Candidate Testimonials

I am hugely indebted for the work done by Sarah and Matthew at Laboratory Solutions Recruitment in finding and helping me secure my current professional appointment. I’ve just completed the probationary period in an exciting and successful UK Biotech company, and the simple fact is that without Sarah and Matthew I wouldn’t be here.

Having recently finished a PhD, I had applied for many, many positions independently and registered with a number of employment agencies. With the exception of two first-round interviews, I had been getting very little response despite the large number of letters and applications sent. After picking up my CV, Laboratory Solutions Recruitment were quick to contact me and talk me through a potential position, and briefed me by phone before my first phone interview proper with the Biotech company itself.

This was already more input than I’d received from other recruitment agencies. I also received a phone call before travelling to my face-to-face interview to make sure I was ready and keep my confidence high. Matthew and Sarah also took the time to debrief me and wish me well following the interview and initial job offer – and furthermore negotiated a much better salary for me than I would have thought to do so myself once the offer had been made.

I cannot recommend Laboratory Solutions Recruitment highly enough and am greatly indebted for their friendly and approachable professionalism. I would use them again without a second thought and would encourage anyone else to do the same.
