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.
“We have a very good working relationship with Central and Phil in particular”
Karen Parkinson - HR Manager - Spicers
Central Employment Agency has been sole supplier to Spicer’s in Newcastle with temporary workers for almost 6 years. Spicer’s have between 15 and 50 agency staff from Central on a regular basis. Working over 2 shifts and occasionally 3 shifts per day.
The account has been very well handed by Phil Bennett. Phil regularly visits the site and keeps in touch and always manages to supply labour at short notice with our ever-changing production plan.
We have a very good working relationship with Central and Phil in particular.
I would not hesitate to recommend Central Employment for all your temporary staffing requirements.
“The info and advice from George before the tough interview process was invaluable for me to prepare properly and I wouldn’t have got the job without it.”
Sarah Preston - Employee
I found CEA to be professional and friendly, George always replied to my emails quickly and addressed any concerns or queries I had, I was always paid on time and any issues with payment were sorted out quickly.
The info and advice from George before the tough interview process was invaluable for me to prepare properly and I wouldn’t have got the job without it.
I enjoyed temping with CEA especially as my first role with them led to a permanent position within a few months!
“Anytime I am in need of work they have always found me something and looked after me”
Ronnie McGreggor - Employee
I’ve been on the books of Central now since November 2013, anytime I am in need of work they have always found me something and looked after me. I’ve even been offered fixed term contracts from the clients Central deal with, and when that came to an end, within a week Central found me another full time job!
If you represent this agency well on site, they will really look after you. Payment is always sorted quickly and efficiently and if I ever need an advance payment, I just contact Andy and its sorted straight away.

“Mark always rises to this challenge and provides excellent service as and when we need it”
Operations Manager - Multi Packaging Solutions
CEA have provided MPS with agency labour for a number of years, as the sole supplier. The company has an ever-expanding pool of temporary labour and employs approx 40-50 of these staff over a 24/6 shift pattern on a weekly basis.
The account has been very well handled by Mark Trett predominantly, who has faced a number of challenges from us to turn labour around very quickly to meet our ever changing production plan! Mark always rises to this challenge and provides excellent service as and when we need it.
Recently, Mark has employed other members of his team to work with our account to provide a broader range of cover. To date this has worked very well, with other team members continuing in the same vein as the service Mark gives.
“Throughout the entire process I found George and the agency as a whole to be professional, efficient and courteous.”
Michael Hodgson - Employee
As I was being made redundant I decided to distribute my CV to various agencies in the North East to begin the process of looking for a new job. I was contacted only a couple of days later by George from Central Employment who had found a great position for me. Throughout the entire process I found George and the agency as a whole to be professional, efficient and courteous.
During the process George explained the role in detail to me and advised on what to expect for the interview, three days later I had secured a position working at a blue chip company thanks to Central Employment.
I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and would highly recommend anyone looking for a position in the North East to register with them.
“As we operate 24/7, Andy always makes himself available out of office hours and at weekends”
Louise Walby - HR Advisor
We started using Central in December 2014 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 the numbers and are now using thirty plus staff on a regular basis.
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. Andy Scott is the main contact and he reacts very quickly with the Supervisors to provide staff that he has personally inducted from the pool, which he holds at very short notice.
As we operate 24/7, Andy always makes himself available out of office hours and at weekends to answer queries and meet our Business requirements. The Supervisors have greatly welcomed this service and it makes their job much easier knowing they have the full support of Andy.
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.
