What People Say About Us
I first came across Karen from Advance Recruitment some years ago when I was building a sales team, but since that time she has remained in touch and has shown interest in my own personal career journey. Therefore, when approached to consider a new position, my prior knowledge and relationship with her were the key factors in me investing the time to listen to her. Karen truly understood my drivers and only put opportunities forward that matched these, thus finding me an exciting new role that I didn’t even know I was looking for! Karen takes a personal interest without being intrusive, she also takes a very honest and direct feedback approach which is much appreciated from a recruitment partner. I would strongly recommend considering Advance, whether it be for personal career progression or to assist in sourcing for your organisation. Shona
Liv has helped me find roles on 2 occasions. One of which was during the pandemic - an especially difficult period for many. Both times, Liv has been a tremendous help, with her continuous support and regular follow up. I would recommend Liv and Advance Recruitment. Thank you Liv.
Liv was so helpful and efficient with finding my current role and assisting me through my interview/employment process. Kept me up to date throughout the whole process and I always felt like she acted as my advocate. Highly recommend, I am now in a job that I love with a much better work life balance.
After deciding on a change of career Liv was instrumental in helping me achieve my aims. Liv was extremely friendly and helpful during my search for the perfect job in medical device sales. Liv provided me with a wealth of opportunities with a variety of exciting companies in the medical field and gave me great tips and advice prior to each interview. Without a doubt it would have been much more difficult to make the jump into medical sales without her help! Liv was prompt in following up companies for feedback after I had interviewed and I really felt like she had my back during my job hunt. Thanks again for the help and advice, I wish you every success going forward in your career. Diolch yn fawr iawn Liv :)

Liv was extremely supportive while I was trying to find a role in the medical sales industry.

I recommend her based on her supportive manner, her ability to focus on your transferable skills, and her belief in her clients
Liv was brilliant, she took me on when I struggled to find someone who would, she coached me into being interview ready and I landed the first role she put me up for - a role I was delighted to accept in a field I had been trying to enter for several years as a career switch.

For anyone looking to further their career, I could not give a higher recommendation than Liv. Liv was one of the first recruiters that I spoke with upon entering industry and has maintained a fantastic relationship with me until present. Liv helped me with obtaining a graduate role in pharmaceutical sales, and most recently, the transition from pharmaceuticals to medical device sales. Liv has truly understood my wants and needs from my work and aligned them brilliantly with the correct roles. Keep up the good work Liv & thank you!
I honestly couldn’t recommend anyone more than Liv. It’s taken me just over a month from getting in touch with her to me securing my first role as a territory manager. I could not have made it there without her and I can’t thank her enough. Whatever problem I have she helps me however she can without a second thought. If you’re thinking of getting into graduate medical sales then this is the woman to be in touch with! Her knowledge is extensive whether that be in the role you’re going in to or her connection with the people that work there, thank you so so much!
From our first encounter via Skype I could tell that Liv’s process was a thorough one, compared with other recruiters I had worked with. Liv interviewed me in a relaxed manor and we built a great professional relationship in the weeks/months we worked together. I feel Liv was able to match me perfectly with potential jobs and always kept me updated. I am completely grateful to Liv for matching me up with my new graduate job and couldn’t have done it without her help and support through the process!
Liv was extremely supportive with helping me secure my first role within the medical device industry. She went above and beyond to help me prepare for interviews and eventually secure my current role. Liv was recommended me to by previous candidates that she had helped find jobs. After my positive experience I would happily recommend Liv in the future to anyone looking to get into medical sales.
I was Liv’s client for approximately one week and in that week she managed guide me through to the start point of my career. From interview advice to perfect job matching she was brilliant. Would highly highly recommend, not just for her job aptitude but also for the way she is able to make you feel at ease transitioning into your new position.
Liv is kind and understanding, providing great help throughout the recruitment process. She is also very supportive, organised and I’d highly recommend her! Thanks Liv
I have had the pleasure of working with Liv since 2014. Being a candidate going forward to interviews was made 100% better knowing that Liv had my interests as a priority and she gave me honest and well thought out advise throughout. I have now been placed in a role I love and I put that down to how well I was looked after by Liv during my time job hunting! I would highly recommend speaking with Liv to anyone.

I can't thank Liv enough for all her hard work in finding me a new job. She has been fantastic with every process we went through, from initially letting me know the role she thought would suit me, to sending me all the information, to preparing and sorting out the 1st interviews and finally to feeding back to me. Her attention to details in brilliant. Her professionalism is second to none. Thank you Liv.
I had recently graduated from university and was looking to start a career in medical sales. I was put in contact with Liv from a friend and she was nothing but help from day one. She got me an interview within a week of first contact. Liv then went above and beyond in helping me throughout the interview process. Thanks again, Liv.
Getting into Medical Devices as a graduate can be a very difficult process. However, Liv provided me with detailed information, great knowledge and vital advice from start to finish. Her positive and upbeat nature was very consistent throughout the whole process, which ended in a very successful way. All the best, Jackson!
I had been looking for a career change from Health Promotion into Medical Device Sales... a fairly big change with no previous sales experience. Liv contacted me with details of a role at a company which I hadn't heard of previously. The more I researched the company, the more I felt it (and the role) were a great fit for me. Liv supported me prior to each stage of the recruitment process, providing me with detailed information of what I could expect based on the experiences of people who had interviewed with them previously. Her communication was excellent and she has a really friendly and supportive demeanour. I've now completed my training with the company and am loving everything about them and the role so far. I'd highly recommended working with Liv to everyone. Thanks Liv :-)

