I wanted to give some feedback. Its a wonderful company for me.


The environment and employees of both branches are very pleasant and constructive. Amit especially from South Woodford has helped me get up and running on the system and it was because of him that I was able to perform at Sunninghill today. 


Thank you so much for helping me with this I have been looking for a nice change and thank your agency and you once again for making this happen.


Have a lovely weekend

Mariam - Optometrist

Good morning,


Thank you Anu for all the help and support you have provided though my early stages of locum work. You have helped me with getting regular work with preferred rates and supporting me should there be any inconveniences. You are very easy to talk to and nothing seems too much for you, making it easy to make adjustments when needed. I cannot recommend you enough and I thank you for all the hard work you have done on my behalf.


Kind regards
A - Optometry - Locum

I have been using PPR services for our optical Locum cover for over two years now, specifically with Anu.


Anus communication has been excellent through out this time and she has continued to support us in filling our vacancies.


We will continue to use PPR and Anu as they have demonstrated to us that they they have the candidates and means to fill our ever changing demand.


Lee - Locum Optometry

Hi Anu. 


 I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I appreciate your work. Your communication has been brilliant, always at the end of the phone, extremely understanding, highly efficient and never let me down on any issues small or big. Please keep up the excellent work and I will continue to recommend you to all of my colleagues.


Kindest regards


Nav - Locum Optometry

I just want to say a massive thank you to you! After losing my job unexpectedly you have been so supportive and helped me massively. I always wanted to locum but I didn't know how to go about it or if it would be right for me and you have been guiding me every step of the way. You kept me calm and helped me get plenty of work. You help me to stay on top of my diary and keep me organised.. and busy! I have really enjoyed working with you. Your service is always impeccable, you are a fantastic, kind individual and PPR is very lucky to have you! I honestly cannot thank you enough.


Kind regards,


Optical assistant - Surrey

As soon as i heard from Anu i knew she was going to solve my locum problems.  She has consistently been able to provide for my needs, not only booking quality locums in advance but also in emergency situations.  The communication from Anu is second to none, and she gives clear guidance of who to contact in her absence.  

She has also been sympathetic of any issues we may have had in store, providing solutions to problems.  

Anu listens to the feedback given to her, regarding her locums and responds accordingly whether that be to remove from the store or to have the relevant conversations with those locums, Anu isn't afraid to have those conversations to ensure her business provides the best possible service.  


In short i cannot rate Anu highly enough, for the provision of Locum services. 

Locum Optometrist

Hi Anu

Just wanted to say how grateful I am for all your help. You do a brilliant job of advocating for me, organising locum days and answering queries, all while being prompt and professional.

I will definitely be recommending you and PPRUK to my colleagues.




Adi - Locum Optometrist

My experience with PPR UK has been the most rewarding portion of my locum career. Anu Jalaf has been a tremendous advocate and extremely helpful by matching me with great businesses. She has connected me with practices that are a perfect professional fit and she always lets me know what I need to focus on and improve. I am more than happy to have her fill up my schedule because of the trust I have in her judgement. Many thanks

Raed - Optometrist - East Sussex

Craig has been helping me now for a couple of months with my Locum.

 I have found Craig very efficient in finding the best of Locums for me at both practices, and sometimes at very short notice.

 He keeps me informed of any changes to Locum dates and times and his communication in this has been brilliant!

 We have hit some difficult times with certain Optom's not turning up for various reasons and Craig has been very quick to help in any way he can. Just last week, he found an Optom for me within hours as we were so in need.

 I would highly recommend Craig to anyone that asked about Locum recruitment needs and also PPRUK as a company.

Rebecca - Optometry Manager

Good afternoon,


I trust you are ok.


I would love to leave a feedback about your services.


My consultant was a very professional, kind and friendly person. He supported me during the whole process with the Asda vacancy. I decided to stay with my current employer but I was very impressed about PPRUK. He is such a credit for your company and I personally think that everyone should learn from him. His approach and attitude are outstanding.


