“I am very impressed with Hannah at Douglas Jackson. She is probably the most professional and competent head-hunter I have worked with. She consistently demonstrated dedication and professionalism in her support and advice. Hannah had a perfect understanding of the role, and was able to translate it into effective interview preparation. She is serious about her work and an extremely good communicator who works to support both the client and the candidate. Highly recommended !”
“Douglas Jackson (DJ) provide an executive search service. They spend time understanding your career aspirations and personal drivers. As opportunities become available DJ inform you of the position and discuss whether this would be a good match. From my experience the selection, interview and follow up have been outstanding with DJ being professional at all times, providing details of the process, interview arrangements, supporting preparatory information and keen to follow up with the candidate and client.
Key to the success of DJ is their ability to quickly establish a relationship built on trust with the candidate and client. In this way DJ are hugely successful in matching the candidate to the most appropriate opportunities and clients.
I’d definitely recommend DJ to colleagues and other organisations.”
“As a contact centre manager specialising in customer service, I have had to engage many recruitment firms as both a client and a candidate.
Having recently been placed in a role by Michelle at Douglas Jackson, I can honestly say that I have never encountered an individual, or company so in tune with the needs and intricacies of recruiting for the Contact Centre Industry
Michelle immediately understood my experience and suggested roles that perfectly suited my needs.
During the recruitment process she was always on hand to offer advice, guidance and feedback whilst promoting my strengths and skills to potential employees. Michelle also went the extra mile by securing me tickets to industry events as a guest of Douglas Jackson in order to provide networking and learning opportunities, this would later prove to be a crucial part of securing my placement with a Multi-National Company.
I would recommend any Contact Centre Executives looking to further their career to trust Douglas Jackson to find the right job for them.
“Lorraine helped me secure my current role and I couldn’t be happier! Throughout our relationship and the recruitment process I found Lorraine to be professional, thorough, quick to respond and supportive. She took time to understand my skills and capabilities but equally, what I wanted from a role and an employer. I really enjoyed working with Lorraine and would thoroughly recommend her and Douglas Jackson to others. Thanks Lorraine.”
“The whole experience from start to finish of being contacted by Stuart Brown from Douglas Jackson was pleasant, professional, appropriate and productive.
Originally I was contacted for a role that I initially rejected. Thinking nothing more of it a few weeks later Stuart Brown contacted me again. This time it was to inform me of an alternate position with the same client. This was far better suited to me and my circumstances at the time and so I began the journey of recruitment with Douglas Jackson.
Along the way it was evident that Stuart had listened carefully to my circumstances and was able to represent his client to me with clarity and candour. As expected I was provided with a documented job description, furthermore Stuart clearly knew his client and had understood this position well and was able provide me with valuable and insightful information about the client’s goals and strategy. He was able to paint a picture of a rewarding and energetic culture, with values that encouraged me to consider this role as a good match for my personal circumstances and values.
At each stage Stuart kept in contact and most strikingly of all when he said he would thereby keeping his promises, managing my expectations and keeping me appropriately informed about interviews etc, allowing me to feel comfortably prepared for each stage. After successful interviews he also demonstrated diligence and providing ongoing support for me and his client with follow up calls ensuring a smooth recruitment transition.
Overall I can comfortably recommend Stuart Brown and Douglas Jackson to any candidate or client looking for their next assignment or to fill their vacancies respectively. The Douglas Jackson approach to understanding their client and candidate needs, conducting searches and communicating with their client and candidates embodies professionalism – amongst the highest I have known.”

They deliver exactly what I expect of them time after time, and to a high standard. They remember what so many recruiters forget, “stay in touch, update, recommend roles and give advice” For me their secret has been that you have a relationship with them and are not just a number. They instil a confidence in me that my next big role is my next interview.”
Just a quick note to say thanks for your help during the interview process.
