“R3’s approach to retail recruitment is refreshing. As an ex-recruitment consultant, it’s nice to see an honest and no nonsense approach to recruitment. They listen to the ideas and the brief I set out and very much source proactively as well as using their existing candidate database to successfully fill my vacancies. They appreciate the complexities that can occur within a large organisation and work flexibly around this to deliver quality candidates which make both parties happy. I feel that they have delivered on their original proposition of being an extension of the recruitment team here at New Look.”
Helal Miah, Recruitment Officer – New Look
“We have been working with R3 for the last 12 months and the service we have received has been excellent. Their professional but friendly approach has filled me with confidence that they can be trusted to deliver a first-class service. More importantly, they have kept my company advised at each step of the recruitment process rather than us having to chase them. Their vast knowledge of the retail recruitment market, together with their support and guidance, has been second-to-none. Thank you to all at R3’s Birmingham office.”
Personnel Manager – Holland & Barrett
“We have worked with R3 as a partner, to recruit a number of senior positions over the last two years. I have been continually impressed with the quality of candidates and the quality of customer service I have received. It’s great to work with a business who treat both clients and candidates with respect and honesty and who deliver what they promise. I would recommend R3 to any business who wishes to recruit great talent in a professional and fun manner.”
Allison Green – Roadchef
“We have now worked with R3 for approximately 2 years, and the relationship has developed over this time into a real partnership. Their focus and energy to deliver great people to our business is outstanding, and feedback from candidates as to how they have been treated through the recruitment process is excellent. The communication aspect of any relationship is always going to be key, and R3 ensures that all parties are kept informed right through to the end of the process. R3 is like a continuation of our Resourcing team, which to us is very important, as they represent our brand to many people on a daily basis. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to other employers looking to use the services of a recruitment agency.”

“Gemma demonstrates real energy and drive to all she does, she takes time to understand her clients needs and responds accordingly. She will regularly communicate with weekly updates, so as the client I am fully aware of what activity is taking place. I find Gemma to be very personable and professional at all times and is reliable and open to feedback in order to improve results.”
Lucy Day, Resourcing Partner – Pizza Hut
“When I initially contacted Jodie she was very enthusiastic about the roles and was confident she would be able to source us some candidates. Within only a few hours she was sending CV’s to us with some strong candidates. We took almost all through first stage and the 2 we have offered to are fantastic candidates with a real passion for our brand and the role.
The Recruiting Manager has been a bit difficult changing the recruitment process at the last minute but Jodie has dealt with it all wonderfully helping me along the way. She is on the ball with everything providing me with information even before I have requested it and keeping the process moving. I have every confidence that she will be able to source further candidates in both temporary and permanent positions for us in the future.
The Recruiting Manager has been very pleased with everything Jodie has done and has already requested that any further roles (temporary and permanent) go directly to her.”
