Review of Platinum Recruitment Ltd by Sam Anderson

Very very bad agents. I worked at one of the firms they send kitchen staff to JP Morgan in Bournemouth. They sent a chef who was shockingly bad. He knew nothing and had filthy habits. I never saw him wash his hands. He said he hated bankers and joked that he spat in food being served to employees. This was reported to Mr Page but nothing was done. JP Morgan should invest in their own staff rather than rely on theae people.

Platinum is pretty much a life saver. Whenever I need help with a job I know I can count on them. I have worked for Platinum for a few years now and the team there is really professional and friendly. Even the jobs they offer sometimes don't feel like work because they are in such a beautiful settings or it's just an interesting event like horse raising in Cheltenham, wedding or boxing match. I highly recommend this agency to anyone who is looking for a flexible job or wants to hire staff. Thank you team Platinum!

Carla Arnold is my guardian angel. She kept me working even in quiet seasons, up to 2AA rosette hotels. All the guys from Platinum are friendly and always able to help.
Keep up the good work you lovely people

I have worked with Platinum for sometime now with the previous business with the same name and this one - Andy pressured me to write a positive review because a client is publishing stuff but I am not going too!!!!! Sorry Si! It's all sales sales sales and quality is going down the pan and clients are bullied to pay - threats and sales let's hope the Southampton office is going to be much better than Bournemouth it could be good - shame really - nice cars though.

They promote themselves as a specialist professional recruitment Agency in the catering sector only sending high quality and suitably qualified chefs into hotels and restaurants around the UK.

For their professional service, which they claim ensures that they only send high calibre chefs, they charge a fee which is added to the hourly rate paid to their chefs.

Based on their declarations we decided to use them after believing the promises on their website and during subsequent 'phone conversations. They confirmed that when they say 'suitably qualified' it meant that they checked that all their chefs had current Level 2 Food Safety Certificates.

Unfortunately, and at our expense, this turned out to be untrue as we discovered that only one of the chefs they sent to us held a basic Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate. Because of this we nearly lost our business and one of the chefs they sent us could have harmed or even killed customers due to poor food hygiene standards.

A summary of the four chefs they sent us:

Chef #1. No Level 2 Food Safety Certificate.

Chef #2. Had a Level 2 Food Safety Certificate. However, he ordered drugs over the internet resulting in a full scale Police raid on his accommodation at our hotel. This disrupted a busy Christmas service and created significant adverse publicity.

Chef #3. No Level 2 Food Safety Certificate. Not washing bread bins between restocking which caused a build up of mould on flour residue which was transferred to new bread rolls.

Chef #4. No Level 2 Food Safety Certificate. They recommended this chef as a Trainer for our chefs. He was recommended as our new Head Chef and they charged £6,000 in professional fees for this recommendation which we paid. When in-post as our Head Chef an EHO conducted a routine regulatory inspection where she discovered that he was storing fish without dates and there were serious Cross Contamination issues resulting in our downgrading by the EHO from a 4 Star to a 2 Star Rating. When questioned about not dating fish he replied by saying, "No dating is needed for fish as it smells when it's off." We have since discovered that only one of the chefs they sent to us had Level 2 Certification. This chef is now being sought by police as he committed fraud against us when obtaining the job from us by lying about his qualifications and experience. We trusted what he told us as the Agency recommended him to us and they reassured us as they said that they had conducted thorough reference checks and had on file a copy of his Level 2 Food Safety Certificate. He was our Head Chef and he didn't even have a Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate which explained his serious inadequacies highlighted in the EHO's report. We dispensed with their services and we secured a 5 Star Food Hygiene Rating with our own staff.

We have suffered very serious damage to our business and this could have killed someone through poor food hygiene practices by their unqualified chefs. The damage may yet have destroyed our business as the losses are so significant and we are still suffering as a consequence of their performance.

I suffer from bi-polar disorder and chronic depression and due to the experience of dealing with this Agency where their actions could have had catastrophic consequences I considered suicide. Their Solicitor, Lester Aldridge LLP, described this review as 'childish'. Public safety, Drug Offences, Mental Health and Misrepresentation are not childish subjects.

