candidate testimonials

After finding myself redundant after working over 45 years, I applied for a permanent admin job role through First Choice recruitment in Wakefield. Having always worked, the fact that I was out of work at a certain age was becoming very depressing. Unfortunately prior to me contacting First Choice I discovered that there was a lot of ageism about as a number of ladies my age can confirm, even though we all have life experience and the skills and abilities to do the role. Not a lot of agencies see that. First Choice, however, are totally different than other agencies, they were absolutely amazing, treating all candidates equally and in a professional and courteous manner. From the very first communication with Becky to the final interviews with the company, all the staff at First Choice were constantly in touch with me, keeping me informed of any further developments throughout the process. I was fortunate to secure a permanent position with the company I applied to and I was over the moon. Not only that, but a fortnight into my new role Becky took the time out to come to the office where I work in Wakefield and presented me with a huge beautiful bouquet of flowers. What a fantastic gesture! Thank you all at First Choice Recruitment, Wakefield. You are fantastic!

It is genuinely a very rare occurrence for me to write reviews, but the service I received from Sue and Claire at First Choice was really so exceptional, I feel obliged to! From my initial sit down with Sue to any questions I ever had regarding the position they found me, were responded to so quickly. I've personally found recruitment companies to focus on sales and figures etc, so to be able to rely on First Choice to provide such a high level of customer service was a rarity.

Would love to work with them again.

Following my redundancy (21 years with the same Company) as an Accounts Administrator, I found it difficult to find something that would suit my employment needs, however, following a Temporary Accounts Assistant position advertised by First Choice Recruitment, I applied for and was offered a position with Asda in their Accounts Team in Leeds.

The First Choice Team were friendly, helpful and professional every step of the way, furnishing me with all the relevant paperwork, direction and assistance in making my employment with them and Asda trouble free and a very enjoyable experience. The First Choice Payments Team were also extremely efficient and knowledgeable and wages and holiday pay were always paid on time with no quibbles. I would have no hesitation in recommending First Choice Recruitment for future employment, temporary or permanent (thanks to them I am now enjoying permanent employment with Asda Accounts).

Fantastic agency to work for, nice group of people, really friendly and professional under difficult circumstances. I’ve been working for them for over 18 months in temporary positions and they helped me to secure a full time job which is life changing for me. They have looked after me and are a great bunch of people. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for work.

Andy Whitely

I’d just been made redundant from my previous job, I had a young family and I needed to talk to someone who could guide me in the right direction and see the potential in me. That’s what Anne and Andy and the team do – they see potential and give people opportunities. They found me a temporary position working for one of their clients and after 2 years that client took me on permanently. Since then I’ve been promoted twice, won a National Recognition award and gone from strength to strength working for an employee who values me and doing a job that fulfils me - they changed our lives.

I could not pass up this opportunity, to send a brief note with appreciation of the consideration and understanding you showed me, during my term working with you folks. [FIRST CHOICE AGENCY]

The administration team were very efficient in all my personal issues, especially understanding my family commitments, also payments & payroll queries were promptly dealt with, all in all I was very impressed with the whole team’s professionalism, and I did enjoy my time on the team with you all.
So it just remains for me to say a big thanks for all the support and assistance you contributed, to my successful application with COCA-COLA.

I joined First Choice about 6 months ago, I was looking for temporary employment that could fit around my other commitments. I found the staff very helpful and understanding towards my specific needs and I was kept regularly updated with progress on suitable roles for me. I found the advice and support I received was exemplary. Within weeks they found me a role that fitted me perfectly and I have enjoyed being in this role ever since.

I would like to thank First Choice Recruitment for all the help and support I received during my job search and ultimate assignment. The process was completely new to me after being in permanent employment all my life and after a great change in circumstances late in my career. I was guided through the whole system of C.V.'s, job application, interview and job match smoothly and professionally and was found a suitable post within a week. I was particularly helped by my key manager Sue Morris who was always positive and upbeat. After I started in my new role Sue regularly checked in with me by phone, sorted out the pay system and timesheet process - payslips are always issued by email prior to payday and I have never had any problems. I would certainly recommend First Choice Recruitment to anyone looking for help, advice and guidance in the job search market - they are amazing!


I'd just like to thank you and Sally for your help...that's really the first time I've applied for a job via an agency and I thought you guys were fab

From walking through the door to starting a temporary assignment 2 days later, the staff at First Choice were all excellent. I was provided with options in line with what I was looking to do at the time and the process was smooth and efficient. After my initial temporary role, I was offered an opportunity to support the First Choice team in the office and later as an Interim Account Manager. I was treated as part of the team immediately. Having visited a number of clients with Andy it was great to see how much he genuinely cares about providing work for local people and maintaining his network of contacts. A true gentleman
