Lewis was very competent and highly professional. He was very supportive and thoughtful along the process. I felt prepared and confident for my interview. I couldn’t recommend him enough!

Lewis has been fab from the start, available at all times for queries, helped prep me for the interview and just a generally kind and attentive person :)
I’ve been with Vetro for just over a year on a long-term placement and I’ve always received great support from them. A particular mention goes to Lowrie who is always happy to help and very responsive in answering any questions or queries. I would highly recommend Vetro and Lowrie!
It is reassuring that should I require information or confirmation on a placement, Theo is always responsive to any queries that I may have. Also, if he is unsure about something, he takes the effort to find out the correct information and contacts me back to inform me.
I was looking for work to support my freelance schedule, and Heath and Vetro was super accommodating and supportive of my requirements. He's always on hand should I have any questions and is very friendly and easy to talk to. It makes me feel like he is a colleague rather than some unknown voice on an email telling me where to go. Vetro is the first agency I've signed up to and as yet I haven't found any reason to join other agencies.
I've been working for Vetro for a few weeks now. So far, I've found the agency to be professional, helpful and have found plenty of work for me. Jack Hayward, in particular, has been very positive, understanding and a big help in finding work, preparing me for placements, and sorting out any issues.
Gareth was very informative and was extremely helpful with the whole process from start to finish. I have recommended Vetro to all my colleagues
I've worked under Vetro Agency for 3 years. They are amazing and very professional especially Lowrie who has helped me with all my queries.
Since starting work with Vetro I have them to be professional and understanding. My contact has been Gareth who is always on the end of the phone to answer any questions. He is also flexible and understands the needs of his clients. Very happy so far. Craig
I highly praise Lewis Hill for his positivity and professionalism, by the way he supports and guided me throughout the whole process. With his reassurance for the interview. I was successful for the job, so I want to thank him and let him know that we need more people like him in society. Mabel
Lewis has been amazing in helping me get the job. He kept me up to date, called and got me ready for the interview. He called the day of the interview to check I was ok and prepared for the interview. I appreciated all his help.
From start to finish Lisa has been very professional and has done everything she could to find me work. Very responsive when I have needed questions answering, Lisa has been on the end of the phone when I have needed her or via email. I would definitely recommend Vetro recruitment and I would not hesitate to use them again.
Vetro is an excellent organisation to work with. I would especially recommend working with Lisa Griffiths who's professionality is simply excellent.
Lisa was very professional and always happy to help, Always rung me back when she said she would and found out any information that I asked for Appreciated her ringing before my interview to wish me luck and prep me.
When you work with Alastair, what strikes you is his energy, drive, and commitment to being his absolute best - as an employer, service provider, mentor, and colleague. His values of honesty, integrity, and openness are reflected in the way he does business and means he genuinely does deliver. More than this though - he is a joy to work with - funny, kind, and loyal to a fault. A properly decent person working hard to support a sector which needs more recruiters like him.
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 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.
"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 provide 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 continue to evolve as we do, I would not go anywhere else for my recruitment needs."
The school is now in its 3rd year with Vetro Recruitment.My main point of contact with Vetro is Mr Ross Harries. Ross provides an 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 it 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.
I sometimes find recruitment consultants to be pushing and impersonal. Menna, however, is different, she comes across as professional and approachable. I’ve have worked with Menna for a little while now and we have developed a great working relationship. Menna has really taken the time to understand our business and the type of candidates that we require. She won’t just put forward any candidate, I know that she takes the time to make sure we get the right candidate. She’s efficient as well , if I needed candidates for tomorrow she’d find them for me, and they’d be great! She goes over and above other recruitment consultants, and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
"From our pool of agency, Vetro is our number one agency to go to due to the high level of service they provide.My contact Ashely Leek is extremely professional, efficient and friendly. He provides us with a service we can rely on, is quick to respond to our needs for staff at sometimes very short notice. We always receive very positive feed back from our staff on how well Vetro staff work and fit into our services.We look forward to continuing our good working relationship with Vetro in the future."
"Just a short note to thank you very much for all your hard work and dedication in finding us our ideal RGN candidate. As a company, we will utilise your services for all our recruitment needs and we will most definitely recommend you to colleagues.Thanks again, much appreciated."
"My experience with Vetro Recruitment so far been very pleasant and easy. Since the start of my application with Vetro Recruitment, my details were being dealt with by Emma Morris. Emma has at all times been extremely professional and helpful. She guided me through the complete registration process and was always available if I needed to get her on the phone or via email. Emma has always been true to her word. For example, she told me at the beginning of this application process that within a week of receiving my DBS check back I could already be attending shifts. This is exactly what happened in my case. The complete process of signing up with Vetro Recruitment has been very easy and was completed in great time, this is thanks to the professionalism showed to me by Emma. In actual fact, I have already mentioned Vetro Recruitment to friends of mine as I was so pleased and satisfied at the speed and ease of signing up. thank you."
