I have worked with Proactive Personnel as a recruitment partner for over 15 years. Having worked with other agencies over the years in various organisations, none have matched the quality and consistency of service provided by Proactive. They have become a trusted provider and I would use them again for that all important peace of mind. This has been based not only on their level of service but also on their honest and genuine approach. They continually deliver what they promise and are always upfront and honest regarding meeting our expectations and timeframes which helps enormously when running and coordinating a busy and demanding operation. Proactive Personnel are adept at fulfilling immediate vacancies as well as volume bookings and communication is second to none throughout the recruitment process. Be it Temporary staff or Permanent placements – they go above and beyond to supply quality candidates who meet our expectations and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations as a first class recruitment partner and equally as an agency to find new career opportunities.

I have been with Proactive Personnel for two years & can honestly say they are one of the best agencies I have used. Unlike most agencies they actually get back to you rather than just get numbers on their books. They found me a great placement which I love and supported me through the recruitment process. During my placement my designated consultant has always been on hand if I have had a query or issue & has resolved these in a timely professional manner.  I would definitely recommend Proactive Personnel as an agency that find you valid positions and look after you whilst on the placement!

Joining Proactive Personnel was the best thing I have done in my working career. The Commercial team took the time to get to know me and all my strengths and weaknesses, not just looking at me as a CV or name.  Within days they had me placed at a well know company albeit on a temporary contract, however this still offered me stability and many benefits.  While I was within my placement they found me a position within a well-known company with an immediate start required. I have been at this company now for 3 month and have recently been taken on permanently, none of which would have been possible without the support from Proactive.  I am very lucky to have found the girls at Proactive; my confidence has been boosted massively within the recruitment sector, as there are a lot of agencies out there that are after their own needs instead of yours.  I myself have joined several and never receive the service that I have had from Proactive, especially the Commercial girls. Without them I wouldn’t be where I am today and looking forward to a bright future with an ever expanding company.  It has been brilliant to work for an agency that wants you to progress and succeed in any career you choose.  Thank you Proactive and Thank you to the Commercial girls.

I have been working in collaboration with Proactive Personnel for a couple of years now and haven't been disappointed. The Dental Nurses that they supply have been of an excellent standard; not once have any of my dentists had any issues. All of the Nurses have been hard working, friendly, punctual and fully trained.  Proactive also offer a great service to practice Managers. Personally I like how I can call up at any time as they have a 24 hour phone line, but when it's more convenient, I can send them a text and they always get back to me almost straight away. Proactive are my first port of call when I am need of a Dental Nurse at short notice or if I require any cover in advance.

I popped in on the Friday to enquire about vacancies and started work on the following Monday, Never a pay-packet missed or an enquiry unanswered. Thanks to Proactive I now have a fantastic job. I would recommend anyone to give them a call or drop by for a visit.

Industrial Candidate

I confirm that I have dealt with Proactive Personnel on a daily basis since joining our company in 2011, during which time they have provided my business with excellent support in the areas of supplying agency workers for all departments within the factory and also administration support within the offices. Their work has been a major factor in keeping our productivity on schedule and meeting delivery targets. Proactive respond quickly to my requests for support and fulfil all vacancies whether permanent or temporary, in a very timely and professional manner. I can confidently recommend Proactive Personnel as a solid and reliable supplier and are experts in their field. I would be happy to discuss the matter further should the need arise.

I have worked with proactive for a number of years now, since being made redundant from my last job and it has been an excellent partnership.   I have a great working relationship with my account manager, who has at all times handled me very well, both personally and professionally. She has given me all the work I have needed - both temporary and permanent contracts - and I have been very pleased with the service from her and the agency under her leadership.

I would just like to show my appreciation to one of your employees who has been absolutely outstanding with me in trying to find employment. The communication skills from your commercial consultant have been second to none. I secured an interview within two weeks and during this period she kept the communication process going, informing me on what was happening.  Please pass on my sincere thanks to this outstanding employee. 

Commercial Candidate

We have used the services of Proactive Personnel for over 10 years. We have always found the service to be excellent. The recruitment staff, in particular the commercial team, know exactly the type of candidate we are looking for and for this reason we don’t waste our time using other agencies or the job centre.  10 years on we have retained many of the staff who were first introduced to us via Proactive. Keep up the good work.

James, Client
MD – Waste Management Company

From the very start the staff at Proactive have been very precise with details regarding getting me an appointment with a reputable local company. After a successful interview and job offer, again I found the consultants very clear and helpful with their instructions on what I should do next. Many agencies have created their own negative remarks from the working industry due to lack of care and service to the candidates. Proactive Personnel however, in my honest opinion have been helpful and polite in finding me a placement and are always available to answer any questions relating to salary and the client.

Industrial Candidate

I have found Proactive Personnel to be an excellent Temporary and Permanent staff provider whilst working for this and a previous company. I have worked closely with Proactive Personnel consultants since 2005 and have always found them to be professional. Their tailored services are specific and relevant to the needs of our business. They were very informative and helpful following the introduction of the AWR. I would not hesitate recommending Proactive Personnel.

Rachel, Client

I was looking for work in the Birmingham region but couldn't even get to interview stage, until one of the Permanent consultants from Proactive contacted me and helped me achieve that.  With his positive attitude and excellent research skills, he managed to help me get a job within my first interview. 

Technical Permanent Candidate

We have worked with Proactive personnel for nearly a year now and are very happy with the service they provide our company. We are a specialist construction company delivering to the construction industry though-out the UK, so all our work needs to be of the highest quality, which is what we get with Proactive. They are responsible for providing us with a wide variety of drivers including Hi-ab & Moffett, Proactive understand the high standards that our company have and are most efficient in delivering an excellent service, they also have a dedicated 24hr out of hour’s service in case of emergencies they also check daily to see if everything is ok.  I would highly recommend working with them.

