I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You to Selena for basically everything! For calming me when I got a bit crazy, helping me with what to wear, checking my presentation, sending goodies on my first day and basically doing everything above and beyond what you needed to! And most importantly, helping me get the job!!!
Holly was a pleasure to work with throughout the recruitment process and provided excellent advice and help on all levels. There was a key focus on finding the right role for me from the outset, and Holly was great at keeping in touch with updates and handing any issues. Very good, well rounded, personal service! I have recommended Distinct and Holly to my friend. Thank you for all the help!
Selena has helped place a number of candidates at our Company. Distinct get to know our business requirements and whether we are actively recruiting or not, if a candidate becomes available that may suit our business, they know there could be a 'fit'. Distinct are there when I need them and not intrusive when I don't.

Selena Allwood is my Distinct contact. Selena is very professional, supportive and helpful whilst working with me to gain the job I want. Apart from being very communicative, Selena sends me high quality hints and tips relevant to each stage of the recruitment process as I proceed. Selena's general attitude and professionalism stands out against all other Recruitment agencies. She makes me feel as though I am her only candidate and gives me lots of practical help that is well founded and works. This is not usual. Without wanting to appear sycophantic, Selena is a credit to your company.
Selena placed me at Xynomix in a really great role for me. I was then asked to grow my team and I used Distinct and other means to recruit for these roles. Selena and her colleague Imogen went above and beyond to make the process really efficient (recruitment can take up a lot of time in my experience). Their honestly and direct approach, along with some fantastic candidates to choose from made the experience more positive for me. When you say you'll call, you'll call... but you don't hound me and you are great at helping a company draw up a job spec to get the best from the recruitment experience.

Selena Allwood has been working with us on a number of vacancies and has placed two candidates with us this year. Jemma Tarr has been supporting with our temp requirements. Good to deal with, they understand what we're looking for in terms of the fit with our business. Not pushy or overbearing.
