Canali

We at Canali have worked with Rely Recruitment and directly with Dimitris for the past 2 years, working on some key and strategic positions within our flagship boutique in Bond Street London. It is always very difficult for a recruitment agency to provide the right calibre of candidates for any position. Most agencies will pass on a stock of people they have on their books, but often miss the full brief provided to them by the employer. With Dimitris this has been the opposite entirely, we only receive a small quantity of high calibre candidates for each role. The standard of CV’s is always very high and meets the entire brief provided in advance. I would describe Dimitris as professional and diligent, always working very hard to find the right people in the industry and in so many occasions headhunting directly.

Rely Recruitment have continually provided the highest level of service with each and every position we have had. Dimitris prides himself on his work…

this is often not the case with large recruitment agencies with strong market share in this area. We at Canali therefore have no hesitancy in recommending Rely Recruitment under Mr Dimitris Demetriou.

Dimitris at Rely Recruitment was highly professional and efficient.

He took time to really understand our business, industry and the type of person we were looking for.

We have always received a friendly, fast and efficient service from Dimitris and we know that he works hard to deliver on our brief and is not just putting anyone forward for the role.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with him and Rely recruitment.

Just a quick email to say thank you.
I have dealt with many recruitment agencies in my time in retail, with varying degrees of success.
I have always been very happy in my dealings with Rely Recruitment.

They appear to understand the importance of recommending the correct individuals in a challenging market,

and provide me with only good candidates based on the criteria required for our particular business.

I found the recruitment process quick, smooth and organised. I had my meeting / interview at their head office and was placed within a temp job just 4 days later. I was provided with valuable information throughout the process (at interview, over the phone and texts) as well as a ‘Temp Staff Booklet’ that detailed various information such as time sheets, dress code and more.

I would recommend Rely Recruitment to anyone looking for a professional agency that specialises in luxury retail

Rely Recruitment provided me with an invaluable service, I had unrivalled support in finding and preparing for my role at Pal Zileri. I attribute my success to the professionalism of James Paraschou, Dimitris Demetriou and Anissa Larouci. I can safely say this is the only agency thus far that was able to place me in a business that reflected my career needs.

Rely Recruitment was able to find me several solid luxury businesses that I could choose from.

I was going through several interviews with different agencies when I decided to apply for a role advertised with Rely Recruitment. Most positive experience of all!

I finally met someone who took the time to truly understand what I was looking for in my next job, what skills and experiences I had to offer…

 as well as providing me with valuable and constructive career  advice. Dimitris identified a suitable role for me at Anne Fontaine. He organised an interview, assisted me with interview preparation, advice and kept me updated on the progress of my application every step of the way. I strongly recommend Rely Recruitment to anyone looking for jobs or employers looking for staff. Job searching and interviewing can be very stressful. Dimitris is a true professional with a warm and charming attitude who can help you through your journey. I have been recommending Rely to all my friends and ex-colleagues. I must say the company name perfectly matches their services and who they are. Thank you Dimitris .

Bukeja

A professional, efficient and excellent service provided to me by Dimitris at Rely Recruitment. He arranged to meet me on the same day we spoke, and after our informative meeting he sent my CV to Brooks Brothers and arranged an interview the day after. He took time to prep me for the interview, providing valuable guidance, tips and advice. I found Dimitris very professional; warm with expert knowledge in the luxury retail industry, totally understanding the companies he recruits for and the type of candidate that matches their needs.

Dimitris is a consultant you can trust and build a relationship with immediately.

He has always been a pleasure to speak to and totally understands the way to approach me with potential roles.

When approaching the expiration of my contract, Dimitris got in contact with me and informed me of suitable roles. He is definitely someone on the ball and I can see why he has a very good reputation in recruitment.

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for all your help and advice in helping me get my new role. I was beginning to lose all hope in employment agencies, especially the ones who register you and then conveniently forget about contacting you ever again! However the help and support you have given me since I registered has been brilliant.

I have never known an agency spend so much time and effort in contacting me, keeping me updated with what was happening and making sure I had the best preparation possible for the interview.

