I registered with RR and received an email offering me a week's work looking after an estate's grounds while the keeper was on holiday. The job information emailed through was first rate - where, when, how long, how much pay etc. This reassured me and gave me the peace of mind to know I was dealing with a very professional and trustworthy agency.

Whilst working on the estate I received a call from George to see that everything was OK. When the work finished, George gave me a follow up call to see how it all went plus offered me a further month of work at the same Estate. I was delighted and am even more pleased that this temporary work has now  progressed into a full time position not only for me, but also my partner and we now also live on the Estate!

What a fantastic service - thank you RR!
