"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

"Wow, what can I say about Juice Personnel. Just that you are the ONLY agency that has ben honest and fair to me when I have been in need. I have always had swift responses, been offered fantastic opportunities and been provided with a friendly voice at the end of the phone too. When I lost my job you provided me with a temporary income that meant that I could worry a little less about accepting a job that I didn't want just to pay the bills, this was something I was passionate about. I cant really some up how I feel in to words, but a local, honest, friendly, but a professional company and without a doubt the best that I have ever come across and believe me, I have come across several in my career search. Your team are the only members of recruitment that I will allow on my linked in, think that's testimony to your company. Hope you can take something from the above."

Emma Hyman - Placed in a permanent position

"We have never used a recruitment agency before so needed an agency that understood what we needed and who we could build a long term partnership with. Juice have been great and found us a candidate who was a perfect fit for our business."

Northern Media

"I approached Juice personnel in October 2014 looking for some temporary work. They were great to work with and found me a placement right away. This initially started as a temporary contract. After a few weeks the company offered me a permanent position working on reception on a part time basis. Since then, my personal circumstances have changed slightly and I applied recently for another position within the company on full time basis as a HR administrator. I was offered the position on a 3 month trail, which looks like it is now going to go permanent quite soon. I will probably be working with Juice again now as I will now be responsible for helping with the recruitment for the company. I am looking forward to working with Juice again. I am really enjoying my new role and I would like to thank all at Juice for all their help in finding me a great job and career. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to friends and family."

Tracy Johnson - Long Term Temporary worker

"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

"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

" 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
