Brand Ambassador – November 2018

Have you ever wanted to get an inside look into the recruitment process? We wanted to hear from one of our candidates how they felt throughout the recruitment process and so we reached out and asked Yvette to give us an overview of what it was like to work with Quest Recruitment when looking for a new role.

Yvette studied a Joint Honours BA Finance and Economics at the National University of Ireland Maynooth. Having used Quest previously to find her first role in Financial Services, Yvette once again utilized our service to find her current role, one which provides challenges and the opportunity to grow.

We asked Yvette a series of 8 questions to learn more about her experience with Quest.

  1. How did you hear of Quest Recruitment?

I had previously been placed at my first job in financial services by Quest. I was recommended the agency by a friend.

  1. What is your background?

My background is finance. I studied finance and economics and once I finished college I started working in financial services, where Quest placed me in first role.

  1. How did you find the recruitment process?

In my first placement via Quest, I didn’t know what to expect as this was my first experience dealing with a recruitment agency. But Quest ensured I was well prepared for the interview process, meeting me several times before and after. I had a similar if not better experience when placed in my current role; everything was very clear in terms of the role and the interview process. Quest also made sure to follow up with me regularly after I started which I was really impressed with.

  1. How did you interact with your consultant?

Louise and I had a great working relationship right from the start and I would work with her again should anything change in the future.

  1. Do you enjoy your new role?

I really enjoy my role, it was a new challenge for me and I am really glad Quest approached me.

  1. Would you recommend Quest Recruitment to a family member or friend?

Yes, I would definitely recommend Quest.

  1. Did this experience meet your expectations for enlisting the services of a recruitment company?

My most recent experience with Quest exceeded my expectations in general of a recruitment company. I have worked with other companies in between my experiences with Quest and these experiences were also fine however I was able to build a relationship with Quest and they have always been very easy to work with.

  1. What was the most memorable moment during your experience with us?

Probably dealing with Louise for my current role, she is friendly and professional and the process was seamless from start to finish. The role itself involved new challenges but it also meant career progression and significantly furthering my own skills, Louise was at all times very open and honest and easy to deal with, I would definitely recommend the agency to a friend based on my experiences with Quest to date.

Here at Quest, we were delighted to hear Yvette’s feedback and we hope that it inspires your confidence in the Recruitment Process. If you are curious to see what we can do for you, please feel free to contact us on 01 676 0505 or