"Lauren has been very great through this process. Everything was done very professionally and efficiently. I had emailed her some questions one evening, just thinking she will reply the following day but, she replied that evening which just shows the commitment to her role and the company. I have been very impressed with Vetro Recruitment and is with out a doubt a company that I will be telling friends / family about, ensuring I can spread the word. Many thanks for your time, Kind Regards, Amy"
"I have registered with a number of Recruitment Agencies and decided to register with Vetro Education in July 2016. I have only favourable comments to make about the registration process. I was advised as to the documents to take to register and when I arrived, I found the whole experience friendly and professional. I was seen at the time arranged and the interview and explanation of the process was clear and positive. I came away feeling that the experience had been both pleasant and thorough. There is dialogue with clients and I would (and have) recommend the agency to friends. I feel that the Consultant who registered me, has a genuine interest in securing work for me and consider that my experience at Vetro is the most professional and positive I have had. That is a great comfort for someone like me, who is new to the Recruitment Agency process. I would like to give a special thanks to Abi for her professionalism and encouragement."
“Five stars aren't enough in my opinion to rate this company. After a career break and a very stressful year. I contacted Vetro and my query was answered by a Julie Connick, this lady has given me so much support, her energy and enthusiasm knows no bounds, she is an amazing individual. Alun and Alistair who started Vetro are so approachable and friendly, yet professional and supportive. You can contact them all at any time, popping into the office is like popping into your best friends house, everyone is welcoming.I cannot recommend this agency enough, I am currently working for them and hope to continue to do so for many more years to come. Whether you're a nurse, hcsw, teacher or support worker, vetro will support you in gaining employment.”
"Alun Davies of Vetro recruitment found work for me as a therapeutic care worker in July 2015, this role was a change of career path for me but from the initial phone conversation with Alun after sending in my CV it was apparent that he is very honest, open, friendly and efficient in his work. Alun answered all my queries via telephone and email extremely rapidly and in most cases within an hour or so of my questions being sent.Alun also acted as a very professional and time-saving interface between the prospective employer and myself in the initial stages of the process by chasing up and forwarding administration requirements at a rapid pace. When I called in for interview with Alun & Vetro Recruitment in Cardiff I found a very warm welcome, valuable advice and a good cup of coffee. From my experience, I would fully recommend the services of Alun Davies & Vetro Recruitment and rate them as first class."
"I had contact with numerous recruitment agencies when I started my Job search but have to admit I had never heard of Vetro. From the first contact with them the staff that dealt with me were very efficient, friendly, flexible and always totally professional, Nothing was too much trouble. This helped take the stress of my search and made it positive experience throughout. The service from Veto was focused and proactive leaving all other agencies in the race well behind them. I will recommend Vetro to fellow social care professionals. Vetro set an excellent standard that other agencies can only aspire to David"
"I have recently just received a job through your agency and it was the job I have always wanted!Kerry Brown has been an angel, when I had little faith in myself she didn't give up, every time I had a question and needed support or information she was there to give a helping hand.She has always been bubbly, enthusiastic and very supportive while on the phone. Kerry has made this so easy when other agencies have made it so difficult and complex.All I really wish to say is that she is fantastic and has been a big help, she deserves a pat on the back.Thank you."
"I applied for a job through indeed.com not long ago. I was then contacted by Lauren Thomas from Vetro recruitment regarding this application. She has been very helpful throughout the whole process from getting the application off, to getting an interview, to being offered the job. Lauren is very efficient and gets back to you very quickly. I appreciate all the help that she has given me throughout the process and I will be sure to contact Vetro Recruitment in the future if any friends or family are looking at working with adults or children with learning disabilities.Many thanks"
"I can't thank you enough for all your help and support you gave me through my job search. You all cheerful and still remain professional in all you do. You all go out of your ways to help people like me to get a job in such difficult times like this. Keep it up Vetro team and Emma Morris is the cherry on the top.Thanks Emma, please keep smiling.From Tina"
"Please accept this as our testimonial for Abi Harris at Vetro Recruitment.Abi is our link at Vetro Education for supply. We are very pleased that she has been able to meet our needs as and when requested, even when our requests have been very specific, particularly with SEN requirements. She is both cheerful and professional and not at all 'pushy' as I have found with other agencies. She has also been very honest if she doesn't think our needs will be met, which is rare, again unlike other agencies we have used who just send someone suitable or not! We hope to continue this relationship into the future.Many Thanks, Natalee"
"Vetro recruitment are by far THE best social care agency I have had the pleasure of working for.Coming from someone with nearly 20 years experience of possibly every facet of care, I can honestly say that the staff and management are more mates than employers and I would heartily recommend anyone thinking of joining the team to do so, an excellent company that are going places.I'm still in touch with the staff at Vetro especially Emma and the manager Alastair, I always come off the phone laughing. On a serious note and to reiterate a point, get in touch with Vetro and talk to the team, contracts country wide in a range of services for HCA's, Nurses and a range of Support contracts. Permanent, part time or bank work with you choosing where and when you want to work. What have you got to lose."
