"Just an email to say thank you for all the support and advice you have given me the past weeks. I hadn't previously used an agency in obtaining a job role and in all honesty, was dubious of using one. However, you have completely changed my opinion and I would have no hesitation in recommending you and the service you provide. The teamwork displayed by you and your team has been excellent, the service was timely and responsive. I felt all the support you gave me got me through that interview process and I have you and the team to thank for the success of it!"

"I would thank the Meridian Health team for all of their hard work and effort in helping me find a new job. Throughout the entire application process, the Meridian team put all their effort into ensuring my application was successful. Despite how difficult some of my previous employers where to get a hold of for reference and date checks, they persevered through it until they got a hold of the information they needed. In addition to this any time there was an update in my application status, Meridian ensured I was kept in the loop by emailing me any and all updates with my application. Thanks to the exceptional effort put in by Meridian Health, I am now starting my induction training. I'm so excited to be starting such a rewarding, yet challenging role. If you're looking for work or looking for a career change, I would highly recommend taking the time to contact Meridian Health. As I have no doubt that they will help and support you, in finding and securing your new job."

"Mark was a valuable asset in assisting me to find a new position away from retail. Being typecast before I always found it challenging to get my CV noticed. Thankfully Mark work worked his magic and landed me the perfect 'foot in the door position'! I have now been a sales administrator/office manager for nearly a year now and have gained so much experience within that position. Throughout the whole experience I felt like I was supported and encouraged."

"Overall my experience in finding a job with Meridian was great! I know I already had an idea of the position I wanted when I came to your office, but you sorted out an interview straight away and were really helpful. The contact from you throughout the interview process was fab! Calls before and after the interview made the process feel really personal, so thank you! Even after I'd started the position, you still kept in touch, which I found really thoughtful. Hopefully I won't need Meridian any time soon, however definitely wouldn't hesitate to use you again!"

"I wanted to say thank you for all your help over the last couple of months. From my initial application you have provided a top class service but above all, it’s been a personal service. You took a great amount of time to get to know me, understand my strengths and the direction I wanted my career to go. It soon became apparent that you have a similar relationship with your clients as you were able to talk about their business, their ethos and had a good knowledge about the roles being offered. This was invaluable in preparing for the interviews you secured for me and I felt confident going to the interviews that I was already a good match for the role and the business. Even knowing you had been to the site and could advise where to park and what door to aim for was great as Google maps can only go so far! Thank you again for understanding that a career isn’t always about promotion, but sometimes a sideways step is needed to establish the right direction in the right surroundings and I appreciate how this was communicated to potential employers. I’m really pleased with the role you helped secure for me and I’m excited about the potential for me to develop in what already feels like a comfortable business environment. My new role was advertised with multiple agencies and, despite the same CV and covering letter being sent, you were the only agency who had the necessary knowledge and understanding of both your clients and candidates to put me forward. I have taken great pleasure in replying to the rejection emails from the other agencies saying “the depth & quality” of the other candidates meant I had “been unsuccessful on this occasion!"

"I have been looking to find a suitable position for a few months that met my requirement of the right pay as well as utilising my skills. Debbie was able to place me in a full time job that matched my unique personal and professional requirements. She was extremely supportive in preparation for interview, following up and helping to negotiate terms that were suitable for both me and my employer. Her friendly, personal approach during this process was of great benefit to me and I am very grateful for all the positive guidance she gave me."

He did a fab job of boosting my confidence in my abilities before interview. I received a very personable service that was tailored to my personal skills and style. I felt well looked after and also felt he had the best interest of the client in mind as he was quite constructively critical with me in order to make sure I was the right candidate for the job."

He has really gone the extra mile to ensure that I was fully prepared for the interview and has chased up some job related queries on my behalf. I’m very grateful for all this support and would definitely recommend Meridian's services to anyone looking for their dream job! "Meridian got in touch with me this month with a perfect job in a perfect location. My recruitment consultant, Ged, has been spectacular, communication has been brilliant and I felt thoroughly prepared for my interview and it went very well indeed. I'm so excited to be joining a company that seems so well matched to my skills and ambitions. It was particularly brilliant to have salary negotiations done on my behalf and I'm extremely happy with the result! I'm very grateful to Meridian and would happily recommend them to anyone."

