Out of all the recruiting companies I have been through, Likemind has been the one with which I've had the best experience and connection on a personal level.
- Candidate feedback -
Thanks to you and your team for the opportunity with your client. You have in place a very professional setup to support prospective candidates. I have dealt with a couple of recruitment companies in past roles, and none come close to the service and efficient, supportive communication you have provided.
- Client feedback -
It is a pleasure to work with you and I remain hugely impressed with the calibre of people you are finding for our roles in a tight market. You have a real talent for matching people to the roles, both in terms of skills and experience and personality fit for the role. Long may we continue to work together.

It is so nice to be with an agency that actually cares and is real. I want to commend you on the amazing genuine way you have taken me on the Likemind journey. From the constant communication about where the role was at, to checking in with me has been faultless on your part...I will be recommending my colleagues to be part of Likemind.

- Client feedback -
From my perspective you have been an amazing team to work with, communicative, responsive and very pro-active. I couldn’t ask for more.

Thank you Kim! I was so anxious about returning to work as a working mum, at the time when Jonny responded to my LinkedIn post I'd already had potential employers question whether I'd be looking after my daughter while working, or pushing me to accept more hours or less pay. It meant all the world to me to have you two confidently backing me up. I really do appreciate it.
