"Tom approached me with a position after he came across my profile. I couldn’t have been in better hands from the first call till the job offer. Though the application and the interview process lasted slightly longer than expected Tom’s skills were displayed through the excellent communication he put forward and through his presence for any help when needed. I’d like to thank Tom for his support and would definitely recommend him and b3 jobs."
Anatolij, Applications Technologist

"When I applied for a role through b3 jobs I was informed that the role I had applied for had a number of better suited candidates but they had another role that I would be ideally suited to. All the dealings I had with Tom was Professional all working towards me arranging interviews and onsite meetings and within 7 days of first hearing of the opportunity I was offered the role.
It goes to show even in these difficult times that with a professional approach the process can be completed in a short space of time."

David, Skilled Baker
2nd December 2020
"After having finished my Master's degree I began my job search online and quickly found a job promoted by b3, after completing a simple application process I was quite quickly contacted by Tom. Tom helped throughout the job application, interview and contract review stages, contacting me periodically for updates on my behalf, as well as the company I was applying to. Advice was given throughout that helped towards gaining the position and now I have successfully received the position advertised with the help of b3 and Tom."
Conor Anditt, Goods In QA

"Tom helped me a lot. At first, I applied for a position and I did not get it. He found another opportunity for me right away! He always responded fast and called me back to keep me informed about how the application is going. I have been very happy with the services of b3 and I would definitely recommend this agency!"

"I will highly recommend b3 jobs, and especially Recruitment Consultant Tom Shaw for their support and help for finding me a permanent position in these really difficult times. Tom helped me in every moment, in every step of my employment. He is a down-to-earth person whom you can trust and who can find the best position for you. Whatever I'm writing shouldn't be enough to describe my appreciation and gratefulness to Tom and b3 jobs. Without them, I wouldn't manage and have the possibility to find any job till now. One big THANK YOU to the whole team and Tom. Thanks guys and good luck."
21st March 2020
"I had a great experience working with Tom at b3 jobs. He was very helpful, informed me about every step and I got a great job. Thank you"
Technical Assistant, Ingredients Manufacturer
3rd March 2020
"I can't recommend Tom more highly. From the moment I applied through b3 jobs to when I was offered the role, Tom was supportive, efficient, friendly & professional. He checked in with me on the morning of my interview and even contacted my partner to see if he could find a role for her as we were relocating. Thank you Tom, your assistance really made finding a new job less stressful."
6th January 2020
"My experience with b3 jobs was second to none. Etienne acted very professional from start to finish and even when I had to re-negotiate my start date, it was no hassle for her. She was always a phone call away and with a swift response in responding to emails. She has a calm way of putting you at ease when going for an interview and afterwards. I will use b3 jobs again and would recommend."
"I would like to thank you again for all your help, it was very much appreciated and would recommend b3 to others and definitely would use your services again if I ever need to in the future."
"From start to finish, the experience I have had with b3 jobs has been nothing but positive. As a recent graduate, it has been difficult to find suitable jobs but b3 jobs have made it easy to apply and are on hand to give expert advice. Tom has been very supportive and helpful throughout the entire process of me securing my first role in the industry and I couldn't have asked for anything more. He was always willing to give me advice and kept me well informed on any updates and feedback from interviews soon after. I am incredibly grateful for all the help I have received and I would highly recommend b3 jobs for anyone looking for a role in the food industry. Thank you, Tom, for all of your time!"
"The whole process with Tom and b3 was stress free and made simple. The service provided was personal and professional, with all feedback and correspondence bought back to me at speed. The role was matched perfectly to what I was seeking and I never felt pressured into roles which were unsuited to me. I would thoroughly recommend b3 to anyone looking for the next step in their career."
“Having been made redundant and placed on garden leave, I suddenly found myself searching for a new job. Initially I found dealing with recruiting companies very frustrating, especially with the lack of communication and acknowledgement that they had received my application; in some cases I didn’t even know if I was being considered for the role.
