Nice things people say about us


  • Sue Hill Recruitment have provided me with a first class service when I have been looking for work

    They have always answered any queries very quickly, so I always felt supported. Strong communication meant I was always updated feedback during any of my interviews and I was lucky enough to secure a fantastic position at Boston University via their services

    Daniel and Ioanna were friendly, caring and informative and I can't recommend their services enough.

    The system used to populate and manage timesheets is very clear and easy to use and understand.

    Many thanks

    David Crossinggum

  • I decided to register with Sue Hill early last year after deciding to move on from a post I had been in for a number of years. I had a very helpful initial meeting where I explained my employment history and the type of role I was looking for.

    Sue Hill always an interesting range of posts in a variety of fields which made them a good agency to be registered with.

    I found the staff very helpful and friendly whenever I contacted them about a relevant advertised post. They would always explain the process by which I could apply. They were always prompt in responding to any enquiries. They were also re-assuring and supportive when I went for a role. The recruiter is very approachable and friendly which helped put me at ease about applying for roles

    Last summer a post in an academic library became available. It was almost exactly the type of role I had been looking. I contacted Sue Hill to ask to be considered for the role. The recruiter matched my experience and skills to the post.  After suggesting a small update to my CV, they put me forward for the role. They briefed me about the employer and what the role would involve.

    I was offered and interview and given fuller information about the role. I was able to prepare fully for the interview based on this information. The recruiter supported me through the interview process.

    I went to the interview and the information I was given proved essential in my ability to prove my suitability for the role and that I understood what would be required of me.

    The following morning to my great delight the recruiter called me to offer me the role. They made sure I got confirmation of the job offer and arranged my starting date and contract within a couple of days and answered all my remaining questions about the role. I began the role within a fortnight of the offer and the recruiter made sure I was happy in my new role

    I have now been in my post for a few months and am enjoying it greatly. Sue Hill ensures I am paid promptly and answer any questions I have regarding issues such as leave.

    I very much recommend Sue Hill

  • Working with Sue Hill has been very good! 

    The team is very friendly and helpful when a problem occurs. I have been able to find placements in libraries through Sue Hill! 

    Very thankful!

  • I joined Suehill Recruitment in November when I was made redundant.

    I spoke to Ioanna and have also dealt with Daniel who has helped me find suitable work. I had an initial interview for a position and both the organisation and I felt the job wasn’t suitable. I was then put forward for another position but was unsuccessful. Ioanna was so helpful and kind towards me and provided constructive feedback from my interview and told me I would find something more suitable.

    In January I was put forward for a role at UCL Library and was successful in securing the contract position. I have now been working here for 5 months and I am really enjoying working there. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and I am really expanding my experience and knowledge. I think Sue Hill are a fantastic agency to have contact with when you are looking for work within the library sector.

    Ioanna is especially kind especially if you don’t succeed in an interview.

  • I am very much pleased with Ioanna Fytilopoulou from Sue Hill recruitment agency for finding me the right job.

    The job conditions and the time of work suit with my current circumstances. Within a day of my registration meeting, she put me forward for an interview and then after called me to see how the interview went. I was very happy with the advice and service I received and have no hesitation to recommend Sue Hill Recruitment to anyone who is looking to secure a new role or even a career change.

    Thank you for all your support.

  • Thanks to Sue Hill Recruitment and Daniel & Ioanna

    I've recently landed a wonderful new role at the very prestigious Wellcome Institute within their library.

    I have been temping for a couple of years through Sue Hill and I have found them to be very supportive and encouraging.  While temping work in such a specialist area can fluctuate, certainly there's been some excellent roles I've been put forward for at UCL, including an opportunity to work with rare books. 

    Sue Hill staff respond quickly and efficiently to any questions or queries and keep me up to date on potential roles and interviews.  They have been very helpful and understanding, and provide clear and helpful communication, and matching my skills to suitable library roles, that they can see I would work well in.

  • I would just like to say a very big thank you to you and your team for helping me get back into full time employment so quickly. Also, for listening to what sort of employment I am interested in and finding me just that!

