"We have been dealing with Octopus for a number of years to fulfill our staff requirements, especially during our busy season between March and May. They always deliver what we need and the staff in the office are extremely friendly and helpful whenever we need something extra."



"Sandra, I wish to express my thanks to you and your staff for all your support and assistance over the years. You have fantastic business ethics, with friendly yet highly professional staff who always source high calibre employees when needed and always so swiftly too. This can only be achieved from the time you take to listen to the needs of your Client and meeting that need. If more people approached business in this way, the world would be a far better place. Keep up the great work that you and the team achieve and THANK YOU again, it is always very much appreciated"



I am vehemently against recruitment agencies as a rule and have had only bad experiences. However, Octopus have proven to be an exception. Sandra listens to what the role will entail and hand picks candidates for the role. You can decide you need people on Monday and be interviewing by Tuesday without having to wade through the ‘wrong’ CVs. Octopus has provided administrative staff, assembly workers and specialist professionals – there seems to be no end to their resource. They are always friendly and helpful If you have lost all faith in recruitment agencies like I had, you’ll love working with Octopus.



"To Sandra & everyone at Octopus Personnel. Thank you so much for my lovely flowers! Also a huge thank you for all your support over the years. I always felt confident that the office and lads would be in good hands when I would go on holiday as the temps have been so good! Rachel is a life saver and Chloe will be a star! Thanks and I hope to stay in touch! Hannah"



Dear Marsha I'd just like to say a big thank you for supplying us with Nick for the last three weeks. He has a great attitude and he really worked hard while he was here. If ever you need a reference then please let me know. Best wishes

“Hi Ryan We needed some extra help for a job in Yeovil at short notice. Our requirements were that the person was prepared to work hard, able to climb a ladder, capable to use a variety of tools and able to work with minimal supervision. After a simple telephone call, you were able to assure me that you already had a person in mind and that if he was unavailable you had another suitable person. You quickly came back to us confirming you could supply the person you had in mind and at a very reasonable cost. The person you supplied was better than you had claimed, he was able to fulfil all the tasks given to him to a very high standard – we were all impressed. We will be using your services again and will recommend you without hesitation. Thank You Ryan Kind Regards Steve Williams”

We have been using Octopus Personnel for over 5 years now and without fail they have provided staff on two different levels 1. The majority of our needs due to the nature of our business are for manual staff to assist in production, processing mail. Octopus get very little notice in fact we call on them at 6pm in the evening for up to 20 staff needed for 7am the following morning. They have never failed us. In fact they check in the morning to make sure all have attended. 2. Administration is easy with Octopus as this is a core part of their business. 3. Recruiting staff to meet a very specific need, we needed a very specialist Data Analyst – which Octopus found, actually exceeding our expectations. Octopus also supplies Administrative staff at short notice to cover sickness and holidays on a short term basis. We would have no reservation in recommending the team at Octopus as it does not rely on just one person, anyone there can fulfil our needs more than satisfactorily.

We can, unreservedly, recommend Octopus Personnel . Octopus Personnel recently located two excellent candidates for our consideration, initially for a temporary part-time situation but, three months on, the selected candidate has become a permanent member of our staff. Throughout our involvement with Octopus Personnel they have provided a highly professional service, have given us time and consideration and showed particular talent and sensitivity when selecting candidates most suited to the position. We wish them the best of luck for the future.

Hi Jane, I just wanted to say thank-you for helping us out with a temp at such short notice. Her work was to an excellent standard and we were very impressed with her. She was so good in fact, that our regular staff were asking her advice on issues they had! The staff you have supplied to us have always proved to be very capable this candidate was certainly the most impressive temporary staff member we have employed here. Many thanks once again.
