My incredible journey with Purple Dove started 2 years ago. I was at University hoping to earn extra cash to help with my travel expenses and food. However it was extremely hard to find any jobs and I gave up hope of ever finding a job, until one day when I came across Purple Dove online. Once I called, I had a Skype interview set up the next day. I started working straightaway, it was that easy! I have learnt so much about myself and gained invaluable experience and knowledge. It has been amazing to work with Purple Dove. I would 100% recommend Purple Dove to anyone who is seeking to find work ASAP. Faduma
A few weeks ago I added my cv to total jobs website. I did this with apprehension thinking I wouldn't find anything. However, within two weeks I had been to two interviews and was offered a job that I can only describe as tailor-made to me. This is all thanks to Purple Dove. They got in touch and after we spoke the first time I felt so much anxiety that I had over relocating from the Midlands to London melt away. I just wanted to let you know what an excellent job they doing and how well they keep in touch. I was never waiting days for emails or feedback or information. They are very professional and not only found me a job but relieved me of a mountain of anxiety and stress over the move. I will recommend the company to anyone I meet that is looking for new work. Thank you

I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you for all you have done over the past month. You have made the anxious thought of finding a new job so relax and easy for me! You have always been there if I need to ask a question no matter what time. Thank you for being so patient and helping me find the job that suits me best! I really appreciate all that you have done by giving me a new adventure!
I have been delighted with the service provided by the Purple Dove Team – Shama has taken all the stress out of the recruitment process, and in a very short time I have ended up with an excellent NURSERY MANAGER. What I found really good about Shama is that she is honest, very professional and understands the needs and provides only suitable candidates for the role. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PURPLE DOVE AND WILL BE WORKING WITH SHAMA AND HER TEAM IN THE FUTURE.
