Head of Recruitment and People Analytics | Sainsbury's

I approached McCarthy when we had an unusual requirement for assistance with a volume management recruitment campaign. We worked together to create a bespoke process and a way of working that delivered what we needed in terms of numbers and timescales whilst remaining within my budget. We had worked with McCarthy for some time but we had not recruited at this volume before and I needed a supplier I could rely on to deliver but also work closely with my internal teams and ultimately a partner we could trust.

McCarthy were easy to work with, they are upfront, honest, challenging, and flexible in their approach;  they have delivered over 200 hires with a ratio of fewer than 3 CVs to successful placement in short timescales. They have assisted us as a true partner and their professionalism and passion for doing a great job shines through with each interaction.

We continue to work with them in partnership and assisting with many new and diverse projects.
