“Alex was fantastic”
Alex was fantastic to work with throughout my recruitment process. She was really invested in ensuring that I understood as much as possible about the role offered and that it would be a good fit for me, and was so supportive with all of my questions. She kept in touch through the whole process, ensuring I had the best chance of success, and I would thoroughly recommend working with her.
Wonderful experience to work with Alex. She walked me through the whole job searching process and gave a strong feeling being cared. She kept me informed and stand for me without doubts. Alex is very professional and engaged. Thank you Alex for your support!
“A good and solid recruitment consultant”
I would recommend Alex to anyone looking for a good and solid recruitment Consultant. She kept in touch at every step in recruitment process, made sure everything was in order, and is in general a nice personality to work with. Even after my hiring, she kept in touch in order to see everything is going fine my way.
“I am confident in Next Phase's ability to help me secure the right role”
I found the introductory discussion with Steve very helpful and informative. I felt he understood my requirements and had a good idea of the types of roles that would suit me. Overall I am confident in Next Phase’s ability to help me secure the right role.
“She was always available for any questions or doubts, even for the trickiest ones”
Alex is foremost a wonderful and kind person. On top of that, she's an amazing professional with a clear objective in mind - to bring success for all her contacts.In my case, Alex contacted me for a really interesting job offer that was tailored to me from the first moment. She not only followed up closely with the full interview and hiring process, but she helped with the contract definition and caught up regularly with me during the onboarding phase. She was always available for any questions or doubts, even for the most "tricky" ones.I definitely recommend Alex as remarkable professional.
“I could tell that Alex was going to do anything possible to help me get to where I wanted to be”
I got into contact with Alex through LinkedIn. Alex replied to my message within an hour and the process started from there. After some initial conversations I could tell that Alex was going to do anything possible to help me get to where I wanted to be. After a couple of days I already have my first interview booked in. Alex supported me through both stages of the interview process which in turn resulted in a job offer for my dream job/company.I am very grateful that Alex and Next Phase Recruitment was recommended to me as I am very happy in my new role. I have since recommended Alex to others who are in the process of looking for similar roles.
“She is an extraordinary job consultant”
I highly recommend Alex Butcher as an extraordinary job consultant and is amazing at her job! She knows her way around people, she is good with the very transparent communication, does whatever it takes to help others and gets things done. She makes sure that everyone is on the same page and focused on the main goal.
“She was supportive, informative and reliable”
Thanks to Alex, I have taken the next step in my career by joining one of the largest pharma companies in the world, which I couldn't be more excited about. Alex was supportive, informative and reliable throughout the recruitment process and always kept me updates on the progress of things. Her regular contact from application to acceptance and working my notice period in my previous job was very helpful and reassuring as it made me feel kept in the loop. I couldn't recommend Alex highly enough, and I look forward to keeping in touch with her over the coming months.
“Next Phase Recruitment are a wonderful team”
Next Phase Recruitment are a wonderful team. Alex has a lot of drive and passion and really shows support and belief in those she works with. I would not be where I am today without her encouragement and support! Thank you Alex, it has been wonderful having you on this part of my journey!
“If you need a change, please contact Next Phase”
A few months ago, Alex contacted me regarding a new position. Since the beginning she was really nice and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Alex for her professional approach, support and social skills. If you need a change, please contact Next Phase!
“She even remembered my first day, as she sent a message to wish me luck!”
Alex Butcher was for me the right person at the right time! From our first phone call back in the summer of 2021, when I didn't yet know what I wanted for my professional career, Alex has been there to help me and guide me in the right direction. Even though the first position she proposed to me didn't result in a success, she helped me receiving a much better job fit some weeks later. Where I believe a lot of head-hunters stop contacting you once you have signed, Alex stayed with me during my entire notice period, contacting me to see if everything was going well.
“She really takes the time and actively listens”
I only have great things to say about all the support and guidance Alex has given when finding my current role. She really takes the time and actively listens, never tried to oversell or push any decisions as many recruiters do. I feel that I am not just another number in this partnership. Diligently obtained clarifications, following up closely always very timely and accompanying the entire process from our initial exploratory conversation until after the placement had started.
“One of the kindest recruiters I have ever worked with”
Alex is one of the kindest recruiters I have ever worked with! She reached out to me for a potential role that matched my profile, and I couldn't have had a smoother process! Alex makes sure she listens to you and your wants and needs, she reaches out and checks back, and she is always there in case you have any questions. Thanks Alex for being such an amazing person, really appreciate all your time and always being there!
“I'd love to get headhunted by her again!”
Through her thorough understanding of the life science business and role she was recruiting for, Alex showed me she was not taking the shotgun approach like many recruiters do, but had hand-picked me and that the new role was really well-fitted to my profile. I remained satisfied throughout the entire process. Her aim was evidently not to get someone hired asap and jump to the next assignment. I always felt that she was supporting me as much as the client company that hired her to recruit me, and a happy and long-standing outcome for both was her ultimate goal. All in all, a great experience and I'd love to get headhunted by her again any time!
“Constant support through my change in employment”
Alex at Next Phase is personable, easy to approach, and an excellent conversationalist. One of her best traits as a recruiter has to be her ability to filter opportunities to only those that genuinely interest you (every role she shared was appropriate and exciting) and she is never pushy with things you aren't interested in. Alex has been a constant support through my change in employment and seems to have a 6th sense for when to reach out, pre-empting questions right when i needed to know the most.
“Willing to take time and effort ”
Alex has helped me through the process of gaining successful employment at Digital Lab Consulting. Alex is very professional and helpful. She is willing to take the time and effort to insure you are as prepared and relaxed for interviews as you can be.
“"Every contact is a genuine opportunity to explore"”
Alex has been helping me find a new role, putting me forward to potential employers until the pandemic struck. She still continued to work hard to find suitable opportunities and eventually her hard work paid off and landed me a new role at Zifo. She is not like most other recruiters who blank email you with irrelevant jobs, every contact with Next Phase is a genuine opportunity to explore. I will recommend Next Phase to anyone who is looking for a new role
“Best experience by far”
Alex ensured to only send me relevant positions and wasted no time I'm getting the ball rolling. The best experience by far in my career working with someone in recruitment. I recommend Alex for anybody looking for a position or looking for staff.
“Invests Time & Understands”
There aren't many recruiters who genuinely invest time to understand your current role & future requirements, Next Phase is an exception. Next Phase has actively sought the appropriate opportunities and presented positions relevant to me. In such a niche market, I'd trust Next Phase to find the fitting vacancies that suit both the employer and employee
I was approached by Next Phase, by Alex and it was an excellent experience from start to finish. During 2020, a very hard year for us all, Alex was always there, very positive, very helpful and did everything so that I can find the perfect opportunity for my career. Very pleased to have worked with Next Phase, recommend very highly. Thank you
