"Widney have used NRS as our sole temporary recruitment service for 3 years now. The standard of candidates is generally very good. Nathan and Kelly are our point of contacts they give a very professional and personal service, understanding our needs and requirements impeccably. The quality and suitability of the candidates is such that we regularly retain them onto our books after the initial period. I would have no hesitation in recommending NRS as a recruitment partner going forward."

"Started using Nelson Recruitment to support with our temporary agency requests a couple of months ago, following the success of this, I reached out to them to see if they could assist me with permanent recruitment. The job I was recruiting for was a niche job and I wasn’t holding out much hope but how wrong was I! Within a very short time and with minimal information provided, they sourced the perfect candidate who started with us a couple of weeks ago. I will now go to Nelson Recruitment with all my recruitment needs as they exceeded my expectations."

"To whom it may concern: Yazaki have used temporary staff for over 2 years now for a very busy automotive rework contract and initially we only used one supplier for the whole of this term. In November of last year after numerous discussions with Billy Farley, We began to use NRS for temporary requirements and from day 1 they have by far out shone the other supplier. We now only use NRS for our recruitment needs. NRS Tamworth has been able to pre interview and vet the candidates with sufficient confidence for our company to accept their word as to the capability and suitability to come straight into our rework operation and display good working practice and productivity. The professional and personal approach available even after hours, has allowed our company to service our new orders with sufficient man power to achieve the service we need for our customers. I would not hesitate in recommending NRS as recruitment partner and look forward to continuing to work with Billy in the future."
"Nelson Recruitment have been incredible consistent with the service they have provided to us over the years. We have always liked to keep the communication clear and to a minimum with one key contact, Nelson have always been able to provide that. Good clear and prompt communication via multiple means leads to a very open and trusting partnership. There is no doubt we will always encounter some difficult individuals with the introduction of the necessary temporary labour, but Nelson Recruitment’s pre-placement work does keep this to a minimum. Contact changes are kept to a minimum, but whenever there is a change you can tell that the key traits remain within the business. A new contact will always endeavour to learn about our contacts and our history, building to a continued strong understanding of our business, which is key when it comes to recruiting. I know that I can pick up the phone and just briefly describe the position I want to fill and our main contact within Nelson Recruitment will have a strong understanding of the position and the character type we will be looking for."
"Due to a significant increase in orders which needed to be processed & dispatched within a very short lead time, we needed to consider how we would provide our one of our Key Account Customer with the level of service they were demanding. In order to achieve this we had no alternative but to introduce a Night Shift where clearly additional resources & machinery were required to deal with the demand. As time was of the essence we contacted NRS who within 24 hours organised a meeting with ourselves to understand our requirements & to consider the best approach to meet our needs, within a further 48 hours the resources were supplied to commence the tasks at hand. I was extremely pleased that the NRS team took full ownership to ensure that the right mix of personal were found, in addition also they took full responsibility at the outset of the shift to ensure that the chosen personal actually turned up for work. After one month of running 2 shifts we are now in complete control of our Order Book requirements which in itself is testimony to the service of NRS & the quality of people they chose to carry out the varying activities within the Warehouse, I would certainly recommend the services of NRS to any company that requires a speedy & professional response to meet the needs of their business."

"TPN prides itself with being the quality provider within the pallet network sector, so the standard of counterbalance drivers we require is of a paramount importance to us as our warehouse is an extremely busy and demanding environment. Nelson Recruitment services understand our requirements and because of this they have consistently supplied us with counterbalance drivers since 2015. Brandon has been our point of contact at NRS for the past few years and does a brilliant job with our requirements without fail, it is a pleasure to work with her."

"Nelson Recruitment Services have been our number one supplier for Warehouse Operatives, Forklift Truck Drivers and Van Drivers since October 2019. Previous to this I was using another recruitment agency, however, NRS soon took the lead which was all down to the communication, honesty and quality of service i was recieving. We have had four of their candidates become full time employees of RAK after their thirteen week temp to perm period, one of which is now my team leader. The quality of all the staff they have supplied have been exceptional. I would not hesitate to recommend NRS as a employment agency to any other business who has a need."

Frequently Asked Questions
It is worth using a recruitment agency because they save employers time and money by finding the right candidates for your company. This is not easy and the people in your business are always the most important success factor. Recruitment Agencies have access to a large pool of qualified candidates and can guide you in how to attract the best people. Additionally, recruitment agencies have vast experience working with both employers and employees, so they can help you navigate the hiring process smoothly and efficiently.
The costs of a recruitment agency can vary depending on the number of jobs they are trying to fill and the scarcity of candidates in the market. For example, if there is a lot of competition for talent, the agency may charge more to find the best candidates. On average, agencies typically charge between 15-25% of the first year’s salary for their services. Sometimes agencies also require a retainer fee or an upfront payment to cover advertising costs.
A recruitment agency helps employers find suitable employees for their teams. They work on behalf of the employer, and usually have a large pool of candidates to choose from.
The recruitment process usually begins with the agency understanding the business requirements and then creating the desired job description. Once the description is approved and advertised the agency will find candidates who match the employer’s job requirements. They then assess the candidates’ skills and qualifications and help the employer select the best person for the job.
The recruitment agency also helps with onboarding new employees and provides support throughout the employment process.
Yes, recruitment agencies can definitely help you find a job!
They have the resources and contacts to help you connect with employers looking for candidates like you.
As a candidate, you will typically meet with a recruiter to discuss your skills, experience, and career goals. They will then work with you to identify appropriate job opportunities. You should also receive guidance and feedback along the way to improve your chances of sealing the ideal job.
Don’t forget that it’s important to be selective about which recruitment agencies you work with – do your research to make sure they have a good reputation and understand your needs.
Typically agency work means you work for a recruitment agency to do temporary work for their clients. In the UK, agency workers have certain rights under the Agency Workers Regulations.
The agencies act as a go-between for businesses and workers. The business uses the agency to find workers for specific tasks or projects, and the worker uses the agency to find fast and flexible employment.
The assumption with many agencies is that the worker is available for hire on a short-term basis. This can be for a day, a week, or even just a few hours. The nature of the work can be varied as well—from manual labour to office work and everything in between.
There’s no doubt that agency work can be a great way to build up your CV and get some fantastic experience under your belt. Not to mention a fast way to get income without the commitment of a permanent job. Working for an agency can also be great for networking, as you’ll get to meet lots of different people from all sorts of businesses.
The downside of agency work is that it can be quite unpredictable – you might end up working long hours on one job, and then find yourself with nothing to do for a few days. This can make it difficult to manage your finances, as you won’t have a guaranteed income every month. With the job market, the way it is currently, NRS will be able to offer a job very quickly.
If you’re thinking of doing some agency work, it would be to speak to people who have done it before and get their thoughts or speak to NRS for more information.
Agency workers do not necessarily get paid more than permanent staff, but there is no law prohibiting employers from doing so. In some cases, agencies may charge their clients a higher rate for agency workers than they would for permanent staff. This is due to the fact that agencies often have to pay their workers a higher rate in order to attract and retain talent. However, this is not always the case, and it really depends on the specific industry and market conditions.
Yes, it is possible for agency workers to become permanent employees.
In some cases, an agency worker may be offered the opportunity to become a permanent employee after working for the company for a certain period of time.
There are also times when an agency worker may be offered a permanent position if there is no longer a need for temporary workers within the company. This usually happens when the company is going through a period of growth and needs more employees than what can be sourced through an agency.
