We have celebrated our 24th year in business anniversary in time-honoured style by presenting our Temporary Worker of the Year Award to Colin Langdale.

Commenting on receiving the award, Colin said: “I am thrilled to receive this accolade, being recognised for my efforts, particularly during these testing times is a great feeling. After being made redundant from my job of 34 years, 10 years ago, I registered with 2 large recruitment agencies and I soon realised that I was ‘just a number’. I then registered with Elite Personnel who had supplied temps to my previous employer and their personal approach, constant communication and frequent visits meant that my 3 week placement lasted 18 months! Deborah actually came to the rescue when my summer holiday request was declined by the company where I was working and she helped with the negotiations to eventually have the request approved.”


Managing Director, Deborah Austin added: “We have been running these annual awards since 2001 as we feel it is so important to recognise and show our appreciation to our temporary workforce. This year, more than ever, this award feels very poignant. It is without doubt that 2020 has brought challenges to businesses of all kinds and I am incredibly proud of how our temporary workers have all risen to the challenge and worked hard for our clients. Colin is a truly deserving winner, he is reliable, dependable, punctual, conscientious and hardworking, and it is an absolute pleasure to have Colin as part of our team”


“At elite we are completely independent and have developed a unique consultative approach that sets us apart from other agencies and allows us to provide exceptional levels of support and service.”


“Integrity is key at Elite as our business is built upon the strength of our relationships. We firmly believe that trust, honesty and loyalty, teamed with professionalism, experience and respect are the foundations of any successful business. We spend time getting to know each person that we work with and it is this individual approach which gives our team its hugely successful track record in placing people in the right positions.”
