“Great service. Really takes the time to understand the business and comes up with great candidates every time. We will be using Qui Recruitment to partner with Simpson Judge Ltd and help us with our exciting growth plans moving forward.”
–Rob Simpson

Lysha spoke at our September Inspire Recruitment event and gave a very engaging presentation to the audience. It was a delight to work with Lysha both before and during the event – she has so much positive energy. I’d be very happy to recommend Lysha to speak at future events.

What can I say about Lysha? In my opinion she is the most professional, understanding, patient and knowledgeable person within her field. She takes the time to understand not just your skills and experience but also your drivers, to effectively match yours and the client’s requirements. She is not afraid of delivering developmental feedback, which she does so in a positive manner. If the initial match is not successful she will use her developed network and understanding of her clients to find that option that you might not have initially considered. Highly recommend Lysha to anyone looking for a new opportunity.

  Ian Grant
Divisional Lead – Informatics, Digital & Technology

Lysha is a really friendly, helpful Rec2rec with an outstanding market knowledge. She listened to exactly what was important to me and found me a great role. I’m so grateful to her.

Isobel Smith
Talent Consultant | IT Sales | IT Technical | Security Recruitment Company of the Year | We’re hiring!

What was great about Lysha was from the first meet, she had a clear understanding of what I wanted and I knew there would be no bullshit or pushiness (if that’s a word) . Lysha only know’s how to be honest and sincere, no bullshit – If you are looking for someone who can;

1) Quickly identify some moves that would be great for you

2) Give you a completely honest and open process

3) Actually get the job done

Lysha is well worth having a chat with : )


Jamie Gilson
Director & MS Dynamics 365 Specialist Recruiter at Adapt Executives

Lysha knows her markets and candidates inside out. As a legal recruitment business owner it’s not easy to find experienced legal recruiters. Lysha got to grips with us, our business and culture straight away and put forward one strong candidate almost immediately who was perfect in terms of experience and personality fit and who I am proud to say is now part of our business. She is professional, practical and keeps in touch throughout the process and has what I’d call a ‘no-nonsense’ approach. Next time we are recruiting I will go straight to Lysha and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her and Qui Recruitment.

Karen Siddall
Co-Founder & Legal Recruiter *UK & International*

Lysha was recommended to me by a former colleague she had placed twice in the past. From the first phone call to meeting her 24 hours later, I had the confidence that Lysha could deliver a number of options to me having discussed what it was that I was ideally looking for from my next employer. Lysha presented a number of options to me and within a couple of days she had interviews lined up. Within 2 weeks I was being offered an excellent opportunity and this was down to her persistence with the client and her reputation within the industry. To anyone looking for a rec to rec I would highly recommend them to contact Lysha who I’m confident would give them the best options for their next career move.

Scott Atkinson
Consultant at Focus Management Consultants

Lysha called me at a time when I really wasnt looking to move however she presented her client in such a way that I though had had to explore the opportunity further and I am glad that I did. 

The whole process was managed very professionally with excellent communication and support throughout. 

If you are a Recruiter and want to find a top line Recruitment professional to discuss career opportunties with, then I can highly reccommend you speak with Lysha.

Daniel McClennan
Divisional Manager – Elderly and Dementia UK Care & Healthcare Specialists

After leaving my last company where I had worked for 9 years, Lysha Holmes came highly recommended by a friend when it came to the time for me to find my next role. After meeting with Lysha, she took the time to understand my aspirations and motivation and made a couple of recommendations. 

I found Lysha to be responsive, professional, and a true advisor, giving her opinion on what would be best suited to me. 

If you are looking for a rec2rec who can give you a true picture of the market, I’d have no hesitation recommending Lysha.


Sakir Mahmud
Recruiting Contracts & Procurement professionals across multiple sectors

Lysha throughout the recruitment process was fantastic and supportive. Having took a strong interest in getting to know me and exactly what my requirements were, the process was very efficient and effortless. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to hire to speak with Lysha.

Jamie Boneham

Lysha was absolutely first class from the moment I spoke to her, I was looking for a new career and I can’t think of anybody better to help me get started. She was open, honest, approachable and dealt with me on a very personable level which was great. I have now started my new career in recruitment and Lysha played a massive part in finding out exactly what I wanted and then taking ownership and working to get me exactly what I wanted. The biggest compliment I could pay her is that straight away from our very first contact I was learning from her and then through out the whole process, and the way she expertly helped me is something I am taking forward myself to put in to practice. Thank you Lysha 🙂

Glenn Johnson
Recruitment Consultant at Servoca Nursing and Care

Lysha, is a brilliant “rec 2 rec” really supportive and gave me great advise. I would recommend her to any of my friends looking for a new role.

Jodie Stott
Recruitment Manager MDT & Clinical

All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!

Lysha was absolutely instrumental in securing my current role. She is a breath of fresh air. A lady who really knows her industry and takes the time to know her candidates.

