The client’s perspective
Liz Thorley, HR Manager, St Clare’s

“The consultants at Allen Associates invest time in developing strong relationships with their clients, taking the trouble to understand the business, culture and team fit. They are always helpful and supportive, never crossing the line and becoming pushy or salesy.”

The brief
Having previously worked with Allen Associates on another HR role, I had no hesitation in asking the agency for help with recruiting an extra pair of hands to help us with a specific administrative project. Ideally, I was looking for someone with a strong admin background, knowledge of HR and if possible, an understanding of the heavily regulated schools environment.

The approach:
Allen Associates took a comprehensive brief and came out to St Clare’s to have a look around so that they could talk knowledgeably to candidates about the role as well as the environment they would be working in. The whole process was incredibly quick.
