Big Bear Recruitment have been amazing. Unlike other companies, Big Bear Recruitment genuinely care about you & really want you to chose the option that's best for you. It's refreshing to work with people who are passionate, down to earth and enthusiastic about your new job prospects. Nothing was a problem and they were always at the end of the phone for any queries. I couldn't have asked more from them.

Thanks again for the all support it's been great!

I'm so glad I went with Big bear recruitment. They helped me to find my New job as a Charge nurse in a children’s hospital, which I never thought I would get. I had previously attended interviews, and was knocked back several times for. My big bear recruitment consultant Nizaam was so supportive. He helped me with building my confidence and helped me to prepare for my interview. Nizaam has been so helpful with communicating with my new company of work, and then onto me. He has in my eyes gone above and beyond his duties to make sure that the process has gone smoothly. He even went as far as to contact me whilst on holiday. Like Nizaam, his other colleagues have also been extremely helpful in his absence. I can highly recommend Big Bear Recruitment. 5 star class for their custom. Thank you Big Bear Recruitment.
Louise Hanner, Charge Nurse
It is a daunting task to look for a new job after having worked for one employer for a long time. When I posted my CV on CV library last year, Simi approached me and offered to look for job opportunities for me. She was very professional in her approach when she searched for nursing posts for me. The great thing that I observed with Simi was that she always puts you at the fore front of her job by making sure you are continuously updated and you are in agreement with the searches she would be carrying out. Her level of communication was really great and when I left my other employer, she also understood my reasons and was very supportive of my next career challenge. It was easy for me to go back to Simi when I wanted to search for a new job as she had established a good working relationship with me. In all the tasks I gave to Simi, she completed in reasonable time and left me satisfied with her service. I hope Simi will develop and learn more from different people she will meet with her job.

From first contact with Simi at Big Bear Recruitment, she has been professional and friendly, was able to listen to my needs, and matched my skills to the ideal role of staff nurse, which I have recently been successful. The biggest thing for me though, that I've not really come across with other recruitment agencies before, is the support and the regular updates, whether this is a quick text, phone call or e-mail. In addition, I have recently been in a bad place professionally and personally, and Simi has helped me through this, she has gone above and beyond her role, and her support has been fantastic.
