  • Anne Corder Recruitment snaps up job seeking candidate to join its growing team

Having worked with Anne Corder Recruitment as both a hiring client and job seeking candidate for over 20 years, Sarah-Jane Bond has now secured a role as a Recruitment Specialist within the agency’s own growing team.

Sarah-Jane first worked with the recruitment firm as a candidate and joined RNIB as a temporary PA before moving into an operations management role. As part of this role, she stayed in contact with Nel Woolcott, now Anne Corder Recruitment’s managing director, and worked with the agency to recruit temporary workers.

Anne Corder Recruitment was her first point of call once again when she moved on from RNIB, and before long the agency had helped her secure another operations manager role where she would regularly pick up the phone to Nel and the team to hire staff and place vacancies.

However, when Sarah-Jane reached out recently in search of the next step in her own career, Nel promptly offered her a role within the agency’s very own team.

“Sarah-Jane has always felt very much part of the ACR family,” says Nel “and it felt like it was the right time to make it official. She and I have had several conversations over the years about joining the business, but the time was never quite right – until now!”

Nel added, “We always knew she was a clever recruiter and can spot the perfect candidate for her own team at ten paces – she is now using that expertise to support our clients in building their own brilliant teams. She has an amazing ability to connect easily with clients and candidates, and really understands what it is they are looking for. She will be a brilliant asset to our already fabulous team!”

Sarah-Jane said, “I have felt at home as part of the Anne Corder Recruitment team from day one. They really do care about providing the best service for their clients and candidates. I’m so pleased to be part of such a successful team and am looking forward to contributing to our ambitious growth plans this year.”

With two more additions to the team already planned, Anne Corder Recruitment is building on the significant growth it saw in 2022 and strengthening its team with more talented people to help meet increasing client and candidate demand.

Sarah-Jane Bond

Recruitment Specialist

I have spent the majority of my career working in Operational and Project Management roles. I first worked with ACR about 25 years ago as a candidate. ACR secured me a role at RNIB, where I stayed for 15 years, finishing as Head of Operations. Recruitment has always been a big part of the roles I have undertaken and is something that I really enjoy. When you match a fantastic candidate with the right client there is no better feeling!
Favourite food: “Has to be any dish from the Mediterranean”
Favourite film: “There are many, love a chick flick, especially ‘The Holiday at Christmas”

Outside of work

“I love socialising with friends, can always squeeze a bit of retail therapy in around volunteering at Deeping Rangers FC, running their hospitality on match days.”

Sarah-Jane on ACR

“I couldn’t have been more delighted when Nel asked me to join the company and have felt at home since day one. They really do care about providing the best service for their clients and candidates, building genuine relationships with both. The team culture is second to none, everyone supporting and looking out for each other. It is a pleasure to come to work every day.”

Emily Hill

Recruitment Specialist

Emily was a Primary School Teacher for 10 years, before moving into the EdTech space, as a Relationship Specialist for MATs. She joined ACR in July 2023 and particularly thrives when recruiting for Account Management, Customer Service and Sales roles.
Favourite food:
“Spag bol or pizza”
Favourite film:
“The Notebook – or any romantic chick flick really!”

Outside of work

“I have a 1-year-old, so love fun family weekends with my husband and son more than anything. Time socialising with friends and family is where I’m happiest.”

Emily on ACR
“The unique culture, values, and style at ACR is polar opposite to other recruitment agencies and what I believed recruitment was. Having previously been a Relationship Specialist, I feel I’m doing the same thing! No hard sell, we truly care about our candidates and clients, and the team culture is 2nd to none!”
