Reccomendations:

Susan Keely
Senior Merchandising Manager, Gate Retail On-board, Luton.

“I first came into contact with Luba when she called to introduce me to position last year after being made redundant.
Luba was professional in her approach and all the way through the interview stages but also has an honesty and warmness about her which I needed being nervous being back out job hunting after 24 years in one company.
I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Luba for assistance, or recommend her to friends, in the future.”

 

Lindsay Plunkett
Micro Space Planning Manager at World Duty Free

“I have worked with Luba over the past few months whilst looking for new opportunities.

Luba has a great manner about her, she has a calming influence during the interview process, which can be quite a stressful and anxious time, she always made sure I was kept updated with any progress and feedback.

You can tell Luba really does want to do the best for each company she works with and each candidate she represents – her passion for putting the right person in the right place comes across so strongly.

Luba understands the importance of building relationships by encouraging face to face meetings – it’s not always practical to meet in person however she thinks outside the box with Skype/Face Time sessions – it really does make a difference, Luba isn’t just a person on the end of a phone now, little things like this set her apart from others. She made time to get to know me as a person, which I believe makes her a fantastic recruiter as she matches the right people to not only the right role but to the right culture which will in turn ensure longevity within roles.

It’s been a pleasure working with Luba, I thoroughly recommend her as a recruiter.”