Lysha listened to my needs then put a plan of action together to find me my ideal position – and she didn’t disappoint!! I highly recommend her to work on your behalf – whether you are a client or candidate.

Thank you again Lysha for your hard work and the chocolates that I received from you was a lovely touch. COCOA CABANA CHOCOLATES ARE THE BEST xxx


Debbie Harris

I had been connected with Lysha on LinkedIn for a while, and was always really impressed with the way in which she conducted her work. When I found myself seeking a new role within recruitment, she immediately came to mind. Lysha really cares about her candidates, and is determined to find a role that completely suits their needs. Lysha set up interviews for me with three outstanding companies within a day of meeting with her, and I’m extremely happy with my new role. I would recommend Lysha to any recruiters who aren’t satisfied in their current role.

Will Velios
Helping businesses streamline their food safety/health and safety procedures.

Lysha provided me with a superb level of service in what can always be the minefield of looking for a new recruitment role. Lysha’s knowledge of the market was impressive and we were able to really work together to ascertain exactly what I was looking for. She was available at all times to speak with and updated me regularly on the progress we were making, without ever becoming over the top.

After finding a role for me she has been in regular contact, even coming to the office to see how things were getting on.

I guess all in all you were a breath of fresh air in an industry that can tend to really over-complicate the process of finding the right companies for the right people. Currently writing this after 4.5 months in my new company, with last months pay check being one of the largest I have ever had within recruitment. You have also been able to give me what was most important, a degree of work life balance, for which the rest of family are also thankful.

Many thanks for your help!

Kind Regards

Lysha has helped Fourthline identify 4 key hires this year. I value the network she has established, and her ability to identify high performing professional recruitment consultants. Growing a recruitment firm has its challenges but our growth prospects improve with Lysha on board as a partner to Fourthline.

Kieran Maplesden

Lysha really understood my circumstances and presented me to a number of quality clients who I would have loved to work for. Ultimately, we had to sit down and think carefully about my motives for moving and am now working 10 minutes from my home and looking forward to the lighter nights so we can walk up the rake for a glass of wine. Thanks Lysha

Katy Godfrey
Resourcing Partner at Chase de Vere – We are recruiting!!

Having worked with a few Rec to Rec business it becomes very clear that some really understand the market, and what you are looking for from a candidate, and some just forward CVs of any recruiter in the area. As Lysha has been in the market for as long as she has and took the time to come to the office to meet us, she really understands what we’re trying to achieve at Simpson Judge and the type of candidate that will fit in and do well. Lysha has also built a huge network within the recruitment industry so she has access to a much wide range of recruiters that her competitors. As well as this, she has the industry knowledge to advise us on what salary, benefits and commission packages we need to offer to attract the best candidates in the market.

Ben James
Director at Simpson Judge Ltd

I worked with Lysha when she very first started her career within recruitment. It became apparent very quickly, that she was a force to be reckoned with! We worked together in the highly successful “dream team” Technical Recruitment division within Primetime. The speed and accuracy of her work, was breath taking. I could see from very early days, that she had a special talent for recruitment. She has gone from strength to strength, enjoying tremendous success. Lysha really is a superb recruiter, someone very special.

Lysha played a key part in helping me search and decide on a new role in Manchester. I’d simply say – she does things right and is an amazing person, that will help/guide you towards the best path for you! I have learnt a lot from her, which I hope to take into my new role. She is friendly, consultative and knowledgeable – get in touch with her if you’re looking / interested, you will not be disappointed..

Max Harris-Green

I can’t begin to fully explain how appreciative I am for Lysha’s assistance in finding a new role for me. She is professional down to the last detail, but also incredibly caring in her approach, carefully listening to my situation and perfectly matching my skillset to perfect opportunities. I would and will be personally recommending her to any recruiters who I know are looking for a change in role and I couldn’t be happier in my new position as Digital Recruitment Consultant at Adam Recruitment!

Helena Nicholson (AIRP)

Lysha was excellent! She was honest and straight forward. Quick with feedback and worked hard to find the type of business that I wanted to join.
Colin Shaw
FourthLine – Advisory Services

I have used Qui recruitment to gain my last two roles. the first one I was in just under four years and I have just joined my current company. Lysha was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. She listened to what I did and didn’t want and really took that into account when recommending potential companies. I won’t use another rec2rec as long as she’s around and can’t rate her highly enough. This chocolates on my first day helped too!

Jenny Vickerstaff (Legal Recruiter)

Recruitment Consultant at Gibson Hollyhomes


I’ve worked with Lysha for a number of years and she has been excellent. Lysha understands the business and its culture which means she is a true strategic partner and an extension of our brand. I would highly recommend Lysha to others.

Thomas Brandrick

Director at Domus Recruitment and Brandrick Search


Lysha does as she says, she’s straight forward and I trust her judgement. She knows my business and understands what we need from anyone coming in. If you need a reliable, quality orientated Rec2Rec then look no further.