"I just wanted to let you know how great Kerry is and has been with me. I have known her from years ago when she placed me as a temp (obviously I passed the interview on my own merit), and I was offered a perm job from that. I have now been offered another permanent job through Kerry. She is just such a lovely open and friendly person and I am sure that she will do very well in your organisation. I have worked for lots of agencies and it is rare to find such a good representative. I felt I just wanted to let you know how happy I have been with the service and of course I will be able to give positive feedback about your organisation which so makes a change.Many thanks"
"Dear Lauren,Thank you so for all your help in aiding me with finding a great job that i cannot wait to begin.You have been very supportive and have kept in contact regularly to keep me updated. You really have made this nerve wracking process so much more relaxed for for myself. Again Lauren, thank you ever so much for all you have done for me."
"Kerry was great to be in contact with. Very friendly and helpful. Knowledgeable when questions were asked and if she didn't know, she found out and called back as quick as possible. She always called when she said she would and kept me informed throughout. Even though I personally decided not to take the job offered to me, Kerry was supportive and non judgemental. Would highly recommend her to anyone using Vetro Recruitment."

"As a new agency Social Worker, I would like to comment on the exceptional support and professionalism I have received from Vetro Recruitment.I particularly welcomed the professional personal approach offered by Alastair Tulloch during registration with the agency, sourcing employment and gaining employment with the Youth Offending Team.Being new to agency procedures, Alastair was able to explain all relevant details in a supportive manner; any additional queries were dealt with promptly and efficiently.I would love to continue my employment career with Vetro Recruitment as I am extremely thankful for the support I have received from professionals who have a wealth of knowledge and expertise."
"I am a Newly Qualified Social Worker and when I graduated it was quite difficult to get a first decent social work job. Alastair from Vetro was very supportive throughout my employment process. Thanks to Alastair I managed to get a job in Cardiff Council MHSOP! I was so happy with this. This is a very good step forward towards a good social work career. I would strongly recommend this agency as your employer. Do not hesitate because you will be very supported! I know that from my own experience."
"I would like to comment on the exceptional support and professionalism I have received by Alastair Tulloch from sending my C.V in, interview too present. Alastair answers all my queries via telephone and emails making me feel at ease, nothing is a bother. In the short time with Vetro Recruitment Alastair has found me employment which I am really enjoying the challenges. I am really looking forward to continuing my employment with Vetro Recruitment."
"Trawling through job adverts had left me disheartened that I would never get the new career I wanted. All that changed when I went through Vetro recruitment. Alastair was there all the way to help and support me and match my skills to the right job for me. Now I'm starting my new career path and achieving my goals."
"Vetro were my way back into work after a long time away due to the birth of my little girl. Nothing was too much trouble for Alun and he kept in touch throughout. Great help and always there "
"To whom it may concern, I am writing to you just to let you know that I'm settling in well and a big thank you to Vetro for giving me the opportunity to be part of the team. However, for me knowing that there's a person like Emma, I feel like her training makes it easier to openly discuss about any issues in a friendly but professional manner and I just think she's amazing at what she does."
"In my current role, my company work with many recruitment agencies. On a personal level, I have found you both professional and extremely supportive throughout the whole process from the initial application to the interview process.The marketplace is saturated with companies in your industry but the service you have provided me compared to the others has been above and beyond my expectations.I will be recommending you to others to use your service, I have already spoken to my son as he might be looking for a change in direction in the near future"
"From my initial contact with Vetro Recruitment, I found Josie who was the Consultant in charge of the position I had applied for very professional, honest and passionate about the specific role.The knowledge regarding the sector, clients and my requirements were second to none. My biggest criticism of recruitment agencies previously was lack of clear and consistent communication. Vetro Recruitment understand the needs of their clients and took the time to understand my objectives and career aspirations"
"I highly recommend this incredible team, from start to finish they were fantastic. Cerys was a real help both prior to interview and after with friendly professional advice. Basically, choose Vetro if you want an experienced, honest team that will get you work"
"I have worked with Lauren. So professional and effective. She really made me feel at ease. From the first moment i had spoken to Lauren at Vetro Recruitment. From the moment I had my first interview to the moment I received good news that I had got the job, Lauren has been on hand all the time. Even when she left the office I thought she would email me back the next day but it was that same evening. So thankful to have Lauren support me. Couldn't of done it without you! Thank you"
"Heyyyy Lauren, I just wanted to drop you and email to let you know I am so so greatful of all the help you gave me in my achievement of getting the job I wanted. You've helped me out so much and I cannot be more thankful for you. Even if i did send you tiredless emails at stupid times, I am thankful for you always being on hand for that extra bit of help during my interviews. So this was just a message to say thank you and you couldn't of done anymore to help me out. I'm at work on Wednesday and Thursday 8am - 9pm. 13 hours and I'll give you a call or drop you an email to let you know how I am getting on. Thank you so much Lauren, I mean it from the bottom of my heart. Your a star and a princess. "
"If I was an agency manager, Ashley would be the first person I would seek to employ. Knowledgeable, sincere, professional but most of all honest and a person you can trust to deliver. I have over 20 years experience of working within the Health and Social Care / Justice spectrums and have worked for a number of agencies, Vetro being without doubt the best and having a staff member like Ashley only adds to its success."
