Ballast Phoenix

Successful candidate was so impressed, he engaged ACR to help recruit

Having secured his current job through Anne Corder Recruitment it made perfect sense for Ray Bentley to engage the agency to help source new team members.

As part of his job search process, Ray posted his CV to a number of websites. Searching for candidates for a client’s accounts manager vacancy, the ACR team spotted Ray’s suitability.

“A member of the ACR team contacted me while I was on a business trip and discussed the position with Ballast Phoenix Ltd,” said Ray. “After that initial call, I dropped in without an appointment to register. They were very accommodating and I registered on the spot.”

Ray was impressed with the agency’s involvement in, and communication during, the entire process.

“The agency was very professional and kept in touch regularly, even after I was placed in the role,” said Ray.

Ray started at the Bourne-based company, which processes waste material for use as a sustainable source of aggregate, in January 2012. When a vacancy arose in his department, which covers HR, administration and general accounts, he went straight to ACR.

“As an agency, they already knew and understood our business and, in particular, my department,” said Ray. “Again their professionalism stood out. They remained involved at every step.”