Samuel Smith

Founder / Director – Nixor Resource Consulting

Loyal, trustworthy and gets to know the business she is recruiting for. Lysha has found me 2 great candidates and I recommend anyone looking to hire at any level to get in touch. 

Angela Byrne, Managing Director  – Ginger Recruitment

Lysha was as ‘to the point’ and effective as this recommendation. She acted quickly, professionally and found something that fit perfectly both in terms of personality and career aspirations. Would definitely recommend her to friends or colleagues in the same way she was recommended to me.

Samuel Johnson Solutions Manager (Digital Marketing) at Interpro People

An exceptional recruitment professional who is passionate about the service she delivers to both her candidates and her clients; loyal and supportive, it is her integrity is what sets her apart from most in her field. A pleasure to work.

“Great service. Really takes the time to understand the business and comes up with great candidates every time. We will be using Qui Recruitment to partner with Simpson Judge Ltd and help us with our exciting growth plans moving forward.
–Rob Simpson
Director at Simpson Judge Ltd – Accountancy & Finance Recruitment

“I’ve known Lysha for a few years and working with her to find my next step forward within Recruitment was an absolute pleasure. She took the time to meet me and thoroughly understand my motivations and plans for the future and she carefully put together a shortlist of target firms, with which she enjoys very strong relationships, for me to have a look in to. After selecting the ones of interest, I was amazed with the speed at which she was able to present me to the firms and successfully secure interviews for me. Her knowledge of the businesses and the key figures within them was of the highest standard and her pre-interview preparation was excellent. Suffice to say, I am delighted with the service she offered and I would wholeheartedly recommend any good, motivated Recruiter, interested in exploring the market, to contact her and trust her exclusively to help source that next move. There are tons of awful R2R’s out there, don’t waste your time, just go straight to Lysha!
–Chris Hinchey
Recruitment Consultant at PSD Group

“Lysha at Qui Recruitment is the type of rec to rec consultant you wish to always find when looking for a new position. Professional, resourceful, efficient, full of ideas and valuable advise and more than anything honest, open and friendly. Attributes difficult to find in a more established market, but almost impossible to find here in Lancashire. She is a highly professional and impressive consultant who I have had the pleasure of working with recently who was continuously supportive and helpful throughout the entire recruitment process. I would highly recommend Lysha and her services to both candidates looking for a new role in recruitment and clients seeking experienced, credible staff. In my 12 years in recruitment it is refreshing to meet people like Lysha who still have a passion for doing the job properly and professionally and are clearly extremely good at what they do.
–Vanessa Mason
Commercial Manager at Ginger Recruitment Services Ltd

“If you want to find the right fit of company within recruitment, Lysha is fantastic. She gets a real feel for you, what you’d enjoy as a professional environment and what you’re looking for in your new job. She then makes sure to get you in front of the right people, and prepares you with everything you need to know. If you want someone who knows and understands the industry, then Lysha is the girl to go to.
–Charlotte Browne
Recruitment Consultant – Rigid Plastics and Capital Equipment for UK & Europe – Key Recruitment

“Lysha has a very unique and refreshing approach to the recruitment process and her passion for both her clients’ and candidates’ needs is evident throughout every step of the process. Lysha took time to meet with me in order to understand what was important and what I was looking for. She only ever discussed relevant opportunities with me. Throughout the whole process she kept me fully informed and was there to offer any support that I needed. I have no hesitation in recommending Lysha to anyone that is looking for a new opportunity.
–Lucy Ketley
Executive Search Consultant

“Lysha is one of a kind! A talented, driven and passionate individual, who possesses a wealth of experience within the recruitment industry. Lysha has played an important role throughout my career, as an inspirational manager, a knowledgeable peer, friend, and latterly a mentor. Not only can she offer excellent advice and trustworthy support, she does so with passion and genuine care. I regard Lysha as not only a well deserved leader within the R2R marketplace, but as a fabulous example of the modern day working mum! Superb recruiter, superb business owner, superb mum!
–Fiona Brookes
Recruitment Strategy, Advisor & Business Partner

“In the ultra competitive and cut-throat world of rec 2 rec, Lysha sticks to her principles and does not adopt the usual pushy or underhand tactics that are, unfortunately, so common in our industry.

I met Lysha many years ago when I was looking for a new opportunity. Lysha took the time to understand what I valued in an employer and quickly matched me with a number of companies who met my criteria, which resulted in me receiving several job offers.

