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.

Carole Shaw - Temporary worker

"After finishing university I was looking for paid legal work which is very hard to come by on a temporary basis. Juice were fully professional yet had a friendly approach to finding me a job and succeeded. I am now working in a field that I love and couldn't thank them more!"

Rebecca Beech - Summer Temporary Worker

"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

"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

" My experience of using Juice Personnel, during my job search was brilliant from start to end. They were polite, friendly and approachable. Nothing was ever too much trouble and if they couldn’t answer my queries immediately, they returned my call within the day. I felt as though they really cared about finding me the right position, to suit my circumstances. I would definitely use them again and would recommend their services. "

Fiona Shakesby - Placed in a permanent position

"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

"Juice Personnel gave me a chance when I didn't have good references, they put me on a placement where I was able to show my skills and get an up to date reference. I really enjoyed working with juice and Viki through out my placement. Thanks Juice!"