    The service you and your team provide is exceptional and to the highest level of professionalism. Your website is really easy to get around to and use, I found it really appealing when I was looking for that one great agency to help me.

    You were all so incredibly welcoming and professional from the minute I met you. I cannot thank you enough not only for your ongoing hard efforts but for your fantastic support and advice. I have no hesitation in recommending your service.

    Once again, a huge thank you.

  • I have been registered with Sue Hill for years (but may have expired for periods without my noticing). Unfortunately, vacancies have been almost always in London, or in the furthest part of London for a reasonable commute as I live in East Hampshire about 50 miles/1 hour 10 mins from Waterloo. So, I was delighted when Daniel contacted me about a University of Winchester contract which I am currently employed on, and the application was speedily conducted by Daniel who kept in touch throughout the process of interview etc.

  • I am extremely happy with the service provided by Sue Hill Recruitment. Soon after an initial registration meeting, they were able to arrange two interviews for great positions and assisted me each step of the way. I was fortunate enough to be offered both positions and started within a week of accepting the opportunities.

    Everyone I spoke to was communicative and responsive and made the whole process so easy for me.

    Thank you

    Anna Gialdini

  • I have worked as a library assistant with Sue Hill for three years now across London, in a variety of prestigious posts in higher education. The service Sue Hill provides is excellent in terms of both understanding my personal motivations and targets, and in terms of my skills and professional development. Sue Hill enhances a flexible working environment, direct and pleasant communication and control over the timetable and weekly pay, as well as, the necessary support in financial matters. Furthermore, it allows the opportunity to further progress from a temporary contract to a permanent one with the client company -as has been my case with one of my assignments-. Sue Hill's service is essential in our professional fast paced times, especially since many of us require more than one job to make it through. I am thankful to my colleague who suggested the service to me back in 2015. I haven't looked back ever since.

  • ​Having secured my position at Boston University through Sue Hill, I have since used their services when I have required temporary cover for my Library Assistants and most recently the recruitment of a Deputy Librarian.

    Again they provided strong, quick and informative responses to all of my queries and it is clear that they strive build a relationship with their clients and understand their needs and the kind of candidates that best suit the working environment.

    It’s great, and very reassuring, that I have a named contact I can approach directly, and I feel I can approach them at any point and ask all and any
    questions I need to.

    David Crossinggum - Librarian - Boston University

  • I approached Sue Hill Recruitment about filling a temporary Library Assistant vacancy within our highly specialised academic library.

    The consultants were extremely helpful, responsive and thorough from the first communication.

    They both visited our library to better understand our requirements and to discuss face to face the role we needed to fill.

    The quality of the candidates submitted and interviewed was extraordinarily high, and we soon had a wonderful candidate in post who was an excellent fit within our team.

    My experience of working with Sue Hill Recruitment has been overwhelmingly positive and I cannot recommend them enough for their services.

  • Daniel kindly arranged for Miguel to catalogue my collection of fly-fishing books. I can’t tell you how impressed I am by what he has done. I must add that he is an exceedingly pleasant young man who took great pains to show me what he was doing as he went along, and to patiently explain how to use the material now downloaded into my PC.  

    I am really most grateful to Daniel for arranging all this and must warmly recommend his services for others. In fact, I will be in touch again shortly to ask if Miguel can come again to do the same job for other parts of my book collection.

    Richard Rondel - Private Client

  • I have been using the services of Sue Hill Recruitment to fill temporary positions within my team for almost two years.  My colleagues and I have been consistently impressed with the quality of the suggested candidates, some of whom have gone on to secure full-time roles with us.  The support provided to me by the Sue Hill team during the recruitment process and to our Sue Hill-contracted employees when in post has also been unfailingly responsive and pleasant.  I would not hesitate to recommend Sue Hill Recruitment to colleagues in the library sector who are looking to fill positions.

    Dominic Allington-Smith - Open Access Publications Manager - University College London

  • We have used Sue Hill to recruit part-time library assistants in our small but busy library for many years and have found them to be invaluable.  They have found us a sequence of great candidates and been able to react swiftly to make finding a replacement easy for me, each time one of our assistants moves on!"