I kept in touch with Lysha and she has helped since, as both an employee and employer. I would, and have, recommended Lysha and QUI Recruitment to both clients and candidates alike.
–Vincent Stevenson
Director at Connected IT Recruitment

“I would highly recommend Lysha. As someone who was looking to get into recruitment, she was very helpful and informative about the available routes and potential opportunities which would be a good fit. She provided constant support and was a pleasure to work with. I have no doubt that what ever level you’re at, Lysha could provide a service of the highest class to support you in your search for a new role.
–Luke Taylor
IT Recruiter at Omni Resource Management Solutions (Omni RMS)

“Lysha is one of a kind in recruitment and helped me get the best role with the best company I have ever worked for! She is very grounded, personable, dedicated, hard working, professional and above all has a great personality. Lysha is a true professional and a fantastic recruiter/manager that forms great relationships by invests the time in getting to know everyone she works with so that she can provide them with the best options. I would definitely recommend Lysha to anyone in the industry!
–Del Jones
Recruitment Consultant – Hospitality & Leisure at Berkeley Scott

“I wouldn’t think twice about recommending Lysha. She was consultative, professional and warm from our first meeting, taking time to understand what I was looking for and also supporting me during my search. I really appreciated how Lysha put options in front of me and then stood back and let me make my own decision. Not only is Lysha great at what she does, I genuinely enjoyed working with her.
–Sarah Leask
Senior Agency Recruitment Consultant (on Maternity Leave) at The Candidate

“I was introduced to Lysha via a recommendation from another Consultant, who had nothing but positive things to say about Lysha’s services. I was eager to leave a negative working environment, but hesitant about using the services of a Rec 2 Rec. After meeting Lysha, she immediately put me at ease and was extremely professional and helpful. Qui Recruitment wont spec your CV out to dozens of agencies like some Rec to Rec’s do. Lysha is very consultative in her approach to finding you your next role, ensuring that the companies she introduces you to are a good fit, for your experience and personality!

I would highly recommend any recruitment consultant who is looking for their next role, to go to Lysha as their first port of call.
–Eleanor Carroll (AIRP)
Senior Consultant at Connected IT Recruitment

“I would like to recommend Lysha Holmes as a truly great Recruiter. Lysha listened to me, challenged me and through the recruitment process – matched my needs and expectations in my new Role with Employment Solutions. What was enjoyable is that Lysha really gets to know you and made me feel like I had a genuine recruitment partner in my “pursuit of happiness”.
It is commonly said but not often meant – I would recommend Lysha as the person to go to if you’re thinking of moving within the Recruitment Industry. A pleasure to deal with and so is the Ramsbottom Craft Brew that is kindly received as well!!
–David Pundick
Engineering Recruitment Consultant at Employment Solutions Limited – Civil, Structural & Building Services

“I have no hesitation in recomending Lysha and believe her to be the best Rec2Rec consultant I’ve met in 20 years working in recruitment. Lysha acts with total professionalism, transparency and integrity; someone who you can trust to truly act on your behalf.
–Craig Ruff
Resourcing Manager at Bilfinger Industrial Services (UK) Limited

“Lysha proved to be an excellent consultant during my recent career change. I was unable to provide a clear brief as I didn’t know if a role matching my aspirations existed, or where to look. Lysha listened attentively, provided sound and very welcome advice, then introduced me to two highly relevant companies which hadn’t been on my radar; one of which I have now happily joined. She’s on the ball, highly efficient and refreshingly targeted in her approach. I certainly recommend her service.
–Helen Coult
Global Client Partner at Armstrong Craven

“I’ve known Lysha for over a year and would without a doubt recommend her to other people who are considering a move. I spoke to Lysha and she took the time to come and meet me near work and really got to understand what I was looking for. She kept in touch with me over the next couple of months as my requirements were very specific and when the right thing came along, she was the first person to call me. Lysha is a proactive recruiter who will find you an opportunity rather than send you to every live role she has on her books and this is what I like about her. Thanks for all the help!
–Felicity Robertson
Internal Recruiter looking to speak with outstanding Recruiters in Edinburgh, London and Manchester!

“I met Lysha totally by chance about 3 months ago, after a very informal meeting which resulted in her finding out my “wish list” I left feeling hopeful but like with anything that seems too good to be true… Within a few day she had selected a few of her clients which she was to introduce me to giving me time to research and think before speaking with them. As my work schedule was hectic she worked with me to arrange meetings around my rota without stress or pressure. I am happy to say that from a very extensive wish list Lysha found me my role with beResources which just happened to tick off all the things I had mentioned.
It’s not very often Rec2Rec’s get you but Lysha really does. I would recommend Lysha to anyone who is thinking to move from their current role alternatively to someone who is starting out.
–Khrystina Keyworth-Jubb

“Lysha has an exceptional and rare ability to translate her personal attributes, values and principles into her professional work resulting in an outstanding service. Whether as a recruiter or a career coach I have always found Lysha’s approach to be knowledgable, empathetic, starightforward and honest. Her commitment to building ‘true’ relationships enables Lysha to understand her client’s on another level ensuring her solutions and advice are invariably the right ones for all concerned.
–Stephen Rossiter
First Managed Services – Operational Management & Specialist Senior & Executive Appointments

