Customer Testimonials

Option A have provided us with staff for nearly 2 years helping us with the seasonal peaks and troughs of the growing season and the busy winter despatch period. Since we started using Option A we have been able to call on a pool of hardworking and reliable temps with a personal and professional service from Option A's consultants. Communication is easy and effective; we are very pleased with the service provided and hope to continue this partnership for many more productive seasons. Option A have been able to send us the same people for the duration of our busy periods, meaning we've kept a stable and productive team. This has made the exercise even more cost effective, increasing both outputs and quality of work.