Thankfully this wasn’t the case with Tom at b3 jobs who was very professional and kept me informed throughout the whole process of finding my new job. I would definitely recommend contacting Tom at b3 if you are searching for your next role.”
"b3 jobs were so helpful and extremely supportive when it came to finding a career within the food industry. With what is a stressful time when going through the job application procedure, having someone at the end of the phone to recommend positions, help with applications and give general advice makes the process a whole lot easier. Everyone I spoke with there was so friendly and were really easily contactable and I couldn't recommend them enough. Thanks again, b3!
"b3 jobs have been brilliant in helping me take the next step in my career. After enquiring about one role, Emily secured me interviews for three roles and I am really looking forward to starting my new job. They have been very supportive throughout my recruitment journey, and I would highly recommend them."
"I would not hesitate to recommend b3 jobs to anyone looking for a new role within the food manufacturing industry. The service provided was extremely efficient, professional and supportive. The communication was also faultless throughout the recruitment process. I was kept updated and received correspondence exceptionally quickly, both before and following the interview. Thank you Victoria for helping me to secure a fantastic position!
"The staff at b3 are always professional, friendly and helpful. They kept me up to date on what was happening and I would highly recommend their services."
"I was contacted by Emily Snaith within 15 minutes of submitting my application for the role. Emily said she would submit my details to the employer and get back to me as soon as she had set up the interview. This she did and supplied me with clear instructions regarding the date and time, the address details and the name of the person conducting the interview. Post interview Emily has kept me up to date via phone and email."
"It was a pleasure to deal with b3, they are absolutely professional and effective: I applied at 8:30, they booked the interview at 10:30, I signed the contract at 16:45. In my opinion, no more words are needed to describe how they work. I hope to be contacted again by them in my future."
"Consistency is a value I admire in my daily life. b3 jobs is the definition of consistency especially Ryan Marchant who went above and beyond to help me get my new role. He made me feel comfortable with my decision to leave my old role and gave me plenty of advice, before and after the interview. I called him often and he was always available to speak to me and reassure me. Even whilst on holiday he was more than happy to speak to me after my interview. Thank you Ryan for all your help, you are an asset to b3 jobs."
"b3 jobs have been fantastic to work with. They adopt a professional and straightforward approach to recruitment. Tom has been easy to communicate with and epitomises this straightforward and professional approach."
"I just want to say a few words about the b3 team, they are professionals, serious, very kind and most important very helpful when you are looking for a new career. Always I will recommend b3, great job guys!!!!"
“I can only recommend b3 for those looking for work that wants to be treated with respect and without the pressurised nature of other agencies, my interactions with Ryan at b3 have been fantastic, I’m kept up to date on all progress and have been made to feel very much welcomed into the fold, I have every confidence in b3, their working ethics and standards, they work hard and should take every credit, it’s a well done from me”
"I would have no hesitation in recommending b3 when looking for a new position. Within two weeks of applying for a vacancy, I had started the job. Tom was very friendly, helpful and genuine. He was frequently in touch updating me with the progress of my application and was easy to deal with, none of the fake 'best buddy' routine and false promises I have experienced with all the others. His colleagues were equally helpful and pleasant in his absence and I really hope I will be able to find my next position through b3. Keep up the good work!"
"It is gratifying to be in the hands of b3 jobs despite being in a long selection period. Etienne is always behind the email for any doubt and on the phone with a smile. Being supported in this process by her and as this will be my first job in the UK, makes everything easier so I would recommend this company and her 100%."
“As a freelancer, I do value b3 services for putting me in touch with clients whom needs and values meet my skills and personality. I am highly recommending to candidates who love their work and have at heart to provide premium quality services to the clients."
Sophie Soumah - Food Safety, Regulatory and Quality Consultant, Soubalt Ltd.
