Wouldn't bother with agencies. Applied for a job with Reed.co.uk and not long later heard back from a guy who works there asking me to come in to the office in Sunderland to see someone in regard to the job. I also had to have something like a CRB check done which I had to do and purchase online. Once there and with my new bit of paper and one or two bits of ID I had to fill out these forms which took ages. I was told I would hear back from them. I would never hear back from them.
I applied for another job with another agency and again was called to their office. It was now in Collingwood St in Newcastle. A good interview was ended with the person conducting it saying they would forward on details of me to the Port of Tyne Authority where they would get back to the person conducting the interview. Again I would not hear anything again.
Agencies are wholly unreliable and the worst way to go when entering work.
