Our greatest chance of finding you the right role is to get to know you personally. The best way to do this is to meet you as everybody is unique and what you are looking for is personal to you. We believe that by taking this time we will understand your skills and requirements from the off which really does help us ensure we are recommending the right options for you.
The registration process includes completing some standard forms, a couple of tests and an interview. The forms and tests don’t take very long, the main part of the process is the interview, this is where we establish the key information about you and what you are looking for in a role and your career.
We recruit for most positions based in an office such as: HR, Marketing, Accounts, Operations, Facilities, Reception, Sales, Customer Services, and so on. If in doubt please do call us and we can discuss whether we are the right consultancy for you.
Interviews can be a daunting and scary process for even the most confident of person. Something Peach has done since day one is to provide an interview brief and debrief. Our consultants have built long standing and strong relationships with many of our clients and in fact some of our clients class us as an extension of their HR Team. In order to make sure you feel at your most confident when going on interview, your Peach Consultant will go through the job with you thoroughly to ensure you understand what is required, they run through company information and interview format, including tips & techniques in order for you to get the best out of the interview.
In order to manage the interview process thoroughly and successfully, we make sure you call us immediately after your interview to tell us your thoughts and level of interest. The information you give us at this stage could be crucial in the decision making process.
No problem at all – although many applicants only register with us, we are more than happy for you to keep your options open. All we ask is that you keep us in the picture about other job applications – that way we avoid any chances of doubling up which can be embarrassing and look unprofessional.
We will manage the process from there. Gaining feedback, learning from our clients your positives and then hopefully, all being well, arranging the next step in the process for you.
We attract our candidates through recommendations from both clients and candidates. We do at times have to advertise for a specific type of skill and it is at this point we use a national database and various job boards to attract a specific candidate for your particular need. In this instance we still will meet and interview the candidate on your behalf before you meet them.
We take pride in our company and in our roles as consultants. As we are an independent recruiter, our reputation is absolutely key and we have to work that little bit harder to impress. This means, we treat our clients and candidates alike, without one we wouldn’t have the other. We work as an extension of your HR team, we short list the applicants, listen to your needs and only send you the applicant(s) that fit your criteria. We do not want to waste your time with applicants sent on a ‘hope they stick’ attitude, and will only send you applicants we truly believe fit your role, team, company, ethics and long term goals of the business. With a team of consultants that have all worked for Peach for many years, we can also guarantee your account manager will work with you from day one and will manage your account with consistency and commitment throughout.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Peach for over 20 years. As a candidate they placed me in my first HR job straight out of university, and numerous jobs since then. They have been with me for my whole career encouraging and supporting me. Due to their efficiency and professionalism I became their client, and Peach filled many of my temporary and permanent vacancies, aligning competent candidates for the specific skills required in the roles. Amanda and her team are wonderful and I never hesitate to picking up the phone to them.” – Sim G, Bedfont“
“I’ve been using Peach now for nearly 20 years as an employer and an employee and they’ve always been great, therefore when I was made redundant in October 2016 I didn’t bother going anywhere else. Two weeks and 1 interview later, I started as an administrator at a construction company, and now I’m a permanent member of the team. What I didn’t realise was that I’d be on site from time to time wearing the full kit, not the most glamourous outfit I’ve ever put on, but on the plus side, it’s a great job which I’m loving!” – Jo P, Heathrow“

“I have now been working for Peach for a few months and I can’t thank them enough. When I first joined, they really took the time in getting to know me in order to find the roles that would best suit me. I truly feel like Peach is a company that value their relationship with candidates, taking the time to ensure that they are happy in any new working environment. I’d particularly like to thank Hannah for finding me a role that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. If you are searching for a recruitment agency then look no further than the fabulous team at Peach!” – Daniel P, Hanwell“

“I’ve been with Peach for about 6 months and they have been fantastic. I know every member of the team and every single one has been extremely helpful. In particular I want to say a massive thank you to Hannah and Amanda who always ready to listen. They read my CV and after an in-depth discussion they were able to place me in a job that was right for me. Their clients have the same outlook and treat us agency workers in the same regard as permanent members of staff and I have really enjoyed all the assignments I have had through Peach. I would, without a shadow of a doubt, recommend Peach Personnel to anyone and despite taking on temporary roles, there is no uncertainty once a contract finishes that I will be on my own, as they are always at the end of the phone and ready to support.” – Bairave, Harrow“
“I have been using Peach for the last 3 years and I don’t think I will ever use another. It’s not just a recruitment agency, every single member of staff has made me feel welcomed, have been supportive, helpful and treated me like an individual, a human being and not just another number. They have found me work and I am in a permanent position now thanks to them. They checked in with me every week while I was temping but they are not pushy and they always go the extra mile, it’s like being part of an extended family. I recommend them to everyone and will continue to do so and should I ever be in a position where I’m looking for work again I won’t hesitate to call on them. Thank you to all the lovely staff at Peach, past and present!” – Emily S, Isleworth“

“Just want to say thank you for your help in finding my job. I had signed up with a few agencies but yours had the most personal service. Other agencies would just ask generic competency based questions in their preparation interviews and I felt like another number passing through. The questions you asked were similar to the actual ones asked in this interview and as we had gone over them I was prepared to give a calm and measured response. I really want to express my gratitude and will have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone looking for a new opportunity!” – Veerinder B, Iver“

I felt my being there really mattered and I left feeling extremely grateful and happy with the whole experience. The professionalism and the personal touch were totally immense and I will definitely remember the kindness and your demeanour with very fond memories. Thank you once again” – R Iqbal – Slough“

For example, I originally applied for a role that I thought I was well suited for but Peach took the time to talk through the role and found me a better job.The staff are very helpful and always check to see if you are ok when at work. I would definitely recommend them!” – Jay, Ealing“
