My name is Akaash and I am a community pharmacist. I would like to state that Manny Khaira is an excellent recruitment agent who helped me every step of the way to find a position that was perfect for me. His professional approach was second to none and I believe him advocating for me was a major factor in convincing the employer to offer me the position- he is an asset to your company, you should be proud!
Just wanted to say how grateful I am for all your help. You do a brilliant job of advocating for me, organising locum days and answering queries, all while being prompt and professional.
I will definitely be recommending you and PPRUK to my colleagues.
I have been using PPR services for our optical Locum cover for over two years now, specifically with Anu.
Anus communication has been excellent through out this time and she has continued to support us in filling our vacancies.
We will continue to use PPR and Anu as they have demonstrated to us that they they have the candidates and means to fill our ever changing demand.
I am new to health care , so still trying to get on top of Rotas and deployment. Craig has been a massive help to keep me on track.
Craig will prompt me to give dates in the future to work on, so we are not just firefighting on the day. Equally Craig does what he can on the day to support especially at short notice.
Craig has my respect in dealing with recruitment because it is so hard but takes the stress away as Craig is prompt , thorough and keeps me updated even if no one has picked up the shifts.
I can honestly say Craig does everything he can to support , polite, friendly, and always speedy.
"Anu has been an amazing help with my transition into working as a Locum Pharmacist; she is on hand Monday to Sunday to answer any requests with prompt e-mail replies and even on the end of a phone call. Anu regularly keeps in touch with me regarding my availability and is aware of my preferences when it comes to journey time. She also helps accommodate the communication with the pharmacies when it comes to rate discussion, mileage allowance and invoice processing. Anu helps me fill my locum diary a month in advance and even the day before if my availability changes. I can't thank Anu enough since I first started using PPR UK back in February and look forward to continuing working with her. (Locum Pharmacist)"
I just wanted to take a few moments to let you know how impressed and appreciative I have been by the support I have received from PPRUK and in particular Lea-Anne Barnes.
We say that "People buy people first and in the case of Lea-Anne this is certainly true, she is a great Ambassador for your business, nothing is too much trouble, I am kept up to date and informed of progress on our recruiting requirements and it is nice to deal with someone who I feel is in tune with the values of my business.
I was recently approached by your Associate Director, Manny Khaira.
I just wanted to thank him and the company for his help and support throughout the process, from finding a suitable role for me to having successfully secured the position of an Audiologist in a well-reputed company. At times, I felt that I was not confident enough to go ahead with the interview but Manny encouraged me to be just honest and be myself. He checked on me at every stage of the process. He took my individual preferences into account while advising accordingly.
Iâm truly grateful for his assistance and admire his professionalism.
Im beginning my new position on Monday 8th March 2021 and would like to commend your colleague Manny Khaira on his recruitment skills and professionalism. He supported me through the preparation for the interviews as well as after the meetings. He provided professional advice and helped me make informed decisions. I feel comfortable taking on this role and will keep in touch with Manny regarding my future endeavours.
I would like to say a simple thank you to two of your employees: Lea-Anne Barnes & Manny Khaira for securing me a job with a large company and quickly responding to my emails. I believe, she had to go above and beyond during working on it, as getting this position with ASDA is very challenging. Thank you.
After a recent positive experience with PPRUK I would like to provide feedback regarding my point of contact, Manny Khaira.
Manny had originally sent an email through to myself regarding a position that had become available. I decided to give him a call to discuss.
I asked to speak to him personally and found him extremely polite, knowledgeable and honest. After liaising with him, he discussed the available position and provided myself with enough information for me to decide that the position was entirely suitable. He arranged a telephone interview for myself and all details discussed were followed up promptly via email as written confirmation.
Following the interview I called and spoke to Manny regarding my thoughts and feedback from the interview. Manny kindly negotiated a superb package on my behalf, which I am entirely grateful for.
To summarise I found the experience with Manny and PPRUK very professional, timely and a pleasure to deal with. I will certainly be recommending yourselves to existing friends and colleagues who may be looking for future or existing positions that become or are available.
Kind regards and once again many thanks to Manny for his help in finding me suitable employment.
