Over the past four years I have had nothing but support and encouragement from my recruitment agency. Linear Recruitment has exceeded all of my expectations

  • Friendly, always there for you and if half the agencies out there followed suit the recruitment sector wouldn't have hald the negative stigma it has. 

    L Ridgeon  (Candidate)
  • The level of contact and communication was 100% every step of the way. I am very impressed with Linear Recruitment’s professionalism and welcoming service. I had registered with other leading agencies but they paled in comparison.

    S Bone  (Candidate)
  • I joined Linear Recruitment through a referral and have since not regretted this. Linear is manned by knowledgable front line staff who listen to concerns and are very quick in response to issues or emails. The rail recruitment team always inform you in advance if there are no shifts for the coming week or if there are any changes and this has always been done in a courteous and professional manner. The working environment has always made me feel like part of the Linear family.

    Joseph Yankson (Candidate)
  • We've had a working relationship with Linear over the past 10 years. The service we receive is exceptional and the professionalism within the Company is fantastic. We hope to have a continued working relationship for many years to come.
