What Our Customers Say…

Caroline at 80-20 was our key recruitment partner during my time as HR Director for Tchibo UK. It was at the height of our expansion period and Caroline’s role was to find and attract the very best candidate for each store manager position, often under extreme time pressure. She was exceptional, the perfect outsourcing partner. All new joiners talked about her during the induction days. Everyone thought she was a member of the team.

Caroline understood, embraced, and passionately sold the Tchibo business and culture. Caroline was very skilled assessing the right fit for the organisation and generally went above the terms of her contract to manage the contact during candidates’ notice periods and by ensuring they settled well in their new roles.

Caroline delivered recruitment services at their best.

Caroline supported me through 3 stages of the recruitment process.
She was knowledgeable about the company, she sent me lots of helpful information and she gave me the confidence to go out there and get my dream job!

Assistant Manager, American Golf

Caroline is an absolutely brilliant recruiter as she takes you through every step with so much help and knowledge. It felt like she had all the time in the world for me and would always be available if I had any questions or concerns. It’s not just the recruitment side that is great as she brings in so much human element for it too. We would wander off on chats too and it was lovely to have a friend during a scary process. Plus everything paid off as I got the job I applied for and I don’t think I could of done it without Caroline.

Store Manager, Coffee#1

I’ve dealt with Caroline at 80-20 on both sides of the fence – firstly she brought me into Phones 4u when the business began it’s rapid expansion, then she worked with me recruiting Sales Director’s for me. Caroline was great to deal with with on both counts. Highly personable, she was a great communicator, and as honest as any good recruiter could be. We continue to be in touch 15 years later, sharing connections and intel. That’s testament to her ability and integrity. Highly recommended.
Andy Beresford

Managing Director, Home Leisure Direct

Caroline is a highly professional consultant who focuses on the needs of the client. I have worked with her both in house and as a external client. The level of service and delivery was top class on both occasion. Caroline is pragmatic, realistic and delivers to agreed targets. Feedback from candidates was that the pre and post recruitment service was bespoke and they felt that they were valued by both her and the client.
Grant McEwan

HR Director, Amazon

I have relied on 80-20 to provide me with a consistently good quality and quantity of candidates for technical and commercial management roles. In addition I value their advice and market information I receive excellent service above and beyond the 9 to 5 service from some consultants and the support on particularly tricky roles is excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend 80-20.
Suzanne Taylor

CEO, Amazing Venues

I work with a lot of recruitment consultants and Caroline stands out in her desire and ability to understand the business and meet the specification of the role. She also does not give up on those roles that are difficult to fill. In the last three years Caroline has sourced 5 candidates for us who have been successful and good cultural fits. I would recommend you talk to Caroline about your recruitment needs.
