Our priority is to boost your confidence and ensure that you are fully prepared, so we will cover specific questions and scenarios you are likely to encounter and share our top interview tips with you to set you up to succeed.
Lily and Emma are professional, efficient and very down to earth. They have placed me in both temp and perm positions and my experiences were very positive. The best recruitment agency I have used. Would definitely recommend.
Marie, Partners' Secretary
Unlike any recruitment agency I have ever used. The team at Lily Shippen are true professionals, who care about finding the best fit for you, not about the commission. I’m now two months into a role within an exciting and dynamic company, and I couldn’t be happier.
Roisin, PA to CEO
Victoria is one of the most skilful and empathetic recruiters I have met. She puts you at ease and hones in on your attitude and strengths, layering and matching them to client requirements.
Beverly, Director of Strategy
