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!

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.
