Thank you to Lorna & the Dane Partnership team. I have been so impressed with my journey, from the initial screening call to the appointment stage, the service is simply a class act.
The team at Dane Partnership are beyond professional, distinguished, courteous & very efficient, led by Lorna who has been both nurturing & continually imperturbable.
I look forward to the next stage of my career and again thank the Dane Partnership family. The service is highly recommended for candidates & clients alike.
"We recently had an excellent experience with the Dane Partnership who gave us an unrivalled service compared with other agencies we have used in the past. It was clear that Lorna had done her research and knew our business well. I especially liked the detailed applicant files which I have never come across before. The Dane Partnership presented us with a shortlist of individuals who all 'fitted the bill' and we were happily in the unusual position of being able to choose from six excellent candidates. We are delighted with our new recruit and will definitely be back for more."
Client Testimonial - Dawn
From the start, my application was dealt with in an organised and professional manner. Lorna, Ellen and Ross were very efficient, friendly and supportive. I would highly recommend The Dane Partnership.
"Lorna has played a vital contribution to the agency's ongoing success in ensuring we attract and retain the right talent. Relocating the agency from London to the Berkshire area in 2011 was a huge decision (and yes a selfish one in that I now have a 3 minute versus a 3 hour commute) and we were filled with trepidation about the ability to find local talent. Lorna has worked exceptionally hard at proving that the local area works for our business and within a short period of time she's recruited us some top notch talent. She's a highly valued member of our growing team and I can't recommend her highly enough."
Client Testimonial - Founder & CEO,
"It has been an honour to work with Lorna and her team in the last few months. I recently applied for a graduate role for a large manufacturing company through The Dane Partnership. The process from the initial application right through to the assessment centre was flawless and by far the best I have seen. Throughout the process there was regular communication and timely responses from both Lorna and Ellen. I would like to give a big thanks to Lorna and Ellen who were not only highly professional but also very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend The Dane Partnership for anyone looking to start a promising career."
Walking out of your offices I was struck at how refreshing it was to meet, greet and converse with someone that works in recruitment who is straight, ethical, transparent and is a pleasure to deal with. I read all your testimonials that feature on your website and slightly dismissed them as rather enthusiastic positive comments. I was wrong. Apologies for that. You were and your organisation was the living embodiment of those fantastic comments. I wish all recruitment companies could be like you! Alas they have some work to do. Keep up the good work!
Thank you once again and I wish you personally and professionally all the very best.
"I have previously been through a couple of assessment centres. Nervousness and tiredness due to travel usually have a negative impact on the candidate's performance however this was taken into consideration and these issues tackled by offering an informal dinner with the interviewers as well as a night at a hotel. In terms of the assessment centre itself, we were exposed to real life situations: negotiating, presenting results to the managers and solving real life problems. Giving us feedback straight after each exercise, making us realise where and how we could have improved. As well as that, the rapid response in terms of getting through the different stages from day 1 is something we appreciate as unsuccessful candidates have time to explore other work opportunities."
"If you are looking forward to a thoroughly professional service at the highest level then look no further than Dane Partnership. They took the time to understand our requirements and only put forward those candidates who met or exceeded them."
Client Testimonial - F.D
"Dane Partnership are the first agency I have found that understood my requirements and were honest. They offered me advice and support both in finding a job, and more recently within the job. My interview with Lorna reassured me that Dane Partnership listen to the candidates and employer's requirements and only link them together if both parties are the right match. I have recommended Dane Partnership to my family and friends for future job seeking and advice."
Client Testimonial - Marketing Communications Manager
Ellen is well connected, knowledgeable and a professional consultant, who went above and beyond to find and negotiate my new role. Her ability to understand my requirements and most importantly be discreet, gave me the comfort and confidence that I think is hard to find in the recruitment industry. Thank you Ellen, I cannot recommend you and the team at Dane Partnership highly enough.
Emma D'Elia - March 2016
Natalie and the team at Dane partnership are extremely professional and are the most complete recruitment agency tailored for everyone’s needs. Brilliant communications and support throughout the recruitment process I can’t thank the team enough for all the help and assistance.
