Myself and two of our managers attended an Open Day which Inspire 2 Independence (i2i) had organised. The day was really beneficial; initially we were given an overview of how the company operate. We recruited five people on the day to join our team who were suited to the vacancies which we had at the time. I would highly recommend i2i and would have no hesitation in asking for their support in the future.

I wish to thank you for the service you have provided me so far, and on such short notice. I am glad you were able to visit Manchester Central Park and see what opportunities our hotel can bring to the local community. I did enjoy the open day that was presented at your offices and it is encouraging to know that the hospitality industry is being viewed as an important employer, and more is being done to ensure that the industry is supplied with staff who have a better understanding of the hospitality trade and are being trained to service its needs. I look forward to working with the Inspire 2 Independence (i2i) team in the future and, with i2i on our side, I am sure that our partnership will be prosperous to all parties.
Richard Neisius (Operations Manager) - Holiday Inn - Manchester Central Park
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Inspire 2 Independence (i2i) for the service the i2i Oldham Centre has provided. As a recently established company, Better Dreams won an enormous order which necessitated the urgent need for warehouse and production staff. The 5 members of staff who came on board have become valued members of our team and has highlighted what a great service i2i provides. As a result, we keep in regular contact and, as our business expands, we will be calling i2i for further vetted staff. I should like to express my thanks to i2i for all their help and advice at a time when I needed to concentrate on my manufacturing processes rather than recruitment.

Here at Pearl Windows performance and quality are of the highest priority, Inspire 2 Independence (i2i) are my first point of contact when I need good quality pre screened staff. i2i are well organised and have saved me hundreds of hours in my recruitment process, which has benefited this company tremendously because in our industry customer satisfaction is paramount, thanks to i2i they have always provided the right people at the right time to deliver this service. I was very reluctant to change my recruitment process however i2i have been fantastic and they are now my 1st point of contact when I need new staff. Since using i2i as our main recruitment compnay we have been very satisfied with the service we have received, we would highly recommend i2i as a recruitment service.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the service you have provided. I have in the past used similar recruitment agents and unfortunately wished I had not.