“I was introduced to Lysha and Qui recruitment by a colleague who has worked with Lysha prior to Finegreen.
As a small specialist recruitment business we understand that our team are our key assets. We are a highly driven organisation who believe in and live our values and ethics. It is important our staff believe the same.
Lysha really understands our culture and she is able to efficiently represent our business. She is proactive, always making us aware of candidates who are looking for a career change who potentially would be a good fit for us. This is reassuring for our business. She acts as an ambassador and we view her as a partner to our business.
–Shirley McIntosh
HR & Quality Manager at Finegreen Associates

“I’ve known Lysha professionally for around 10 years now in various guises.
The first thing that strikes you about her, is her warm and friendly personality.
The second has to be her integrity, knowledge and wealth of market knowledge and experience.
She clearly understands all aspects of people, and the market that she works in, and it is with pleasure that I give this recommendation.
No matter how you engage with her, as a candidate, client or coach, she is guaranteed to make, not only a positive impact on your life, but also a long last impression making you want to strike a long term relationship with her.
She’s highly recommended!
–Jonathan Jones
HR Business Partner

“Lysha has listened to actually what I was looking for as a Manager and has now provided me we two of my current team over the last year. Her approach was straightforward, honest and tenacious. Both recruits are doing well. Thanks for all your help.
–Rob Dermott
Associate Director, Managing PSD Customer Contact & UK Customer Experience Awards 2015 Judge

“Lysha is an extremely professional recruiter that I have built a professional relationship with over a number of years. I have received sound career advice on a number of occasions and she has most recently found me the opportunity with PSD. If you are looking to work with a recruiter that can offer genuine unbiased advice as a true consultant in the R2R industry then I would not hesitate recommending Lysha.
–Alex Kelly
Recruitment Consultant, Customer Contact, Transformation and Resource Planning

“I liaised with Lysha recently when looking for a new role, whilst Lysha didn’t place me in my current role, I would have no hesitation in endorsing Lysha. My experience of rec2rec recruiters has been tainted in the past & Lysha changed this, should I be looking for staff or want an insight into how the market is, I would speak to Lysha straight away. She is incredibly knowledgeable and works with an extremely high level of both integrity and professionalism. Lysha is most definitely an expert in her field and more importantly, a genuinely nice person to work with.
–LeighAnne Jordan
Principal Consultant at Hudson HR

“I have recently used Lysha and Qui Recruitment to help in the expansion of my team. The service I have received has been excellent – quick, professional and consultative. This exercise resulted in two successful hires who have absolutely excelled themselves in the short time they’ve been here, as such raising the standard and performance of an already successful team. I cannot recommend Lysha enough, I know I can rely on her to deliver, which we all know in this business is key.
–Sarah Doyle
Account Manager at Experis UK & Ireland

“Myself and Lysha went through a fantastic journey together. She got to know me, my values and found me the perfect company to suit the route I wanted to take into my career as a Recruitment consultant.
Lysha is a true professional and gave honest, constructive feedback that helped me develop throughout. I would highly recommend Lysha (Qui Recruitment) for anyone looking to move into recruitment for the first time or looking for a new recruitment role.
–Terri Walker- Assoc CIPD
Recruitment Consultant at Judd Farris – Technical desk- Building Surveyors, Quantity Surveyors & Project Managers (RICS)

“The only r2r I would recommend and trust. Proven track record of delivery within the sector. Feedback from clients referred to also extremely positive.
–Chris Dutton

“Lysha was amazing! very professional, friendly and genuine and above all reliable with information and advice. It was a pleasure working with her. Whilst I went in a different direction I would recommend Lysha to anyone I met who was considering recruitment as a career path. Many thanks Lysha,–Ross Gylanders
Marketing & Pr Executive at Thorns Group

“Lysha provided me with a great opportunity and took the time to find out what I wanted from a career. We spoke regularly throughout the process and at all stages she was thorough and highly professional.
–Arun Dey
Senior Management Healthcare Recruiter, specialising in Marketing, Communications & HR at Finegreen associates

“I selectively chose Lysha to represent me in the market when seeking a new opportunity, based on the fact she has a trusted reputation within the Recruitment Industry. I believe this is down to having an open and honest relationship with both Client & Candidate, confirming billings and positive references before agreeing to work together. I felt she listened to my requirements and really understood my needs.
–Emma Rawlinson
Director // Mode Resourcing // Retail Recruitment

“Lysha worked with professionalism and integrity to find me a new role as a recruiter, providing a considered and consultative approach and raised the benchmark for rec to rec recruiters everywhere. I would highly recommend their service and Qui Recruitment for anyone looking to move in recruitment.
–Edward Collins
Senior Consultant at Macdonald & Company

