Candidates suit culture.

I have used Potensis as my primary recruitment method for the last 3 years because of their clear understanding of our business need, the large number of good quality candidates registered on their database and there honest straightforward approach that manages everybody’s expectations.

They allocate candidates that suit your culture and management style and don’t just present you with any CV in the hope that something sticks.

I would recommend Potensis to anybody.

Professional, accurate and refreshingly honest.

I have worked with Potensis over the past number of years during which I have found their approach to both permanent and temporary recruitment to be professional, accurate and refreshingly honest.

I appreciated their attention to detail and market knowledge especially with the thoroughness of their vetting process.

This approach ensures that candidates accurately reflect my needs, that of my department and the two companies I have worked for during my dealings with them.

High calibre candidates.

I first dealt with Potensis in 2007 when they recruited me via a headhunt into Crest Nicholson as Development Director.

I have subsequently used their services both at Crest Nicholson and at Countryside on both a retained and standard contingent introductions and found them to be highly professional and successful in identifying high calibre candidates.

They have an in-depth understanding of the housebuilding sector and I would recommend them to any business looking to recruit within the housebuilding industry.

Connecting people with organisations.

Determined to succeed.

I first met Lauren Chandler in 2015 whilst I was Construction Director for Nuliving. We had many organisations who carried out recruitment operations for us and obviously some of those we had a long standing working relationship with.

Lauren was persistent in pursuing opportunities with us and never gave up trying to get an opening with us. I have to say I personally admired her doggedness and determination to succeed and her diligence paid off with us finally giving her an opportunity to recruit for us. Lauren always listened to our requirements and needs, and worked extremely hard to fulfil the roles we were looking to fill. She very quickly met with success and made several permanent placements for us.

I have always found Lauren to be polite, courteous, tentative and diligent but above all determined to succeed. I would have no hesitation in working with Lauren again, or indeed recommending her to similar organisations, she is someone that tries to go the extra mile.
