We acknowledge every client is different with individual needs which is why we favour a bespoke approach. We offer face to face meetings as standard and assign every client a dedicated Client Relationship Manager.

“I have worked with Boston Rose as a recruitment agency for over two years and in this time, whether it was for full time or temporary staff, their work and communications has always been exemplary.”

"They will always find good candidates for me and only send information on potential staff when they are suitable for the role, shifting out unsuitable candidates, saving me time."

Paul Dodd | Curriculum Manager, MAKE UK

“Exceptional professionals”

As a Curriculum Manager in Health Education, I have had the privilege of working closely with the Boston Rose Agency to fulfil our staffing needs for assessing and teaching duties. Their commitment to providing exceptional professionals in the field has been instrumental in the success of our educational programs.

Claire | Curriculum Manager, Health Education

“MGTS recently needed to recruit for a Mechanical Engineering Trainer. Boston Rose was able to source appropriate candidates, arrange interviews and we appointed very quickly.”

"We received a fantastic level of service from the team at Boston Rose; the consultants are always friendly and helpful, listening to our requirements and providing a personal service.

As an exclusive client of theirs we know we can trust them with a role and we do not need to go to another agency thus saving on time and speculative calls and emails from others.

We’ll continue to work with Boston Rose to fill our vacancies and would recommend them to any organisation recruiting into education positions."

Kim Biggins | Company Administrator & P.A., Midland Group Training Services

“I will continue to use Boston Rose and have no hesitation in recommending them for their excellent, specialised education recruitment service.”

"I have been working with Boston Rose for the past couple of years now and have formed an excellent working relationship with Jay. His subject knowledge, effort and communication at all stages have been first rate. He has sourced some great candidates for us over the years (including one of our current directors) with more on the horizon!"

Jonathan Powney | Technical Director, C&G Services Limited

“I would gladly recommend Boston Rose services to other organisations seeking temporary staff.”

"As a client of Will for a number of years, I would gladly recommend his services. He is efficient and knowledgeable within his sector, and has provided me with quality candidates at very short notice, some of whom have progressed to permanent positions.

I will continue to use him for my staffing needs when they arise." 

Tony Green | Head of Department, Foundation Studies

“Given the team at Boston Rose, their professionalism, dedication and expertise means that I have no hesitation in recommending Boston Rose to businesses looking for the best staff to join their company.”

"As I am new to the engineering business, the subject expertise offered by Boston Rose has been invaluable as BEMA needed a number of new staff members over recent months. The advice, guidance and support provided by Ben Maxfield, Cy Brandl and Richard Carnes has given me the opportunity to successfully employ new staff that meet BEMA’s needs. I have been impressed by the levels of commitment shown by Boston Rose and I only receive CV’s of candidates that are suitable for the business thus making the selection process much quicker and easier."

Tracay Mead | Head of Centre, BEMA

“We have worked with Boston Rose for a number of years. They have always proven themselves to be efficient and knowledgeable within the sector and therefore have provided quality candidates.”

"Their consultants and back office team are a pleasure to deal with, they always have that personal touch despite being one of the larger agencies that we use. Our Client Relationship Manager is fantastic and will always work hard to ensure our needs are met. I would have no problem in recommending Boston Rose to other organisations."

Frances Ward | HR Advisor, South Essex College

“I will not hesitate to recommend Boston Rose to my colleagues when they are in urgent need of recruiting.”

"I have been working with Briony from Boston Rose for many months and she has been extremely reliable, professional and friendly. She has always made my roles a priority and has never failed to keep me updated in the process."
