elite testimonials

Sharon Vernon - Temporary Worker

“Elite is a very well run organisation and very welcoming to a new temporary member of staff.  I was treated with the greatest of respect.  There isn’t anything I can think of to improve your service.  My assignment met with my expectations.  I would definitely consider coming back to elite and recommend their services to friends, family or a new employer”  Sharon Vernon

Kath Lynch - Placed Permanent Candidate

“I was very impressed with elite personnel.  I found everyone to be very friendly and professional.  I have no suggestions to improve.  I was lucky enough to get an interview with the first vacancy and I accepted the job but the job was relevant to my requirements.  The information provided for my interview was very useful and informative and I have no suggestions to improve this, or any other areas, as I was very happy with the process.  I would come back to elite and have already recommended them”  Kath Lynch

“The service provided to me was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for any of the team and it was all done to a high and professional standard.  All emails and correspondence relayed too efficiently and I was always kept in the loop.  I cannot praise elite enough for helping me secure the permanent post.  The service provided to me was 10/10 so I cannot point at any area that I think needed improvement.  I would 100% recommend elite”  Placed Candidate, Jade Martin

“Unlike some other recruitment agencies I’m always happy to hear from elite as they don’t put pressure on the company for sales but they do support us as and when their services are required. We know when dealing with elite that they will provide us with a small number of good, quality candidates rather than bombarding us with CV’s, most of which will not fit the spec required, as numerous other recruitment agencies do”
Sarah – HR Manager – Client

“The team at elite are fantastic, all so friendly and can’t do enough for you. They take time to understand your needs and have always sent great candidates”
Maisie (HR Administrator) – Client

“Everyone was very friendly and helpful whenever I called or was called. Every service needs to look at improving on what they do but my experience of the services offered, I was more than happy. Although I only had one assignment, I felt that I was well informed of the role I was to undertake and knew that I would be supported if I needed any help. I would certainly consider contacting elite again and I would certainly recommend elite as I found them to be very helpful and kept me updated on current positions available”
Susan Frankish – Temporary Worker

“I was only interested in temporary work and found all the staff at elite excellent! No sure how you could improve your service – I had no problems at all. My assignments always matched my expectations, and I would recommend elite to friends, family or an employer”
Helen Groves – Temporary Worker

“Excellent process from start to finish.  Nothing was too much trouble and all calls/correspondence was dealt with promptly.  I can’t honestly think of anything I wished had happened differently.  The vacancy we discussed matched my requirements and the information that you provided for my interview was useful and informative.  I would definitely recommend elite and already have”
Joanne Stainburn (Placed Permanent Candidate)

“How can you improve on perfection? My assignments always matched my expectations, and I left elite after being with them for 4 years as I have now taken on a permanent part-time position. I would certainly come back to elite if needed, the ladies are so welcoming and extremely professional in everything they do. I would most definitely recommend elite”
Gillian Rae (Placed Temporary Worker)

“Our association with elite started over 10 years ago and during this time we have found the level of service to be of a very high quality. All the staff are very knowledgeable regarding requirements of our company and are helpful at all times. The quality of candidates for each role is consistently very good and we have found that initial direct contact with the manager concerned helps in receiving the quality CV’s that are required. As one of our preferred suppliers, we have found that elite meet with all our requirements and constantly put themselves out to meet our needs”
Richard (Client)
Senior HR Advisor

“Our company has used the services of elite personnel on a number of occasions. Due to our staffing requirements, I have direct contact with the staff responsible for both temporary and permanent, who understand the needs of our business and as a result, the quality of the candidates we have seen were of a high standard. They keep in touch on a regular basis either by phone, e-mail or by visiting our offices. All the staff are helpful and friendly, and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other companies who were looking for either temporary or permanent staff”
Alison (Client)

“The personal touch and care you put into matching the right candidate into the right role is what I like best about doing business with elite. It does not feel like it’s about making money. There is nothing else I would like to see, you provide an efficient service. Within the 10+ years I’ve worked with elite, I have not had cause to complain, only compliment”
Gareth (Client)
Human Resources Officer

“Professional, friendly, efficient and personal service we receive in placing candidates. Invoices are always prompt and consistent. Everything seems to be covered to suit our needs. I would definitely recommend elite and have done to my friends and family. Candidates placed with us permanently have become a great asset to our company and we have recently promoted two to management level”
Jackie (Client)
Customer Care Manager

“Elite is our first port of call if we have an administration requirement. We have had permanent and temporary staff supplied and have been very pleased each time. The invoicing is prompt and accurate. The team at elite are friendly and understanding and Deborah is a pleasure to deal with. There isn’t anything else that I would like to see, all very good. I would definitely recommend elite”
Debbie (Client)

“We always receive a professional and friendly service no matter what our requirements. Also, elite have a good understanding of the calibre of candidates we require. Yes, I would recommend elite, and I frequently comment to other recruitment agencies who contact us to offer their services, that we offer our vacancies to elite because of the excellent service we receive”
