A pleasure to work with

have to say that it was a pleasure to work with Mell and her team. Within a week she had organised and prepared me for interviews. In addition she followed up with me and the employer to find out how I did. If you need to find the right job for you, leave it with them and they will take care of it.

Awesome ! Loving It

I was contacted out of the blue by Melanie, and had my CV forwarded to a potential employer by Honey Pot People, which resulted in me landing an amazing and life changing job with a fantastic Not for Profit organisation! Thank you Melanie and everyone at Honey Pot People!

Chris H

Wow, what an amazing team.

All the consultants were very professional and helpful. I'd like to say a special thank you to Jed for finding me the perfect role and having me back to work within a week of me arriving back in the UK. I had a number of agencies contacting me however the honeypot people were the best by far and I'd recommend them over any other recruitment agency around. Thank you.
