I’d spoken with Marcel on multiple occasions about a sense of unease I was feeling in my previous position, and a lack of progression or responsibility thus leading to demotivation and eventually an inevitable career change. He managed to convince me not to make any rash decisions without consultation, which, from my perspective was awe-inspiring as he was willing to take the time to help me and listened tentatively. His advice was incredibly useful as when most people are in a position of discomfort they generally jump at any opportunity. We’d spoke on many occasions about specific types of jobs that would be of interest and he went out on a whim for me to research and also push through the pipeline the position at my new employer. He sped the process up by poking the theoretical beehive, being the recruitment agent at the company, to get me an interview and basically made the entire process of job swapping an absolute breeze. As a professional I can only give him the utmost respect for the dedication he puts in for First Call and I hope him nothing but the best for the future. I personally have recommended him to people who are looking at potential career transitions or company moves. Thank you again for the help first call have provided and the service. P.s. the Cupcakes were delicious and a lovely touch as always!

I would like to thank Dion for all of his help in finding me a new job, for being so understanding during a difficult time in the beginning and never giving up in finding the right job to suit me, Dion has a very caring nature and listens to what people want out of a job. I appreciate all the help and confidence he has given. I would definitely recommend Firstcall to anyone who is looking for a new career.
First Call were fantastic in helping me find the next step in my career.

Really pleased with my experience with First Call. Dion has been brilliant throughout, maintaining a very attentive service and helping me obtain a very well fitting position in a short space of time. After working within the same sector for 8 years looking for a change was a challenge due to my lack of experience in the sector I wanted to move in to so I am very happy Dion was able to help me achieve this. Over all the team at first call have a very friendly, yet professional attitude and I would highly recommend using them as your agency! Thank you first call!

It was such a pleasant experience working with Firstcall Recruitment. What stood out for me is the speed at which they were able to get me interviews and their efficiency. Within a few weeks I received an interview and shortly after I started my new job.
Marcel has been a fantastic agent. Having returned from Australia to Guernsey he has helped me through what have could been a daunting task to an easy transition back to the Island. I have secured temping work within a week of being on Island. Thank you Marcel for your support and help. Look forward to the future and would not hesitate to recommend 1st Call Recruitment .
I've used a few recruitment agencies over the years, Firstcall has by far been the best out of the bunch for me. Very helpful staff from start to finish, namely Marcel & Samantha. Would highly recommend to all seeking employment.

I found the staff at Firstcall Recruitment very friendly and helpful. Silvi was especially helpful pointing me in the right direction and giving me the confidence to apply for a job that was completely new to me, I would have no hesitation in recommending Firstcall Recruitment to my friends and family.

Silvi and the team at Firstcall did a fantastic job helping me find a new role in the summer of 2017.
I first made contact with Silvi a couple of years ago when I was considering my career options and he kept me up to date with recent developments in the job market from that date forwards.
When at the end of 2016 I knew I would need to be searching for a new role around June 2017 I asked Silvi to keep a look out for me.
True to his word Silvi kept an eye on the market for me and got in touch around May time to say a role I was perfect for was about to be placed on the market.
I am now in that role and really loving the new challenge.
Silvi's attention to detail, his knowledge of the market and his ability to make contact at the right time is second to none and I fully recommend and value the effort he puts in to find candidates the right role for them.

I was recommended to this agency through a friend; as soon as I got in contact with Firstcall, I felt like I was treated exactly how I'd want to be, respectfully! The whole aspect of this agency is incomparable to all the other recruitment businesses on the island, as I have experience in dealing with almost all of them, Marcel did everything he could when it came to job offers, he was also understanding, polite, open minded and always coming back with positive updates. I'm very thankful to him for all his help, and thanks to him I was successful in finding a position which has worked for me, I'm happy I followed his honest help and advice.
When the time comes and I am need of finding further work if need be, without any hesitation, Firstcall is the only place I'd go to, I feel that as well as providing me with professional advice, a position and as well succession, the agency has a warm re-welcoming approach and reputation which I'd feel more than happy to go back to. Personally, I think Firstcall take seriously what the people want and feel would be right for them in a potential role, which is what anyone wants when they approach an agency.

