I was new to Manchester from Canada on a visa and looking for a job during the COVID lockdown. After speaking with 30+ recruiters, Suzanne Edmonds of SquarePeg & Associates was a breath of fresh air! She knew the Northwest market, was familiar with the marketing jargon (my specialty), gave me a realistic but positive analysis of the current hiring situation and gave me actionable advice to improve my job search.
Specifically, Suzanne recommended I post a video on LinkedIn introducing myself to recruiters by explaining who I was, what I'm good at, and what I'm looking for. After doing this, my LinkedIn views grew by 409% in the first week and an additional 16% in the second week. By the third week, I had a job! What are you waiting for? Get on the phone with Suzanne!

My experience with Square Peg has really helped me move forward with my career change, the support given throughout the process from my first interview until the start of my new job has been a quick and easy process. Jenni was super supportive throughout my journey and guided me through the interview stages with enthusiasm and positivity at all times, and communication was excellent as Jenni kept me updated with positive encouraging feedback. I would highly recommend Square Peg for a thorough, friendly and positive experience. Thank you Jenni and Suzanne.

I have had a really exceptional experience with Square Peg. Within seven days of my first phone call from Jenni (who has been helpful, friendly and professional), I had received a firm offer of employment with a great company. They clearly have access to a range of excellent employers, and positions with real prospects.
I cannot recommend Square Peg highly enough, and have already told several of my friends to get in touch.

Thanks again and take care.

Square Peg has been an amazing recruitment company to deal with. Suzanne has been professional but friendly and helpful at the same time. She kept in contact throughout the interviewing process, giving me interview tips and she has even checked up on how I was feeling before I started my employment which was something that no other company has done before. It has overall been a great experience and I will recommend this company to anyone looking for an employment.

Fantastic end to end service. Would definitely recommend and use them again.
SquarePeg got me into a job in less than 3 days after calling me to offer an interview. Very fast, efficient and very friendly staff that went out of their way to help me out and answer anything I needed to know. Would recommend to anyone.
Square Peg helped me get my first full-time role! Having just graduated I was quite new to the process of applying for jobs but they offered me so much support, giving me great tips and recommending specific areas to research before my interview. It only took 2 days from their first response to my application to me being told I had the job, I couldn't believe how fast the whole process was!

I was casually looking for work when I was approached by Jennifer at Square Peg in relation to a Senior Graphic Designer role that she felt I was well suited. Turns out she was right and I got the job! Jennifer and Suzanne were fantastic, really supportive and had some top tips about the proposed company and interview stage. During the process they wished me good luck and kept me up to date at all times. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Square Peg as they couldn’t have been more supportive and professional, thank you so much Jennifer!

Jennifer was very professional yet approachable and assisted me very well on finding a sutiable job role.
From chosing a role that intresed me to arranging interview times was very quick, i got supported and wished "good luck" on the day followed by more support. I'm now joining a new company to start my career - not just a job. Jennifer was genuinely happy for myself, making looking for a job more enjoyable.

I found Square Peg to be a very professional recruitment agency. Dealing with Suzanne and Aaron was a pleasure. I had informal facetime meetings with Suzanne which put me at ease and gave me a good feeling for the agency and the role that we were discussing.
I would recommend Square Peg for future recruitment as they really do know the companies they represent and have a sound understanding of the role you are applying for.
Reply from Square Peg Associates - Recruitment Specialists: Thank you so much Karl. It took quite a while from our first initial chat through to you starting the role though it was great to keep in regular contact and I am so happy that you are now in situ and enjoying your new role. I am sure that you will make a big impact. Thank you for your kind review. Suzanne

They were so lovely, Kim really made me feel comfortable and chatted to me like a friend! she constantly kept me updated and gave me loads of advice! Square Peg arranged everything and now i have a job doing what i love. They literally did everything for me without me even having to ask!

I applied for a role with Square Peg Associates on Friday morning, I was contacted less than 2 hours later and went through a full registration. I had been offered another role with immediate start for the following week but it was slightly too far and I wasn’t “hooked”. I had a lovely chat with Jenni who noted exactly what I was looking for, however I only had that day to interview as I was due to start my new role. Jenni secured an interview for me that afternoon and made the client aware of my currently circumstances, I was offered the role with an immediate start! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Square Peg with their efficient but personable approach!
