Staff Testimonials


Below you will find some kind words from our Permanent and Temporary Staff


I joined PS recruitment as I needed more experience in social care and flexibility. Working at PS recruitment has been really positive. I have been able to manage my studies and work around my schedule. I’ve had numerous positions which have enabled me to gain experience with vulnerable adults and children. The team are friendly, supportive and given me the time when I have needed it and answered any questions.

Robert – Newly Qualified Social Worker

I have been really happy with the professionalism and the personalisation that PS Recruitment brought to the recruitment service. I felt fully supported throughout the whole process and PS Recruitment worked relentlessly to find me a role suited not only to my skill base but also the right company for my persona. I would highly recommend their services to anyone wanting to change career or find work.

Sharon – Quality Manager

I have been with PS Recruitment for over 5 years and would like to give my heartfelt warm thank you to all the team for their support and guidance. I would recommend PS Recruitment to anyone looking for temp or permanent job.

Saima – Children & Families Support Worker

I worked for PS Recruitment for a couple of years and always found them helpful, fully supportive of my search for work and straightforward + immediate with payments. I experienced no snags working with them and I am very grateful for their assistance which enabled me to find full-time permanent employment. The consultants were wonderful.
Many thanks PS Recruitment.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving me the opportunity to broaden my horizons and increase my understanding of working with younger people. I have enjoyed all the placements and new experiences that I have had.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done for me. You all do such a fantastic job and it’s been brilliant doing something so varied and interesting. It was a pleasure working for the company and I would recommend it to friends looking to work in the social care sector. .

Kerry- Support Worker

Whilst studying I decided to try to gain some valuable experience in Social Care and applied to join P.S recruitment agency. The application process was quick and simple, the staff were friendly and supportive, explaining all aspects of their expectations in line with my expectations of the types of clients I would be hoping to work with. I was up and running within a few weeks following my DBS certificate and the work was readily available, should I require it.

Being able to gain the added experience gave me confidence and the tools required to engage with people on all levels, allowing for a positive experience all round.

Having successfully completed my Degree I was put forward by Zara to work within a charity on a temp to perm basis, this experience was also very insightful, gave me knowledge and experience engaging with clients and co-workers. This work ended abruptly after a short time due to a permanent worker returning from long term sick leave. Luckily Zara was able to get me another opportunity within a matter of weeks. That was 19 months ago and I am still working there, and loving my role as Social Worker within Manchester City Council.

I have also had opportunity to recommend P.S Recruitment provision to work alongside my team and this has overall worked out very positively.

P.S staff in the office are always on hand should there be any concerns or requests for service. Although autonomous working is required there is always support at the end of a phone line.

Susan – Social Worker

Thanks a million for finding me work SUPER quickly – really appreciate it. Really settling into my role here now and that’s thanks to you for recognising a good team match! I will happily recommend your service and use it again if I should need to!

Sophie – Temporary to Permanent Candidate

The recrutiment process was really easy and formal, I felt relaxed and they do try their best to help you. I received a great service from P.S recruitment. I was contacted with a day of applying for a job and Zara was really nice and pleasant and helped me out throughout the whole progress even up to the day of my interview for a job. Thank you Zara and P.S recruitment.

Kirstie – Permanent Candidate

I first came to PS Recruitment when I had 7 months away from university. My friend had recommended them to me and unlike other agencies I enquired about, did not mind that I was initially only intending to work for 7 months. It took about two weeks to gather my ID, attend an initial interview, check my DBS and references and complete the mandatory training. The training is a single day and it just ensures that staff are working safely and are up to date with safeguarding procedures.

I started out work at a charitable trust who provide services to children and young people and it was here I learned how to carry out many personal care tasks such as washing, dressing, continence care. With this organisation I was offered a 3 month contract which meant I had regular work with a regular team, which is better for the service users, my colleagues and for me.

I returned to university for a while and once I had graduated, I returned to PS because I knew that they would keep me as busy as I wanted to be. I did ad hoc shifts, for the summer, booking in a day or two at a time, allowing me to choose when to go on my family holiday and be flexible for my work life balance.

I then worked for 6 months at a local authority children’s home, with a group of teenaged lads. This longer post gave me the opportunity to build relationships with the young people. I moved on to work at a private residential children’s home for young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties. I was offered a permanent contract here, until for various reasons, I chose to resign. Of course, I came to back to PS and I was quickly busy again.

They recently secured me a job interview for a home carer post at a not-for-profit trust close to home. I was successful in this and have now embarked on my new role.

Willow – Residential / Support Worker

I first became involved with PS in 2013 after leaving continuous employment for 27 years! I took a temp to perm role with a large charitable organisation and was promoted persistently for 3 years. When things didn’t work out and Zara was made aware that I was seeking employment again she had another job waiting for me!

Again I took on a temp to perm role and I love the job I do now! I was matched to the position due to my skills and experience by Zara. Everything had always gone smoothly with PS recruitment and I have not had to seek work as it has been found for me! I would highly recommend this agency to anyone seeking work or staff to fill positions on a temporary or permanent basis. It’s certainly worked for me.

Sarah – Adult Social Care Practioner

My time with the recruitment agency wasn’t very long, but highly rewarding. I got exactly what I have hoped for from the start. I was able to get many desirable shifts. I was always offered decent shifts and in places not far from where I reside, this is not a common thing among the other agencies. I was treated with the respect that every employee deserves.

I have been recommending my hardworking friends to PS and will continue to do that.

Glenn, – Residential Childcare Worker

During my time at PS Recruitment they have always been loyal and supportive of my career. The managing director Zara Shannon is the best manager you could wish for; she supported me throughout my university studies and throughout my time working overseas in America.

I couldn’t have asked for a better Recruitment agency and would recommend them to any upcoming employees. I just want to say a big thank you for everything and all the best in the future.

Kayleigh, – Children’s Residential Care Worker

PS recruitment are a professional agency who have experienced and knowledgeable staff. From my initial phone call, enquiring about future employment, I was looked after by an efficient and extremely organised team. I gained employment and was able to start my job within a week from application. Fantastic service and will be continuing to use the agency in the foreseeable future.

Dorcas, Support Worker – Adult Learning Disabilities

PS Recruitment’s dedicated staff have consistently found me appropriate assignments which have developed my skills and it has been a pleasure working with their supportive team. I have felt like a valued member of PS Recruitments team of agency staff.

PS have continually gone the extra mile to ensure I have had the best possible work experiences whilst on assignment; this has been in providing specific training, sending regular update emails and often just a phone call to see how I have been getting on.

Ben, Support Worker – Adult Learning Disabilities
