What people say about us

  • "I met Ruth nearly 2 years ago whilst on the brink of starting my own business. She has kept in touch and supported our journey with her vast knowledge and experience right up until the point where we required her services to recruit!

    Ruth offers a selection of services to suit every budget, and being a new start up we were very conscious of the costs to recruit. We chose the branded advert package, and against all odds whilst trying to recruit through the festive period, we found the perfect candidate!

    Fantastic person, fantastic service, would definitely recommend to businesses of all sizes. "

    Ryan (Engineering Business Owner), February 2022

  • "I help businesses build credibility, efficiency, systems and performance with ISO14001, ISO9001, good environmental practice and improved legal compliance to enable them to thrive and grow.

    I have recently used Wagstaff in relation to a contract. Ruth is incredibly professional, personable, approachable and helpful. Even when Ruth was not available another member of the Wagstaff team was able to seamlessly follow up on anything  that needed to be done. I would definitely recommend Ruth and Wagstaff."

    Melissa (Quality Consultant), February 2022

  • "Had to finish full time work early due to family illness so decided to try contract work. Wagstaff Recruitment was recommended to me, so I arranged to meet up with them to discuss my options. Spoke with Natalie who I find extremely pleasant, very honest, friendly and helpful. She is very understanding with regard to family/work situations and never puts any pressure on you to take shifts offered. Queries are always answered promptly, no matter what time of night or day and payments are prompt and correct. Have no hesitation in recommending this agency to anyone considering contracting."

    John (Engineer), November 2020

  • "This particular agency Is effortless compared with most, they know what they’re doing and given your requirements will not waste time trying to persuade you into a role you do not want. Contracting for them is also easy with extremely prompt payment. Always easy to contact and genuinely a pleasure to deal with."

    Thomas (Engineer), January 2019

  • "I’ve worked for Ruth for 5 years + now and can’t recommend them enough. All the team are very supportive, reliable and friendly. I would particularly like to thank Natalie for all her hard work in keeping me with regular contract work and look forward to continuing our working relationship in 2021."

    Steve (Engineer), January 2021

  • "Great working with Natalie at Wagstaff. Always on the end of a phone for any support and delivers every time. Great to come across people who go above and beyond to deliver customer requirements. Thanks for all your support Natalie."

    Josh (Engineering Manager) February 2020

  • "Can't recommend Stuart highly enough. Every step of the way in finding my new role, Stuart has been proactive and totally supportive, always returning calls and emails asap. His communication is fantastic and he is always willing to go the extra mile to help and ensure that the candidate, in this case me, was always up to date even if he hadn't heard anything from his client. Would I recommend Stuart? Absolutely!"

    Steve (Lead Engineer), December 2020

  • "Ruth is a leading light in recruitment, coaching, and mentoring. Having worked with Ruth for over 10 years I can say that she has a real passion to help people unlock their potential. Ruth has offered huge value for me over this time, delivering solutions for recruitment, bespoke coaching, consultancy, and career guidance both personally, and for organisations I have worked for. If you need support personally, or for your organisation, I recommend you give Ruth a call."

    Ian, September 2019

  • "Ruth was fantastic. Very professional but at the same time very personal and friendly. I felt she really understood me and my career goals. She was very motivating and encouraging. I'd highly recommend her and Wagstaff. Ruth, thanks again for all you've done to help me find my new position."

    Ross, May 2019

  • "After being made redundant I contacted Ruth and her team as I have worked for them previously. They are such a professional and friendly team. I was offered a few shifts straight away whilst they looked for a long-term solution for me. After attending two interviews, I was offered both positions and had to make a choice... good position to be in! Thanks to Ruth and her team."

    Steve, January 2019

  • "Quite possibly the best contracting agency I have used. Very professional, extremely supportive, and very prompt payments."

    Tony, October 2018

  • "Wagstaff were a pleasure to deal with. They worked very quickly and professionally. Steve was really helpful in setting me up with an interview and giving me information on the company I was applying for. I couldn't recommend them any more, they were by far the best recruitment agency I came across whilst looking for work. 5/5."

    Pat, November 2018