Please pass my feedback to him. 


Thanks a lot.


Kind regards, 

Sandra - Optometry

Would like to say a big thank you for PPRUK's help and all her effort in making sure I got this Job role.


My consultant made all necessary steps easy and I'm grateful. Thanks again 


Kind regards 



Ola -

Hi Angela,


I just wanted to give some feedback on the support I have received the past 2 weeks. My consultants have both been so supportive and helpful with this process right from the beginning. The continuous support and check up calls have been great and always keeping me in the loop after a interview and what the next steps would be has been amazing.


I just wanted to show my appreciation for all the hard work put in by PPRUK to help me secure a job as a Hearing Aid Dispenser with a very reputable company.



Kind Regards,

Pooja -

It has been a pleasure working as a Locum Optometrist with PPRUK over the past few years. They ares very efficient, easy to talk and finds the jobs you want. I like working with PPRUK because they are very responsive and conducts themselves as a professional. Would highly recommend working with PPRUK if you are a locum.

Kind regards 

J Patel

Locum Optometrist

My name is Summaya, with the help of  PPRUK I got an excellent opportunity. My consultant was so helpful and he managed to get me an opportunity within a month. 

I had a very present and lovely experience with him. 

Summaya - Optical Assistant - Yorkshire

I just wanted to let you know how fantastic my locum consultant has been. He is so helpful and is always available for any queries or questions. An asset to your company. 

Naseem - Optical Assistant - Wolverhampton

Ppruk have been providing me with ophthalmic locum services for the last 10 years. They have always been the first agencies to distribute the work and have a wide range of Opticians that they have contracts with.

I have full trust and I know when ppruk confirm a day, it is confirmed. 

I am extremely impressed with Anu (who I have never met or seen before), however is always professional and friendly. 

I hope they keep providing these services and undoubtedly will become the number one market leaders.

Locum Optometrist - Yassar

First of all… wow! I am in shock and awe of how quickly and efficiently you managed to sort all of those bookings out. I truly admire your work ethic and I hope PPR recognise what an asset you are to the team! I will certainly be recommending you to all the locums I encounter on my journey. 

 All of those dates are correct, as I knew they would be. 

 Thank you again, you are a star! 

Locum Optometrist - Guildford

Hi Angela

I just wanted to leave some feedback.

I would like to say a big thank you to PPRUK. I started as a full-time locum a few months ago and my consultant has been great support through the transition. He has been in regular contact and has helped fill my diary to the point where I now have regular work.

He also introduced me to other locums for any extra advice I may have needed. His service has been exceptional. He is a very hard working and dedicated individual who has routinely gone the extra mile. I would definitely recommend PPRUK.

Thank you again for all your support. 

Many thanks

Priya - Locum Optometrist - Leicester

Firstly I wanted to thank you for the excellent service you have provided our business over the past 7 months. In a year of staff changes you have been able to find all the cover we have needed, placing Optoms who work to a high standard and are popular with our patients and staff.

I know I can rely on you to rebook promptly when locums have cancelled and you communicate all the booking information quickly and efficiently by email and respond to any queries by return making my job so much easier. It has been a pleasure working with you, and great to be able to work with the same consultant throughout. Many thanks for your continuing support.


Optical Manager - Opticians - Melksham

Hi Angela,

I wanted to take a moment to show my appreciation for all the hard work that colleagues at PPRUK put into helping a Locum like me find placements with preferred optical practices. 

In particular I wanted to highlight my sincere thanks to my consultant, who has helped me greatly over the past 6 months. I was a resident for over 9 years and was a little anxious to step into the locumming lifestyle after relocating. He is very understanding of my work requirements and tries his best to meet them. He builds great rapport very easily and that in my opinion deserves recognition and praise. His professionalism is what will keep me with and recommend an agency like PPRUK.

