"First impressions really matter in the HR and recruitment sectors. I found all communications with Dane Partnership to be clear and accurate. Dane Partnership’s interface between the employer and me were seen to be open, honest and always helpful. I consider the service and support provided to have been professional and of a standard well above the norm for the industry. My dealings with Dane Partnership have been positive, worthwhile and enjoyable. I always felt that the agent had my best interests in mind and that they understood the business for which they were recruiting and just as important, they clearly understood the discipline in which I had experience and sought future employment. To this end, I am happy to provide a reference herewith and will certainly recommend the services of Dane Partnership to other businesses and acquaintances. I wish the partnership continued growth and success in the future."

"I experienced 'above and beyond' service when going through The Dane Partnership with regards to looking for my Industrial Placement year position as part of my Univeristy course. For what can be a daunting and stressful process, Lorna as well as her team made it very comfortable for me and prepared me in such a manner I surprised myself in the interview process. Lorna is one of those few people that cares so much for her work it shines through in the people she works with. I cannot reiterate enough how much I would recommend utilising the services of the Dane Partnership as they guide you from the beginning, through to the end in what is usually a difficult situation."
"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."
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.
A huge thank you to Lorna and the team at Dane Partnership for providing myself, a newly graduated candidate, with excellent service during my job application. They were extremely efficient and reliable throughout the whole process which was a welcome relief from my experiences with other recruitment agencies! Lorna was fantastic, establishing a good relationship with myself and providing continued support and detailed feedback for my following interviews with the company. Thank you also for the card sent to my new office – such a lovely surprise and epitomises their brilliant and personal service. They are an outstanding company and I highly recommend them to anyone searching for a job.

'All the staff from The Dane Partnership are friendly and show a caring and personalised touch at all points in the recruitment process whilst still being extremely professional. Their contact before and just after starting working is not something I would not have expected from an agency, but then the company is not a typical agency as it aims to match up employers and potential recruits rather than a constant bombardment of irrelevant opportunities.'
From the outset, Lorna was hugely supportive and proactive in my placement in my new role. She was helpful throughout the interview process and beyond - and I would recommend the Dane Partnership highly.
"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."

"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."
“Let me first start by saying thank you, again, not only for putting me forward for this great role but also the card you and your team got me. What a lovely surprise on my first day! In regards to the position... I don't think the role could be more perfect for me, I am so excited to get my teeth into all of the projects and cannot wait to put my own spin on things! I find myself going to bed each night so excited for my next day at work, so for that I am forever grateful to you and your team!”
I would like to thank Natalie and the team at Dane Partnership. I was regularly kept updated throughout the recruitment journey and was made to feel comfortable in my interviews. All aspects were dealt with very professionally and I am pleased to have had the successful outcome of being placed in a new role that I feel very well suited for thanks to the thoroughness of the process. Thank you to everyone!
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
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.

They were efficient and communicative throughout the recruitment process; ensuring that I understood and was prepared.

"The Dane Partnership have always provided a highly professional, personalised service when recruiting staff for us. They take time to understand the business, the requirements and always give 100% commitment to the task in hand."
Client Testimonial - Managing Partner
Working with the Natalie and the Dane Partnership to find my current role was a real pleasure – and not only because I was selected for the role! Within a few days of submitting my online application I was contacted for an initial telephone interview conducted by Natalie. Throughout the process all requirements and expectations for the different stages were communicated clearly and well in advance of any appointments, so that I had maximum time to prepare. I greatly appreciated the timely updates on the recruitment process and all the support throughout. Having been through interview processes, with a number of recruitment agencies, I can say that Natalie and the Dane Partnership were the only ones where I felt that they personally knew and remembered my CV and the role I was applying for.
Kristin Schroeder - March 2016
I was very impressed with the friendly yet professional nature of everyone I dealt with whilst applying for a graduate job through The Dane Partnership. The level of support I received was outstanding and I am very grateful for all of the advice and help that they gave me. The process was quick and I was kept informed at all times throughout my application – something that seems to be increasingly rare nowadays. I was very impressed with the way they took an interest in me as a person and not just as another name on another CV. I would highly recommend The Dane Partnership to anyone and would like to thank them again for all of their help.
"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."