“The true making of any rec2rec is not by the number of positions they can put forward to you as a candidate, but the number of suitable positions they can get you interviews for.
Having had an in-depth conversation with Lysha (after an initial face2face with her colleague Joanne) a brief was taken and Lysha took a couple of hours to look over the roles she had which were suitable.
Rather than receive a list of companies which were as long as my arm, Lysha had picked only a handful which we went through on the phone in detail addressing not only any questions I had, but also how each of these opportunities matched what I was looking for.
When looking for a new position time is scarce, and whilst attending interviews as a whole can be a positive experience, attending interviews with companies which don’t offer what you are looking for is a waste of everyones time.
Thanks to Lysha, my time was managed wisely, and I only met with companies which matched my expectations, allowing to keep the fact I was looking for work to a low profile.
All in all, if you are looking for a rec2rec who not only understands her market, but is able to relate to you as a candidate and what you are looking for, I have no hesitation in suggesting you pick up the phone and give Lysha a call.
–Jonathan Isaacs
Contracts Manager, Aspiring Project Manager

“I first met Lysha as a candidate when she approached me about a role. I was impressed with her detailed methodology and retained her services at my new company.
In the maelstrom of R2R, Lysha bucks the quotidian by actually listening and matching personalities for a business rather than trawling job-boards.
I met her candidate, who was out of sector, on her recommendation and insistence. He was a good match for me and the business I was creating. He has now been with me for a few months and I whole heartedly endorse Lysha as she nailed it with this candidate.
–Paul Simpson
Operations Business Partner at Bureau Veritas

“Lysha made such an effort in helping me find my ideal role & made the whole process seamless! She managed to turn things around for me in a really short space of time, placing me at a fantastic agency just before Christmas! I would happily recommend Lysha’s services to anybody and will do just that!
–Dina Gregoire
Talent Executive at Code Computerlove

“I approached Lysha in confidence and can honestly say with my hand on my heart that she is a brilliant Rec2Rec. Lysha met with me on the same day that I called her and she made such an effort to find me exactly the right job for a company who weren’t actively looking to hire. I am so thankful of Lysh’s assistance and support and would advise any recruiter who may be looking to call her!
–Sophie Southam
Commercial Temp Recruitment Consultant at Foresight Recruitment Solutions

“Lysha came recommended to me via another colleague, I decided to meet although being quite sceptical of the general market of Rec 2 Rec’s.
Lysha is very attentive and works with you every step, at no point did Lysha ever try to push upon me anything I had not detailed or specified.
I would gladly use Qui again and would recommend anyone else looking for a change or to add to their team to consider Lysha’s services.
–Sean Ellis
Managing Director at Bishop

“Not much more to say about Lysha that has not already been said by countless recruiters who have recomended her services. She is a Fantastic Rec2Rec who goes above and beyond expectations.

–Ben Barnes
Consultant at PSD Group

“I would highly recommend Lysha to both Candidates and Clients who are either seeking a career change or looking to take on new staff! She was extremely helpful during my job search and took the time to listen to my requirements fully (unlike many other R2R I had spoken too!) and only approached clients who could offer me the development and progression I needed. Lysha is a true professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to come back to her in the future! Thank you for all your help Lysha!

–Lucy Richardson
Consultant at Northern Employment Services Ltd

“I would highly recommend Lysha if you are ever looking for move. I found Lysha to be very personable and professional. I felt that Lysha fully understood my needs and wasn’t just ‘in it for a fast buck!’
I know a few employers that say that they don’t normally use R2R’s but would only go to Qui Recruitment if they needed to! I fully understand why they say this!! Lysha is not only a talented recruiter, but a lovely, honest (not many left in the industry!) professional lady!
–Gaynor Greenhalgh
Business Development Consultant

“Lysha assisted me making an extremely important and critical career move. Working for myself and not applying to a position for over ten years, Lysha made the process simple and effective. Working in Recruitment myself, I was able to take my own advice but more importantly work with a professional that knew how to guide, instruct whilst never patronising or missing the brief. Many thanks Lysha.
–Frank Lomas
Consultant at Focus Management Consultants

“If you are looking for a move then Lysha is the person to speak to she is the best R2R I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with, Lysha listened to what I wanted to do and went out there and found me my ideal role @ JS3 recruitment, whether you are looking for a move or a client looking to hire pick up the phone to Lysha as you will not be disappointed.
–Barbara Suzanne Shaw
Senior Resourcing Specialist at JS3 Recruitment
[x-line] “Lysha is without a shadow of doubt the best rec to rec I have ever dealt with. She has many clients under her belt ranging from large global recruitment firms to the smaller consultancies, so will give you plenty of options to think about and has wealth of market knowledge so will give you the best advice and interview tips. But for me the key thing which stands Lysha out from all the other rec to rec’s out there, she actually understood my needs and drivers and where I want to go with my career, she is personable and is really passionate about making sure she places you in the right organisation which suits your career expectations but she will also make sure your personality fits into that environment. I have worked with Lysha twice now and both times she literally filled my diary with interviews at some truly fantastic organisations, she always kept me updated on the progress and gave me sound advice with each interview she got me, she seems to really know her clients. And when she does place you she doesn’t forget you, I have just had a beautiful box of handmade chocolates delivered to my desk from her, a nice personal touch (thanks hun). A true star and a lady I now class as friend.