Thanks PPRUK!

Muna - Optometrist - Manchester

Hi Rishi,

Just wanted to send some feedback regarding the excellent service I have received from you and the superb quality of optometrists you have placed with us. You are always very prompt in your communications and have managed to fill some tricky clinics.

Thanks very much

Janet - Optical Director - Hucknall


I am writing to say thank you to Rishi for helping me cover the vacancies as a locum. He has always been able to find work and he is very helpful. I can always talk to him about different locations and he makes sure that it is best fit for me. I would actually say that I don't really use any other agencies now as Rishi normally sorts out all my diary.

Thank you to all the team at PPRUK

Samia - Locum Optometrist - Preston

I wanted to relay my gratitude to your team, specifically Rishi for all the help he has given me since I became a locum in July. He has been a lifesaver and has gone above and beyond what I would expect. Various times I have contacted him out of hours and at no point has he ever made a fuss and did his best to help me or give me advice. He is a credit to your organisation and himself.

He has organised my diary and continually been in contact so I know what my days are looking like and so I have all the info I need. I cannot thank him enough. 

Please may you convey my thanks to Rishi and gratitude for all his hard work.

Khameran - Locum Optometrist - Newcastle


I would like to take some time out to thank you and and the PPRUK team for the excellent professional services provided. I would like to thank my consultant especially as he has provided a fantastic personalised service, where he has gone beyond his duties. He has always been respectful, very efficient and has helped me attain locum work. I believe my consultant is an asset to the team.

Kind regards,


Sajad - Locum Optometrist - Yorkshire

 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! 


Neil - Opticians Manager - Devon

I would just like to say a big thank you to Amy Goodwin, at PPRUK, for helping and supporting me into going back to work as a Dispensing Optician. I suffer with anxiety and Amy was very friendly, extremely helpful, reassuring and negotiated between myself and my new employer. 

My new job is perfect for me and I'm so happy to have found it with the help of Amy and PPRUK. 

Thank you so much again. I really appreciate it. 

Emma - FBDO 

Emma - Dispensing Optician - Cambridge

Dear Angela 

I registered with PPR UK last year based upon a recommendation of Anu. From day one Anu has always been great at communication, and i have always felt at ease talking to her, which is not a common trait among recruiters.

I really value Anu as she always tries to find work for me based upon my requirements and she is always successful in doing so.
Anu is extremely efficient and resolves any issues or enquiries that I have immediately, even if it's her day off!

Most of my locum bookings are booked via Anu only. She is a huge asset to the company, and I would simply be lost without her.

Kamal - Locum Optometrist - Slough

Dear Angela

This is just a quick email to say thank you for all you've done, judging by the experience I've had with Lea-Anne you do a great job as a company! Lea-Anne has helped me secure a job as an Optical Assistant with no stress! Lea-Anne has been absolutely brilliant, polite, full of knowledge about the interview process,  stayed in touch with me and informed me every step of the way from the moment I put through an application to my job acceptance today.

She has also made sure to let me know that she'll be in touch in the next 3 months too. I've had very poor experiences from recruitment agencies so I was quite weary, but Lea-Anne has given me the confidence and reassurance that there are companies out there who are all about the people! Thank you very much.

Kind regards


Annabelle - Optical Assistant - Aylesbury

Hi Anu 

I am new to locuming  so was apprehensive about finding constant work. However, with PPRUK and Anu's assistance I have been reassured and Anu has been able to fulfill my requirements and even exceeded my expectations!

Locum Optometrist - Essex
Locum Optometrist - Essex

Dear Anu,

I would like to say a massive thank you to Anu for all her hard work and commitment to finding me Locum work over the last 2 years. Only in the past few months I have started booking more frequently and directly through Anu who has been fantastic in her approach and professionalism. No request is ever too much for Anu, she goes above and beyond to ensure my bookings are correct, the daily rates are the best possible and always ensures that my invoices are received and paid on time. I know for a fact this type of tailored service would not be offered by any other agency. Thank you for making my life so much easier and organised Anu, you’re a real asset to PPRUK! I am looking forward to continuing working with you in the future and securing more Locum work. 

