I had just finished my internship and in the process of looking for employment. Most companies I applied with advised that I did not have substantial experience hence they wouldn't take me on. However, upon applying with Staffinders, I had a quick response from the senior recruiter - Michelle who invited me for an interview. She was so friendly and really boosted my morale. I was so impressed that she had so much confidence in me and she was willing to send me out working as soon as possible.
3 weeks later, I got a phone call from Michelle with my first post. I was very pleased and excited at the opportunity. After that, Michelle got me another 6 months post. I am very happy with all the posts and the work I have been doing so far. More so, that Staffinders always get in touch to find out how their staff are coping.
The confidence they had me and the chance they gave me in getting me good posts has been exceptional, especially after going through a hard time to find stable employment. Moreover, Staffinders have been very helpful in getting me through an amazing career ladder where I am now working within fields and subjects in line with my qualifications.
Thank you Staffinders, Thank you Michelle for taking a chance on me.

Some of our funniest work stories to keep the inspiration flowing
- Tom, intern at Stafffinders: “My first job was in a fast food chain. It was a hot summer’s day so demand for iced drinks was through the roof. The machine was empty and in my eagerness to refill it with the special liquid mix, I ended up dropping 5 litres all over the stock room floor. To the amusement of my fellow colleagues, (but not my manager!) I was made to mop it up, which took much longer than expected.”
- Brogan, intern at Stafffinders: “I worked in a popular gelateria and one day I spilled milkshake mix all over myself and on the floor in front of a long queue of customers (the queue continued out through the door!). I had to work for the rest of my shift smelling of dairy and with sticky hair. “
- Found at the bottom of a candidate’s job application: “Please lord help me be the person my dog thinks I am”.
- A temp candidate, who was in the running for a permanent position, decided to kidnap the Chairman’s toy reindeer during Christmas time after hearing how mad he was when someone stole it the year before. The candidate decided to go one step further and take the reindeer on an adventure!
He took it shopping, to the pub and to bed (dressed in PJ’s). He then took pictures of the reindeer, as well as keeping a diary for it. The candidate then sent an email to everyone in the company about the adventures of the reindeer, from the reindeer’s very own e-mail account, before returning it.
Thankfully, the Chairman appreciated the joke and the candidate was offered the permanent job in the end!
