From the very beginning of my engagement with TIMES Resources, through every renewal and beyond, they demonstrated nothing but the utmost professionalism combined with a kind and courteous service. An absolute joy to work with!

“BA is a customer centric organisation, our motto is 'To fly to serve', what we have seen from TIMES is a company that is aligned to our business goals.
As a niche player you punch above your weight, working tightly with us at a management level looking to serve us the best you can and adding value where ever you play. The hands on management of the company allows you to be fast, agile and resourceful, yet you have the ability to work in a strongly governed and corporate world such as BA. The growth of the TIMES and BA relationship has been built on strong foundations and has succeeded due to the people involved. Yours, like our business ,is a people and customer led business. Thank you for all your support and looking forward to continuing to build the relationship.”

The Royal Borough of Greenwich has worked with TIMES for some years now. During that period we have found them to be a valuable partner. They are able to source candidate for a range of roles which stretches from entry level staff to highly skilled programme and senior management staff. I would recommend them unreservedly.

TIMES have the best conversion to contracts in my experience, certainly for the roles I have been involved in placing on The Travel Programme.
First impressions are the best - CVs are always consistent, have the same look and feel, are aimed at exactly the role I am looking for and are for high quality people. When BA is paying a lot of money for contractors, this detail is important (some agencies' CVs look like they've spent all of 30 seconds on them and I have a battle to understand what the candidate can offer us).
Once placed, I appreciate the personal touch - the telephone follow up to enquire how the contractor is getting on, which is good customer service.
Every contact is personal, friendly and professional.
Matthew Morrow - British Airways
“TIMES Resources have renewed my faith in agencies particularly when it comes to paying contractors. For many years I have had to make do with waiting 1 week, 10 days, 2 weeks and even I month for fees to hit my business bank account, but to turn it around in 3 days is just fantastic….thanks guys I wish all agencies could follow your example!”

Every contract with TIMES is friendly and professional, from Simon at the sales end to Hannah doing the invoices and sorting out the billing (and being patient when I've forgot to receipt!). Every contact is personal, friendly and professional.
Matthew Morrow - Senior Project Manager at British Airways
"I am currently working as a contractor, through my Ltd company via TIMES Resources and I have found the payment processing really efficient. All invoices and signed timesheets are confirmed with an automated remittance e-mail the following day with payment then following a couple of days later. Leaving me with peace of mind and none of the usual chasing or begging for payments. One of the best payment terms I have worked with, allowing me to get on with running my business."

As General Manager Projects and Facilities at Virgin Holidays, I have worked with TIMES Resources for the last 4 years and continue to be impressed by their enthusiasm to build strong client relationships and most importantly present high calibre candidates in a timely manner. I regularly recruit for Project and Business Improvement professionals both contract and permanent into my team. There are often tight deadlines and vague briefs, but despite this, thanks to the understanding TIMES have built up about our business, they are almost always able to provide excellent candidates. Aside from the outward recruitment aspects, we also appreciate their persistence to ensure contractor logistics are managed effectively. Most of all however, we appreciate the good nature of the individuals we deal with day to day and their loyalty and support for our business.
D Bailey, General Manager Projects and Facilities at Virgin Holidays

May I take this opportunity to express great satisfaction with the service provided by Murray and the team at TIMES Resources. Their continued professionalism and dedication is unrivalled.
Scott P, Technical Services Manager, Serco European
Recruitment is hard, but Murray and his team at TIMES cracked it for me. I recruited numerous positions througout 2008/2009, and Murray's team consistently sent me CVs worth reading, and 99% of the time filled the roles. I had no need to dilute the recruitment process with other agencies because TIMES consistently delivered every time. Well done and thank you.”
Phillip M - Head of Architecture Development & Testing - August 2009
"I would just like to say what a pleasure it has been working with you to find the Architects. Whilst the search has been tricky you have provided great support and help; promptly responding to requests and even reminding me of interview dates and times. You have offered exemplary service during the whole process, for which I thank you."
Simon S - Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd
"Working with you at Times Resources has brought to my attention that you are one of the most professional agents I have been fortunate to commence a contract through. I look forward to working with you again in the near future."
I McNeice, Contract IT Project Manager
"I am writing in reference to the outstanding service I received from TIMES Resources Ltd, more specifically the professional and friendly manner which they displayed placing me in my current position. I was kept fully informed of my application progress, from the initial C.V submission stage through to final contract and salary negotiation.
I have used various agencies throughout the UK and US for both recruiting staff and seeking new positions, both with varying degrees of success.
However the service I received from the team was first class and as such I would have no hesitation in recommending Times Resources to colleagues and business contacts alike.
D R Hurst, Infrastructure Architect, IT - Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd
"TIMES Resources were courteous, professional and helpful throughout my dealings with them. They took the time to understand my motivation, requirements and experiences to ensure that the role I was interested in was a good fit in addition to providing additional background information that proved useful during the interview stages. I was kept informed of progress and was offered constructive feedback passed on from their client.
Overall was very pleased with the service that I received, successfully secured a role and would be more than happy to recommend or use them again in the future"
Sean Sweeney, Business Analyst - TUI Travel PLC
"I have only recently started working with TIMES Resources having previously attempted to work with a variety of London based IT recruitment agencies in pursuit of training positions.
Throughout the recruitment process I have been kept informed at each stage and even when the client delayed the final appointment decision, I always felt that whatever the final decision, my interests and my relationship with my existing client were being considered.
Having been finally contracted for the role, the paperwork was delivered on time and throughout the weeks leading up to the start of the contract, contact was been maintained.
As my first experience of working with TIMES Resources they have delivered everything I would expect of a professional recruitment agency."
"TIMES Resources' personnel provided excellent service to me as a contractor, removing any need to worry about contracts, terms or conditions, allowing me to concentrate on the role. Many agencies do not even make contact after a placement, only getting in touch when worried about you taking an extension. TIMES stayed in touch over the duration of the contract, visiting on a number of occasions. I am certain that this approach benefited the client as much as it did me."
Trevor Hoskins, Project Manager, Barclays Bank
“TIMES Resources have been my preferred supplier of candidates for three years. Their consistency and attention to detail have resulted in them filling more than ninety percent of my vacancies during that time. In the competitive recruitment industry TIMES' consultants personal approach and honesty is impressive and makes them a pleasure to deal with. I have been nothing but happy with the service and continue to be so”.
Will Swain, IS Manager, Telereal
J Edward from Suffolk says: “I have used TIMES Resources for over 3 years and in that time I have consistently received good quality candidates for the contract and permanent vacancies that I have been able to offer. I find TIMES approach refreshingly straight forward, honest and responsive. Their ability to find candidates that closely match the experience and salary requirements I put forward avoids unnecessary work when working through the recruitment process. TIMES also handle the 'after-sales' elements of recruitment very well enabling them to build solid and lasting relationships.”
“The professional and friendly staff at TIMES Resources are a pleasure to work with. They not only helped me find my feet in the contracting world, but the continuing support I’ve received since, has been fantastic. They always seem to have just what I need, just when I’ve needed it. Highly, highly recommended!”
J Olsen – contractor
“As a contractor, I have found TIMES Resources to be both professional and efficient in providing me with a first class level of service. It is very unusual to find an agency which takes the time to operate in such a friendly and personalised manner. I have found TIMES to be a pleasure to work with, and I hope to be able to do so again in the future”.
C Russell – contractor
