We are always interested in hearing from determined and driven individuals who have a passion for working with others.

Thank you for all your help during the recruitment process and for your kindness.

Thank you for your understanding during a difficult time, it was lovely of you to reach out to me. You have actually given me the determination to get back on track and see the light at the end of the tunnel!

My consultant was genuine, honest and approachable. Her professionalism is second to none and this is the reason I wouldn’t use any other recruitment consultant. In my time as a locum social worker working with her, I have been out of work for 0 days. Constantly presenting me new opportunity’s and always on hand to support.

I have been represented by Equinox for some time now. I have been approached by many other agencies to represent me, however the level of service, regular contact and professionalism received from has been exceptional.

I feel very valued and always listened to. I honestly believe that Equinox consultants always went the extra mile for me. They have worked exceptionally hard, especially in these difficult times. Not only their expertise and professionalism, but their politeness and consideration in all matters.

I have worked as an Independent Social Worker for approximately eleven years. My reason for choosing Equinox was based solely on the knowledge that I would work with Tara as my recruitment consultant. After ten years of recruiting from agencies as a Manager, I knew that Tara would represent me effectively as a candidate when I was looking for work.

Over a number of years, I have developed an good working relationship with Tara, both of us believe that effective relationships are key to positive outcomes. It is with this in mind, that Tara has spent time understanding my role, skills,  interests and health and wellbeing to match me to the right contracts. In turn, this has enabled me to develop a good reputation which has seen me progress from Team Manager to Head of Service.

I have found Jackie to be patient and sympathetic when listening to my employment needs and understanding the need to balance these with home-life and personal commitments.

Jackie is always realistic regarding job roles and opportunities and this has enabled me to make considered decisions about contracts. I can always reach Jackie and if she is in meetings, she will always, without fail, call me back. If needed Jackie has visited me, when I have needed additional support and spent time with me to consider my options. When Jackie is on leave, cover is arranged with telephone numbers and emails.
