See below for what some of our clients have to say about us
"I have employed the services of Gill Cooke Personnel to provide support to the administrative function at our Loughborough-based National Cricket Performance Centre site since 2008. I required a reasonably high level PA/Administrator to work part-time hours, and have also utilised some lower level data inputting assistance. Gill Cooke Personnel had a good reputation and I approached them on recommendation - they were already supplying Loughborough University campus with Temporary labour. Whilst I was confident in tasking them with my requirements, my expectations have been exceeded both in the standard of workers supplied, and the service and support from the agency. In summary, they offer a high quality, professional service at a competitive price, and they are also very nice people to deal with! I have no hesitation in recommending their services to other local employers."
Dr Guy Jackson, Operations Manager
"I wanted to say a big thank you for your superb customer service in helping us fill the position so efficiently. As you know we were in a bit of a fix in needing someone very quickly.
You immediately understood the brief, very quickly (within a day) provided us with an excellent selection of candidates that were ideally suitable for role (to the point where we struggled to choose between two ideal candidates) and were very flexible in making our preferred candidate available within days.
Our selected candidate has quickly settled into the team and is already highly productive. She certainly has a lot of potential and has the right attitude to realise this.
We will certainly be back in touch with you as our preferred supplied of Administrative Recruitment when we next have a recruitment need and would have no hesitation in recommending Gill Cooke to any other organisation"
Darren Hockley, Managing Director
"We have our first permanent member of staff all thanks to Caroline Nash and the Gill Cooke Team.
As a small start up, employing our first member of staff was a daunting prospect. Gill Cooke Personnel took the risk and complication out of the recruitment process and found us a candidate that has exceeded all expectations. They allowed us to take on a temporary member of staff with the possiblity of making them permanent. This helped so much and gave us the confidence to take that first important step.
We cannot recommend Gill Cooke Personnel highly enough and look forward to working with them again"
Simon Gent, Partner
"I would just like to add an extra thanks for the excellent service that all of you at Gill Cooke have provided over the last few months. As you know we have advertised 3 posts with you this year and you have found suitable candidates for each one and at short notice. We would not hesitate to contact you again should the need arise or to recommend you to others. Thank you for your prompt and reliable service"
Carol Jones, Finance Director
" I have used the services of Gill Cooke Personnel for the supply of temporary warehouse operatives in my department since 2004. This organisation requires a certain standard on site, and the agency offers a selection of appropriately experienced candidates to choose from. We regularly have to complement our workforce with temporary labour, so working with a local agency who understands our needs and can supply it within the required time-frame at an acceptable cost, makes the process straightforward for me.