Many Thanks,

Tanya - Locum Optometrist - Slough

Dear Angela,

I just want to let you know that Manny done an incredible job helping me. He took a really good genuine care of me for my months of struggles and never forgot about me. I am truly amazed by his unconditional approach towards me.

He is absolutely on point and has a really good understanding of people and a transparent with business, which is a rare quality in my eyes.

He managed through every little misunderstanding and could clear it up with ease. He was an incredible support for me, and was there for me every single time to make sure everything goes smooth!

I just wanted to take the time to let you know!

Thank you very much!


Eleanora - Optical Assistant - Nottingham

Hi Angela 

Lea-Anne has been amazing throughout this process , extremely helpful and has always kept me updated throughout this. I feel she has gone above and beyond with the support she has given and to get the best for me. I cannot thank her enough for her help , it has been an easy and seamless process and I would highly recommend her ! 

Kind regards 


Kassim - Optometrist - Birmingham
Please give my feedback that i couldn't have asked for a better service from yourselves over the past 3 months - you've been professional and very proficient
Our Thanks!
Harry - Optical Manager

Hi Anu, 

I would just like to say how wonderful you have been in helping me get locum dates. You are extremely efficient when replying to my emails, and patient in your replies to my never-ending questions. I have only been locuming for the past 2 months and you have been immensely helpful in securing block bookings and explaining how things work. Thanks to you I have now almost entirely booked my diary with work days, and this gives me huge peace of mind. 

It is also nice that I can call you and email you. I do not have to talk to all the other staff and repeatedly explain my concerns or questions. Instead a direct phone call to you or an email, means that you know me well and can help me out straight away.

Thank you once again, and I look forward to continuing working with you.

Kind regards


Maulia - Locum Optometrist - London

To Whom it may concern

I would like to say how great  Anu has been in finding me Locum work. She has found me last minute bookings, block bookings at the best rate with the highest standard of accommodation. 

Anu has been excellent to work with and calls me with work that may be  suitable for me. If work has be cancelled she works hard to find me replacement work.

She has been a pleasure to work with

Kind regards 


Azam - Locum Optometrist - London

Good Afternoon Angela,

I am the Manager of an Optical Store in the South West. I just wanted to email regarding how Kate has handled my requests to find Locum Optometry cover.

I have put ads out with a number of Locum agencies over the last few weeks as we had unexpected holiday and needed it covered very urgently. I gave my pricing and what I needed. 

Not only did Kate understand everything I wanted and used the criteria I gave her, she took the initiative to ask me about rising prices in certain situations, she was able to contact me back at all hours of the day that suited me.

Kate made me feel like my business was important to her, and for an agency to put that much effort into one of their clients is phenomenal.

All of the other agencies did not find me people quick enough or for the exact dates that I wanted or the pricing that I wanted. Therefore Kate excelled my expectations of how your company works, and for that I will be using your company in the future and I will most certainly be asking for Kate.

I have emailed due to the fact that I know being a customer facing company that it takes 2 minutes to praise someone, although it is not done enough.

I hope you understand the level of service and professionalism that was shown to me by Kate.

I will not be using another Locum agency and I will also be recommending you to our region and our division of over 100 stores. I have already spoken to the Divisional Director about this, and about how professional and efficient Kate was. 

Kind Regards,


Paul - Optical Store Manager - South West

Hi Angela

Just a quick note to say a big thank you to Manny.

Three weeks ago I expressed interest in a Dispensing Optician role and I am now the successful applicant. I can’t thank Manny enough for supporting me through this process and for encouraging me to be myself. He has without a doubt made the whole experience very enjoyable.

