VANRATH, and namely Daniel Morgan acting as Interim Accountancy & Finance Specialist, deserve nothing short of a 5-star review. As someone who recently settled in the United Kingdom, I was a little worried that it would be difficult to acclimate to this new job environment and transition my skills and experience; however, I discovered VANRATH early on in my job search and instantaneously found an offering on their website that perfectly aligned with my skills/job aspirations. I applied, of course, and less than 12 hours later, Dan had initiated contact -- and the rest was history. He reached out for initial discussion regarding the position, liaised with the employer/vouched for me, set up the interview, gave me pointers, followed-up on the interview, etc. Dan basically went above and beyond to ensure an excellent match between an employer and potential employee came to fruition. Always touched base, was always available to chat/answer questions on the phone, always easy to talk to. And in combination with his help and expertise, I succeeded in the interview, secured the position, and finished signing the contract earlier today. Of course, it ultimately comes down to the individual -- but Dan professionally executed the match between myself and my new employer and could not have made it easier for us to coincide and enter an agreement. Without a doubt, I would recommend Dan for anyone in the Accountancy and Finance sector looking for new employment.
Neil was super helpful in putting me forward for a number of roles. I was a bit lost at where I wanted the next steps if my career to take, but Neil was able to help me move up into a Senior position in a new company. He was also very helpful and honest with me in terms of the salary negotiations. I think they found a good fit for me in my new company and I am really looking forward to starting.
I have nothing but praise for Vanrath and especially Rachel Boyle who has helped me find my dream job. Rachel sent across a number of positions that would have all been a good fit for me but once I had decided on a specific company she was on hand to facilitate everything that I needed throughout the entire interview and negotiation process. Rachel was completely transparent throughout all stages of the application process and relayed feedback as soon as it was made available to her which was something that I was very appreciative of. Rachel is a credit to your company!
I highly recommend working with Shannon. She helped me find a suitable position just in time for finishing university. Every stage of the application process was stress free, quick and well communicated. Everything was so well explained and she made me feel very confident and prepared for my interview. Thank you so much Shannon! Couldn't recommend enough.
