Morning Leigh,

Just wanted to send you a short testimonial text, about the service that I have received from Skills Direct since joining your driving team the early part of last month.

The service and help you have given me I’ve got to say has been exemplary. I’m impressed with how quickly you got me into work and especially how thorough your staff were, main employee being Trudi Williams was to help me and get things sorted out and up and running for me.

I hope this be the start of a long running relationship between us!

M Dorsett, Driver

We have used several local agencies but have found that Amanda at Skills Direct only puts forward candidates that are suitable for our needs. We currently have 2 agency staff that we hope to make permanent very shortly. Amanda has the skills to tailor applicants who will fit in, are productive and most of all want to work. Having reliable staff is a huge benefit.
Nicola T, Yeovil Client

Lovely Lewis,
Just to let you know that I got the temp job, it’s for 4-5 weeks with the possibility of going perm so I’ll see how it goes & will keep you posted…may not have seen the back of me yet! 🙂
Big thanks for being so fab during what’s been a pretty tumultuous time for me, nothing nicer than having a consultant who you can have a laugh with, so very genuinely appreciated.
Take care of yourself, eat copiuos amounts of cake & hope to speak again sometime in the future!
All the best,

This is a tribute to skills direct.
Who provide good quality service near perfect.
Their nurses always turn up with a smile.
Some of them have to drive many a mile.

They have to deal with the inability and disability.
With patience sympathy and professional ability.
The care can be nursing home, domiciliary or residential.
But whichever it is, — good quality skills care — is essential.
Jack Baxendale, Domiciliary

I am so glad we found your company. With very short notice you managed to provide a fantastic operative with great working attitude to help us with our show exhibition. We will definitely use your service in the future.
Ron Hakl, Cowley Timber

I have been working for Skills Direct since April 2018 and they are the best! When I first met Bex and Elle at the Christchurch office, I was greeted with the warmest of smiles and welcomed humbly, I immediately felt at home and wanted to work for these ladies. There was a lot of transparency, openness and a genuine feeling that they cared about the community that they lived in. Also, that every individual deserved to live as normal a life as possible, where possible in their own homes. When Elle took me to meet their clients, she showed me how to care for each individual. She explained to me all I needed to know about each individual to keep them calm and comfortable at all times, I was not left alone until I felt ready. Elle and Bex are always available at the end of a phone, if I experience any issues and this is very reassuring. I have already recommended Skills Direct to lots of people and look forward to many years of working with them.
Beckee White, Domiciliary Carer

I started working for Skills Direct in April 2018 and so far my experience has been amazing! I feel that the quality and accuracy of the care provided is excellent. I have been working in the care sector for over 8 years and experienced many different ways of working. I feel that the flexibility, teamwork and communication that Skills Direct offer is strong. Bex and Elle are always free to listen and I can talk to them regarding any issues. During a recent domiciliary call I needed to unfortunately call the emergency services, Elle was straight there to help and in over 8 years I have never experienced such support from a manager and it was much appreciated. Since starting in April 2018, I have undertaken shadow training, with review and support as a follow up. Skills Direct have always provided me with the correct equipment to deliver my care to the clients I look after, they also plan my runs correctly, giving me adequate time between calls. I feel very happy to be delivering care on behalf of Skills Direct and look forward to working for them for a long time!
Rachael Marshall, Domiciliary Carer

I hope that you and the team are well? When my husband Dave was speaking to Mum at the weekend, she sounded much chirpier. She really appreciated the flowers that April, our carer picked for her from the garden and placed next to my late Father-In-Laws ashes. This was very kind and thoughtful, thank you.
Kind regards Linda

I’ve been using staff from Skills Direct for the past couple of years & have always found them to be hard working & enthusiastic. I’ve even gone on to employ a couple of them full time. Whenever I’ve needed extra staff, Michelle & Elwira at the Shepton office, have always made sure it’s been covered. I would have no hesitation in recommending Skills Direct.”
Tony Ball, Grading Manager at Barbers, Ditcheat

The service from Skills Direct in Shepton Mallet is second to none. Historically other agencies sent me CV’s and candidates for roles that they were not necessarily suited to, but Skills Direct show an interest in understanding the position I’m looking to fill, sort through the applicants and only send the candidates they feel are fitted to the role, saving me valuable time and effort. Skills Direct listen to my needs and communicate clearly throughout the recruitment process, so if you are looking for an effective, efficient and professional recruitment agency I would not hesitate to recommend Skills Direct, they are now my first and only choice of service provider.
Jason Brown, UK Sales Manager, Delacamp UK Ltd

Each time that myself or the night managers have spoken to Sacha at Skills Direct, she has always been very helpful, polite and professional. Her understanding of our staffing needs has been excellent. The 24hour service that is supplied has been invaluable and the response time impressive. I would have no issue in recommending Skills Direct as a service provider.
