"Just a quick mail to say that thanks to your site I have secured a position full time and will be returning to work after 4 months."
"I utilised Sue's site, www.pooletogether.co.uk to advertise a vacancy I had within my company recently. I wasn't sure what kind of results I would expect, especially up against some of the big online recruitment sites out there, but the actual results left me astounded! For a fraction of the cost of an advert with one of the National recruitment websites, I found that the responses from Sue's advert gave me a ten-fold increase in responses over my other sources. Ultimately, having just recruited another two employees, I am delighted that both new starters came via www.pooletogether.co.uk, although I am disappointed that I wasted money on another recruitment site, but that won't be a mistake I make again. Sue, I don't know how you do it for the money - but I'm glad you do! I won't hesitate to use your services again and I urge any other companies looking to recruit in our area to give you a try."
"I'm happy to endorse Poole Together. Over 60 applicants to my recent advert, nine of whom are going to be long listed. Best recruitment result yet. Especially as it is so affordable."
"We’ve received over 90 CVs and we are confident that we will find the right candidate amongst them. Thanks for your help"
"Thank you very much for running the adverts. We have received a great response with regard to each of the positions and will now hopefully make good appointments"
"I have used Sue's company a couple of times and found her work to be outstanding, delivering a high calibre of candidate, timely and excellent value. I will definately use Poole Together again and highly recommend her to anyone with staffing needs"
"As a company we were looking to grow our work force but were unsure how to start looking for the right person. Sue was able to offer professional targetted advice that generate a significant number of good quality applicants. Would definately recommend Sue and her company"
"We used Sue for a recruitment project and she was very considerate, reliable and prompt in helping us. The service she provides is very good value to any business trying to navigate the current economic climate and I would recommend her and her company as an option if you're looking for new staff."
"I would happily recommend Sue and Poole Together to anybody searching for staff, the Poole Together website is extremely user friendly and provides great results."
"We have used Poole Together many times whilst recruiting for our expanding bookkeeping and payroll company and Sue has always advised us well on wording to ensure we comply with all legislations. Her website has so many openings into other sites that we had the benefit of great exposure due to all her endless contacts. We have already recommended Sue to our clients and would have no hesitation in singing her praises to anyone who would listen."
"I have used Sue's Poole Together recruitment website on a number of occasions and found it an excellent method of gaining staff . Sue is extremely easy to deal with, professional and very focussed. She's a pleasure to do business with."

"Thank you very much for your assistance, you truly offer a wonderful, value for money service."
"Thanks Sue - we have seen an applicant from the advert that you put out for us who looks really promising, so fingers crossed!"
"Sue's initiative Pooletogether works really well for our business, it's flexible, inexpensive and we get results, she is a local recruitment expert and we are very happy to refer her to our members who are looking to grow their businesses"
"I've just had a very strong candidate apply for the role from Poole Together and she's coming in tomorrow morning at 9:00"
"I have interviewed two people from pooletogether so far, big thanks for that!"
"Last week we asked you to prepare two new adverts for local distributors, commission only and with an immediate start. As usual you attended to our needs almost immediately. After checking through our requirements the adverts were up and running on the Poole Together website the same day. With your targeted approach and ‘Latest Jobs’ section, we had several responses within hours. We have contacted the respondents and are hopeful on filling one of the vacancies soon. You are not only very efficient, but it is also nice to find someone who actually listens to our needs and helps accordingly. You front a very professional company which must pride itself on customer satisfaction. With your continued excellent service and customer communications, we know we will be in good hands the next time we call. Finally, we have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your company to others. Once again, a big thank you and we will most definitely continue to use your services in the future."
"We are a high quality local bookkeeping and payroll company and pride ourselves on attention to detail and as such we were very pleased with the guidance you gave to us when we were looking for our latest member of staff to help our constantly expanding team. With your skill and careful guidance on phrasing we could place an advertisement without discrimination and yet still obtain the very experienced person we required. Your website is so popular and links into so many worthwhile places that before the end of the first day we had CVs being emailed, and not just any CVs good quality relevant ones. By the middle of the first week we had to withdraw the advertisement due to the overwhelming response of suitable candidates. Hesitation in recommending … none… we cannot sing the praises high or loud enough. From all the team here thank you for your time, effort and guidance and we will without any doubt be back to you for our next member of staff and meanwhile we are telling everyone we can about what a fantastic service you offer and how worthwhile and cost effective it is. Keep up the fantastic business Sue, it is a pleasure to work with you."
