Woking with Luke to find my new job has been a pleasure. I received a phone call from him to discuss my job preferences (salary, location, other benefits, etc.) and I can honestly say he listened to what I was looking for because 2 days later he found me the perfect job that ticked all the boxes. Luke is clearly very good at his job, he was kind enough to send details to prep for the interview. He also checked in and asked if I needed any further assistance or advice prior to the interview and start date.Thank you, Luke. I will definitely recommend your services. Very professional throughout the whole process but also very friendly and approachable.

Couldn't recommend Ellis Mason enough, Luke was very helpful all throughout the interview process and even after I had secured the role. Great agency and an equally great experience.

Emma was so friendly, helpful, professional and so much more. Always checking in and giving feedback and ensuring she relayed everything in real time. Didn't have to chase for answer and even with no update still kept in contact. Gave honest feedback and thoughts and was also on the same wave length with me. Would definitely recommend.

Worked for this agency for a little while, They were very professional and always on hand to help with any issues. Both Luke and Emma were very warm and welcoming for new people to the agency.Payslips were emailed 3 days before payday, which gave time to sort out problems. I would definitely work for them again.

I've told many of my friends about Ellis Mason and if I ever need to change jobs in the future, I know where to look :)

To be brief: Emma was great and offered far more than I anticipated. Super friendly and informal in the best kind of way. Ellis Mason had me placed in a job that I wanted (with a great company) within a week or so pretty much. What more can you ask for?

After losing my job in February due to Covid-19, I applied for many jobs and didn’t get any response. I decided to apply here to see if they could help me. They got back to me instantly eggar to help. They managed to get me an interview for the following Tuesday for one of my dream jobs, which I got an offer the next day to join that company. Ellis Mason have helped me get a job within a week of applying & have helped me change my life around. Thanks guys!

Fantastic recruitment agency. I haven't use a job agency before so I was apprehensive at ferst. Luke who helped me was friendly and always keep me up-to-date.

I was out of work due to the pandemic and i applied for a job and got a reply the next morning from Emma and then sorted out a quick interview to speak about the job etc. she was nothing but pleasant the whole time and very helpful helping me with prep for the main interview and has still been in touch recently hoping the job is going well and also sent a good luck card when I started the job which she didn't have to but was a very nice gesture I've not had anywhere near the same kindness and help from other agencies so I would highly recommend Ellis mason to anyone.
Victor B.
19:35 05 Mar 21
Absolutely outstanding service. I was looking for a new position for a couple of weeks with no luck.After getting in touch with Ellis Mason, I scheduled an interview with Luke on the next morning, who promptly set me up and prepared me for an interview for the role I was interessed in.It didn't take more than a few hours until I actually get a job offer, couldn't be more thankful to both Luke and Ellis Mason, I absolutely recommend it.
Lauren M.
08:59 26 Feb 21
Both Luke and Emma are fantastic at what they do. I have found them both to be very responsive and answer any questions I’ve had in as much detail as possible. I approached Ellis Mason when I was unhappy in my old and within days Luke had found me a brilliant opportunity. Changing jobs can be a stressful and daunting time but Luke was always available to answer any questions I had. Really couldn’t recommend them enough!
James D.
19:24 20 Feb 21
Amazing experience with this recruiter. They found me through their resourcing skills, and got me into my dream job. The team have been following up with me and my employers through the whole process. 10 out of 10
Anders T.
09:23 20 Feb 21
I was made redundant at the end of last year due to the pandemic, and like many others were applying to lots of companies, often receiving no response, so it was a great boost to receive an email from Luke and Ellis Mason, offering to chat about a job he thought I might be suited for (a job I had actually already been looking at, but hadn’t applied for yet). Luke was friendly and professional throughout, first having a zoom chat about the role, and then arranging the interview with the hiring manager, responding very quickly to emails and questions and preparing me for the interview in the best way possible, even following up once I had my first day at the new job. He made a process that’s normally stressful very pleasant.I can definitely recommend contacting Ellis Mason, and if you receive an email from them about a job opportunity, don’t discard it as they are a serious business, and in my case it led to a great new job I’m very happy with!

Emma has been the most attentive recruiter I've ever worked with. Her enthusiasm is contagious and she has been keeping in touch and providing frequent updates since the beginning of the process. I even received a Good luck card from her the weekend before I started the job! I would 100% recommend Ellis Mason.

09:31 05 Feb 21
I was made redundant due to Covid back in February and since then I signed up to many recruitment agencies and applied to many jobs. Not even one of them replied or called, until I receive a lovely email from Emma regarding a role I applied for. Funny enough the role I applied was not suitable for my experience but Emma called and we spoke about another role which would suit me better. I had a quick chat with Emma and within 3 days I received a video interview and was offered a job. Emma went above and beyond to get this role for me. I received a great service from Emma and now started in my new role she still contact me to see how I am doing. A fantastic company.

Like so many people this year, I was made redundant. I contacted my previous go to agencies and never really heard from them and if I did, it was for a job role I had stated I was not interested in.Ellis Mason are amazing! And I cannot stress that enough! I always felt that Emma cared about me as a person, and took my opinions on board when looking for roles. Every potential role that she suggested to me was something I had never thought of perusing before, but all of them made me very excited about returning to work.Ellis Mason adapted wonderfully to the COVID situation, and kept me in the loop always. When things were at their worst in lockdown, getting a call to let me know I wasn't forgotten made me really feel hopeful.Thanks to Emma I am now in a role that I'm excited about, and it's lovely to enjoy working again! She's worked so hard and I honestly don't have enough room to write how lovely she has been.From now on Ellis Mason will be first on my list, if ever I need to find work.

After being made redundant thanks to Covid and being stuck as all jobs in travel were no longer existing I contacted many recruitment agents. Most were honestly useless; I had to chase them, they weren’t responsive, and I had to explain my situation repeatedly to the same person.When I spoke with Emma it was a revelation! There were good recruitment agents out there! She was friendly, personable, and really seemed to care. I spoke to her one week and had a job offer the next...Thank you Emma and Ellis Mason!

Unbelievable company.Normally I’m wary of recruitment companies as they tend to go off on a tangent from the job you were interested in.However, Ellis Masons don’t waste your time and focus on the role you were interested in. The environment is friendly and welcoming. The staff make you feel like you’ve known them for years.The person who helped me find my current job is Emma, who is so nice and always cheerful.She was checking up on me throughout the recruitment process and sounded genuinely interested in how I was finding it.On my first day at the job I got through this company, Emma even sent a good luck card.

They are an amazing Company, they are every honest people, they listen and take in everything you tell them, they also take the information you give them about yourself and what your looking for and turn it into productive feedback to you allowing you to focus on key area's on yourself and what you should be focusing your time on.I was a unemployed young Adult with no experience in the work place what so ever, no agency that i went to before was willing to guide me in the right direction or even help me find a job. Then i came across Ellis Mason I told them my situation and what i was looking for, they gave me productive feedback on what I needed to change and what i needed to improve.I felt that they was heavily invested into getting me the correct job and helping me improve myself as a person. not long after they got me a interview with a company that I'm now working for and enjoying every minute of it. I highly recommend this company to anyone no matter what situation your in i believe that they would get you to the place need to be.

It's evident that they keep a great relationship with their clients that trust them to bring fitting candidates, so I felt pretty confident going to an interview knowing that Emma and Luke were confident too.
