  • Hundreds of practices recommend FPM recruitment services

The whole recruitment process was stress-free. Heather was excellent in understanding our Practice requirements. She arranged adverts, helped us with the short-listing process by categorising applicants into green/yellow/red categories based on their experience/qualifications/our requirements etc. The Zoom interviews were well organised and Heather sent us a list of questions to choose from and arranged second round of F2F interviews as well. We have appointed a very good candidate. We have never used a recruitment agency before but would definitely recommend FPM Group and Heather was brilliant. (August 2023)

The whole process has been very efficient and even enjoyable! Heather got in touch very quickly to explain the process and understand our practice and our requirements. We had more applicants than I think we would have attracted had we tried to recruit without help. The interview process was fantastic too. Despite all partners (8) being involved it was very organised and the format was enjoyable but allowed us to learn a lot about the candidates in a short space of time. We have hopefully recruited a brilliant candidate and are delighted with the outcome. Heather has been fantastic throughout and we cant thank her enough. (Whitby Health Partnership, June 2023)

Very professional from the outset. The initial response to my call was responded to quickly, the initial explanation was excellent and not hard sell, Heather’s involvement was highly professional, timely and clear from the start of our meeting. The online 1 hr meeting to gather information was a model in how to chair well and manage time. She collated our ideas as well as the online info into a very good document. The guidance through the interview process – from planning to execution – was very good indeed. She made us all feel involved secure & supported. She was good at giving her impartial views yet also giving a view – which we needed. (May 2023)

Clear and supportive throughout, single point of contact, paperwork/footwork of recruitment all supported, filtering of applicants, space to make our decisions, guidance only when needed or sought. Just the right balance of management of both parties and neutral hosting. (May 2023)

Was very pleased with the entire process. Tracy was great throughout – providing all the details, information and support we needed and was always there to answer any questions quickly and efficiently. Several excellent candidates were found, they were graded appropriately, and the interviews set up to run very smoothly. (May 2023)
