May 2019 Tina has been working with us at NLTG on our staff recruitment since 2008, helping us to recruit many high-quality team members. Tina has taken the time to get to know all areas of our business, including our culture, which enables her to successfully match candidates, not just in terms of their ability, but also by whether the candidate and NLTG are a “good fit”.
Tina visits us at NLTG regularly to ensure she is up to date with our requirements and company developments and has spent time with all our management team over the years, creating good working relationships with them all. By meeting all candidates in advance of suggesting them to NLTG, she ensures that she can supply us with a detailed summary of anyone she puts forward for interview in addition to just a CV.
The personal touch is Tina’s strength. Whilst working with her, you always feel that you are her number one priority, hence why we have worked with her for so long.
Our management team now think of Tina as part of our team when it comes to recruitment. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tina Lacey Recruitment for staff recruitment solutions. Gareth Lindsay Managing Director North Lancs Training Group

Subject Matter Expert – Data Analysis/Big Data January 2019 IT Apprenticeships Training Provider I would recommend Tina to anyone looking to move roles or for a new challenge.

Tina offered exactly what I needed which was a personalised face to face process where Tina filled me with the confidence and knowledge I needed to succeed at interview. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Tina to anyone looking for a high quality recruitment agent.

Tina even took the time to meet me on the day of my interview to give me support and guidance. She has been in regular contact with me to ensure everything is going well and to offer further support when needed.

Head of Quality and Service Excellence – September 2018 – IT Training Provider This is my second recommendation for Tina but my first for Tina Lacey Recruitment.

The personal touch is what stands out, Tina goes the extra mile to not only ensure that the candidates are well prepared and able to present themselves confidently and professionally but she also coaches and motivates them too. How do I know this? Because recently I enlisted the support of Tina to help me find my next career move knowing what she is capable of, knowing her excellent track record and knowing her demonstrable pursuit of the perfect person for the perfect role.

The moment I spoke to Tina I was impressed by her personal interest and positivity in the initial call. At every stage I felt that Tina was genuinely committed to getting me the job I wanted and it felt like a team effort. I have never had such a positive experience from a recruitment consultant. Tina is in a league of her own and I felt I had made a friend in the recruitment process. No detail was too much trouble. She kept me informed and was always ready to deal efficiently and quickly with any question that I had throughout the process. As far as I am concerned meeting Tina was a God-send. I have already recommended her to my friends and will continue to do so.’
Project Management Programme Lead – National Training Provider – August 2018 Someone recommended Tina to me when I wasn’t sure what my next career move would be and I am happy I listened. Tina is not your average email recruiter, she listens and listens before she speaks, takes her time with you, meets you and follows up every step of the recruitment process. She matched me with an amazing employer with a job role and environment that I thought was maybe too demanding from my end. Match made, in the job now and ready to recommend her personalised professional service to anyone who is looking for a change.

I initially saw the post of a Customer Relations Coordinator advertised by Tina & called her for further information. From that initial contact Tina has gone and above & beyond . . . Explained the job role & discussed how I would be suited for the position & how I could use all my skills to make my application a success to get an interview. I called her on the Friday, completed relevant paperwork over the weekend. Tina gave me a lot of food for thought, as in research, interview techniques etc etc & coached me through the next step of the interview process (of which I certainly credit her for getting me), had the date for my interview on the Monday & an interview on the Wednesday & 2 hours later the job offer was mine ! The whole process has been speedy & professional but with Tina’s personality & friendly approach it has been enjoyable above all ! I cannot thank her enough for everything she has done . . . She has been a super star ! 😁

Skills for Life Tutor North West June 2017 Working with Tina has been an absolute pleasure from the very start. After sending Tina my details, we spoke over the phone and met the following day in a local coffee house. Tina instantly made me feel at ease and was confident that I would be suited to a particular role within a company she has worked with for a long time. Tina’s recruitment experience is evidenced in these situations as she is welcoming, and more than knowledgeable about the companies she recruits for. Luckily, Tina was right, and I was fortunate enough to be offered the position I applied for. Tina was very positive and supportive throughout the whole process, which was exactly what I needed when working with a recruiter for the first time. Thank you so much, Tina! Paige ***** 5 stars review on Google
IQA April 2017 “Tina is a pleasure to deal with. Her quick response to email enquiries or information means that we can both benefit from decisions from third parties. I first worked with Tina a year ago and the shared contacts we have means that we can support and advise colleagues and potential partners in driving the work based learning environment to achieve targets and objectives. I look forward to working with Tina much more in the future as the world of WBL changes and refocuses its agenda.” Janet Butler April 2017
Team Leading and Management Assessor Trainer April 2017 Tina is excellent at what she does.
She removes the ‘things’ that get in the way whilst you are on your journey to a new career. How do I know? She did exactly that for me in my recent search for a new job. From the first chat over a coffee to the final congratulatory ‘well done!’ Tina is supportive and attentive throughout. You could not wish for more. Her attention to detail and ability to make you feel special transfer a level of confidence which supports you throughout the whole recruitment process. Not only did Tina help me find a new job and but in her I also feel I have found a new friend. Thank you Tina your support has been amazing. Mark Brooks

Functional Skills Tutor Newton Aycliffe, North East – National Award Winning IT Training Provider September 2016 “After being told in May I was losing my job due to redundancy I started to apply for jobs. After several unsuccessful weeks applying for jobs with no reply, I did get a response.
This was Tina Lacey and she had responded to an application and explained what she did and how she may be able to help me look for a permanent contract. I then felt as if I had someone in my corner and if there was something she thought I was capable of, which she felt matched my qualifications, near to my home she would let me know. She gave me a broader spectrum of job ideas rather than just concentrating on a carbon copy of what I had done before. With her help I have now secured a new, challenging position in a training company, close to my home with a good salary. It took a few calls but her positive attitude kept me confident and she never gave up.
I have been happy to recommend her to colleagues, one of which has already found a new position with her help.”

Over the whole employment process, Tina was a fantastic person to work with and felt supported from the interview process, right through to gaining employment (in which she is still in contact now). Although Tina’s role is a recruiter for my new training provider, I felt that she was also a mentor and could go to her for the sometimes needed informal chat.
