Josiah and the whole team at Firstcall were absolutely fantastic in helping me find my desired role. I feel very lucky to have had their support and it has been brilliant to find an agency that genuinely wants you to progress and succeed in your professional career. They ensured I was updated at every stage of the entire recruitment process. Josiah spent lots of time with me prior to my interviews, going through possible interview questions in as much detail as possible to make sure that I was adequately prepared. Throughout the process, Josiah was always available to answer any questions and make sure that everything went smoothly. Many thanks to Josiah and the team for such brilliant services! Would highly recommend them.

Working with Firstcall, specifically Marcel, has been a pleasant experience. He takes the time to get to know you personally as well as your career goals to understand what role/company will be the right fit. I was provided updates and feedback regularly and he ensured ongoing contact between myself and my new employer for the smoothest transition possible.
Should I require the services of a recruitment agency again in the future, Marcel will be the first person I call.

Firstcall was the first recruitment agency I've worked with that went out of their way to provide me the best possible service and the greatest odds at being chosen for a job. They held my hand all the way through, making sure I'm prepared for interviews and giving me much needed feedback and advice when I had any doubts. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a more personalized approach to looking for jobs - not only are they incredibly professional in the work that they do, they also care about learning more about you, so they can make your CV not only reflect you and your values perfectly, but also make it as appealing to employees as possible.

Marcel was brilliant to work with. He is not only professional and knowledgeable, but he is also kind and makes you feel like you are more than just a job placement, you’re a person looking for your perfect work family. Marcel always understood that although I am a dedicated professional who loves my career, I am also a mom and that is the most important part of my life. Marcel connected me with an employer who not only understands that but who respects it. It is refreshing to have worked with someone like Marcel who understands that we spend half our life in the office, so finding “the perfect one” when it comes to a profession and employer is very important.
They are after all our family away from home. Marcel has an aptitude for striving to satisfy the client and delivered on what he promised. I would highly recommend Marcel as your career adviser.

Very professional company. I was fortunate to be in a position where I could be patient and wait till the right job came along, as I was sure it would. Leanne was very supportive and gave really helpful advice. I would thoroughly recommend Firstcall Recruitment

I was introduced to Marcel at Firstcall last year through a friend as I was thinking, but also unsure about leaving my current employment which I had been at for many years. Instead of being 'pushy' as some recruitment agencies can come across as, he asked why I was unhappy with in my current job and took the time to understand what I wanted to achieve. Marcel listened and we kept in contact for many months and waited until I was ready to make the big step. Because he knew exactly what my skills were and what I was looking for to progress in my career path, he set up interviews perfectly suited to me (and during lockdown). I was also given advice before the interviews and was updated regularly with feedback.
Unfortunately my first job did not work out. I contacted Marcel again and he prioritised me to find me something quickly and since he already knew my skills and what I wanted, he set up again many interviews/opportunities suited to me. Within a week I was offered a new job with excellent careers prospects. I am so happy and grateful for Firstcall for all their help and have already recommended to them to my friends who are in a similar situation as I was.
Thank you, Marcel and team!

I just simply want to say "THANK YOU" for all these years of assistance and professionalism. Not many recruiters make time to provide candidates with basic job tips, constant feedback and an exhibition of hope as you have done all this while. You demonstrate empathy with consideration to the "HUMAN" element in "Human Resource" whilst maintaining a good relationship with your clients and do not solely focus on just acquiring the "Resource".
It may surprise you to know that in my jurisdiction, I have identified some mutual connections who have also shared similar experiences with you. I am extremely grateful for your support and do hope that your efforts are deservingly recognised by your organization.

Whilst looking for a part time position I contacted Firstcall. Leanne emailed me to arrange to go in and meet with her. Leanne was fantastic, she made me feel at ease straight away and was very helpful. I would definitely use Firstcall again if I was looking for another position.

Jack was excellent from start to finish during my job search. Before looking for any roles he phoned me up to find out a little bit more about me and ask what I was ideally looking for from my next role. He even helped tweak parts of my CV. Jack was swift with his responses and would always phone after interviews which was a nice personal touch. I will refer Jack to any friends looking for new employment.

If I were to describe my experience with Firstcall the words professional and genuinely invested in my career development come to mind. It is one of the best agencies to work with. Josiah was friendly, considerate of my professional goals and timely with updates. Thanks to their help I am now in full-time employment. I am especially grateful for their support which continued even after I was hired. I highly recommend this agency!

Jack was really helpful in sending me roles that were relevant to my skills and that met my requirements. As well as this Jack was brilliant at arranging and preparing me for interviews. He was very clear as to what I need to showcase in interviews as well as focusing on my key strengths. I would highly recommend Jack to anyone who is looking for a role to develop their career or looking into a new career.

Josiah from 1st Call Recruitment, has been helping me find contract roles for the past 4 years. Because he took the time to get to know me and listened to what i did and didn't like at our initial meeting, combined with his innate ability to know just what roles are right for me, he has helped me find the perfect position every time, with no pointless interviews chasing jobs that just weren't suitable. He is always checking up that everything is going Ok, and he is a pleasure to work with.

I decided that it was time for a new adventure within the financial industry. After talking to a friend he recommended Firstcall and also Chris Holt as a recruiter. I can honestly say that what you say matters to Chris and that he had my best interest in mind when looking for new opportunities. Nothing was too much of a bother for him, and he always made time, accommodating meetings for when it best suited me. He is very professional yet approachable, honest and helpful, and the most important thing I found was that he involves you in the process by talking to you every step of the way. I would definitely recommend the company as 5/5 stars, and Chris Holt to anyone that’s thinking of wanting a new career.

Jack is a big mind. He thinks about things that the rest of us overlook. As a result, he has successfully helped me finding a great place to work and has been advising me the all way. Jack has been guided by my wish in finding not only a job but a happy and positive work environment. Thank you Jack, you are truly great at helping people finding their dream jobs.

I contacted Jack a few months ago, as I was looking for a new role. After my initial consultation, Jack contacted me with a role, suitable to my skill set and he managed to secure an interview for me, again, he offered his guidance throughout this process. Since then, Jack has periodically ‘checked in’ on me, and has continued to remain helpful throughout the early stages of my new career. I would happily recommend Jack.

Thank you to Chris at FirstCall for making my job hunting experience as easy as it could be. I had been with my employer for 12 years since I left school so found the prospect of looking elsewhere very daunting, however Chris put me at ease straight away during our initial meeting. From then he was always keeping me informed, proactive and I always felt like he had my best interests in mind when discussing opportunities that became available. He supported me with tailoring my CV for the roles that became available, interview practice and after I was offered the role he continued to touch base with me on a regular basis and supported me whenever needed. Would highly recommend Chris and FirstCall, thank you for your help!
