  • A pleasure to work with Denise, she helped us on the road to making life easier once again.
    I am suitably impressed by both Denise`s efficient service and the work of Lucas.

    Director – Hospitality


    Director- Hospitality- Suffolk

  • I applied for an Administrator role online with Athena.

    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.

     I would highly recommend Athena's services.

  • Since using Athena we have built up a fantastic relationship with members of their team. Their office staff are always very helpful and willing to help cover shifts!

    The staff I have used for Harlow have been reliable and all have a good work ethic! They always find time to call us back and update us on their progress!


    It is always a pleasure receiving a phonecall from the Athena team



    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.

    Senior Sous

  • After hearing great recommendations about Athena I decided to get in contact with Denise, from the first phone call to completing my first day working for the company the level of professionalism is very clear. Whether it's one day or a weeks work there's always something for all levels of chefs with a very good pay structure. I have and will carry on recommending Athena to other chefs and companies. Keep up the good work!
