I first emailed Purple Dove with my CV thinking that I would not be considered for the position that I was applying for. I was called within 24 hours to talk more about my CV and to discuss the role and my suitability for it. Shama put forward my CV and within a week I was interviewed and offered the position. Shama is amazing with keeping in touch with me and updating me as much as she possibly could. She is also contactable what seems like 24/7 which is something that is not offered by other agencies. Shama takes time to listen to you and she has found me my perfect job and can not wait to start – Karin G
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 Claire. She 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 she is doing and how well she keeps in touch. I was never waiting days for emails or feedback or information. She is 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
Caring, professional and ultra efficient - Purple Dove helped us find our perfect nursery manager in record time and we now have a great partnership which covers all our recruitment needs.
Hard-working people who want to do the best they can and I am sure you give all your clients the same level of service but make us feel as if we are the only ones – that is a skill.
I have been a nanny for 18 years and have used many different agencies to find work. Purple Dove is easily the best agency that I have used. Shama is excellent at finding out exactly what people want from job or a nanny and matches them well. I am definitely going to use Purple Dove next time I am job hunting. I can't recommend them enough.
I've used Shama's company on several occasions over the years for both temporary and permanent nanny positions. She has consistently been on the ball and very proactive. Shama has the experience to be able to match the right type of nanny with the right type of family who share similar values and attitudes towards raising children. Her professional approach also means she attracts the best calibre of candidates and doesn't compromise her brand in anyway. Thanks for being the saviour as without your guidance and services, I wouldn't have found it as easy to go back to work.
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 Kate and her team – she 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 Kate 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 KATE AND HER TEAM IN THE FUTURE.
