Some Lovely Words from Flowerona Job Vacancies Board Advertisers

We only needed one month of advertising to be inundated with the highest quality applicants. As always, Rona is a professional and a real pleasure to work with. From now on, all vacancies will be advertised on Flowerona!” Katie Bridges, Mary Jane Vaughan

“We were so pleased to have used Flowerona to fill our Event Planner role at Hayford & Rhodes. It was so easy to add our vacancy with a personal touch with Rona and was live within a day.

We’re growing all the time, and so we’ll definitely look to use the Flowerona Job Vacancies Board again.” Olivia Harvey, Bloom & Wild

” We only advertised on your blog. I thought I would give Gumtree a miss and try Flowerona solely, as I’m tired of getting over a hundred applications with only a handful being relative to the position. We didn’t get as many responses to the advert as we would normally, but the quality was far superior. And we were lucky to have a tough decision between three ladies. Quality over quantity always…as time is of the essence in a busy floral business. I’m so pleased with the response. We will give advertising our shop manager’s position solely to Flowerona and see how we get on.” Leanne Roberts-Hewitt, Wildabout

I recently advertised our floristry position with Flowerona and recruited an excellent new member to the team.  Recruiting in the flower industry used to be difficult; but I now have confidence that I am spending money (albeit a very small amount of money) advertising to get a real audience of florists and therefore real potential recruits; the value of the service is great.  I highly recommend Flowerona.”  Jen Hollingworth, Flowers by Suzanne

“We were so pleased to have our job advert displayed on Flowerona Job Vacancies Board.

So a huge thank you Rona for your help and for creating your wonderful site. I would highly recommend advertising on here, whether you’re looking for a job or looking for staff. It’s hard to find something similar elsewhere for florists.” Jilly Greig
