"De Lacy, you didn't do just your job, believe me. You have been extremely helpful with all your advice and reassurance: this is an added value, in particular for people like me, coming from abroad and who are willing to enter a totally new job market. It is a big source of anxiety and worry. You made things a lot easier."
Candidate Testimonial

"Just wanted to thank you again for the nice conversation today. I've
worked with a few recruiting firms now and haven't come across one as
approachable and as personable as De Lacy. I was surprised (in a good
way) when you insisted on a phone conversation before passing on my CV
and really appreciate you taking the time. Since I'm
focused on a job in agriculture or animal health in the UK, I'm sure
we'll be working more together in the future and look forward to it."

""I have worked with Amanda over a number of years, both when she was recruiting on my behalf, and also in developing my own career.

Amanda works tirelessly to ensure the candidates she presents for a role are pre-qualified, so that only the best are presented for consideration. At all times, as a client, I was totally impressed with Amanda's attention to detail, and a real sense of ownership of her work. I would thoroughly recommend Amanda and De Lacy for any business seeking to recruit professional people into their business.

More recently, following an unexpected redundancy, Amanda worked on my behalf to secure my next move. She swiftly got my CV in front of many people in the industry, with an offer of consultancy work as a result within a week. It is testament to her pursuit of excellence that her client list includes some of the biggest names in the industry, and as a job seeker, Amanda worked tirelessly on my behalf, was a friendly and supportive voice on the phone, and has been successful in helping me secure a great new role. All I can say is Thank you ! "
