I would just like to say how pleased I am with Martine who dealt with my application for a new role.

Throughout this process I have found her very helpful and informative, she has been brilliant.

--- Arminder - Optometrist - Bristol ---

I would like to feedback on my recent experience with PPRUK. I am a community pharmacist and recently decided to resign from my job and look for another. I took the decision to contact two different agencies in the hope of finding a suitable position. The first agency was, frankly, useless. They accepted my cv and, 3 weeks later, I have yet to hear further from them.

In contrast, from my first contact with your agency, and specifically with Manny, my experience has been nothing short of superb! When I first called PPR UK, the call was taken by Manny, who immediately sounded friendly, interested and keen to help. We spent 45 minutes chatting on the phone, and I felt confident even at this early stage that I would get a good result.

Subsequently, over the course of just a few days, Manny regularly contacted me via phone and email to let me know of progress in the job search process, advising me on suitable positions, salaries, and general interview technique. I can genuinely find no fault in his work and, just over a fortnight after first contact, I had an interview for a great position in Lincoln which has resulted in me getting the job. I firmly believe that without the support and advice from Manny and his colleagues this entire process would have been much more difficult and stressful.

Therefore, in summary, I would like to reiterate my sincere thanks and recognition for the excellent work which Manny has done on my behalf. I will not hesitate to recommend both your agency, and specifically Manny, to others!

--- Simon - Superintendent Pharmacist - Lincoln ---

Just a quick note - to say thank-you! I really appreciate all the help and support you have given me over the last couple of weeks!!

I do feel very fortunate. I haven offered the perfect job for me, it isn't just a job it is a career! It came at the perfect time, in the last 6-months of 2016, I was offered 3 posts in Northern Ireland, none of which felt right for me and I declined them all.  I am soo grateful now that I did hold off now!!  

Many thanks again,


--- Diane - Clinical Pharmacist - Northern Ireland ---

 I have been fortunate enough to work with Charlyne over the last 12 months in her role with PPRUK. 

I have always found Charlyne to be professional in her approach, courteous in her dealings with me, and extremely responsive to my requests for Locums. 

Shortly after I started in my role as Opticians Manager circumstances meant that I needed locums at short notice. It is testament to Charlynes efforts that not only did I lose less than 5% of my clinics over the next 6 months, but also that I have never had to use any other agency. 

I am sorry that Charlyne has to return home, and I wish her and her family well. Her successor has some big shoes to fill!

 Just a quick message to let you know how pleased I was with the excellent service I have received from PPRUK and Lea-Anne Barnes in particular. Good communications and pleasing outcome.





--- Stan - Hearing Aid Dispenser - Northumberland ---

"A quick note to thank PPRUK for helping me to find work. I have been corresponding with Lea-Anne Barnes, who has been extremely professional and very helpful throughout. She successfully helped me to secure a job and I'd like to thank her for her time and efforts. Should I require any help in the future, I would most certainly use PPRUK again and in particular, I would liaise with Lea-Anne again. Highly recommended"

--- Bela - Dentist - Berkshire ---

"Having recently returned to the UK, I was faced with the dilemma of how to access the UK job market, either on my own or with the help of a recruitment agency. PPRUK , unlike other agencies I had also contacted, worked with me from day one, providing me with constructive feedback on my resume with prospective employers, identifying the most suitable positions based on my experience and ultimately a number of interviews. Amy made me feel like I was her only client. I have now successfully found employment. I would definitely recommend PPRUK to anyone looking to use a recruitment agency here in the UK."

--- Peter - Pharmacy Manager - Newcastle-Under-Lyme ---

I wanted to get in touch to say how great my experience has been with PPRUK. In particular I would like to highlight the superb service that Manny has given in supporting me through the application and interview process. I have had quite a few negative experiences with other recruitment companies who only see you as a commission opportunity or make you feel like a number in a database. In contrast Manny has shown great interest from start to finish and provided a personal service second to none. His encouragement and attention to detail has been fantastic and he has always honoured any commitments he has made. 

It was really nice to get a call from him before an interview wishing me luck and giving reassurance and then a follow up call to see how everything went. I would have no hesitation in recommending PPRUK and in particular Manny to anyone seeking a new role. 

 

--- Geoff - Operations Manager - East Anglia ---

My experience with Amy Britton-Powell was very good, always being helpful and responsive to my queries. Finding a job was quick and communication was clear, warm and to the point. I would recommend Amy for the above reasons.


