Testimonials for Working Solutions

I found XXX a really good team member, very hard working, he slotted in straight away. Very adaptable to the role and very conscientious and polite.

I also found dealing with your company was very easy and certainly helped us out on this occasion.


I started with XXX this Monday and I’m loving it!


Thank you so much.  It is a perfect for me on many levels.  It was a very clever match on your part!  You clearly understood what I was looking for and my priorities and aims.  Likewise, I’m a good fit for the immediate role and for growing it, as I become more experienced - giving Y and Z what they were looking for. 


I am so glad that following our long conversation I did decide to meet/interview with Y and Z.  You’ll recall I was in two minds as the money was on the low side.  I found the questions that you asked me to be very helpful and insightful.  It helped me unravel my tangled thoughts (and emotions).  I especially value that you listened patiently and treated me like a person throughout and I didn’t feel like a tick on a list.


So I’d like to thank you on a professional level and a very sincere personal level.  I didn’t say much at the time, but after 20 years with the same employer in XXX, I found job hunting very challenging for all sorts of reasons.  But, with hind-sight, … I guess you’d figured that out J.


Also, the support you gave me with my CV was absolutely brilliant.

I didn’t really thank you properly for putting me forward for this job.  He is a very pleasant man to work for and I’m thoroughly enjoying the work I’m doing for him.  The work is the most demanding I have done for a while and is giving me a great deal of satisfaction, it’s good to be working the grey matter again!

I cannot thank Julia enough for finding my present job role for me. She supported me from start to finish, advised during the interview process, always available to chat and kept me fully updated on my application. She still checks in on me now and I have been in the post for a month. I cannot thank you enough Julia for finding me my perfect job!

I am a Consultant in the Health & Social Care sector and as anyone who works in the provider sector will know there is a real problem, particularly in rural areas, in recruiting a Registered Manager of the right quality.

I and my Client, had been looking for such a person for some 4 months. We had used all of the standard industry recruitment agencies and had also enlisted the services of a specialist head-hunter; all to no avail.

With my Client becoming ever more pressurized by the regulatory authorities we placed the recruitment process totally with Working Solutions. They responded immediately, completed their research very quickly and soon we were presented with candidates of an extremely high quality.

Their service did not stop there as they supported the Directors through to the appointment.

Working Solutions provided a professional, knowledgeable and personal service, the combination of which resulted in the appointment of an exceptional manager.

Thank you Julia for your guidance. Your suggestions on how I should tailor my CV to suit the position and your advice prior to the interview was a great help. When we spoke after the interview I could see that you really took the time to understand my skills and experiences and I am so glad I took your advice. I have settled in to my new role very quickly and I would have no hesitation in recommending your agency.


Good morning Julia

I'm sorry I didn't call you yesterday. I was handing over the house and collected some furniture. My first day was superb! It's a great feeling to love my job again.. :)

Thank you


Hello Julia,

I've been meaning to write to you for the past couple of weeks.  XX is going great! The people are all very approachable... As you already know it's great for me to be working in this industry and I am jumping upon every opportunity I get to learn more about it. The research manager has given me my first research project and I am really keen to get stuck in.

Warm regards



Hi Andy

I'd be delighted to start on Monday 14th and will look out for the offer letter at home.

Thank you for all your help in getting this permanent post.  I have been on temporary assignments for 'large' agencies in Shrewsbury and Telford for the last eight months and none have been successful in pointing me in the direction of the right permanent job.  You managed to do this at your first attempt! I am most grateful and will recommend your agency to others.

Best regards



Dear XXX and XXXX,

I just wanted to thank you very much for all the hard work you put into the project we employed you to do. I know it was a long, boring and repetitive job, but I can’t emphasise enough how crucial that information has been to the business.

I am very pleased to say that the Senior Management Team viewed all the data last week and have made a significant fundamental operational decision which will help to develop our future business. Our CEO managed to thank XXXXX in person, and so on behalf of us all, please accept our sincere thanks for all your hard work – it’s been very much appreciated.

Hi Julia,

It is going really well so far!  I am enjoying the work/training. Everyone is really friendly and have made me feel really welcome. Such a change from my last job, much more relaxed!!

Thank you so much for helping me with this opportunity, it came at exactly the right time for me!



Thanks Julia

Yes EW is getting on really well, on lots of courses but keen to learn which is great. Thanks very much to Simon for helping us with this. I would definitely recommend Working Solutions. Payment will be sent today.


Hello Julia

The work that F has done has been a great help throughout our busiest period. Our need for her will end on after Friday 14th February.

I would advise you that she has been very adaptable & pleasant to work with and would recommend her for general office assistance to others.

Many thanks



Can I take this opportunity to say thanks for everything you have done for me. 