My experience of the Dane Partnership has been a very positive one. Ever since getting in touch about the role, I have had exceptional service from all the staff. Natalie, Lorna and the rest of the team were quick with their responses and all their communication had a personal touch, something which is missing in a lot of bigger recruitment firms. I cannot thank them enough for their help and assistance and would definitely recommend them to others.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Lorna and her team at Dane Partnership for my new placement. Throughout the recruitment process Lorna was very professional and supportive. Her communication at every stage was excellent. Dane Partnership made the recruitment process stress free and their attention to detail ensured that I and the position applied for was the right fit for all. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional, supportive and honest recruitment service.
As a job candidate, The Dane Partnership was invaluable for me. Lorna and Natalie were very professional and immediately put me at ease, giving me encouragement all the way, including great pointers for the interview and company I was put forward for. They explained all the steps of the process clearly, making sure I understood the role entirely. I feel very well supported and will definitely would use The Dane Partnership should the need arise in the future. I would highly recommend them, and will never be able to thank them enough for their commitment to me.
Jove Tocher - Designer
From the start, Lorna has been fantastic and kept me up to date with any development with my application. The rest of the team at Dane Partnership were equally as helpful which made the recruitment process as stress free and simple as possible. Lorna and her team have placed me in a great role and I would recommend their services to anyone.
"It has been nothing short of amazing working with The Dane Partnership. I totally enjoyed the process from the day Natalie called me, until I secured my dream role as a Account and Project manager. The Dane partnership is not your everyday high street recruitment agency, what they offer is a bespoke service which matches you perfectly with your desired role. Natalie was very professional yet friendly and helpful. She ensured that the interview process ran smoothly while working with my tight schedule. She also kept me up to date on a daily basis and gave me a lot of tips and encouragement. They also maintain a very good relationship with their clients and know exactly what they want from candidate. I look forward to starting my new role and enjoying the support still on offer during my settling period."
Either as a prospective client or a career hungry candidate please do not think that the Dane Partnership is just another recruitment agency... it’s much more that. As a previous senior leader in some large international businesses with skills and experience in various disciplines including sales, operations and finance etc, coupled with my own fairly specific career aspirations, I am under no misconceptions about NOT being the easiest candidate to place. Let me explain... although I was successful in securing an offer, only a set of personal circumstances actually prevented me from accepting the position. In my scenario it was clear that the Lorna and Dane Partnership team have strong, trusted and valued relationships built over several years, and where their highly intuitive and expert approach was to prove invaluable. I have, as a consequence of my experiences with Lorna and her team (but not Bazil I’m afraid) recommended several colleagues and have personally committed to making the Dane Partnership my first call when I’m considering any future talent needs for my business. A highly impressive, ethical and highly recommended talent team... this is not about fees, this is about right talent, right role for the right employer.
Wayne C, July 2018
The application process for PCC’s Management Development Programme run by Dane Partnership has been comprehensive, extremely well planned and executed professionally. Within a six-week period I completed an online application, telephone interview, personal interview, psychometric tests and an overnight assessment centre. I have applied to major engineering companies in the past and not had a response for months, with this process I always had a response within days. Furthermore, Ellen provided the most frequent, professional yet personal communication throughout the process that I have ever experienced. Finally, I actually enjoyed the application process and even if I had been unsuccessful in my application, I know that I would only have positive words for the best application process that I have been involved with or heard of. Many thanks to Ellen Spencer and Lorna Dane, I would not hesitate to recommend the Dane Partnership’s services to anyone in the future.
Tom Leigh - Graduate
The help and support that The Dane Partnership provided me during my recent application for a graduate development position was sensational. Both Lorna and Ellen were always in communication with myself and kept me informed at each step of the process. The process was very quick and efficiently run and by far the best I’ve ever been on. I am very grateful for all their support and advice they gave me throughout each stage. I would highly recommend The Dane Partnership to anyone who is searching for employment as both Lorna and Ellen are a pleasure to work beside and will support you from the offset.
Blair Sutherland - Graduate
"The service, assistance and support provided by Lorna Dane throughout the recruitment process was over and above of what I had experienced and expected from a recruiter. The very much personal and friendly approach that Lorna gave had made the process enjoyable. At all points she maintained contact and continuously kept me updated at each and every stage whilst being on hand to answer any questions that I had had for the graduate role. From an applicants perspective, The Dane Partnership should act as a model of how all recruitment campaigns should operate by for recruiting potential employees. To sum up in three words; professional, personal, and supportive."
