    Arshia - Recruitment Officer

    "Chequers Contract Services Ltd is a multi award winning, Croydon based service provider of School, Office and Commercial Cleaning and Grounds Maintenance services to many distinguished clients across Greater London and the South of England.

     

    Croydon Works are an essential Job Brokerage Service offering support to local residents of Croydon Council.

     

    Over the past year, we have worked closely with their enthusiastic team and they have never failed to substantially deliver a high calibre of candidates we could only hope for. Our latest recruit sits well within our Administration Department and we also look forward to welcoming another experienced candidate in a couple of days. Without the help of Adhnan and Tufael, we would not have received this quality of sourcing.

     

    We will continue to work very closely with Croydon Works and can only imagine what comes of their 2nd year with plenty of successful years to follow.

     

    They define the meaning of Supporting Local Businesses and we would recommend their services to anyone looking for Training and Recruitment support with the most pro-active approach."

    "Croydon Works is keen to help “harder to reach” job seekers find employment or better job opportunities and has taken on that objective with commitment and enthusiasm, providing those local to Croydon with opportunities to join in. The ‘Employability Fair’ back in the summer was an ideal opportunity for Gatwick Airport to engage with the Croydon job seeking audience about the Airport’s five-year referencing requirements.  Croydon Works has been an energetic promoter of Gatwick Airport jobs and encouraging candidates to get their five-year history (education, employment and any unemployment) details together"

    Judi - Operations Manager

    "I found Croydon Works extremely helpful which made the whole process of employing staff really quick and effective.

     

    As a supplier of services on behalf of Croydon Council we have Social Value targets to meet as part of our contract so it is important for us to employ local people to deliver local services. We currently have 86% of our work force both living and working within the Croydon Borough. We are proud of this high percentage and endeavour to retain or even increase it over time.

     

    I contacted Croydon Works to enquire if they had any candidates that would be interested in some permanent cleaning work. I gave the details of the positions, the contractual hours and the hourly rates of pay.

     

    Adnan came back to me very quickly with the names of possible candidates and included their CV’s. He also gave me an overview of the applicants which I found really helpful.

     

    I was then asked who I would like to interview and when would be a convenient time for them to be held.


    They subsequently arranged the interviews and I’m very pleased to say we have employed 3 of the 4 candidates! All have been real assets to our team and we are happy to have them on board. I will definitely be contacting Croydon Works again.

     

    A real success story!"

    "Since the very beginning of the Project (Galaxy House for Menta Redrow), we’ve experienced difficulties with finding labour. Croydon Works scheme offered a lot of help supplying people to my site.At the moment we have two young lads working on site thanks to Peter Wallace who has always been a great help for us.

     

     Every council in this City should have a scheme like Croydon has. It would make our job a lot easier. "

    "Croydon works have been substantial in delivering candidates to Potensis for numerous projects in the Croydon and surrounding areas.

     

    I/We work closely with Peter Wallace (who is exceptional in his distribution of candidates). Peter Wallace has really come through for us, in our starved times of not having any candidates to place on projects. 

     

    I would recommend Croydon works to any employer who need aid in filling projects."

    Recently we employed a candidate that was put forward by Humberto. We interviewed the candidate on 7th September and made a job offer and started on 11th September 2017. I believe the preparation that the consultant did made it easy for me to employ the right candidate.

    "Humberto has been my Consultant both prior to him joining Croydon Works as well as whilst working for Croydon Works. On both occasions he has successfully secured me permanent employment.

     

    Humberto always goes above and beyond to match the right candidate to the right job, he is extremely skilled in both his ability to generate new roles, as well as making sure candidates feel that their job search and expectations are managed. He maintains regular contact and always provides updates on how your job search is going.

     

    Out of all the Consultants I have worked with, Humberto is by far the best in his field and I couldn't be more grateful for his hard work and dedication. His skill and expertise in the field of recruitment is invaluable."