Kevin, Client
Transport & Warehouse Supervisor - Construction Distribution Company

I was out of work for two months and elsewhere provided little help outside of telling me to constantly email my electronic CV to one position after another and I made it to interview on almost none of them. It was deeply impersonal and a recent graduate's CV doesn't reveal much about their potential if they have limited industry experience. I was also hesitant to join an agency, as on two occasions I have attended an interview with a recruiter, filled in a few forms to secure their commission and never hear from them again. Proactive found me a placement very quickly and have been in regular contact with my employers and myself to ensure everyone's satisfaction and wellbeing. My lack of experience wasn't held against me and I felt that I was assigned based on my character and potential. I have been consulted about any and all changes in terms and I feel confident that when my current placement ends Proactive will be able to help me again. I would highly recommend Proactive to anybody seeking work.

Commercial Candidate

Our company has used the services of Proactive Personnel in our recruitment process - most recently in placing staff in our very busy call centre. We have found Proactive very professional in listening to our needs and providing the support we needed to fill our vacancies. They made visits to our sites and offices to see the business and how it operates and to give them an insight into what calibre of candidate we required. Being a recruitment agency local to ourselves we felt they understood the local conditions very well and were very well placed to fill our requirements. We are very satisfied with their friendly efficient service and would be pleased to recommend them.

I have worked closely with Proactive Personnel over the last 6 months and have found Proactive to have a professional and honest attitude whilst securing me a long term opportunity working on a Ministry of Defence projects across the Midlands and Shropshire.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Proactive Personnel to anyone looking for a new opportunity.

Technical Permanent Candidate

I have used Proactive for over 2 years and during this time they have sourced many good members of staff. All the team react quickly and efficiently to every request and go that extra mile to meet my requirements.

Nathan, Client
Production Director - Leading Furniture Manufacturer

I had graduated in May 2011, during a period of recession. I had applied for many roles in the engineering sector but had failed to even achieve interview status due to the huge influx of long term professionals applying for junior roles. I approached Proactive to look for temporary work whilst I continued to search for engineering roles. I applied by email and sent my CV. Within a short time I was called by the Permanent Technical Manager who was instantly friendly and easy to speak to, he wasalso sympathetic to my position. Whilst the work environment seemed gloomy he had an encouraging enthusiasm and immediately focused on my skill base and suitable roles. He presented me with an opportunity to work in an inspection role within an engineering company and invited me to the Proactive office again his enthusiasm and friendliness were very welcome and encouraging. We discussed the role in great detail which was very helpful when I interviewed. I felt he prepared me very well and gave me a great head start during my application process. I interviewed shortly after and was over the moon to get the job. Thankfully this job turned into a career as I soon joined the company as a project engineer and then moved into project management. The role has afforded me many memorable moments such as meeting and presenting to Royalty. Travelling far and wide including China several times, working with the world’s most prestigious car producing and motorsport companies. In the 4 years since I started the job, Proactive have always dropped me notes of congratulations and well wishes.  The meeting four years ago has helped to shape my career and I am ever grateful. Proactive’s Technical Manager is a very driven person with a winning personality and an infectious optimism. Furthermore he is very fluent in the demands and needs of the engineering sector.   

Technical Permanent Candidate

I would like to thank you for all the help and support that you have given me in my time here and especially your tenacity in helping us fill vacancies when others fell by the wayside. I have really enjoyed working with you and hope that we can work on another project soon.    

Karen, Client
Quality Manager - Multinational Manufacturer

I have been with Proactive since 2011 and found them to be an excellent agency who have treated me with respect and empathy and have never let me down.  Every single time I have been in need of a job, they have found something ideal for me – literally within days.  Each job has been different, some temp to perm and others just temporary.  They have even helped me when I broke my leg and was needed for a temporary job for two weeks but could not get there – they provided me with a lift for those two weeks.  I do not believe there is another agency on the planet who would have done the same.  For anyone needing an agency who looks after their best interests, is absolutely professional in what they do and acts with the utmost integrity, you really could do no better than signing up with Proactive Personnel in Telford. 

Commercial Candidate

Fantastic, professional and accurate service. Happy to deal with our driver needs.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to provide you with some feedback for our Account Manager from Proactive.  I’ve only been with our Company for 8 weeks and since working with our dedicated Account Manager from Proactive for the contact centre, I have found her extremely professional and supportive.  She has a positive but professional approach and nothing is too much trouble for her candidates and clients.  I hope you don’t mind me emailing you direct however, I know we always received constructive feedback, but she really has been a GEM working with me.

We worked with Proactive on recruitment for a multi skilled engineering position. Proactive were very helpful and took a positive approach to sourcing suitable candidates and working with us to determine the key skills and experience required to fill the position. They kept in touch throughout the process and were always keen to learn our feedback. I will certainly be in touch with them for future recruitment.

Steve, Client
Maintenance Manager - Large Manufacturing Plc

 I recently approached Proactive Personnel to fill a position I had for a multi skilled engineer. They were professional from the outset and throughout the process. They acquired a detailed description of the skills I required for the position. Then forwarded a substantial amount of CV's of candidates that met the criteria I had set. They continually kept in touch throughout the interviewing stage to discuss feedback on the candidates. I would recommend Proactive to anyone with a position to fill and they will be my first port of call for any future roles that are my responsibility to place.

I have been dealing with our account manager at Proactive for some time now and she has been a very attentive and dogged individual.  She always ensures the temporary workers sent arrive on time and any follow up issues are met and dealt with.  She is the reason I currently only use Proactive to look for temporary workers in Telford rather than any other agency.
