Carousel Consultancy Candidate Recruitment Success Stories

Over the years we have placed many candidates! Read what they had to say about using Carousel Consultancy to aid their job search!
  • I was recommended to Carousel by a friend of mine who they’d help place in a HR role. Although the work I was looking for was specialist, I was assured they would be able to help me. It took time and a lot of patience from Carousel (especially Carole) but they definitely came through. I am now working in my chosen industry and gaining valuable knowledge along the way. I have experienced a few agencies in London and I would not rate any of them as highly as Carousel. Carole and her staff don’t want to just get you a job, they want to get you a career. A* for effort Carousel.

  • Hi Carole, starting my second week today and I just wanted to let you know that it's going really well. Also wanted to say a big thank you for putting me forward for this job.

  • Hi Both, just wanted to drop you both a line as it is just over a year since I left Carousel and started at UBM- my how it’s flown!

    I have really enjoyed my time here as Event Co-ordinator over the last year and have learnt so much and met a lot of brilliant people. I’ve worked on a variety of shows, across the country and abroad and whilst it has been a challenge at times, it’s been very fulfilling!

    I’m delighted to be able to tell you that I am currently working my notice period in my current role as I went for a job and have been promoted internally and will be joining the marketing team I currently work with as Junior Marketing Executive in 2 weeks! Just really wanted to say thanks as without you believing in me in the beginning- I would never have had this opportunity and I really do feel it has been the making of me!

    Hope you are both well, please pass on my regards to all of the ladies at Carousel who know me!

    Best Wishes,

    Kimberley Floyd

  • "I would like to say a massive thank you to Danielle. I'm so grateful for all the help she gave me on my search for my first role within London.  She gave me a lot of confidence in how I should approach interviews and how to be more confident within myself and it really did pay off! I certainly will be recommending her to others and wish Danielle all the best for the future."

  • "Danielle has been absolutely brilliant and extremely helpful in helping find the right job for me. She listened carefully to my wants and needs and proactively found the job that ticked all the boxes. In fact it succeeded the pay, location and the job type I was looking for! I have regularly used agencies but Carousel (and Danielle) is by far the most reliable and helpful and I would highly recommend them to anyone actively seeking work."

  • "I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you to Carole for being so honest in my interview last month, it was a breath of fresh air and certainly has made a difference in how I've approached interviews since. Thanks again for the help you gave me!"

  • "My experience with Carousel has been excellent; the consultants are hard-working and clearly dedicated to meeting the needs of the candidate. I met with Danielle Crees, who is fantastic. I hadn’t even got home from meeting her and she was already contacting me regarding various positions that she would like to shortlist me for! Exactly two weeks on from meeting her I have handed in my notice and am really looking forward to starting my new job! Thank you so much Danielle, and also Valerie, I will definitely be recommending you!."

  • "I would just like to say a massive thank you to Carole and the rest of the Carousel team – from my first visit I was made to feel welcome and at ease, and the support I have been given throughout has been second to none. Thanks to Carousel I am now in a job that I love, and I know the support is still there should I ever need it."

    Lucia S

  • "Carousel were a joy to work with. All members of staff who I dealt with, and in particular Natalie Slater, put me at ease in what could have been an extremely stressful time for me. My needs were always listened to which enabled Carousel to find me my ideal job swiftly. Calls and emails were always returned on time, taking away the hassle of job searching. I would recommend them to any of my friends and family who are about to embark on a job search.”

  • "I was really impressed with Carousel. They understood exactly what sort of job I was looking for and gave me excellent guidance in helping me find employment. I was lucky enough to get a great job after only a couple of weeks' search and I have Carousel and especially Natalie to thank for that. I was really happy with their service and I'd thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for employment."

  • “Lea, I have to say again how much I have appreciated your assistance. On a personal/professional note I have always felt you have looked out for me, life as a temp isn’t always easy! I know it is your 'job', but one done so well and has been such a pleasure to work for you and Carousel over the years.”

    Kelly H

  • “I had been looking for a job for 2 months when I applied to Carousel as I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do, within a week of speaking to Natalie I had an offer for the perfect job. I was provided with an excellent service from both Natalie and Liz and am enjoying my new job immensely! Thanks again!”

    Lauren C

  • “Lea, I just wanted to say thank you so much for sorting out my final salary and holiday pay.
    Most of all, thanks so much for getting me in at Hammerson's.  It's tough and busy but I'm enjoying it.”