"I was quite new in working within the health and social sector but with Ashley’s help, I have gained valuable experience and a lot of knowledge in this particular background. I find Ashley to be an extremely hard working individual and dedicated his time in finding you the right placement. "
"I have dealt with Ash since joining Vetro and my experience dealing him has been absolutely fantastic. He responds to every enquiry or request on time. He endeavours to pass across all necessary information and is always pleasant when dealing with staffI will recommend Ashley Leek as a very valuable staff to any organisation"
"Ashley has been invaluable support every step of the process at Vetro for me, from my application through to providing regular work . As I have transitioned from full time work to agency to help with University commitments, Ashley has been fantastic at providing assurance, wealth of information and continuous contact for anything I may need. I have been incredibly impressed with his professionalism throughout but one example that has stood out for me is how he called me after my second ever night shift in this line of work, to see how I coped and if there was any further support he could offer me. I have worked in a large corporate company for 8years who prides themselves on staff well-being and have never received the support I have had since joining Vetro and working with Ashley.Ashley is an absolute credit to your team and has without doubt changed my perception of recruitment agencies for the positive!"
"Just a quick email to say that one of your employees has been absolutely amazing. She has really helped myself out regarding a job position. It didn’t go through as smoothly as I would of liked but Kerry Brown was a big help. Reassuring myself and getting things moving from the employers side.Just thought you should know (if you don’t already), that Kerry was very helpful, friendly and easy to talk to about my concerns."
"Dear Kerry Thank you so much for all your help. You, as a representative of your company, have been very helpful, monitoring the whole process well and have kept me informed at every stage of the application. You have responded in a timely manner when I have called you and reassured me that my application was proceeding"
"Dear Nikki,I am writing to let you know I have been extremely pleased with your help as I was looking for new employment. I am glad to give you great, well deserved feedback. In your service, I found you were friendly, yet professional and also very attentive and flexible.Thank you for indulging that I was not always available to talk but I am glad to share with you that things are on the mend with my father in law's health and I am looking forward to starting my new job!I will gladly get in touch again, should I need to look for employment again. I wish you luck with all your future endeavours."
"I applied for work through vetro and they arranged an interview for me. Emma Morris was the lady who I dealt with and I have to say she was very helpful and friendly. She gave me advice before my interview which helped. I now have a new job thanks to Vetro and Emma."
"Dear Emma, I would like to thank Vetro for putting me onto a different adventure in my career.I would also like to say speaking with Emma Morris that works for Vetro was a fab experience, she a very enthusiastic, bubbly and lively person which I found very easy and relaxed to talk to and she has helped to converse with my pre employer many times.I have no hesitation to recommend Vetro and their staff to my friends and colleagues."
"Hello Ashley I’m writing just to thank you and your colleagues at Vetro for finding shifts for me with a client in Tredegar. This additional work has been appreciated leading up to Christmas.The client and their full time employees at their Tredegar residence have been very helpful, polite and professional and I look forward to more shifts with them. I am very grateful to you and Vetro for your help."
"One of the main reasons I signed the temporary contract for Brecon High School was Alex’s friendly, approachable but professional manner. She always has the facts at her fingertips and if not gets back to me very quickly. She is knowledgeable about the realities of supply teaching in the mainstream arena and is appreciative of getting in and getting the job done – which makes a huge difference.Alex is very accommodating which again is like a breath of fresh air and engenders loyalty. All correspondence has been dealt with quickly and efficiently.Alex is a credit to Vetro and her whole approach is a breath of sunshine for those of us at the chalk face."
"I'm very pleased to work with Alex, she is always there when I need advice. She is always encouraging me to do this one step more if I have a lack of self confidence.I need to mention something about Ross, who is looking after me together with Alex. They have loads of empathy, and I know i can always count on them!I can't imagine Vetro without of Alex, she is the foundation of my working experience with this agency.Thank you Alex!"
"Well what can I say. I first met Abi Harris when she worked for another agency where I was registered. After Abi moved to Vetro Recruitment I soon realised that it was Abi that was the driving force behind my success at obtaining work rather than through that company. Realising that Abi worked now for Vetro I immediately decided to follow her and registered straight away. I soon started getting work. I have found Abi to be very approachable and supportive and always available. Abi totally understands the needs of the schools and of the worker ensuring an appropriate match."
