Customer Testimonials

Got a friend who needed a job asap, he walked in, registered and Amy got him work the next day !! And then a more regular employer, thank you and will recommend.


I Signed up with City Centre last November with the view to getting some part time driving work. Looking at the reviews on here I was not expecting too much. However, I must say I have been pleasantly surprised. I have been offered plenty of hours from week one and received valuable and prompt support from the team at City Centre, especially Amy and Hanna. Payments are weekly and have been accurate and prompt with the ability to check pay slips on line. In addition I have been provided with the necessary safety equipment to complete my assignments and even signed up to a workplace pension. All in all I have had a thoroughly positive experience with City Centre and have no hesitation in recommending their agency.


I have worked for a number of different Agencies over my 40yr career as an H.G.V. Driver.
Staff are always polite and helpful.
City Centre Recruitment and Chloe Nicholas in particular have restored my faith in Agency work.


I have used City Centre's services as both a client and a candidate and they have delivered in both capacities.

If you are after a recruitment agency in Bournemouth who have real passion and commitment then I can highly recommend their services. I must say that a number of agencies I have used in the past profess to have a 24/7 service but City Centre really do answer the phone whatever time of day or night and deliver.

Well done City Centre keep it up.
