|David||Client||10||I was very happy with the service from Silven, the only feedback I would give is that on occasions they were phoning my officealmost every day. Sometimes when I had said I would get back to them. I appreciate that there was a delay on our end butsometimes I would end a call and say 'I will get back to you when I hear more' but the next morning I would get a call askingfor an update. It was very positive and great, but if I could give any feedback it would be that the volume of calls were toomuch at a time we were trying to negotiate with the directors. Thanks.||Amanda Dolan|

|Helen||Candidate||10||I was made redundant at the end of March. I had a check in call from Amelia every week, regardless of whether roles wereavailable or not. My role needs were very specific, since my mobility had changed in the last year. Amelia was a source ofguidance and motivation and I don't think she knew just how much her calls were supporting me though a tough time. Ameliaworked closely with her colleagues and when Gemma had a role that was perfect for me, then Gemma took over. Gemmawas considerate and again, really supportive of me. Gemma's communication was excellent, Gemma checked in regularlywith me and gave me feedback every step of the way. I was successful in the role. Gemma continued to check in, even whenI had started.|
I cannot thank you both Amelia and Gemma for their support and consideration at what was a really tough time for me. Theyare worth their weight in gold and I would recommend Silver again in a heartbeat. Thankyou again.

|Simon||Client||10||After confirming a candidate yesterday, I have already given Amy the brief for further vacancies within the business.||Amy Moss|
|Darren||Candidate||10||I would 100% recommend Sliven to anyone I speak to and would score it a 10.|
I do want to speak about Carole Hearne though as my recruitment contact i have had throughout this process.
I am struggling to find the correct words to describe how superb she has been with me, i have dealt with a lot of recruitmentcompanies over the years but especially over the last month or so since going through redundancy and found all the otherspretty inept and i often found myself in the dark not knowing what was going on or they completely ghosted me.
Carole on the other hand has kept me informed and up to date with everything that has been going on, offered me support,rang me after each interview to see how it went, rang the company to ask them how it went and at the end of everything shepitched me over the salary which they were offering and i ended up with 5k a year more than the advertised salary.
Carole is an absolute credit to her profession and has put Sliven in an a glorious light with me, as i am still going throughredundancy i will not be advertising my new position on linked in until i have gone through the full process but once theprocess is completed i will plaster the greatness of Carole and Sliven all over my linked in community.
It's been tough going through redundancy but Carole has helped take away all my fears for the future and put a smile back onmy face, could you please make sure Carole gets the feedback she deserves.
|Andrew||Candidate||10||Fantastic service from Gemma. I don’t see it as a work transaction but as a mentor and colleague||Gemma Harris|
|Angela||Client||10||I have worked with Silven for a few years now, my main contact being Carole Hearn.|

|Amanda||Client||10||Very happy with the overall service we have received from Silven.||Amy Moss|
|Greg||Client||10||I have had excellent communication from all the team at Silven.||Carole Hearn|
|Andy||Candidate||10||From the start of the process Carole was always available for any questions I had, and to keep me updated of any|
When Carole went on annual leave in the middle of the process, her dilligence and professionalism of handing over to Gilbert
and Emma was exceptional, this in turn ensured that the process ran as smoothly as if she were there.
Everyone took the to congratulate me on my new role, it really felt that they were invested in me and my journey.
Well done and thankyou to Carole and all at Silven.

|Sian||Client||10||I have been working with Emma on a few vacancies we've had at Pizza Hut, and Emma has always been fab! For this specific|
role, we actually had an offer out to the first candidate Emma shared (who was also brilliant). Unfortunately she received a
counter offer, and whilst not foreseen was totally out of anyone's hands. Emma quickly got back on the case and found us the
AMAZING Sally. We managed to interview her twice and have an offer out and accepted within 4 days, with her starting just
over a week later! This is all a result of Emma's amazing partnership. I always look forward to speaking to Emma, even when
we're struggling with roles or the bonkers market, she's always bubbly and friendly which makes the process so much more
enjoyable! She is an absolute credit and is someone I know I can trust to bring us great candidates.
Thank you Emma!!

|Josie||Candidate||10||I was very happy with Carole's help and support throughout the process, including helping me deal with conflicting time scales|
and balancing demands on me. She was professional and friendly, took time out to help me set up home technology to
smooth the interview process, and was excellent at facilitating the recruitment process when i was being, at times, quite
pushing and demanding of her due to the parallel application processes i was running at the time.

Carole responded very quickly each time she had new information. I haven't really used external recruitment before, but I was
pleasantly suprised. I felt that Carole was available at anytime I had any questions or concerns and even messaged the
morning of the interview from a personal number I'm assuming before she started work just to check everything was good and
to wish me look. If I was hiring myself I would absolutely seek support from the business based on my experience with Carole

|Tony||Candidate||10||Having unexpectedly finding myself looking for employment at the beginning of the year. I engaged with several recruitmentcompany's and several approached myself, one of which was Silven Recruitment. Carole introduced herself and Silven to me,taking time to understand my situation and my expectations before proceeding to inform me of the opportunity which she feltwould be of interest to me, taking time to explain the role, why the role was available and whom the company were and herlong-term relationship with them. Carole kept me informed and assisted throughout the whole process, talking to me regularlyeven when she had no further updates. I felt Carole was truthful, putting me at ease the whole time, building a trustingrelationship.||Carole Hearn|

Harriet is always friendly and polite and she has said that I can contact her anytime if needed. It would benice if Silven could have given a slightly higher daily rate or give some sort of reward / gift voucher at the end of contracts totheir clients . This would help cover costs with Umbrella fees.|
I hope Silven will be able to help me find other recruitment after my contract with Worldwide Food finishes . I will recommendSilven to my friends and it would be nice if Silven would also consider paying their clients directly rather than going throughUmbrella.
