We would like to share some candidate and client testimonials with you, to show our great service works.

Cleveland Bridge UK Limited took a strategic business decision three years ago to outsource our shopfloor recruitment needs for the business going forward.

We have a policy of exploring all local options as well as national suppliers and found the best match to meet our business needs, was Tribe Recruitment. Over the past three years we have developed a first class working relationship fully utilizing the recruitment skills and personnel management of Tribe.

We have always found the Tribe management team to be of the highest calibre and totally professional it is my belief that this is a result of a proactive owner and senior management who operate at all levels of the business giving support to their staff which has the result of delivering a first class service meeting the needs of their end user customers.

Andrew Smedley – Production and Quality Assurance Manager – Cleveland Bridge UK Ltd

Having worked with Tribe Recruitment at both my previous & current homes for the past 2 years, they are always the first people I call when I have nursing shifts to cover.

Denise & her team are always quick to assist, will always be upfront & honest if they are having trouble finding cover but they have quite often provided cover with less than 24 hours’ notice – which for nurses is a miracle.

They understand the need for continuity in a care home so always try to supply the same pool of nurses if cover is likely to be required for a few weeks & as for their nurses, they have always been both knowledgeable & professional, providing a high standard of care.

Tribe recruitment have always been reliable and able to provide us with long term cover for both nursing staff and care staff whilst we have been recruiting. They have provided quality staff and have offered consistency to our service by providing us with the same staff members where possible. 99% of the time Tribe have also been able to provide us with the emergency cover that comes with last minute sickness.

After worrying about working for an agency I decided to contact Tribe Recruitment, this was the first agency I contacted and it was great because they really took the time to get to know me and put me forward for a job that suited my skills and personality.

I have been in my current position for almost a year and a half now and this has worked out really well as I am now being taken on as a permanent member of staff, thanks to Tribe Recruitment finding me this position.

Tribe Recruitment are just a phone call away should I have any concerns and they also regularly call me just to catch up and check on how I am getting on, any queries I have had have been dealt with efficiently and quickly.

All staff are friendly and approachable.

Judith Currar, Administration Assistant, Review Unit, Parkside, Melrose Ave, Billingham TS23 2JH

I can honestly say I have been really impressed with the service that Denise and the company have delivered. I was somewhat apprehensive as I have been solely disappointed with various other agencies in the past.

However it just took one phone call to Denise and she delivered exactly what I had requested from her, in no time at all. I found this to be very impressive as I needed Denise to be able to find staff to come over to Cumbria. The staff are fully DBS checked and had undertaken extensive training and evidence was provided.

On enquiring about the training programme Denise was able to send me the model of training all their staffs undertake. Again I was very happy as all training is compliant with CQC and skilled staff up to work in the care industry.

I also found that the staff were very professional, reliable and very polite with all the core values that you need support staff to have.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Denise/the company to any other care provider and from now Denise will always be my first port of call.

Lorraine Hetherington, Deputy Director & CQC Registered Manager North West, Neuro Partners Ltd

I have known Denise for past 10 years approximately professionally and she has provided agency staff for most of that time. Our service provides care for nursing and mental health for the elderly. The staff provided by Denise have had the appropriate skills and knowledge to provide good standards of care to our vulnerable clients. A personal service has always been provided by matching staff to the needs of the home. Staff are punctual, reliable and professional in their approach to their role . I have always been able to contact Denise for cover as needed, and the service provided has been one of quality. If you require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Deborah - Nurse Manager

CareMatters is a absolutely fantastic company to work for, I have currently worked for CareMatters since December and I have enjoyed every single day so far and I am pretty sure I will have loads more days I enjoy. Why do I think CareMatters is a Good company to work for? We all get in house training to a very high standard so people know we are going to deliver care not just care but a high level of care. Management and all the staff are brilliant we all help each other out and if we have any questions about anything we all get an answer there and then. I have nothing to fault with this company.

Sam Webster – Staff member

Provided a great service and extremely friendly staff. Excellent expanding business, providing quality individualised care, highly motivated staff and management team. Recommend as an employer and a service provider. Like all similar companies, Care Matters are challenged by staffing levels in a very competitive environment, but deal with those challenges in an extremely effective way and have never let us down. My 95 year old Mum has been cared for by them for about a year now, and without doubt we would not have been able to look after her in her own home without them. The earlier comment that somebody made about 6 months ago about Care Matters having quality carers but poorly organised management certainly no longer applies, as the organisation has now risen to match the caring. Mum is very sharp and does not suffer fools, and so the fact that she is so full of praise for the Care Matters service speaks volumes. Many thanks for adding quality and dignity to her long and highly active life.

I commenced working with Durham County Council through Tribe Recruitment in July 2015. Since that time the assistance, support and help from ALL of the Staff has been second to none, always going the extra mile to deliver. Special praise must go to Luke and Leandra who have been at the end of every e mail/phone call which I can only assume will happen on a daily basis.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Tribe.