"At last an agency FOR the workers and not for exploitation. Staff are friendly and professional. No holds barred honesty and a wonderful, confidential atmosphere to air any personal or professional concerns or issues. I feel registering with this agency has been a significant step in my professional development. Thank you to Abi and the rest of the team. Have recommended and would recommend to anyone in education."
"I signed up with Vetro in October it only took 1 week for all my checks to be completed which was fantastic I was then available for work. I have had regular work since, Abi Harris is the person who I deal with she is amazing, very easy to talk to and always at the end of the phone I would recommend this agency to anyone who is looking for work."
"For the entire time I have been communicating with Abi, I have felt comfortable and feel that I can rely on her. I have found with previous teaching agencies that there is little to no communication, but this is not the experience I have received from her. Abi is very upfront about what work they have and I felt as though nothing was too much to ask, getting clear responses even if it took time to explain, nothing is too much trouble. Everything was made clear from start to finish! I cannot recommend Abi as a consultant enough! Thank you Abi,"
'Working for Vetro has given my career a much needed boost. Alex and Abi have worked tirelessly to give me a great experience as an employee. I have been allocated some great placements and thoroughly enjoy working for them. It has been a sincere pleasure from the start.."
"Alex is a very hardworking and fantastic consultant. In the first few weeks of my employment with the agency she assigned me to works that were in line with my expertise.Very often, she is in touch to check if I'm ok with my current assignments or if I have some concerns that need immediate attention and she always provides options for convenience to my work and my pay.I'm very happy that she managed to introduce me to a school which needs my service for the whole academic year permanently starting this September. This is a very big thing to me-going to a school permanently for at least a year.Working with Alex and Vetro is really worth my effort and time. I'm very grateful that I registered with Vetro through Alex."
"In April I relocated to Brecon from Worcester and joined Vetro Recruitment. Most of my teaching experience has been working on Supply so it was refreshing to join an agency where the staff really value their candidates.I mainly deal with Abi and Alex and have found both of them friendly and approachable. Indeed Alex is the friendliest recruitment consultant that I have ever worked with. Nothing is too much trouble and she has a real interest in how my day has actually been. Unlike other consultants I have encountered from other agencies she is willing to go the extra mile to find out about her teachers. She has a clear passion for her job, but she is never pushy and always listens. She has an extensive knowledge of her schools and she will always be honest about what the school is like. She listens intently to my needs and never tries to push me into a position that I'm not comfortable with.I'm looking forward to working with Vetro Recruitment after the summer. In my opinion Alex, Abi and Ross are a credit to the company and the service they provide is second to none."
"I have been working for Alex at Vetro Education for several months now and I have been impressed by the professionalism carried out by her. For example, there was a quick turnover from the time I register with the company to the time I started work. This is no doubt down the work Alex carried out. In addition to this, Alex keeps in contact with myself to see how my placement is going. This shows that she appreciates her clients. In my opinion, Alex is an asset to Vetro by the dedication she shows to her work and to her clients and the company will only grow in strengths by employers such as this. I would recommend Vetro to anyone. By far the best agency I have worked for."
"I have worked with Vetro Education and Alex for only a short time, but had a great experience. Alex has been brilliant from the very beginning of signing me up, to finding me work."
"Whilst on maternity leave I decided to change my career, I wanted something that was more flexible and better suited to family life. After seeing my CV online, Abi invited me into the office to tell me more about opportunities at Vetro. I was dreading returning from maternity leave but Abi and the team at Vetro were very friendly. Abi really put my mind at ease and was there to support me, even before I started work with Vetro. Even now, if I need support then I know that one of the team at Vetro is there to help. Returning from maternity leave was a lot easier knowing that I had full support from Abi and the team!"
"Alex at Vetro education was just brilliant all the way through my time with the agency. Even at the start, when I went to the registration meeting everything was explained to me by Alex all the ins and outs so I knew where I stood. I didn't have this with any other agency. Alex and the professional manner that come across from her was one of the reasons I signed up with this agency. Alex wasn't long in finding work for me once I got started with Vetro. Alex is a great recruiter and such a people person. If there was ever a problem I know I could contact Alex any day or night and she would always answer and find a solution. I only worked for this company for a very small amount of time and when I found a permanent position in education she was one of the first to congratulate me. Thank you, Alex for everything you have done. Neil "
"Thank you very much for employing Alex. I am very grateful for her dedication and hard work. She is always available for any concerns and for some work-related concerns.Her constant communication with the school I am currently in is a big plus as it is a kind of bridge with my employer and myself - to know issues that I or the agency may not be aware of , and also the concerns that the school may want to raise. Keep up the good work Alex."
"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."
"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."
"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!’
"Extremely happy with the service Ross Harries from Vetro Education provides for me at St Martins High. Very efficient and quick to sort any cover that I require and always sends quality staff to maintain our standards here"
"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!"
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."
