Wonderful agency. Bryony is a star! As an older job seeker I thought I would struggle to find work. She put me at ease and took me through the application, forwarded my details, arranged an interview, then a follow up chat to let me know I had been offered the job, all within a few days!! Cant praise her or the agency enough. Thank you so, so much.

An incredible team that helped me secure a job! Fortem People were amazing and supportive throughout the whole process. A shout-out to Esther and Rachel for being open, transparent and genuinely caring when it came to securing a role. This company is leagues above all the other recruitment agencies that contacted me through LinkedIn. They checked in with me by email and phone and were able to help at each stage of the process. I can't thank them enough for helping me get my new job.

Fortem really are a fantastic employment agency. They are lovely people and found my perfect job. I was going through quite a rocky patch and needed a job to suit my new circumstances, Fortem found this for me, kept myself informed at all stages and have carried on keeping in touch even after I started my new role. It's not an understatement to say that without Fortem, my life wouldn't have the happiness and bright outlook that it now has. Thank you.