"Thank you for the email regarding a company requesting my details. Unfortunately, it would seem that they need someone more qualified than myself. I have thanked them for their interest and would like to thank you for your continued support."
"Poole Together is an excellent recruitment site, well designed and easy to navigate, with a good range of jobs that go beyond the usual. I was able to find a job that suited me perfectly and coincidentally my new role puts me in regular contact with the Poole Together team, who are a joy to work with. I recommend Poole Together to anyone in the area who is looking to hire or to be hired."
"We have had a great response to our ad and the Poole Together website has generated 14 applications to date (30% of the applications received). I will certainly promote the site to our managers again the next time we have a vacancy. Terrific value for money! Many thanks
"Many thanks Sue. I have certainly seen a good number of responses in my inbox so far this morning!"
"Poole Together is a great website for advertising local jobs. We have found the best success using this site - and it's extremely economical! Many thanks!"
"Thanks Sue - we had around 20 applicants! I have selected about 5 for interview next week. We seem to be well set for the rest of the year but I will let you know if a need arises. Thanks for your help, it's an excellent solution!"
"Thanks to Sue we managed to present a well worded advert for recruiting another bookkeeper to join our expanding office and within one day of the advert being placed on Sue's site we had more than 12 worthy respondents. We had to stop advertising within one week and we have found a very successful suitor. Thanks again to Sue's input and guidance and very affordable advertising costs. We would have no hesitation in using her every time but more so recommending her to everyone and anyone we can for good value for money expertise and ease of use. Thank you Sue"
"I found Poole Together an invaluable resource both for advertising our roles in a cost effective way but also it has proved useful to see details of prospective candidates looking for employment. The web site is very comprehensive with lots of varied candidates seeking work from all walks of life. I recommend Poole Together to both employers looking for prospective employees and also for those seeking work.""Second time I have used you and again a good response and again I have taken on someone who applied via Poole together.
"We had a very good response and managed to fill the post!. Will definitely use you again."
'We are very impressed with the website and see it as a valuable recruitment tool for our depot in Poole. We had a fantastic response from our last advert and this looks like being the same!'
'I have now filled this vacancy. The response was overwhelming I have never had so many applicants for a job. I placed this job in the Echo a while ago and had a 10th of the applicants.'
"Thank you for a very user friendly website"
"Yes - a good result from just the one advert - brilliant! We are taking on our new Beauty Development Manager to work with us next week, as a result. Thank you so much"
"We have received quite a few applications for each of these roles and although the shortlisting has not taken place yet, I feel that we have enough applications to have a promising shortlist for each role. Thank you for your excellent service."
"Sue has provided an excellent value for money recruitment service with Poole Together. Sue is always helpful and I would recommend her website to any company which is recruiting in the local area."
"Sue has provided great recruitment services several times over the years, and I have always had great results! Highly recommended."
"Sue is a true business person and a wonderful person to meet. Running a successful business, one can see, is purely as a result of her hard work and expertise."
"We have used Sue on several occasions now for our vacancy advertising and will continue to do so when the need arises. Sue is extremely quick to respond and offers excellent support and guidance. We would not hesitate to recommend Sue to anyone requiring her services."
"We advertised in three places - pooletogether, jobcentreplus and totaljobs and for whatever reason, the quality of applications via pooletogether is much better than the other two, so I would definitely prioritise pooletogether next time and will recommend to others."
"We were immensely pleased with the response we received from the advert we placed on your site for a Science Technician. We received over thirty applications and feel we have made an excellent appointment, just from the one advert on your site."
"I have been receiving your update mails for possible job opportunities and I now wish to unsubscribe as I have found a job. Yours has been one of the best websites and processes I have used, many thanks."
"I have known Sue for over 2 years now and throughout that time I have always been impressed with her diligence, enthusiasm and professionalism that she approaches every task with. She has a unique abilty to get the very best out of everyone she works with and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sue to anyone."