I have definitely appreciated the temporary work!



A really helpful and professional company, I would certainly recommend them to anybody looking for the help of recruitment agency.




Thank you so much. You were so helpful and I am so grateful for you getting me this new position.



Hi Simon,

My husband Chris and I came to see you a couple of years ago as we were (and still are) looking to relocate to the Ludlow area. We both really appreciated the time you spent with us.  I visit your website regularly and I always thought it was very good.  It was a lovely surpise to see the new one today though!

One of the things that really struck a cord with me is that you are driven by quality and professionalism, not by targets.  How refreshing to find people who think the same way as we do!

I do hope all is going well.  You never know, something may turn up for Chris and me soon - here's hoping!

Best wishes to you all. 



When assisting to help find the right role for me, Simon Lambourne of Working Solutions Recruitment was very professional in his approach. Simon’s efficiency, communication skills and willing to help attitude made me feel at ease when going for my Interview. Thanks to Simon & his team I am looking forward to starting my new job in the very near future. Thank you for all your help Simon

Kind Regards



I called in Working Solutions on the off chance one day to see if they had any possible vacancies. I was warmly welcomed by Julia and Simon who spent a considerable amount of time going through my various options and gave me valuable practical advice regarding the best places to look to find a suitable vacancy and how my CV could be improved to look more attractive to potential employers. Just over a week later I got a phone call from Julia about a possible vacancy and my details were passed onto them. Once a date for the interview was fixed I visited Simon at Working Solutions who gave me advice on the best way to approach the interview and what phrases to say and not to say in the interview. The new role involved payroll so Jack also brought me up to speed on the latest legislation and the major changes that has occurred in the last few years because I had not done payroll for a few years. I was able to attend the interview with more confidence and I can gladly say that I secured the role. I would like to thank everyone at Working Solutions because they were all prepared to give up their time and provide me with every assistance that I needed to ensure that I landed the ideal job. 



I approached Working Solutions after completing my Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree with the intention of discovering my next career step. Julia and Simon took a very professional approach in discussing my attributes and career goals in order to build up my CV and strengthen my interview skills.

I now have a career working for a leading global provider of sustainable products for the construction industry. None of this would have been possible without the help and guidance of Working Solutions. Thank you both for such a helpful and successful process.



I would like to take time to offer my thanks for all your help – you really have been first class and it is very much appreciated.

Kind Regards



Hi Julia, good to hear from you! Absolutely loving my job!! NH


Hi, Thank you! I do appreciate you sending me on that assignment; I would not be in such a fortunate position as I am now if you hadn't put me forward. Thanks again, EG


Thanks Julia, Thanks for all the feedback on the CV. I wish everyone gave that much advice for free! Even if you don't find anything else, you have definitely been a force for the positive in my job search. BB


Hi Julia, We were all very happy with XXX. She seems to have exactly the skills we need, a flexible 'can-do' attitude and she seems a great fit personality-wise. So we are very happy! Thank you very much for your help. KG


Working Solutions were a god send. I had finished university ( BSc 1st in International Hospitality Management) and needed to find a temporary job for the summer. Julia Hughes informed me of the various positions Working Solutions had available. She was very knowledgeable and insightful about each job and the hospitality establishment where I would be based. After she spent time one-on-one time with me, understanding what type of job role I would be best suited for, she helped me obtain a dream job! Cooking for the cast of a movie, which was being filmed locally. I had one of the best experiences of my life thanks to Working Solutions and I cannot recommend them highly enough for their professionalism and support! MM


Julia, Thank you so much for sparing the time to discuss my situation vis-a- vis the job market yesterday afternoon. Also, many thanks for the online training. I shall be practising and will keep in touch. With kind regards AH


Dear Julia / Working Solutions, I'd like to thank you for your efforts in finding me a suitable role so quickly and efficiently. I'm settling into my new role well and wish working solutions every success in the future. Best wishes DH


Hi Julia,Thank you again. It was a really useful exercise for me and helped to clarify the fact that I have 20 plus years of work left and need to take some time out to reassess what I want to do with it.All the best KG


Thank you Julia, May I say it was really a pleasure to meet you. It is a long time since I have met someone who operates like yourself or myself who can manage multiple ideas conversations and projects at the same time and think follow up ideas. It is fabulous and I feel most energised. CW


I didn't get a chance to tell you how much I appreciated you taking time out for myself on a Friday afternoon to go through my cv in a very professional manner, its the most help I have had since I was made redundant. Thankyou, and hope to hear from you soon. MM


Hi Stephanie, I would like to thank you for your help in getting me a new job. I have been very pleased with the response from yourselves and would have no hesitation in recommending your firm. Yours JG
