    Jenny, David and the team at Lloyd Connect possess everything a client desires from a recruitment agency. From the depth of their recruiting processes to their exceptional candidate care, Lloyd Connect demonstrates their durability as an agency of choice through every interaction; a vital factor for clients who, like me, are seeking a long-term partnership with a provider that truly understands the industries they service.  Lloyd Connect have a clear picture of the challenges and opportunities my sector is facing (in an increasingly VUCA world!) and use this knowledge to ensure that the longer term interests of my organisation are front and centre of their talent acquisition processes. Thank you, Lloyd Connect. You are truly awesome!

    I have worked with Jenny Lloyd at Lloyd Connect for over two years to create a multi-disciplined, experienced and highly qualified fundraising team. Jenny has a great aptitude for understanding the needs of our organisation. This made her stand out from all the other recruitment agencies I have ever engaged with. She paid close attention to all the needs of our organisation and ensured only quality candidates were put forward. Jenny is personally driven to make a positive different in the recruitment space and her attitude to her work reflects our organisational values of integrity, success and respect. Jenny’s versatile way of working and experience in recruiting for non-for-profit only added to the benefits she brought to our organisation. I would not hesitate to recommend Jenny and the team at Lloyd Connect to any of my networks.

    Jenny provided both excellent service and fantastic candidates for a number of roles in the not for profit sector. Jenny demonstrated a authentic committment to ensuring that the needs of my organisations were met each time we engaged her services. Whether we were hiring a senior manager, getting in a new receptionist or just wanted a heads up on some research Jenny was always prompt, friendly and got the job done.

    From our first encounter Jenny provided me professional support beyond anything I’d experienced before.  We had not even met before, when Jenny offered to help me on my journey through the job market, her knowledge of the recruitment process and time taken to understand my job requirement helped me land my perfect job.

    Since then, Jenny has continued to check in and connect me with like-minded people who have helped build my network.  Her generous support and ability to ‘join the dots’ has been insightful and beneficial.

    Most recently in my role as GM of P&C we have had a number of hard to fill and rapid recruitment positons, and Jenny has been our saviour placing multiple key roles at our organisation from clinicians to management, from Bayswater to Ipswich.  Every candidate (successful or not) has reported the same care and compassion which Jenny has provide.  This has helped build our brand in the market place, and staff who are successful in their appointments, start in the most positive way.

    Of particular interest has been Jenny’s ability to welcome applications and support new recruits from inclusive lens.  This is particularly important for our organisation as we aspire to build an inclusive workforce.  We have seen a significant increase in our employment of people who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Straight Islanders, as well as those who have lived experience and/or disabilities.

    Jenny offers a genuine approach to helping people achieve meaningful career pathways, always shows a commitment over and above “normal” office hours in providing service to both candidates and clients.  Her honesty in dealing with clients and passion to helping the community sector succeed is done with a great sense of humour and good natured approach in dealings with everyone.

    Jenny is an incredible professional who is both passionate and skilled at sourcing and matching the right opportunity with the right candidate. The process from start to end was transparent and communication was always thorough and prompt. Jenny provided me with all the detail of the organisation and role to the degree whereby I felt 100% comfortable to attend the interview and had no questions in my mind. It was very refreshing to deal with such a passionate professional who saw me as an individual with a story, I was not just a number or a KPI. Thank you Jenny and your team, our connection has led me to an incredible opportunity and every morning I drive to work with a smile on my face, all thanks to you! If you are wanting someone who will understand who you are inside and out and understand what is not said, someone who will source a real candidate who will be in harmony with your workplace, look no further!

    Jenny completely changed my mind about recruiters. She is everything you hope for when you are searching for your next career step. I was particularly impressed by Jenny's ability to cut through the regular bland interactions of recruiters and quickly assess people's skills and attributes that determine a good fit in terms of culture and personality. Jenny is warm and professional, and rapidly puts people at ease to get a real sense of who she is recruiting, and what employers are truly looking for. A delight from start to finish!

    As a candidate, I have had a pleasurable and a superior customer service experience with Jenny Lloyd from Lloyd Connect recruitment services. I came to Jenny with hopes of re-joining the Not-For-Profit sector in Australia and she facilitated a thorough and a highly professional service with a suitable employer. From my first contact with her up until now, it has been an enjoyable experience unlike any other recruitment service I have experienced before. She was warm, friendly and welcoming. She assessed my previous experiences and skills against the requirements of the NFP sector and provided honest and helpful feedback. At the same time, she was considerate of the relevant skills that I brought with me from my previous job experiences. As a candidate from a multicultural background, I was extremely pleased with her positive, professional and respectful customer service approach. She and her team were thorough, clear and smooth with the entire recruitment experience. She even continued to assist me when she was travelling overseas. I highly recommend Lloyd Connect to potential job candidates as well as employers, without any reservations.

    With over 15 years experience in high level recruitment, Jenny Lloyd is a leader in her field. When I first met Jen, I was in need of guidance and practical advice for the next steps in my career as an Executive Assistant and how to advance. Where others just ticked the boxes and took little genuine interest in me, she took the time to really talk to me and give me the benefit of her experience. I have never looked back! I would recommend her highly to any potential candidates or any companies looking to place staff.
