"Independent Appointments assisted in placing 3 new colleagues within my team. They have taken the time to find out exactly what type of person I was looking for, background about the role and our organisation overall. Consequently, I only received good quality CVs for applicants 'who ticked the boxes'. They have also kept me informed and provided good background information on each candidate. It made things so much easier. "

applicant testimonials

"I was referred to IAUK by a friend after been made redundant from my current role as an insurance broker. After a brief discussion about my experience and requirements Martin got to work in securing me a new job. During the whole process Martin was friendly and helpful and kept me fully informed. I was also sent interview techniques and useful information on whatever role I applied for. I really appreciate what Martin and the team did for me and would highly recommend IAUK to anyone looking for a new career."

"After conversations with a couple of other recruitment agencies who made big promises but failed to generate interviews, I spotted a couple of possible opportunities on the IAUK website. I sent an email and CV and Jayne got in touch that day. Within a couple of days, she had lined up one definite interview and another possibility. Within a week I had an offer. Jayne presented my counter offer to the company and I had a new job the next week. Next time I am in the market for a new job, Jayne at IAUK will be my first call."

“I contacted Martin at iauk after being referred from a friend. He was really helpful and efficient in getting my information and organising an interview for me which met my specification, this was all done in around the first week of me contacting them, after I had been searching for a new job for over a month with no success. I luckily got the job and have started my new role and am really enjoying it. I cannot thank Martin and his team enough for all their efforts, it made the transition really easy and straight forward.”

“Martin has been the key to my job search. I received help in all aspects, including Informative calls from Martin and his colleagues, as well as great interview preparation content. From the moment IAUK came in contact with me, it was a matter of days before I had an interview and received a great offer for a position. I am thankful for getting the job as I now work in a fast paced environment, a continuously growing organisation, with great people with same aspirations, on projects of great significance. I highly recommend the IAUK services to anyone who wants to take their career one step forward. I will personally not hesitate to be in contact again if needed. IAUK, thank you.”

“Martin has secured me a really interesting role which matches my skills’ set.  He contacted me about this job opportunity and made sure I was prepared for the interview process.  I would certainly recommend Martin from a Candidate’s perspective”.

"I originally relocated 7 years ago and used Martin at IAUK.  Martin’s communication and expertise from beginning to end was second to none and listened to what I was looking for.  Within two weeks Martin found the perfect position which was offered and accepted immediately. The service Martin provided was exceptional.  Due to personal reasons, I nearly did not make the move originally. Martin was fantastic and also supportive and went way beyond just finding the placement and ending the relationship there.  Martin continually called to see how things were going from a personal situation rather than a professional one, which shows the commitment and personal touch.  When I found myself looking for another challenge I did not hesitate in calling IAUK to find another suitable position which IAUK did effortlessly. I have used other consultants companies for recruiting previously but none that have the personal touch of IAUK.  I can not endorse IAUK highly enough.  They will find you the perfect opportunity/placement. The professionalism they offer cannot and will not be beaten."
Mr S Banning

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for finding me this position...The team that I am working with are fantastic and have made me feel very welcome. I know that I am going to enjoy working here and I can't thank you enough for the help you have given me. You have been extremely helpful from the moment I stepped through the door of Independent Appointments looking for work. The card was a lovely gesture and much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending yourselves to any friends or family who are looking for work within the insurance/loss adjusting industries."

"I have used IAUK on a few occasions over the years to assist in my search for work. On each occasion I have found the staff at Leeds to be very helpful and approachable. They understand my needs very well and only suggest jobs that are relevant and suitable rather than taking a scatter gun approach. They always respond very quickly to phone calls and e mails and keep me up-to-date as to what they are doing to help the search. They always do what they say they are going to do which for me is the most positive thing as so many other agencies I have dealt with never deliver on their promises and never do what they say which I find very irritating. Thank you for all your help and although I hope that I won't need your services for a while I would not hesitate to contact IAUK again. "