    Lauren H

  • “As an actor it is difficult to find flexible work and so temping seemed the ideal job for when I was out of work. I had applied to a few different agencies and Carousel got back to me straight away and offered me an interview and assessment. They are such a lovely bunch of ladies, so warm and kind. I immediately felt at ease and they managed to get me work very quickly. Whether you are looking for more full time temping work or would like to be booked for jobs on a more weekly or daily basis, Carousel's temping department is perfect. They are a relaxed and fun bunch, not as corporate as some agencies and they will always endeavour to do their best for you and get you the best job.”

  • "Having worked in London for the past 6 years, I can honestly say that Carousel Consultancy is by far the best consultancy service I have experienced to date. The staff are warm and welcoming from the moment you first meet them and their number one aim is to make sure you get the job that you not only deserve, but one that you actually want. I never felt pressurised or inclined to attend an interview or accept a job offer if I didn't want to. The pleasure of being involved with Carousel Consultancy is that it's your decision as to what you do and that's exactly how it should be. Carousel Consultancy helped me find the best job of my career to date and I'm hugely grateful for their all their help and support".

  • "Every time I have asked for the help of Carousel I always find a friendly face willing to speak to me. As well as finding me an excellent job that fitted everything I needed, I was also given lots of brilliant advice. If I ever needed any help again, Carousel is the first place I would go. Thank you everyone at Carousel!"

  • "Carousel was recommended to me by a good friend who spoke very highly of the service offered by the agency.

    I came into Carousel as a recent graduate, full of enthusiasm and keen to begin my career. Upon meeting with Carole I instantly felt like I mattered to the company and that she wanted me to succeed and find a job- not just that it was just part and parcel of her business. Whilst I was capable of the jobs I initially came in for my CV lacked the experience I really needed to showcase the potential I had. Many agencies would’ve dismissed me at this point, but not Carousel.

    A part-time position became available at Carousel itself and I worked on reception as I continued my search for full time work. Over the time I was working I got to see how Carousel worked behind the scenes; I could see how much the consultants really worked to get their candidates the best possible roles they could.

    Eventually my time to shine came; Valerie put forward for a job and I was invited for interview, invited for a second interview and eventually landed the role. I have now left Carousel as an employee and am beginning my career within a fantastic global company, which offers so much potential and a very pleasing salary- all things that I could only dream of a few months ago. Carousel has provided the springboard I needed to launch myself into my career and I couldn’t be more grateful. Carousel are able to see the potential in you and provide the assistance you need to present yourself in the best possible way so that you can obtain the best possible roles for you!"

  • "Carousel is definitely one of the best agencies I have been to in London. From the beginning I found the service to be one of a kind; instead of feeling like one of the many other people looking for a job. My consultant Dawn worked tirelessly to find the right type of role for me. When I went for the job I am now in I was given guidance and advice on what the people were like interviewing me. I was also really impressed with how quick the process was and I was always kept up to date with the decisions from the company. After almost 2 years of working with Deluxe I have already been promoted and I currently completing my CIPD in Human Resource Management. I would highly recommend Carousel to anyone who is looking for their perfect job and when I am ready to move on from my present company I know I will be back in touch! "

  • "I would like to extend my thanks to Carousel for the excellent service they offer, which is certainly a "cut above the rest", in terms of efficiency, dynamism and professionalism. They offer a personalised and caring service, which is particularly welcome in these competitive times."

  • "The personal care and attention I received from Carole and her colleagues at Carousel made the recruitment process seamless. Their depth of knowledge enabled me to explore and build a picture of the type of job I really wanted - it certainly isn't a company that believes one size fits all. Thank you for making me feel like a "diamond."

    Vanessa M

  • "Carousel were really supportive throughout my application. My consultant was very friendly and approachable and kept me well informed with my progress, as well as ensuring that both my needs and the companies were met. I was successful in my application and am still happily working for the company, the role was perfect and just what I was looking for!

    Not only were the team at Carousel friendly, professional, and enthusiastic, but they also found me a position that I have enjoyed and thrived in more than any other role in my professional only 2 days! The consultants at Carousel have that ‘something special’ that allows them not just to fill positions, but to perfectly match clients and candidates to create very special working relationships! I will definitely be recommending them to ANYONE looking for a new job!"

  • "Just thought I'd drop you a quick email to say thanks again for placing me at CW - the people here are really lovely and the work is a nice blend of PA and administrative tasks. The pace has been quite varied so far, but I expect the workload will grow once I become more familiar with how everything operates! The team has been great, especially Helen (the other PA/Secretary) who has been unfailingly patient, warm and friendly.