“I came to Lysha when I was looking for the ‘next step’ in my career.
Lysha listened and understood what makes me tick and the elements that I enjoyed in my post as a Healthcare Recruitment Consultant and also understood the parts that I didn’t enjoy so much.
With the use of her amazing interpersonal skills she found me what I can only call my dream job working for The Apprentice Academy helping the young people of Manchester to kick start their career. She is an excellent recruiter and I have no hesitation in referring Lysha and her team to both clients and candidates…. Thank you Lysha and keep up the good work!

“Having known and dealt with Lysha for a numer of years I am yet to come across a better rec 2 rec Consultant on the market. She always takes the time to understand your needs and tailors her service accordingly. I would highly recommend her to any recruiters out there as long as she saves the best candidates for us!
–Neil Fineberg

“Lysha is one of the best rec to rec consultants I have worked with, she took the time to really understand our business and culture and has provided us with exceptional candidates, all of which went straight to interview. She has never wasted our time, nor does she rely on mailshotting CVs, when a CV comes from Lysha, we read it immediately. We dont recruit your typical recruiters and Lysha has been able to identify the perfect consultants for our growing team and has provided excellent advice along the way. She is an absolute gem.–Stacey McNeil

Highly business focused with a natural ability to listen to what you are looking for, provide solutions whilst at the same time think outside of your remit and offer excellent alternatives. I would highly recommend her and her company.
–Nikki Atkinson

“My experience of working with Lysha has been memorable. She is an articulate and personable woman who is creative, punctual, flexible and very easy to engage with as she is such a down to earth person. She clearly has a real passion for her job and takes pride in her work every step of the way. Having been introduced to her through a work colleague, it is more apparent to me from our dealings how recruitment should actually be done. She was very quick to understand my needs, manage my expectations and knew where my next career path lay, before I actually did. I have no problem recommending any individual to work with Lysha as I know that no matter what you need, she will be there to help. Thanks to Lysha I now have a strong and successful career path ahead of me with Genesis Associates. She is a real credit to the recruitment industry.

Lysha has the knowledge and experience along with the resourcefulness to identify good quality candidates. She doesn’t flood you with CV’s just people she believes can add value and fit your culture. Overall she is honest, hardworking and determined to succeed
–Howard Marshall

“Lysha was recommended to me by a trusted source and I’m very glad she was. After almost 8 years with my last employer the decision to move on was a difficult one and making the right move was hugely important to me. From my first point of contact with Lysha she was brilliant, a true consultant. She understood my situation and went above and beyond to support me in securing my new role. Excellent advice on the market and a great number of options however she knew from the beginning which company would be best for me and after my first interview with that company I completely agreed with her. I’m now in that role and really enjoying being a part of the team and sector. I can’t thank her enough and would definitely recommend her to anyone.
–Lynda Brown
Senior Consultant at NJR Recruitment – Currently on maternity leave

“Lysha has an unrivalled knowledge of the Rec to Rec market and a high integrity approach. During our time working together she has always been 100% honest regarding the opportunities open to me and has never put me in a situation where I was less than comfortable. She is approachable and friendly but also intensely loyal when chasing feedback and information on your behalf. She has also kept her own chin and my chin up after a dissapointing near miss with an organisation who I had great interest in working with. I would recommend Lysha and her expertise to any Recruitment organisation or Recruiter looking to move within the market.
–Simon Kealy
Business Manager – Public Sector South at Badenoch & Clark UK

“I would absolutely, totally and utterly recommend Lysha to both clients and candidates alike. I have known her for years, she recruited my best people, and most recently I have experienced her professionalism and intuitive knowledge of her client and candidate requirements on the other end of the spectrum as a candidate.
Totally committed to excellence service, always keeping me up to date with progress and working tirelessly to reach a position which works for all parties concerned.
Thanks Lysha!

–Bev Ross

“Lysha found me a Senior role with Venturi. As a ‘rec to rec’ consultant Lysha sets herself above others by taking the time to really understand what it is that you are looking for and then actually acting on that information. So many ‘rec to recs’ act with only their interests and fee in mind, but Lysha seems to truly understand what it is you’re looking for and present only suitable options.
I have no hesitation in recommending Lysha!
–Chris McCarthy
Head of Digital + IT Recruitment at Adam

“Lysha has recently helped us with some external recruitment. Lysha and her team provided us with an excellent service and I would highly recommend her.
–Brad Lamb

“Lysha found me my job at IHS-SSC recruitment.
She is a pleasure to work with and understands your requirements and motivators to enable a perfect ‘fit’ within a company.
–Nicola Davies

“Lysha is incredibly personable and very knowledgeable about the recruitment market; particularly in the North West. She has developed a good understanding of our business and has found some great people for us. All candidates are thoroughly briefed and she provides us with a good level of detail when submitting CVs.
–Jane Cotterill
HR Director