Liverpool Health Perms

"This is my first experience of applying for a post through a recruitment company and have found it to be a very good one. I received a very prompt email response to my enquiry followed up by a phone call to discuss my CV. Ged and I had a very thorough discussion about what I was looking for and what would be the ‘right’ post for me as an individual. From start to finish the relationship has been very professional, realistic, open and honest with excellent communication. In particular I felt very well prepared by Ged for the interview process which was very different to my past experiences. The whole process has been smooth and efficient, resulting in securing a great role for myself. I have some experience of working in the recruitment industry and would be very happy to highly recommend Meridian to both candidates and clients alike."

I was contacted by Meridian in March 2015 and offered an interview at SSST NHS FT for a procurement assistant. I have been working In this post for the 18 months. Meridian has matched my skills and experience perfectly as I am enjoying my job and obtained a permanent place at SSST. Meridian is providing a services and support for its employees on the highest level, I never had any payment or holidays queries, all documents and statements I have asked for were provided as a matter of hours. As a matter of fact I have interacted with Meridian on a daily basis as my post at SSSfT includes temporary staff management and employment agencies queries and I must say Meridian services are excellent. I will be recommending Meridian to job seeker and to employers. Laura and Clare once again thank you for everything, it was a pleasure.

I have been working for Meridian for approximately 3 months now. Meridian is a great agency to work with... They are fast, professional and efficient, also shifts are allocated in a convenient manner. The time sheets are easy to compete and therefore I have received prompt payment for my work. All the staff are very approachable and helpful. Michelle Taylor has been a fantastic support to me. Michelle, helped me through the registration process, I couldn't believe how quickly it took. I also had to report a concern, regarding a patient falling during one of my shifts, I felt reassured and supported from the Meridian team. I feel confident when representing Meridian that I have their full support.

Exeter

I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you very much for all your help recently, especially with trying to get me in with Landmark. I really appreciate all your hard work and my apologies if I sounded a bit deflated on the phone yesterday. Based on experiences with other recruitment agencies during the last couple of months (mentioning no names!) I can definitely say that the service you provide and your dedication is above and beyond what I have experienced elsewhere and I thank you for that.

Exeter

candidate

Being new to Exeter it was very challenging to find a permanent job. I had just left a very bad workplace and I was lucky enough to have been contacted by the consultants from Meridian. I was greeted by professional, friendly staff who treated me like a person and listened, showing that my needs were important to them. Very quickly a job was matched with my skills and experience, and in walking distance so an interview was set up. I felt that the consultants knew that my confidence was a bit low and I was asked to come in for a talk before my interview. This talk was so kind and caring and gave me the confidence to face an interview. I got the job. I felt the job matched what I was capable of and more. As they mentioned, they had matched me to a lovely working team too. I have now been taken on permanently and cannot thank Meridian enough. Meridian take the time to get to know you. They are easy to communicate with and are very responsive. I cannot thank Karen and Mags enough for their outstanding help in finding me a job that I am happy doing and working with a great team. I have recommended Meridian to everyone I know and if I needed their help again I would not hesitate in visiting them again.

Louise is a the best recruiter I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She is absolutely wonderful. She is honest, professional, extremely hard working, and will go that extra mile to make sure that her client is happy, and making the right decisions. I feel blessed to have met Louise, and would highly recommend her to all my friends and family if ever they are looking for a job. She really is the best.

I came across Meridian purely by chance and what a pleasant surprise! An employment agency that did what it said on the tin... Incredibly professional, honest and open, with a human side. It was a pleasure to be treated as an individual and from the first point of contact Shirley did everything she could to ensure I was listened to and matched with potential suitable employers. To top off my experience I was successful in gaining the first position that I applied for, partly I feel as a result if the careful matching that Meridian/Shirley carried out. Would I recommend Meridian? Yes most definately. Would I use them again? Yes without hesitation.

I am two weeks into my new role and absolutely love this job! I wanted to express my appreciation for all of Imogen’s help. My dream job wouldn’t of been possible without her. Unlike most recruitment agencies, I was really impressed with Imogen’s personal but professional approach and her attention to detail when discussing the role in question. She consistently kept on top of things and kept me informed throughout the whole interview process. Helping and advising me for the first and second interview, always making sure that I was ready. I will continue to promote and recommend Imogen at Meridian Business Support in the future, as I believe she is one Resource Manager amongst a sea of them that truly stands out from the rest!

