“I just wanted to send this email regarding Alex Tomkins and 4Recruitment. You are all just amazing.
Alex, in particular, has been most helpful, supportive and professional throughout my time as a Temp with your agency and even now working from home he’s been helping me with any issues. I have to say that he is the best Recruitment Consultant I have ever worked with, here or in Australia. I have given his name and contact details to friends who also want to register with 4Recruitment.
I know once life goes back to normal he will be busy.
Plus dealing with Samantha Amey was just so easy and delightful as well. I know I had issues with my tax but even that, once made clear, was easily sorted. "Anna - Administrator
"I was contacted by Alex Tomkins , Recruitment Consultant; regarding a placement for a position through Staffs County Council. He was extremely helpful and made me feel important and worthwhile. I was put forward for interview and Alex made sure I had all the details and afterwards checked to see how I got on. At that point I didn't get the role but a couple of weeks later Alex contacted me again to say the Council had come back to him to see if I was still available. Of course I said yes and he arranged all the necessary contract details to sign up.
Between Alex and also Samantha Amey Compliance Lead, the whole process of signing with 4Recruitment Services was painless. Payment of wages has been great, no issues at all.
Alex and Samantha have been great, making me feel extremely well looked after. I can highly recommend, if you're looking for a job.
Oh and just to point out, I live in Stoke on Trent, so just because they are in Ilford doesn't mean they can't help you.
They are definitely worth every one of those 5 Stars !

Darren - Independent Reviewing Officer
"4recruitment services have been amazing from start to finish. I applied for a job with Belfast zoo as a zoo keeper and it was amazing! But to top it off was the communication between the agency and myself. I developed a very good friendship with one of your colleagues Billy Fagg and will continue to do so even now with me leaving the job. He was very helpful and I found it very easy to talk to him about the job and every day life! 4recruitment services are very lucky to have a colleague like him and I wish him all the best for the future!! With the experience I have received from this service, I will certainly be telling everyone about this company! Thank you for everything.. especially Billy!"
Nicola – Agency Worker
"I have found 4Social Work to be different to other agencies - they treat me as an individual. They have worked with me to agree an appropriate strategy for presenting my skills and experience to employers, and they’ve offered encouragement and support when needed. I am now happily working in an ideal placement and I continue to receive emails and phone calls of support from my 4Social Work consultant. When the time comes for me to move to another position I will feel confident that 4Social Work will find me another great position."
Tim – Social Worker
"After 11 years working for local authorities I have finally taken 'the plunge' and become a self-employed social worker. 4Social Work immediately found me a perfect job with good communication, negotiation, information and a feeling of support. Thank you!"
Katie – Social Worker
"On the day I registered with 4Social Work, on the internet, I had a phone call and I believe within two days they had arranged an interview with a local authority where I was successful. I have found this service to be very professional and I would have recommended this company to other professionals."
Nichala – Social Worker
"I cannot thank you enough for all the help you have given me.
It was thanks to your excitement about this role which made me go meet them last week! So pleased you swayed me into going, as they completely changed the offer and the role to suit my skill set. You have been amazing and very supportive to me, I really do appreciate it. You made a normally difficult and lengthy process a breeze! Thank you! I promise to stay in touch and keep you posted on how things map out, so watch this space."
Emma – Head of Care
"I have worked with Taz for approximately five years, the reasons I have stuck with her as my consultant are for the following; I have always found her hard working, open and honest, she has worked hard finding me the positions I want in the location I wanted to work, she has always delivered what she has said she is going to do for me in terms of positions. This is why I will continue working with Taz."
"Luke is a highly personable individual. He is respectful of my requirements and has ensured my preferences are considered in identifying suitable roles for me.
He has also encouraged me to think outside the box in order to develop my experience in roles I may not have otherwise considered. If I have any problems I do not hesitate to contact Luke who is always responsive."
Karen – Learning Disabilities Team
"Luke, my account manager has been supportive and consistent throughout. I guess at times I can be quite difficult and demanding, but Luke has remained professional and made every effort to resolve any issue arising at that time. Luke is available to discuss any matter at any time, and even at weekends. Luke has a very proactive approach to his work, and in seeking work for me. Luke has a very friendly and approachable manner and I am very happy to have him as my account manager."
I am absolutely delighted that I have been offered the role. Once again Luke, I want to thank you for all your hard work, effort and the amount of time you have spent helping me to get my new exciting role. I am really looking forward to working with yourselves at 4Social Work, as you all have a brilliant reputation there.
Anon – Social Worker
I have been with 4Social Work for almost two years. During this time I have found the organisation to be very professional, friendly and helpful. In addition, I have found my personal consultant Jordan Morrissey to be particularly supportive. If there is an issue, which is rare, he will resolve it quickly and is always on the end of the telephone or email. I would have no hesitation in recommending this agency.