“I have worked with many rec2recs over the last few years and have to say Lysha stands out as one of the very best.
Lysha takes the time to come and meet with you and listens very carefully to your requirements. I knew at the end of the meeting that Lysha was going to put everything she talked about in to action which gave me a confidence that I do not often get from other rec2recs.
Very honest in her approach, great communicator and overall a first class rec2rec service. I would have no hesitation recommending her to recruitment companies looking to hire or consultants looking for their next challenge.
–David Wilson
Executive Search Consultant at 6 Group

“I first worked with Lysha during my time at Capita. She recruited for my team. At that time she was professional, trustworthy and most importantly not pushy, she was more interested in listening and finding the right fit, not just a “bum on a seat”. This is rare to find in a recruiter and is a quality I find hard to find. From a candidate point of view she is the same, interested in what I want, type of role and not pushing me into any. I am looking forward for my business to grow so I can recruit some staff from Lysha as I know the candidates will be excellent and the service too.
Belinda Roberts 07875 673652

“Having known Lysha for a number of years, from the other side of the desk, as a client, she was my first port of call when looking for a new role. Not only did I ask her to find me a role within a specific niche sector, but presented her with the unenviable task of finding me a part time role. Not at all phased by this request, Lysha took time to challenge and educate Recruiters that there was an immense amount of untapped talent out there in the form of working Mums. She has secured me a fantastic role with a great business! She kept me fully up to date at all times with a truly personal service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lysha to any recruiter looking to make their next move or in fact to any recruitment business looking to find new talent.
–Justine McKenna
Corporate Affairs at AG Barr

“Lysha has an innovative & refreshing approach to her business and I have been hugely impressed by her understanding of both my needs and those of her Clients. She has an uncanny ability to match the two together and instinctively knows when a rapport will be established.

–Brunella Flackett

Lysha is very knowledgeable about the industry, extremely hard working, has some great relationships and always available for updates. I highly recommend Lysha to any Consultant, Manager or Director looking to move on in their career.
–Paul Scott

“Lysha was and is an excellent recruiter with high integrity. I’m not suprised that she has gone on to build a successful recruitment business. Lysha is one of those rare consultants that understands that the deal has to right for ALL parties. The client, the candidate and of course the consultant. Very willing to give her time and invest effort in to building real partnerships. Message me if you want a more personal reference. I’d be glad to give it!

–Emma Neary

–Phil Pattison

“Lysha is a thoroughly professional recruitment consultant who operates in a highly ethical and diligent manner. My dealings with her as both a candidate and a client have been exemplary and I would highly recommend her to both clients looking to hire as well as recruiters looking for a new challenge.
–Paul Riordan
Business Director, Retail at Hays,/b>
“Lysha has now placed me in my last 2 roles, and her approach was excellent in both instances. She is the most professional ‘rec to rec’ consultant I have worked with, she listens to your needs and then matches those to her client profiles, rather than trying a scattered approach and sending you to places that you don’t want to go/don’t match.
Hopefully I won’t be looking for a job again soon, so I won’t require Lysha’s assistance but if that time arose again I would not hesitate to contact her. She is direct, effective, informative and trustworthy and knows her clients/candidates inside out.
–Julia Brock
Manager – Sales & Marketing at Morgan McKinley

“I have known Lysha a long time – and very nearly placed her at one point!! She is bright, enthusiastic, professional and passionate about what she does. She can be trusted implicitly and I would have no reservations about recommending her – despite her being a competitor! She is knowledgeable about the industry and honest with her clients and candidates. I also have no issues working alongside her on assignments as she is 100% trustworthy.

–Chris Dunn

“It’s always a pleasure to work with Lysha, as she’s extremely personable, genuine and brilliant at her job! She has always sent me highly relevant, fully briefed, quality candidates and as a result many of my best recruits have been introduced by Lysha. She really cares about her clients and candidates and is determined to get the match right for both parties, now and for the long-term. Develops strong business relationships, as she is trusted and honours her promises. Highly recommended!
–Rachel Cross

“I have used Lysha’s services for recruiting to my teams on more than one occasion and have always received first class advice, service and qaulity of candidates from her.
–Mark Noakes
Managing Director at Integritas Resourcing Ltd

“When looking for my next step within the Recruitment industry, it was recommended by a colleague that I get in touch with Lysha. Suffice to say, it was an excellent recommendation. The first thing I noticed about Lysha was her detailed approach in finding out about my background and then what it is that I wanted, as opposed to the often aggressive approach of being ‘shoe-horned’ into interviews that don’t quite fit the bill.
We met face to face and not only did I find her punctual and professional but also extremely personable and fun to be around by nature. Although I found my next role through a friend of mine, Lysha gave me some great options and still to this day, she gets in touch now and again for a chat and to see how things are.
Overall, I highly recommend Lysha as a recruiter and person and will no doubt stay in touch with her throughout my recruitment career.

Lysha has an aptitude for the industry and her market knowledge in the North West is second to none due to the relationships she has with both her candidates and her clients. Lysha is a trustworthy recruiter who listens to both the candidate and client needs, accurately matching them together.