Michelle - Dispensing Optician - Yorkshire


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
Hi Angela
Just a quick email to say how helpful Lea-Anne was at arranging an interview with an Opticians for me. She was fantastic
Kind Regards
Bradley - Optical Assistant - Cornwall


I felt compelled to give some feedback on my experience with PPRUK.

Coming from a background in customer service roles, I wanted to give recognition to Amy Goodwin in regards to my dealings with her on the phone. After dealing with similar organisations in the past, speaking to Amy has been a pleasure and in an age where customers/clients can easily be reduced to just a number, I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the experience and felt that Amy was taking a genuine interest in my personal progress.

I truly hope she gets the recognition she deserves for her drive, dedication and professionalism towards her job.

Yours faithfully,

Thomas - Optical Assistant - Stirling

I would like to thank you for your constant support and help in covering the practices when needed. 

I hope this great partnership continues for the time ahead.

Thank you.

Best regards,


Optical Client - London

I am a locum Optometrist who recently booked some locum days through your agency with Rishi.I am pleased to inform you that my experience with your agency because of Rishi has been very good .Rishi made sure the opticians I have worked with have kept to the testing times and breaks.

Kind regards


Valmiki - Locum Optometrist - Nottingham

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

I would like to write a testimonial for Anu , regarding her consistent excellent assistance in providing me with tailor-made locum work over the past 3 years!

I know she is probably sick of me , with my constant e-mails and specific requirements , but she always deals with me professionally and handles my requests efficiently. With bookings now, she even asks the Directors the questions before even I do! It is a pleasure dealing with Anu and the PPRUK agency and I always feel reassured when doing a block booking with yourselves.

More recently , I have challenged Anu to find bookings for me and my Fiancée together, and she has even managed to do that which has been exceptional! I cannot praise her highly enough and I always recommend Anu to my other Locum friends and colleagues. She is an important asset to the agency and I hope to continue working with Anu and PPRUK for many more years to come!

Kind Regards,


Ninal - Locum Optometrist - London

Anu has been very proactive and enthusiastic since the first day I got in contact with her for locum work.  She has been very accommodating, helpful and keen to provide me with dates and regions that I prefer. I feel that Anu is very reliable and I especially feel comfortable to approach her. She has filled up my schedule so quickly and efficiently and made the process seamless! I would recommend Anu to anyone of my colleagues who needs locum work. Thank you Anu for your great service! 



Caroline - Locum Optometrist - London

I have been registered with PPRUK for the past year and have developed a good relationship with Anu Jalaf. As a full time locum optometrist it can be difficult to find work, however Anu has been very helpful in finding me locum days. Most of my work is now booked through her. She is very professional and great at resolving any changes in my diary.  Through Anu I have built up a network of stores where I now get regular work. I can’t recommend her services enough.

Rupinder - Locum Optometrist - Uxbridge


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

Hi Angela 

PPRUK is always my first choice agency when I’m looking for any locum work to book. Kate, who looks after me, constantly goes above and beyond her role to secure me work in the areas that I’m looking for at short notice and for that I am very grateful. 

She is kind, considerate and accommodating and the best recruitment consultant I’ve ever worked with to date. She has aided me in securing work for very reputable companies and regularly does so without fail and with absolute promptness too.

Knowing that I’ve booked through PPRUK gives me the upmost confidence and reassurance in knowing that if anything goes wrong, they are there for me to remedy the problem and find a mutable agreement for both parties. Thank you so much for looking after me and I look forward to working with you for the many years to come 

Rukaiya - Locum Optometrist - South West

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

Hi Martine 

Thank you for the great service I have received from yourself.  The speed at which you found a candidate with the right experience is amazing.  Thank you also for your advice, honesty and patience when I was considering whether the candidate was the right fit for our business. 

I look forward to further conversations and appointments (hopefully!). 