"Becky at b3 has helped me to find a lovely job that was suitable to the skills and experience that I had in the food industry. She has been amazing right from the start throughout the process. I would highly recommend b3 jobs for anyone looking for an opportunity in the food industry. They will definitely find the best one as they did for me. Thank you so much to Becky and everyone at b3."
"I would just like to say a very big thank you to Becky and the team at b3 jobs. I have worked with many agencies over the past 18 years of my career but I can honestly say that b3 is by far the best. Becky has been very understanding, supportive honest, professional and most importantly personable at all times throughout the recruiting process. Individuals help to make a company and I feel you have a real asset in Becky. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending b3 to family and friends in the future’’
"I cannot thank Emily at b3 enough for helping me find a job that I love. After an unfortunate few months at a company that didn’t suit me, Emily did everything in her power to ensure I found a job that I’d be happy in. She went above and beyond and was always at the end of the phone offering advice and often much-needed words of comfort and encouragement. I am now fortunate enough to be in a role I enjoy within a fantastic company and that is 100% down to Emily and the team at B3. They have genuinely given me the best opportunity I could have asked for and I’ll forever be grateful. I would recommend them to anybody who is looking for a new job or career change, as the experience I had was faultless. Thanks again Emily and the b3 team."
"From beginning to end, Etienne was fully engaging and very supportive. Everything was clear and the role secured was as promised. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Etienne or b3 for their professional yet personal experience they provide."
"Sincere personal thanks to you, for your swift, personal and professional contact at every stage of the process. There is so much bad press about recruitment agencies; so when it's done well it deserves recognition. For yourselves, but more importantly the users of such services as either recruiting for roles and those applying for them. Now I am excited to have the chance to work for a real family run business where I believe efforts will be recognised (and hopefully rewarded) and so close to home too."
Kevin Pritchett, Transport & Logistics Manager
"I would recommend b3 to anyone looking to pursue a career in the food industry. As soon as I registered b3 were extremely helpful and attentive at all stages of my job search. The tips on interviews were of great value and the guidance I received made the process of securing a job much less stressful than I had first imagined. Thank you again b3!"
"Clint has been a very professional recruiter and got me in touch with my current employers. Everything from start to finish was managed in the most fast, clean and professional way. Great and positive motivator with lots of experience in the industry. No doubt he will be able to link any business with the talents they need to move in the right direction!"
"b3 made finding my first job after graduation easy and relatively stress free and you found a great range of companies for me to interview with. It has been a pleasure working with you and I'm sure you'll hear from me again when I am ready to move on job-wise :) "
"b3 is definitely my favourite job agency in my 9 years career in the food industry. I got both my 1st and current dream job through b3. I've always been amazed by their professional approach throughout the whole recruiting process. Suzy has been a critical link between me and the company recently. Without her professional suggestions and information I would not get my dream job offer. Thanks very much indeed and I will definitely recommend b3 to my friends."
Technical Compliance Manager, National Confectionery Chain
"My experience at b3 has been a very happy one. The team have been professional and helpful at every turn and the rate and response of feedback has been instant, helpful and very supportive. Genuine thanks to b3 (Victoria Holyoake) for finding me work, I would recommend b3 to any current job seeker or industry professional looking for a new job or position change within the food manufacturing sector."
"Following my second successful interview at Abergavenny Fine Foods and their job offer, I will grab this opportunity to thank b3 jobs for making it happen. Indeed you hold a reputation for exceptional service in this area, as you managed to utilise my skills and promote myself to the food manufacturing sector as an ideal candidate. Apart from this, you offered to me numerous job opportunities within the UK and I feel really grateful for all of your efforts of trying help me to succeed in all upcoming interviews.I am using this opportunity to express my gratitude to Ms Victoria Holyoake who supported me throughout all this time period. I am thankful for her aspiring guidance and friendly advice during the interviews. I am sincerely grateful to her for sharing her truthful and illuminating views on a number of issues related to the job requirements. Once again many thanks for b3 jobs for helping me find a job within the food manufacturing sector!"
