Yes, people know that we’ve been in the industry for almost 40 years, and in that time we’ve made a lot of customers very happy. But what have we got to show for it? This is what our testimonials page is for.
They are living, breathing proof of our claims, giving Central Employment the chance to enhance our enviable reputation and show people that what’s written in our website is not just generic jibber jabber. It shows that what we claim is true, and we have people to attest to that.
“I will never hesitate to recommend Central”

‘I take the opportunity to thank Central Employment for the wonderful support you have given me, you provided me with constant employment throughout the lockdowns. Please pass my sincere thanks to Phil and all the team. I will never hesitate to recommend Central.’
“Central Employment were able to provide several suitable workers on very short notice to help get us through our busiest ever period.”
John Holmes - I Love Wallpaper
I Love Wallpaper began to use Central Employment in March 2020 for temporary warehouse staff. We, on very short notice, needed to double our workforce to run two shifts. Central Employment were able to provide several suitable workers on very short notice to help get us through our busiest ever period.
Shaun Kyle primarily manages the account, and he has been instrumental in ensuring we are getting the best possible staff – whether it be for temporary labour or specialized roles within the business.
Shaun has created a specialized induction for any new staff, and he visits site regularly to conduct appraisals, attend meetings and induct new workers for the talent pool.
Due to the nature of the industry and the challenges that have arose throughout 2020, a lot of our staffing needs are very short notice – and we have never been let down by Central Employment despite the tight time constraints.
I began my time at I Love Wallpaper via Central Employment, and it was Shaun who placed me here and arranged that. We have a fantastic working relationship; he has been fantastic to work with to find the right people to keep driving our business forward and match customer demand which has been at an all time high.
I look forward to continuing to work with Central Employment and would highly recommend them for any staffing needs.
““The quality of temporary labour is high, and a bespoke induction programme has been created to reflect the different needs across our three sites””
Central Employment Agency have been supporting PACCOR since 2017 following issues we faced with our previous temporary labour supplier. I can confidently say that since we started a working relationship with Central, that we have had no concerns at all, and have since utilised their services across all three of our sites within the UK for both temporary and permanent placements.
Faye is currently our main point of contact and has supported our temporary recruitment requirements across the North East and Midlands and has offered an exemplary service. The quality of temporary labour is high, and a bespoke induction programme has been created to reflect the different needs across our three sites; supporting a smoother transition into the workplace and ensuring core training areas are covered as soon as possible.
Due to the nature of our industry, we require temporary labour at short notice. Faye and the wider team have always been able to accommodate the fast-paced nature of our business, without sacrificing on quality and customer service.
The Central team have always been open to considering revised and improved processes, offering their own expertise and suggestions where applicable ensuring that our future ways of working are always as efficient and effective as possible.
“His passion and drive spoke volumes”
Jordan Docherty - Employee
I went into the office on Tuesday to see Michael, the following day he had me for an induction, he kept me updated with what was going on on the Thursday and Friday, then the following Monday I was in work. Unbelievable how quickly he helped me get back into work. His passion and drive spoke volumes and you could see the effort he put into helping me get back into work. He is a man who truly enjoys his work and takes pride in his role. I want to thank him for helping me back into work. Strongly recommend this agency and Michael himself.
“They have offered me great work with very good clients”
Dave Appleby - Employee
I’ve been on the books with Central now for a number of years. They have offered me great work with very good clients.
Anytime I am in need of work they have always found me something and looked after me.
In recent years Kevin has been my consultant and has always been there to help with any queries and kept me in constant work for over 2 years’.
“Many of the staff that have started through Central now have contracts directly with us”
Keith Moffat - Production Manager - Elfab
We started using Central in December 2015 as we were dissatisfied with the service we were receiving from our other suppliers. At the beginning, we only used a couple of staff per week, but have gradually increased these numbers due to the high quality of Staff Central have supplied.
The nature of our business dictates that we require additional staff at very short notice to meet customer demand which can be sporadic in nature.
Phil Bennett is the main contact and he reacts very quickly with the Supervisors to provide staff that he has personally inducted from the pool. He is very professional, organised and always has a good pool of candidates available for work at short notice.
A testimonial to this, is that many of the staff that have started through Central now have contracts directly with us.
The Accounts department have also welcomed the quick responses that they receive to any payroll queries and the good working relationship that they have in working together to make the process run smoothly.
The Production, Accounts, and HR Team would have no hesitation in recommending Central for your temporary labour needs.
