The people here are without a doubt the best recruiters I’ve ever worked with. Over the past three month I was contacted by many recruiters, as I was seeking for new opportunities, constant phone calls with undelivered promises. Lighthouse Personnel were the only ones who followed up as they said they would after so many let downs. They made sure they really knew what I was looking for (even though I didn’t know myself!), what my job experience meant and searched for appropriate fitting opportunities.

Got invited to their Colchester office where Gerard took 3 hours out of his busy schedule to re-create my entire CV after struggling to get past the online applications. Went far and beyond my high expectations, never lost faith in me with consistent weekly check-ups as to how I’m doing as well as putting recruitment fees aside and recommended companies who they wouldn’t get commission from, in order to find me my dream job.

Recruiters are agents and need to know their products as well as their clients needs. Gerard and Sam sure do both exceedingly well, far more than just ‘recruiters’ and I will forver be grateful for everything they’ve done for me.  
This was the first time I had gone through a recruitment agency to get a new job and was not sure what to expect. However, I found the process very thorough and professional and felt that they did everything they could to help me succeed in securing the job role I applied for. This included providing useful information to assist in my research of the company and ensuring I had all the required information about the role to ensure it was the right fit for me. They also kept regular contact with me, fed back any questions I had to the employer and kept me updated throughout the whole process. I felt really well looked after and was very pleased with the service I received. I would highly recommend Lighthouse Personnel Ltd.
A huge thank you to Gerard and all the team, for supporting us with our recent recruitment requirements. Right from the start, the whole team were attentive and communicated well throughout the process. I would definitely recommend this company for recruitment needs. Reliable and professional, thank you, Gerard and all at Lighthouse Personnel.

There aren’t enough words to say how thankful I am to this kind and ever so helpful bunch of people. I felt looked after from the beginning and although I was reticent of recruitment companies when I started my job hunt I couldn’t be happier for having decided to collaborate with them. Gerard and Sam made sure I was always ready for any interview they arranged for me and always gave me the most useful advice and encouraged me so it felt more like a friendship than a client-recruiter relationship- they even kept in touch out of office hours when I needed them!

They always choose to work with companies they believe in and having had an interview with one of these companies recently I obtained a position that is an amazing milestone stone in my career but none of this would have been possible without their hard work and dedication, and them vouching for me. Thank you!
