I was approached by Lewis for a position in a well-respected asset management company in London. Since our first meeting I have been consistently impressed with Lewis' attitude and sharp mind. Through the entire process he was always available to answer my questions and provided me with great insights about the role and the team. Thanks to him I was fully prepared for the interviews as he has covered all the different angles. For this application, Lewis was definitely the X factor that’s helped me to land this position.
From day one, Alex has given us with a friendly and professional service that is second to none. We have been working together for approximately a year, and I would consider D&A Recruitment my first call for temporary staff. Alex is able to provide us with good quality drivers at short notice and has got me out of trouble on many occasions! I know that no matter our requirements, he will find someone suitable for the job.
We have been using Jordan through D&A Group for around 4 years to supply us HGV drivers for Holiday and Sickness Cover. Jordan Is always professional and quick to respond when booking drivers and does his best to supply candidates who have worked in similar roles to enable we get the most out of them when working for Garretts Transport. Jordan supply’s drivers from 7.5t up to Class 1.
I have been working with Jordan for five or so years on and off and have always his service and effort on my behalf, from the signing up process to any customer requirements he has always explained the processes fully, further I know he is diligently working to ensure we have as much work as possible. Both he and the team at D&A have my/our best interests at heart and have a highly professional but very friendly approach which really makes them a delight to work for.
With D&A I can always feel 100% confident that I will receive the best staff for my team, Marc has never let me down and his 24/7 service is second to none. I have never had a person through the door that does not fit the bill. I know Marc is only a phone call away and would recommend his excellent service to any employer looking to add to their team. Cannot praise enough!
I've been working for D&A and Marc Dockerill for around three months and have now been offered a permanent contract. Throughout this time Marc has been very professional and has called periodically to see how I'm getting on which is something that is quite rare in my experience of other agencies. I never had any problems with my pay either which is so important when you're working weekly. I would happily recommend Marc and D&A to other jobseekers and agency workers.
