Other testimonials

Shaun you have been a very professional recruitment consultant, and your advice and guidance has been second to none.

I have worked with Pertemps for three years now.

Since I have been registered and working with Pertemps, Yusuf has been my contact in the organisation.

I have been agency for some time now, and during this period, I have been supported on multiple occasions by Graham Leatham. I wanted to share that throughout this time, Graham goes above and beyond to assist me in any issues I have, whether this be hours, submission of forms or mileage and in ensuring payments are on time. He is a diligent worker and is always available or will call back to discuss any problems. Furthermore, he shares information on any roles that may be coming up that fit with my profile and work-based interests.

Whilst I would thank Graham directly, I wanted it known that he is truly an asset to your team and service, and it is a pleasure to have him as my consultant and link with Pertemps.

Paul, Supervising Children’s Social Worker

I must most definitely give praise where praise is due, as from the first day Bayan contacted me and introduced himself to me, he had a flare of confidence, a positive approach and very good customer care, which had me instantly liking this man’s dedication, professionalism and belief in himself.

Bayan asked me what type of role I was looking for, rate, location, etc. and said that he would do his best to meet my needs.

Just to say a big thank you to Pertemps for always helping me to find a good placement. Since I commenced working with your agency, the placements that you find me are always stable and enjoyable. You regularly check on me and ensure that I am happy at the work placement. When I needed to move, my consultant was prompt in setting up different interviews for me.  His advice and tips helped the process for me to become successful at the interviews. Where there were multiple job offers, you gave me sincere and genuine advice regarding which option to go for.

Presently I am at a new placement; I am settling and getting to know my team. The people seem very nice and the manager is pleasant. The placement is commutable and of close proximity; thanks to you understanding my requirements.

I would like to send some feedback about my recruitment consultant Bayan Rostami. Not only has Bayan been a wonderful consultant that was able to secure an excellent role, but Bayan has also been a supportive and friendly person throughout the entire selection process. Bayan was by my side, his positive energy, upbeat attitude, and support nature boosted my confidence that I was able to successfully pass the interview. He ensured I was fully aware of the role and attained the necessary knowledge of the organisation that I will be working with.

He informed me every step of the way in relation to updates of my application, and he communicated coherently and clearly with what I was required to do. I am extremely satisfied with the service from Bayan and I would strongly recommend anyone looking for YOT work to work alongside Bayan, he will definitely secure a job for you.

My consultant has been polite, helpful, approachable and supportive.

She was able to find me a position very quickly within a local authority and ensure I was paid promptly. She was great during the registration process and really supported me to ensure I was compliant and ready for work and are easily contactable and always gets back to me if I have a query.

Thank you for all your help during the recruitment process and for your kindness.

Thank you for your understanding during a difficult time, it was lovely of you to reach out to me. You have actually given me the determination to get back on track and see the light at the end of the tunnel!

I am writing to give some positive feedback regarding my consultant, whom I have worked with for some time now. He was the main reason for my decision to move to Pertemps.

I know my consultant to be very supportive, knowledgeable, respectful and reliable in his dealings with his candidates. I can rely on him to give me good and necessary advice to help progress my career.

I would like to provide feedback on the support I have received.

My consultant has been professional at all times. He is honest and followed through on tasks and actions that we discussed. I have been provided with interviews that are relevant to my experience. He is always there when I need a sympathetic ear and I like his positive, can-do attitude.

Thanks to the compliance team, you are really amazing and an asset to your organisation. Thanks a million for your help today.

I have worked with Jordan Lamothe for over a year. He possesses a deep knowledge of the social work sector which is invaluable when sourcing new roles. What I value the most is Jordan’s professionalism; integrity; speedy response to queries and his ‘can do’ attitude.

Jordan has prepared me extremely well for interviews and encouraged me to consider roles that would suit my level of experience – which has increased my confidence significantly. I have dealt with other agencies in the past and not had a great experience so it has been refreshing to be treated as an individual as opposed to being viewed as ‘a number’. I look forward to continuing to work with Jordan in the future.

I would just like to inform you how supportive my consultant Bayan has been to me on my journey to find employment.

I was about to despair, when my friend and colleague gave my details to him. He contacted me immediately upon receiving my number, and perked me up no end. His energy, drive and enthusiasm is catching.