"After my first contact with b3 jobs, I was inclined to act upon their description of a job role and apply for it. I felt from the start that these were people whom I could comfortably deal with as they had an interesting, friendly, and personable approach. Throughout the application process, b3 jobs were always at hand if I needed any advice or information. Emails were promptly replied to, and telephone conversations either returned or transferred immediately to somebody who could help me. I was never left wanting or left with an unanswered issue. I would highly recommend this company above the many others out there, for their professionalism and integrity."
"I am very happy with the service you have provided and I am pleasantly surprised that you matched me so good with my company expectations. That is why it was such a smooth process for all of us. I have enjoyed every moment talking with you by phone, you seem to be a very lovely person. I will of course recommended you to all my friends and companies I know."
"Working with Louis at b3 was a very different recruitment experience. From the start, he was very thorough, asking very in depth and challenging questions, to really get to know me, and the skills I have to offer. Contact was regular, and he was very professional is discussing roles with me. What really stands out for me, was that Louis actually listened to me and did not try and sell me a job that was clearly not what I wanted or was not a fit for me, which, many recruiters have tried to do. Louis really stood out as my 'go-to' recruiter, and I would not hesitate in searching him out in the future if I'm looking for work again - highly recommended."
"Louis carefully considered my level of experience, skillset and needs before providing me with fantastic job opportunities. Thanks to his help, I quickly obtained a dream job role as a New Product Developer straight out of University. I would, and have, recommended Louis to anyone seriously considering a job in the food manufacturing sector."
Robyn Trudgian, Artisan du Chocolat
"Louis is extremely helpful, friendly and pro-active. Within an hour of me contacting b3 Louis had arranged an interview for me which was just 24 hours away. Louis was knowledgeable about the company and fully prepared me for my interviews.I started my role at Senoble foods just two weeks later. A month on I am really happy here and feel that the job and company were described perfectly."
"I recently moved to the UK planning to establish here and improve my professional skills and knowledge. With the help of b3 jobs, I was able to get a job in my field and I feel very grateful for it. b3 jobs is a very competent, reliable and extremely helpful recruitment agency. I must recommend Victoria Holyoake, the most dedicated and kindest Recruitment Consultant I've ever met. Thanks to Victoria and b3 jobs I am closer to fulfilling my professional and personal goals. Thank you very much - even though thank you is not enough to express my gratitude"
João Pedro Unas
"Louis supported me throughout the recruitment process and helped me greatly in securing my new role. He was highly organised, personable and I felt he ensured I was well prepared for each stage of the interview process. Thanks Louis!"
"I highly recommend both Becky and Louis from b3 jobs as professional, extremely competent and trustworthy consultants. I am impressed by their honest, proficient and helpful approach, as well as ability to give encouragement before interview. They acted as a reliable and consistent contact between me and the employer throughout all the recruitment process. Their excellent people skills were outstanding - definitely one of the best consultants that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. I have no concerns in promoting their services to my friends."
"I attended the second interview last Friday, and got the job! I'm so happy I can't explain, really it's been a long time that I have not felt so content. Therefore, of course, I must send a huge thank you to you for all the help you gave me in obtaining this job and putting my life on the career path where I know in my heart I should be."
"Joining b3 jobs ltd was great because they are very supportive and diligent. I was incredibly impressed by Louis' support and assistance throughout the whole application process. He really took time to get to know me and matched my skills and background to the positions that he put me forward for. I want to thank you and the team for your help in finding the ideal position for me. I highly recommend b3 jobs ltd as a reliable and professional recruitment agency."
"Everything is going brilliant for me at Destiny Foods, Karl is a pleasure to work for. Thank you very much for the cup, lovely gesture and thank you very much for the job which you have found for me"
"I very much appreciate all your time and assistance during my job hunt. Thank you again"
"Hi Hannah, Thank you again for all your support finding my new role, I am thrilled. "
"I have been very impressed with the service that I have received from Andrew Wimbs at b3 jobs. Andrew has regularly contacted me about job vacancies and has provided good background information about jobs and companies looking for new people.
