Candidate Endorsements

Joe has been amazing.  Being made redundant was a real shock and he made me feel at ease from the minute I spoke to him. He gave me lots of advice and lined up some interviews with two great companies. Can’t say a bad word about him or the service from EMBS! – CNC Miller, Derby 

James met me in his own time out of hours and he bought the coffee. He helped work out what I wanted to do next, we got a good CV together and he managed to get me three interviews.  Last week I started in a new role as a Quality Manager.  I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks, I’ve talked to agencies before but with James I really felt he cared about what he was doing! Quality Manager, Uttoxeter. 

I started off on a contract that James put me forward for. I wasn’t expecting it to go so well. I am so pleased that James contacted me as I’ve now accepted a permanent position. Sheet Metal Worker, Coventry