From initial contact until I was successfully placed me into a role, Liv consistently supported me in my applications. She went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and provided an approachable but professional service. Highly recommend!
From start to finish Liv was exceptional to work with. Having signed up with a few agencies, Liv was the ONLY one who listened to my requirements and met them fully. She has been a pleasure to deal with and truly goes above and beyond. My employers also mentioned that due to her professionalism and job matching skills, that they know any CV sent by her was worth reading. Charece
I had the pleasure of working with Liv not that long ago when I decided I wanted to move from Pharmaceutical sales into Medical Devices. Throughout the process Liv was extremely helpful in not only finding me a role suited to what I wanted but also helping me prepare for the interview itself. I found Liv to be an extremely friendly and organised individual and couldn’t fault her. I have gone on to recommend Liv to several of my friends who have wanted to pursue careers in medical devices!

Providing on going support throughout the interview process she was honest and extremely. Working to her customers timeframe and not pushing if the role does not feel right. If you are considering a career in Medical Sales or already experienced, Olivia is definitely the person to talk to and get advice from. Thanks Liv
“Over the last year David has acted on my behalf to help secure a position in Medical Sales. At every stage in this process he has been a constant and tireless advocate and advisor. David is always positive and even at times, in what can be lengthy processes, he has been supportive and once again, always thinking of the positives. David is responsive, committed and I have never found him to be in anything other than a cheerful, professional and forward thinking mindset. The time he has put in with myself alone is very considerable. He is thorough with complete attention to detail. And I must point out that David went the extra, extra mile earlier this year – this was impressive and says everything about him and his desire as a recruiter to do whatever he can for his client, candidate and of course Advance, to reach an outcome beneficial to all parties. He is a credit to himself and the Company he represents. I am extremely grateful for all his hard work and utter dedication which has paid off in the form of me being offered today a post I dearly wanted. I would absolutely not have achieved this without David’s guidance. The highest compliment I can give David is this – I would want him on my team. I would recommend David without any hesitation to anyone looking to find a position in medical sales. Indeed I would actually urge those potential candidates to get in touch with David at Advance Recruitment.”
“Karen is an excellent recruitment consultant who places the needs of her contacts looking for new positions equal to the needs of her business for successful placements. She worked tirelessly to find me a new position to ensure my career progression was met in a timely manner. I highly recommend Karen for anyone looking for a change of role in the Medical Marketing business..”
“I would highly recommend Advance to anyone looking for work in medical sales. Not only were they professional and helpful, they took the time to find out what I was looking for and lined up interviews that would suit me. Advance were always on hand to give advice and help with interviews which helped me to find the job I was looking for and succeed with the application process.”
“I have never had a recruiter that worked so hard to find a suitable position for me. It is also rare now to find a recruiter that rings you with roles regularly and rings to update you on their search even when he doesn't have a suitable role. Dave's guidance and help was absolutely invaluable and it was because of that, that we were able to secure a role for myself. If you are looking for a role or looking for a recruitment company for your role then I cannot recommend Dave and Advance highly enough..”
“From having used multiple other recruitment agencies, my customer experience with Advance far exceeds any of these. It was quite clear from the beginning that the consultants at Advance were willing to go the extra mile to help their candidates secure the best positions available. Not only did Advance get me interviews with the three top medical device companies in the world, but the excellent guidance I received to prepare me for the interviews helped me in securing a dream job in a very competitive market. The consultants at Advance are a very friendly bunch and are quite clearly very results driven. I will certainly be using their services for future job opportunities.”
“Thank you for believing in me – it has made all the difference. In comparison with some of the other agencies that I have dealt with over the last couple of months, Advance had really pulled out all the stops and given me outstanding service. If asked to recommend an agency I would recommend yours without hesitation. Your team has been fantastic and it has been a real pleasure to work with you. Thank you very much.”
“Your knowledge and advice helped me secure a fantastic position in cardiac device sales, thank you so much.”
"Dave was absolutely fantastic. Took a real interest in me and felt like he tailored everything to my needs was very open and transparent and was a pleasure to deal with. Got my dream job and would definitely work with him again without a shadow of a doubt! Great guy 5*!"
"Liv has been absolutely outstanding for me in my pursuit of a new career. From the outset Liv was extremely interested and keen to gauge what exactly i was looking for. She was very friendly and welcoming from my initial Skype interview. She was very thorough and kept me updated whenever there was a new role available. Live was always at the other end of the phone if i ever needed anything clarifying or for a friendly piece of advice. Before interviews Liv would call to give me a voice of support and to make sure everything was okay. An incredibly professional recruiter who is committed to finding the perfect role for her candidates."
"I have relied on Karen at Advance Recruitment for many years to find me exceptional sales people for medical sales roles. Her service is excellent; candidates arrive on time well prepared for their interviews. I would highly recommend her to employers and employee’s alike."
It’s rare that you come across a brilliant recruiter like Dave. Ridiculously efficient is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Dave. I was particularly impressed at how Dave went the extra mile to prepare me for all stages of the interview process. He was very supportive and offered constructive criticism to ensure I had the best chance at getting the role. If you’re looking for a true recruitment partner who’ll work with you to ensure you secure your next role within Pharma or medical device then Dave is the man. Isaac
