Not all job agencies in Basingstoke are the same but we reckon there is one thing we’d all agree on – our industry is all about talking to people. At Wote Street People we’re on an ongoing quest to make sure that we’re meeting our customers’ expectations; that’s why we send out a feedback form after each registration interview.
We ask a range of questions ranging from how people found out about us to what made them contact us. Did they feel they were listened to? Would they recommend us to a friend?
A reputation built on trust
Over 46% of people find us via Google or another internet search engine, which tells us that our candidates often look for an agency they can trust rather than for a specific job.
So why do they contact us at Wote Street People, as opposed to the other job agencies in Basingstoke? In our customer survey, we ask them to choose from the following list of reasons:
2) our website made it easy for them to get in touch
3) the jobs we had advertised were the most interesting
4) we have a picture of our team on the website
Word of mouth is everything
Coming in with the top score of over 38% was ‘they liked what they had heard about us’, which just goes to show that word of mouth really is our most powerful advertisement. Backing that up is another survey statistic we’re extremely proud of: 100% of people who registered face-to-face with one of our consultants felt that they were listened to and had time to discuss their career options.
The same 100% also said that they would be happy to recommend us to friends and family. That’s reflected in the 25% of our placements (temporary or permanent) filled by candidates who were referred to us by someone they knew.

We won’t forget 2020 in a hurry. A tragic pandemic. Lockdowns. Unprecedented economic catastrophe. Has there been anything positive? Well, actually, yes! Behind every cloud is a silver lining, as they say. Especially when you resolve to see the glass as half full, not as half empty – as I always try to do. What[…..]
