What people say about us

Recruitment Team Lead

​"We engaged with Search due to a sudden large growth in our business. Search arranged assessment days which involved booking off site venues, pre-screening candidates and booking interview slots.

During a 3 month period, Search helped to reduce our vacancies and we continue to have an on-going relationship with the company."

​"I have used Search for over 4 years and found them to excel in both the provision of qualified, experienced support workers and administrators. We have built a very strong relationship with Search in this time.

Their response time, the quality of the staff provided and the friendly, professional and, above all, extremely effective nature of their consultants means that I expect our relationship will strengthen further in the coming years."

​"I have been registered with Search for 5 months now and I can’t explain how helpful they have been from the start- I couldn’t recommend them more.

They really do care about their agency workers. They placed me in a lovely care home, gave me regular hours and always paid me on the correct days for the correct hours."