I am emailing you regarding your employees service, Manny Khaira. Firstly, when I called PPRUK regarding a job available, Manny explained everything to me about the job. If i had any questions he would go out to find the answer for myself. He has been there for me from the start till the end of the job process. Lastly I would like to say that Manny has been a great help and eased the process of finding the job for me.
You definitely have a great employee!
I wanted to drop you a quick email to say how very impressed I have been with your Company PPR UK, which has been in no small way down to Lea-Anne Barnes and her professional attitude. From the first conversation with her I could tell that she not only knew the market very well, but that she also has some very good contacts within the industry, as within a few days of speaking to Lea-Anne I was in front of a decision maker for an interview.
It's been a few short weeks from our first conversation to now having an offer of employment and I'm extremely pleased with everything Lea-Anne has done to help make this happen.
I would like to say how efficient the service from your company has been. I have been very impressed by the standards of professionalism at every step of the way. I would have no hesitation in recommending your service.
I have recently secured a position with the assistance and professional guidance of Manny Khaira , without whose help (at my age!) I may have struggled.
It`s taken 6 months or so of regular weekly contact with me, declined offers of work and persistence by him on my behalf to finally find a role I felt committed to.
He`s been so friendly and resilient, having to take lots of "I`m not interested" from me but kept chasing possible employers and leads which we both worked on together.
I must say he's been excellent in every way and a real gentleman with it.
Please pass on my thanks.
Firstly I wanted to thank you for the excellent service you have provided our business over the past 7 months. In a year of staff changes you have been able to find all the cover we have needed, placing Optoms who work to a high standard and are popular with our patients and staff.
I know I can rely on you to rebook promptly when locums have cancelled and you communicate all the booking information quickly and efficiently by email and respond to any queries by return making my job so much easier. It has been a pleasure working with you, and great to be able to work with the same consultant throughout. Many thanks for your continuing support.
I wanted to take a moment to show my appreciation for all the hard work that colleagues at PPRUK put into helping a Locum like me find placements with preferred optical practices.
In particular I wanted to highlight my sincere thanks to Rishi Dattani, who has helped me greatly over the past 6 months. I was a resident for over 9 years and was a little anxious to step into the locumming lifestyle after relocating. Rishi is very understanding of my work requirements and tries his best to meet them. He builds great rapport very easily and that in my opinion deserves recognition and praise. His professionalism is what will keep me with and recommend an agency like PPRUK.
My experience with your organisation was exemplary. This is all down to Manny who dealt with me.
He took the time and effort to speak to me whenever I had a question. Throughout the whole recruitment process he was the upmost professional.
I have no doubt that my new employer has the same experience I did with this individual. As he represents your organisation, he is doing so in a way that radiates professionalism.
Ifzal - Pharmacist
Hope you are well and safe.
I would like to give you a feedback about my experience with Lea-Anne.
She has been absolutely amazing from day one and I am sure she will be when I will start my new job. She has been Always responding and very friendly. I definitely would recommend your company to my friends.
I wanted to just leave some feedback for one of your colleagues - Amy, as she did a wonderful job helping me to find my new role.
Amy's approach to helping me secure a new role was fantastic and kept me up to speed with everything. Her communication skills are very strong and she comes across very reliable and trustworthy. In all, my experience with her was great and I'm very happy to have been referred to her.
I have found PPRUK to be one of the best of recruitment agencies i have dealt with. Very efficient, trustworthy and professional yet at the same time are easy to talk to and seek advice from. The whole process from looking for a new role-interview-job offer could not have been simpler and more stress free. I would like to say a huge thank you to Lea-Anne Barnes for all her support throughout.
Dear Mrs Angela Britton,
I would like to express my deepest appreciation for your excellent Associate Director Manny Khaira. He went out of his way to make me feel very comfortable and allowed me to focus and get a job as a Pharmacist.
His guidance, his kind words and his understanding completely won me over.
His thoughtfulness and attention towards my delicate situation helped forge what I hope will be a successful career. I couldnât do it without him.
I would just like to thank PPRUK and especially Amy Goodwin for all her help and support she has given these past few weeks!
