I wanted to thank you for all your help with my job search and for keeping me updated along the way. The way you guys work is a really refreshing approach compared to most recruitment agencies and was much appreciated.

You guys were the first I thought of, because honestly based on my experience, you are by far the most professional and reliable recruiter I've dealt with.

Stopgap is definitely one of the best recruitment agencies I have come across, so I hope that we can work together again

Having worked with a number of recruitment agencies over the years from both a hiring and being hired point of view, my recent experience of Stopgap has been by far one of the most professional.

Out of all the recruitment agencies I’ve worked with I’ve had the most support from Stopgap - you've been the best and most trustworthy. 

I have always been grateful for the support Stopgap has given me and out of all the agencies I've dealt with over the past year, I honestly have to say you guys have been the best. 

Stopgap have been fantastic to work with and I'll certainly recommend you guys to any of my friends who are job hunting.

You’ve been consistently the best agency from a candidate point of view that I’ve ever used. 

With some recruitment agencies I've felt that I was simply a unit that they were trying to place, nothing more than a faceless plug to fill a hole. However, working with Stopgap has been like a breath of fresh air. They are open, honest and have really taken the time to get to know me as a candidate.
I appreciate all your help and really have no words to describe how highly I think of your agency

Compared to other recruiters, Stopgap has been by far my very best experience. You're all fantastic at what you do, and I really can't thank you enough!

Many thanks again you guys are really brilliant. 

I was touched to receive the box of chocolates and the card from you today. Thank you very much! It's very thoughtful of you. Also, I want to say Thank You for all your help and assistance with my employment. I wouldn't be where I am now without you. You're doing an amazing job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone who's hunting for a job. 


Once again, a big Thank You! And I hope we can stay in touch. 

I also want to thank you and everyone at Stopgap! You are truly the best recruitment agency! If I start looking for a new role, you’ll be the first to know.


I really loved working with you! Thanks you so much for taking the time to meet me. 


Let’s keep in touch.

I really enjoyed Christine's help and advice when I wanted to make an important career change. From the basics of getting my CV "just right" for the industry I was looking at and always respecting my job wishes when roles became available, to giving specific advice on how to prepare for an interview and thoroughly advocating me to the company of my choice. Christine offers the full service you need when you are looking for a new opportunity. It's been a pleasure working with her and I am thrilled to say I have now found my dream job!

I really appreciate all of the work you have done for me and can't believe what fantastic service I've received from your team members. Thanks again for all of your hard work and I'd definitely recommend Stopgap to all in the future.

I’m pleasantly surprised about the positive approach, the ‘Stopgap way’, professionalism and dedication of the Stopgap team. A friend recommended the Stopgap website and I can see what makes you stand out among all other recruitment agencies. I truly appreciate your advice, as well willingness and desire to try and match my aspirations.

I want to thank you for your help and support, I worked with a number of recruiters during this job hunt and have to say that you and the team at Stopgap were by far the best and most friendly to work with. I'll definitely think of you guys when looking for my next adventure. 

Thank you very much for all of your help in my search. I have been really impressed with the calibre of agencies and considerate approach you and your team have offered. I will certainly be in touch with you again when I next look for a role and I will recommend you to any of my friends and colleagues who are looking.

You were fantastic to work with so thank you so much, I'll definitely be in touch if and when I'm looking again. I'd also happily recommend you to anyone I know who is looking.

I just wanted to thank you for your help during my job search it's been an absolute pleasure to deal with Stopgap and I'll keep you posted in the future.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you!...I'm over the moon with the offer and can't wait to start at BA. I've also never come across a recruiter who seems to genuinely care so thank you I really appreciate everything you've done!

It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for being your brilliant self. I must let you know that I have had the quickest response in my job search from you and Stopgap.  As an event specialist, a marketing agency would not have been my first point of call but I am so glad I got in touch

Thanks so much for all your help. Delighted with the outcome. Once again it has been a pleasure working with the Stopgap team.

Stopgap is definitely doing things differently & am well impressed. You guys are fabulous 

Can I just say what a delightful, clever and informed professional you are! I know how busy you all are but to take time out to help someone going through a tough time is really fantastic, it really is!...Thank you very much as you've given me a little faith back in the industry and myself.

I just wanted to express my complete and utter thanks and appreciation for everything that you all and the Stopgap team did for me in helping me find a position.  I could not have dreamed for a better experience!  

You are amazing !!!! An amazing person who kept her word when it usually
only seems to be a figure of speech in today’s world and you're an amazing
professional for the manner in which you followed up with me.

Thank you very much. I'm so pleased you really did an amazing job! Best recruitment agency staff I've ever worked with.

Thank you also for being so helpful over the last few weeks with finding work. If I'm honest a lot of recruiters haven't been good and you have put my faith back in that there are good one's out there. You didn't push anything on me and made me feel like it was my decision, so thanks. If anyone needs a recruiter I will be recommending you for sure!

