  • “I approached Sphere Solutions 2 years ago and since then have been very happy with their service. Their consultant, Charlotte, is quick to solve any issue that may arise and takes away a lot of the day-to-day stress which comes from running various contracts simultaneously.

    “We find all members of the Sphere Solutions team to be friendly, reliable and always efficient in solving our staffing needs. We as a company would like to thank Sphere for their excellent customer service and ‘can-do’ attitude.”

  • “I have known Kirsty from Sphere Solutions since 2007.  During this time she has always been able to provide me with high quality senior management roles and contracts. I have always managed to seamlessly move from one position to another and have never been out of employment.

    “When in these roles I have found that I have often needed to source staff to cover sickness or annual leave. The staff  Kirsty provided have always been reliable and of a high calibre.”

  • “Shaylor Group has been working with Sphere Solutions in relation to the supply of agency staff for 18 months. Sphere has sourced numerous site managers and trades operatives which undoubtedly helped us to deliver our projects on time and to budget.  It was refreshing to deal with an agency that genuinely wanted to engage with us throughout the project delivery period, ensuring the best candidates were sourced as required at competitive rates. This combined with their constant communication and speed of response leads me to without hesitation recommend their recruitment services.”

  • “Sphere Solutions have been professional in their approach to resourcing the right labour for our sites. They are aware of the need to provide quality staff first time in order that our contracts run smoothly and to programme. Charlotte is always at the end of the phone when we have any requirements and keeps us informed of all goings on. In particular Charlotte has resourced a number of decorators to assist with the workload we have had with Devon & Cornwall Housing over the last 12 months.”

  • “Over the years Sphere has worked hard to understand the nature and demands of our business and has been invaluable in helping us to both define the roles and fill the posts. No matter where we pitch the type or level of the role, Sphere has always managed to source a well balanced, pre-vetted list of candidates and has been a vital part of our recruitment process, including the giving and receiving of honest feedback from both parties.”

  • “Devonshire Homes recently appointed two members of staff through Sphere Solutions. We had been finding it difficult to fill the roles ourselves as none of the applicants were quite what we were looking for. Sphere stepped in and were able to provide several CV’s for good quality, potential candidates for both roles. Interviews were arranged and staff appointed very quickly, plus within budget. Communication throughout was honest and quick, and we received follow up calls checking that our new staff had continued to meet our expectations. Sphere will be my first port of call for any future recruitment requirements.”

  • “I have worked with Ed Ongley at Sphere Solutions for many years and have found it great working with him. Sphere has supplied me with regular contracts of work, and often provided additional trades and labour support to the projects I am working on. I feel they understand my position as a Freelancer and give appropriate support, plus if I have any administration or payroll queries they are quickly resolved. In short they give great support and value their relationships with candidates and clients. I would recommend them to anyone coming into the industry.”

    David Gamble - Construction Manager
  • “RPB Ltd has used Sphere Solutions for a number of years and we have always found their services to be of a very high standard. As a Carpentry company operating on live construction sites, we always have to work to tight programmes, and due to the nature of the industry there is often a demand for additional resources at short notice. Sphere has assisted us greatly by supplying carpenters of a high standard, in a prompt manner that has allowed us to ensure the projects are successfully completed on time.

    “We have found Sphere Solutions to always be reliable, professional and exceeding our expectations. We will be still using this outstanding company for many years to come.”
