I have been with Joss for over 5 years now. They have saved my bacon between jobs with phenomenal (incredibly well paid) temp roles and anything they have put me forward for, I have always been down to the final round; they know their candidates and what will work. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Ethical, efficient recruiters and always very supportive and developmental also.

I’ve really enjoyed working with Joss Search, not only have they found me a job but I have also found the experience really helpful with regards to confidence and how best to approach job interviews!

Joss Search is the best thing since sliced bread! I moved to London from New York and within days of meeting Sivan not only did I secure an interview but was afforded an opportunity to get a role that parallels my interests and qualifications perfectly. She is honest, committed to her candidates and clients, and works super fast. Sivan recruits people, not resumes and I would recommend her services to anyone looking for results and not promises. Forever grateful!

I met the team at Joss Search during a particularly challenging job hunt. As a mother of a young child, finding a flexible enough job to accommodate my baby's need without compromising too much on career ambitions proved very difficult. The team were brilliant. Not only did they listen to me when I told them about what kind of job I was looking for, they really paid attention to the details, put themselves in my shoes and basically made it happen! I have been in my new job for a couple of weeks now and I love it! Seriously number one recruitment agency in London!

Personal Assistant, Global Private Equity firm -

Joss Search is a great agency. They were very helpful throughout the interview process for my current role and kept me informed about what was going on. I now have a great role as an HR Assistant in a hedge fund which is giving me some fantastic experience, insight into the world of HR and some great development opportunities. The Joss Search team are all incredibly friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend them to others.

Jaqueline Holmes, Global Investment firm -

I cannot recommend this agency enough. The people are friendly, fabulous, fun but professional and efficient. Without them I wouldn’t be in the amazing place I am now in…….. and that was only within 2 weeks of joining!

EA, Global Private Equity firm -

My love for Joss Search began one chilly November afternoon. I returned from my world travels to the stark realisation of joblessness. JossSearch came to my rescue. They really understood my plight, personality and requirements. The combined super powers of Super-Sivan and her team ensured I was placed within a week in a wonderfully exciting and suitable temp role. Their effortless dedication, persistence and collaborative communication is out of this world. This is not just any recruitment agency where you are forgotten and then called 6 months later, this is personal. They ticked the 'above and beyond' box to ensure I was paid over Christmas AND they also placed me in a fantastic permanent role which I am forever grateful.

A flexible and can-do attitude combined with the willingness to really understand and get into the skin of the client’s requirements really has helped Joss Search & Selection to excel in an increasingly competitive environment. Sivan is able to deliver on the astute understanding that it is not simply a number crunching exercise.
