Poor Communications
I have never before encountered an agency so slow and reluctant in employing a person in a long term lucrative contract. Poor communications, no contract paperwork, low rate offer, almost total lack of knowledge or experience pertinent to the job in ...

I am a Graphic Designer and have 5 years experience. I went in for an interview and got told that they were impressed with my work and CV and could get me work. I thought the interview went well. They said when I left they would contact me. I have not heard from them and it has been over a month. I update them all the time with my availability and I don't even hear back from them. I dont understand. If there is not enough work for everyone why do you recruit so many people and get there hopes up? Don't say there is work when there isn't. Unprofessional! Don't fall for these false promises!
My experience with Huxley has always been good and so has been the experience of any friends or acquintances I´ve recommended to work with Huxley. Mature, efficient and reliable Company.
If you are interviewing with Matchtech, you are probably looking at JAM. Avoid JAM at all costs and dont fall for their promises. Its all a lie. A business that CAN NOT be trusted.
I have been attempting to procure employment through the Cambridge office of Brand Recruitment for some time now. I have been registered with them for years, and have made an effort to visit them over the 90 mile, costly round-trip at least three times. As a marketing professional, I take my trade very seriously - and my reputation. Therefore I find it sad that the first time I've been driven to write a review about a recruitment agency is because of Brand Recruitment - a key employment channel for me. Essentially my review boils down to a few defined issues - 1) Every time I speak to Brand, I'm dealing with a different person. Even within the established 'markets' I'm approaching! Their staff turnover is HUGE. This is not good, and gives me no confidence in Brand. 2) The way I am handled as a candidate is appalling. I am treated like a commodity, given very little information about my applications, and generally made to feel like an annoyance or in recruitment terms... "A.W.O.T." .... or "one of them!" 3) Lack of response to emails regarding applications or simple queries, this is totally unacceptable and shows Brand up as second-rate. 4) Telling me whether I'm suitable for a role or not, with NO information about the role passed on to me, is not only arrogant to the extreme, but also self-defeating. The agents I turn to time and again are the ones that KNOW me, and KNOW what I'm capable of. Brand's team couldn't care less, don't WANT to KNOW me, and don't deserve the awards they've somehow garnered. 5) Finally, whilst other agencies have succeeded in obtaining interviews for me, and have made it easy to use my employability to enhance their offering to clients; Brand has not. They have no interest in the 'right' fit for their clients, just the convenient or easy fit for their 'consultants' - the use of this word makes me laugh when referring to Brand, as very little consulting has been performed. In Summary: I am NOT a competitor to Brand, nor have I have any particular 'beef' with Brand or any individuals within the organisation. I felt that as a marketing professional, others of my ilk should know what they're up against when applying for positions through Brand Recruitment. I hope that Brand can redeem itself, as I am still in contact with a couple of excellent consultants that have left the agency - but are not in a position to help me. These consultants KNOW me, just like I wish Brand would.
I've registered with a number of Agencies and keep going back to Thorpe Molloy. They are honest and upfront, the positions they have recommended are pretty much on the ball and always come with a job spec. They actually know who you are when you contact them. Unlike a lot of other agencies they didn't give false hope by contacting about inappropriate jobs. Feedback has always been prompt regardless of the outcome. If you want to be led up the garden path or need a morale boost forget it, if you want realistic advice go for it. They also pretty much know what they are talking about
