About Extra Personnel

Extra Personnel was first established in 1992 where we have grown from a single branch to a market leading independent recruitment business. 

We are part of The Staffing Group, the parent company of Extra Personnel and Single Resource. Across the group we have an extensive network coverage and we offer a nationwide recruitment solution for clients large and small through our unique supply model. We have experience in providing branch lead solutions as well as tailor made onsite contracts 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

We operate across the Industrial, Driving, Professional, Automotive, Aviation and Technical sectors for both the temporary and permanent placements.

Our teams and customers across the UK are supported by our head office departments who are experts in the various ongoing and everchanging recruitment market, providing assurance that you are partnered with a professional compliant supplier who holds worker welfare and brand protection at the heart of all we do.

We work hard to understand not just the mechanics of each individual job, but the things about it that really matter.  So our “five things you have to get right” is a key part of our specialist pre-assignment induction to make sure our Flexi-Workers know what good looks like, and how to achieve it.

Our testing is also highly specialised and job-specific.  Whether it’s taco and route planning tests for drivers or order picking for warehouse jobs using real client data, we relate our testing to the real environments and challenges our candidates will face.

All this means that you can have full confidence that we will only place people with the right skills sets who are well prepared and job ready – confirmed by a “passport to work”.

That’s only the start.  A separate team of implementation managers will involve themselves “hands-on” (including getting inducted and doing a shift) – while dedicated account managers concentrate exclusively on recruitment and workforce management to client KPIs.
