Chief Executive Officer, Swim Wales


The Acorn Executive Search recruitment team worked directly with me as CEO on our recent board member recruitment process. The team engaged with us over several weeks to identify and shortlist several qualified Non-Executives for the Swim Wales Board of Directors. This involved the vetting over 100+ senior business people in which we shortlisted 9 very qualified individuals, resulting in our organisation taking on 8 new Non-Executives against an original target of 3. I speak for both the Chairman and the rest of the board when I say how impressed we were with Acorn's ability to take a client brief and truly deliver on it. The work ethic from the team at Acorn was first class, friendly and superlative customer service makes them an excellent partner for any team or recruitment drive. Acorn has my highest recommendation for any recruitment initiative, and simply stands out from many of the competition in a busy market.

Operations Manager, Key Food Ingredients


Acorn is without a doubt the best employment agency I work with. You all act in a professional manner, have the right attitude, know and understand our company needs and above all have a great sense of humour! Acorn is my agency of choice first time every time.

Branch Manager, Europa Worldwide


Acorn’s Widnes branch was great at listening and understanding about the calibre of candidate we were looking for. It was just as important for us to recruit someone with the right personality, mind-set and outlook to join our team as well as the relevant skills and experience required for the role.



"As a company Venture Packaging would like to pass on our compliments to Acorn, your Widnes branch and to the staff you supplied to us on doing an excellent job, they all performed exceptionally well. Furthermore, as a note of our appreciation, I can assure you that we will endeavour to use ACORN for all our staffing needs going forward.”

Managing Director, Phoenix Legal Services


I have previously been reluctant to engage with recruitment agencies. My view has generally been that they knock together a cv and then just pass that out to prospective employers with little or no follow up.  I was introduced to Acorn's Legal Recruitment team through a networking event at a time when I had recently secured a major new client and needed to expand my workforce.   Acorn's Legal Recruitment team have been instrumental in changing my view of the benefit of working with a recruitment agency as they have taken the time to get under the skin of my business and understand what my needs are. They have worked hard to source prospective candidates and are prepared to think outside of the box. There is much work to do on this project and I am confident of Acorn's abilities in helping me to achieve success.  Acorn's Legal Recruitment team are a credit to Acorn as they invest the time needed to understand why they are searching for the people I need.

Yard Supervisor


At BCA Henstridge we use Agency Workers to fulfil our daily staffing requirements and several months ago we approach Acorn's Yeovil Branch to see how they could help us. From the offset, the professionalism and knowledge of Acorn staff was impressive and we were confident that Acorn would be a good fit for our business.  Within days of working with Acorn, we were supplied with several staff, the quality of which met our expectations. Acorn also recently fulfilled a position in our Transport Department and the new employee is very impressive and perfect for the role. Of course, there will always be issues in the working environment. However, Acorn has always been available by telephone and are great at resolving any problems. Rhiannon and the Yeovil Branch regularly keep in contact with us and visit our site to ensure we are happy and that everything is running smoothly. I would like to thank Acorn and Rhiannon for the excellent service they have provided us to-date and we're looking forward to continuing a long working relationship. 

Production Director, Perrys Recycling


I wanted to thank Becky and her 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 you and your team praise and thanks for the hard work and professionalism in always helping us fulfill our staffing requirements. It has not gone unnoticed, since you started running the Yeovil branch, the level of service has definitely exceeded our expectations. You have built a strong and capable team of recruiters around you, all of whom seem to be able to take up any immediate requirements we may have. They understand our business, always submitting suitable candidates this is so important getting it right every time saving us so much valuable time.Ours is not always an easy industry as situations / workloads can, and do, suddenly change, requiring temporary staff at short notice. Knowing you and your efficient team are only a phone call or email away helping us fulfill our needs enables us to operate a first class service to our customers.

Director, Koller Engineering Ltd


We have dealt with Becky at Acorn Recruitment for the last two years for all of our staff requirements.  We have always received a very professional service and our staffing needs have always been dealt with efficiently and effectively. Becky 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 temporary 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 within our Engineering environment.

UK Operations Manager, SPC International


I have to admit when I received a call from Stephen asking to pitch Acorn to SPC, I did have a feeling of "here we go again another agency that promises the world and deliveries 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 4 years and nothing comes even to close to Acorn. Staff availability has been excellent and candidates well specified to meet our requirements. There is absolutely no doubt that Becky and the team are doing a great job for us.

Senior Internal Sales Coordinator, Rotamec


The team at Acorn Recruitment have been a great help in supplying staff to date, and we will most certainly be using your services again.
