Could not endorse Jodie more. She builds good relationships with candidates, not only learning their backgrounds and experience, but their career goals too to ensure that she matches the right candidates in the right roles ensuring longevity in the placements.

Construction Site Manager


Searching for a new job is never an enviable task and having dealt with recruitment agents in the past it can be somewhat overwhelming trying to find the right role and more importantly the right company.

My consultant approached me shortly after posting my CV online, I found her to be positive and enthusiastic without being overbearing. She organised the interview around my hectic schedule, kept in constant contact regarding the role, delivering feedback whilst generally assessing my suitability for the role for myself and also her client, which I think is important for long term prospects for both parties.

I can't recommend XCL highly enough, although I have no intention to look for a career move in the future I wouldn't hesitate to get back in contact should the need arise.

Quantity Surveyor / Estimator


I am happy to recommend the recruitment service offered by XCL Management. I have recently used the companies’ services and found staff to be extremely attentive and efficient. They were extremely knowledgeable and approachable at all times and continue to use their services.

Manufacturing Director


I was very impressed with the efficiency of XCL, and in particular Jodie who was extremely informative, knowledgeable and proactive when sourcing a new site manager for us. I would happily recommend XCL and would look to utilise their recruiting skills in the future as and when key positions arise with our company.

Commercial Director


The team at XCL provided a wonderful service throughout all communications and correspondence, a friendly and professional service. All dialogue has been clear and concise with timely contact keeping me updated with all progressions in relation to the position.

Pre interview advice and discussion helped ease any nerves that I had and put me in a more confident footing and better prepared of what to anticipate at interview stage.

I would highly recommend your service to family and friends on the back of my consultant's hard work and constant dedication. It has been an absolute pleasure.



We have worked with XCL Management for over a year now and we will be continuing to work with them. The team always listen to our requirements for both permanent and temporary staff and take time to visit our office to fully understand the role and type of person to fit into our small team.

We have recruited a few excellent members of staff with thanks to XCL only recommending suitable candidates, hence saving me time in my busy role interviewing many applicants. I can highly recommend them.

HR Manager


I was very impressed with the service provided by XCL, and our account manager, who was extremely knowledgeable in finding what we were looking for in a candidate when sourcing an Estimator/Quantity Surveyor for us.

I would happily recommend XCL and would look to utilise their recruiting skills in the future as and when key positions arise with our company.

Site Manager


My consultant provided help and support from start to finish. She kept me informed and updated throughout the process. I was looking for very specific features in my next role to have a work/ life balance, but she found the perfect role. Her knowledge within the industry is excellent and far better than most other recruiters I have dealt with in the past. Thank you for all the help

TEKLA Draughtsman


I would like to say that working with XCL has been a breath of fresh air, I have worked with a considerable amount of recruitment agencies during 27 years of factory management and none have showed the same commitment as XCL.

The interview process that XCL do with prospective employees would seem to be a lot better than other agencies as the turnaround of staff is in comparison much less. XCL also go the extra mile to fulfil the required roles and seem to work tirelessly to find the right people for those roles.

I have been extremely impressed with the ideas that Rebecca and Chloe have in finding people to fill roles where others have failed, especially with them both attending site regularly to register and interview prospective employees. which then enables us to interview a lot quicker.

We currently have about 5 agencies on the look out for staff and at the moment the first phone call is to XCL as we know they will endeavour to work hard to find the right candidate and most of the time they do.

I have worked with the same agency for the last 15 years and have always given them priority on supplying staff, Rebecca and Chloe have impressed me so much that I always speak to XCL first.

Factory Manager


We started using XCL Management when our new distribution centre in Portbury was opened. Rebecca and her team have played a key part in the success of this new site by providing staff and training as well as responding to requests quickly and efficiently. XCL have provided both temporary and permanent staff for us and we would not hesitate to recommend their services to others.

HR Manager


At long last, I have found with XCL, a Recruitment Agency that manages to send over ideal candidates.

Amy is professional and polite and always produces the perfect applicants out of nowhere which other agencies don’t seem to be able to do.

Whilst building a good working relationship with us, she takes time to understand and listen to what we require for each role and because of this XCL have managed to place several candidates with us over the last couple of months.

Sales Operations Manager


XCL Recruitment stepped in where other agencies had failed. The job they put me forward for was exactly the job description and organisation I was searching for. I've been with the company for 3 weeks now and I've been able to hit the ground running thanks to their hard work behind the scenes and their excellent ability to find the company that fit me perfectly. 

Sales & Marketing Co-ordinator


Refreshing experience received from Amy, with communication maintained, keeping me up to date on any movements which has been a rare experience from other agencies. Amy's perseverance has paid off and secured a new position for me.
