I've been through many agencies in the past and none have compared to Fortem People. Their willingness to understand my needs and guide me towards jobs that they believe suit me is unparallel to other recruitment agencies. Esther in particular helped me to understand my skill sets and tailor these to specific job roles. She managed to get me temporary work with a flexible company which in turn allowed me the time to interview for more permanent jobs whilst maintaining a steady income. If you're struggling for work or are unsure on where your skill sets could be best used don't hesitate to contact Fortem People.

I have worked with Fortem People for a number of years and they never cease to find amazing talent, especially in those hard to fill roles. I also attend their networking sessions and cannot recommend them enough - exceptional speakers, remarkable food and refreshments and an opportunity to make some great connections. Thanks guys!

Thoroughly enjoyed my first Seminar in Barn! Fantastic recruitment agency, Jane and her team remain professional but very down to earth which is a great combination. Also placed another successful candidate recently, thank you!

The Barn venue was beautiful! I attended a seminar here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The catering was fantastic, the views were outstanding and the hospitality from The Fortem People, was just brilliant. Lovely, fresh and positive venue. Highly recommend
