I ‘ve been working with Vine Recruitment since 2019 to help with staffing at a number of supported living houses across Didcot, Wantage and Oxford. The residents have a range of learning disabilities, so specialist staff with the right knowledge are often needed to cover shifts around the clock.

I was passed Vine’s number by a colleague and ever since I used them for the first time, I’ve never used anyone else – they’re amazing. On those occasions where you have to find someone at the very last minute, they have found someone to cover every shift, to the extent that on one occasion, they sent someone within two hours. There was another time when Zororo couldn’t find someone, so she herself stepped in and did the shift herself. You just can’t ask for any better than that.”

Unlike some other agencies who might not even call back if they can’t help, Vine will call you back in minutes. You know they are going to be there and that they’re going to be reliable.

Zororo and Terence are lovely people. They’re always polite, nice and helpful, and I know all the managers I speak to feel the same way. I wouldn’t hesitate to call them because they are just so good. Some agency staff come in and ask what they have to do. The Vine Recruitment staff get straight in there, check the support plans and risk assessments and know what they’re doing which is lovely and fills you with confidence and peace of mind.

They have a really good relationship with the clients and with the fellow staff and we always get really positive comments from permanent staff members. They know to read the comms book and personal notes and always ensure they leave good comprehensive handover notes. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them”.
