  • Having been made redundant I wasn’t sure where my next job would be and what effect this would have on my career. Joe was instrumental in getting my CV out to the right people, just when they were looking for my skills.

    I received a number of offers and Joe worked hard to drill down into the detail of the offers, including benefits and training opportunities. He was able to make the decision easy for me, and I was left in a better career position than when I started.

    John Markwell - Landscape Architect
  • Joe Synes is definitely your big picture, detailed oriented, go-to guy for seeking new employment.  Through his energetic efforts I secured an interview, offer, and Senior Urban Designer position with one of Britain’s largest planning firms in their flagship headquarters.   Based on my experience, I highly recommend Joe as a design position specialist who not only beats the bushes, but the crowded field of recruitment competition also.

  • Brooke & John were the consultants I worked with while working with Hunter Dunning. I would highly recommend them to anyone, who wants to use a highly-focused, well-organised professional recruitment service. They had a detailed understanding of my expectations, skills, knowledge and experience and were able to really focus on finding the perfect career move for me.
    Within two weeks they had arranged four interviews which matched my requirements well. They worked tirelessly for me throughout the entire process keeping me informed at every stage. All the interviews were great experience. Brooke and John had fully prepared me for my interviews and matched me really well against the roles I was being interviewed for.
    Following these interviews I have now accepted a role via Hunter Dunning and I cannot wait to start! Hunter Dunning are always up to date with the new positions on the market, and they are happy to mediate on your behalf at any stage of the process. I feel very lucky I had an opportunity to work with them.

  • Jayde, has been a joy to work with through my job search, regularly going beyond the remit of her role. She is a genuine person who takes a human approach to her work, making conscientious effort to match the person to the role and vice versa. She forms good relations with clients which give her word weight and integrity. Jayde is professional, expedient, dedicated, any client would do well to have her on their side.

    Yogesh Mistry - Architect
  • I have registered with quite a few agencies, but I have found that your help has been first class – more useful that the other consultants I have liaised with elsewhere ( other consultants have been impersonal).

    I genuinely appreciate the advice you have given me, and the interview you arranged for me (in just two days!!), so I would just like to say thank you, and I hope that there will be some more opportunities arising in the near future from yourself and Hunter Dunning.

    Jimi Deji-Tijan - Part II Architectural Assistant
  • Fern demonstrated a solid understanding of the various types of practice within the industry and the requirements of the role I was interest in. The jobs she outlined for me fitted my criteria well, but she was also prepared to put me forward for roles above my current position based on my level of experience. This was both reassuring and a good confidence boost prior to attending interviews. Unlike most recruiters I’ve used in the past, Fern listened carefully to exactly what I was looking for and what took priority with regards to job satisfaction, progression and the working environment. As a result, I attended an interview a few days after first contacting Fern and received an offer the following morning. Throughout the whole process Fern was patient, understanding and supportive, allowing me the time to make the right decision. I would definitely recommend Fern for recruitment within the industry.
