Angi and her team at My Job Group have provided CFC with an extremely professional and flexible solution to fit our needs. The support and attention to detail provided by Angi takes a huge amount of manual work out of my hands, supporting and advising while providing key statistics needed to perfectly tailor our target audience. Since working alongside My Job Group we have been using all aspects of the job board and without them, we wouldn’t be where we are now ... Thank you.

Legal Costs Consultancy Ltd would like to say a big thank you to Craig Burkert for all his time and advice in putting together our advertisement for a Cost Drafting position at our company. Within an hour of the job going live onto www.MyLiverpoolJobs.co.uk we starting receiving quality CV’s. With the legal industry being so niche it was pleasant surprise to find a cost effective, recruitment resource such as MyJobGroup. LCC will definitely be using www.MyJobGroup.co.uk again when a different position within the company needs to be filled.

"Hi there, Just a few words about the site. I rang you up Monday and had an advert on the site within an hour. I had 12 CV's by the end of the day on Tuesday. I rang them on Wednesday and had 2 new members of staff starting on Thursday. Fantastic. So much quicker than using a paper advert.”
Vince Connelly. Field Sales Director. Richer Sounds PLC.
"Hi John, many thanks for your help in getting our listings set up nationally, can I say we have been truly staggered by the response, I think we have been running for around 3 weeks and have had over 20,000 viewings of our adverts and well over 200 applications, every morning my inbox is full of new enquiries. If I come across anyone who is looking for somewhere to list jobs I would have no hesitation to recommend your organisation. Kind regards".
David L Fryatt, Group Managing Director, Fortuna Corporation Ltd.

"After spending so much money on staff recruitment over the last few years I was delighted with the price and services that my job group supplied. Amy who is our account representative has been so helpful from the beginning to the end of the recruitment process, I would definitely recommend her and My job group for any company trying to recruit and avoid the massive take on fees. I will continue to use them for all recruitment at Marshalls PLC Maltby works."

"I have used MyJobGroup website for countless vacancies we have had throughout England and Scotland over the past couple of years. I have found the process to be a complete success and all my thanks has to go to the efficient and professional manner of their staff, especially my dedicated account manager, Louise. I would recommend the myjobgroup website to aid anyone in their recruitment needs without a second thought."
Andrew Renshaw, National Sales Co-ordinator, Jani King
I would firstly like to say a huge thank you to Bridget Newton for all the help and support she has given me and for making things so uncomplicated. Recruiting sales executives for a company who have only ever used newspaper advertising to attract staff I knew I would have my work cut out convincing them to try something new. I met with Bridget and having discussed the various options available from My Job Group we settled on job postings in the relevant areas and a CV search. Everything was explained to me clearly and any questions I had were answered promptly. Although I was sure this was the way forward others were not. I needed a good result from the jobs I posted to silence the sceptics.
The result I got was amazing. We had instant success. Not only did we receive a high volume of CV’s almost over night but the quality of the applicants was fantastic. Even before the vacancies became inactive we had successfully interviewed and trained more than 10 new sales people 4 marketing team leaders and 2 customer care advisors. The sites are easy to navigate for both recruiters and applicants. Recruiting new staff can often be extremely time consuming and at times quite tedious, My Job Group has made it fast, effective and enjoyable. On price, 1 ad placed in a national newspaper for 1 day cost more than 100 job postings with myjobgroup and gave us a fraction of the result. I would have no problem recommending the site to anyone looking for new staff and with our ongoing recruitment plan I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with MyJobGroup.co.uk.
Clare Jackson, Recruitment and personnel manager, Anglian Group
I would like to say a big thank you to Neil Wragg and My Job Group for all the help and support I received in placing and filling my vacancies on their website. In addition to the advert being extremely cost effective, I had complete confidence that my vacancies were being looked after and monitored throughout the whole month. After successfully recruiting a whole team at our new store in Cambridge, I have just placed another advert for our next store due to open shortly and will continue to use My Job Group for all future vacancies.
Gemma Ochiltree, Personnel Manager, The Pen Shop
We have now filled the position (through yourselves) successfully.Can I thank you for your efforts in filling both our positions.The process was both efficient & painless, I would certainly use yourselvesin the future.
Malcolm Smith, Production Manager, Ulmke Metals
We have recently started using My West Midlands Jobs after we held reserves due to the poor performance we had previously received from competitor job boards Monster, Fish4Jobs and Total Jobs. After the first 48 hours of using My West Midlands Jobs, our expectations of how a job board should perform were finally both met and overcompensated for. With the continued help and support from our Account Manager Lee Murray, we have found My West Midlands Jobs to truly be one of the best job boards we have encountered. All of our consultants continually receive a constant flow of high calibre candidates matching all of our clients desired criteria. This is also strongly supported by the sales figures we are now achieving. This could not have been possible without the assistance of the My West Midlands Jobs website and their team of dedicated staff. In the last two months we have watched what should be our quietest months turn into two of our best months so far this year. I would like to personally thank all the staff and the creators of the My West Midlands Jobs website and would strongly recommend to anybody who is looking to find a solution to their recruitment needs to contact My West Midlands Jobs for their professional assistance.
Alana Bagshaw - Commercial Recruitment Manager - Try Temps Limited
Aspire People have been using My West Midlands Jobs for the past year or so. As an established recruitment agency we are constantly in need of high quality and professional candidates. We have found that the standard of candidates we get through this site is second to none. We receive a flow of cvs from the site and are constantly impressed as to how they are local people looking for local jobs - this obviously saves our consultants a lot of time as they find they are never chasing people who are miles away or not really looking for work.
On top of all of this we have found the support we get from the team at the Birmingham office is superb and they are always happy to go that extra mile to make sure we receive relevant candidates – and of informing us of extra branding that is available that will make our vacancies more prominent on the site, they always have a solution.
Overall our experience with My West Midlands Jobs has been a very positive one and the site has become essential to our company. I would definitely recommend the site to other local companies.
Louise Breheny, Director, Aspire People
I just wanted to email you to say how successful I have found the CV alerts section of your website.I recruit for volume contracts and every morning without fail I have a list of people to call through who have either renewed their cv details or are a new user of mybirminghamjobs. Most importantly their criteria match what I am recruiting for.
Sally Chesterton, Staffing Manager, Adecco
After 12 years of being in recruitment I have had numerous calls from job sites asking if I would be interested in subscribing to them. My job group contacted me on a variety of occasions when it was difficult to talk and Chris accepted this (very unusual for the majority of sales individuals!) and diarised to call me back on 8 separate occasions and without fail called me back at the times I haFd suggested - I hasten to add we trialed the site for 1 month and have had excellent results. The service from the initial call to the final signature on the contract has been superb. As a consultancy we use 6 job sites ...all household names - so far MyJobGroup has proven to have the best service.
Charlotte Bell - Director Bell Cornwall Associates
"Here at GCL, we started utilising My Birmingham Jobs in September 07 based on their excellent cost effective packages on offer and our recruitment needs during a busy period. We received a good response to our advert along with excellent account management, support and advice from the team at My Birmingham Jobs. Advertising on the site not only produced good results but increased our company awareness due to the excellent branding on offer. Next time we are recruiting we will definitely be in contact with My Birmingham Jobs".
Ranjit Gill, HR Manager, GCL Direct
We began utilising www.mybirminghamjobs.co.uk in July '07 and received an instant response to the vacancies posted. Having recently re-signed for another three months, we have found the response to be consistently strong across all of the sectors that we recruit for. The CV database is also a very valuable tool and has assisted us to fulfill our clients requirements. We have been very happy with the customer service received from the Birmingham team and hope to continue our mutually beneficial relationship for the foreseable future.
Dawn Faulkner, Divisional Leader, Katie Bard