The service has been outstanding and I cannot fault a thing!.
Just a quick message to let you know how pleased I was with the excellent service I have received from PPRUK and Lea-Anne Barnes in particular. Good communications and pleasing outcome.
I hope you are well. I just wanted to let you know that your colleague Manny has been very helpful in helping me secure a job as a mental health pharmacist. Manny helped right from my initial first stage online interview right through to the final interview. He has been very helpful during my preparation for the interview and in building my confidence up to and on the day of the interview. Finally, I thank PPRUK to help me secure a job as a Mental Health Pharmacist.
My experience with Amy Britton-Powell was very good, always being helpful and responsive to my queries. Finding a job was quick and communication was clear, warm and to the point. I would recommend Amy for the above reasons.
Good Afternoon Angela,
I am the Manager of an Optical Store in the South West. I just wanted to email regarding how Kate has handled my requests to find Locum Optometry cover.
I have put ads out with a number of Locum agencies over the last few weeks as we had unexpected holiday and needed it covered very urgently. I gave my pricing and what I needed.
Not only did Kate understand everything I wanted and used the criteria I gave her, she took the initiative to ask me about rising prices in certain situations, she was able to contact me back at all hours of the day that suited me.
Kate made me feel like my business was important to her, and for an agency to put that much effort into one of their clients is phenomenal.
All of the other agencies did not find me people quick enough or for the exact dates that I wanted or the pricing that I wanted. Therefore Kate excelled my expectations of how your company works, and for that I will be using your company in the future and I will most certainly be asking for Kate.
I have emailed due to the fact that I know being a customer facing company that it takes 2 minutes to praise someone, although it is not done enough.
I hope you understand the level of service and professionalism that was shown to me by Kate.
I will not be using another Locum agency and I will also be recommending you to our region and our division of over 100 stores. I have already spoken to the Divisional Director about this, and about how professional and efficient Kate was.
Just some feedback with my experience with PPRUK and with Lea-Anne. She made the whole process so simple easy and stress free. The communication was prompt and I was informed each step of the way of the process. She was very friendly and helpful.
I just wanted to say how delighted I am with the manner in which you have handled the whole process for me. Your attention to detail with regard to both guidance for interview questions, job specification, and matching me to the ethics of the company have been so accurate. I can't wait to get started! Thank you from myself and my family and I will be recommending you directly to all of my colleagues. You've really done a great job!
I would like to thank you for your constant support and help in covering the practices when needed.
I hope this great partnership
continues for the time ahead.
I got the job from your Recruitmeant company I would like to say that Lea-Anne was extremely helpful, she was very easy to communicate with. She kept me updated and was focused on my personal wants and helped me negotiate good benefits from the company. Iâm happy with the services she provided and have already started recommending this company to family and friends.
Anu has been very proactive and enthusiastic since the first day I got in contact with her for locum work. She has been very accommodating, helpful and keen to provide me with dates and regions that I prefer. I feel that Anu is very reliable and I especially feel comfortable to approach her. She has filled up my schedule so quickly and efficiently and made the process seamless! I would recommend Anu to anyone of my colleagues who needs locum work. Thank you Anu for your great service!
I would like to appreciate Manny for his professionalism during his time working on getting me my new pharmacy Manager role.
He paid great attention to all details discussed and was very responsive to my messages.
He kept me updated with all the necessary information throughout the interview.
He showed a great insight to the company and the role advertised and was able to get me the best deal offered.
PPRUK is always my first choice agency when Iâm looking for any locum work to book. Kate, who looks after me, constantly goes above and beyond her role to secure me work in the areas that Iâm looking for at short notice and for that I am very grateful.
She is kind, considerate and accommodating and the best recruitment consultant Iâve ever worked with to date. She has aided me in securing work for very reputable companies and regularly does so without fail and with absolute promptness too.
Knowing that Iâve booked through PPRUK gives me the upmost confidence and reassurance in knowing that if anything goes wrong, they are there for me to remedy the problem and find a mutable agreement for both parties. Thank you so much for looking after me and I look forward to working with you for the many years to come
I am a pharmacist with over 20 years of experience, and most recently decided to make a move towards a more challenging role with more opportunity for development. Wishful thinking as it may seem in the difficult times we live in, thanks to your company ... it came true.
