This is a brand new role from an already established business, it's one where you can really 'make it your own'.

This is working in a 'down to earth' office, there are no internal politics, just a solid team that work for each other and enjoy themselves.

"Juice were brilliant at understanding exactly what I was looking for in terms of a career. After just one meeting with them, they had put me forward to the company that I have now been working at for 1 year, and already I have been given the chance to develop and progress. I have never been happier and I think the fact that Juice listened to all the little things I wanted from my next role is exactly the reason that I was placed so perfectly!"

Amy Cooper - Placed in a permanent position

"Working with Juice has been so beneficial and advantageous as they will do anything with open arms to find the most suited job for you as they did for me. In my opinion they are unlike any other agency I have been with. They are very understanding of your previous employment and future employment and take into consideration what sort of field and environment you are wanting to work in. If you're ever unhappy with anything they will listen to your problems and solve them as quickly and as efficiently as possible. They are all very polite and lovely people to talk to and I've never been so happy or so settled in a job 2 days in, that they found me. An outstanding recruitment agency very recommended!"

Emily Duggan - Temporary to permanent

"I have known and used Agency drivers through Lynn for about 10 years. I have found Lynn to be honest and trust worthy, if Lynn could not cover a slot that we needed she would say from the off and not keep us hanging around. We have all drivers assessed before they can drive one of our vehicles and this is an area where Lynn has always been good for us. She has always kept new drivers coming for assessment so we did not run short of drivers. We used to have up to 20 drivers a day, over 24 hours, seven days a week. I have used several agencies over the past few years and Lynn (Juice) has been one of the best and still is. Lynn has always given us a reliable service. So, if it's a reliable service that you are looking for, ring Lynn Mortimer and the team at Juice. "

All communication was both helpful and timely with a very polite manner. If I ever needed an agency again, I would be contacting Juice Personnel."

Anthony Matthews - Placed in a permanent position

"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 "

"Following an initial misunderstanding regarding role profile, the Juice team reacted swiftly to supply strong candidates for interview from whom we were able to select the right person for the job. They have also followed up the initial recruitment and demonstrated good commitment to delivering the right service for our business. I can recommend Juice Personnel."

I would highly recommend this company for anybody looking for new employment""
