Kristian's Settling in Nicely...

How time flies! Kristian, our newest recruitment consultant, has been with us for 5 months! We caught up with him to see how he's finding life at Juice:

What have you enjoyed the most about working for Juice so far?

We’ve been on some interesting client visits so far which I’ve enjoyed! We recently got a grand tour of Production Park in South Kirkby, so we got to see all the props and stages that were made for the likes of Robbie Williams etc. A few weeks before, they were giving the same tour to Hugh Jackman of all people. Apparently I’m better looking though!

What’s Juice like to work for?

It's a brilliant company to work for, they really look after their staff and have fun whilst doing it!

What does your role entail day-to-day?

I work alongside Kelly in the Commercial department. Day-to-day I am either out and about speaking with businesses about their recruitment needs, or in the office finding candidates for those businesses and inviting them in for an interview. Or deciding what to have for lunch...

What do you think makes Juice different to other recruitment companies?

My recruitment background so far has seen me work for only large national agencies, so it was a completely different change for me to join an independent firm. Whilst I enjoyed my time working for those national agencies, I’m much preferring the ‘family feel’ of Juice. We’re an honest bunch of people that will tell you how it is! You could say we have a refreshing approach to recruitment.

Have there been any challenges?

Understanding Kieran's and Ian’s Barnsley accents has been my biggest challenge to date!

What has Juice got coming up that you’re looking forward to?

We’re one of the main sponsors at the Wakefield Hospice Annual Event this November, so I’m sure that will be a good night!

What do you do in your spare time?

My girlfriend and I had a son called Carter last year. He’s just turned 1, so most of my spare time is used making him happy, visiting play centres and swimming pools!

When I bag a pass for the weekend, you’ll find me with a pint of Strongbow down the local with my mates, or watching the football!

Keeping with the theme of recruitment, I think we put that onto CVs as ‘Family time and socialising with friends’!

What do you love about recruitment?

Mostly I think it’s the wide variety of people from all different walks of life that I get to meet on a daily basis. Whether that’s listening to clients stories about how they built their business from scratch, or candidates talking about what they’ve done in life – there’s always an interesting story!

We've hugely enjoyed having Kristian on board for the last 5 months. Here's to many more!

"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

"All I can say is my experience with Juice Personnel was friendly and proficient. In no time at all I was set up for interviews that suited my capabilities and requirements. 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

"From day one Juice Personnel have been very professional, informative and truly outstanding when searching and placing me in employment. From the moment I first walked through the office doors to meet with one of their representatives I have been nothing but pleased and extremely satisfied with Juice. They have managed to source a position close to home with outstanding credentials which I am extremely grateful for. I have found that Juice are by far the best agency I have dealt with in West Yorkshire and I would highly recommend them to friends, family or any business associates that may need form of employment. Although I have not been with Juice long, I know that the relationship can only blossom and go from strength to strength."

Richard Allen- Long term temporary

"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

"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 Toon - Permanent Candidate

""I approached Juice Personnel after having my maternity leave in 2015 to look for a more suitable role which would fit around my new circumstances. It was a pleasure to visit their office & meet with Claire, she made the whole process extremely easy which was such a relief after being away from the working environment for a few months. Within a week she had found me a great position & I continue to work for the same company. She was a great point of contact and offered fantastic advice and support every step of the way. Thank you Claire & Juice Personnel!""

Charlie O'Neil - Placed in a permanent position