I have worked for the same company in a senior management position for many years so was totally unprepared for the job market when I re entered it looking for a change in direction. I had no idea where to start in my search and applied for a job advertised with Meridian Business support. From my first conversation with Shirley at Meridian Business Support, I felt confident that she was interested in finding me a career position that would suit me as a person as well as my work skills and ability. She supported me throughout the recruitment process, from helping me improve my CV to ringing me after my first day and after my first week in my new job to see how it was going. Shirley instinctively knew that I was the right person for the role that she put me forward for as she understood her clients needs. I was successful at my first interview and I truly feel that this played a huge part in my success. I am now in my new role, which is a totally new career path for me and I am really enjoying the new challenges and people that I am working with. The personal touch and attention to detail that Shirley and Louise at Meridian Business Support adopt towards recruitment made what I thought would be an ordeal, a positive and supportive experience. I would thoroughly recommend them to any business.

I am happy to say I have accepted a role as Operation Director for a Medical supply company looking after Logistics, supply chain and Customer Service. I would like to say of all the agencies and consultancies I dealt with, you and your colleague were the most human, courteous and charming which made your professionalism all the more outstanding. Sadly not everyone I dealt with had that touch. May I take this opportunity to thank you for your kindness and consideration in looking after me and thank you for all your efforts. Truly they were much appreciated and never taken for granted.

From start to finish Rikin and Meridian were fantastic. Whether it was following up on the many questions I had asked or keeping me updated on the progress/status of my potential new role. It's safe to say that thanks to Meridian and Rikin, I have found my perfect role . Overall I'd say absolutely over the moon with them! And couldn't have asked for a better person to help me through than Rikin.

Doncaster Office & Professional

Just to say a very special thank you for getting me the job I wanted, the service I received from you was one in a million, it’s very rare when you deal with any agency that they stay in touch and take time out of their own spare time to call and give you advice and put you first. I will definitely recommend anyone who is looking for a job in the future to get in touch with you and if there is anyone at Meridian I could speak with to get you the praise you deserve then I'll be glad to do it. I still can’t believe how good the job is that you found me I'm still over the moon, so thanks again Emma and hopefully I will get the chance to deal with you again one day.

I would like to start with a thank you. For you and all of your team. You have been more than helpful in regards of my personal needs and circumstances. I have never experienced treatment like it before. Within a week you had me a job in a place I'd like to spend a lot of time with. I cannot thank Meridian enough. I hope I don't have to deal with being part time again but if I do Meridian will be my first option. Thanks again for the services time and commitment.

Emma has been a total pleasure to deal with. She really cares about what she does. I have never in my career seen someone so dedicated to their work. She was often working long hours around my schedule in order to help me find the right role. Emma is very professional from start to finish. She takes the time to understand the client and candidate ensuring a positive match. She will help you and guide you through the whole recruitment process and answer any questions you may have. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a recruiter for her work. She is a credit to her industry and her company.

This is just a few words to say how happy I have been with the service I have received whilst with Meridian Business Support with yourself as my consultant. Since joining in early October I have been impressed with the level of professionalism and courtesy shown to me. All the shifts I have been given have included detailed instructions and directions and plenty of notice given, which is not always the case with agency work. I would have no hesitation in working for or recommending yourself or Meridian to others.

Sittingbourne Office & Professional

I would like to personally thank you for the help you have done with finding me a permanent job. Without you I probably would still be unemployed, sitting at home, pulling my hair out. Also whilst going to look for work at the same time and always walking away with the same answer all the time. You are the only person I know who actually put their faith and trust in me without actually knowing me personally. You risked putting me in there so they could see me for who I really am rather than reading off of paper. Words really cannot explain how thankful I am for helping me and helping me realise I can do it and I can succeed. Since I started this position things have really started to turn around for me and my life just gets better and better everyday due to the fantastic benefits of having a permanent job. I can’t be more thankful to anybody but you. Thank you so, so, so, so much Shirley, you’ve made me the happiest boy ever. P.S.. That drinks offer still stands for when I get paid. Many thanks once again

Thank you for your help in trying to find me a position. Throughout my long search for employment (apart from the temping jobs) Meridian was the only agency that got me any interviews. I felt very disillusioned with my experience with other agencies and am quite tempted to write to them letting them know what I think but I know they wouldn't read it! I would have no hesitation contacting you if I ever find myself looking for work again.

I have found you to be professional, efficient and helpful in dealings with any queries/problems I have had. I get the feeling you put yourself into the shoes of the people you are dealing with and address issues as if they were your own. Good customer service is not as common a skill as people might think. I’m happy to report that my experience of Meridian and especially my dealing with you have been a positive one. My compliments on a job well done, and if you ever need a recommendation (verbal or written) please don’t hesitate to ask.