"Abi is our consultant at Vetro Education. She has provided us with office items that display Vetro’s contact details, her candidates bring their DBS’ with them and she has given her contact details so she can be contacted out of school hours. These strategies have been introduced by Abi to enable us to contact Vetro and book supply (even at short notice) with ease and efficiency.Abi has taken the time to visit our school, she is friendly, efficient and helpful. She is professional and approachable and always gives clear information about candidates and their availability. It is always a pleasure to contact Abi"
"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."
"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."
"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."
"I have dealt with Sarah Petticrew since joining Vetro care and my experience dealing with her has been absolutely Amazing . She responds to every enquiry or request on time. She endeavours to pass across all necessary information and she is always pleasant when dealing with staff ! I strongly recommend Sarah Petticrew as a very high standard & valuable staff to any organisation."
“My application and training experience in vetro was very smooth and pleasant and I am very thankful to Julie Petticrew and Sarah, they ensured I had all the information I needed and clearly answered all my questions which made me trust the recruitment process. Thank you"
“Sarah's been supportive from day 1! I always there at the other end of the phone. Shifts are flexible and always more to pick up! A great agency with great support and from people who have worked in the settings before so they know the issues and how to support you!"
"Thank you so much for the support from the start of my application.... I was successful and got the job and I am so grateful for the support from yourself Julie it has been continuous throughout. You have made it stress-free and any problem I have had has not been too big for you to guide and help me with. You have a fantastic personality thank you for being understanding and keep up the good humour it certainly made me comfortable having you on the other end of the line"
"5 stars aren’t enough to rate this fantastic agency. After graduating university, I knew I wanted to teach however didn’t know what age group I would fit best in. This is the reason why I decided to join Vetro in order to find out the answer. Alex has been such an amazing help throughout the application process and trying to find me work. Such a lovely and professional person who made me feel very welcome. Not only does she find me work and provide me with advice, but she also reminds me to send my time sheet on time in order to get paid! This lady has given me so much support, her energy and enthusiasm is amazing!I’ve been with Vetro now for about 4 months and have had constant work from them. They’re excellent at what they do and have some amazing places for individuals to work. Not only has my time with them given me further experience in a classroom environment but has also developed my confidence and ability to teach. I 100% now know what age group I want to teach in the future.Cannot recommend this agency enough!"
"After teaching for 18 years (15 as a Middle Leader at a Comprehensive). I decided to retrain and follow a different career path. Supply teaching offers me a great opportunity to keep up my skills and earn extra money whilst building a new company in a different field.Ross and Alex have been fantastic during my transition. They quickly got all the compliance checks through so that I could work. They find work on the days I request that fits in with the new business. I often recommend Vetro to other supply teachers and ex-colleagues who have retired or left the profession. "
"Alex has found me some really great placements and is always a pleasure to deal with. I feel really supported by the agency and can talk to Alex any time I need anything... Best agency I've been with to date!"
"This is a fantastic company to work for. Alex Milakovic is absolutely amazing. She made me feel very at ease in the interview and answered all my questions. Work was found straight away and she has been such a great support and so friendly. I would highly recommend this company!!!"
"Process to sign with Vetro was simple and quick. Staff were extremely helpful. Alex Milakovic found me a supply job very quickly in my specialist area and we keep in contact on a regular basis ensuring all parties know what is happening. The trick is to be flexible and Vetro will accommodate - Thanks"
"Couldn’t recommend this agency more. They’ve offered me plenty of jobs and got me into a long time placement. Alex was helpful when I signed up to the agency and she has always been a text away if I need any help or advice."
"A great company which has provided me with brilliant opportunities. A special thank you to Alex for helping me with all my queries and constantly updating me with chances to work."
"Thoroughly content and satisfied working for Vetro Recruitment. Special thank you to Alex for staying in touch, being friendly and answering any questions I had!"
"Really brilliant staff at the Liverpool office, Chad Brown was really upbeat, dedicated and diligent and found me an ideal job. I know he also built a great relationship with the employer too, thanks for making everything so easy!"
"Although I accepted a job before my interview that Vetro arranged for me, I couldn't have been dealt with better. Lyndsay Burder was absolutely brilliant from start to finish, often keeping in touch with me even when she wasn't supposed to be at work! Would recommend her highly."
"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."
"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"
Kerry Brown supported me just over 12 months ago to apply for a job that was advertised with Vetro. They were looking for a senior in a children's home and they wanted someone who had an NVQ level 3 in childcare. My qualifications were all in adult care but Kerry saw my potential and got me an interview and I got the job. Kerry gave me lots of support through the whole process and even chased my references. Last month I contacted Kerry again and spoke about a job Vetro was advertising. Kerry was wonderfully helpful and very supportive she had an application form sent to me within a short space of time and had arranged an interview, again keeping in contact the whole time to chase references and start dates etc. I highly recommend getting in touch with Vetro and definitely Kerry Brown, she is a fantastic, enthusiastic, supportive individual. Thank you so much, Kerry
"I had applied for one of your support roles and I am very happy I was offered the position. I have to say I am very impressed with the contacts I have had with Vetro. Cerys has been very supportive, always very friendly on the phone and proactive in helping me gain the position. I can not thank you enough for your support. I would recommend your company to any one looking for employment. again thank you."