Thanking you and kind regards


Debbie - Opticians - New Milton

Hi Angela,

Just wanted to let you know that Elif Ozan is an amazing recruitment officer/consultant. Very quick and efficient with my whole recruitment process.

Kind regards

Katy - Optical Assistant - 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

Good Afternoon Angela 

I'm writing in regards to thanking PPR UK and Lea-Anne for helping me through the process of getting a new role. 

The process and my experience with PPR UK has been brilliant and Lea-Anne has helped make it a very calm and easy going process. 

I appreciate the help and advice as well as the professionalism and care with which the application process was handled.  

Again, thank you to PPR UK and Lea-Anne for your effort and help through the process. I've thoroughly appreciated it and enjoyed dealing through you.

Resham - Optical Assistant - London

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

"Since I have started working with Anu. I have allowed her to manage my diary and have found it takes the hassle out of booking work and my average daily rate has increased by more than 10%. Anu is very professional, friendly and hard working. I would highly recommend working with her and PPRUK."

Kind regards,


Fearghal - Locum Optometrist - London

Hi Rishi,

Based on my experience I will highly recommend PPR to my colleagues.

Once again many thanks,


Aija - Locum Optometrist - Leeds

I just want to say a massive thank you for everything you have done to help me get the position i was looking for. You have helped me to get back to my confident self and I never thought that would happen again. You have been amazing! You were there for me every step of the way and made me feel positive about everything before, during and after the interview. 

I would highly recommend anyone looking for work to come to you, as I could not of done this with out you.

Thank you again.

Tillie - Optical Assistant - Bristol

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Anu for all her hard work and effort that she puts into placing me for any locum work that I require. Any request is never too much effort for Anu and she is always so prompt and professional in her response and manner. 

Anu has provided me with an excellent service over the past year or more now and I wouldn't look anywhere else for any locum work as I know Anu will always be at the end of a phone or email to provide a personal service. Anu is a true asset to PPRUK and I would like to praise her for her efforts and commitment to her role. Many Thanks,

Tanya - Locum Optometrist - Berkshire

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 commend you and your team at PPRUK for always helping me find Optometry locum work throughout the UK for the last three years. You are super efficient, helpful and courteous; and always quick to respond to my requests. I am very grateful that I was recommended by a friend to your agency.

I can happily recommend you to all prospective locums.

Janice - Locum Optometrist - Nationwide
I wanted to let you know that I have been very happy with your services. As a company, I've found everyone very professional and friendly. In particular, Anu, she has always been especially helpful. She is very organised and efficient. She is always happy to help and any query she handles very well. I've always had good communication and support from her and your team. Thank you all for all your help and I look forward to working with everyone in the future.

Ruhela - Locum Optometrist - London

Hi Angela 

My name is Chirag. I am a registered locum Optometrist with you. I wanted to bring to your attention the fantastic work of your staff especially Anu and Jake. 

I had a problem recently involving a store and a contract which I did not agree with. It is refreshing to see a company who has such caring staff that help and try to resolve a situation rather than simply concerning themselves with bookings. Your staff have shown me I am working with the right company who care about the needs of their locum and practice clients. 

Being both a practice owner and locum, I shall look no further than PPR UK when it comes to all of my future needs. 

Thank you


Chirag - Locum Optometrist - Kent

I am an optometrist who deals with PPRUK. For the third consecutive year, Anu Jalaf has gone the extra mile and provided me with excellent, timely, friendly service.  I contact Anu and she does her best to find me the best deal in a favourable location. She makes sure I am satisfied with the options, and she does her best to negotiate with the stores. I would not deal with any other agent than Anu.

Adam - Locum Optometrist - Hampshire

Hi Angela,

I will be starting my new job in the first week of October and before I do that, I wanted to let you know how helpful Manny has been. 

He listened to my needs and understood me when I did not like something about a job. He is very attentive with a great manner and sense of humour.  

Thanks to Manny and your team for all your help. 

