Success Stories

May – 2020
We may be living in extraordinary times with limited opportunities, but vacancies still need to be filled – and even if we can all only commit to three-month contracts rather than taking on permanent new staff, the quality of the candidate is still key. Been super impressed with how recruiters like Fiona Vennbrook at Purple House have pivoted to fill this need – the role requirements may have changed but her attention to detail and commitment to getting under the skin of a business to match the right people to often very temporary positions is still 100% on point.

Head of Communications, Future Plc

Tom really understood the brief, type of person and culture fit and as a result presented 5 extremely credible candidates to me for interview. I am pleased to say we offered to one who has now started and I’m sure will make a huge difference to us here at Twinings!

Thanks Tom I really couldn’t have done it without you.

Bridget Marshall

HD Director, Twinings

Having conducted a thorough research process, Purple House provided us with a well-considered short, from which we were able to make a first class appointment for a Head of HR. We were delighted with Fiona’s work and would certainly recommend her and Purple House

We have used Purple House exclusively for all of our HR Recruitment over 4 years. They have taken the time to get to know our business & they understand the importance of getting the right cultural fit.

Tom has been great to work with and really took the time to understand our business needs before starting the search. This process has added a much needed personal feel to recruitment and has also given excellent results with successful placements. My thanks to the team. I’m happy to recommend

Robert Parker

I started working with Fiona at Purple House in 2006 & have asked her to source all my hard to fill HR and L&D vacancies. Fiona takes the time to obtain an in depth understanding not only of the challenges of the role but also makes a point of getting to know the business needs and who would fit the company & team culture.”

Ruth Ovens

HR Director, previously of Wilts Wholesale Electrical & Quadriga Worldwide

Fiona always provides me with a well thought through short list of candidates for each role we have placed with Purple House and on each occasion each candidate is more than suitable for the role. Of all the individuals we have found by working with Fiona, each has remained with the business and are progressing very well within our organisation.
