I first came in to contact with Helen as a potential candidate for what became a very successful time in my career as a Machine Shop Manager.
Helen was very professional in all aspects of the recruitment role, but managed to have a friendly and personal relationship also.
This led to a long-standing partnership while I used Helen as my main recruiter, due to moving to a different area of the country from what I was used to, the skill pool was significantly different to the midlands, and Helen supported and vetted her candidates to exactly what I required.
Helen took her time in really understanding not only the role, but the whole company in what our future objectives were, our culture and with this we only had exemplary candidates walk through our doors.
I look forward to working with Helen again in the future and wish Skillection the very best in 2018, I am confident that Helen herself will make this a huge success.

I had the pleasure to connect with Helen in which she was dedicated to find me my next opportunity/ position, in which I was successful in obtaining. Helen understood my specific requirements and found a perfect match, all communications and guidance I received was excellent many thanks for your efforts and support to my next long-term career.

I have now worked with Helen over many years when looking to secure employment due to redundancy or a change of circumstances. She is always my first point of contact and I work with her exclusively as I know she has my best interests in mind. She always takes the time to listen and understand the key requirements I have and is proactive in her approach to finding new opportunities and interviews. 
Helen contacted me at the beginning of the year with a new opportunity at one of her clients. This was a different role to what I was used to but was a role in which I had always dreamed of moving into. It was great that Helen remembered this and felt my skill set matched up to what her client was looking for.  I successfully gained an interview along with 3 other candidates to which I got through to second stage and to my delight even though I had less experience than some of the other candidates I was selected for the job. 
With Helen’s skill, commitment and proactive approach, along with taking the time to listen and understand she has successfully secured my dream role which I am thoroughly enjoying.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Helen and believe she will make her new business Skillection a massive success.

Very professional and great communication. After speaking to Helen on a Wednesday regarding a job vacancy advertised I was offered an interview on Thursday. I now have a new permanent job starting next Tuesday, which has taken less than a week to arrange. I even had a call on the morning of the interview wishing me luck and a card in the post wishing me the best of luck in my new role. Thank you, Helen, top class service.

Testimonial from Niculai March 2018

My name is Niculai, I'm a machine building engineer. For some time I wanted to change my old job. After the release of my resume on job placement sites and after receiving many offers, it's time to get the expected and desired offer. Nothing unusual until Director Helen Mitchell-Hayes of SKILLECTION LTD sent me a short message to my email address and asked me why I was looking for a job that I said I want to come back in the Yorkshire area. After that, she called me on the phone to confirm it. Then she contacted me again to tell me that the director at a company wanted to go to the interview. I confirmed that I wanted to go to the interview and together we set the date for the interview. The interview went on naturally, and the director of the company presented me with the work that was done there, in less than 15 minutes this interview ended and told me that in two days I will receive the answer through Helen. I received this answer only after a week because there were some other people interviewed.

I was happy to find out that I was selected for this job, which is why I would like to thank Helen Mitchell-Hayes for the professional way of choosing the right person for the right place and for the warm and friendly collaboration she gave proof throughout this period.

Thank you Helen!

Client Testimonial from Paul in Bolton - November 2018

 Helen is great at finding the right people!
But this isn’t by chance!
It’s about putting in the necessary hard work to understand the role you’re trying to fulfil properly, but also the time and effort to understand the business they are coming into. These are both areas Helen really excels.
I can’t recommend Helen highly enough to any of you out there looking to recruit!

A quick thanks to Helen Mitchell-Hayes who has stepped out on her own as a recruiter today - I might well have been her first candidate and, judging by her approach and professionalism, I won't be her last.  Thanks, you made my day!

Reccomendation from Gavin - March 2018

I can not recommend this company enough, I dealt with Helen who throughout was very friendly, approachable and professional. She was able to find me new employment extremely quickly and I can’t thank her enough for the opportunity. If I was ever to find myself out of work again I wouldn’t hesitate to give her a call. Honestly don’t delay give her a call you won’t be disappointed.

Testimonial from Paul - June 2018

So today the very first candidate I placed in February when the business just started has been in touch. He messaged to say thank you and that the company and job is fantastic. He was taken on to replace someone who was retiring. That person has now left and he is fully in charge of the inspection department. He’s loving it. Just a little message of thanks and hearing good news has really put a smile on my face. Thank you

Testimonial from Luke March 2018

 My experience from day one of contact to the moment I signed on the dotted line for the job with Helen was a pleasure. Very approachable and professional with constant communication throughout the process to put you at complete ease with peice of mind. Every requirement from the job role I wished for, down to the hours of work I required was fulfilled beyond my expectations and couldn't have asked for any more. If i was to ever be out of work again Helen would be the first port of call without any doubt. A pleasure, thank you! Luke - March 2018