--- Daniela - Hearing Aid Dispenser - London ---

My name is Ellie, over the last few weeks I have found a new job I'm very excited about through PPRUK. I'm writing to you just to let you know how impressed and grateful I am to one of your lovely ladies called Martine, who has helped from the very beginning when I applied to an email about a new job opportunity. 

In my opinion Martine has gone above and beyond for me, she kept me in the loop about everything I needed to know, was the friendliest person to talk to, and responded almost instantly when I needed her. I really think having her by my side in my recent job interview process improved my chances as a candidate as she had some tips to help me though confidently. 

I really wanted to say I had a great experience and I hope it can continue for many others like myself and that you know Martine is a credit to you company!

--- Ellie - Assistant Store Manager - Leicester ---

"Compared to other agencies that I have used so far, I would rate PPRUK as NO 1 (numero uno). Without any hesitation, I would recommend PPRUK to anyone looking for a job in pharmacy profession. The support given by Manny was excellent. He is a professional and goes out of the way to help people. I really appreciated his support during the application and interview process. His life was gentle, warm, approachable and the elements so mixed in him. I would like to give him full credit for my success."


--- Daya - Pharmacist - Kings Lynn ---

 

I cannot thank Anu enough for her top notch service! She responds to emails within minutes and it's always been a pleasure organising bookings with her. She has often gone the extra mile to secure the rates and stores I wanted to work in. I especially appreciate her help to connect me to others in her network.

She always conducts herself in a very friendly, professional and pleasant manner. It's been an enjoyable experience with the regular bookings she has arranged for good rates. 

I greatly appreciate the assistance she has provided me so far. She is an absolute asset to PPRUK and she definitely deserves an appraisal if she hasn't already had one! 

--- Yong - Locum Optometrist - London ---

I just wanted to bring to your attention the very positive and pleasant experience I have had during my recent job application. Manny has such a lovely way about him and I found him to be very professional but very easy to talk to. I felt Manny really listened to my job requirements and preferences but also was very informative about the company I was applying to and their expectations too. I was successful in my application and Manny negotiated fantastically on my behalf and completely beyond my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend your company as a result of this.

--- Sara - Dispenser - Stoke-On-Trent ---

I just wanted to say how delighted I am with the manner in which you have handled the whole process for me. Your attention to detail with regard to both guidance for interview questions, job specification, and matching me to the ethics of the company have been so accurate. I can't wait to get started! Thank you from myself and my family and I will be recommending you directly to all of my colleagues. You've really done a great job!


--- Sean - Hearing Aid Dispenser - Yorkshire ---

"I was seeking another job role within the North East area. I was contacted by Hollie, who arranged to set up an interview in Hartlepool for me. The support I was given from Hollie was excellent. I felt confident about keeping in touch, as well as Hollie updating me on feedback from my interview. I was pleased when I got the role and started in July. Even after I received my job role, Hollie contacted me to see how my first day was. This to me, showed she cared, which filled me with confidence about starting my job. So a big well done. Excellent support from Hollie and PPRUK. I would recommend this agency to people in my line of work."


--- Jolene - Pharmacy Technician - Stockton ---

I am writing to you regarding my experience with your company and Charlyne in particular.

I am an Optometrist with approaching 30 years experience and have been using your agency for almost one year. 

I am very happy with the level of service I received from all the staff and would also like to single out Charlyne for a special mention- she has been helping me for about 3-4 months.

My skill set and requirements are quite specific and Charlyne has displayed great professionalism in tailoring opportunities to my needs. An example of this would be where she literally talked me out of a booking that she felt would not be suitable, promising and delivering on an option more suitable to my Clinical background within a couple of days. To do this she uses the old fashioned technique of taking the time to listen and understand my clinical background and formulating which practices would benefit from my skill set - I have never felt that she is trying to just "fill the position"-  an experience I have disappointingly come across with other agencies. 

It is refreshing to meet someone who is available to take and return calls in a timely manner and goes the extra mile to try and ensure a good fit for both the practice and the Clinician.

 

--- Rohit - Locum Optometrist - West Midlands ---

"Manny is professional and extremely helpful. He returns all calls and emails promptly. Manny is also friendly and fun to deal with. I would really like to thank him for his support during the application and interview process for my new job and for his encouragement because without it I would not have applied for this role. Compared to other agencies that I have used this was by far the best service I have received."


