Employer Testimonials

We’ve been using Premier Placement Services to source temporary packers and fryers at our factory since 2007 and have developed an ongoing, positive relationship based on reliability and trust. We can require people on a daily or weekly basis and sometimes at very short notice if we have unexpected absenteeism. Our business is seasonal too and they are always prepared for our busier times when they know we will require extra support. The fact that Premier Placement Services can transport agency staff to our factory in their own mini buses is a real advantage for us ensuring everyone arrives together, at the same time. In addition, we know that their candidates will have had the basic food hygiene and health and safety training before reaching us too. Thanks to the fast and friendly support we get from them, we are able to keep our production on schedule.

Factory Manager

Eaton Williams and myself personally, have worked with Premier Placement Services since 1996 and have selected them as our first choice for all our temporary recruitment needs. Initially we worked with two-three different agencies but based on the excellent service they have provided from day one we now only use Premier Placement Services. They always send us reliable, experienced staff and the level of ongoing customer service we receive from Jonathan and his team is exemplary. Any issues are resolved immediately and we can count on the team to ensure that we have a workforce ready for deployment as and when we need it. They provide a professional service that rivals any other recruitment agency we’ve used before and we have great confidence in the team and their candidates.
