  • I've been working for Athena and Denise for just over a year now. I had a full time job but need extra income and was told about Athena, sign up was hassle freeand Denise herself was very welcoming, I have always had plenty of notice for work available and the best rates that I know of. The extra work and earnings have helped me so much, Athena even helped me find me a new full time job, much better for my home and work life balance. I owe a lot to Athena and for that I will be forever thankful.

I really got the sense that each individual matters to them. I would definitely recommend them and apply through them in the future.

    Shortly after applying I was contacted by Denise.  I found her to be very professional.  She explained the role I was applying for, sent through the job description and arranged an interview at a time that was convenient to me.  

    I was successful in getting the job and am extremely grateful for all the help that Denise gave me.

    Stephanie - Healthcare Client

  • Just like to say what an amazing job Athena Recruiting Services Ltd has done for me.

    I was given a list of Agencies by my adviser at the jobcentre to contact, I contacted nearly all of them and all of them besides Athena were either dismissive or not interested in helping me find the work I was looking for.

    As soon as I rang Athena, Jordan was very kind to not only try and help me find the work I was looking for, he did it all in a timely fashion.

    He always kept me up to date with how things were going with my situation and how I am doing and after seeing Jordan for the first time a few weeks a go I will be doing my training within a few weeks as a support worker. I couldn't have asked for anything more, because without Athena I would still be looking for work and not knowing how best to find the right place for the training I needed. I would recommend Athena to anyone who is looking for a new career path and want it done in a kind and timely fashion. If i ever need any help with work again I will be going to Athena again.

    Thanks again Jordan


  • Well where do I start....

    I started speaking to Denise late 2014, when I was currently Head chef at the White Hart hotel in Witham. We kept in regular contact having general conversations about what work she had if I was to come on board with her company, also I'd send her a few of my dishes about what I was doing weekly.

    The more we spoke the more I was interested in coming on board, the way she does business and treats her staff is fantastic and couldn't ask for anything more from an employer.

    It is now November 2016 I have been working for her now for two weeks, and she has already found me a full time position at a dream hotel in my eyes and potentially a massive stepping stone for my career as a chef.

    Thank you to Denise and everyone at Athena Recruiting Services Ltd for looking after me and making me a part of their business.