I have dealt with many recruitment agencies lately, but yours has by far been the most efficient, helpful and competent consultant that I have dealt with.

I wanted to thank you for putting me forward for the recent job role.

Meridian Business Support has partnered T Clarke Leeds since 2011, supplying Mechanical & Electrical staff along with White Collar Professionals. We receive a good service from Meridian, with the supply of quality resource and candidates with regular feedback given to our enquiries. Issues being dealt with in a timely manner and their consultants have a good understanding of the industry. Whilst we have utilised the Meridian branch network through out the UK, we still operate via one point of contact through Ben Spence, this ensures the level of service expected is maintained. I have no hesitation in recommending Meridian Business Support to clients wishing to work with a reliable labour provider.

Saffron Saunders

Meridian has been a life line of support to Sussex Innovation over the past year. We had irregular and frequent needs and were able to rely on very able flexible staff coming through at very short notice. The management are engaged and on the ball and really got to know our needs during a tough period. The whole process ended with us recruiting a fantastic temp on a permanent basis. We would recommend Meridian in Croydon to others.

We have worked with Meridian’s Newcastle under Lyme branch for four years and have always found them to be very knowledgeable about both our market and our business.

Meridian consistently keep in contact to make sure everything is going well and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering working with them

We use Meridian primarily for temporary and additional staffing of our delivery drivers. Meridian can provide efficient and reliable staff, at short notice to fulfil this requirement. This is an area of extreme importance to us as the drivers come into direct contact with our customers and can provide the ‘lasting impression’ at the end of our sales process. I am pleased to say that Meridian and its drivers have not let us down yet and we will continue to use them

Charlotte Edwards, Project Manager

With Meridian you get the benefits of working for a big company, like great opportunities for progression and training but Meridian retains a real “family feel”. You’re definitely not a number and everyone is so friendly. Management is really approachable and your ideas, big or small, can drive genuine change within the business.

Clariss Skelton, Senior RPO Resourcer

Jayne Hambling, Head of Quality and Risk Management

our-people

Although Meridian has a geographical spread UK wide, it has managed to retain all of the benefits of working for a small independent; Meridian has the infrastructure and support of a significant player in the market. Meridian encourages diversity, independence and out of the box thinking – and supports talent where it emerges. You have a voice despite the size and you always know what is going on. You are part of the strategy and you know why your role is a vital part of the operation.

Rob Latimer, Branch Manager

There is a fantastic camaraderie within Meridian and genuine support across the business. The management understands our industry and focuses on results, not on unachievable and worthless KPIs.

Sarah Lane, Permanent Vacancies Manager

our-people

The best thing about working for Meridian is their flexibility! Meridian really seem to value experience and industry knowledge and if you quickly prove to them that you have the ability, gravitas, consultative approach and drive to deliver, then they will support you fully whilst leaving you to run your own ‘business’.

Shirley Willis, Business Manager

our-people

I have never worked for such a transparent and inspirational leader Derek Skelton. Since joining the business he has led all business units to higher levels of success. At Meridian, people matter and the business listens. There is a natural passion to find jobs for people and people for jobs within our business. A family feel organisation with professional service delivery.

Tony Burton, Operations Manager, M&E

our-people

I started my career with Meridian as a consultant back in 2011 working for one of the flagship branches with the organisation. After 12 months I progressed to a Senior Consultant after proving to be one of the strongest billers in the company. The opportunity to manage the branch came around and I grasped it with both hands. Within three years I have built the branch profits year-on-year whilst taking on new geographical areas and building new teams to support me, but the greatest achievement has to be winning branch of the year at the annual conference and awards dinner. Meridian offers the opportunity for its employees to have clear career progression from the outset with excellent back office support.

Stephen Dearden

client

Meridian has supplied all disciplines of M&E staff to us for 5 years. I find them to be very knowledgeable of our business and our requirements.

Rosalyn Wimpenny

I have worked with Meridian for around five years, they provide me with a variety of M&E positions, including Senior Operations appointments, Project Engineers, electricians, support staff, administration, full time, part time, permanent and temporary. The service they offer is excellent, they listen to my requirements and offer ideas and solutions to my problems, there is always regular contact and I find them to be reliable and honest. I would highly recommend Joe Firth, he is an asset to your company and a valuable asset and advocate for Meridian. He keeps in touch with our company and is always there to support our business as we grow. He takes the time to understand the culture of the company and has gone the extra mile in providing resources to aid our business development. Joe is professional and knowledgeable in his field which has now moved Meridian up to fist point of call on our preferred supplier list.
