"As we are all aware, good trades personal are hard to fine. Tecside do their upmost to fill our needs at the time required, and the manager is often on site visiting to offer additional value."

Ian O'Brien

Klondu Group

"This is now the second employer I have utilised Tecside for recruitment and labour services. Predominantly at my previous employer (Concept Engineering Services) I utilised Kristie Kent after an introduction by Daniel. I found both extremely professional and supportive of myself in providing labour to my customers. When I commenced with Programmed (Nov 2020) both Daniel and Kristie were extremely supportive in the early stages to help myself not only gain a better understanding of the services they can provide to my business they also gave a good understanding of how they perceive my business. Corrine is now providing regular updates on labour to support my team. It's an absolute pleasure dealing with Tecside and they have a very good read on what I expect for a service level."

"Since forming a strong business relationship with my Tecside contact I am very reluctant to use any other agency; he has gone beyond expectation to understand what our needs are, can be trusted to be honest and open about availability and suitability, and has managed to deliver teams of people at very short notice."