Kind regards, 


Ashma - Optometrist - Winsford


You are the best agency by a long way.You also are very professional and friendly to deal with. Just carry on as you are.

Many thanks. 

Raymond - Locum Dispensing Optician - South West

I have been using PPRUK since early 2017, and have dealt directly with Anu Jalaf. She has been professional, polite and efficient in organising my locum dates. Anu goes out of her way to be available via phone, email, always making time in her busy schedule to answer any queries I may have. 

I have worked with other Companies before, but have not received this level of care as offered by Anu - she genuinely tries to ensure that the practices she offers will be a 'fit' for my particular Clinical skill set - obviously this works to everyones advantage. 

In summary, Anu Jalaf is efficient and professional, taking the time to ensure both client and candidate get the correct match. This level of attention sets her apart from others in her field

Rohit - Locum Optometrist - Bridport
I have recently been offered a job in an opticians due to the excellent work of your company. I was initially dealing with Leaanne who offered me many options for work in ideal locations and salaries. After this another colleague named Amy was very helpful in sorting out interviews and negotiating a very impressive offer for me.

Anu is by far the best Locum agent I have had the pleasure of booking work with. She takes the time to understand my diary and preferred locations, securing me the best rates available. She is extremely professional and always very helpful and pleasant.

Amy has been extremely helpful in finding me a job that suits my skills set and meets my expectations. She assisted me thoroughly from beginning to end. Whenever I had any difficulties Amy was quick to address and respond to me. She has been like a companion in finding me my role and helping me secure it.

Lea-Anne has been wonderful in helping me secure my new job. I had decided that 2017 would mean a new job for me with a more challenging company.  I received an email from Lea-Anne with a vacancy and thought I would send in my c.v. Two weeks later and the job is mine and I'm due to start end of January.

Lea-Anne has been a huge part of this exciting journey and I am delighted with her help and guidance.  She has been very quick in replyong to my emails and has always reassured me when I had a wobble.

I am very excited about my new job and would like to thank Lea-Anne for her continued support. It's really reassuring to know she is there for the first few months of my journey while I find my feet.

Amy - Optical Assistant - Bristol
Lea-Anne is a first class recruiter, she will know exactly if you are the best candidate for the role. She is very result-focused and also has brilliant people skills. The job that she proposed for me, was exactly what I wanted, working with wonderful people in a very calm and creative environment. I can strongly recommend her for any individuals who are looking for a role in the industry or any company who are looking to hire new personnel.

Anu is an enthusiastic and dedicated recruiter! Always a pleasure interacting with her. She is friendly and polite.

After having bad experiences with recruitment companies, Working with PPR has given me confidence that recruiters care about the business & what the employee wants. Lea-Anne was amazing, she helped me prepare for my first interview after 9 years. Not only did I feel confident, I came across professional & got the job. 

Thanks to the whole team

I'd just like to say a few words about my recent experience with PPRUK and in particular Lea-Anne Barnes.

I am writing to express my immense satisfaction with the service Anu Jalaf provides in the capacity of Regional Locum Consultant with PPRUK. I had first contact with Anu in April 2015. She helped me arrange dates in May and June 2015. I had next contacted Anu in June 2016 to arrange more dates. I contacted Anu by telephone and email. Every correspondence with her has been positive. She is friendly, fast and efficient. I am more than satisfied with the recent block placement she arranged for me in a suitable area for a good rate. It is extremely easy to arrange work with Anu's help.

Christine - Optical Assistant - Leeds

I am writing to say how pleased I have been with the way Lea-Anne Barnes has represented myself during my application for the position of Optical Assistant. Lea Anne seems to be a very supportive, friendly, and a genuine person. Lea Anne has answered any and all questions I posed to her in a friendly and concise way, and always made herself approachable. I never felt I couldn't ask her a question, and Lea Anne even responded to my emails out of normal working hours so I wasn't left without a response. In all honesty Lea Anne has been wonderful and I don't think anything would need to be done to improve the application process. Lea Anne is a true credit to your team!

