“Historically as a company, we have always limited the use of recruitment agencies. We decided to work with b3 almost a year ago as we needed to recruit for a specific role in new product development and were struggling organically to find suitable candidates. In less than 1 year, b3 have helped us to fulfil an additional five key job vacancies with exceptional candidates in our food manufacturing business. Their professional and efficient management and experience of recruitment in the food industry is extremely impressive, and have always presented a strong calibre of candidates for the job vacancy in question in a fast turnaround. I look forward to working with b3 in the future as our preferred partner recruitment agency.”