Jody, Graduate Marketing
"Hays Contact Centres is a very keen user of My Birmingham Jobs - it has several benefits for our business, the main one being that the site works on our behalf - once we post a job, alerts go to candidates, who in return contact us, which saves us having to go and search for CVs. We have a great response from the adverts we post on My Birmingham jobs, and make regular work placements from it. Many Thanks"
Nayala Hussain, Birmingham Office Manager, Hays Contact Centres
"As the the largest UK owned recruitment communications agency, at Barkers we need to be sure of spending client budget wisely whether using on or offline solutions. MyjobGroup has provided the local geographical impact across the North of England that we and our clients need. The fact that clients as diverse as O2, Sheffield Hallam University, University of Leeds and Ventura have been increasing their expenditure significantly is testament to the return on investment experienced by these clients. And as a digital media solution, whether using myleedsjobs, mysheffieldjobs mymanchesterjobs or mybirminghamjobs we know that not only can we be sure of the highest standards of customer service, but also reach the candidates that our clients are after in an ever more competitive market. We're watching the geographical expansion with interest!"
Alistair, Regional Director
Daniel, Just a quick note to say thank you for your assistance with our recruitment drive. We have never used a recruitment website for this type of work before, and from looking at the candidates who came from your link, the standard was very good. This was also highlighted in the appointed a new Graduate who was through myjobgroup. Again, many thanks and look forward to working with you again.
Sarah, Bid Co-ordination Manager, A4E
Claire, just to let you know the site has been working fantastically and I have arranged several interviews.
Rosie, STL Training
'My Birmingham Jobs have proved to be an excellent source of quality candidates for us. We are a Birmingham based teaching recruitment agency and have always struggled to find local quality candidates using the national online recruiters and the local press has always been very expensive and does not guarantee results. My Birmingham Jobs offered us the chance to target local candidates using a cost effective media.Within a few days of posting jobs on the site we received the CV of an excellent English teacher who was interested in one of our vacancies. We emailed the CV over to the school and within the week the candidate was interviewed and offered the job. The fee for this placement has paid for the cost of advertising with My Birmingham Jobs many times over and since then we have had many quality candidates apply for our vacancies. My Birmingham Jobs has proved to be an excellent source of quality local candidates at a cost effective price. We have found the service offered and the quality of candidates to be excellent and we look forward to working closely with you in the future.'
L Doherty, Recruitment Manager, Supply Network
"I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of Citistaff Solutions for the superb quality service you have provided to us. The standard of customer service we have received from the team at my birmingham jobs has been second to none, alongside the overwhelming numbers of high calibre candidates who have responded to our job adverts. We have had successful job-matches and as a result of advertising our own vacancies on the website, Citistaff have also recruited 2 members of staff! Thank you!"
Rachel Recruitment Manager Citistaff Solutions
