Black Cherry Recruitment Ltd believe that the ‘proof is in the pudding’. We don’t operate a pushy sales approach, instead we let our hard work, knowledge and results speak for themselves…

Here is what some of our clients and candidates say about us…

John Butters, Director

We have just been on a significant recruitment drive. Black Cherry Recruitment supported us by sourcing some strong candidates at all levels. Interviews were arranged in an efficient and timely manner and just three weeks after briefing Black Cherry we have filled all of the positions that we were recruiting for.

Ian Williams, Director Of Communications
Think Money Group

Helen has an excellent knowledge of the PR and Comms market in the region. As a result she was able to pull together a shortlist of candidates that met my brief very quickly. She was also great at supporting me and the candidates through the interview and offer process.

James Crawford, MD
PR Agency One Ltd

Black Cherry Recruitment offers employers like me excellent and personal service. They know the PR market inside out and only provide me with relevant and targeted CVs. The team are reputable, trustworthy and Helen is genuinely a nice person who you can easily share a glass of wine with (and there aren’t many recruiters that I would say that about!)

Sandy Lindsay, MD
Tangerine, Manchester 

Helen has assisted Tangerine in its recruitment for a number of years. She has always worked hard at finding the right candidates that not only have the right skills but who fit culturally into our business. In addition to her professional approach and success rate in finding us the right staff, Helen has always been a delight to deal with as it is clear that she cares about what she does and I have always found her genuine and friendly to work with.

Suzy Glaskie, Joint MD
Peppermint PR, Cheshire 

In all the years that we’ve been working with Helen, she’s proved herself to be someone who’s exceptionally professional and helpful at all times and who continually goes the extra mile for her clients. She really does care about securing the best outcome for both clients and candidates, taking the time and trouble to get to know both properly. Importantly, she totally “gets” the PR industry and has an instinctive feel for what an agency needs.

Greg Felgate, Associate Director
Finn PR, Leeds

We have used Black Cherry Recruitment’s services a few times over the years… They are friendly, professional and knowledgeable about what it takes to succeed in PR, which has resulted in them finding us the right candidates, that not only have the right skills but who also have the right personality fit. I would have no problem recommending them to other people in the industry.

Sarah Miskell, Corporate Responsibility Director
Warburtons, Bolton

We discovered Black Cherry Recruitment Ltd through a recommendation and throughout our dealings with them, we have found them to be professional, enthusiastic and an absolute pleasure to deal with. They took the time to understand our overall business and recruitment needs, establishing who would be best suited in terms of experience, skills and personality. They supplied us with quality candidates, who came to meet us well prepared and fully briefed on what we are looking for, making the recruitment process straightforward and efficient, for everyone involved. We have no hesitation in recommending Black Cherry Recruitment Ltd as a company who genuinely care about their clients and candidates and who happily go the extra mile to get the job done.
