I believe that Recruitment isn’t a numbers game: it’s not a game at all. It’s about using skill, experience and judgement to understand your requirements and match them effectively with the ambitions and skills of the right candidate. A candidate whom I will have met and interviewed personally, in order to gain a comprehensive insight into their career history and their desires and motivation.
This requires investing time and, of course, considerable intelligence and application. This is The Bijou Difference.
Once a brief is agreed, you can expect the following:
I will meet you in your office to gain an insight into the working environment and understand the team set up
As well as advertising the vacancy on the appropriate industry media, I will network extensively to source appropriate candidates
I will personally interview all potential candidates
Once identified, I will shortlist candidates and submit their CV, accompanied by a detailed Profile
I will arrange interviews and coordinate feedback
I will provide comprehensive referee information for successful candidates
At Bijou, I collaborate with other industry friends and we work collectively to fulfil the requirements of our candidates and our clients. Between us, we have an extensive network that we can explore and our ethos is one of integrity and trust.

Having deployed Amanda’s recruitment services on many occasions, it is clear that she goes to great lengths to understand both the culture of the business together with the specific brief. Of the industry professionals I have worked with, Amanda stands out. She makes a huge effort in meticulously screening possible candidates before submitting her short lists. This saves time and energy and ensures that the most suitable individuals are identified in the most efficient time-saving manner. Highly recommended!

I have worked with several recruitment agencies over the years and I can say without bias that Amanda is one of the most positive, friendly and dedicated recruiters I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She completely surpassed my expectations since we first met. Amanda is a real subject expert who also brings a commercial approach and a great balance of professional guidance and attention to detail to the table. Amanda is intelligent, articulate and personable. I know that anyone who is lucky enough to have her guidance and support will also be a great success!!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and hope to do so again in the future.

I have used Amanda's recruiter services for several years now as she is not only an absolute pleasure to work with but also produces great results. Amanda is incredibly personable, totally understands our business and always works in a very efficient and organised manner. Amanda always commits to finding the right people for our roles and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to other HR colleagues. She simply understands what it is to be a good Recruiter especially in the way she builds relationships with her clients. I very much look forward to continuing to work with Amanda in the future.