I have worked with Vicky since becoming an agency worker in July 2015 and have always found her to be honest professional and helpful. I have worked with her to find various roles and also when as a manager recruiting.

I have recently experienced an alternative agency and am pleased to be returning to Vicky! When I hear people talk about Pertemps I hear them talk about Vicky with such positivity and respect – hard work does need recognising in all professions.

Nicola, Audit Improvement Consultant

Catherine has represented me as an agency Social worker since Summer 2018.

During this period, I have always found Catherine to listen to my requirements for a role; offer me professional advice and guidance; discuss openly with me any new opportunities and potential career options for me to consider; is reliable; professional and responsive to any queries that I may have.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your efficient response to all the requests from me since I started working with your agency in June, 2019.

I wish to state that this has been appreciated and I will recommend that colleagues who are looking to move on register with your agency.

Dan is a very proactive, and efficient recruitment consultant. He always keeps me well informed over job roles and all the required information for a role. Dan has provided me with excellent support and has found me job roles that have provided me with great job satisfaction. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dan as a Recruitment Consultant to any professional.

My consultant has been amazing! He works tirelessly to find the right contracts that reflect my professional skills.

His commitment is faultless – he always goes that extra mile to ensure my requests are met within a timely manner.

Sybil, Children’s Services Practice Manager

I would like to thank my consultant for being wonderful and supportive. He’s one of the best I have ever had.

I really appreciated his assistance during a really difficult couple of weeks, and am happy to say that has now been resolved.

Having been a permanent member of staff in Local Authorities for over 15 years, my personal circumstances resulted in me needing local, flexible work. Bayan was incredibly supportive of this and extremely attentive to ensure the transition to locum work when according to plan.

I have worked with Bayan for over 6 months and I have never once needed to chase him for contact or support. He is always available and a fantastic recruitment consultant to work with. I would definitely recommend him.

Michael, YOS and Youth Offer Service Manager

Catherine is genuine, honest and approachable. Her professionalism is second to none and this is the reason I wouldn’t use any other recruitment consultant. In my time as a locum social worker working with Catherine, I have been out of work for 0 days. Constantly presenting me new opportunity’s and always on hand to support.

I want to acknowledge the continued support, hard work and tenacity Bayan has shown me.

He always goes above and beyond, and I really appreciate him checking in with me.

I would just like to say a massive thank you for all of your support – from registering with Pertemps Professional to now. Over the last 2 years, Catherine Rogerson has always gone above and beyond to make sure I feel happy, safe and secure in my role, and if there have been any issues you have always made me a priority.

You are a star! I am really grateful  to have you as my consultant

I have been so impressed with Pertemps, right from my initial conversation with my consultant. He exceeded my expectations.

His communication has been exceptional at all times and he has always gone that extra mile in terms of customer service. I would highly recommend Pertemps.

I just want to say a sincere thank you to Yusuf, my consultant.

With his intensive support, he enabled me to regain my confidence following a difficult and dark situation.

I would like to thank my consultant, for the hard work, dedication and focus that he put into finding the role that I was looking for.

I signed up with a different agency around a month before lockdown, but they did not offer any interviews.

I would like to express my gratitude towards my consultant during a recent investigation that took place.

I was fully supported by the whole team, and was phoned every day to see how I was, and reassure me that everything would be OK. And it was.

I would like to thank you for the excellent service and support you provided.

When I first I contacted the agency, I thought finding a social worker role from abroad would be challenging and stressful. After the first couple of emails, my initial thoughts had shifted and I am so happy that my friend recommended your agency to me.

I was so pleased to speak to Jenny at Pertemps. After I registered my details, I had two interviews and was offered both positions! I’m now looking forward to my start date, and it’s less than a fortnight since our first contact.

I can’t recommend Jenny highly enough. I’d like to thank her for her clear communication, for always responding to emails and phone messages and being patient with any questions or scenarios I had for her. She was super-friendly, helpful and encouraging, and clearly understood exactly what I was looking for.

I would 10,000% recommend Dan!

He is a brilliant consultant. Very thorough and informative about everything – no question is a silly question.

This is the first time I have used Pertemps and it’s been a really positive experience.