--- Lucy - Homecare Pharmacist - Manchester ---

 

Good news is I PASSED my Canadian exams and I am a qualified optometrist over here now! Bad news - I'm letting my UK registration expire and I won't be back.

THANK YOU so much for your help over the past 3 years!! You're great. 

Happy holidays.

--- Adam - Locum Optometrist - Dorchester ---

First class professional, efficient, but yet personal service from the onset. Thank you Lea-Anne for taking time and all your efforts in assisting me. Would  recommend PPRUK to candidates and employers alike and  would certainly use again. 

--- Roy - Hearing Aid Dispenser - Norwich ---

"I am writing to say thanks to Hollie Palmer and Angela Britton for helping find me a new and exciting role as Pharmacist Deployment Coordinator. They have both been professional and attentive in helping to prepare me for my new role and have left me feeling confident that they are only a phone call away should I need anything. I would 100% recommend PPRUK for anyone looking for a role in pharmacy. Hollie responded very quickly to my emails and found me the role very shortly after I signed up to PPRUK."


--- Martin - Pharmacy Deployment Coordinator - Stockton ---

I would just like to say how positive an experience I felt it was dealing with Lea-Anne, always bright and cheerful very attentive to my needs, Well Done.


--- Tony - Hearing Aid Dispenser - Lincoln ---

I have found Anu's services to be top notch, responding to my emails usually within minutes and providing an exceptional service consistently. She has often gone the extra mile to organise bookings which will suit me and has helped to secure rates which I have requested. It's nice to have a locum agent who tries to ensure you get work which suits you. 

Thank you for such fantastic service. 

--- Jaspreet - Locum Optometrist - West Midlands ---

"I am writing to let you know about the wonderful, friendly and professional service I received from Manny. Throughout the process of application for my new current position Manny was thoughtful and attentative and is a credit to PPR UK! Many Thanks Manny!


--- Madaline - Pharmacy Manager - Middlesbrough ---

I would like to take this opportunity to give a testimonial regarding Amy Britton-Powell. Amy and I became acquainted due to an enquiry by me regarding an online hearing aid dispenser job listing. From our first initial contact right through to me securing my first job offer, Amy presented herself as exceptionally professional, thorough, kind and considerate. It has been an absolute pleasure working with her, and her sound advice, guidance, warmth, honesty and discretion are especially appreciated. 

I would highly recommend Amy as a recruitment consultant! Thank you! 



--- Fatima - Hearing Aid Dispenser - London ---

Anu is very personable and is able to put her clients at ease. I find Anu to be professional and dedicated to searching the right job for the right candidate.  She has helped to fill my diary with locum positions that suit my clinical character and high standards.  

She gives me regular feedback, and reconfirms all bookings at the start of each week.  Her attention to every detail is fantastic, removing any uncertainty that can exist with locuming. I find Anu to be a great mediator between myself and potential locum placements and have managed to secure regular locum cover because of her understanding of my needs. I think Anu is an absolute diamond and an asset to the recruitment field.

--- Mona - Locum Optometrist - Bristol ---

"I would like to give a heartfelt thank you to all the people at PPRUK, especially Manny, for all the support, encouragement and job opportunities you channelled my way when I was looking for work. Without doubt I would recommend PPRUK to anyone looking for work and I have already recommended my friend to you."


--- Paddy - Pharmacist - Leeds ---

Hello, I would like to let you know of my overly positive experience that i have had with PPRUK, especially Lea-Anne with her stellar communicative skills and warm personality that was comfortable to work with and landed me with many fantastic opportunities. I was lined up with interviews and offered a job within 2 weeks of being first in touch with her, which was an amazing turnaround! 

I have enjoyed liaising with her, being a very easy person to talk to. I couldn't be more impressed with her productiveness and determination on my behalf to find me such an amazing opportunity. I would recommend PPRUK and their services for any aspiring professional or any of my colleagues looking for a change. Thank you again for doing such an awesome job!

Kindest Regards & Good Luck to all :)


--- James - Hearing Aid Dispenser - North East ---

Thanks to Martine for getting me the job I have been looking for for the last 8 years, wihout realising, she has changed my life. Negotiations were made and help was given on how to prepare for the interview, I feel everything went well.

Martine was very supportive, especially with communication between myself and the client, she made it a very smooth process for me. I got offered the role, with the hours i was looking for.

Martine is a good people person and negotiator and has totally changed my outlook on recuritment agencies after previous bad experiences.

--- Nina - Dispensing Optician - Bristol ---
