I have found Angela to be an absolute delight to work with. She is approachable, friendly and willing to spend time listening to you as well as giving valid, structured feedback. Throughout the whole process Angela has been pro-active, helpful and is quick to respond to any emails or phone calls even outside of working hours. I found her to be reliable, trustworthy, honest and down to earth. I would most certainly recommend working with Angela if you are looking to progress your career in the creative world. Thank you so much! "

"She made the whole process easy and fun!"

I recently made the big move from London to Manchester to further my career . I was lucky enough to get Hayley Murphy’s help with my transition in finding a new job that would match my experience, whilst also providing opportunities to grow and further my career. She has been absolutely amazing, she had a great knowledge of opportunities in the areas I was looking at, and made the whole process extremely easy (and also fun!). I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a new job, and I will definitely use her again in the future should I need her help again.

 

"I really value her help and advice..."

I recently applied for a job as a copywriter with Angela. Right from the beginning of my application, Angela was helpful, reliable and ever-friendly. Not only did she provide me with a clear view of the roles which I was applying for, but she was also always available to answer any questions which I had. Her enthusiasm and drive was evident as was her knowledge in the intricate art of maneuvering difficult interviews and applications. I was kept up to date throughout the entire process by both phone and email, and I really valued her help and advice. Thanks for everything!

 

"A real pleasure to work with..."

Hayley was a real pleasure to work with and I can’t thank her enough for her support and expertise. She understood my skills and strengths after our first meeting, and knew exactly where to contact. The whole process of applications and interviews was friendly and relatively stress free, which for me is perfect, because I’m one of life’s little worriers. Hayley constantly kept me informed with any news and was always very positive and reassuring. I'm happy to say I now have a full-time role that I’m really excited about, and it's all thanks to Hayley.

 

"Totally professional"

 

 I have worked with The Book for many years as a freelance production artworker. I have found them to be totally professional in their approach to clients and staff, placing the right people in the right place, with the right skills for the job required. I was placed at Schawk Manchester 4 years ago, and was taken on as permanent staff within the first year.The back up, infrastructure and knowledge of the industry gives me no hesitation in recommending The Book. If I ever go back to Freelance that's who I will be working for!

"Extremely useful for our business..."

Angela has proved extremely useful for our business. Early this year she suggested a senior and key member of our team. On that occasion we were the first to be notified regarding the candidate and we made an instant job offer due to experience and fit. Angela is professional and easy to get on with. She recently visited us to find out more regarding our plans for growth and recruitment requirements and is on the look out for more great talent. She seems to know (better than most) when she's found a great candidate and I hope to receive another excited phone call from her soon!
