Testimonials

We needed some temporary staff due to a high volume of work but also needed a permanent staff member. Unfortunately, applications we were receiving were not meeting the criteria we needed so we turn to Louise and Parker Bridge. It was very refreshing to work with Louise, I could not commend her professionalism enough. From the first meeting, she was hands-on, listened to exactly what we were looking for and explained in full what she could offer. Even after candidates were appointed, Louise kept in regular contact and made the whole process very easy for us. Louise is extremely reliable and when I called through to Parker Bridge reception, I was always treated fantastically. 


Louise was excellent throughout the whole process but for me, it was the small things that made a big difference, such as checking in on the staff and making sure communication was always maintained. Louise has a great ability to not only get us the staff we need but to also build a great relationship with us. – Claire, Customer Service Manager
