I’m originally from Stoke but moved to live in Cornwall for a number of years before returning back home in 2003. When I moved back I saw Premier Placement Services and thought that it would be a good idea to register with them to get some work until I decided what I was going to do for a job. I have now been working with Premier Placement Services for 12 years in various driving roles and find the team very friendly and always willing to work with me to suit me needs. Wages are always paid on time and any issues are resolved immediately. As I’m approaching my 60th birthday, I’ve recently reduced my hours and Premier Placement Services have been more than happy to offer flexible working patterns and have even said that if driving becomes less attractive to me as I get older, alternative work will be available too. I really enjoy the flexibility that agency work provides and it means that I can work when I want to and take holidays when I want to!
