  • I have used many agencies during my time as Operations Manager over the last 20 years. When I found myself redundant and interacting with agencies I found the situation infuriating. However, Burns Recruitments hard work and bright personality stood out during first meetings. I did not feel as though i was just another candidate. Their strength is communication and a key part to the process, food feedback and touching base regularly made Burns Recruitment standout from the rest. And I mean Stand Out. This has been a major factor in my decision to use Burns in subsequent casual and permanent recruitment since. Lance - Aberdare

Unfortunately, I had become rather cynical about the poor service of some agencies I had dealt with. I have worked with Angela for many years and was delighted when she set up Burns Recruitment as in my experience Angela had taken the time to learn how I like to work and to understand our business.