They have responded below by claiming that they are disputing the allegations. Which ones? I have an e-mail from them confirming they ask all their chefs for a Level 2 Certificate. Only one chef they sent us had one. The Police raid connected with drug offences by their chef was conducted by West Mercia Police in December 2015. The same Force are seeking their other chef in a fraud investigation. The EHO who conducted the regulatory check is from Shropshire Council's Environmental Team. Our Solicitors are dealing with this too but others should know for public safety.

I've worked for Platinum Recruitments, on and off, for three years with them as my only employer and they've been by far the best and fairest employment I've had. The hours are always available, they're in your corner and who doesn't love the privilege of being asked 'if' they can work.

I would like to take this opportunity to write a review about this amazing agency , in fact the people working there. From the day I applied for the job , Rebecca contacted me to arrange an interview with the Company . It was only 30 minutes when she called me that the interview was arranged. I was trilled. I can't miss saying that she constantly sent me good luck emails before each interview and called me after for a feedback and followed up with the Company. It takes experience and passion to deliver 5 stars customer service and Rebecca has it all. I will always be grateful to her and most definitely will recommend this agency. Thank you!

I have been working with platinum for a while now and I have to say they are amazing. Karen is always such a pleasure to talk to., she is passionate about finding me the right team for the business and is always checking in to ensure things remain strong.
I can't recommend platinum enough. Having worked with other agencies in the past I always find myself coming back to the one who consistently performs.
Thankyou so much.

I have worked for platinum for approximately 2 years now and I can confidently say its been a pleasure. I am a design student in Bournemouth in a highly demanding course which doesn't leave me allot of time to do anything else but work, but a man needs to earn money to get by.

I heard about platinum from a friend who recommended them to me as they knew I needed a job that was flexible enough to juggle with my university work, they were perfect. I tell the friendly and polite recruitment team each week when I'm available to work over the phone and then I do my shift, It's as easy as that and I'm very happy to work for them.

I have recommended them to plenty of friends who now work for them and are all as committed as I am.

I've worked for Platinum Recruitment since 2013 and I can truly say they've been great. As a student of Bournemouth University, I've had to balance heavy workloads with trying to earn money to cover essentials such as rent and bills which student finance does not cover. Platinum Recruitment has been my saviour here. With very flexible hours and incredibly friendly staff whom I'm in contact with weekly, we've kept a great relationship over the years. A well recommended company!

By far, the best recruitment company I have worked for. The consultants are always very helpful and friendly with a professional approach. They are punctual in sending the payslips which makes it easy to plan your spendings ahead. I'm utterly satisfied with my flexible hours as it doesn't interfere with my studies. Working in various events around Dorset allowed me to make amazing friendships and develop a variety of skills. I highly recommend their services!

Been working with Platinum Recruitment on a part time basis since November. The recruitment team are really lovely and polite, including the receptionists. I've worked in a variety of locations, including Bournemouth Airport, the Bournemouth International Centre and AFC Bournemouth. There is a lot of flexibility working for the agency, which is perfect for me being a final year student! You can pick and choose your shifts, making it easy with a busy schedule :)

Find a better agency or permanent job! These people are shocking, joined 2.5 months ago with the promise of work next week and apart from 1x 4h shift I have been offered nothing until recently, after I found my own Job! I asked to be removed from their books but I still keep receiving calls and emails, unprofessional, unreliable and keeping my data even though I asked them not too, whats worse is I left an honest 1 star (cant leave negative) review months ago alongside many others but now I see only 5 star reviews with telltale followups from the owner, pay close attention to the response to the person mentioning the receptionist, the main receptionist of the shared building they're based in is an old male security gard, rather than apologise or explain they blamed the client for being in wrong place.. That says a lot about the professionalism of this place. Dont fill thair books with clients, Honesty.. Avoid like the plague!

I have been working with Platinum for over 3 years now. I think it is one of the best and most professional recruitment agency in the area. I have worked with other agencies as well, but Platinum staff has always been the most knowledgeable, trusted, high standard experts and specialists in their field.

Keep up the good work.
Thank you,