"After 20 years of running my kitchen business, the time had come for me to take on a PA. I discussed my requirements with Sue, she placed an advert on her website and within a few days I had received 22 enquires from potential candidates. The quality of the people that responded was incredible - I really hadn't expected my biggest headache to be choosing between so many high calibre individuals! She offers a tremendous service for a very low cost and I would highly recommend anyone in a similar situation to seek her advice."
"Sue has been very helpful and her website provides an effective service generating swift responses."
"We have had a good number of responses and are interviewing at present. Overall I was very impressed with the service, and would certainly use it again."
"We received 22 applications for the Science Technician vacancy and all as a result of your website! Very pleasing indeed."
"Hi Sue - I just wanted to let you know that we found a lovely practice nurse by advertising on your site recently so we are very happy! Considering we spent over £400 via other advertising I can't begin to tell you how pleased we are and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to all the Dorset Practice Managers and using your site for all future vacancies! Great site and a fantastic price! Thank you"
"I can recommend Poole Together as a brilliant site, we have had huge responses to our adverts and we refer our clients to the website all the time. Thank you Sue." Lin Manners, Best Training
"Once again, Sue, we have had great applicants and filled the job quickly. Your website works brilliantly for us"
"We hired the services of Sue Franklin of Poole Together and found her to be a person that knows the employment business extremely well. We took her advice on how to gain more staff for our company and within 2 days of speaking with her and using her services we had enough suitably qualified applicants to help us in our quest to achieve what was required. Thank you Sue."
"Thank you, Sue - We did fill our position with a great candidate and we had two others suitable we had to knock back. We have another part time job coming up we will be putting on your site next week."
"Thanks Sue for a fantastic service yet again, we paid 15 pounds for a week's worth of advertising on the Poole Together website and we have found a fantastic new recruit! We pay 10 to 15% commission of the first year's salary to recruitment agencies so that would be a few thousand pounds normally, so by finding our new recruit for just 15 pounds we could technically advertise for free for the next 11 years! Excellent and cost effective, thanks again."
"Sue has been very helpful from the first time I initially made contact to advertise a vacancy, right through to ensuring that I was able to use the website properly and successfully fill the position. I have no hesitation in recommending Sue and her company and I will personally continue to use her services for my recruitment needs."
"Sue is meticulous in all work she carries out, she is highly professional and has a wonderful knack of knowing exactly what is required to put the right words to make your advertisement short sharp and highly presentable. The first time I used Poole Together Ltd I was delighted to receive a response to the advert Sue did for me within a couple of days. Sue is reliable, trustworthy and willingly goes that step further if required. Sue is more than happy to adjust the details you have given, always ready to help with wording until you are happy with the end result. Using Poole Together Ltd is a wonderful solution to a frustrating part of running a business and is one I highly recommend."
"I found the Poole Together website easy to use and very cost effective. Anyone looking to promote a vacancy quickly and to a wide audience should use the website."
"Using Sue's Poole Together website was remarkably quick, simple and effective. Not only that but it was good value too. Within a very few days I had a wide range of good quality candidates to choose from. Next time I am recruiting I shall undoubtedly be calling on Sue's services again."
"We put an advert on Poole Together and I have been astonished by the results. We have had several candidates for the experienced sales and marketing role and I never would have thought we could get such incredible recruitment results from a simple, cost effective web ad! thank you sue!"
"I have received over 30 applications and I am busily shortlisting those applicants with suitable experience. I am hopeful that I will be able to make an appointment very soon.
Thank you for providing the service which has proved to be very effective."
"I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to you and your team for the support and help you recently provided. As you may remember we desperately found ourselves needing an extra pair of hands to help with a rapid increase in work. On the same day as you offered to help, we had an advert on the internet and were receiving calls from prospective new employees!!! The service you provided was fantastic and the expertise offered in terms of what to write and where to place it was first class.
We received over 150 replies in 3-4 days and were able to shortlist and then find a successfully applicant. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company and its services to anyone looking to recruit and again please again my thanks for all of your help."
