Recruitment and Employment cinfederation In operation since 1977, our reputation for excellence has come from providing Companies and Individuals with an outstanding recruitment service to suit their every need.

You will find us to be good listeners, helpful, and impartial. When you register with us, we will need your assistance to help you -
and our friendly staff will guide you through the process.

Our services to you

We offer you two main services - both of them are FREE of CHARGE to you:
Travail's Permanent Employment service, where we introduce you to potential Employers and secure interviews for you. Then there's our Temporary Work service, where we place you into a work assignment quickly, so that you continue to earn money, perhaps whilst attending interviews for permanent positions.

Our Permanent Employment Service

We will listen closely to your job expectations, and explore with you what your experience and qualifications might allow you to consider doing in your next career move. We will suggest potential local Employers or specific jobs that we feel might be of interest to you. Only when you have agreed with our selection will we begin to market your details to local Employers.

Please note that we respect the need for confidentiality at all times, and will only reveal your identity to a potential Employer with your permission.

At all stages of the recruitment process, you will be kept fully informed. Before you attend any interviews, we will give you an in-depth brief about the Company and the job role, and we will give you some useful hints and tips on interview techniques, and likely questions that may come your way. You will also receive other useful information, such as H & S Risk Assessments (where applicable) in connection with the job.

Following interview(s), you will be given direct and open feedback on your performance. We will also ask you how you felt your interview went, and seek clarification for you on any questions you might still have. Very often the Employer will ask us to enquire with you if an intended offer of employment would be accepted, and when you could join their organisation.

When you are ready to accept an offer of employment, we will give your new employer your personal details so a formal written offer can be made. Once you have started your new job, we will check that you are happy and have received the level of service from us that we want all Applicants to experience.

Permanent Employment service: Summary

  • Assistance with your Application Form and/or C.V.
  • We search the job market so you don't have to
  • Full job specification and Company information
  • Access jobs not otherwise advertised
  • Advice on Interview technique and question-handling
  • Instant feedback on applications and interviews
  • Free refresher and cross-training on many software packages

  • Our Temporary Work service

    Again, we listen closely to what you are able and willing to do to keep the money coming-in. We will discuss all appropriate Assignments with you. When you have chosen the Assignment that you would like to undertake, we will explain in depth the requirements of the work, and give you all essential information (including, where applicable, H & S advice). We will then explain where, when and to whom you should report for your work Assignment.

    Ideally, you will be able to give us your P45 so that we can calculate the tax deducted on your earnings to your best advantage. Don't worry if you don't have one - we can advise you of the options to avoid Basic Rate Tax being applied to your pay (we're on your side!).

    We will be paying you weekly, and ideally directly into your Bank or Building Society Account (funds are normally cleared via the BACS system by Friday). You'll need to give us your Bank details for this purpose.

    During your work assignment, we will keep in touch with you to appraise you of other job opportunities, Temporary or Permanent, which we feel are appropriate and would be of interest to you. Some of our Temporary assignments lead to permanent job offers.

  • Choose when and where you work
  • Continue to earn whilst searching for Permanent Work

  • Testimonials from previous Applicants:

    "I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the service provided by you. Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level that far exceeds other recruitment agencies I have dealt with. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble to you and I am made to feel unique, never feeling that I am just one of many clients that you and your office probably have to deal with each day. I have no hesitation in giving... my wholehearted and thorough recommendation (for) what is a breath of fresh air in the recruitment industry in this area... Long may you continue to set standards for others to follow."
    SH, Mansfield

    "Shortly after moving I registered with a number of Agencies, including Travail. Within a few weeks Travail offered me my first position, since then I have had placements in a wide variety of businesses for short and longer terms, which really suits me. Apart from being very professional, I consider the staff to be my friends and i would recommend Travail without hesitation."
    CC, Gloucester

    "Excellent! I have also used (other Agencies named) - they are not a patch on Travail. Staff at Travail are friendly, professional and very helpful..... listened to and understood my requirements and ultimately found me an outstanding opportunity for a brilliant company."
    KH - Trowbridge

    "Just a little note to thank all at Travail very much for your hard work and support with regards to finding people like me temporary work. I have had bad experiences with Agencies, it was a refreshing change to receive phone calls saying, "We have a job for you!". Every member of staff at Travail has demonstrated dedication and utmost professionalism. For me, Travail have always been the best Agency with the best work and people."
    SL - Loughborough

