He was absolutely fantastic and blows out any theory of the test we give being difficult. His driving skills were excellent as was his attitude to being here and the whole experience.

Hi Nikki,

I will not require any of your staff for next week (currently). I will be talking to them all before tea break to explain. I need to forecast dispatches to NZ and OZ over the weekend and I will only incorporate our full time staff’s productivity. There is a strong chance that NZ and OZ will reject my forecast and demand more. If this is the case then I will let you know and hopefully the guys I have now will still be available????

I want to thank you for finding the staff I have now. They meet the criteria perfectly and get along with everyone at our company.

Please find attached the time sheet for this week (fax to follow).

Regards

Testimonial for Nick Graff of City Centre Recruitment in Weymouth and Yeovil. Nick specialises in the provision of temporary and permanent Commercial and Industrial staff

I have had the pleasure of using City Centre Recruitments service for the past 3 years. During that time, they have provided us with a number of temporary administration and telesales staff that have been of the highest standard.

When we had a vacancy open up for a specialist role in our senior management team recently, City Centre were my first port of call. They recruited for the role confidentially and in a professional manner, providing me with 2 candidates that fit the brief exactly.

I would not hesitate to recommend their service to businesses across the area and look forward to continuing my working with City Centre in the future.

4* Hotel Bournemouth

Testimonial for Rachel Wilson of City Centre Recruitment of Yeovil, Weymouth, Bournemouth and Southampton. Rachel specialises in the provision of chefs, hotel and catering jobs and candidates.

The levels of service I have received from City Centre and particularly Rachel Wilson have been excellent.

We have used a number of agencies and City Centre and Rachel have now achieved being our sole agent and have by far the success rate in placing candidates understanding our requirements and how we work.

Like many hotels we were faced with trying to find staff ourselves and facing the challenge of trying to deal with the plethora of recruitment consultants.

Historically we did have a panel of agents we worked with but after all the best staff recently sent, all came from Rachel and City Centre there was only one inevitable conclusion that all business was handed to City Centre,

I have always been very impressed with the quality of service I have received from Rachel as she is reliable, efficient and professional and this sets Rachel out from the competition.

Local Authority Department

Testimonial for Juila Lowe and Simon Thomas of City Centre Recruitment of Yeovil, Weymouth, Bournemouth and Southampton. Julia specialises in the provision of Industrial and seasonal jobs and candidates.

My experience with City Centre has been refreshing. Simon and the team have been very attentive to the personnel needs of our section which currently amounts to over £200,000 per annum. On one occassion they astounded me by reacting to my urgent 'out of the blue' request at approximately 6pm one evening for a competent admin person, totally different to my usual requirements to start the following morning. Sure enough, there waiting at my office the following morning was an agency person that fitted the bill

We have used City Centre’s service regularly over the last year as part of our expansion plan. They have proven themselves to be equally competent in finding both semi skilled and skilled engineers for us. I have been very impressed how they took the time to meet with  me, understand our product, workplace and skills we needed, even though we only had 1 vacancy to start with. If I need staff now, I only need to make one phonecall and am confident of getting the right staff

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all of your assistance over the past years.  Over the length of our agreement, you have worked hard to provide us with a flexible high volume service.  You have been understanding of the weeks when we have not needed to use your staff and have fulfilled bookings of anything up to 100 staff on the occasions where these events have arisen.  I can think of several successful events that have taken place, which would not have run smoothly without your assistance. All of these have needed in excess of 100 staff.

Having you come on site to assist with staff check ins has been really useful and not only does she look after her own staff, I can always rely on her to assist my staff with finding correct uniforms and changing rooms etc. You has always been available to us and will often work to fulfil last minute bookings, even if you are not working
