Hi Danielle, Hinckley Branch Manager. I definitely had a great experience working with you. I would like to thank you for the opportunities given to me. Through your agency opened me the opportunity for this permanent position which I am joining with Oakland International. I would like to especially thank Dave Renolds who helped me a lot when I was working at Eddie Stobart and Joseph Coates who handled my application to Oakland International. It was a great pleasure to work with you. Thank you, Kind Regards, Samange Dissanayaka
I have worked with Dave and Stacey at S&L Personnel as one of their clients for over 4 years. They have worked with our company during times when we have had some ambitious recruitment requirements. The on-site team have always been helpful and contactable, providing us with quality staff whenever we need them. S&L take the time to understand our needs and have played an important part in helping us to meet some difficult deadlines. I would be happy to recommend S&L Personnel to any business looking for a reliable and flexible staffing solution
S&L Personnel is an excellent recruitment agency that I have had the pleasure to work with as one of their clients for over past three years. Their approach, professionalism and expertise assisted us in finding the right level and calibre of temporary labour to support and fulfil our seasonal staffing requirements. Simon, Andy, Stacey, Dan, Chloe, Dave and the whole S&L team take time to understand client requirements and plan appropriately to ensure that all staffing requirements are met in an efficient and timely manner. S&L Personnel are a friendly, honest and reliable recruitment agency and I would strongly recommend them to other businesses looking for a trusted partner to provide them with reliable staffing solutions without any hesitation.
I have been working for S & L Personnel since the end of October 2016. From the very first day I have been welcomed as an important part of the team, and what I really like is that their door is always open. In the multicultural environment I have made a lot of friends, which makes work funnier, faster and happier. I have to say that Adrian is the most friendly person I have ever met as a consultant. He cares about you, never forgets and always figures out whats best for you. All in all a pleasure working for S & L Personnel, I am glad I work for them!
Before joining S&L Personnel, I joined many online recruitment sites with little or no success. When I joined S & l Personnel, within a week they had found me employment locally. What I liked about S & L Personnel is the knowledgable, friendly staff who take an interest in you and may or may not suit you. Any issues or concerns are dealt with in a very friendly and professional manner. i personally enjoyed the face to face connection rather than faceless people through a computer.
I phoned S&L Personnel at 11.00am - they came for a meeting at 1.00pm - engaged them at 2.00pm - had prospective candidates by 9.00am two days later. I took on the candidate within the week. This was the first time we used this agency - excellent communication throughout the process.

S & L Personnel Ltd have on occasion supplied me with industrial labour to help cover our peak periods. The staff have been polite, reliable and hard working and have always done a great job. The S & L team deliver a great service and its good to know I have the option to increase my labour force at short notice and at at realistic charge rate during my peak periods. We will continue to use S & L and recommend them in the future.
We have used S & L Personnel Ltd on a number of occasions for our general warehouse operatives, and they have always provided punctual high quality staff. On some occasions at very short notice. The managment team have always delivered an exceptional level of service and professionalism whilst remaining friendly and approacable. I am very happy to recomend this company and look forward to many years of working together in the future.
S & L Personnel Ltd have been supplying Subec Ltd with temporary and permanent staff since June 2007. Over this time the company has always strived to source and provide us with staff tailored to suit the specific requirements of our business. Both company directors and their recruitment team communicate with us on a regular basis in a friendly yet professional manner. Invoices have always been prompt and accurate and all of the staff at S & L Personnel Ltd that deal with our contract have an excellent understanding of recruitment / employment laws and legislation. We look forward to working with S & L Personnel Ltd in the future as both business grow. I have no reservations about providing them with an excellent reference based on their business practices.
S & L Personnel Ltd have supplied temporary workers to my recycling business regularly over the last 2 years. The company have always been consistently reliable and provide an excellent service (Both during and out of business hours). They work hard to ensure that they provide our company with experienced operatives happy to work in the demanding enviroment which is recycling collection. The company speak with my supervisors daily to ensure our contractual requirements are met and have always worked hard to ensure staff are available to meet any last minute requirements that we may have. The company invoice accurately and ensure that all their staff get paid correctly and on time which helps them build a good relationship with their staff. This in turn results in the majority of cases in the worker being reliable and hard working. I look forward to an ongoing business relationship which I am sure will be as positive as the last year has been.
