Candidate Testimonials

Please read below testimonials from some of our recent candidates:

Dennis Grice – Rotating Equipment Engineer

Damia have always acted for me in a most professional manner and kept in occasional contact advising the state of the work situation in the market place. I have been most satisfied with their performance and support.

Garry Rayner – Senior Project Manager

During the last 20 years, I’ve worked with many recruitment companies, both as a recruiter of permanent and temporary staff, and more recently, a independent contractor. My first experience with The Damia Group, in particular Gemma Liebenberg, was during my application for a senior technical role. Gemma was very professional, she deeply understood the client requirements and she kept me informed throughout the protracted selection & security clearence process. Once appointed, Lucy Wilkins managed me through the time sheet, invoicing and payment processing, again well briefed, effective and efficient. The Damia Group have been a pleasure to work with.

Mirko Malisan – Infrastructure Manager

Having spoken to many recruiters over the last few months, Ali definitely stands out as being better than the rest. He was the only recruiter that I spoke to that would call and email when he said he would. He also went out of his way to contact me before and after every interview. That was a nice touch and very reassuring at a nerve racking time. He even responded to my emails on a Sunday, talk about going above and beyond!

I can recommend Ali as the type of recruiter you want to work with during your job search. From initial contact right through to after placement he was always professional and reassuring.

Jaymin Vekaria – Service Desk Analyst

Steve contacted me for a role working with Logicalis as a 1st/2nd Line support engineer. He had such a broad knowledge of the client he was able to provide me with a full and informative breakdown of the role and what was involved. During the interview stage, he still was able to give advice on each and every stage very clearly.

I felt comfortable working with Steve, he had been working with his client for a while and this had shown in his work. He was on-hand to answer to any questions and kept me updated every stage of the interview process very efficiently.

I would recommend anyone looking for a role in IT to speak to Steve as he could potentially open up the door to a successful career for anyone.

Howell Jenkins – ITIL Implementation Analyst

My thanks to Steve for placing me at Aegis Media. It is very refreshing to work with a true professional who balances the commitment to both candidate and client with equal importance. His attention to detail coupled with a professional approach proved to be a breath of fresh air. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve as a true professional who knows his market and understands the needs of both candidate and client and works tirelessly to satisfy both.

Anthon Gerber – Programme Manager

Great working with Damia. Personal touch and attention.

Richard Whetton – Application Architect

Terri was on the case from the word go, she gave me a useful insight into CGI as a company to work for, from her previous experience working there, when it was Logica, she kept me regularly informed via emails and telephone calls
Terri provided me with sound advice, when it came to decision time.
All that stops me from giving a gloving rating all round is that I compare Damia to other agencies that I have worked with for years. I have had some real ups and downs during my time as a contractor, the combination of which builds some solid relationships with consultants and sorts good agencies and consultants from bad ones. Damia is a definite ‘up’.
I repeat the comment that I like the personal touch. With some agencies, talking to your consultant feels like talking to a utility company: you’re just a name in a database. Talking to Natalie or her colleagues feels like I’m talking to people I know. It’s very refreshing and reassuring.

Duncan Smart – Recruitment Manager

My experience of working with Nathan and the team was exceptional. From the initial first contact through to arranging the interview and then issuing the contract everything has happened very quickly (and with a smile). The on-going in role support has been great (regular contact by phone/email/in person) with the team being incredibly helpful and efficient. As a candidate I couldn’t ask for a better or easier experience, highly recommended!

Ganganna Rayapati – Java Developer

I am happy with services provided by Damia Group and when I compare with other Agencies with whom worked, a lot better in giving response and process Damia Group following.
I am very much happy to recommend Damia Group, I already referred some of my friends previously.

Godfrey Shin – Technical Analyst

I worked with DamiaGroup and the main difference between Damia and other agencies in my experience is that they treat you more like a family member one big DamiaGroup family, they are always willing to be flexible to suit their employee, also there is continuity if you are out of contract they make it their personal business to place you in another role like they did with me and keep you updated always.
This is my 1st hand personal experience and I have worked with a few agencies over the years.
Nathan, Nathalie and Allie once again I want to say big thanks from Godfrey.

Alex Stanley – Project Manager

Kate, Lucy and Allie have been some of the nicest people I have worked with at an Agency, so thank you to all for everything over the last few months.
