Interim Corporate Strategy Manager

"I first became aware of Kelta HR when I was recruiting interim HR project managers for a programme that I was running within the NHS. The Kelta HR team was knowledgeable and helpful, looking to identify my needs and match candidates to them. They arranged interviews at short notice, were flexible in their approach and always responded promptly to calls and emails.

Recently Kelta HR approached me about an unusual post. They had an NHS client wanting someone immediately with HR awareness, but also a wide management background. They checked with me before putting my CV forward and were able to represent me accurately to the client. This resulted in a short interview and being taken on for an interim contract.

At the start of this contract Kelta HR was able to take me onto the payroll whilst the NHS Trust in question completed its own pre-contract checks. This aided both the client and me. When the client was ready the final payment and P45 were promptly despatched. All the Kelta HR paperwork has been processed with no fuss and completion has been arranged at locations convenient to me.

The Kelta HR staff have been, without exception, friendly and knowledgeable. They call back when they say they will and they all know who I am. On more than one occasion they have informed me of arrangements just ahead of the client. This has allowed me to feel professional and prepared. "

Interim Employee Relations Manager

"I have been most impressed with the service Kelta HR have provided me with, since my registration with them 4 months ago. They have called me when they have promised to call me, and have provided me with prompt feedback following interviews.

The registration process that I went through was thorough and efficient, and since working for them, I have always been paid in a timely manner. They have even gone to the extent of chasing me for timesheets if they do not appear to have received them, to ensure that I have been paid on time.

I would highly recommend them as a professional yet friendly employment agency."

Senior HR Advisor

"I have been impressed with the service that Kelta HR has provided me throughout the candidate process. The Consultant was thorough in the detail and has always come back to me when promised. I have worked through Kelta HR for the past 5 weeks and have always been paid correctly and on time.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Kelta HR to both candidates and companies."

HR Officer

"My contact with you guys was a bit of a (positive) journey and I couldn't do it justice without going into detail:

I first encountered Kelta HR in January 2008. The Consultant was very friendly and quickly grasped my experience and what I was looking for in a new role. We arranged to meet just a couple of days later to complete the registration process, which is good for me as a candidate to meet them face to face and for Kelta HR to really get a feel for me as a person in order to assess my suitability for arising vacancies. The process was very smooth and productive in that I felt understood and valued - not just another candidate!

I met the whole team who were incredibly welcoming and unintimidating (unlike some agencies I've encountered) and was placed in a temp role with a local PCT, whilst seeking a permanent role.

During my temp assignment Kelta HR continued to look after me and kept in regular contact, I was always paid on time. They were particularly good at noticing if I hadn't faxed my timesheet over on a Friday afternoon and giving me a quick ring to remind me, which was very helpful!

They appeared to have formed some very strong professional working relationships with some key local businesses and they were often the sole agent in sourcing quality candidates. Whenever a suitable vacancy came in, Kelta HR would always ring me before putting my CV forward, to tell me about the role and importantly who it was for. I had 2 or 3 interviews for permanent positions which had been arranged by Kelta HR. They always kept me up to date with the arrangements and feedback from employers where appropriate.

If it wasn't for Kelta HR, I wouldn't be sitting here today in my ideal job. Kelta HR are a truly professional, friendly and warm team who treat people as individuals and not just as a number or as a means to hitting their targets. They understand the needs of their clients and candidates alike, and between them as a team they communicate perfectly to secure a solution for all concerned.

It's a pleasure for me to be able to sing the praises of all of the team at Kelta HR as they did so much for me and I'm so pleased for the opportunity to repay them in this way. I wish them every success for the future - they will be my sole agent for when I need to recruit for further HR professionals."

Regional HR Advisor

" Excellent service at all time, regular communication throughout. Prompt & detailed feedback received following interviews every time. Pleasant & friendly at all time from all staff I made contact with. Would definitely recommend and use Kelta HR in the future. I was also very impressed with the gift I received at my place of work on starting from Kelta HR a very nice touch and very much appreciated.

The only agency I have used that was excellent at all of the above, treated me like an individual and with importance.

You got me interviews secured me a fixed term contract which has become permanent.

Im sure improvements can be made but I was extremely impressed with everything."

Group HR Manager

"My registration meeting went extremely well and I felt that Kelta HR really cared about helping me find a new job since being made redundant. Despite having no suitable positions they have kept in touch since and offered me job roles that may be of interest.

I have registered with a few other agencies and some do not respond back when I apply for a job role advertised by them or give me feedback as to why I have not been selected for interview. Only two agencies one being Kelta HR have even bothered to try and stay in contact. "

Personnel Adviser

"I just wanted to say a big thank-you for the flowers that I received this morning. It is a real treat to have such a gorgeous big bunch of flower so thanks very much. Please can you pass my particular thanks onto the Kelta HR team for helping me find the role and all the support provided since - you've been real stars."

Interim HR Advisor

"Thanks so much for all your help and support over the past year. I would definitely recommend Kelta HR to anyone as an excellent agency. "

Resourcing Advisor

"The interaction I have had with Kelta HR has always been friendly and informative, and the recruitment representatives knowledgeable about all remits within HR."

Human Resources Manager

"Since August 2007 I have undertaken a number of temporary contracts for Kelta HR, working as a temporary administrator.

From the first day of dealing with Kelta HR my experience has been very positive. All the staff I have dealt with have been pleasant and helpful, regardless of whether or not they would normally deal with temporary staff. When I first signed on with Kelta HR I was given clear instructions about the documents and information I needed to provide, about the arrangements for getting timesheets to Kelta HR, and about how and when I would be paid. Additionally, I was made aware of the standard Kelta HR expected of their temporary staff, and reminded of the importance of confidentiality when working in HR.

The Kelta HR Consultant I have dealt with has always ensured my skills fit the contracts I have worked on, and that I am clear about where I am going, who my contact is and what I will be doing. One organisation requested me back for a part-time contract. Although it was the organisation and I who negotiated how I would work the hours, my Kelta HR Consultant made sure she knew what had been agreed. For each assignment my Kelta HR Consultant has telephoned me on my first day to check I have found the organisation where I am working, and that I am happy with the assignment. Although I have never had any problems, I have been made to feel that if I had, they would have been dealt with sympathetically and positive solutions would have been found for both myself and the organisation where I was working.

The company Kelta HR use for their payroll is very efficient and I have not had any problems with my pay, or with pay slips.

Any organisation who employed staff through Kelta HR, whether it be on a permanent or temporary basis, would not only benefit from Kelta HRís expertise in the HR area, but also from the professionalism of all their staff and their desire to do a good job. I am happy to recommend them."

"I am happy to write that my dealings with Kelta HR has been fantastic. The consultants have been absolutely brilliant, pro-active and have worked extremely hard when looking for suitable vacancies for me.

I find all the team very friendly and easy to communicate with."

I will most certainly use your company again when looking for future progression in my career path and when my circumstances change."