    "I have been extremely impressed with every aspect of my Travail experience. I was contacted promptly after applying for a job online, I was put forward for another role which was a good match to my skills/experience and this resulted in a temp to perm role. I wish I had approached this agency sooner!"
    AS - Burgess Hill

    "Travail Employment Group has, on a number of occasions, found me regular contracts on a temporary basis. I have found Travail to be honest and their communication levels were of key importance to me when working with an agency. I was informed accurately of the assignment by way of face to face interview and a written copy to take away with directions attached. In respect of payment I have always found they pay on time and have never had an issue with payroll. I am pleased that I am working with them and as a local agency I would gladly recommend their services to any other candidates."
    PO - Grantham

    "After spending several months unemployed, it quickly became apparent how much the jobs market had changed over the years. On-line applications, CV's and searches were now the primary tools for finding work. The whole process was cold, uncommunicative, demoralising and very frustrating. Then I contacted Travail. I was invited into their office, met the team, talked through my CV and possible options. I was put forward for interview and afterwards Travail got my thoughts and feeling for the position, a second interview was arranged which led to a job offer. Travail were very professional, communicative and with real empathy, I felt as though someone had taken time and made effort to help me secure work. Thank you, Travail."
    GP - Newport

    "The best agency I have dealt with and I have dealt with a lot over the past 8 years. Each time I have come back to you for work, you have been very helpful, finding me work very quickly. Friendly and professional service, I do recommend you to others when I hear they are looking for work!"
    CR - Trowbridge

    "I would like to say how impressed I have been with the professionalism and friendly approach that Travail have provided. I have felt that Travail have excelled in matching my skill set and have understood and supported my needs throughout the process. I would not think twice to recommend Travail to anyone seeking a new career."
    AL - Wellingborough

    "Much more personal - seem to be interested in putting people in the right jobs. Always been much more reliable and trustworthy than some other Agencies."
    DG - Trowbridge

    "I have worked through Travail Employment Group for the last 3 months, and during this time I have found them to be extremely kind and caring. If it wasn't for them I would still be hunting around and getting nowhere. They helped with my CV and resolved all my problems regarding getting back into the workforce. I was a little confused at first with timesheets, but they helped me and each week without fail my salary pops into my Bank like magic. As far as I am concerned and without a shadow of a doubt, I would recommend Travail to anybody looking to get back into the workforce or looking to change jobs - overall Travail for me are tops."
    DB - Newport

    "My experience has been very pleasant and I am impressed with (Travail's) level of service. The staff are friendly, professional and always willing to help out whenever they can. After reviewing my needs they were able to link me to the perfect role, and I have since become a permanent member of the team and progressed to a supervisory role. I would highly recommend them and will certainly be using them again if I have needs in the future."
    NJ - Cheltenham

    "The staff at Travail are very friendly and communicative, and worked very hard trying to find me the best job. I should have gone to Travail years ago, as I've finally got the job that I want. Thank-you!"
    AB - Burgess Hill

    "I found your agency very helpful and you were able to find me work quickly."
    JN - Trowbridge

    "During my time with Travail they have achieved several firsts. I've come to enjoy working with them, which I never thought I would be able to say about an agency, and I've yet to receive an error in my wages. I do enjoy a variety of work over several different sectors, and the information passed on means I've not once gone into a job blind. If circumstances mean I would possibly return to Grantham in the future, and I needed work, Travail would be without a doubt, a great place to start - and this is what I say to others in the same situation."
    MP- Grantham

    "Travail have been very efficient. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and they call regularly to check if things are okay. My salary is paid into the Bank on time and without problems."

    AS - Trowbridge

    SJ - Cheltenham

    "Much more consistent contact-other agencies may only contact you every 4 months or more. The staff at Travail helped me find a temporary position which led to a permanent post in the end and have always been very supportive and helpful."
    LR - Trowbridge

    "I have found Travail from the first point of contact very professional. The staff are very friendly and helpful and constantly gave me feedback about the job I was applying for. I would definitely use them again should I need to look for work in the future."
    SG - Bristol

    "Travail staff are friendly and professional; very personable and helpful.... interested in you as a person, not just a worker/temp, taking in the skills and talents that one can offer and trying hard to find a "niche" that suits the employer and the employee."
