Hitchen Foods - Wigan - April 2010
Hitchen Foods is part of the Bakkavor Group, based in Wigan. They specialise in the production of mash and fresh veg for supermarkets.
Leanne has been working with Hitchen Foods since September 2009, placing contract staff within the company, including Electrical and Mechanical Maintenance Engineers, Electricians and Mechanical fitters. In addition, there are currently two long-term contractors also on site to assist with on-going project requirements.
Leanne had 13 engineers on site in November 2009; these contractors were required as part of the Factory’s £6 million pound expansion project. Leanne offered a quick turn around on vacancies, filling the bookings on the same day, within just 2 hours.
Leanne has conducted 3 site visits to meet with the site’s Divisional Managers and ensure all contractors have been happy within the environment and contributing well to the company and their projects. Leanne maintains regular contact on all shifts; nights, days and weekends.
Due to this excellent service level, Jenrick Engineering is the sole agency Hitchen Foods use on site.
“To whom it may concern,
Leanne provides an excellent, first class service, I cannot fault her.
Jenrick Engineering is on my PSL and we use them throughout the business for all engineering recruitment.
We have recruited a number of contractors recently to support our factory extension project and have also recruited permanent positions.
I receive a good level of CV’s from Leanne, both in terms of quality and quantity.
Leanne even managed to get 4 men on site for me within 2 hours of me calling her.
We do not use anyone else for Engineering recruitment.
I really cannot fault her.”
