Who you'll work with

Andy Gregory, Resource Management Specialist at Encore Personnel

“I really enjoy working for Encore for a number of reasons – the variety of work, the support that is given both in-branch and externally and that Encore listens to ideas that I have and will implement. I undertook a day’s work at one of our clients and the money that would’ve been paid out to an employee went directly to charity. It was a great day and gave me a good insight into the way that the client works.”

Aleks Malczewska, Senior Labour Resource Specialist at Encore Personnel

My experience at Encore has so far been incredible. I started Encore without any experience in not only recruitment but full-time employment. Encore has taught me a lot of great things within both a work environment, but also in my personal life. They offer a lot of benefits like Friday drinks, dress down Fridays, free hot drinks, a weekly fruit bowl, and the support of your manager. I was struggling with the hours I was doing therefore my manager has adapted my hours to suit my needs. Encore offers so many courses that you can attend to improve yourself, and for that im forever grateful in them investing so much time in me.”

Kate Preece, Business Development Consultant at Encore Personnel

“I joined Encore with no recruitment experience, but since I started everyone has been so supportive and genuinely interested in my growth and success. I have never worked for a company where the Directors are so involved in training, day-to-day affairs and are so happy to have a conversation and help. The obvious perks of Encore are the Friday drinks, dress down Fridays and the famous end of year Gala, however, I believe the secret of Encore’s success is the sincere care for its employees at all levels, the family environment that spreads throughout all branches.”

Amie Tyler, HR Business Partner at Encore Personnel

“I have been with the Encore family for over five years now and I hope to be here for many more! Benefits such as being eligible for the full external training program have allowed me to develop my role in HR and progress my way up the career ladder. I like working for Encore as they encourage my ideas and help me put them into practice. I have never felt more motivated in a job.”

Nikki Gallier, Company Learning & Development Manager at Encore Personnel

“My journey at Encore started in May 2005 as a temp on a timesheet helping in the office. I quickly realised that recruitment and Encore was for me. During my 14 years here, I have had the fortune of working for managers who have invested their time in coaching and developing my skills which has enabled me to progress through to Company Training and Projects Manager, along with having my own resourcing division. In addition to this, I have attended over twenty external training courses and our internal Management Training Academy. The best part of working for Encore is feeling valued and part of a team with one goal in mind. The culture is very much ‘work hard, play hard’ and is lived and breathed through all. Everyone at Encore is encouraged to make suggestions on how we can work better, and this helps create the feeling of being part of something great. Reward and recognition are a huge part of our staff engagement and retention strategy, including Friday drinks, stretched bonus structures, car allowance, additional holidays, PHI and private pension to name just a few.”