I will be recommending you to all my friends.

I was not looking for a new job, I was happy in my role, doing well and had a clear path of progression. However, a consultant from Rely Recruitment got in contact with me regarding an attractive opportunity.  I’m pleased to say he instantly built a rapport with me and was able to clearly articulate the opportunity and all its details. I have found the

team at Rely to be incredibly professional and supportive

thinking about my personal career development as well as the interests of their clients. They seem really tenacious at matching clients and candidates together. The team have offered me some great advice always been on hand and know their market place in detail, really understand the roles they are recruiting for.

I would not hesitate in recommending Rely Recruitment to anyone looking to progress their career in luxury retail.

I found the team excellent at understanding my past experience,

education and aspirations and then quickly placing me (as a temp) within prestigious ladieswear boutiques in London. Although I am now moving back to Wales, I will definitely be contacting Rely Recruitment when I return to London as they are an agency I have grown to trust and happy to recommend.

I had the pleasure to collaborate with Dimitris during my career change and job hunting. He has a deep knowledge and understanding of the fashion and retail industries. He did not simply transfer my file to his client, he took the time to meet with me and provided me a personal support throughout the recruitment process which helped me to secure my new role.

He is a great character, hard worker, passionate and always with a positive attitude which undoubtedly helps him to build long-lasting and productive relationships with his clients and candidates.

I would definitely recommend Dimitris and Rely Recruitment to any company and job seeker.

Joining Rely Recruitment was great because they really took the time to get to know me and put me forward for jobs that suited my skills and personality. Unlike other recruitment agencies, Rely Recruitment placed me according to my ability and potential rather than just placing me in similar positions I had held in the past.

Rely Recruitment also regularly call just to catch up and check on how I am getting on, dealing with any concerns I have immediately.I feel very lucky to have the constant support of Rely Recruitment, and it is brilliant to work for an agency that genuinely wants you to progress and succeed in any career you choose!

Anissa is a stand-out specialist recruiter in a company which itself stands out from other recruitment agencies due to the quality and personal touch of the service they offer. She is a fantastic listener and able to quickly establish a close working relationship with her clients. In addition to this, she is very honest in her work and always takes her own clients needs into account first and foremost in order to provide a satisfactory and sustainable placement for all parties concerned. I am always happy to drop whatever I am doing to receive a call from Anissa and she would be the first person I would approach if when I am ready to move on from Icon Live.

I can confidently say that both Dimitris and Angela were the best recruitment consultants I have ever worked with. They provided exceptional guidance and help throughout each stage of the recruitment process and were always keen to give advice whilst showing a genuine interest in my progress throughout my application. After a successful application Dimitris and Angela stayed in touch, were interested in how the job was going and always had an interest in how my relocation plans were panning out. Dimitris and Angela displayed a real touch of class that I haven’t experienced with other recruitment companies. The team at Rely Recruitment are true professionals and great to deal with.

Having secured my role at Godiva Chocolatier through Rely Recruitment, I found Angela to be a passionate and tenacious individual within the recruitment industry. Her undoubted hard work and positive attitude contribute to a very obvious skill of establishing productive relationships with both clients and job seekers. I would recommend Angela wholeheartedly as a very effective member of his industry.

From the first contact I knew that Dimitris would not only help me in my search for a job but also bring me his experience and advice to improve my chances.

He is definitely one of the best recruiters I have been in touch with

A friend recommended Rely Recruitment so I contacted Dimitris. He who asked if I was free to meet up for a chat at his office; within a couple of hours I was discussing what I wanted face to face. He is easy to talk to, extremely knowledgeable on luxury retail, friendly and professional. Within a few weeks I received a call from Dimitris for a position he believed I would be suited for, asking if he could send my details forward to his client. The brand and position was exactly what I was looking for so agreed, he then organised an interview for me.

Throughout the process he supported and guided me via e-mail and phone, providing advice to help me with my interview.

I would communicate with him both during and outside working hours (nights / weekends) he is very flexible. I would recommend Rely Recruitment as professional agency for anyone looking for a fast and effective career move.
