I have only been with Randstad since May 2015 and in that time I have received an excellent service. I have experience with another agency which was not as good and would not let you know what opportunities there was available. I would recommend Randstad to other social workers in my field.

My experience with Sarah Leigh has been nothing but positive. If I ring and she is not available, she will always ring me back. She is honest and always gives me sound advice. She is very aware of my experiences and will often contact me if a contract comes through that she thinks my skillset will fit. She will always take time out to explain things clearly and is open to listening to my point of view.

She is very professional and knowledgeable in her field of expertise and I remain confident with her as my consultant. What I find invaluable in Sarah is that if I want to put myself forward for a role that has been advertised and she does not think that I match what they are looking for, she will tell me and we will have that two-way discussion rather than just put my CV forward.

I have been working with Hayley since I registered at the end of April 2016. I have to say I feel that I have been fully supported since that time. I have found Hayley to be very professional, friendly, helpful, supportive and approachable in every aspect and I feel very lucky that I have Hayley as my consultant and my support. Hayley often checks in with me ensuring that I am okay and my placement is running smoothly. I feel very re-assured in my current placement that I am fully supported in my role. Hayley always responds to any queries or concerns I have in a timely manner and I feel she always goes that extra mile.

I would highly recommend Lynne Mackenzie, my consultant at Randstad. The response to my interest was fast and professional. Lynne is friendly and knowledgable, dealing with all my questions and guiding me through the process of registering with the agency and advice on how to impress in post. The process was fast and smooth getting me registered and in a job within 2 weeks. Due to uncertainty on longevity of position, Lynne was great at chasing management and finding out exactly what was going on and able to reassure me as well as keeping an eye out for other suitable vacancies.

As a recently qualified Social Worker, I registered with Randstad as I was eager to find some employment, embark on my career and put my new knowledge and skills into good use. I was unsure and anxious as to what employment prospects would be like for a newly qualified Social Worker and how long it might take me to find employment after what was a long and trying 2 years of studying. Well, I can say that I have been pleasantly surprised and that is all down to being registered with Randstad.
A day after emailing Randstad my CV, I was contacted by the manager Giuseppa to complete the registering process. This involved gathering relevant documentation and an informal meeting to find out more about my experience and what area of Social Work may be of interest to me - to better suit my preferences. I found the staff, particularly Giuseppa and Paul to be extremely helpful and informative with regard to answering any questions I had. I found they were also motivated to find me employment promptly, in and area of interest to me. Within a week they had found me a post that I currently find enjoyable and rewarding. I find Randstad to be very professional and always willing to go the extra mile. Their advice and support has made finding my first Social Work post a stress free experience. I would recommend Randstad to any Social Worker starting out who would like to have a steady income and gain experience in a range of areas.

Rachel was my initial contact when I applied to undertake agency work with Randstad in November 2015. She guided and supported me throughout this process and continues to guide and support me now I am undertaking assignments with Randstad.
I have found Rachel to be both personable and approachable in all our interactions. I have appreciated the fact that Rachel is more than willing to communicate on a 1:1 basis and has maintained regular contact with me always being available to discuss any concerns I have has regarding placements and to raise any issues I have had with organisations on my behalf. All her dealings with myself and the organisations have placed have been conducted in a highly professional manner.
Rachel has demonstrated that she understands the issues which can affect nurses and the impact these can have on individuals. Rachel fully understands the concept of duty of care which organisations have to the people they employ.
I believe that Rachel has always acted in my my best interest. I have met with Rachel on a number of occasions and do not doubt that Rachel is a genuine, understanding and good humoured professional. She has worked hard to find me suitable employment and I have never felt pressured to accept work which I would not be comfortable undertaking. I have a lot of respect for Rachel both as a person and as a professional, it is largely due to her professional caring approach that I do not hesitate to recommend Randstad to fellow professionals if they are considering registering with an agency.