Jodie - Optical Assistant - Dorset

Jade - Optical Assistant - Dartford

"I have used PPRUK for the past two to three months and they have been very successful at locating locum optometrists at a very short notice.

My direct contact has been a Ms Anu Jalaf who has conducted herself in a very professional and pleasant manner, I especially like the fact that she has been very in tune with our specific requirements for our practise and has managed to find like minded professional optometrist who we would use again.
Anu herself has a very jovial and likeable personality which complements her desire to complete her task in hand efficiently without compromising the needs of the client, another great asset which I have found extremely useful is the fact she is very proactive in keeping myself up-to-date on how she is getting on with finding the right client, her honestly makes it easier for us to ascertain if a clinic is going to be viable, therefore we can then focus on our patients and allows us to cause minimum disruption to our business.

I would definitely recommend PPRUK and especially Anu to any organisation looking for a locum  as she is passionate about her job and does it with great pride."

Sandeep - Resident Optometrist - Sandhurst

"I enjoyed my interview very much as well as speaking to my recruiter Lea-Ann who was ever so kind over the phone and helped me get the job she's ever so kind hearted and over all a great person . Joanna was also amazing to speak to as my interviewer as I enjoyed having a face to face meeting with her very much. Over all I would say it was a great interview and the process of getting the job was very amazing! It was a great experience! As I look forward to now working for my new employer"

Ruweyda - Optical Assistant - London

"I have been surprised by Lea-Anne's contact and all went very fast until the moment I got the job. All I have to stay is the best: incredible approach, competence, with a support that I had never felt since I came to the UK. Lea-Anne was, in short, perfect, adding to all of this a huge dedication. And all of this in a 3 day process! I couldn't recommend you more after this experience. I hope and believe that the future will smile for Lea-Anne - it has to, with that great attitude."

Hi Martine


Thanks for persevering with me both in terms of getting hold of me and in terms of your determination to help me find the right candidate.  So far you are the only one of all the people I have spoken to at the recruitment agencies who has kept in touch, provided candidates and built a relationship with me.   I really appreciate you offering to keep looking as I am aware that this is tough area and some people might have given up by now. 


Kind Regards



Katie - Opticians - Wiltshire

"Hi, I would just like to say a few words about my experience with PPRUK.....The girl I was dealing with, Lea-Anne Barnes was and is amazing. She couldn't do enough to help me throughout the time I was in contact with her while applying for a new job.

She made me feel like a friend and not just a person she was helping to 'find a new job'. She was very polite and helpful throughout. Not only that but even after I had found out I had got the job I was applying for and everything was sorted she still offered her help and service for if I needed her or had any problems after I had started at my new employment.

Even in her absence when I had contacted her and she was unavailable, one of her colleagues got in touch with me to tell me how the situation was and that she wasn't available but would pass my message on to Lea-Anne and get her to get in touch with me on her return. (which she certainly did)

All in all I really appreciate all the help and support I have had from Lea-Anne over the 2 weeks and I would definitely recommend your service to anyone who is in the same situation I was in when I Found PPRUK (or when Lea-Anne found me).Thank you again to PPRUK and especially Lea-Anne.... you are amazing, thank you!! :)"

Carla - Optical Assistant - Derbyshire

I am delighted to provide this recommendation for Anu Jalaf as a Locum Recruitment Consultant.


I have been consistently impressed with Anus attitude since the first day I contacted her to enquire about availabilities for upcoming work.  During the time that she has assisted me with bookings, I found Anu very friendly, intelligent and hard-working and will go the extra mile to help if she is able. She has a deep knowledge of the Ophthalmic sector which she uses effectively to understand which bookings suit.


I unquestionably recommend Anu as a Locum Recruitment Consultant. I am sure that her competence, and demeanour will help other clients to find positions efficiently whilst having tremendous support if needed.
