I have worked with Claire Barlow of Invigorate Recruitment for 7 years, in my capacities as a recruiting manager, a HR manager and as a candidate seeking a position.
Throughout the period I have worked with Claire and Invigorate they have conducted themselves professionally and demonstrated excellent relationship-management skills. They are very hard-working and are sensitive to the brief given by employers seeking candidates and to desires expressed by candidates. My experience of them is that they give a very personal service and consistently keep in touch with employers and candidates regarding progress.
The result has been that I no longer feel the need to use other recruitment consultants unless they have limited chance of filling a position because of its highly technical requirements or some other specific reason. I have complete confidence in their ability to interpret a brief and provide suitable candidates who have been briefed fully and honestly.
Claire and Invigorate are a pleasure to work with and behave and communicate in a way which assures me of their ability, trustworthiness and professionalism. I am more than happy to continue working with them and wish them continued success in their field.

The team at Invigorate Recruitment actually listened when I told them my career plans and they found me a role suitable for my skills very quickly! They did this in a very professional and friendly manner taking in consideration my needs, unlike other recruitment companies who ‘put you forward’ for any old role and made you feel like another statistic…
The service from Invigorate Recruitment is professional, supportive and thoughtful. My consultant, was highly professional when contacting me and involved herself in each stage of my progress.
I was fully informed about all aspects of the role, the skills required, tips and hints for interviews and was contacted with wishes of good luck on the day of interviews. Feedback was sought and communicated on to me within a short time of leaving the interviewer.
A faultless demonstration of how a Recruitment Consultant should conduct their business. I was most impressed and would not hesitate to recommend their services to colleagues. I cannot thank them enough for finding my new role for me.
As a very busy and successful business, it is important for us to ensure the continual smooth running of the office whilst maintaining a happy and productive working environment. We pride ourselves in providing the highest level of service to all our clients and it is therefore paramount that our suppliers work to enhance our reputation at all times.
Over the past seven years Claire Barlow has helped us to meet this requirement by not only supplying us with temporary and permanent staff at short notice but actually managing to provide us with friendly, enthusiastic and efficient personnel that immediately fit in with the rest of our staff.
Not only have they consistently exceeded our expectations in respect of our recruitment needs, they have also been able to work with our Board to deliver a bespoke, in-house ICT training programme.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in making them my first point of contact for temporary or permanent staff, training or advice, as they have made it their priority to get to know how our company operates and how crucial it is that we do not upset the balance of our existing team.

Invigorate recruitment were friendly, fast, flexible and efficient. Their no-pressure approach was a welcome change from the typical sales-driven recruitment agencies I have previously dealt with. I felt valued as a client throughout the entire process and was regularly updated; a pleasant change not to have to do the chasing myself! I was made to feel confident in their ability to find me a new employee and was able to just leave them to their own devices. Invigorate recruitment were amongst 3 other recruitment agencies working to find me another recruit and although Invigorate Recruitment were the last agency to come on board, they were by far the most successful!