Please allow me to express my appreciation for the assistance and guidance offered me by one of your employees Manny Singh Khaira, as I do believe that it was his dedication to bring my case to a successful end along with his friendly approach were the main factors that have contributed to the positive and super quick outcome for me.
Just wanted to let you know that Elif Ozan is an amazing recruitment officer/consultant. Very quick and efficient with my whole recruitment process.
Manny- thank you for all your hard work too. You're an excellent consultant and i hope we can work together in the near future.
With Best Wishes
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the valuable assistance you provided me during my job application process and interview.
Thank you again for your time and assistance.
Just writing to thank Manny Khaira for his services in helping me secure a Pharmacist role at one of the big pharmacy multiples. I wanted to work for a big company which will give me opportunities to progress and I felt the company I was with were not able to provide that. I spoke with Manny regarding this and he listened and was so quick and efficient to set up an interview.
Manny was fantastic in keeping me updated and pushing my future employers for answers. I am looking forward to keeping up my relationship with Manny and PPRUK in order to find future roles which will further progress my career in pharmacy.
I would like to say that I have found Lea-Anne to be extremely dynamic and efficient. Despite the difficult circumstances that we find ourselves, she has worked extremely hard to find me a suitable role and to ensure that the remuneration package was acceptable. She is a credit to your organisation.
I am just writing to you to give some feedback on Manny.
He was really helpful in helping me secure my new role. As a recently qualified pharmacist he guided me through the process and provided invaluable advice. He was very approachable and always on hand to help. Manny would definitely be my first port of call if I ever decided to look for a new role.
I would like to say Manny has been a great help in helping me secure a role. He is very friendly and super easy to work with. He keeps you updated throughout the whole process. He has a good listening ear and is someone you can trust and express your thoughts to. He was very professional in all his work with me. I count anyone who he works with him lucky as he will make a very good colleague and friend.
Good morning Angela,
I would like to thank Manny and Lea-Anne for their help in regards to my employment as a Pharmacist Manager in Doncaster. Manny was in touch with me a few days after I sent my CV to your agency. He took time to understand my job preferences and he helped a lot to tailor my job offers to them. Whilst he was on annual leave, he handed it over to Lea-Anne and I was kept informed throughout the process. Their interactions with me were very professional and helpful. I would definitely recommend PPR UK anytime.
I would like to give you some feedback regarding the service I have had with Manny.
He has been excellent, and got me exactly what I wanted, his understanding to my situation and proactively helping me find the right role with the flexibility I require is beyond any expectation, this is due to great rapport he had with the company I have signed up to.
He understood everyone's requirements regarding the company and myself, I can not praise him enough for this.
Due to my experience with Manny, he will be my number 1 person to call should I require your companies service. I can not thank him enough. He is definitely an asset for your company.
Hi dear Angela,
I'm writing to share my recent experience with PPRUK. I have applied for the position of Pharmacist Manager with a supermarket pharmacy via PPRUK. Manny has been a thorough professional right from the time of application to arranging the interview to negotiating the contract with the employer. He has been in constant touch and made sure there was no communication lost whilst I was on my holiday. He has taken a lot of effort in arranging the interview date that is best suited to me.
His guidance and support has been absolutely priceless. I would definitely recommend Manny/PPRUK.
Good Morning Angela,
I have recently had the wonderful experience of having contact with Manny, He has helped me gain successful employment as a Pharmacy Manager! He has been extremely helpful and supportive through the entire process. Very professional. I have asked him many questions and each time he has answered me quickly. He phoned me after the interview to see how everything went.
I would most certainly recommend Manny and PPRUK.
I would just like to say a big thank you to PPR UK and in particular Manny, who helped me to secure a new role as a pharmacist manager. Manny was so supportive and was quick to respond to my emails and answer any questions I had. Within a couple of days of sending him my CV he had arranged an interview and a few hours after the interview he rang to tell me I had been successful. Manny was extremely helpful and efficient throughout the whole process and I greatly appreciated that he was always happy to communicate at a time that suited me.
