Client Testimonials

“I would like to express my thanks for all the help you have given over the past few years with the quality of staff you have managed to source for our Company.

We have gone on to employ the vast majority both in the office and warehouse full time.  We find it easier to do temp to perm with you as it gives both parties the time to see if the candidate is suited for the position. Plus, a bonus for us, you do the initial interviews which saves us time and money, and by now you have good experience in our requirements.

We would always contact you first when we have a new vacancy as our business expands.

Many thanks for all your help”

 

J. Walker, Financial Director.


 

“I can recommend Rebecca at Essential as a recruiter who is committed to learning about our needs and building a long term relationship with us. She really listens to what we need, who is able to use feedback to continuously improve on the service she delivers. I would not hesitate in recommending others to experience a quality of service from Essential.”

 

H. Williams, HR Manager 


[Our client] are a manufacturing business, employing approximately 190 people, manufacturing a range of polymer based products, supplying into food, Pharma, oil and gas, semi-con and industrial applications.

We engaged with Essential Recruitment in October 2016, after we were dissatisfied with our recruitment agent. Following a visit from Samantha, who listened to our requirements, we started to use essential for our temporary recruitment needs.

Yasmin then visited our site to spend some time in the manufacturing environment, to understand our needs further, so that people could be tailored to meet our requirements.

Following the successful recruitment of approxinmately 20 staff, of which 25% have moved to permanent positions, I would highly recommend Essential as a provider of quality labour, and excellent communications through the whole process.

Highly recommended as a company, for supporting us and highly effective communication.

 

L. Metcalfe, Operations Director.


“Essential Recruitment, Ripley branch, have been working with Sheerframe and Masterdor (Previously LB Plastics Ltd) for more than 10 years. They have always provided a very professional service and taken time to assess our requirements and to ensure that the Agency staff they provide ‘fit’ our business.

The office staff are knowledgeable and take care in their recruitment process. Whether their remit is to send us temps as we need them daily, or provide us with a group of interviewees for temporary to permanent positions, the quality of candidates and the speed of the service is, invariably, spot on.

I have worked with many other agencies over the years, but rely on Essential as my ‘go-to’ agency and they very rarely let me down.

I can thoroughly recommend them.”

“During the course of 2012 the company has found it necessary to employ temporary labour on a number of occasions. Having had mixed results with a number of agencies in the past we were always nervous of the reliability of the this form of employment.

Essential not only supplied a good quality of worker, but also took the time to check the on-going attendance record and suitability of these employees. The paperwork involved was minimal and we found that the overall experience was much improved on the previous supplier. Essential keep in touch without pestering and I have foun them a decent company to deal with. I regularly get calls from other Recruitment companies all offering a variety of rates and skills but have now settled on Essential as our preferred option.”

“Over the past 24 months we have been using an on site agency to supply all our temporary labour at [client name]. However, due to an increase in production levels, our on site agency has consistently failed to source and provide us with suitable candidates. As a business we have had past experience in using the services of Essential Recruitment and decided to ask for their help in finding us “key skills”. Their experience and commitment in sourcing the right person is second to none and we have found that they are always willing to listen to our needs and go the extra mile. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Essential Recruitment to any business that is looking to continuously improve. In a market where there is a trend to over promise and under deliver, Essential Recruitment always keeps to their word!”

“At [Client Name] we have utilised the services or recruitment companies for many years, in the early days of this process we believed the various companies we used to be acceptable, however always thought that overall standards could be improved.

During a peak in our production, when our old provider could not meet the requirements, we gave Essential the opportunity to show us what they were made of! They quickly outperformed all previous agencies we had experienced and have been our preferred supplier since.

Over the proceeding 7 years their commitment to the site has never been in question, quite the contrary, as they are consistently introducing initiatives that result in improvements for all concerned at [client name]. These improvements played a major part in this particular site continuously topping the [client name] productivity and efficiency tables, all of which has been achieved by the On-Site Account Manager controlling the workforce to reflect our daily and seasonal fluctuations in productivity.

Our account manager always goes the “extra mile” to ensure our requirements are met and exceeded, he is viewed by all at the site as a valuable member of “our team”, without which we would not enjoy the success we have to date.

Essential’s commitment and dedication to their staff is second to none, this is highlighted with the esteem and respect in which they are help with the temporary workforce, resulting in extremely high retention levels no matter how our requirements fluctuate. I can only draw the conclusion that Essential values their workforce as much as they do us as the client… very admirable!!

In closing, I would happily recommend Essential Recruitment to any company as their service, commitment, delivery, honesty and integrity makes them an absolute pleasure to have as a business partner.”

“During the past two years I have been impressed with the standard of service provided to [client name] by Essential Recruitment.  When I have required temporary staff at short notice they have responded in a prompt and professional manner fulfilling our staffing needs sometimes at very short notice.

I have two long term temporary office staff, Janet and Becky who have been with us for 18 months and a year respectively, and I couldn’t be more pleased with them.

I contacted Essential, explained my staffing requirements, they advertised, interviewed and I was presented with an array of CVs of candidates to choose from.

Essential Recruitment are always available to help should I have any queries and offer continued support to both their employees and myself.

Over the last 14 years in my role as Office Manager I have used many recruitment agencies, and Essential have proved to be by far the best solution for our companies needs.  I cannot recommend them highly enough for Warehouse and Office staff.”

“I would like to take this opportunity t highlight the excellent service that Essential Recruitment have consistently delivered whilst representing Ping. From the outset, the teams at Essential were determined to understand and fully appreciate our expectations, even spending time working on the site themselves. This pro-active approach has ensured that the temporary operatives they provide have achieved the high standards we require from all of our staff.
They have never rested on their laurels and periodically review the service with us; therefore together we achieve continuous improvement.

Since our business partnership started, there has never been a situation where Essential are unable to supply us, as they always strive to have a pool of quality staff available for selection.
