Freshminds offered the most professional service, as well as shared candidates of very high calibre. They captured our requirements for the role and our culture-fit requirements very well and demonstrated care, attention, and elegance every step of the way.

Freshminds are brilliant at providing us with researcher with very little notice, they are flexible and the work produced is of a high standard. We are continuously looking to use Freshminds more as a team and they are discussed at most project kick offs, especially if a project involves lots of interviews.

They were super efficient and supportive throughout the entire journey. Unlike other agencies I’ve worked with, I’ve never had an issue with payment from FreshMinds. It’s hit my business bank account every Friday without fail for the last 3 months!

Over the 10 months I worked with Freshminds, when there was a need to contact either Amy or the timesheet team, everyone was very responsive.

We appreciate the resourcefulness of Freshminds in enabling us to meet our fast project turnover rate as well as project specificity. We are sure we will be working with Freshminds continually.

    Bruna Araujo, Multi-cultural researcher , Discover AI

  • ​​We engaged Edith and the team at Freshminds to help us on a search for a very specific individual combining both strategic and execution skills. We have done this after our organic search yielded a few applicants which we were not set on. Given the importance of the role we were seeking for the perfect candidate, both fit and competent.  The team at Freshminds helped us narrow a candidate list to a select few demonstrating a clear understanding of our requirements. We ended up hiring the top candidate who hit the ground running and was a great match with our culture. I am delighted to recommend the Freshminds team and won’t hesitate to use them again.
