What is great service?

Communications, going the extra mile and delivering on your promise.

As I look back on 2014 you and your team have done all of the above, even under some hard to fill vacancies and some with very short notice.

Your communication has been excellent, applicants confirmed promptly, skills matched – you never let me down. This was great service.

Well done & thank you to you and your team – you should be proud.


Kind Regards

I felt it was time I sent you a little message to convey my grattitude for all the hardwork that you have put in to ensuring my team are always fully supported.

I have been in my position as group head chef of the Renishaw contract for around 2 years now and there has been several occasions where I could probably say that you have saved my job by providing candidates that have been extremly confident, competent & professional.

It goes to show the meticulous hard work you put in to ensuring you have the right candidate/skill match. It speaks volumes for you.

I know that for my duration here I have always been able to depend on you for your excellent service and that has been a huge stress off of my mind.


Thank you once again.

Many Kind Regards
