“Jamie was one of the founding members of staff at Immediate and was integral in creating and driving the culture. He has an eye for talent and oversaw the recruitment of the many people that have made Immediate what it is today. I would strongly recommend This Way to any company wanting to build upon their culture or who have staff facing redundancy, and want to give them an advantage in these uncertain times.”
" I’ve worked with Jamie for ten years and during this time he successfully built out a recruitment function to source the best talent for our business. He understands career choices, what makes a strong CV and a great interview. Several years ago he developed a programme to help people who were moving on following a restructure. It was all about helping them to work out what they wanted to do next, how to target the right jobs and position their experience in the best way. The feedback was excellent. Jamie delivered workshops and support which were highly valued and successful. He works really well with a group, sharing his knowledge and expertise and is equally strong with one to one coaching. Jamie’s knowledge and experience in this area are highly targeted and credible. Combined with this, he always brings energy, can build trust, rapport and confidence with people and is also incredibly decent, professional and great person to work with. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.
"I am very pleased to endorse Jamie Cooper and his business ‘This Way’.
I worked with Jamie for a number of years at Immediate Media and know him to be a particularly perceptive, emphatic and energetic individual in his work in managing both recruitment and redundancy.
Jamie is a proven HR professional with experience in interviewing and spotting talent, and he also has experience with helping people to move on positively with their career. He is very well placed to help businesses that are undergoing restructuring as well as to support individuals who are faced with redundancy."
“Jamie supplied me with invaluable CV, cover letter and interview advice that I will probably take with me for the rest of my career. I went into Jamie’s webinar thinking I had a pretty polished CV, I came away with pages of notes and plans to completely revamp the layout, length and content of my CV.
Genuinely, he is one of the best in the business, his ruthless, no-nonsense approach gave me a real advantage applying for high profile roles in a competitive media industry.”
" Jamie has been a trusted recruitment partner of mine for 10 years. Jamie's ability to source and spot talent played a key role in building a winning culture at Immediate. After setting up my own business after leaving Immediate, Jamie continued to offer me and my clients invaluable advice on where to find great talent. Jamie's experience positions himself perfectly to advise candidates how to present themselves to potential employers and give them the best chance of success in a competitive recruitment market. "
"This recommendation is long overdue. A couple of years ago I was tasked with closing a business. My primary concern was making sure all the staff were well looked after and that we supported them in getting another job if that was what they wanted. Jamie was a key player in this. He did not work for the company but his consultancy was invaluable in preparing the teams to face the world of CVs and job interviews. For many it was years since they had been involved in job hunting and Jamie's help was invaluable. Jamie has an easy going style and is totally credible in his role as professional adviser, putting people at their ease without tripping up over his considerable expertise.”
"Promised I would feed this back to you specifically from Ian and Martin who sat with me for 10 minutes raving over how good their session with Jamie was this week. They were blown away with the quality of information provided by Jamie, the advice on interviews, CVs, dress code etc. Said the 2 hours flew by and they really appreciated being able to have the opportunity with him.
Big thanks to Jamie for supporting them in this way. Seems to have had a very positive effect on them.”
"Hey Jamie, Thanks very much for hosting that CV workshop, found it really useful and came away with pages of notes. Thanks for that, it was really useful. I definitely need to spend a bit of time updating my linkedIn and my cv! I might ask you to glance at my linkedIn profile at some point if you don’t mind. I found the session to be informative and a good overview of the process and dos and don’ts and really useful to have an insider’s view. Interesting to know for example that the ‘what are your weaknesses/what do you wish you’d done differently’ question is really about self-awareness. I’d been worrying about my response to this in an internal interview the other day but feel a bit better about it now."
"Hi Jamie, thanks for the session just now. It was refreshingly honest and realistic which you don't often find in these types of sessions. I'll be sending over my revised CV if ok and look forward to getting your feedback!"
"It's hard not to have your confidence knocked after redundancy but Jamie's straight talking and practical advice empowered me to know my strengths and sell them in the best possible way to future employers via my CV and LinkedIn. He also dispelled many myths and old-fashioned thinking I had surrounding what a CV should look like"
"Jamie offered incredible support to staff affected by redundancy, sadly occasioned by a business closure. He ran workshops, offered 1-2-1 advice and supported a large number of individuals to feel more confident and motivated to find new roles. The feedback we had from staff was overwhelmingly positive and happily all individuals affected went on to find new jobs in a short timescale. Jamie’s help and advice was invaluable, coupled with his positive outlook and supportive people-centred approach."
