  • I would recommend this business

I started myself through this agency at my current place of work (Chloe was my recruitment officer at the time) I was promoted to supervisor and then taken on full time. I now run the department and essential supply my staff. Megan (who is by far the best) is the main contact along with Grace, Dana and Rachel are always helpful and are in regular contact. If we ever need staff at short notice the somehow always manage to pull it off no matter the day or time. Couldn't recommend enough.

Customer Testimonials

For anyone reading this review, I'd like to highlight how essential have supported me into finding work. They show understanding an empathy to people's situations and support them to their best ability. I personally can't find a single fault with the company. Money is always on time, works always there, they take into consideration the work they offer you, and the chesterfield branch has wonderful, lovely staff. Definitely recommend to anyone, dont hassitate and sign up today with them. A+++.

Excellent and friendly team at Essential! Really great contact and service levels. Definitely recommend.

After a good chat with the Rob, and being asked exactly what I was looking for, I was found a job which suits me down to the ground. Great working conditions, suitable hours and excellent rate of pay. I would recommend anyone looking for a new job to try Essential Recruitment first.

I received a phone call from Rob,the following day in for an interview,half way through the interview with Chloe,she asked me about a position,I said yez get me in it,the t following a series of interviews and calls I gained a job that is well paid and is on management.

Give them a go,I would not waste your time with any other agency,as Essential do what they are good at and what every other agency should aspire to be.

Chloe is a wonderful lady and puts you at ease and always answers the phone.

So I would like to say a massive thank you to Rob for calling me and Chloe for getting me the interview...

The old saying goes "it does what it says on the tin"....!..if essential was a tin it would be the correct saying.

I have been with essential recruitment for around 3 Years and have always had work. Even if I want over time it has been available. As regard wages I have always been paid on time and the correct amount. This is a fantastic company and a true privilege to work for. Work starts as temporary but can and does lead to permanent. As it looks as though I am coming into a permanent contract my advice is join essential recruitment work hard and be on time and you will love working with the fantastic team. The day I get a contract will in many ways be a happy occasion but I will miss having the team behind me. Many thanks to you all, you have truly been amazing.

Hi thank you so much for everything, I was only on your books 2days & you found me a fantastic job. Brilliant service thanks again

We had one clear objective, to uphold the ethical and moral stance in a business sector that was, in our opinion, in decline. Two branches were opened simultaneously, Mansfield and Ripley. Since then the business has grown year on year even through difficult trading times. The turnover of the business has increased annually. Branch openings have been achieved through organic growth with a measured approach and funded by the business to ensure self sustainability. Chesterfield opened 2007, Worksop 2008, Barnsley 2009, Burton 2011, Long Eaton 2013, Doncaster 2016 and Rotherham 2018.