I would just like to praise Ashley for his commitment to finding me work through Vetro. Each placement he has found me has been of high quality and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on each assignment. Due to his efforts, I am happy to commit full time to Vetro and hope to work with yourselves for the foreseeable future.
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.
Am so grateful to be working with Vetro, it is such a fantastic company, the company has provided me with grate opportunities
I would like to thank Julie and Sarah on the nursing time since working at Vetro Nursing for nine months they have been so Welcoming and supportive myself to gain more skills and knowledge to become the best I can be. All friendly staff when calling the office. Again thank you and let’s continue with the future.
I have enjoyed working with Vetro and the nursing team. Sarah is always ready to listen to whatever request and assist in whatever way she can. My work experience with them has been good as what they tell you is what they do. With Vetro nursing team you know exactly where you stand on any work issues. It's been fantastic working with Vetro
I am a full-time student and time can be very important, when I applied to Vetro I liked their urgency they didn't have too much protocol,I did my training in no time didn't have to wait too long. I also like the professionalism that is often accompanied with a friendly and family kind of atmosphere.
Joining Vetro recruitment was a really smooth process. Sarah and Julie have been really helpful in helping me fit into my job role, many thanks
Hi Kerry, It occurred to me today that I have been on your books for about year and just wanted to say something about that. I have really appreciated the support from the Vetro team and when I took a permanent full-time position I was very eager to stay on your books due to the loyalty and support I have received from Ashley. I believe this loyalty has been a two way street and Ashley has always made me feel like a valued member of the team at Vetro and not a commodity or a number. In turn, I have recommended friends and colleagues to Vetro, wholly due to his professionalism and people skills, to say nothing of his experience and understanding of the challenges faced by support workers in this sector. WIth best wishes Sean.
Hi I am an agency support worker of Vetro I'm very pleased to let you know that working with Mr Ashley Leek is incomparable with other consultants I work with other agencies, he is outstanding and supportive when you need something else about shifts, although I'm still new to Vetro he is very accommodating to me when I throw concerns and never missed a call back if this guy is busy. Ashley is an asset and potentially can become one of the managers in Vetro because he has all the quality of becoming a manager soon.
After leaving full-time employment I was nervous about what agency could offer and if I could get the hours needed to become a full-time agency worker. I had no need to worry- I work between the care and nursing team and am offered shifts across a wide range of sectors including mental health, children's services and homeless hostels. Since joining Vetro I have not looked back. 5-star service.
Hi KerryI would like to just thank you so much for all the hard work you put into helping me get the job I applied for with your agency. From start to finish you have been wonderful going that extra mile to help me along. I would recommend you and your organisation to anybody searching for a job expecting positive results.
My name is Janet and I am a Director of the care company.We have engaged the services of Vetro Care on many occasions when requiring agency staff to cover our service.Our initial meetings have been with Ashley Leek who met with us to discuss our company and what our needs both present and future would be.Ashley was a warm young man who listened carefully to the needs of our service, he gave assurance he believed he would be able to meet our requirements for agency staff who would be able to work with our young people.This has been very successful and whenever we have approached Vetro Care Ashley Leek is our main point of contact.Ashley has also been available for us to call outside of office hours and he is always pleasant and amenable.We are currently undergoing changes within our company which has itself brought complex issues. Again Ashley has been available to us and has had several face to face meetings with us enable both himself and the Vetro Care Agency to understand our services and the changes which are currently being implemented.This has led to us being confident when we are provided with workers from Vetro they are the right workers to complete the required roles.Ashley presents as very professional during our meetings and we are assured he has a clear understanding of our business and the complex issues that arise when working with young people.We will continue to work with Vetro and use Ashley as our main point of contact due to the confidence we have in his ability and the professional manner in which he responds to our requests for service.If you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact meYours SincerelyJanet
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!
Since joining Vetro in the middle of last year I have been extremely happy with job opportunities I have been given Ashley leek who is my main consultant has been amazing from the first moment I was interested in joining , he is very approachable and always places myself to match my own job skills and experience, I’ve recently been working for reach in Tredegar and I feel this placement matches my skills well and I enjoying working there . Ashley is constantly trying to find myself work in learning disabilities sector. I have been registered with several agencies over the years but I feel Vetro give their employees and clients 100% due to this I’m now only registered with Vetro. As a consultant Ashley leek is amazing he is in constant contact with myself and tries to place me on daily shifts. I have also recommended several friends to Ashley, and they also appear as happy as myself with all his hard work.
Vetro has been an amazing company to work for. My main point of contact is Ross who is professional and efficient in contacting me for work absolute pleasure to deal with and extremely friendly and helpful. Never been out of work since joining and always goes out of his way to help you. Fantastic company to work for.
