"A recruitment agency that delivers! I was registered with Plum Personnel for less than a month before I was considered for a role which I was then successful in being offered. The professionalism and candidate care from the offset was outstanding and so impressive.

From the in-depth interview with my consultant upon registering to the honest and open advice about available roles and my suitability. 

This agency has a real personal touch which is why I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for work. 

Thank you so much to Jane, my consultant for being so supportive and the whole team at Plum " JJ




"Just wanted to say how fantastic my consultant at Plum Personnel was in finding me a role that propelled me into the next stage of my career. After being in retail for 15 years, Jakki helped and advised me to what I should try next, and within one week I was offered a position and I couldn't be happier! She was professional and efficient and left me feeling like she really wanted the best for myself. She was delighted when I got the job. I cannot thank her enough and it's because of Jakki that I have a brand new, exciting start to my career. Thank you very much!" Alexandra F



I want to say a big thank you for taking the time to see me and not just asking me to send over a CV.I have not worked for 15 years and this was reflected on my CV, but you still wanted me to come and have a chat with you.  You had a part-time job that you thought I would be suitable for and within a couple of weeks I had an interview and was offered the job.  Wow it just shows that its not always what is on your CV and that's what I love about Plum they treat you like a human. I am thoroughly enjoying my part-time reception job and fits so well in with my family.  Thank you so much Plum you are amazing” Sue H


I never thought I would find my next path in my career journey. Then Plum came along with THE best opportunity I could have ever dreamt of. Without sounding 'cheesey' Caroline helped me find my dream job which ticks every box for me:- location, company, culture people and prospects. I am still smiling from ear to ear and have so much to thank you for Caroline. You were a superstar and kept me in the loop throughout the whole process.  I am so grateful and will do my upmost to 'smash it'! Thanks again Caroline and Plum Jane D


Following our meeting I thought I would write to say it was great talking to you and meeting your colleagues. I have noted the points you made about my CV and will expand in more detail. I am most grateful to all of you for taking the time to speak with me. I can say that of all the agencies I enlisted with, none seemed as genuinely interested or supportive of trying to help me find a job as you. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you. Wishing you the best for the future, Ashley B


Caroline you made me feel more confident in my abilities after I met you yesterday. You have such in-depth knowledge of various fields and your inputs were more than valuable. In all my professional experience I have not met a consultant like you who matches, maps/understands a potential job seekers capabilities to the jobs available at the agency. I want to find a job quickly with Plum so I can make you proud. Thanks for your  in me. Priya B

Plum Personnel was an excellent recruitment agency for me, they found me a job on the day I registered with them and really supported me when I applied for a permanent job. Ciaran P


Plum Personnel was an excellent recruitment agency for me, they found me a job on the day I registered with them and really supported me when I applied for a permanent job. When I forgot to fax my time sheet they rang me up to ensure I didn't miss the deadline plus they sent me a birthday card and at Christmas gave me chocolates! This personal approach really sets them apart from other recruitment agencies. I felt very secure and satisfied with their service, they have a friendly, honest, proactive attitude andI couldn't recommend them highly enoughHannah D

I just wanted to say 'thank you' to the team for all your help this year with helping me to find work and for supporting me during my temp assignments with you. The help you've given me before/during/post interview has been second to none and also ensuring that I only get considered for suitable roles is very refreshing. Thank you so much for providing that personal touch during my assignments with you and I look forward to working with you again. Anna R
