Why Us?

With over 30 years in candidate and customer service and success in attracting and matching the best talent to the most rewarding jobs, we offer you a partnership that is based on honesty, integrity and professionalism and works hard to help you find a solution.

But don’t just listen to us. These statistics really do speak for themselves:

We aren’t perfect but we have a great success rate.  And we aim to get it right first time. In fact, the first candidate interviewed by our client is offered a position in 95% of our cases. In addition, over the past 2 years, 93% of our candidates have remained in their jobs or have been promoted up. Pretty impressive, we’re sure you’ll agree.

Furthermore, we match a candidate to fulfil a minimum of 85% of a job spec, ticking nearly all the boxes our clients label ‘must have’ and ‘nice to have’. As our knowledge grows, so do our successes; and we strive to continue improve.

Clients say our service is ‘outstanding’, ‘refreshing’, ‘professional’ and ‘valuable’.

Meet the Team

Hadie Perkas

Managing Director

An experienced Recruitment Manager with mainstream agencies (since 1999), Hadie recognised that a new solution to hiring challenges was vital. She launched Skylight to offer a unique service that enables growing organisations a discrete route to attract the best talent, to help them achieve their business plans. A graduate in Psychology, Hadie’s candidate sourcing skills are so thorough that she could have been a forensic profiler in a former life! Hadie has a warm and honest, straightforward approach that enables her to ask the right questions and manage expectations.

Idol: Anne Frank – the epitome of pure courage.
Most overused saying: “Something will turn up”
Top tip for jobseekers: Explore every opportunity. Actually, can I have two? People make decisions based on their emotions, so inspire confidence in them and make them feel they are making the right decision in offering you the job.

Hayley Menere

Talent Manager

Hayley sources our talent pool of candidates and brings recruitment experience since 2006, spanning a wide variety of roles and sectors. Candidates find her motivating, creative, and resourceful in her efforts. Equally, employers are impressed by her ability to listen, rise to a challenge, and identify strong talent matches intuitively. Fortunately, Hayley’s squeamishness dissuaded her from a career in midwifery (which was the job she wanted as a child!) She finds immense reward in other successful “deliveries” of candidates to their new employers!

Idol: Joanna Lumley – because of her success (and not just because she loves cats!)
Most overused saying: “Marvellous”
Top tip for jobseekers: Preparation before an interview is vital. You have never heard anyone say that they did too much research.
