"Very professional and friendly staff. Made me feel at ease in the registering process and was very quick in finding me a suitable placement. From that placement I got offered a full time position. I would highly recommend Juice Personnel to anyone if you are looking for temp or permanent working positions."

Claire Issott - Temporary to permanent worker

"Juice Personnel, is an extremely friendly, down to earth recruitment agency, whom I have used twice in my young professional career. The first being back in 2010, when I had first graduated and a little lost in the world of employment. They secured me a great temporary job, in which I had requested and in turn, developed in to a full time position. Since then, after moving on, traveling the world, I again found myself in the position of looking for a career change. I instantly remembered the amazing service and supportive nature of Juice and called them to help me find my current position. I cannot thank them enough for their helpful, friendly and supportive role, which they took in finding my new career and could not recommend them enough to others! Thank you Bex and the rest of Juice for all your efforts!"

Hannah Raison - Permanent Candidate

"After working in transport for over 45 years, mostly as a hgv driver, I took an early retirement package, and decided to work as an Agency driver. I worked for a few agencies and then joined Juice. It is like working for a family company. Everyone is approachable, and helpful, and happy. I have now worked for Juice for over 3 years. I work a few days a week between holidays. Although I swap my days around, Juice always seem to find me work when I want it, working for companies that I like working for, and at times that suit me. I have never had a problem with my wages. Although I am now officially retired, I plan to continue working for a few years yet, and I have no intention of working for anyone other than Juice. In my opinion, they are the best agency around. "

Ron Harrison - Class 1 Driver

"In terms of feedback, you kindly found me something in the interim and were always very efficient and helpful if I had an queries relating to pay, terms, start and end dates, ect. You also kept in touch with me by telephone and via a job board email, which was helpful, in helping me find work. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone and wish you well in your future endeavours."

Sam Bingley - Temporary Worker

"I found juice personnel extremely friendly and professional and made my job search a much more relaxed experience. Regular feedback and contact made me feel that I was really been looked after, and would definitely recommend them to friends and would use them again for a new job search and for recruiting in my role. Plus the girls were lovely!!!! Emma "

Emma Antsey - Placed in a permanent position

"“Juice Personnel is a great agency made up of dedicated and friendly staff. I highly regard their professional opinions and found them very helpful in supporting my search for a new role and will be recommending them to all my friends and family.""

Mark Banfield - Placed in a permanent position

"Rebecca has been thoroughly professional and supportive right from her initial call after I submitted my on line application, throughout the various interview stages ,offering help and guidance with my presentation and finally her call to tell me that I had been successful in securing my new position. She boosted my confidence at every stage!! To come in to see me on my first day with a bouquet of flowers to congratulate me was a really unexpected but lovely and thoughtful thing to do Thank you so much! "
