When looking for my next role, Saffron Vantage was by far one of the best recruitment agencies I dealt with. The communication was great, and I felt Max really cared about finding me the right role. Max got me multiple interviews and helped me land my current role. I cannot recommend enough.

Charlotte - Assistant Quantity Surveyor

Was with this agency for nearly 3 months. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. Ged was great and supported me all the way through my working experience within the agency.

Chris - Refuse Loader

Out of the many agencies I signed up to Saffron/Jay were the only ones to have a continual quality service. Will be seeking them again hopefully when I get my class one in the future. Highly recommend this agency above all others.

Matt - Class 2 Driver

Having worked closely with Franco and Saffron Vantage over the past year I cannot recommend the company highly enough for their expertise in hiring skilled operatives within the groundworks sector. Franco’s communication is second to none and all labour sourced has been some of the best agency staff I have ever had the pleasure to work with in my twenty years within the construction sector.

Contracts Manager - Civil Engineering Company

I've been going to Saffron Vantage for both HGV & forklift drivers for the past 18 months. Jay has always been happy to help with any of our requirements and is always in good communication throughout the process. We will continue to use them for any continued support that we need.

Transport Manager - Haulage Company

We have used Saffron Vantage over the past year on numerous projects particularly for Shuttering Carpenters on our RC Frames. We found all chippies supplied from Saffron Vantage of good workmanship and we managed to keep the same crews on throughout the durations of our projects. I would highly recommend Franco and the team for the supply of operatives.
