I can actually say I enjoy working with the guys and girls at Dolphin Personnel. They listen to what we need in candidates, take it away and use it to source the right people. They've made my job so much easier.

We have used Dolphin Personnel successfully for many years and find them to be well-versed in knowing the calibre of staffing we need here at Trade Access Panels. Since we still utilise their services, we find the Dolphin staff to be extremely helpful and they are a very useful agency to recruit staff for our administrative positions. We would strongly recommend Dolphin.