You have shown a desire to try and match my aspirations with those of a company and not just seen me as a commodity with a bunch of skills - thank you.

I really appreciated the in-depth interview and came away highly convinced that in Stopgap I have found one of the most professional (and human!) recruitment consultancies in London.

You are the only ones who ALWAYS send feedback or a reply, even when one is unsuccessful.

Thanks and well done for achieving the impossible, you’ve restored my faith in the recruitment industry, mankind and life in general!

All the team members I have dealt with at Stopgap have been on the ball and lovely! Your advice, encouragement and knowledge in the field has been crucial and I can't thank you enough!

Thank you for taking the time to understand what type of role I am interested in. You were head and shoulders above the large global recruiters I have met with.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful box of chocolates, it was a complete surprise and a delight! to both myself and the Bulletproof team too :)


But more importantly thank you for your support through my job-hunt journey, I really felt you listened to what I was looking for/ gave me job opportunities that suited my experience too (didn't just send anything across).


You also really lifted me up when I didn't get a job offer, but that's ok as it's about what's right for them and you and those weren't meant to be. 

Just a quick one to say thanks so much for the bottle of Champagne which I’ve just received.

It was a wonderful surprise and very generous.

I've been on Stopgap's books for 20 plus years and compared to others they are certainly more candidate sensitive and supportive.

Having used various other agencies in the past, I believe that Stopgap is unique and I am very impressed by the services offered to me as a candidate. Stopgap is extremely professional, helpful and supportive. The team is very organised and punctual. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your services to others.

I have really enjoyed working with you with regards to searching for a new role and would have to say that the Stopgap team are a standout above the other agencies, thank you. 

Thank you so much for your help and advice in my job search. Stopgap has by far been my favourite and most trusted agency. It's been so great having the support from everyone in the Stopgap team. 

Whenever I talk with marketing/creative people looking for work I always recommend they check Stopgap out. You gave me the best, most constructive feedback on my CV, which made a lasting impression and stood out compared to other recruitment agencies! 

Just wanted to say thank you to you all for your support and efficiency. Stopgap provided a great service and I will strongly recommend you all to any future candidates.

I’m pleasantly surprised about the positive approach, the ‘Stopgap way’, professionalism and dedication of the Stopgap team. I can see what makes you stand out among all other recruitment agencies and I truly appreciate your advice, as well as your willingness and desire to try and match my aspirations.

Just a quick note to thank you ever so much for the yummy chocolates you sent over – a very pleasant, unexpected surprise! My first week has gone really well, everyone here is extremely friendly and welcoming and the role seems like a great fit for me. Thanks for everything

Just want to send you my sincerest thanks for everything you've done to help me, its been a pleasure to work with you and I owe you so much. 

You ladies are truly an amazing team! I thank you for your amazing service, professionalism and friendliness.  You will definitely be first on my list to pass on details to friends and colleagues that might be interested in a change of career. I've already suggested my close friend to give you a call.

I just wanted to reiterate how grateful I am to you for your help when I first arrived in London. The Transport Museum was a family for me while in the UK and with a lot changing in my personal life during my time in London that job kept my safe and happy and gave me the stability I desperately needed to make sure I stayed here. I owe you a lot and I need you to understand the impact the amazing work you do and probably think nothing of can actually have on those of us you help to find employment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in me and putting my name forward all those years ago. You are a superstar.

I'd like to say thank you for all your help, you ladies really have been the BEST recruitment people I have ever worked with.

Thank you all for the efforts that you all put into finding a role that suited me. You were all so supportive and helpful. I must say that Stopgap, as a whole, has been leaps and bounds ahead of most of the other recruitment agencies that I worked with, so well done you! 

I wanted to take the opportunity to express my deepest appreciations for the assistance you provided in my recent search for work. Although my new position was found through a direct approach, your feedback and friendly demeanour truly was a breath of fresh air in a time when recruiter after recruiter was negative, unhelpful, and often rude. I cannot express my thanks enough for your constructive feedback, and for being such a delightful and positive individual - something that not only kept my determination strong, but also my spirits high. Should I be in a capacity to hire in future, I will definitely seek out your personal assistance.

Thank you very much. I'm so pleased you really did an amazing job! Best recruitment agency staff I've ever worked with.

I'm so grateful to you and the team there for all your support over the last few months. You've been absolutely fantastic. You really do blow the competition out of the water.

I can't say enough about Stopgap. You are all superb. A stand out company, quality in everything you do. Completely impressed.
It is very refreshing to find a recruitment agency that places such a high emphasis on working collaboratively with those who register with them and who care about their career development.

It was the most professional and productive meeting I have had with a recruitment agency to date, which was very refreshing and encouraging.

I've been in touch with several recruiters but you were clearly the most dedicated and supportive.
You guys have shown me a far superior recruitment service to any other agency I've liaised with in the UK.
I am delighted to be able to tell you how much Stopgap's professionalism sets you apart from the pack!
