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.

We apply all legislative requirements in the U.K. and operate in accordance with the E.O.C.'s guidance on Equal Opportunities. Corporate membership of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation means that we abide by the R.E.C.'s Code of Practice, and we operate our systems to BS EN ISO 9001: 2008 standards. Selected Travail branches that currently operate within the Agricultural Industry have the necessary GLA Gang Master licence, and other Branches are able to apply should your business require a licensed supplier of services.



Our Business

We offer two main services to the marketplace: the provision of Temporary Workers, and the introduction of potential Permanent Employees. We operate across a variety of sectors including Clerical, Accounts and Sales, Industrial unskilled labour, Industrial skilled (including "blue collar"), Catering, Driving, Technical, Education, Executive and the professions.


Our Methodology

Travail's Recruitment Consultants undergo extensive in-house training, which means that they offer first class knowledge to their Clients, not only in terms of the local employment marketplace, but also in relation to key areas such as legislation in recruitment.

Our Consultant will visit your premises to take a Vacancy/Person specification, and to get an insight into the personnel needs of your business and environment.

Our unique database of suitable Applicants for your requirements will often be supplemented by the marketing of your vacancy across a variety of media, usually at no additional cost to you.

All Applicants are assessed for competence and personal attributes and, if possible, their skill levels are measured. Their Identity and Right to Work in the U.K. are verified in accordance with UK legislation, together with any available certificates or proof of qualifications. In the case of Temporary Workers, we seek references where available with previous Employers.



Our National Network

Our Branch network stretches the length and breadth of the U.K., which in some instances provides a valuable resource for finding the optimum Worker(s) or Employee(s).


Our Strength

All of our Branches are locally managed. Employers see this reflected in the level of care before, during and after their requirements have been fulfilled.

Our Consultants and Managers are well-trained Recruitment Professionals who not only have recruitment expertise, but also demonstrate diligence, initiative and a thorough understanding of your local employment marketplace.



Typical Client comments about "Travail":

"Travail supplied good quality staff who immediately fitted into our way of working. They supplied staff quickly when we needed someone in a hurry. Always friendly and helpful, no other agency we have used matches the professionalism and friendliness of Travail. Would be my first choice for staff recruitment/temps."
SS - Burgess Hill Employer

"When Travail approached me to do business I realised that they were very different ... (they) are very approachable and listened to what I wanted. They were completely honest and told me how it was. We sat together and looked at the finance side of things and how much I was currently paying and the service which I was receiving; they then quoted on the calibre of staff and the service which they were confident in delivering. This has been a whole new experience of working with an agency for me and I would never go back.
I can 100% say that (they) do exactly what they say they will. They have made every effort to understand our business and learn all about each department, and I believe that this has helped them get it right almost every time.
I look forward to our continued working relationship, and would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Travail Employment Group."
