My name is Louise Thompson, I am the Group HR & Talent Manager at the Barker Ross Group. I oversee all of the Human Resource functions for the group including recruitment, on-boarding, employee engagement, talent management.
I have been with the group since October 2000 starting as a Payroll Administrator and have progressed through the years to my current role, I believe this demonstrates what an excellent employer Barker Ross are, if you are willing to go the extra mile they really do recognise it!
I applied for a job with Barker Ross off their website due to an unfortunate circumstance meaning I was without a job. Louise contacted me within a number of hours to discuss my background and arrange for me to come in for an interview. From the 1st conversation to the employment with the company, Louise was in contact before and after the interview to see how the interview went and supply feedback. The interview process meant meeting a number of managers, but that may been down to finding the right area for my expertise. The interview process was formal but relaxed and you were made to feel at ease. For anyone looking to come and work with Barker Ross I can highly recommend this. From arriving on day 1 with your starter pack ready on your desk you are made to feel like one of the Barker Ross team immediately. I would recommend Barker Ross to anyone who is experienced or looking to get into the recruitment market.

I have to say that I knew instantly as soon as I applied for the Onsite Resourcer position that this was going to be the company id like to work for. My first communications were with Louise and she was so informative about the position, making sure that I fully understood the role, location etc. and this was all done in a friendly and not pushy manner. Louise kept me up to date with the process when she said she would and always made me feel that she was just a phone call away should I need her. So thank you Louise for that, being the first person I spoke to within the group, it was definitely for me a positive start.
