Candidates

Paula

"I like being able to pick and choose the shifts that suit me, I'm given a lot of choice and there is never any pressure. The Harmony Employment Team are warm, friendly and caring and they know how to match my skills and experience with the right placements. Because of Harmony Employment's perseverance, I ended up doing a long term placement that I absolutely loved. Every place I've been to I've felt valued, appreciated and respected. The organisations where I work never make me feel that I am 'just agency' and I think that this is because they expect a high standard from Harmony Employment agency staff. I've been told by a few organisations that they can trust Harmony Employment to provide staff who know what they are doing."

Liz

"It's been so helpful to be on Harmony Employment's books for times I have been without a job or just part time. They have been great, and friendly when helping me get shifts to fit around my schedule in places that suit me! If you are looking for a job in care work it's a good and varied way to get to know different organisations and teams. It's also a really good way to 'get your foot in the door' and to know what full time posts are out there."

Tendai

"I've worked in lots of different services - elderly care, working with homelessness agencies and support for people with learning disabilities. I've signed up for other employment agencies but I've stayed with Harmony Employment because they have given me shifts that I've found interesting. They also pay better than other agencies. They are one of the best agencies that I've ever worked for. The people are really nice."

Bec

"The staff at Harmony Employment always care about their workers. There is never any pressure to take on work yet they seem to find jobs that suit you. Working for Harmony Employment is an opportunity to do a variety of different jobs – it's always different and interesting. I've met some fascinating people working for Harmony Employment."

Craig

"High levels of professionalism throughout, in the office, in supporting staff and in liaising with agencies - there's a real dedication to quality in every aspect. Everything works because the team has a 'can-do', positive approach and because they know the sector so well."
