I’ve been recruiting to my new staff team at Granny’s Secret and Helen Sanders of Your People Partners helped me to do so very easily. She understood what I needed as a business owner as well as what the actual business needed from the new member of staff.

I found Helen was really in tune with our requirements and fully understood the nuances of our brief. She identified some excellent candidates for the role we were seeking to fill and ultimately found us the person we had been looking for. Helen succeeded where some competitors had most definitely failed. I would certainly work with Helen again and recommend her highly.

I would to express my huge thanks and appreciation to this lovely lady and her team at Your People Partners. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to recruit a member of staff. They are efficient, knowledgeable, professional yet so approachable and friendly. No question, so matter how “stupid” I thought it was, went unanswered. They have a tried and tested process which really worked for me and the best part is that it was so simple and easy to follow.
