What our clients say about the services we offer...

We have been working with Liverpool in Work for a number of years now and I can only speak highly of the support the team provides our growing business. The construction industry is suffering a skill shortage and therefore it is essential to recruit new people to the industry, people who are willing to work hard and learn new skills. Liverpool in Work have sourced some of our most ambitious and dedicated apprentices and these individuals have gone on to become valuable assets to our company, under-going the floor laying NVQ to become qualified floor layers. One of the candidates introduced to us by Liverpool in work showed exceptional potential and dedication and has now been promoted in to a managerial role. We find partnering with Liverpool in Work to source apprentices far more effective than attempting to do so by ourselves as they have done the hard work for us in a pre-screening service, which saves us time and money and we find that the quality of people that come from them to be exceptional. I have already recommended Liverpool in Work to other business’s looking to recruit apprentices and we would love to see more of these types of services in other regions where we are struggling to find the same quality of individuals to bring in to our organisation.

Lucy Keher - Director Active Flooring Solutions

I would like to thank you and the service you provide to us with email alerts for tender opportunities within the city which has given us another outlet in order to get more work.  We have recently won the contract to provide the Internal Steel Frames for the new retail centre, cinema and 6 restaurants in Speke with McLaren Group and on the back of the initial order, we have last week won the Balustrade Package in the cinema with order value combined close on £1 million. This has now enabled us to take on another 2 apprentices provided by Liverpool in Work. The lads are brilliant and you’re pre-screening and providing them with their CSCS cards has been a great help to us.  I’m sure these 2 lads will be as good as the other young lad you provided, who is now on year 2 of his 3 year apprenticeship. Keep up the great work, not only are you getting New Apprentices into the Industry, you are also securing employment for all other staff.

Stephen Griffin - Director Webber (NW) Ltd

The service we have received from Liverpool in Work has been exceptional, the support, organisation and help they have provided has been a massive help. We held a recruitment day which was supported and organised through the Business Team and from that event, have managed to secure some excellent employees for our business. Liverpool in Work have been an invaluable help and support in the ongoing recruitment process for Sugar Hut Liverpool. Matthew Hobson General Manager

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lynne Debbazi and Liverpool in Work for all the support they have given our company, Spire Logistics. We were based on site at Liverpool Football Club’s new stand . I contacted Lynne whenever we needed staff for the site. All it took was a phone call, and the next day we had our labourers on site!  I found them to be good workers who stayed with us until the end of contract. We also recruited young people for work placements from Lynne’s Construction Routeway.  We employed over 20 local people, some having been moved to our new site on the Baltic Triangle.  I would like to give Lynne a BIG thank you! We know who we will be calling when we need more staff !!!”  John McHue - Project Manager Spire Logistics

Tony Dolan, Managing Director at Crosby Construction Ltd

“Without Liverpool in Work our move to Liverpool would not have been possible. The amount of work that is required to advertise and shortlist candidates is immense and this support from Liverpool in Work has been excellent throughout.”

Bill Shotten, CEO - H2Energy

    ‘I would like to thank you for all your help and support over the last couple of months during the recruitment process. I think the role you play in supporting start-ups like us is very beneficial indeed. Getting help for real work rather than a lot of advice is what SMEs most often need but don't always get. So, many thanks to you and your team. I dread to think how I would have effectively sifted through the vast number of CVs that were received!’   Chief Operating Officer- new medical start up business    

Chief Operating Officer For New Medical Business

      Liverpool in Work, has provided my business with a fully subsidised recruitment solution. I decided to use the service as my business was growing and I needed more people to continue to offer the level of service my customers are used to. Initially I was unsure if Liverpool in Work would suit the high skill-set the position required, but my fears were soon allayed when I read the CVs that were emailed. I have recruited two full time positions and am about to use the service for a third time. Liverpool at Work is genuinely making a difference to small businesses and the local economy and deserves the support it receives.            

Dominic Evans - Managing Director Of Domec Limited

Victoria Adlard - Administrator - Liverpool & Merseyside Theatres Trust - Everyman & Playhouse

Over the past 3.5 years since opening, Liverpool in Work have provided me with a professional and invaluable service. I would recommend it to any employer but especially small businesses where there is not the luxury of a personnel department.

Candice Fonseca - Proprietor Delifonseca

Samantha Carmody started working for us on 21/3/12. Already she has had a positive impact on the company. Co-workers have praised her for her ability to relate to the Service Users and the excellent care she provides. Her manager, Tracey Gilmore, said that Sam had told her after her first day shadowing, that she already felt that this was the job for her, and that she would be very happy doing it. Tracey said that her enthusiasm is really refreshing. I also asked for Service User feedback from a Service User who makes regular complaints. He was full of praise about Sam, stating that she is a 'natural carer' and he and his wife feel very comfortable with her.

"I just wanted to say how well Brian in particular, interviewed. He had a very person centred approach and made it clear that he had learnt a lot on your course. "

"As part of our commitment to 'localism' for the use of local labour and trades GB Building Solutions felt that it was important to demonstrate this commitment. In conjunction with Liverpool In Work we were able to notify a rich seam of trades and services who, thankfully, presented themselves at our Supplier Engagement day to register their details with us which we now wish to take forward and expand our supply chain. Liverpool In Work have been extremely proactive and helpful to us in this matter and I would strongly recommend that any other companies who are seeking to win public or private works in Liverpool make use of them."

John Owen, Communications Manager NW

"Liverpool at work is a great service that helped me set up the majority of staff for a new store within a weeks notice. I will be using it in the future and have passed them on to a number of my colleagues to benefit from the really good work that they do. All my applicants had received an application form, been screened and invited to an interview within the week and at one of their locations. I only needed 5 employees but wished I could have taken more due to the high standard of the applicants. Time saving and of a really good quality!"

Mark Williams, Store Manager- Tesco Express