"Dear Sue, I would just like to say thank you for the fantastic work you do at Poole Together Ltd. Through you we were able to employ the right person for the vacancy we had. We were inundated with many good quality applicants and we found the right person that not only had all the right qualifications we were looking for but also the right person to become a member of our successful team. He was just what we were looking for. Well done and keep up the great work."
"Our ad with you did generate a couple of applications, so it was money well spent. We haven’t interviewed yet but we’re hopeful of appointing."
"I just wanted to let you know that you listed our advert for us at 11 this morning and we had our first CV in at 4 o'clock!! So fantastic value, thanks for all your help"
"Sue organized the recruitment ad so quickly and effectively that I had emails and telephone calls within an hour of it going live. She provided me with an excellent service and without hesitation I can recommend her recruitment services. Thanks Sue."
"We have been very impressed with this website and will definitely be using it again"
"Thank you for your regular updates and snippets.
While presently I am not looking to recruit anyone they are still very useful gems of wisdom frequently overlooked. They are also personally helpful in my quest to win new business in a tangential kind of way, as they help me understand how others perceive me."
"Thanks very much the advert looks really good and I have already had a promising contact call me!"
"I would just like to say, how brilliant this website is. I have been unemployed for just about 6 months and I have been registered with you for about a month. you have sent me details of more jobs than anyone including jobcentreplus. I'm still looking and hoping to find that job, but this site has been more helpful than any other. Thank you, you've kept me from the scrapheap."
"I hired Sue to advertise the position of Media Sales Person and after just two weeks I had received some great replies, two of which were excellent quality and I am now making my mind up which one to hire. Sue provides an excellent value for money sevice and I will be using her when required in the future."
"I have known Sue for years but only had the need to use her services recently. We had great results and found the right person. Sue is always friendly and professional and really knows her stuff"
“Sue has been a great asset to Chefhelp in the placement of vacancies for full time and temp staff. Sue has detailed knowledge of recruitment and our meeting was a great success sharing ideas on ways to attract the right staff through Poole Together. Excellent work at a very reasonable cost”
"Working with Sue was a pleasure and she was most diligent and professional in helping me to hire the right personnel"
"I am very pleased (& relieved) to confirm that I have secured a new job. Thank you for your continued efforts during the past month, I shall recommend you to friends & family should they become unemployed."
"Thanks to you - we hope to be able to make an appointment shortly"
"Sue was particularly good at providing a really traditional, but personal service with regards to her recruiting process. She is very thorough and made the business of applying for work so easy, with updates on a regular basis via email. I would recommend her to any business looking for employees as her services are extremely reasonably priced".
"I regularly receive e-copies of all your newsletters and I just wanted to commend you on your recent newsletter regarding tips and techniques for job advertisements.
A few months ago I was faced with the task of advertising a vacancy for my company and I could not find a suitable website anywhere that could help. Most of the sites I found were far too complicated and they often displayed more information about the company than the position they were advertising for!
So, thank you for your handy tips and techniques- I will use them should I advertise another vacancy in the future."
"We used Poole Together and had immediate results. We would not hesitate in using the service again"
"We placed the advert with Poole Together on Tuesday, had our first suitable CV within the hour, interviewed on Thursday and our new recruit started with us Monday morning - the quickest, most efficient and successful way we have ever recruited"
"I have been delighted with the responses that we have received from using Poole Together."
"In the first week we had four CV’s submitted which, because they were the type of people we were targeting meant that was absolutely the right number to meet and interview within a reasonable timescale, bearing in mind that we are already busy in dealing with the ongoing business."
"As you know, we are looking to recruit a number of people in this position and when I ran the advert again last week it has resulted in five more good applicants."
"When I compare this against the cost of advertising in other ways there are three key factors that strike me immediately:
- The number of applicants coming forward
- The quality and relevance of those applicants
- A remarkably cost effective process"
"It is certainly a route that we will now use regularly and I would recommend your simple, straight forward online process to anyone that is looking to fill a vacancy."
"Your website is clear, easy to navigate with concise instructions on how to use it."
Had I known of the existence of this service before going elsewhere, I’d have saved myself a small fortune! For future reference, I shall keep the ‘Poole Together’ details close to hand!
