One of the most important things to us is WHY we love recruitment and WHY people use our services, and continue to do so time after time.
By far my favourite recruiters - I felt warm and welcomed the minute I walked into Huntingdon 1st Choice. Abi was SO good - I felt supported by her the whole way and my confidence boosted straight away, just from her belief in me finding a good role.

With agencies in general, they promise you the world but instead throw your name into a little hat to be slowly hand picked for random jobs that will never be of any relevance to you and your career options.
With 1st Choice meanwhile I had a whole different experience. Their signing on process was cohesive and straight forward. I had the pleasure of being dealt with by Izzie and Lorraine, both of which had a strong level of professionalism with a personal touch that made me feel comfortable to talk through what I was looking for in a career based around my current circumstances. They offered advice and promised the world like other agencies did but the difference was is they delivered and have started a new position only 48 hours later from when I signed on. Either a miracle or Izzie is that good at cherry picking job positions. All I know is I now have a new job at an exciting place close to home with reasonable pay. Thank you.
I have had a very difficult 4 years after the failure of my own Business. 1st Choice got me an opportunity with an Electrical Wholesaler on a Temporary to Permanent basis in their Warehouse Picking & Packing. After 7 weeks a position was advertised for a Purchasing Assistant in the company, I got the job and having completed my 12 weeks I started on a permanent full time basis on 1st April.
A big thank you to all the team at the Biggleswade branch for their support and help in getting me back on my feet.
Lauren and the team at 1st Choice Recruitment in Milton Keynes have been brilliant! After being made redundant at the end of January, I went in to see Lauren and she was so friendly and supportive in what was a really horrible time for me. Lauren listened to my experience and kept me informed of upcoming temporary work. I went on my honeymoon for 2 weeks and Lauren had lined up a temporary role for me to start as soon as I got back. Thank you so much for your help Lauren but in the nicest possible way, I hope I don't have to speak to you again 🙂
A unique recruitment agency that actually takes the time to understand their client and the needs of their business. I believe that I have met and spoken will all their staff members, and all are equally, friendly, polite and efficient. People are at the core of all that they do.
An amazing team at 1st Choice Recruitment Huntingdon, a constant source of support who are consistently exceeding expectations.
I have never worked for a Temp Agency before, It was a new experience for me coming from a permanent position that had ended, I decided to approach 1st Choice Recruitment, I was unsure how the whole thing worked, I was told to come down to the office with my CV and other certificates I had.
My initial first meeting was very confidential, polite and low key, we sat in a secluded area and a member of the team asked questions as to what area of work I was suited to, we had a 20 minute conversation and I was told they would give me a call, later that evening I had a call offering a position, I was amazed how quickly they worked, I accepted the offer and went to work 2 days later, I worked a week in hand and filled out a time sheet once a week, the money went straight into my bank account without any issues at all, the girls at 1st Choice are friendly and accommodating, I didn’t feel the need to apply to any other agency as this operation seemed flawless.
After a few months the position I had finished, I immediately received a text message from Katie saying thanks for all the work and to pop back down to see if 1st Choice could help, so i did, and yet again at the end of that day I was offered yet another position.
A very honest, professional team, who actively get work! I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Big thank you to Lorraine in Milton Keynes for helping me find a new job. After my awful treatment and time in my previous job you found me a new job fast and listened and got to know me well to find a job that I wanted but also suited. Lovely friendly professional lady and company! Highly recommended!

Kirsty has really looked after me in my job-hunting and placement. I would really recommend 1st Choice for their friendly attitude, efficiency and for being so approachable. My experience of other agencies over the years has always left me slightly nervous of recruitment consultants, but these ladies really do their best for you.
Elleesa Jones - Candidate

Thanks once again
1st Choice Staff Recruitment has been a valuable recruitment partner of our Milton Keynes business for the last year. They have a very people-centric approach that goes beyond just matching skills and experience to a job spec. I know when I interview a 1st Choice candidate they will have already vetted as a suitable fit within our company and culture by a partner who knows us well. Emma leads a great team who never fail to provide a great service.
