Testimonials Bg


I found that throughout the whole recruitment process the service provided by Barker Ross to myself was second to none. From the very first point of contact, the brief Neil delivered regarding the role was very detailed and allowed me to make the decision to progress my application for the position. Through the process Neil kept my fully updated and advised and was always available to speak. Barker Ross is now the approved preferred supplier for the business.

Having dealt with many recruitment agencies before Barker Ross, I was a little apprehensive when Grant contacted me about a position he thought was suited to me. However, Grant kept me fully informed throughout the whole process from interview to start date, even when I didn’t succeed, he gave me many options and opportunity until I was successful, now I am a well paid team leader in a great environment, all thanks to Grant and his team. He was professional at all times and a pleasure to deal with. I would strongly recommend Barker Ross to anyone who wants to deal with friendly, competent, professional recruitment agencies.
