Proactive Personel was fun too work for and was well paid there just wasn’t much actual job security as it was agency work and was very hard to get a full time contract with the employers.


Paid breaks


Long/unsocialable hours

Good agency

Would 100% recommend proactive personnel to anyone who is looking for work, Got me straight into a job, the company I worked for was great good hours, good breaks and lovely people, the environment was very welcoming and the managers are lovely. Agency are really nice. I never had any problems with my hours and was always guaranteed work.


good breaks, guarenteed work

Maximum work ,minimum wage

Agency itself very good, working at securafence not so good, basically work you like a dog for minimum wage, no prospects, you need to work flat out all day long to reach targets and if you dont then questions are asked back breaking work with high turnover of staff for this reason.


May get contract


Back breaking work, terrible wage for this kind of work

The best place to work

It was a complete pleasure working for Proactive Personnel, if it wasn't due to redundancy I would still 100% work there! The Derby team are the best group of people to work with and work hard to meet candidates needs. I couldn't have asked for a better experience working for proactive for the last 3 years.

Agency say no more.

Worked for these for 3 years on and off nearly every week wages we're wrong or incorrect pay rate (always less) Very unprofessional outfit. Would often go weeks without work. Occasionally turn up for work somewhere to be turned away with no offer of fuel costs or anything. Would regularly say have a weeks work lined up to then be ignored until something did come up.

Wrong wages every week.

Messed up the most important part of the job every week.... Wages. Had to phone up several times to sort it out and in the end lost my rag and had a full on argument with the nipper on the phone - then he tells me to calm down and speak to him normally! Full on stress and no money to pay the bills, you try talking normally when you aren't getting what you've earned. So just do yourself a favour and find work elsewhere, you have been warned

Very great

Working there was really. Learned how to pick orders and load and unload goods. The hardest part of the job is when the goods are not parked well in the container. But I really loved working with them.

Good place to start

Highly reccomended to people (drivers) without experience, which seek to improve their skills and see how daily driver routine looks like. Lack of job, sometimes only 2 days in a week. Forgiving people, full of understanding and very helpfull.

Just another recruitment agency.

Nice and friendly staff. sometimes errors with the payments, quickly solved. Not excellent payment, but most of the works are for long, if you are a good worker,

Another bad agency

Was offered 12 weeks work in a factory which very despicably ended up being 2 weeks because of the floor manager pushing us to go faster.This manager also said we would be offered permanent work without the agency involved?

Good for part time work

I worked when I wanted and got to choose where I went. The pay was good and the hours were enough so that if I worked say for only 1 day, I'd still make around £100. Very flexible and always had work opportunities for me.

Don't waste your time, they'll waste yours for fun

Went to an interview they arranged, they didn't even have the decency to call and tell me i hadn't been successful. I called a week after interview and they said they're still waiting and will let me know asap. They never did call. Am i expected to beg to be kept informed? I don't think so. Unless you like being taken for a fool, don't give them an opportunity to make money.
