Focused Recruitment logo and testimonial for Calverton Finance

“Switching is as easy as 1, 2, 3” says Focused Recruitment

Posted: 19th June 2018

As one of the leading recruitment agencies in Wales, Focused Recruitment provides a busy and vibrant management of temporary workers, as well as appointing permanent placements, so keeping on top of their cashflow, payroll, legislation and compliance is a priority. They initially went to their bank who offered them management of the funding and payroll. But ultimately they didn’t provide them with the levels of service that they required. But worse was to come when the bank decided to pull out of the market!

The very thought of switching factoring providers was, like many, too much to bear – too time consuming, too complicated and too disruptive. However, “switching over your factoring and back office provider really is as easy as 1, 2, 3. And what’s more, so worth it!” says Focused Recruitment’s, Operations Director, Jamie Dickinson.

When Focused Recruitment was forced to switch, they were, quite understandably, very worried. “The first thought was that switching would not only be time consuming but ultimately it might disrupt our successful business and affect our valued workforce. We certainly couldn’t risk any ‘blips’ in assessing their time sheets, calculating their payroll, and certainly not working out their tax and pension contributions.” explains Jamie.

Yet, help was at hand and Calverton Finance came to the rescue. After being approached by many other worried businesses, Calverton have migrated the business operations of a number of recruitment companies that have been let down by this high street bank, transferring their operations to their own PayFactory facility.

Jamie goes on to describe his switching experience, “The migration of our finance and back office facility to Calverton was extremely quick and easy, without complications. Having met the Calverton team we were immediately put at ease, knowing our business was in safe hands. The service and their knowledge, from the very first meeting, was faultless.”

Whether your business is big or small, established or a start up, Calverton’s PayFactory is the ideal back office solution for your recruitment agency.

“We are a very large company – in the Top 5 of our previous provider. With a large temporary workforce, the administration needs to be seamless, yet knowledgeable and capable enough to cope with our size. We needn’t have worried – big (meaning a huge high street bank) doesn’t mean better. What Calverton has demonstrated is their PayFactory facility is a superior, workable, practical and efficient recruitment back office facility.”

“The support we received from the Calverton team has been overwhelming. They are always available at the end of the phone. No question or query is too much trouble, and you are never made to feel like you are bothering them. What you get from a provider like Calverton is personal service that’s flexible to your needs. They aren’t too big that they don’t know who you are. You are more than a number, or a company name. You really do feel that you’re all working for the same side – our side.” Jamie adds.