I would definitely recommend Manny and PPR UK!
Just wanted to write a few words of appreciation to the PPR UK team. Manny is a wonderful asset to the team, helping me secure my first job as a qualified pharmacist. I feel extremely lucky to have been given the role of a clinical lead pharmacist so early on in my career, it is exactly what I was looking for.
Manny has made the whole process easy for me and supported me throughout, giving me an insight into what the interview would be like and helping me negotiate my wage which is something I would have been nervous about doing on my own. I would recommend PPR UK to anyone looking to find their dream job and will be in touch in the future should I ever need to.
Good Morning Angela,
I just wanted to thank PPR UK and in particular Manny, who worked tirelessly to secure me a new role so quickly!
I always feel that Manny is looking after my best interests and I really appreciate his support and advice.
I would like to thank your team especially Amy Goodwin for the fantastic service i received from your agency.
I got in touch with Amy when i applied for a Pharmacist position in Scotland and throughout the process my experience has been nothing but pleasant. She kept me up to date throughout the entire application process and even negotiated a very good package on my behalf. I have no doubt that she is a great asset to your institution.
Thanks to your recruitment agency, I have accepted a job offer beyond what I thought was achievable at this relatively early stage in my career. The benefits on offer eclipse my previous remuneration package. I have your agency to thank for achieving such an amazing opportunity.
PPRUK offered prompt, flexible and courteous support throughout the process. They scheduled an interview to work around my very limited availability, then provided detailed insight into the application and interview process. This allowed me to perfect my interview technique and receive a job offer within 3 days!
I am particularly impressed with Lea-Anne, who really "sold me the position. I was hesitant to leave a company I have been with for nearly 3 years, and particularly my team; however despite my lofty expectations, I was able to achieve an offer above even my top salary expectations. The job and location suit me perfectly. This position will allow me to further develop my career and reach my personal goals in a much shorter time than I would have in my previous position.
Thank you once again!
I would like to mention that Manny has been absolutely brilliant to help me secure a role. He is very professional and friendly to work with. I must say that he provided very useful advice and was very supportive, and has certainly kept me up to date in the entire process. I really appreciate his work as a professional and an individual. He is very understanding.
To be honest I was approached by many recruiters and in my experience I have never worked with any one like Manny. He knows exactly how to connect, support and actually secure a professional position. With Manny itâs not about ticking boxes but itâs about doing whatâs right for the client and the business environment. Iâm sure you must be proud to have someone like him in the business.
All the best and many thanks.
I just wanted to say thank you to you and especially Manny for helping me find a job. He really helped me out a lot with interview techniques and tips and I had a job offer within a week so I was really happy and had a great experience with him.
I signed up with a lot of recruitment agencies before but they were all just talk and no action but Manny really really tried hard to land this job for me I cannot thank him enough. I cannot even begin to tell you how great Manny is! He really gave me the motivation I needed to do well and be confident in my interview and just in general as well.
Thank you again I would definitely recommend him and your recruitment agency!
I would like to give you my feedback on the service I got from your organisation.
I was attended to by three members of your staff, and they were all helpful and rendered a professional service. Elif was particularly interested in me getting the job, she sent helpful materials to prepare for the interview, and offered to go through them if I wasn't clear on anything.
I am very pleased with the service I received and will recommend your company to my colleagues if in need of a job.
I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the hard work you have put into finding my new position. You have been amazing as you have managed to get me an interview which has resulted in me being offered this fantastic opportunity.
I cannot find the words to tell you how much I appreciate your hard work. You have been so supportive in your role helping me to secure employment. I wish you well in your career at PPR UK.
Thank you once again
I have known Manny for a couple of years and he has always impressed me with his enthusiasm and the genuine care that oozes from his interactions with clients. This was evident when I was turned down after an interview for a post in the South. Manny was caring yet professional and analytical of the potential reasons of the employer's decision.
He was as supportive and understanding as I could have wanted. He is an honest, wise recruiter that I would like to keep in touch with throughout my career.
