I used the services of LSA recruitment whilst with Goldshield for several recruitment projects. I my experience, too many agencies bombard their clients with irrelevant and poorly vetted CV’s in the hope of scoring a hit. The LSA screening process is of such a high quality and rigour, that I would invariably interview each of the candidates put forward - something that no other agency has achieved. The time saved not ploughing through dozens of incompatible CV’s was therefore considerable.

This high standard of suitability of role and candidate is due in no small measure, to the time taken by Helen Cairns to fully assess and understand her client’s requirements. I have received candidates from a wide geographic area (including from abroad), all of whom had been thoroughly checked for mobility. It is a comfort to know that you can rely on such details having been addressed prior to interview.

Candidates that attended interviews, aside from being a good match, are well-presented and briefed about the company and the role. I believe that this is a clear indication of the “extra mile” that LSA goes to, for each and every position that they take on to recruit.

I would not hesitate in recommending their services to other employers desirous of a supplier that delivers high quality, reliability and value.

Someone once told me that an ideal business partner is someone who shares in the vision & common goal, while being reliable, flexible and willing to help solve any problems you are facing. I would say that Helen Cairns defines the ideal recruitment business partner. She is enthusiastic, has an open communication style that is honest, takes the time to really understand the needs of the business and is always full of ideas of how best to resolve our recruitment needs. The quality of candidates Helen provided was superb, as she would not only take time to understand what the business was looking for, but she would also understand the candidates needs & aspirations to make a good match between the two. I would highly recommend Helen as recruitment business partner and would not hesitate calling on her again!
