Production Director


I wanted to thank Acorn and the Yeovil team for all the hard work which goes into finding the right candidates for our demanding requirements.  Acorn has fulfilled our '"temp to perm" and "short term temp" requirements for many years. But I feel it is important to give your Yeovil team praise and thanks for the hard work and professionalism in always helping us fulfil our staffing requirements.  The Yeovil branch has built a strong and capable team of recruiters, all of whom seem to be able to take up any immediate requirements we may have. This team understands our business, always submitting suitable candidates - this is so important getting it right every time, saving us so much valuable time. Our industry is not always easy and our situations / workloads can and do suddenly change, requiring temporary staff at short notice. Knowing the Yeovil team is only a phone call or e-mail away helps us to fulfil our needs and enables us to operate a first class service to all of our customers. I would like to give my sincere thanks to all the team at Acorn's Yeovil branch. 

Director, Koller Engineering Ltd


We have dealt with Acorn Recruitment for the last two years for all our staffing requirements. We have always recieved a very professional service and our staffing needs have always been dealt with effectively and efficiently. One of your Consultants has successfully placed several permanent members of staff with us within the last six months and has remarkable intuition for choosing individuals that fit into our company ethos. We also have several temporay members of staff working for us as and when we require them. Sometimes we have needed these individuals to start immediately due to exceptionally high order demands for our products. Acorn has always managed to source staff with relevant experience especially within our engineering environment. 

UK Operations Manager, SPC International


I have to admit when I received a call from Acorn's Business Development Manager asking to pitch to SPC I did have a feeling of here we go again another agency that promises the world and delivers nothing. In reality the experience has been absolutely exceptional, I have to pass on excellent feedback from myself relating to the Yeovil office. I have been working with agencies for the past four years and nothing comes even to close to your team. Staff availability has been excellent and candidates well specified to meet our requirements. There is absolutely no doubt that the team is doing a great job for us.

Acorn Recruitment has always been efficient and proactive in understanding our business needs and we are confident we can call on them at any time, to fulfil our temporary recruitment requirements. The quality of candidates provided to us is always excellent and the consultant provides helpful and reliable management of our account. Acorn Recruitment is one of our preferred suppliers on the W C Rowe site at Bickland industrial estate in Falmouth. The consultant we deal with has readily supplied various skills on site at short notice including CSCS labourers, carpenters, painters, plant ops, electricians, pipe fitters and Acorn also supply a temporary administrator in our Plymouth head office. I would have no hesitation in recommending using Acorn for any recruitment needs you may have.

We have used the Acorn Group for the recruitment of our temporary site staff on numerous occasions. We have always found them to offer an excellent service in both the standard of recruitment and their efficient administrative procedures. We do not hesitate in providing a positive reference to a third party who may be considering in using the Acorn Group in the future.

All the staff provided to us by Acorn were great!

Acting Manager


Acorn needed to be responsive to the needs of the section which changed in accordance with the flow of post from examiners across the world. The quality of the staff supplied was very high, and we encountered very few problems. Our requests were always understood and met with a ‘can do’ attitude at all times. The staff were friendly, positive, organised and efficient in dealing with all our queries and requests for help. We also had a lot of positive feedback from the temporary staff supplied about their dealings with Acorn.