Andrew contacted me about a vacancy that I was unaware of, even though it was close to my home. He put my name forward for this job and I was eventually lucky enough to secure the role - so a big thanks for that!.
What I particularly like is that Andrew is always available for a discussion about a job or just a chat. He is always positive, supportive and a good listener. Would recommend him to anyone seeking a new position!"
"Many of them might have said b3 jobs is the best, but I would say it’s different as well. Once you register with them and “like them” on Facebook, they bring the best matching jobs right on to your wall. Not only that, their support, help and concern in every step of the process is amazing. In short it’s not a consultancy, b3 jobs is my friend! Thank you Vicky and the whole b3 jobs team!"
“I just want to thank you again for all of your help with finding a role in the food industry. My experience with yourself has been excellent and I would highly recommend b3 to friends and colleagues looking for roles in the industry.”
“I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of b3 jobs, in particular Vicky Bates, for anyone looking for the next step in their career. Vicky understands that it is not always easy to talk freely about job opportunities during the working day and so is very flexible in this sense, making herself available to talk to outside standard office hours. She also seems to understand the need to be kept up to date with progress and was always very quick to give feedback. Her confident and bubbly nature inspires confidence which gave me a real boost - this is just what you need when you are attending interviews."
“Andrew, I just want to say that you have really turned my life around - I am so happy I can't stop smiling. I haven't seen anyone who cared enough about a candidate to take it further. Thank you so much for your efforts and attentiveness throughout the process and supporting me before and after each interview I have... really chuffed to bits!
“I was made redundant and had been looking for a job for 8 months. Vicky of b3 got me an interview and I was hired before I reached home from my 2nd interview! Vicky prepped me well on the understanding of the company, the role and the people that will be interviewing me.”
“b3 made getting my new job as easy as it could possibly be, they sorted everything, appointments, interview tips and preparation and most importantly they found the right role for me based on my experience and qualifications. Thank You b3!”
“Becky, just a short message to thank you for being such a supportive and capable recruitment consultant during what was a tough year for me. I have finalised everything and will be starting my new Technical Manager role on Monday. I am very excited about it, needless to say. Hopefully, in the future we can still work together, but with me on the client, not candidate side :). Enjoy the festive season and have a good start into the New Year. Many thanks & best wishes.”
“b3 jobs is definitely the best recruitment agency I've dealt with. They provided the most efficient, friendly and helpful service than all agencies I've used before. I secured position in my new company just after a week since sending my CV. If I find myself in similar situation again b3 jobs will be first place I'll go.”
“One of the reasons I liked b3 jobs is because they are honest and accurate when advertising their roles. The job I applied for was available and advertised at the correct salary (other experiences I have had with agencies is that once you apply for a position the role does not exist, is completely different to the description or is not paying the salary you originally thought!). Vicky was also lovely to deal with and very helpful.!”
“I am very thankful to b3, especially Vicky and Becky, for all your hard work and efficient service. You have been able to secure me a position in the past and I am very grateful for that. I have to say that from all the others recruitment agencies I have been approached by, you are the one very professional and reliable. You always try your best in updating you on your application and there is always feedback from the company very quickly. I will not hesitate to recommend b3 to anyone wishing to find they dream job. Very good recruitment agency!”
“I have found b3 jobs ltd to be a first class recruitment agency, with the outstanding service I received from recruitment consultant, Vicky Bates. Vicky demonstrated real professionalism in her job as a recruiter. She showed a very high level of competence throughout the whole process of guiding me for the acquisition of my current job while taking each and every detail into consideration. I would highly recommend Vicky for recruiting anyone in the food manufacturing division and many thanks to her for her great service.”
"b3 really gave me the support I needed to go for key positions with confidence. They do a fantastic job in pointing out opportunities in a difficult job market. ."
