I have been out of work a long time through illness and so coming back to work was not easy. With understanding and consideration Melissa found me a position I probably would not have thought of, but it seems just what I needed to get going again after such a long break.
The people at the Recruitment Bar are knowledgeable and considerate of the needs of the client and the employer.

Melissa provides excellent service, is very helpful and responds immediately to the emails.

Monika - September 2019

You contacted me directly as soon as you had a job that fitted my skills before you’d even listed it which I really appreciated so I could research the company and get some information together to help my interview. 
I was so happy that I had someone (Tania) to contact even out of the standard working hours to answer all of my questions right up until the interview which really made me feel at ease and prepared. Even after the interview and after receiving a job offer she was amazing at answering all of my queries and was extremely approachable and easy to talk to.
I also got a thankyou card from the team at trb and it’s just a really nice personal touch that meant a lot.
So thank you for the help you’ve given me and I’m so excited to start my new role next week! 

Leighanne - July 2018

The Recruitment Bar contacted me when I was between jobs and recommended me for an interview in my local area on a temporary basis. The job which was originally intended for 4-6 weeks ended up being a 5 month placement. During the entire process, The Recruitment Bar staff were incredibly helpful and organised, I had very little to worry about and had full confidence in their capabilities as recruiters.

Harry - July 2018

It was great talking with Sheryl Joy from The Recruitment Bar, who helped me to secure my Brand Executive appointment. I would highly recommend Sheryl to graduates, she is very professional, a pleasure to liase with, and most certainly lives up to her name - thank you!

Harry - May 2018

I have had such a fantastic experience and would highly recommend The Recruitment Bar to anyone looking for work. I have dealt with agencies before and have to say the standard of service this agency give was beyond my expectations. I was kept informed about job applications every step of the way and both Tania and Rachel gave me fantastic interview tips and advice. As well as their high level of professionalism, they were both so friendly and approachable. I felt like I was in very safe, confident hands. They found me a job that was exactly what I was looking for and that I am very excited about. Thank you!

Emily – April 2016

I have used The Recruitment Bar as one of our preferred recruitment consultants for over a year now and will continue to give them the opportunity to fulfil our staffing requirements. My main dealings have been with Jodie Howden, who has been both responsive and proactive, always providing a concise overview of potential candidates as well as providing CV’s. Other dealings have been equally pleasing and I would confidently recommend Rachel and her team at The Recruitment Bar to supply a reliable, prompt and courteous service. They have a strong understanding of our business and our staffing requirements and have successfully filled several roles in our organisation.

Mick, Director of Corporate Services

I have worked with many agencies in the past, both large and small, and without a doubt The Recruitment Bar have provided us with the best candidates we have ever seen,  Sheryl sent over 4 exceptional candidates for a role and we have now got the unenviable task of deciding which one is the best for us.  We will not hesitate to use them in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone who thinks all agencies are the same. The Recruitment Bar are truly the best agency we have ever worked with.  

Harry - Managing Director

I have been working with Rachel and the team at The Recruitment Bar for a few years now and they have quickly become a recruitment team of choice for us here at Collingwood Lighting Ltd. The thing that makes them different and that makes us work with them time and time again is that they know our business, the people and the culture which enables them to find us perfect candidates each time a vacancy becomes available.

The team are personable, friendly and even go the extra mile when we are being particularly fussy, providing us with not only excellent permanent but temporary staff also. 

Rebecca Connors - HR Manager

Tania from The Recruitment Bar helped us a lot when searching candidates for several sales (related) positions. Any kind of business knows their specificities- ours as well. Tania took a lot of effort to understand our specific way of working and needs. As such they search the best fit candidates. We didn’t receive a lot of CV’s, but every single candidate was spot on. It’s very reassuring and comfortable to work with this company and especially with Tania as Account Manager: easy to contact, fast in reply, efficient, willing to invest efforts to understand the customer and professional. High value for the money. That’s for sure!

Peter - HR Manager

I have worked with Rachel and her team in a professional capacity for many years. As a recruitment business they are the best I have ever dealt with. What sets the Recruitment Bar above other agencies is their personal approach, they really get to understand your business and find candidates that will not only meet all your needs, they seem to know who will fit in with your current team and business principles. They are honest, reliable and always get back to us quickly. The candidates they provide are top class and it saves so much time, money and effort advertising a role, looking through CV's and interviewing unsuitable candidates. Having Rachel and her team on board is like having our own in house recruitment department. It's always a pleasure working with such a friendly and professional team.

Chloe Hobbs

I would definitely recommend this company to any of my colleagues and shall look to using their service again.


I have always found The Recruitment Bar a pleasure to work with. With their focus on listening to our requirements and getting the right fit first time, it makes recruiting an absolute ease!
