The client’s perspective
Lucy Townsend, Personnel Manager, Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford
“The Consultants at Allen Associates are really responsive and consistently produce good quality Candidates at very short notice. I trust their opinions on team and cultural fit as well as skill sets, because I know they’ve met all their Candidates in person and have a good understanding of who we are and how we like to work.”
I approached Allen Associates to find a temp to cover the role of PA and Research Group Administrator while we advertised for a permanent candidate as part of the University’s open recruitment policy.
Allen Associates took a detailed brief and within 24 hours had provided me with a selection of good quality temporary Candidates. I selected a few for interview, again within 24 hours, and Toni Collins was one of them. She immediately stood out and I knew she would be able to pick up the key aspects of the role and provide excellent temporary cover. She was in post within the week.
