Recruiter comments

“Within a week, we saw an increase in applications and more engagement from applicants. Thank you for a interesting and fun course.”
Avril Ambridge

“I went on Mitch & Jackie’s “Copywriting for recruiters” course on 15th November in London. It was very well put together and it made me re-think the way that I market my jobs. The training was engaging, thought provoking and it enabled me to look back at my prior adverts and think “what on earth was I doing?”.

I’d certainly recommend any recruiter who’d like to improve their service offerings to their clients to invest in going on the training.

It’s one of the first training courses that I have been on where I came out knowing that I was going to implement all what I have learnt.”
Michael Hewitt

“Copywriting for recruiters is a bit like a tin of Ronseal. If you don’t know what that means, you need to do this course.”
George Zitko

“To all you tight arse rec business owners / TA mgrs… send your whole team on this masterclass – the insights & takeaways are priceless. Double your prices Jackie & Mitch. Thank you for taking me back to school.”
Craig Bagshaw

“I would highly recommend to other recruiters to help inspire you with your job ads.”
Shannon Rowlands

“Really enjoyed it and would recommend to any recruiter.”
Danny Jordan

“I don’t want any other recruiters to go on this course. I’d be much happier if they all keep writing their generic, drab ads.”
Alex Babic


Really pleased

About web copy I wrote recently:

“Really pleased with the content and how you have captured what I was looking for. Getting really excited by everything and thank you for all your efforts and assistance.”

“Would 100% recommend”

What some of yesterday’s recruiters said about the Copywriting course I ran in London with Mitch Sullivan:

“Really good experience. As a (quite fresh) recruiter, learning first-hand from both a recruiter and a copywriter – especially how in-depth it was – was so valuable. Not just to myself, but for implementing new ad writing training for my whole company. Would 100% recommend.”
Emily Reynolds

“Fantastic day. Learnt a lot! Still lots to learn and build on so can’t wait to start putting it into practice.”
Danielle Penfold

“Jackie + Mitch opened my eyes to the power of good copy. I’ve always been interested in writing style and now feel empowered to help my clients make their own ads as good as what I can now produce.”
James Nixon


“Nailed it”

“Jackie was a speaker at our inaugural Inspire Recruitment event. In short she “Nailed it”, She took a potentially boring subject and made it interesting and exciting for the audience. Her delivery style showed not only her ability to engage a crowd but her commitment to tailoring her presentation to the audience. I would not hesitate to have Jackie speak at another of my events.”

Alex Moyle

“Jackie spoke at our inaugural Inspire Recruitment event and gave a very engaging presentation to the audience. It was a delight to work with Jackie both before and during the event. I’d be very happy to recommend Jackie to speak at future events.”

Louise Triance ‘Hub of the UK recruiting industry’

“Best training investment”

Feedback from Nottingham’s Distinct Recruitment agency, about yesterday’s copywriting course:

“A great interactive session. I’ve taken away some in-depth, tangible skills to be able to bring my adverts to life. The course gives a great opportunity to give yourself a USP.”
Joel Stevenson

“An insightful course. Lots of relevant information which was put to practical use during the day.”
Claire Fletcher

“Mitch and Jackie’s training was fun, interesting and very helpful in allowing me to write better copy for ads.”
Jo Sanderson

“Great session with Mitch and Jackie. Loads of ideas and stuff to put into practice.”
Arran Jaiswal

“Mitch and Jackie are a fab duo. They create a great environment for criticism to be received well, and provide feedback that is vital.”
Lauren Hulme

“Best training investment we’ve made in years.”
Ryan Jaiswal

Spot on.

“Thanks Jackie Barrie for helping me to come up with a new exercise to engage the audience in my lunchtime talk today. It worked brilliantly and really got people involved.

I’ve asked Jackie for ideas for exercises several times and they are always spot on.”

Andy Lopata in Hong Kong (on Facebook)

“Really chuffed”

About case studies I wrote for a client:

“Thank you very much for all your work. I’m really chuffed with the final output.”
