"Instant Impact have been our trusted graduate recruitment partners since 2012. For the first few years, their focus was on helping us to steadily growing our in-house team of Editorial Managers, and in that time they made more than 20 placements. As our business needs and operating model began to change, Instant Impact adapted their recruitment processes to accommodate our new requirements and made 35 contract/freelance placements in a very short timeframe. We work with Instant Impact not just because of their willingness and ability to meet any every recruitment challenge we give them, but because we trust them to represent our brand and know they care as much as we do about finding quality talent."

We were impressed by the calibre of candidate that Instant Impact put forward, particularly in such a tight timeframe, and the team were responsive to changes in our requirements and the challenges of an interview panel working from different locations and across timezones. The result was a high success rate and conversion of candidates to offer – for both the UK and UAE."

"The team at Instant Impact were impressive. I called them on the Friday, and they came round that day and discussed options and took the time to understand and explore what we were looking for. They brought an excellent shortlist for us the following Wednesday, all high quality but from a range of backgrounds, saving us having to trawl through hundreds of CVs. We had enjoyable interviews on the Friday, and hired a great intern that day. She’s proved to be even better than we expected and we’ve just offered her a permanent contract."
