Testimonials

care

During the last few weeks, Vetro has been invaluable in assisting me with recruitment in Shropshire. She is professional, courteous, and enthusiastic. Together we set up recruitment packs that have assisted Lisa to encourage candidates to apply for specific homes within the region. We have a strong professional relationship, which continues to develop the longer we work together.

"Vetro has shown a real interest in what we do as a business and worked with us to understand what type of person would be a good fit for our company.  They understand the complexities of our organisation and find the time to listen and deliver solutions according to our needs.  They are people-centric in their approach that goes beyond matching skills and experience to do a job.  I am confident when interviewing a potential candidate they have been vetted in a manner that would fit our company and culture.  Vetro provides solutions for both permanent and temporary cover and are competitively priced in the market.  I have in the past used other agencies but my experience of them has paled into insignificance compared with Vetro who go the extra mile to provide the right person at the right time.  Vetro continues to evolve as we do, I would not go anywhere else for my recruitment needs."

Vetro Recruitment has been working with us for a number of years as a supplier of temporary staff to a number of our services around the country. They have helped provision our services with skilled, honest and reliable staff during this time in some of our most challenging settings. In the small number of instances where issues have arisen, Vetro has always offered diligent support functions to resolve these issues as quickly as possible involving key stakeholders at all levels to ensure this end. Alun and his team are proactive in their approach, adhere to our policies and guidelines and are always upfront and honest in all areas, I would have no issue with recommending them to other services as I am confident that they will be an asset.

Group Agency Manager -

education

The school is now in its 3rd year with Vetro Recruitment. My main point of contact with Vetro is Mr Ross Harries. Ross provides excellent service to the school and is always available to be contacted. This could be before the start of the school day, at the end of the working day, during the weekend and on occasions over the school holiday period. That, to me, shows commitment to the role. The quality of staff provided are always of the highest calibre with knowledge of the sector that we work in. Ross, will not send staff to school, who have no desire to work within the SEN sector. Ross is also visual at the school and regularly visits. This allows him to see the skill set of the staff we need at the school. On the odd occasion that there have been issues with Vetro staff, Ross has dealt with them professionally and quickly, ensuring that problems do not affect the service provided by Vetro. To summarise, Mr Ross Harries provides an excellent service to the school and certainly eases my workload.

Deputy Head -

We are very happy with Vetro and the service we have received.  From the start, Ross was very helpful and informative about the company and the service they offered.  When the time came to ask for supply staff in our nursery Ross certainly delivered. We received excellent staff who were able to cover at short notice and we even had continuity of receiving the same people. ​The ease of ringing or texting from home has made our lives much easier and we are confident with the service provided.  I am more than happy to recommend Vetro to any other nurseries looking for quality supply staff.

I have found Abi a great consultant to work with.  As schools with last-minute sickness issues, it can be a stressful job for Abi but she always answers the phone with a bright demeanour and is always happy to help.  Always professional and tries her best to find what we need.

As a regional manager responsible for nine registered children's homes, I was having difficulty with recruitment in the region. Alex has been an exceptional asset with assisting me to recruit passionate and experienced staff. I am now in a position where there are no staff vacancies within the region - the first time in many years! Thank Alex for all your hard work.

Vetro- Emma and Kerry have been a massive help and support with helping us find candidates for our current vacancies. They are always very friendly, approachable, and I feel speak passionately to possible candidates about the wonderful place that I work. I know I can trust them to find the right people for our jobs.​I would defiantly recommend them to other companies- and we are happy to continue using them to help us.

Ash has been providing staff for us for some time. Vetro is the second agency we used and we have been more than satisfied with the service Ash has provided us resulting in Vetro being are the main port of call to cover our needs. Ashley's friendly and professional work ethic means we have built up a solid relationship where we can rely on Ashley to fill our requirements without hassle to ourselves. We have been approached by several agencies since beginning working with Vetro and I can safely say that the reason I continue to use yourselves is due to the quality of service Ashley provides us as he makes us feel like his primary objective whenever we contact him.

