Take a look at what our clients have to say

  • Chloe has been one of our main contacts at Rotherwood Recruitment for a number of years now and she has always impressed me with her efficiency and professional approach to all our requirements, which can fluctuate greatly. The staff she has sourced has been good quality in what I see as a difficult market place. Nothing seems to faze her and no matter what issues I present I can always expect a bright courteous and honest response.

  • Chloe has been doing a great job supporting the needs of our business, always with a sensible attitude to getting the job in hand done and always in such a pleasant manner. Chloe has helped us grow as a business by providing us with quality staff, many of which have become valued full time employees. Many thanks Chloe and keep up the good work.
    Head of Manufacturing
  • Samantha has been great for our company as our dedicated Recruitment Consultant. We can rely on her and Rotherwood to provide a great service including setting up operators to come and work for us at very short notice. Samantha comes across professional, enthusiastic and has a passion for her job. Looking back at the service we have received Samantha takes pride in her role and strives for success. I recommend Rotherwood Recruitment and Samantha to any potential clients without hesitation.
    Despatch Supervisor
  • After being made redundant in 2015, I signed up with Rotherwood. Within one week Spencer called me to say he had a position that matched my skills in relation to my previous work and CV. Spencer was very understanding, polite and helpful. As promised a week later I started the role, I was called on the morning of my new job to wish me luck and to make sure I found the company ok. Also I was called at the end of my shift to check I enjoyed the role. After a 12 week period I was offered a full time contract a year later I was promoted to Manufacturing Supervisor and part of my role is to liaise with Rotherwood regarding staffing. The service Spencer provides is excellent. He has shown commitment in finding the candidates that match the specified criteria of which now more than 80% have gained full time contracts. He is supportive, friendly and helpful. On the odd occasion a person has not met out expectations Spencer has dealt with this in a professional manner. He has collaborated with our organisation to improve the way the timesheets are filled, provided CV’s when required, has a positive attitude, provides and asks for feedback on a regular basis. I can honestly say from an agency point of view and that of a supervisor Spencer is a credit to your organisation. He has excellent people skills and is committed to providing an excellent service that meets the expectations of the people with the agency as well as our organisation. Thank you for your continued support.
    Manufacturing Supervisor
  • We have experienced an unprecedented upturn in work since January. One of the issues we have is labour especially with the constraints of working away and needing CSCS cards etc. You always find us what we require, communication is good and most of the candidates we receive are of very good quality. I look forward to working with you guys moving forward.
    Operations Manager
  • When we decided to relocate our business from Amsterdam back to our home town of Burnley we obviously needed a brand new team. I got in touch with a few local agencies but due to the enthusiastic approach from Samantha I struck up exclusive (as we came to a good agreement on price) with Rotherwood. We advertised a number of positions and even though only one was employed through Samantha she was and is still always thinking of our business and is keen to forward any suitable applicants our way first.
    Operations Manager
  • Rotherwood have been our nominated agency for a number of years for our flexible workforce. As an internal recruiter for the business I have found Chloe to be diligent, hardworking, easy to work with and honest which are qualities that are key to the success of our recruitment strategy. Given that recruitment is a people focused industry, there are occasions where we naturally encounter issues but Chloe personally resolves these and offers a solution. She has even driven down early in the morning to our site to ensure that a new starter arrived on time. We are a lean manufacturing site and so it is vital that we are reactive to change. Chloe’s efficiency and can-do attitude is a great asset to our business and greatly assists my personal workload. Rotherwood provides more that ‘just’ a compliant temporary staffing solution. They treat our business with respect and have a thorough understanding of what our expectations and business needs are.
    HR Manager
  • After contacting Rotherwood to help with our recruitment difficulties, I have always been dealing with Spencer. From our first meeting I have always found him to be very professional and a positive can do attitude. Our reason for using a local supplier is the personal touch and understanding of what we require. Spencer has always met these requirements, especially the dreaded 6am phone calls, we need 4 more! Were he has always tried his hardest to fill the slots. Lately we have had some troubles in finding a certain skill set for our collections, where the turn over of manning has been high. Each time Spencer has frequently arranged at short notice to meet our business needs.
    Contracts Manager
  • I have worked closely with Samantha over the last 12 months; I have found Samantha very helpful and always willing to help our needs. Samantha is always helpful and available even out of office hours to help with our demands at short notice
    Shift Manager
  • AG
    We contacted Rotherwood Recruitment in April 2016 to ask them to assist us in filling an admin role that became vacant within our business. We had little or no experience of agencies and had always carried out in house recruitment by advertising in the local press.  This option left us inundated with applications and an amount that we were almost unable to manage efficiently given the demands of our business.Sally Fletcher visited our offices and I explained exactly the type of candidate we were looking to recruit and our expectations.  Sally explained fully how the process of finding a suitable candidate would work which was most helpful given my inexperience. Sally introduced us to various candidates by the way of forwarding their CV’s and also arranged interview dates for them to visit our offices.The process was very easy for us and Sally took care of what would have been a very timely exercise, co-ordinating interviews and finding candidates that would meet our expectations and fit in well within our existing team. We met some very interesting people through the process, but did finally find an excellent candidate to fill our vacancy as Office Co-ordinator and hope that we can work well together, as she will be an asset to our business.Should we ever have the need to fill any future vacancies, I would not hesitate to contact Sally and ask for her help.Thank you Rotherwood.
