She is fantastic to deal with, an excellent communicator and has always been completely open and honest in all her dealings with us.

We have used Julia Hughes, Working Solutions for many years, both for temporary staff and permanent positions with great success. They listen to your requirements, and take the hassle out of recruitment only presenting the very best candidates. We have a great working relationship with the team there and would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Where do I begin?! What a fantastic service Working Solutions provided when I first thought about expanding the business. The service was truly excellent – from the moment I placed the enquiry, through to the quality of the candidates you sent me - and the follow up with reference checking and appointment. You took the time to listen to my requirements and offered thoughtful and helpful suggestions; leading to not one, but two excellent appointments! The candidate for Snr HR Consultant is fantastic and our Apprentice HR Consultant appointment was an unexpected bonus. I can wholeheartedly recommend the exceptional and quality service we received and look forward to recommending you to my clients! Many thanks again for all your support.

Absolutely fantastic service. Esme at Working Solutions was an absolute super star and a pleasure to deal with. She couldn't have done enough for me. Esme helped me get an interview and a trial day with an industry in which I have little to no experience. She could see I had other skills that would be great within this industry. This has now lead to full time employment with that company and I am incredibly happy and look forward to my new career. I know she put in a great deal of work, effort and time and bent over backwards to get me that opportunity. Esme was always at the end of the phone and always replied to my emails. She kept me in the loop the whole way through the process and never left me wondering. I highly recommend Working Solutions they are incredibly passionate about the service they provide and the clients which they work for. Continued...
Also, I highly recommend Working solutions if you are an employer looking to recruit. Esme spoke very positively and enthusiastically about the client she was representing. She gave me a great feeling about the company and she also had great knowledge of that company. Even though I do not have experience in the industry, I believe Esme saw potential in me and instead of writing me off because I have little to no experience in that industry, she endeavored to prove to the company I am worth taking a chance on. The company were happy to give me the opportunity and so far no regrets from both sides.

"I have been with Working Solutions for the past six years and have always found their staff very welcoming and helpful.
I liaise mainly with Esme, who is both friendly yet professional.
I do not hesitate in recommending them."
Professional and first class service: Working Solutions have been very pro active and supportive throughout the recruitment process and I will always remember that. Would be happy to recommend Working Solutions to any of my colleagues without hesitation. Thank you so much for finding me the perfect job! Esme listened to what I wanted and gave me fantastic advice. Esme put me forward for an interview. Throughout the whole process she supported me, called me to see how each stage of the interview went and was prompt in following up. Within a day I had a job offer. This is all down to her professional and first class service. I am now very happy in my new job role and thank you so much.
Excellent, I want to say and I’ll say it again soon I’m sure – I really appreciate the flexibility in working with you and I appreciate the mutual trust that we have. I’ve found recruitment agents to be, on the whole, painful to deal with. It’s therefore doubly appreciated that you allow me to take my time when deciding on candidates. Thank you Julia.

I have known and been registered with Working Solutions of Ludlow for a couple of year's now and have come to know Esme over that time. No matter when I have contacted her by phone or email she has always been happy and helpful and enjoyed a conversation and I never feel rushed or that she has not got time for me. I've also spoken to Andrew on more than one occasion and have often left messages for Esme. Andrew too is always chatty and welcoming. I always feel the atmosphere of the Working Solutions office is a great one.

At very short notice, Esme found me three members of her staff to help us on New Year’s eve. All were incredibly helpful and professional in everything they were asked to do. They were all punctual and arrived at an unknown house with a large party in full swing! They all carried out various tasks; prepping canapes, handing round drinks, moving wine, lighting tea lights, serving up food, passing food and drink around and washing and clearing up. They were all charming and carried out there work cheerfully. Two of the temps were kind enough to return the next day, to help with the dreaded clearing up. I would have no hesitation at recommending Working Solutions, and would happily call upon them again.
Mrs R-C | January 2020
I would like to thank Esme and her colleagues at Working Solutions for firstly finding me a suitable position, which turned in to a permanent one. Nothing was too much trouble and there is always somebody at the end of the telephone or e-mail to answer any questions. A very professional company, and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I cannot thank Julia enough for finding my present job role for me. She supported me from start to finish, advised during the interview process, always available to chat and kept me fully updated on my application. She still checks in on me now and I have been in the post for a month. I cannot thank you enough Julia for finding me my perfect job!
Thank you Julia for your guidance. Your suggestions on how I should tailor my CV to suit the position and your advice prior to the interview was a great help. When we spoke after the interview I could see that you really took the time to understand my skills and experiences and I am so glad I took your advice. I have settled in to my new role very quickly and I would have no hesitation in recommending your agency.
I can’t thank you and Working Solutions enough for helping me find work and securing a permanent position. I would recommend Working Solutions to anyone looking for employment either temporary or permanent.
I can only describe the service I received from Working Solutions as exceptional.
Having just completed my A Levels, as a school leaver with no previous employment experience, I was very pessimistic as to what any recruitment agency would be able to find for me. However, Esme and her team offered me several temping options straight away, including some bar work which then enabled me to get a job at my local pub. A few months later I was also offered a 2 month temping placement at a PR agency where I am in fact still working 6 months later! This is due purely to the extent to which the role suits me and Working Solutions’ support and flexibility throughout my gap year. A huge thank you!
