Testimonials

"Hi ladies Just to let you know that I have accepted an offer of permanent employment this afternoon so I will no longer require your services. Thank you for everything over the past couple of months, I am really grateful for the temp placements and interviews you have sourced for me. "

Fiona Baker - Registered Candidate

"I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Juice Personnel for their assistance in helping me gain my recent employment, in particular Resourcing Consultant Viki Freeman who was very professional, extremely helpful and did an excellent job in representing me to a prospective employer which led me to successfully gain an interview, which ultimately resulted in a job offer. Viki always kept me up to date with how things were progressing, unlike previous recruitment agencies I have used where I was the one doing all the chasing for progress. I would also like to mention Kelly Smith who again with great professionalism was very helpful to me. Once again thank you, I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for future employment to try Juice Personnel."

Jayne Noble - Placed in a permanent position

"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

"If it hadn’t been for you guys and your powers of persuasion I’m quite aware that I wouldn’t even have got an interview, never mind an offer. I had been for interview with a number of agencies, both in Wakefield and Leeds, but have to say Juice was the only one which I felt understood exactly what I was looking for, despite my qualifications. It was also the friendliness which I loved – you almost make candidates feel they are part of your team. Viki has been great – keeping my morale going at the beginning when I was waiting for decisions!! "

Carol Taylor- Temporary to permanent worker

"I have worked for Juice Personnel now for 15 years. They have supplied me with work for 95% of that time, when requested. If I have had to give back word on shifts, as long as I have I gave good notice, they have always understood and not chastised me. The staff have always been respectful, as have I, and I have always have had queries handled swiftly and to my satisfaction. Thank you to all staff for your professionalism and most importantly, paying on time all the time with no hassle. It's a pleasure to work for an agency you respect, and are respected in return. A real team spirit. I would recommend anyone to register with this agency, whether you use it or not, they will always be there when needed."

John Keating - Class 1 Driver

"I found Juice Personnel and their staff to be extremely helpful with my job search. I was kept fully updated on any changes to my application and on any other potential vacancies. I have recommended Juice to friends colleagues and would recommend their services again. Great team of people."

Kirsty Hewson - Long term temporary worker

"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
