"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
First of all I would like to thank yourself and Lorna for your continued communication and support throughout the application process; I've felt up to date and reassured at all times which has really helped.I was very impressed with the structure of the process, and it was nice that this continued at the assessment centre; it's clear the business is incredibly ambitious and I cannot wait to play a part in its success going forward.
"I solely head up the HR function for our organisation and was recommended by a trusted supplier to contact Lorna Dane of the Dane Partnership to assist me with my HR and Recruitment needs.Lorna Dane has proved to be an excellent choice of business partner. Her professionalism, knowledge, and experience has been invaluable and her commitment to providing an HR consultancy to our organisation has been money well spent. She is a pleasure to work with and delivers a superb all round HR service. I have no hesitation in recommending the Dane Partnership."
Client Testimonial - HR Manager
"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."
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.

"I deal with recruitment agencies all the time in my profession, however my experience of using Dane Partnership was by far the most professional and uncomplicated service I have come across so far in my career to date. They were efficient and communicative throughout the recruitment process; ensuring that I understood and was prepared. Without doubt, I can say that their support and feedback had a significant impact on my securing this position. I am very grateful."
Client Testimonial - HR Advisor
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!
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.
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.
"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,
Working with Dane Partnership has been a pleasure. The service from Ellen and Lorna was impeccable. Ellen Spencer was amazing, always ready to help me whenever I needed it throughout the whole process. She provided me with great detail of feedback at each stage which isn’t common these days. Lorna Dane was very warming, inviting and made the interview process a lot more manageable. The service overall was remarkably quick and wonderful. Cannot express enough gratitude to the Dane Partnership team.

"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
The Dane Partnership have been an incredible company to have worked with. I applied for a Junior Designer position and from the word go Lorna and the team kept me up to date and informed about every detail of the application. They were so accommodating of my work schedule when arranging interviews and meetings, and went above and beyond to make to whole process a very comfortable and enjoyable one.
There was support from them until the very end and I believe a good friendship developed throughout the journey. I am forever grateful to Lorna, and the rest of the staff at The Dane Partnership as without them there is no way I would be where I am now: which is looking forward to starting my new role in the new year.
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.
"Our previous experience with agencies have been a disaster! Dane Partnership spent a lot of time and effort researching our requirements, writing job descriptions and candidate profiling at the start of the assignment. We were delighted at how detailed and accurate their report was. We used the Dane Partnership meeting facilities for first interviews, which gave us the time and privacy to manage the process away from the distractions of our offices. The candidates were all exceptional and far exceeded our expectations. In the current climate, going the extra mile is a necessity rather than a luxury and a philosophy we share in our own business. From the outset, Dane Partnership provided both exceptional service and support and more important, they delivered the results we needed.
We very much look forward to working with Lorna again soon."
Client Testimonial - Director
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.
Abbie Walker - Graduate
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
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.
"I applied for a graduate role for a company through The Dane Partnership. Before I was contacted for a telephone interview, Lorna personally made sure that I was completely aware of the job profile. Lorna works very closely with the hiring company - to a level where I believed she was the person hiring me. Later I was contacted again for a face to face interview with Lorna and another assessor from the company. She had an interview with me prior to the one with the assessor which eased me into the process. I was again contacted for an assessment centre and conveyed the required information. I was regularly contacted and kept up to date on the status of my application and the reply was very quick. She had Ellen as her representative at the assessment centre to assist the candidates. The overall experience was very good and supportive - by far the best graduate interview process. Many thanks to Lorna and Ellen for the assistance."
"I was impressed with the Dane Partnership during my recent application for a graduate development position. The support provided by Lorna and her team was first class throughout. Organisation, feedback and decisions were communicated quickly, honestly, and with sensitivity as and when needed. They display a genuine respect for and interest in the people they work with making the whole process far more personal than I have experienced in the past. I recommend them highly, they are excellent recruitment HR professionals."
