My consultant was very easy to talk to and very informative giving me all the information I needed right from the start. Very friendly and approachable for any questions I had and rang me for regular check ups during the first few weeks to make sure I was settled in well.

Candidate

My consultant was extremely professional and helpful in their approach. I was kept informed with clear communication at all stages of the process. They guided me through the successful assignment leading to employment with a Very Reputable Client.

Candidate

I have worked through Advance TRS on a fairly regular basis over the past few years and my consultant has always kept me informed about positions that they have put me forward for, always checks on how I am doing. 

Candidate

I liked that my consultant listened carefully to what I was saying and was fully supportive and understanding my situation, in particular due to the fact that I had been with my previous company for almost 20 years, so not easy to leave. They did the extra steps in helping me sending the resignation email, when to send it, and providing moral support in that difficult moment. They left me as well a message to wish me good luck for my first day at the new company just before starting.

Candidate

Using an agency like Advance TRS helped me see that I had transferrable skills I could use across sectors. Their knowledge gave me the confidence in my capabilities when I couldn’t see them myself, which was really encouraging.

Candidate

My consultant had great knowledge and knew how to match the CV to the job position. He is professional, knowledgeable and approachable. He asked the right questions at the introductory interview and collected all required information in addition to my CV to communicate to the new employer. He kept me informed during the whole period with regular phone calls to ensure a smooth process from the start, to the interview, the negotiations, signing of the contract and onboarding. I highly recommend Advance TRS for anyone wanting to find a matching job opportunity.

Candidate

I can honestly say the service provided to me is brilliant. My consultant has consistently kept me in the loop with everything and has been a great help for me. Very professional and approachable person who has always gone above and beyond. I would always recommend TRS to any work colleagues and friends.