    I just wanted to reiterate how much I appreciate all your help and encouragement - you were, without a doubt, the best agent I worked with. You may also be happy to hear that your skills are well known in these parts - a couple of the girls I had lunch with on the first day both said they were placed by you and the experience was overwhelmingly positive. The HR consultant who gave me my first induction (Laura) also thought you were fantastic, and had great things to say about Carousel more generally. Your honesty, persistence and constant encouragement have made you the gold star of recruitment consultants! It really was like having my own personal cheer squad, a sentiment that is shared by all of the people who spoke about you.

    I know I'm probably not the first to relay this type of message, but I thought you might like to hear again that your reputation is truly outstanding and I was more than happy to add my two cents to keep it growing. Any time you need a reference."

  • "Having registered with many recruitment agencies when I first moved to London, Carousel stood out as by far the most helpful and honest. Carole was so conscientious and took time to get to know me as an individual before placing me in a temporary role with in days of my initial interview. This role has since been made permanent and I have recently been offered a promotion. I would recommend Carousel to anyone."

    Amy L

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with Carole and her outstanding team for the past few months on temporary assignments. Following many registrations with numerous other agencies I found the Carousel team members to all be highly professional while including a unique personal touch which I found refreshing. Carousel has exceeded my expectations of agency service, the communication, honesty and efficiency has been exceptional and I look forward to continuing working for such a highly regarded office.”

  • "After graduating from Nottingham Trent University and pursuing a career in production design, I often found I had periods of unemployment due to the contractual nature of the industry. Carousel recruitment provided me with a way of filling in the time between. Their tailored service meant that I felt that they had really listened and cared about what I wanted. They were incredibly friendly and reassuring, and within the space of a week from my initial meeting I was in my first temporary job and since have been on several varied and interesting placements."

  • "I found Carousel's service extremely helpful in finding me the right job at the right company. Working closely with their Managing Director, I found their tailored service very valuable in terms of assessing whether the job was the correct fit for me. I also appreciated Carousel's candid approach when looking at my own skills set, and also the one-to-one preparations for interviews and other assessments. Would happily use again."

    Sam H

  • "Carousel has made every daunting, application process simple and instantly effective. Having been made their number one priority, I instantly felt like I was a part of their team. My interview couldn't have been more successful and I'd just like to thank Natalie for all her help and dedication."

    Rebecca H

  • "I had been made redundant and was signed to roughly 12 agencies, most of which were more than happy to waste my time and theirs bringing me in to register with them and then never contacting me again. 

    As someone who was in a situation where I was actively looking for a permanent position I really appreciated Valerie’s straight talking, no nonsense approach.Valerie brought me in to talk to me  about  the job I had actually applied for (which was a first!) she  then told me in no uncertain terms that she wasn’t going to put me forward for it because I wasn’t the right fit for that company.   She then offered me something she thought I’d be perfect for, and she was right.  I started my new permanent role today. 

    I can’t thank Valerie and the Carousel staff enough for all their help , efficiency and most importantly, to me, their honestly!  They have been a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking for a permanent role."

  • "Since graduating I had been looking to start a career in HR and hadn't had any luck for nearly 9 months. After registering with Carousel Consultancy Ltd and speaking with Valerie it was only 2 weeks until I was placed in my dream job! Throughout the application process I was updated regularly with my progress and given helpful feedback and information to increase my chances. Valerie was always available to contact to ask any questions or for any help and I believed she had a genuine passion for me to do well. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Valerie, Lea and the rest of the team at Carousel for all their hard work in finding me employment; I couldn’t have done it without you!"

    Helen S

  • "Carousel was recommended to me by my sister Kim Houlding. I was desperate to find a new job and made a gamble and gave my notice in. That day I spoke to Carousel, the following Monday was the first day of the temp booking they found for me. While I was there, Carousel continued to support me with advise and encouragement. Two weeks later they found me a permenant role in a lovely company. I love my new job, it is perfect for me.

    Without Carousel I would be jobless or in a dead end job with no motivation to look for a new one. I would recommend Carousel to anyone looking for a new opportunity.

    I want to say a massive Thank You to everyone at Carousel, especially Carole Pepperell, she always been there for me!"

  • “I have approached Valerie on two occasions when looking for new job opportunities. She takes the time to know her candidates and ensures that they are put forward for positions that they are well suited to. With other agencies I felt like a number but with Valerie at Carousel I remained a person and knew that I would be contacted if a suitable role came up.
    I have now found a new position but wouldn't hesitate to contact Valerie either for my own personal needs or to cover temporary position in my new workplace.”
