I have had the opportunity to work with Michelle for a number of years both as a client when recruiting for staff and as a candidate when looking for a new opportunity. She is approachable, attentive and listens really well to any information. She then takes the information and matches this to find the very best opportunity or candidate. There has never been a time when dealing with Michelle that she has not maintained a high level of communication, so I have been kept informed at every stage of a process. In addition she has a very honest approach, if she can help she will tell you, if she cannot help immediately she will tell you, but she will always come back to you with an honest overview of what she can do and in what time frame. Michelle is a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.

I’m often asked how to select the best recruiter to work with when you are looking for a new position. its simple, find a recruiter who is honest, transparent and trustworthy all there words I would use to describe Michelle and Listen recruitment. Michelle is one of the best recruiters out there. With her personable approach Michelle was able to take my preferences and circumstances in to consideration and presented me with a number of positions that matched them perfectly. I would Highly recommend Michelle if you are sick of interviewing at company's who over promise and under deliver.

I can highly recommend the services of Michelle & John at Listen recruitment. We have used Michelle’s  service on several occasion whilst recruiting for our Yorkshire office. Michelle has differentiated herself by really understanding what we want and what we need. The accuracy of the candidates presented by Michelle has far exceeded our expectations.
