My name is Alicia Viera-Mohammed and I was introduced to your agency and specifically Mr. Dickie by one of my peers namely Mr. Douglas St. Hill. I contacted Richard approximately thirty (30) days ago with the expectation of simply being asked to submit my CV via email and possibly answer a few questions pertaining to salary expectations but this was not the case."Alicia Viera-Mohammed – May, 2014"
As a candidate for an Executive position, I found Progressive to be very helpful at every step of the process. Richard was both professional and friendly. He ensured that I was prepared and on-time for interviews, and then chatted with me soon after to gauge my assessment of the interview. At each step, I felt like he was in my corner."Robert M Boopsingh – 11th February, 2014"
My status as a returning resident to Trinidad and Tobago made the employment search somewhat challenging. However, it was a pleasure to partner with Wadikee on my journey towards finding a suitable HR position."Avelia Stewart –HR Manager - 11th February, 2014"

We’re here to listen and advise, and ultimately, to help our clients and candidates perform better. We believe in being open and transparent with candidates, providing honest advice on how to improve resumes, interview technique, as well as career advice on specializing in a certain field or switching career paths.
Traditional transactional recruitment tends to deliver candidates in the active space usually by advertising response or database search. However this approach does not tap into the pool of passive candidates, ie candidates not actively looking for a job and therefore not on agency databases and not responding to advertisements.
To deliver talent we believe that we must build relationships with specialist talent pools so that we are able to leverage such relationships to gain referrals to not just the most visible talent, but to the best talent. At Progressive, we adopt a community focused recruiting approach which builds relationships with all areas of the talent pool, which enables us to deliver the ‘best’ talent within the pool by activating ‘A’ grade candidates that the recruiter has built a relationship with or has been referred to within the community.
We are also big on referrals – qualifying candidates by referencing them with referees who have ideally evaluated their work. In addition we use evidence based interviewing techniques to further qualify candidates, thereby ensuring our client receives the best available talent for their vacancy.
