I approached XCL as we had an immediate need to upscale our production team, across multiple production sites within the UK.

The consistent effort made on their part to understand our needs and to communicate well led to effective worker placements; right person, right position.

The quality of service that Jodie and Karl delivered is what set the XCL Group apart from other providers, I am happy to endorse this team.

After receiving a phone call from Jodie, who found my CV online, I have now managed to get myself a new job role, that I am very happy with and is a lot more suited for myself.

Jodie has been very professional throughout and has kept me up to date with all the processes, as well as checking in with me after my first few days to see how I’ve settled in. I couldn’t recommend her anymore and the group’s services.

Thank you!

The team at XCL provided a wonderful service throughout all communications and correspondence, a friendly and professional service. All dialogue has been clear and concise with timely contact keeping me updated with all progressions in relation to the position.

Pre interview advice and discussion helped ease any nerves that I had and put me in a more confident footing and better prepared of what to anticipate at interview stage.

I would highly recommend your service to family and friends on the back of my consultant's hard work and constant dedication. It has been an absolute pleasure.

I would like to say that working with XCL has been a breath of fresh air, I have worked with a considerable amount of recruitment agencies during 27 years of factory management and none have showed the same commitment as XCL.

I would like to say that working with XCL has been a breath of fresh air, I have worked with a considerable amount of recruitment agencies during 27 years of factory management and none have showed the same commitment as XCL.

The interview process that XCL do with prospective employees would seem to be a lot better than other agencies as the turnaround of staff is in comparison much less. XCL also go the extra mile to fulfil the required roles and seem to work tirelessly to find the right people for those roles.

I have been extremely impressed with the ideas that Rebecca and Chloe have in finding people to fill roles where others have failed, especially with them both attending site regularly to register and interview prospective employees. which then enables us to interview a lot quicker.

We currently have about 5 agencies on the look out for staff and at the moment the first phone call is to XCL as we know they will endeavour to work hard to find the right candidate and most of the time they do.

I have worked with the same agency for the last 15 years and have always given them priority on supplying staff, Rebecca and Chloe have impressed me so much that I always speak to XCL first.

We have worked with XCL Management for over a year now and we will be continuing to work with them. The team always listen to our requirements for both permanent and temporary staff and take time to visit our office to fully understand the role and type of person to fit into our small team.

We have recruited a few excellent members of staff with thanks to XCL only recommending suitable candidates, hence saving me time in my busy role interviewing many applicants. I can highly recommend them.

HR Manager

I am happy to recommend the recruitment service offered by XCL Management. I have recently used the companies’ services and found staff to be extremely attentive and efficient. They were extremely knowledgeable and approachable at all times and continue to use their services.

Searching for a new job is never an enviable task and having dealt with recruitment agents in the past it can be somewhat overwhelming trying to find the right role and more importantly the right company.

My consultant approached me shortly after posting my CV online, I found her to be positive and enthusiastic without being overbearing. She organised the interview around my hectic schedule, kept in constant contact regarding the role, delivering feedback whilst generally assessing my suitability for the role for myself and also her client, which I think is important for long term prospects for both parties.

I can't recommend XCL highly enough, although I have no intention to look for a career move in the future I wouldn't hesitate to get back in contact should the need arise.

At long last, I have found with XCL, a Recruitment Agency that manages to send over ideal candidates.

Amy is professional and polite and always produces the perfect applicants out of nowhere which other agencies don’t seem to be able to do.

Whilst building a good working relationship with us, she takes time to understand and listen to what we require for each role and because of this XCL have managed to place several candidates with us over the last couple of months.

We first started working with XCL back in December 2021.  Initially we needed additional temporary staff and XCL were able to supply a fully vetted labour force that meet our short-term requirements.  We then looked to employ several permanent staff within our specialised manufacturing environment, and again, XCL were able to supply candidates that were fully vetted and specifically meet the needs of the business and our working ethos.

Based on the quality of candidates and the professionalism of the team at XCL, we then looked to appoint XCL in the recruitment of new Production Manager, which was a new critical role within the business, and again the vetting and evaluation of the candidates was excellent. It is clear that XCL fully understood our business and the calibre of the people we look to employ.

Going forward, we will continue to utilise XCL for all our recruitment needs, whether that be for temporary or permanent positions, as we see XCL to be our long-term recruitment partner.

I was seeking work through my e-mail alerts and I called XCL Group and spoke to Luke Bradbury at first instance and he was extremely patient and very helpful, he didn't rush me and managed to get me a role to start within 6 hours.

Even when Luke was unavailable to get hold of I spoke to other staff members who were very informative and communicated well amongst themselves and delivered excellent service.
I'd recently left to join another Company but things didn't work out and I contacted XCL and spoke to Luke again and within a matter of 2 hours Luke came up with several options to get back me into employment . I have never come across any recruitment agency who has been so caring and demonstrated the willingness and determination to help and assist without fail.
Luke and the entire team at XCL is absolutely phenomenal in every aspect all the way in their work ethics.


I sincerely recommend anyone out there seeking employment to contact XCL Group and as far as I am concerned is the best Agency in my opinion.
