“Excellent and Helpful Service”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by HeatherChloe (1 review written)

I worked with 1PGR shortly after completing my university degree, and I have to say that the staff over at 1PGR were excellent. Not only did they reassure me at a time that I needed it most but their consultants kept regular contact with me, each contacting me as soon as a position was available. They were each very personable with me and I felt completely at ease with their knowledge of the industry and advice. After just two interviews with different companies 1PGR secured me a position… Read Full Review

“Could not have done it without 1PGR! ”

Written on: 03/10/2014 by GeorginaM (1 review written)

I would like to say a huge massive thank you to 1PGR who have succeeded in placing me into a dream job! After 8 weeks of persuing leads, answering my endless questions and supporting me via email and phone 24/7, I have finally reached the end goal of obtaining a job! I am apparently not allowed to mention names here, but I am sure those who know what they did know that I am grateful. During my process of interviewing, I was told by many people that this industry (recruitment) was a harsh… Read Full Review

“Great service”

Written on: 25/09/2014 by 337Miranda (1 review written)

I came across 1PGR online, and after 'dropping' my CV on their site, I received a call the next day from one of the 1PGR consultants. The consultant was very professional and personable, and invited me to attend an assessment day with 1PGR. The assessment day was challenging yet enjoyable, with a professional yet friendly atmosphere where you could showcase your competencies through a variety of exercises. Following the assessment day, the consultants took into account the type of role I was… Read Full Review

“Reliable!”

Written on: 22/07/2014

Long story short, I arrived at 1st place shortly after finishing university, a month to be precise and received a job offer within two weeks. My recruitment consultant was efficient and effective in getting me a quick interview with a fantastic employer with promising prospects. The initial assessment centre by 1st place was both challenging and stimulating, proving to be beneficial as I picked up some useful tips to take to my job interview. I would recommend 1st place to any graduate seeking… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2014 by Lucylu90 (1 review written)

I came across 1st place online when applying for a job a few weeks ago. After a few hours the company rang me and invited me to their assessment centre. They wasted no time with me and kept me informed every step of the way. The team were brilliant and really friendly. I've heard bad reviews from other graduate centres so I had no idea what to expect. The company emailed me with plenty of advice for the day and it was a fun, exciting and brilliant opportunity to meet new people. I was… Read Full Review

“Great opportunities ”

Written on: 25/06/2014 by XavierLeonard (1 review written)

I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived at 1st Place having had a bad experience with the last graduate training scheme I attended but I'm happy I gave it a go. The different stages are fun and a great way to know your skills and meet other people. At the end it led to an interview the day after completing the 1st Graduate day. I've now been hired by the company that I met through 1st Place Graduate. I start on monday doing something I love so thank you! I would definitely recommend… Read Full Review

I thoroughly enjoyed the group interview and the assessment day in general. I met 2 clients there which was great. I had a large amount of interviews with fab companies which stemmed from First Place and got a fantastic job offer which I eagerly accepted and I start my new job in July! All of the staff were extremely friendly and helped as much as they could whenever they could. Very happy and couldn't thank First Place more… Read Full Review

“2 Second Interviews”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by WilliamAbb (1 review written)

I attended an Assessment Day with 1st Place Recruitment a few days ago and met some fantastic people and made some useful contacts. The day was incredibly well run, challenging, fun and insightful. All of the 1st Place Recruitment team were very professional and incredibly attentive; always asking and answering questions and providing useful information. The fact that I was successful at the Assessment Day has consequently resulted in 2 further second stage interviews so far with some very… Read Full Review

When I passed the assessment conducted by 1st Place I felt like I would find a new job in no time. The team was ever so attentive and would provide me with new job positions, arrange the interviews and brief me beforehand. I felt confident to go to the each interview and would get a feedback form 1st Place right after it so I would keep my expectations in place. Such a professional and attentive team, they found me a position with the exact kind of environment and challenge I was looking… Read Full Review

“Excellent Career Opportunities Available”

Written on: 26/02/2014 by McKenziekx364 (1 review written)

Before attending 1st Place I was very skeptical about graduate recruitment agencies. From start to finish they demonstrated how misguided my concerns were. After passing their professionally run assessment day, I was instantly presented with a number of job opportunities. After a week of intensive interviews, which were supplemented with continuous guidance from the first place team, I managed to secure a dream job. I am now in my second month in this new position, and I couldn't be… Read Full Review

“Hands-on, friendly, dedicated and prompt service!”

Written on: 26/02/2014 by RyanForReal (1 review written)

1st Place Recruitment were an absolute pleasure to work with. They listened to what I wanted and did not encourage me to go for roles that I was half-heartedly enthusiastic about. It felt like I was forming a partnership with them in securing a role and of all the recruiters I was working with at the same time- they were the most hands-on, friendly and professional of all. I would recommend them time and time again and am very grateful for all of their help, coaching, advice and encouragement… Read Full Review

“1st Place, Really Helpful Company!”

1st Place helped me get the perfect role within the week of first meeting them. They talked me through the whole process, made me feel comfortable and well informed and suggested roles to me that I hadn’t even considered that turned out to be exactly right! They ran through everything with me before I interviewed, set me up interviews with three great companies and guided me through from first meeting to last to choose the right role, which offers everything I was looking for. I cannot… Read Full Review

“Desperate recruitment consultants ”

Written on: 12/11/2013 by 10373 (1 review written)

I had not directly applied to any of this recruitment agencies jobs as I have found them IRRITATING and unprofessional. When they repeatedly told me to get in contact with them I had told them I am not looking for a job! In which a pleasant girl named Jess told me to "stop applying for our jobs then"... Get organised. Get better consultants. Maybe decrease their work load because they have no idea what is going on All they see you as is a bit of commission AVOID like a plague… Read Full Review

Well-organised and professional, 1st Place is the perfect recruitment expert for the employer and potential employee.

Not only would a graduate candidate benefit from their services, but anyone who wants… Read Full Review

“Excellent, efficient, friendly recruitment firm.”

Written on: 10/10/2013 by ash89 (1 review written)

I attended the assessment day with 1stPGR and this was a much longer process than I expected. I was one of ten from over thirty who was taken through from this process. This should not out you off however. I found it reassuring that they thoroughly screen who they represent. Once you're through this assessment they really do work very hard for you, and put everything in to finding you a job. I had an interview the day after my assessment day, and from that point three or four interviews a… Read Full Review

Good fun day at the assessment centre where I learnt a lot through the useful interview prep provided; gave me a real condfidence boost when reaching my first interview.
