Client Testimonials


SM Thompson Ltd

"The Human Group sent me an innovative mail shot about top candidates that week. I picked up the phone as was so impressed by the difference in their marketing approach compared to other agencies. They worked on a temporary vacancy for me and found the ideal person, the service from start to finish and on-going has been excellent. Nicola has kept me up-dated throughout the whole process and her selection and matching skills re the candidates was second to none. The MD Jo Hand paid me a visit to introduce herself and took the time to find out more about our company in order to cascade this back to the Team to help them find us the best person for the job, their system works! We have now taken on the temporary member of staff permanently and now only go the The Human Group for all requirements, The whole Team are a pleasure to deal with, warm, friendly, professional, enthusiastic and highly competent in all they do. A fantastic agency, would highly recommend them to all North East businesses and beyond."