"I feel lucky and grateful to have my CV handled by b3 in job application. I want to point out their high sense of responsibility, professional politeness and being thoughtful truly for the benefit of their clients. It is never easy to look for a new job, but with b3 aside, a lot of problems will be just resolved themselves. My impression of b3 is simply wonderful and useful."
“When searching for a placement I have always found b3 jobs to be my first port of call. Becky Gander has delivered consistent results for me, with excellent communication throughout the entire process. I can’t thank Becky enough and I would highly recommend anyone to contact Becky and register with b3 for a service that is second to none.”
“I would recommend b3 jobs to anyone actively looking for work in the sectors they cover. I have personally used b3 jobs twice and found them on both occasions to be supportive, professional, helpful. They fully guided and advised me through the whole stage from actively searching and explaining in detail the role, highlighting pointers for the interview stage right through to genuinely being happy for you when the time comes to offer you employment. A big thank you to you all, I would not hesitate about using and recommending the company. ”
"Firstly I would like to say a massive thank you for taking the time to contact me even though my CV had been on your files for some time. When I asked you to really try to get me an interview for the position you did and as a result of this I have secured an excellent new job! I would like to congratulate you on your professional approach and for coming back to me and keeping me updated when you said you would throughout the whole procedure. "
"I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with my job search. You were really helpful in every way possible. Coming out of university with the daunting task of securing a job was a big step. My decision to sign on to your agency proved to be a good choice. There were many other agencies that did not provide anywhere near the high standard of guidance as Andrew and the team. Not only did they help with securing interviews with companies, there was also support when it came to the more in-depth second interview stages. This proved to be of real use for myself, as it provided guidance for the presentation that was required. Andrew always ensured to keep in touch with every bit of information no matter how big or small. Overall, I have had a very positive experience with b3 and would most definitely recommend to other graduates or anyone searching for jobs."
"I found working with b3 really enjoyable. Finding a new job can be stressful and traumatic at the best of times. Sarah made this process easy and enjoyable. She really took the time to find out about me, what I wanted in terms of a new role and also what made me tick as a person. All the roles she sent through to me matched what I had told her, she even sent a few through that I thought would not be suitable for me but were really interesting roles. She took the time to speak to me outside of work hours and really went the extra mile in order to help me find that perfect job - which she did. I would not hesitate at all in recommending Sarah or b3 to any friends or colleagues in the future."
“I want to thank you for all your hard work and effort. All of you at b3 have been so helpful and professional. You have found me a good job with a great company and it felt right from the start. Thanks again.”
“A very big thank you to everyone at b3 - especially Becky. She has been a great help to me in finding a job. I never thought I would get myself a job but with the help of Becky, I did so in less than two weeks! I am very grateful for everything that she has done for me, such a good help! I really appreciate b3 and would highly recommend the company to all my friends or anyone looking for a job in the food industry.”
“b3 were a totally professional recruitment agency to work with when I was looking for a new job. I found their response time excellent; someone had contacted me within 24 hours of my initial enquiry. They totally understood that it was difficult for me to talk while at work and never called within work hours, they would just send an e-mail with the information requesting that I called them. Stephen Bunch who dealt with my quest for a new job was exceptionally good, as he always got back to me regarding any queries even if it was outside working hours. If he was out of the office he would have briefed colleagues on where we were so that when I called in there was always someone I could talk to. He also took what I had told him on board about the type of job I was looking for and had it at the fore front of his mind when suggesting potential positions. If in the future I want to look for another job, b3 would be the first agency that I speak to, and I would definitely recommend the company to friends because of the truly professional and friendly service I received from Stephen and his colleagues. ”
“Andrew, I wanted to thank both you and Graham for your help, patience and advice in my search for a new career. You have been stars! I also hope that I have a long and successful career and hope (in the nicest possible way) that I won’t be needing to call you for a very long time!! ”