The service provided to me by Firstcall was excellent. I contacted the agency to demonstrate my interest in an advertised role, and during the same day I was contacted by Dion Salmon to run through further details. The lines of communication were very open, with timely responses. I would highly recommend using Firstcall.

I have been delighted by the service offered by Dion at Firstcall. Responding to my initial contact within a couple of hours, Dion immediately arranged for a meeting in which he offered a thorough and friendly service, showing great instincts by suggesting a position which I then went on to gain a week later. I would have no hesitation recommending Dion to anyone seeking a job in Guernsey, not least due to his polite and social demeanour, and a good ability to assess his candidates assets, matching them accordingly.
Marcel and first call were great. Lots of help and support to prepare me for interviews as well as for starting a new job. Anytime I had a question they were quick and willing to help. Highly recommend.

Dion at Firstcall was brilliant, couldn't recommend enough! This was completely new to me as I was moving from the UK to Guernsey so it was all a bit daunting but Dion was so helpful. He made the process that much easier and found me the perfect job! Very grateful for all your help & I would highly recommend Firstcall.

From my personal experience at Firstcall I can honestly say it was life changing, they constantly kept me updated with all vacancies that became available that suited my profile. My consultant Dion was an amazing help, he offered me insight and support from filling in the application form to interview techniques. I can also say that it was a surprise when I found out he was a trainee and not a fully qualified member of staff due to his professional attitude and knowledge. I will be sure to definitely recommend Firstcall to my friends and family.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Firstcall Recruitment and in particular Dion who have helped and supported me these past few weeks. They were always on hand to give both advice and support when I was looking elsewhere for employment. They are a friendly group of people who always try and give you the best opportunities that are available, again I can’t stress this enough a big thank you to everyone at Firstcall.

Marcel at Firstcall Recruitment has done an amazing job in helping me move jobs when the time was right for me. He helped me get my first job when I was a school leaver and 7 years later he's found me a job which I'm hoping is the best career for me. He was always there to help and support me, either a phone call or email away to ask advice. He gave me pointers on what kind of questions I will get asked in the interviews and also provided me with websites and information he knew about the companies to give me insight into what the companies are about. He also sat with me to go through the interview process and gave me pointers and guidance on how to tackle questions that most interviewers ask regularly so I wasn't put on the spot. We also discussed what questions I should be asking and if I got to the second interview what I could follow up with. I really appreciated him getting me both of my full time jobs, and also the fact that he still keeps in touch to make sure everything is going well.

As a client of the business I feel it is very important to express my gratitude towards the hard work that Dion has put in to my recruitment process. I'm happy to say he has been most attentive and I'm over the moon with his performance as my recruitment consultant. I couldn't have asked for a more polite and caring person to help me prepare for new employment. Overall I feel the service is excellent and I cannot find fault with how brilliant it's been.
Thank you so much Dion.

Cannot recommend the guys at Firstcall enough! I have been with a number of different recruitment offices over the years but never have they been as good as my experience with Dion at Firstcall. You’re kept in the loop at all times, not forgotten! And if like me you don’t have all that much experience with office related roles they really help boost your confidence before going for interviews. Really can’t thank them enough! Andddd you get cake! Always a bonus, much love guys!
As someone who had only experienced a single workplace, the prospect of leaving my first job was quite daunting! I wanted to ensure that the next step I took was the right one for me but I didn't know where to start. I was recommended Firstcall by a friend and was put in touch with Marcel and went from there. I met with Marcel and discussed everything from reasons for leaving my old job, what I was looking for in a new job and expectations of the local job market. Firstcall assisted me in creating a professional CV and profile based on my experience in the industry which would appeal to employers. I was provided with job descriptions in various roles at numerous local businesses and was updated regularly on progress with enquiries. I was briefed before interviews to help me ensure I was well prepared and asked the right questions for me to make the best decision for me. Firstcall were very proactive and professional and listened to my needs first. It was refreshing to speak to someone of a similar age in Marcel who could associate with my experiences and who seemed genuinely motivated in doing so and was more than happy to help. I would definitely recommend Firstcall to anybody looking for new career opportunity!
