“We have known and worked with Carole for many years and her company, The Recruitment Room. They really have a knack for getting under the skin of the business and are able to deliver exactly what our requirements are for our restaurants and bars, and the ongoing development of our brand.
They fully understand our company culture, and deserve to be part of our long-term recruitment strategy. And so, for that reason, there really is no other choice for us when it comes to the recruitment of key personnel!
Professional, thorough, and consistently going the extra mile are but just a few reasons why I would not hesitate to recommend The Recruitment Room when looking to work with an agency to recruit staff.”
Director at The Laundrette, Manchester
“Very competent, very cooperative, and extremely collaborative in their approach to understanding our business. The Recruitment Room always seem to be one step ahead of their competition. The Recruitment Room evidently have a sound business plan of their own to be a successful recruitment agency. They have admirable integrity, they understand our company culture, and deserve to be part of our long term recruitment and employment strategy.
Their candidate profiling is sharp and accurate and communication is speedy. The results speak for themselves in that every candidate introduced to us by The Recruitment Room are of a high caliber, they are well briefed and fitting for the role, many of their successful candidates are the infrastructure of our management team and kitchens. They have helped us fill many roles and often are prepared to really think outside of the box.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to work with an agency, and we are proud to work with them ourselves.”

“The Recruitment Room has made every effort to visit each of our restaurants and meet the managers in place to gain a greater understanding of each specific site and our requirements for the profile, experience and personality for our senior team. In doing this I can be assured that every candidate introduced to me by The Recruitment Room will be of a high calibre and as a result I have recruited many members of my management.”

Owner of Salvo’s and Salumeria, Leeds
“We have used The Recruitment Rooms a number of times in the last six months to secure staff for the launch of Chop Bloc and continue to do so as our requirements grow.
Carole and her team have been a real asset to Chop Bloc helping us find senior members of staff that other recruitment specialists could not match in calibre nor experience.
We always feel confident interviewing candidates that are put forward to us by Carole as we have come to appreciate and understand the groundwork that The Recruitment Rooms have done prior to us receiving the application. It’s comforting to know that all candidates are pre-screened by Carole and their experience and calibre is verified and vetted prior to us meeting them which helps provide a more streamlined and coordinated approach to recruitment for us as a business.
Carole has successfully placed our GM and AGM through a headhunting approach and multiple junior members of staff through a broader targeted campaign. We have enjoyed a 100% retention rate with our senior staff members Carole has placed and we are very happy with their placements.
Carole’s specialist Chef recruitment manager Paul Lee has also placed our head chef who has been a real asset to our business. We spent a long time trying to find the right person to fill this role and Paul guided us through the process and found the perfect candidate for the job. Paul has continued to support us with Chef recruitment, helping to source additional sous chefs as the needs of the business has expanded. The calibre of the applicants we have received has been very high and we will continue to use the Recruitment Room to address our ongoing recruitment needs.
We had previously used local recruitment companies that promised us a similar level of service but unfortunately were massively disappointing. Our experience with Carole and her colleagues has been extremely positive and they have secured us the best candidates for the roles and have provided us great value for their service.
I am more than happy to discuss our experience with you in more detail, and am available on my mobile anytime. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.”
Managing Director at Chop Bloc Ltd
“There are not many consultancies out there that really listen to what you say and understand fully what you need. Pretty much every application put forward from Carole and the team at The Recruitment Room will be someone that I want to hire – you can’t ask for much more than that from a great recruiting partner. Long may this continue!!”
Senior Recruitment Manager at Carluccio’s
“The first time I have worked with The Recruitment Room and I’m sure it won’t be the last!
I was particularly taken not only by Carole and Paul’s in-depth knowledge of our hospitality industry – they clearly do constant research – but also by their innate understanding that great people make great businesses.
They are a pro-active, attentive pair and always quick to respond. They grasped very quickly my vision for the site and indeed helped me to refine it, and brought me a strong shortlist of suitable candidates from which I was able to recruit two high calibre people to the key positions of GM and Head Chef.
If you should wish to contact me via Carole, I would be only too pleased to reinforce verbally this brief written testimonial.”
