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.

“Great service every time!”

I have known Paul professionally for a number of years and he is my first port of call if I’m ever out of work. He has placed me on various long term contracts over the years & I get a great service every time.

Since being made permanent I have enjoyed two promotions, thanks again to Paul and the team for setting me on the right path with my career.

“Phil Bennett has been very hands on with finding candidates that suit our needs”

Central Employment Agency has been supplying us with temporary workers for the last 6 months. Phil Bennett has been very hands on with finding candidates that suit our needs. Having worked with other agencies in the past we have found that the candidates that Central put forward have been of a higher calibre.

Phil carries out site visits on a regular basis and is very proactive in making sure that he understands what we do so that he can find candidates that meet our needs. He has ensured that he is actively seeking out candidates in order to ensure that we have a pool of workers that we can draw from when needed. He is also very responsive to dealing with any issues that may arise.

I would not hesitate to recommend Phil and the Central team for your temporary worker needs. I look forward to a continued relationship between Central and the DE Group.

“When they state they will do something it is followed through effectively”

I have worked for Central Employment Agency since July 2014 and have throughout that time always found them to be professional and efficient. I have worked during that time on two assignments, one was a short term assignment for a few months and the other a long term assignment.

I have always received honest and clear information from Central Employment and have confidence in them, when they state they will do something it is followed through effectively, this could be holidays, pay queries or confirming the details of a job opportunity.

I would have no hesitation in recommending them as a potential employer and I hope to continue my association with them as an agency worker.
