But don't take our word for it:

Harris Ethical Ltd

This testimonial is written to commend the excellent services of TCV in helping find the right person for my expanding town and transport planning consultancy.

Both Sophie and Saheed have been extremely supportive and helpful in helping me to expand my team and provided first class support including screening relevant applications, through to opening up their own offices for the whole interview process.

Nothing was too much trouble and their attention to detail made the whole recruitment panel exercise work like clockwork

As a result of their valuable input I was able to evaluate all 6 candidates and have now appointed a really good candidate who will start in a couple of weeks’ time. On top of this there may be scope to bring on a second employee which may also bring great benefits to me by expanding company, but this has been looked in a ‘no pressure’, supportive way, with only the best interests of the potential employee and my own company at heart

First class people and a first class service. If you have recruitment needs, don’t do anything until you have spoken to TCV and they really prove a comprehensive service and work with you to help your company grow.

Develop My

Develop My passed a referral to Sophie of TCV Employment and Training a few weeks ago, this was then passed to Saheed of TCV to contact the customer. The customer was so impressed by the level of service and the quality applicants they emailed me to pass this message forward.

Saheed contacted Clean Shield Professional Limited he arranged for 3 candidates for interview for vacancies in Cheltenham, Kathy was very impressed from the onset of the arrangements made and the calibre of the candidates on arrival. As a result 1 candidate has been employed and as of today she is proving to be a good worker and reliable to the company. Kathy would like to personally thank Saheed for the above as it is not always easy in today's market to find suitable candidates

I will continue to recommend my customers to TCV for their staffing needs and employment needs.

Cakes and Ale, Doorjamb Limited

David Marriott said:

My wife Marya and I are opening a new licensed café in Old Town, Swindon, called “Cakes and Ale”. We were on the lookout for great local staff – waiters, chefs and kitchen staff.>

We posted an advert in the cafe window and quite a few people contacted us including a member of TCV staff so we set up a meeting to find out how TCV could help us.

He explained what TCV does and how they could help us by providing possible candidates for our vacancies. We learned that we could help a number of people get back into work, something very close to our hearts. We want to be a real community hub and make a solid contribution to the local economy.

TCV provided us with the details of a number of people looking for the kind of work we could offer and explained the possible benefits to us of finding jobs for them. Not only that, he offered us a room for our interviews, when we were ready.

We went away to read through the CVs and match them to the vacancies we had. We could see that we had a number of candidates who could become part of our work family. So, we invited 18 people for interview. We took TCV up on the offer of accommodation, which was really helpful as our café was full of builders and building materials at the time. We were very impressed with the quality of the TCV candidates and have offered a number of them – the majority of those we interviewed – a job in the café.

Everyone at TCV was incredibly helpful to us and made it so easy for us to find the people we needed for our business. We also love and appreciate the fact that they will continue to help and support us and their clients as the new venture takes off.

Thanks to everyone at TCV!


Paul Rose, Manager, Argos Carlisle says:

"Since working with TCV Employment and Training Services we have developed four of your reccomended recruits. We would like to thank you for your professionalism, sheer hard work and for giving us the scope to give these guys a chance, who otherwise may not have passed our interview process for various reasons. They are all employed in various roles within the store and have become an integral part of our operation, and the future looks bright.

We are confident that our relationship with TCV Employment and Training Services will continue and we will have no hesitation in using TCV Employment and Training Services for our future recruitment needs.

Ash Manor Cheese Company, Wrexham

Ash Manor Cheese Manager Nigel Wilkin said:

"The level service and commitment of TCV Employment and Training Services has been excellent over the years we have worked in partnership. They are able to provide local interview facilities and accommodate our every need. The calibre of the people put forward to us was excellent. They were all fully prepared for the interview and were positive, enthusiastic with a brilliant work ethic. TCV Employment and Training Services has provided a fantastic aftercare service for ourselves and the new employees. We will definitely use TCV Employment and Training Services for future recruitment and have no hesitation in recommending them to other employers."

Taylor Budd – Contract Cleaning, Co Durham

George Turner (Proprietor)

"The speed of response from TCV Employment and Training Services, the calibre of their staff, and the customers forwarded to us are of exceptional quality." Taylor Budd were approached by TCV Employment and Training Services with the sole purpose of providing work ready people to fill their employment needs. As a growing contract cleaning company, there is a continual demand for staff.

George continues, "The main thing I found was that if my main contact was unable to provide any clients suitable for my needs they liaised with their colleagues in their network of offices across the region and were able to send suitable clients to me. The great big plus point for me is that this is all free of charge. Had I to advertise and interview for these positions I would not have beeen able to keep up with demand and would be spending a fortune recruiting."

TCV Employment and Training Services in Chester-le-Street and Consett have provided several staff to Taylor Budd and are such well-established contacts that they approach Taylor Budd with candidates who may be suitable for future positions, and are building up a bank of prospective employees to cater for the demand.

Star Temps Ltd – Recruitment Agency

Claire Fryer, Business Development Manager

"Essentially we are competitors, it was a very strange concept to work in partnership with TCV Employment and Training Services, an organisation that basically does the same function as us, but for no cost. TCV Employment and Training Services has a bank of customers. They are all prospective employees who are obliged to attend with TCV Employment and Training Services as part of their job centre agreement, putting themselves in a position better than ours."

TCV Employment and Training Services works with STL to fill their positions quickly and effectively. Understanding the customers expectations, work history and limitations means that we can sift through customers depending upon the positions available.

Claire adds, "I found an excellent team, who actually were carrying out the largest part of my job for me, leveraging my time and providing a very high calibre of clients, offering a free service that is supporting me through my business growth."

TCV Employment and Training Services has provided several customers to STL in a range of positions, mainly in the production field. The direct relationship with STL has ensured that if a customer is in a temporary post we are aware of this and will endeavour to source a position elsewhere to maintain continual work, be it in a range of employers. STL are also providing positions for other customers who fall out of work.
