I have known Traci Thorne for 20 years and have worked continually with her on various recruitment campaigns for many years.
We asked Thorne Employment to be one of our preferred suppliers at Barclaycard when we were based at Crawley West Sussex. I had concerns over the calibre of staff that was being put forward by our other preferred suppliers. Thorne Employment was tasked with supplying the calibre of staff required to carry out Customer Service, Sales and Collections roles.
Within the first year Thorne Employment had supplied and placed over 150 people and the attrition dramatically dropped within these departments.
Due to the high attrition of candidates being put forward previously I had tasked Thorne Employment with strict criteria for what we needed. They were proactive in understanding our requirements, by coming into the departments, listening to calls and talking to existing staff to gain a broader understanding of the type of work we did and the sort of skills that were needed to carry out the roles that needed to be filled.
Thorne Employment was and is very good at supplying volume business. At times we had tasked Thorne Employment with supplying up to 20 candidates a month across the business. One particular campaign, they were asked to supply 80 candidates within 6 weeks due to a new client coming on board. Of all the candidates they put forward 98% stayed. However within the first 6 months 100% of candidates were successful. I believe this was down to their thorough interviewing of potential candidates before they put them forward to our assessment centres.
We developed a very good working relationship which was honest and open and this I felt was the key to a good working relationship. They were far more efficient than our other preferred suppliers, their professional approach was excellent and they focused hard to really understand our business requirements.
I would not hesitate to recommend their services and feel for as an independent they certainly give an excellent cost effective service.
