Candidate testimonials

I would like to express my gratitude to Jemma Benson and Carol Boadhurst for an extremely efficient proccess. It was so seamless that I just wouldn't try another recruitment agency while Polytec Personnel exists. A big thumbs up and I would recommend you in a heartbeat - Agi.

I haven’t worked for an agency before, so it was a new experience for me. I met Jemma Benson at Polytec and she was very friendly and professional and told me all about what it is like working for an agency. I felt happy that I had all the knowledge that I needed to begin my new job and was very excited to start. Jemma was great at responding to my emails quickly and I know she is always there for help and support. I am very happy with the service I received and would highly recommend Jemma Benson. - Jenna S

My experience working with Lucy Mills and Polytec has been nothing short of brilliant, Lucy has made my transition into my new permanent position at my new job so easy and almost effortlessly, I have recommended to many of my friends and ex colleagues I know are looking for job change.
Lucy has been almost like an invisible mentor, talking me through first days at work and keeping me updated with plans/any updates as well as my transition into the new jobplace be it via quick responsive email or her excellent welcoming phone manner. I would definitely like to work with Lucy again in the future, can not recommend her enough! - Lee A.

Many thanks Jen, for your help over the year and a bit I have been with Polytec, it has been a very well run ,professional organisation and have no hesitation in recommending you to collegues. - Phil P

My experience with Polytec has been very good.The recruiter Jemma was very helpful,
Efficient and effective. They found me an assignment within three days. The Company where I have been sent is nice and people are very welcoming. A great agency that shows empathy and respect. Regards Luisa

I’d like to thank Polytec and Carol Broadhurst in particular for their support and encouragement during my job quest, and especially for some subtle re-wording of my CV which obviously had the desired effect and I’m happy to number myself amongst the employed once again. Thank you all. - Simon S

Jemma Benson at Polytec made the experience of applying for a new role easy and straight forward, Jemma was always at the end of the phone when I needed to talk to her and gave me regular updates including emails and good luck texts on the day. Jemma also gave me some good tips and advice for the two interviews which were greatly received. - D.F.

Highly recommend to anyone seeking a different opporunity or career path. Polytec provide a polite and friendly service, putting energy into finding the right job for you. Set up and orchastrated my move between jobs by finding me a more suitable role, providing me with support along the way. If the need ever arises again I wont hesitate going back. - Dan

I am very grateful to you for your help and appreciate your understanding of my requirements. I will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a job. Asking Polytec for help in a job search was a very positive experience again.- Piotr T

"...it is a refreshing change to deal with someone with some professionalism and manners, qualities sadly lacking by so many in your business sector" - Lee

In my experience Polytec have always been easy to approach & there is no hidden agenda,
they just want to do what is right for both the client & candidate - as a true agency should! - Cathy M

I was extremely happy, and very impressed indeed, from the moment that Jemma Benson, from Polytec, first made contact with me.
During my interview with her, Jemma was clearly very professional,and took the time to explain everything to me very clearly, and helped me to relax,as I was very nervous about applying for a new job.
I am deeply grateful to Jemma and Polytec in helping me, and I will certainly recommend Polytec to other people. - Viktor K.

I just wanted to say that I've found the level of service you offer impeccable both in 2015 when locating work in Cambridge and also this year finding work in Stevenage. I've had absolutely no worries about my employment situation since being in contact with you and if I dare say it, it seemed entirely stress free! Could not be happier with the outcome and will be recommending Polytec to anyone I know in the future that is looking for work. Many thanks... and if i find myself unemployed again you will be the first I call! - Dan C.

I'm immensely impressed the way you treat each case not only professionally but emotionally as well. I would highly recommend Jemma Benson. Dr M.Q.

A note to express my thanks for your excellent service. Not only were you able to place me as a contractor for many years but you have now found me a permanent position. In both cases the work you found was interesting, challenging, and entirely to my taste.

Your professionalism and courtesy are an example to be cherished.
Thanks again, Neil B.

Just like to say thank you to Carol and the team at Polytec for getting me work and making my move to Cambridge a good one. Fantastic support and paid on time week in week out! I recommend these guys to anyone looking for work! If I ever needed work again this would be my first port of call! Thanks again people and good luck in the future! - Keith C

Making an application to undertake Agency work was a new experience for me, and I was very anxious about the whole process. My concerns proved unnecessary. Polytec’s Carol Broadhurst was very welcoming, and knowledgeable about her clients. She made valuable suggestions regarding work assignments, and was extremely supportive throughout the whole process. Carole’s fellow team members dealt with timesheets and other issues, and were always polite, very professional, and good communicators. I received up-to-date information throughout the whole process. I feel extremely fortunate that I chose to seek work through Polytec, because through my assignment with them I have now secured a permanent position. I am truly grateful for everything that Carole and her team have done to support me through a very difficult and challenging time. If my circumstances were to change again, I would not hesitate for a moment to approach Polytec again for help. Thank you. M.B.

