LLP
"Ali helped me prepare for my challenging university medicine interviews. With distance being an issue, she conveniently set up a number of Skype interviews to help me practise not only my communication skills and interview techniques, but also to boost my confidence through performing professional mock interviews. Ali gave really useful, constructive feedback that made a huge difference to my performance on interview days. The Skype interviews were invaluable to me as we went over varied styles of interviews and common questions/scenarios from a traditional interview style to Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs). I felt fully prepared for my assessment days and received 3 offers! I would highly recommend Ali to anyone looking to become more prepared and confident in interviews or brush up on their presentation and communication skills."