Hi NikkiI just wanted to say how grateful I am to you for all your help and support in my recent job application and a successful job offer. You made a very daunting process very easy and encouraged me daily, either on the phone or by email. Your friendly approach made the world of difference to me, and your helpful advice was just that! You guided me professionally through all the stages of application and was always there if I needed anything. I decided not to accept the job due to the shift patterns not working with my family. Not once did you make me feel pressured and showed total support in my decision, thank you!! You’ve also gone over and above by contacting the company asking if there were any other positions more suitable, I never asked this of you, so a very BIG thank you! Your company are very lucky to have you! Thank you so so much again for everything, and hope to speak with you again soon!Louise x
I would just like to inform you of the fantastic help I have had from your lovely colleague Nikki Hunt (Section Manager), she has gone over and above with her support and assistance with my applicational met in equal measure by her professional approach is equally tempered by a caring and humorous touch whether by email and phone, I feel she would make a terrific tutor/ mentor, your company is graced by her presence, please pass on my heartfelt thanks, she's a diamond.

"I was looking for a position away from the care sector. Kerry really listened to me and found me the perfect opportunity for me! I feel that I am much happier in myself. I am experiencing a work-life balance in which is balanced. more than that I am feeling really valued and supported in my new role and am looking forward to this chapter in my life where I can make a difference and feel positive about it!! Thank you, Kerry, none of this would be possible without you."
Vetro is an amazing agency! I cannot thank Shawni enough for all the work she has given me. Shawni is a very professional, caring and understanding person. Shawni is always communicating with me and keeping me up to date plus she is very friendly, honest and down to earth. Always getting me long-term work when possible.
Vetro is a friendly and professional recruitment agency to work for. My main point of contact has been Ross, who is always there to help or advise. Nothing is too much trouble. I signed to the agency and received work immediately and am still in my current post. Ross has been amazing, so friendly and always there to help if needed. Ross' communication is excellent. I would and have recommended Vetro to many, without any hesitation. Thank you Ross (Vetro)
Vetro has been one of the best agencies I have worked with! Mostly I have dealt with Shawni and she has been fantastic from start to finish! She has been very professional and made me feel extremely welcome before and during the interview process. Since joining she has made the effort to call/text/email me to check in on my work, pay and and make sure I’m happy with everything.
Dear Nikki, Thank you so much for the amazing experience that I have had in dealing with you. No question was too much of a bother for you to give me a detailed explanation and make sure that I understood everything in this process correctly. You're such a pleasure to speak to and I appreciate how much effort you put into making sure that I got an interview for the position I wanted. You gave me continuous feedback on where we were at each step along the way and made sure to get an answer for me much sooner than I could have hoped for after my interview! This is what applying for a job should be like, an absolute pleasure! Thank you again, Natasha
My experience with Vetro and Rachel has been a life-changing one. I started my career in care with adults with autism. Rachel always found me plenty of work and was always available if I needed any help. Rachel also introduced me to working with young people and this is where I found my passion really lied. After working with the agency for over 6 months, and with the help of the agency I'm now being taken on full time by the children's residential. In the new year I start my new career, which wouldn't of been possible without Vetro and definitely the help and support of Rachel. Thank you with your help and for definitely pointing me in the right direction with my career. Regards Donna
Dear Alex, Many thanks for sending the email and I fully accept the offer.This position is the best opportunity for me and I truly believe that I can make a real difference but I believe you have played a pivotal role. You have been an amazing support and, in my opinion, gone above and beyond to show kindness and encouragement. I thank you so very much. Vetro should be incredibly proud and grateful to have you in the team.Yours sincerelyKim
Hi Menna, Just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to meet with me today. Feel a lot better finally meeting and speaking with someone as lovely as you. Meant a lot, and restored my faith that there are people willing to help. Kind regards Debs
We can always rely on Shawni at Vetro recruitment to ensure all our staffing requirements are met. Shawni is very efficient and always get back to us straight away.We would highly recommend Shawni and the Vetro Recruitment team to other schools who are wishing to recruit the best teaching staff.
I have worked with Aidan on many placements and he has found the right candidate with the right experience. They have been ready to start immediately and there have been no compliance issues. The service he has provided has been very honest and professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to other services when looking for candidates. He's an all round top bloke!
The team in Liverpool are all extremely friendly and polite and will go the extra mile to help anyone who needs it. Aidan is very down to earth and very approachable. One of the best recruitment agency's out there.
A completely professional recruitment company from start to finish. In particular, Aidan has a personable nature that is most supportive of candidates.
Fantastic service, overall really friendly and extremely helpful. Would recommend Tom as he is a great help.
I would just like to say how amazing this recruitment organisation is. Really pleased I was able to work with them to start my new employment Aiden Ruffinato has been amazing!!! He is so professional, efficient but also down to earth and easy to talk to. So big thank you and keep up the good work Aiden