I'm really grateful for all of the hard work that you have put in for me. You were the only agency I registered with that has been helpful in getting me interviews.
--James

- I must say that you are a credit to yourself and to Polytec for the quick and pleasant responses, I wish that other agencies took a leaf out of your book.
--David

I am impressed by the speed and quality of the feedback that I'm getting from you, so far my contacts with your company have been the most positive experience of my communication with recruitment firms. I really appreciate your help and I'm very hopeful and optimistic about the prospects of my employment.
--V.L. Cambridge

Thanks again ..for being such a big help last year. Thanks for getting my foot in the door at ABC Co. I really feel like I have landed on my feet with this job and plan on keeping it. One last time, Thank you very much.
--TJ Cambridge

Nice to see you are proactive and doing your job, I was in the unfortunate position of being made redundant in '04... twice in the last two years....I had a number of agencies 'on-board', I didn't even get any initial feedback from them !! Okay, if they have no vacancies, thats one thing ...........but to not even provide any feedback is quite another. I would recommend Polytec just on my first contact.
--R.A.

"...by the way I couldn't think of anything I would change about the way your agency operates etc - it was refreshing to have an agency that didn't badger me, prod me or waste my time!
Good service - keep it up!"
--B.W.

Thank you for your support over the last months - I commend your professionalism and would recommend Polytec to anyone looking for a job.
--L.Jones

Thank you very much,I was very pleased with your companies service. In the year or so I have been up here I have used a couple of agencies and have been put off by them in every aspect. I am pleased to say you have restored my faith.
--S.B.

I would like to say that Polytec have been streets ahead of any of the other agencies with whom I have registered.
You are available to talk to, you respond to requests, you answer messages, you supply information on request and you seem genuinely interested in finding employment for candidates.
I am registered with thirty nine different agencies and all the rest are difficult to contact, supply no feedback (even negative feedback) and most of their jobs are not live.
--R.B.

I would like to thank you for all your efforts on my behalf, you were the best agency I used during this job hunt. I will certainly use you again and recommend you to others.
--K.D.

I would to thank you for your effort and your regular contact as you have been the only agency to show any interest in trying to assist me and keep in regular contact.
--Andrew

Thank you for your regular contact - you are the only agency that I contacted that ever took the trouble to even reply, so on that basis I will recommend you to anyone job hunting.
--M.P.

Thanks for all your help! I would never have got in without an agency putting me forward. You've restored my faith in the whole recruitment agency process!
--A.N.

Thanks again for your amazing service. I have your website in my favourites, hopefully I won't use it for a long time for myself, but maybe for my boyfriend!...
--C.G.

I just want to take this chance to thank you and your agency for your help. You already have many good comments on your website but they really are true. - I have applied to around 8-9 other agencies and not heard anything,- I always have to chase them up! You have also been very helpful and honest and I have felt well looked after.
--R.L.

"... In fact your efforts as my Consultant were first class, my contact and rapport I have no complaints about with you, I'd recommend yourself to anyone else who was looking for work in this sector."
--Richard

I really do appreciate all the work that you have carried out on my behalf in the search for a job and would not hesitate in recommending you to potential clients.
It's very refreshing to be in contact with a recruitment agency which keeps its clients informed and actively finds suitable jobs.
I have been on the books of a fair number of agencies recently and the service that you have provided is certainly not the norm in my experience, so for that I am very grateful.
--Tom B.

Thanks for all your help over the last few months and I shall definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is in a similar position to myself.

Thanks for all your help and I would certainly use your services again, hopefully not for a while yet, but would recommend Polytec to anyone.
--D.S.

You have been a great help to me and are literally the only agency out of nearly 20 who bothered to reply, let alone find me an interview!
Should I be in need of a job in the future I will certainly be in touch with Polytec and will be recommending your excellent services to anyone that I think you may be of help to.

The one thing you can quote me on is that I really liked the way you kept in contact on the phone, with the other agencies (about 8 of them) I had to constantly chase them for feed back once I had applied for a job.
--Steve

I am very impressed! Thank you,
--M.L.
