Tradewind Recruitment

Well they started off so well - organised, friendly and helpful. However when I had to say I was unavailable for work on certain days due to my personal health (back operation imminent so working as and when I can, which I clearly stated upon registering with them) they actually shouted at me down the phone and then cut off all contact completely stating that I was 'messing them around' believe it or not! I thought agency/supply work was all about doing days here and there when you could? I've since changed agencies and cannot be happier. [...]

Bianca mead - She’s an amazing recruiter and very well trained at what she does. The few benifits I found joining Sugarman is that they always make sure I have a placement. Though the placements at time can be unsuitable for myself, Bianca (my consultant) has always pushed me through it and she’s constantly on the ball looking for schools which I’m more suited to. [...]
