Lumino conducted themselves with enthusiasm, understanding, and professionalism. I was very appreciative of the effort provided; including due diligence, qualification of candidates, and providing a personal perspective of how candidates lined up to our objectives. You never lost focus on understanding who we are as a company and the type of candidate that we were looking for.  A true business partner.

It is my pleasure to recommend Ellen (Lumino) for a five-star recruitment process. Ellen is highly professional and also shows a great personal interest in the candidate she I working with. Ellen has excellent communication skills, schedule meetings, follow up, provide feedback, and are always reachable during the process. So thank you Ellen for having faith in me and guiding me through the process, to what hopefully will be my dream position within the cannabis industry.

Lumino has provided an excellent service. Ellen was reachable every second of the process and informed me instantly and regularly about each step we have taken. Many thanks for that and no wonder that I‘m very pleased with my new career opportunity in CNS/Cannabis business. Well done!

As a small business with huge growth potential and tight margins, it was important to find not only a candidate with the unique blend of skills required, but also the right personality and to do so on a tight budget.AJ was quick to share candidates that met the brief perfectly and provided perspective from an industry POV. Professional, efficient and easy to work with, he's made his life hard because I now need another candidate of a similar calibre and he has set the bar very high with the first placement.Lumino will be our first choice for recruitment in this space.

When they first approached me as a candidate, I felt that they really wanted to know me. They asked the right questions in a very casual way, so I did not feel under scrutiny. They know what they are talking about and they only absorb more knowledge each day thanks to the way they communicate and network. Lumino absolutely walks the walk, cannot recommend them enough!

It is rare to find recruitment that strives to align your virtues with that of an employer. Still rarer to have one that is interested in building professional relationships that go beyond a given contract. Lumino is nothing short of the finest agency that I've had the pleasure of being a candidate for.Nikita in particular helped navigate a seemingly impossible transition to a dream role: COVID and the conflict in Ukraine were serious barriers to entry. He was steadfast in answering my many calls despite the timezone differences. Better yet, he treated me with grace and humility acting as an experienced professional in the cannabis industry.I write this review a few months into that dream position - couldn't be happier.

Have worked very closely with AJ for a number of weeks to find our UK company 2 sales representatives for ATAMI in the USA.Now I have worked with many recruiters before, but it was never like this. I’ve never had a set of absolutely top candidates like this. Never experienced support like this from beginning to end. Constant follow-up, constant engagement and genuinely good advice about the candidates, about the way of working, contracts, salaries, expenses, the lot. The engagement went much further than just finding the candidates. It also included linking me up with the right partners to set up what’s needed to onboard and ‘operate’ staff in the USA as a UK-based company. AJ thought along, contributed and helped me out every step of the process. Absolutely brilliant. Fast paced in the most positive way possible, genuinely caring and very high quality. A very big thanks!

Lumino have been an incredible asset to the development of our firm. Every single one individual introduced to us by them have been a win. I deeply value our relationship with the first HR agency in the EU dedicated to a legal cannabis industry and highly recommend their services.

Lumino and its Team are a really good reality that cares about adding value to the companies they work with! AJ was available whenever I needed him, he took care to provide me with all the information and details I needed. He followed me through the recruitment process without hesitation, always available to answer my questions! He was really my point of reference in everything and gave me the opportunity to change my life and work for a company I already love! I recommend Lumino to everyone and if you have the pleasure of being followed by AJ send my best regards! Good luck to all!
