In my capacity as Manufacturing Manager, I work with FPR Group as a sole supplier, of temporary and permanent shop floor staff, in a mechanical led manufacturing environment and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They have achieved 100% fulfilment on all temporary bookings and are always extremely responsive, even at very short notice. It is always a concern that bringing temporary staff into the working environment will result in a drop in production, however their testing and assessing of all temporary staff to meet the business needs has ensured that we experience no discernible drop in productivity. Additionally their programme of induction when introducing staff to this site has saved me time personally. If you are looking for an effective recruitment partner, who understands manufacturing use FPR Group.
John Bloomfield (Production Manager)
Over the past 10 years I have worked with the FPR Group in an electro-mechanical and a pharmaceutical high volume manufacturing environments. The more recent has been as a sole supplier to which they are responsible for supplying temporary/contract staff in a, often at short notice. They test the staff 100% for suitability through dexterity and educational testing, which ensures that only the most suited and best fit personnel are supplied.
As a Manufacturing/Production Manager this allows me to focus on the business needs, QCD (Quality, Cost and Delivery) and Productivity, without the additional recruitment process.
I recommend FPR group as an effective partnership in recruiting the people best suited to the manufacturing environment.
Paul Keep (Production Manager)
“FPR Group have been providing us with temporary workers for over 10 years. Following significant restructure our core workforce is 100% permanent, however there are peak times in our Production calendar whereby I have given FPR enough notice to organize temporary labour; that they understand will fit with our business model and needs. On occasions whereby we need support at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances FPR have always delivered within 2 hours and the people provided are receptive to the short training package we deliver to enable them to be effective alongside the permanent workforce.
The Area operations manager is very helpful and supportive of my Shift Leaders, and I recommend engaging FPR as a resource partner to any organization.”

Appointing Manager, Thomas Sanderson Limited
Your agency is proof that you don’t need to send lots of CV’s in order to “hit one” good one – so thank you for not being the type of agency that bombards us with rubbish in the hope that one of the candidates might be a suitable match. You are one of the few agencies who really do screen CV’s before sending us anything. I would far rather receive one or two CV’s that are good, than 10 that are irrelevant.
Human Resources Manager, West Control Systems
“I have had the pleasure of working with Tracey and the FPR Group over the last 2 years. In all that time, I have found them to be a very professional organisation. FPR Group has always discussed in detail the job description and my specific candidate requirements. From this information they have gone away and have sourced, filtered and provided relevant CV’s, to which I have found all the personnel interviewed, to be competent and able to back up what was written down on the CV.
As a provider of technical personnel, I will be definitely using FPR again, whenever I have the requirement and I would urge other companies in the technical field, to seriously consider them for their recruiting needs.”
