It’s always great to hear what other people have said about us. We’ve gathered together some recent testimonials from both our clients and candidates, as we think this type of feedback speaks for itself…

Candidate and Client

“North Cheshire Chamber’s business relationship with COS Recruitment
goes back over 20 years when Sue Bowden, now Chief Executive, joined the
Chamber through an introduction. In the intervening years whenever the
Chamber have had a role to fill, COS Recruitment have come up with the
right candidate. “
“Sue commented “COS have the ability to interpret a brief and put forward
a selection of candidates who have the right qualities and credentials, it is
then up to us to choose which person we feel would be the best fit in our
team and culture. Fortunately the recruitment needs of the Chamber are
minimal because we are such a strong unit, but Olivia and her team can
always be relied on to help us fill a need.”

Candidate Testimonials

“Many thanks for getting in touch. I really appreciate your open and honest feedback here – it makes a difference to deal with an agency that offers this! Thank you for your time and best wishes.”

“Very good agency which found me the position and the application process was speedy. Kept me informed all way through.”

“COS literally found me my ideal job, with a company who took a chance on me even though i had no experience in the industry! [My new company] is a fantastic company to work for so thank you COS!”

“Found COS a great recruitment agency, would definitely use them again”

“Loved the role & company and would have stayed if circumstances were different.
I was really happy with COS Recruitment and have nothing bad to say.”

“COS were easy to deal with and were always very professional when trying to place me in a suitable position.”

Brilliant! I love where I work and if COS hadn’t of reached out to me and helped me along the way I wouldn’t have even known about the job! Thank you!!”

“For job-seekers looking for work that suit’ their experience and qualifications, in my experience COS recruitment is the best agency in Cheshire & Greater Manchester area.

I have carried out both temporary and long-term contracts for COS recruitment and have used them on and off since 2007. When I have applied to various job agencies to find work, COS are the ones who have come through first!

Everyone who has helped me find work at COS recruitment over the years are great listeners who take the time to fully understand your situation in order to help you find work. Whether you need a quick temporary job to earn some money, or whether you’re seeking a job tailored to your long-term ambitions—the team at COS always work hard to find you suitable opportunities

I have no hesitation in writing them this great review as a reflection of how good they are at developing employment opportunities and matching them to their job-seekers.”

“Had a great experience with COS recently. By far one of the best recruitment agencies I have dealt with. The consultant who looked after me was great, kept me informed and went out of her way to assist me.

Would recommend to anyone looking for work or looking for employees.”

“Nothing but good things to say about COS! I, like many others, have found recruiters to be a bit of a nightmare in the past and have tended to steer clear. I had completely the opposite experience with COS. They found a role for me, prepped me for it fully and kept me updating throughout the whole process. Luckily enough, I got the job which I absolutely love. 🙂 They even contacted me after I left my last job to see how that went, and gave me advice along the way. Recruitment agencies build you up and drop you so quickly, but that’s just not the case here. So so grateful for finding me my dream role – can’t recommend COS enough!”

Client Testimonials

“We have used COS as they are a local firm who we like to support.

We find all staff very helpful and one thing that makes them standout is the quality of the candidates against our requirements , we don’t have lots of time for interviews and getting people who closely match our requirements helps greatly.

I also have good feedback from the candidates who speak to yourselves and what they say about us as a company , it helps again if the person knows a bit about the company they are looking to join, and you knowing the type of candidate and personality we look to employ within our team.”

“Just wanted to voice some praise for the trio of temps we have from you. All three are working really well in their assigned area and the work they are doing is being done to a very high standard. I couldn’t actually be much happier right now with our ‘temporary’ recruits. Much obliged.

 As always, thank you for your continued support.”

“Both candidates put forward were excellent and just what we were looking for. Thanks for the recommendation regarding the candidate who secured the position. Based on his CV / experience only, we would not have interviewed him. However after a conversation we agreed to interview him, he was exactly as described and was offered the position. Thank you for all your help, again!”

“Excellent service from initial communication through to approval of candidates. 100% strike rate with candidates received and interviewed. Have tried other agencies but the quality and standard of the people from COS were exactly what we were looking for. The candidates matched our Job spec very well.”

“COS provided a fantastic service and found us a suitable candidate in a matter of days. Service was efficient and I was kept informed and updated at all times. Looking forwards to our new starter joining the team.”

“Open and honest with good understanding of our requirements. Trustworthy, which is important for us. Great to deal with and will use COS again.”

Very helpful in finding the temporary staff we required at short notice. You were also very understanding of our needs going forward and suggested further meeting nearer to the start date for each trade we would require.”

“We have had bad experiences with several other agencies, many of which do not even take to time to visit to find out who their customer is and how they can successfully fill the vacancy. COS were very professional and responsive; we were visited several times to discuss the openings and to review the process progress. And the support team were all excellent in confirming arrangements or discussing candidates over the phone.

Not all the candidates suited our team dynamics, but any rejection was received professionally and we were never coerced in to interviewing or taking on any candidate that we felt was not suitable. I have even put an unsuccessful candidate in touch with COS to help them find employment. We never felt like this was simple a monetary transaction, and that they genuinely wanted to place the right people in the right job, for the long term. I would recommend their services without hesitation.”

“Although we have only sourced one vacancy through COS I would be happy to recommend the team to others and to return when we have another requirement. The ease and speed of which we were able to agree terms and get a vacancy live was excellent which allowed us to move quickly and secure a placement. An excellent relationship has been created and the updates and communication from COS has been key to ensuring I could provide updates to our internal stakeholders. So far the service has been reliable and I look forward to working with you again.”

“COS managed to find us an excellent candidate in a very short period of time. It saved us the hassle and time of advertising and going through multiple applications. We were presented with three possible candidates who all were very good. Following on from the success of this we used COS again to find a candidate we thought would be hard to find. They again came up with excellent candidates in a short period of time.”