Hi CerysYou will probably already guess that my feedback will always be positive comments! I thoroughly enjoy working alongside you and the candidates that we receive through are mostly fantastic! Even through all the conversations at our group interview days with the candidates, they all sing your praises very well! They are always very complimentary about how easy you are to talk to and answer any questions they may have. You inform them very well of all the ins and outs of our organisation so that when they arrive for the recruitment day we are only just talking about it in more depth. You are always working so hard and are always willing to help me where you can (despite me being a pain sometimes). I am very grateful for all the support you give me! I look forward to continuing to work alongside you!

Hi Alun, I’d just like to share some candidate feedback received this morning about Lauren which was again really positive. Our candidate said how very informative, helpful and friendly she found Lauren and it was a really good experience she had received in her dealings with Vetro. This is actually not the first time I have heard this from our candidates in terms of positive feedback about Lauren so thought it worthy of sharing. Naturally we are also very delighted with the support and service Lauren provides us!

Vetro offered us a very professional and personal recruitment service. They took the time to understand our needs and looked for people who would meet this. All staff were very welcoming, and we were provided with a lovely office space to use for an open day.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your dedicated hard work in finding us some awesome candidates to join us. I can assure you that the organisation will appreciate your help too as it will be felt by the children and young people who will be supported by our newly appointed colleagues. Thank you so much again for all your support and I can’t wait to do another recruitment day but you’ve set the bench mark pretty high now (no pressure at all!) :-)

Hi Alun, I have just been chatting with Steph and she was saying how professional, thorough and helpful you were, and how good you were at keeping us updated on progress.We are confident that the candidate is getting an equally professional perception of Vetro which obviously reflects on their understanding of our services. So, I just wanted to say a big *THANK YOU* for being such a great recruitment partner!  Best wishes, Ali

Alastair was my point of contact from start to finish when I asked him to help me to recruit a suitable Care manager for my new start up agency. He was always  very  professional; knowledgeable and understood the importance of finding that right person to fulfil this responsible position.​I am very pleased with the outcome and have appointed a great member of staff. I promise you: you will not be disappointed with the service you will receive if you appoint Vetro for your recruitment needs.

I have recently worked with Kerry from Vetro in recruiting for a managerial position, Kerry really got to grips with the type of candidate we were looking for and provided a good calibre of candidates, to which we were able to appoint for the position.Kerry gave great customer service throughout the process and I would certainly recommend her to others as being a proactive and reliable recruiter.

Learning Disabilities Service Manager -

We have worked with Vetro for the last six months to help us fill vacancies in a geographical area which has been difficult to recruit for in the past. Other more traditional methods failed to produce the calibre of candidates we required. Since working with Vetro the number of successful candidates has significantly increased.Alun and Josie have worked very closely with us to familiarise themselves with our requirements and to fully understand the roles, resulting in a better match of candidates. By visiting our residential homes Josie and Alun saw, first-hand, the skills required to support the individuals who live there. Vetro also helped us to run our first ever assessment day by finding us good quality candidates and offering advice on the structure of the day. The day was successful and job offers were made.

Recruitment Manager -

We have recently engaged the services of Vetro due to growth plans within the organisation. Following an initial conversation with Alun and a subsequent meeting with both Alun and Alastair, we signed up for Vetro to support us with the recruitment of both our Residential Workers and Supervising Social Workers.  I have found both Alun and Alastair to have a refreshing professional approaching whilst demonstrating innovative approaches to recruitment. They are clearly incredibly knowledgeable about the social care sector. In the short time of working with them, they have been able to supply both temporary and permanent staff that match the complex skill set that this sector demands. I look forward to a successful working partnership with Vetro and would not hesitate to recommend them as a recruitment agency.

HR Manager -

Vetro Recruitment has been the cornerstone for my recruitment over the past year, the team and in particular, Kerry, have been outstanding in supporting me to find the best candidates for the roles I needed to fill. Kerry understands the needs of the roles I am recruiting for and finds the best candidates for that position, Kerry will endeavour to follow up with emails and calls to see how they are getting on, arrange for meetings and interviews as well as catch up communications to see if we have any upcoming vacancies. The whole team in Caerphilly have been supportive and there is a real sense of pride about their recruitment and support they provide which is evident as soon as you start working with them.I have found Vetro to be a very professional company to work alongside and they will continue to be the first point of call for my homes recruitment.

