Hitchen Foods are part of the Bakkavor Group. We manufacture own label chilled ready meals and produce based products for a number of the leading retailers. We have worked in Partnership with PMP Recruitment since June 2009 and during this time they have significantly grown their business with us through demonstrating the value they can add. Importantly PMP have demonstrated their professionalism and commitment at managing the account with us as a client and their strong values towards their employees.
Due to the volatility of our business we require a reliable agency provider to understand our needs and work with us to provide the right solutions at all times. PMP do this very well and provide exceptional on-site account management support to ensure they deliver what is required to the highest standard possible.
PMP induct all workers on their first day; they report on KPI's ensuring we have full visibility and all workers are assessed on a monthly basis to ensure that the workers provided meet the required standards.
Typically PMP will provide about 220 workers per week and since June 2009 Hitchen Foods has employed around 270 people through PMP, which provides us with reliable and good calibre employees.
Most recently we have been working closely with PMP to ensure we are best placed to effectively implement the requirements of the Agency Workers Regulations and they have once again demonstrated the support and value they can add.
I would have no hesitation in recommending PMP Recruitment as a first class supplier of agency staff.
For and on behalf of
Hitchen Foods (Bakkavor Group)
