Testimonials from candidates

The Recruitment Gateway provides a fantastic resource for job-seekers, as some of the comments from candidates testify:

"I found the process of applying for roles through the Recruitment Gateway easy and intuitive and I found my current role through the gateway.  I believe this is partly down to the strong relationship that Claire [Angus, head of Recruitment Gateway] has with the companies advertising on the site and knowing what type of candidates they are looking for.

"The Recruitment events are a great way of meeting companies face to face; sometimes you feel your CV may get lost in the masses. At the event, you can go along and chat directly with companies you are interested in, making it easier to get yourself heard in a competitive market. I would definitely use the Recruitment Gateway when I am ready to take the next step in my career."
Dawn Mason – Senior Marketing Executive – Blacktrace Holdings

"Cambridge Network provides an invaluable service for employees looking for work in the tech industry in the Cambridge area. Their Recruitment Gateway provides an easy to use portal to browse the majority of positions on offer in a single place. My most recent job search was performed using Cambridge Network as well as via local tech recruitment agencies: I found the Cambridge Network site more useful as a greater number of roles are advertised and all information on those roles is provided directly, allowing more thorough independent searches and facilitating direct interaction with the potential employer. I found my current role via Cambridge Network and recommend to it to anyone searching for work around Cambridge."

"I was delighted to find my current role at Analytik via the Cambridge Network website in April 2016. I found the job page a very useful resource and particularly helpful when you are looking for a local job with an established company. There is a good range of roles on offer and the registration process is simple to use. Thank you. I would definitely recommend your website to friends and colleagues. "

"“Recently I have used Cambridge Network to successfully apply for a R&D Mechanical Engineering position at Xaar. The process was quick, simple and uncomplicated, removing many of the pitfalls of filling in multiple applications forms for each individual perspective company. I would happily use Cambridge Network again, but hopefully not soon as I am thoroughly enjoying my current role at Xaar and enjoying all of the technical challenges it brings!"
James Hall - Mechanical Engineer

"Claire [Angus, head of Recruitment Gateway] at Cambridge Network is exactly what one needs from someone in recruitment: she has empathy, a good memory and great matching skills. I wouldn't have known about the opportunity I am about to embark on without Claire. I will be eternally grateful to her for pointing me in the right direction of the Recruitment Gateway and sincerely hope that others will put their trust in her and the site the way I have and receive equally excellent results!"
Sarah Chapman - Accountant/Office Manager -PragmatIC Printing Ltd

"I first heard about the Recruitment Gateway when I noticed the ad for its Job Event in the Cambridge News, where Cambridge Network had listed an impressive number of employers that would be attending. I was also impressed with the company’s sense of Corporate responsibility because the website lists some of the community events that have been supported in the past.

"The recruitment event I attended through the Recruitment Gateway was a good setting for job seekers to become more than just the sheet of paper that their resume was written on, in a less stressful environment. I was happy to meet the various Technology businesses and I even attended two seminars which were of personal interest. Overall, I had a very good experience with the Cambridge Network and would recommend it to any job seeker in the Cambridge area."
Adrian Roberts - Network Coordinator - Excell Group

"I was advised to take a look at Cambridge Network by one of my friends and I have to say my experience of the service they have provided has been excellent. The website was really easy to navigate, with regards to uploading my CV and personal details. It was easy to search for jobs as they have such a wide variety and on the occasions I spoke to someone they were always polite, helpful and professional.

"I was provided with details of one of the recruitment events that Cambridge Network organised which was at the West Cambridge University site and it was a great opportunity to make contact with a large variety of industries. I truly believe Cambridge Network do the very best they can to place people in employment. I would highly recommend the service to any of my friends if they ever need to find employment in the future."
Christina Ingleson - Reception/Office Assistant - Cambridge Design Partnership

"As a current job seeker, Cambridge Network Recruitment Gateway has been an incredibly useful tool for finding jobs in the Cambridge area. The website has several ways to easily sort the jobs into those applicable. It also has useful information for the application process such as CV tips which I have made use of.  As well as the online job searching options, the Cambridge Network team hosted a recruitment fair that I attended in September, prior to beginning my job search. I went along just to get a feel for what sort of jobs are out there. There were a wide range of companies represented in addition to fascinating and engaging workshops available throughout the day covering topics from CV advice to specific scientific content, all presented by potential employers. I am currently making use of the business cards I gathered at the event and applying for several roles with the companies I chatted with. Having been in direct contact with the Cambridge Network team I have found them incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and passionate about helping me find a new career."