Children’s Home Manager -

Hi Ashley, since Emma started doing agency work here, I think it is fair to say that she hit the ground running from day one.She is a very enthusiastic person who shows 100% commitment throughout her shifts. She will arrive early for her shift and will get involved in any activity or task that she is presented with.The way she works with the residents is exactly what we expect and she is always child centred in what she does. There had been situations where our residents have become in a heightened state, however, Emma will always be there to assist and help defuse the situation.She is one of the best agency workers that we have and I think all the team leaders as well the care home manager agree when I say she has fitted in since day one. She is a credit to yourself, and her own standards and ethos are second to none

Team Leader -

We set up the business two years ago and dealt with one or two agencies before being introduced to Vetro by a staff member. Ash came down to meet us and made it a very personal experience that we have not experienced with other agencies. When we ring to request staff, Ash works tirelessly to get things sorted and keeps me informed of developments. I always feel confident he will deliver on my sometimes outrageous staffing demands as he always has previously. In all fairness as we grow, I will consider trying to steal him from you for our own recruitment department as I believe he's that much of an asset.

Ashley is very polite and always professional. He goes over and above to finds the correct candidate for both my provisions, as you can imagine this is very time-consuming for him but never has he complained. He will always send over candidate profiles before the staff start with both provisions and gives them an in-depth handover before arriving so they know what to expect. His proactiveness, and ability to communicate effectively is very much appreciated and essential. I’d say a massive asset to your team at Vetro!

We have been working with Vetro Recruitment for the last 5 months. Since we have utilised the support from Vetro for temp workers, I have been impressed with the quality of candidates that we have been provided. They have all been experienced, up to date with training and most importantly nurturing towards the young people that we support. From a compliance perspective, Vetro by far have the best compliance procedures in ensuring that safer recruitment processes are followed. A big thank you to Rob, for coming out to visit our home and understanding the bespoke needs of Headway and the young people we support to ensure that the appropriate staff are acquired for our homes. Overall, very impressed with the quality of candidates, communication from the team at Vetro and the ongoing support that they are providing. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Vetro Recruitment.

Just a few words to show my gratitude and appreciation for the service provided over the last few months by Codie. Codie responds to emails very quickly and if there is any delay at all I know it is because she is not working at that time. Codie is aware and conscious of the need for consistency in the service and ensures to arrange for the same few staff to attend who know the people we support well. If there is ever an issue, I feel confident to contact Codie in the first instance and she will endeavour to solve it as soon as possible. Codie arranges for staff cover with very little notice on occasions which is greatly appreciated and that takes a lot of stress and worry away from myself trying to manage services and staff. Thanks for all your help. 

Service Manager -

care

I am delighted to express my utmost satisfaction with the experience of collaborating with Codie. Her exceptional professionalism, unwavering dedication, and remarkable expertise within the recruitment realm have truly left a lasting impression. Codie's distinctive quality lies in her proactive communication and transparent approach throughout the entire process. She consistently maintains timely responsiveness, grasps our expectations effortlessly, and consistently delivers exceptional results. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Codie for her exceptional contributions and unwavering support.

We were losing a lot of candidates in the permanent onboarding process once we had offered so we introduced the temp-to-perm model to primarily help address this. 

We still interview the candidates as we would if they were applying for a permanent position, but we found that starting them via the agency initially if we felt them suitable meant they were more likely to complete our compliance process promptly as they would be working for us already.

Onboarding the candidates initially via the agency also allows us to see how they are in the job before we commit to offering them a permanent contract, it also allows the candidates to do the job/work in the service as well to make sure we are the right fit for them as well which reduces dropouts over the long term.

 As we are getting the candidates in quicker than we would via a straight permanent introduction our house managers also benefit from getting their rota's / vacant posts filled quickly which means our existing staff benefit from having more stable staff teams and helping reduce our ad-hoc agency usage which is normally more expensive.