I just wanted to bring to your attention the very positive and pleasant experience I have had during my recent job application. In particular I would like to highlight the superb service that Manny has given in supporting me through the application and interview process. He was very thoughtful, attentive, polite, friendly and helpful .
His encouragement and attention to detail has been fantastic and he has always honoured any commitments he has made. So I just want to make it crystal clear how much I appreciate his help and advice and I am very thankful to him as the position has been offered to me and it is an amazing opportunity and I accepted the position promptly.
Just writing to thank Manny for his services in helping me secure a Pharmacist Manager role. I have had to be patient as it was a complicated process but Manny was fantastic in keeping me updated and pushing my future employers for answers. I am looking forward to keeping up my relationship with Manny and PPRUK in order to find future roles which will further progress my career in pharmacy.
PPR UK were very supportive in helping me find the right job for me and were there to guide me every step of the way. A big thanks to Manny for lining up a successful interview within weeks of joining PPR UK.
Angela did a superb job in matching the candidate to the client - from recruitment, through selection, and afterwards in follow up. A highly professional service.
I am writing to inform everyone who is searching for a position as a Pharmacist that PPR UK should be the first port of call for everyone. I was very impressed at the standard of service I received and also the manner in which I received care and attention.
I had a genuine sense of staff (Hollie) taking an interest in the criteria which I was asking for and also in my well being. Hollie provided me with help in terms of not just looking for my ideal job but also with interview techniques.
I was regularly contacted to ask if everything was going as planned and I was even contacted after I had commenced my job to enquire if the job was living up to my expectations. I am very happy in my place of work and I found the whole experience less stressful and more focussed with the help of PPR UK.
Thank you for your help and I wish to thank Hollie once again for her great customer service.
Angela is a focussed knowledgeable individual who works hard to establish and maintain business relationships. I have found her work to be of a high quality and would easily recommend her services.
Having used the services of PPR UK recently I am amazed by the speed and professionalism of this company. From the moment I asked them to find me a Pharmacist they were in regular contact and took away all the strains and pressures around recruiting.
Angela Britton who is the founder of PPR UK has a wealth of experience in Community Pharmacy and understood our requirement, PPR UK was therefore able to provide me with the perfect candidate. I strongly recommend PPR UK to Independent Pharmacies and will use their services in the future!
Manny has helped us source some of the best candidates for our Pharmacy group, ranging from Pharmacists to Dispensers. Manny listened to the brief and came up trumps, it truly is a tailored service, made even better by Mannys meticulous attention to detail and relentless pursuit to find the ideal candidate. I would not hesitate to recommend PPRUK to anyone who is thinking about recruiting as they do the hard work and only select and field candidates that are suitable for the vacancy in your organisation.
I am writing to you to let you know that your colleague Manny Khaira has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of me applying for the job vacancy for Pharmacist Manager. I want to ensure that he is recognised for his exemplary performance and the credit that he brings to PPRUK.
At the start of the process I was called and I felt Manny was very professional and very clear and helpful. He stated who he was and was very polite and was very patient with me. At points I would be at work and missed his calls but he would leave very clear voice mail messages and follow them up with detailed and complete emails. He was always available for me to speak to whenever I called which was very reassuring and positive.
A very important thing which he told me was to write a supporting cover letter to sell myself better and I think this is what was key to my successful application. He really spent time and effort with me and it was a very positive feeling to have that personal support.
He went further by keeping me updated constantly. He carried out the first interview very well and made me feel at ease in an otherwise stressful situation. I felt I could confide in him and trust him. He was responsible for booking my interview and again kept me well informed and I felt very lucky as he was very confident and positive. He was very reassuring at the pre interview stage with information and assurance and exactly what I needed to hear. At the post interview stage he was again very kind and confident and knew exactly the right things to say. He was always available to speak to and always was very useful.
So I just want to make it crystal clear how much I appreciate his help and advice and I am very thankful to him as the position has been offered to me and it is an amazing opportunity and I accepted the position promptly.
I have used other recruitment agencies and the experience I have had with PPRUK has been far greater than any experience I have had in the past, all thanks to Manny.