My consultant helped me secure the senior position I’d been looking for. He is very professional, stayed in regular contact, and is always pleasant and dedicated to his work. He is also very responsive and ensured that the paperwork was processed quickly.

Catherine is an amazing consultant!

She worked so hard to help me find my new role and I’m really excited to be starting something new!

My consultant helped me get the job I needed! She stayed in touch since I started the job by emailing and calling me to obtain my hours for the week and she asks how work is going.

She was the go-to person for me when I was worried about my work contract renewal. Thanks very much!

I have a trusted working relationship with my agent, Vicky O’Flanagan, and have been with her for many years – even before she started at Pertemps.

I find that Vicky goes above and beyond for me even when I am stressed. She is always professional and has a cheery attitude. She is one of the best.

My consultant provided me with excellent service during the recruitment process. He ensured that he understood my current skills, roles and experience. The process was very fast and efficient and he ensured that I was aware of what the next steps would be. I was given great support before my interview and was confident that I was well prepared. The experience I encountered was highly professional and I highly recommend.

Bayan is amazing, he listened to my requirements and was able to deliver what I wanted. With first-hand experience, he offers realistic advice and is always available to help. He is very professional but also down to earth and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend him if you’re looking for your next role.

I’d like to thank my consultant once again for finding me work, he said what he was going to do and did it.

I really appreciate his confidence when I thought I did not get the job in question – he reassured me not to worry.


Angelica, OT Assistant/Care Manager

I want to say a big thank you to everyone involved in finding me a social work job.

I appreciated his guidance in completing my CV and with preparing me for my interview. My consultant sent me research and relevant information that was invaluable.

I have been represented by Pertemps for some time now. I have been approached by many other agencies to represent me, however the level of service, regular contact and professionalism received from has been exceptional.

I feel very valued and always listened to. I honestly believe that Pertemps consultants always went the extra mile for me. They have worked exceptionally hard, especially in these difficult times. Not only their expertise and professionalism, but their politeness and consideration in all matters.

The service is excellent and my consultant always calls me if I need anything. I should add that he always keeps me updated regarding pending roles and has a very polite and professional manner.

It has been, over the years, a pleasure to work with him.

Catherine Rogerson is excellent! She arranged an interview for me within a week, and I got the position!

Bayan is an amazing consultant. He was able to secure me a permanent social work job very quickly after I had a career break for 7 years.

Bayan is a very professional, honest, hardworking consultant with excellent communication. He always kept me informed of what he was doing, never made any false promises and always delivered on what he said he would do.

I want to compliment the Pertemps Social Care team on the exemplary service that you have all provided. They went above and beyond what was required and I am very grateful.

The communication and response times to questions I have put me at ease throughout this transition.

I look after Locum and Permanent Recruitment for Qualified roles within CSC and Adults for the London Borough of Bromley so as you can appreciate I am extremely busy on a day to day basis.

Since working with Pertemps over the past 12 months, my consultant has been extremely proactive to support the London Borough of Bromley’s recruitment needs. He works very quickly and efficiently, nothing is ever too much trouble and he keeps me in the loop and updated as requested.

Our company required a supervising social worker and my consultant was able to quickly identify some excellent candidates for the vacancy.

Having conducted telephone interviews, we were able to shortlist and confirm our interest in a suitable candidate. Everyone has been very helpful throughout the process, and I would definitely recommend Pertemps’ services to anybody looking to recruit permanent staff.

I am writing to recommend the services of Pertemps Professional Recruitment.

I have been using them for the recruitment of qualified and unqualified care in 14 boroughs and have always been completely satisfied with the amazing service they provide.  They are passionate and professional and always work hard to fulfil the needs of the local authorities they are working with.  They have a very good reputation in the world of social care and locums respect the market knowledge they have as a team.

I have been working with Pertemps for several months now. Pertemps have provided me with social workers for our London based clients on a regular basis. It has been a pleasure speaking with the team as they are extremely polite, professional, and always provide a quality service.

It has been a pleasure to work with Pertemps. The consultants show an unusual level of professionalism and are always willing to push that bit further to provide the right candidate for my team.

I am impressed by the support I have received, and by my consultant’s receptiveness to my feedback and queries. I highly recommend working with Pertemps Professional Recruitment.
