What people say
‘I think you know you’re dealing with a professional company when your call is answered by the time the first ring has finished.
Really helpful in helping to find me a total change of career direction. I spoke to Natalie about two month ago and I explained that after many years I no longer wanted to be in sales or working in a stressful, target driven environment. A bit of a challenge with my heavily sales orientated CV and me being of a certain age!
Thanks largely to Natalie’s advice and guidance (I hadn’t had a job interview in over 10 years so was worried about how techniques and formalities may have changed), I had two great interviews for a role and yesterday after my 2nd interview, I was offered the job that I could only have hoped to have got a few months ago.
Barry – Buying Assistant – Sutton
“I can’t thank you enough for ALL your support. I still hope to see some of those lovely colleagues for a drink (so will let you know if that happens!), and anyway, I’ll definitely keep in touch.
I’m seeing two or three ex colleagues from in January so I’ll definitely be singing your praises. Thanks once again for being not only professional but also treating me with integrity, which is rarer than it should be in this cutthroat world.”
Natasha – Marketer, Epsom
Hope you’re well, thank you so much for the lovely card from you all at Optima.
First week has been great! The people are so friendly and have welcomed me with open arms. 😊 Big thank you again for all your help, you made it so easy for me!
I have recommended Optima to some friends who are currently job hunting. Best of luck in the future!
Elliot – Coordinator – Leatherhead
‘I would like to take the time to thank and recommend Optima Recruitment. They are very professional, thorough and caring of their clients.
Thank you for sourcing and finding me my permanent job with a very secure and sound company – thank you for your professionalism and care.’
George – Warehouse Operative – Leatherhead
Optima has been a preferred agency of ours for many years. They have consistently supplied us with candidates that have the skills and the attitude we look for which is shown by the amount of people Optima has recruited for us. The team is both professional and friendly. They have a great knowledge of the market and candidates have always reported having had a good experience with Optima.
In addition, the team are patient with just the right amount of tenacity to ensure that things happen in a timely fashion. It’s not easy when agendas and requirements change, but they always manage to quickly adapt and keep moving forward. They are a great recruiting partner.

Optima will be highly recommended to my network! Thanks again.’

Susan – Customer Associate – Leatherhead
‘I would like to thank Optima Recruitment and their consultant Natalie Prince for all their help in securing my next job role. They read through your CV and contact you to understand your needs and what you are looking for in a job. They will then seek out the perfect roles and help coordinate interviews.
I was surprised by all the help and information they give you about interviews. Natalie provided me with good advice and tips and was always ready to answer the phone if I had a question. Thank you all again.’
Emma – Relations Executive – Chessington
‘I have been to so many recruitment agencies with no success, they never really cared about me I was only just another number. However, Optima has been by far the best recruitment agency I came across.
I spoke to Sarah at my first meeting and she was fantastic! She truly listened and cared about my needs and the type of job I was looking for and gave me so many options.
Throughout the time I had at the agency they kept in contact and kept me posted on any other vacancies available. Eventually, Sarah found me a vacancy which I was really interested and keen on, and with her help and her other colleague Laurie (helped me and gave me lots of good tips for my interview on the day), I managed to get the job!
I am truly thrilled and I would recommend this recruitment agency to anyone, they’ve been really amazing! Keep up with the good work!’
