About Travail Employment Group

Travail's approach - to consult with employers, hirers and work-seekers to find the best options to meet their needs, has been the basis of an outstanding recruitment service since our establishment in 1977.

Our clients appreciate our fair dealing, full legal compliance and knowledgeable expertise. We are renowned for finding suitable assignments for temporary workers, and the temping community regard Travail as being reliable and trustworthy payers, a reputation we jealously guard. Permanent vacancy applicants often remark on our willingness to invest time in them and listen to their needs, giving them good, professional advice and encouragement.

We operate a mix of wholly-owned and franchised offices around the UK, making us one of the largest independently-owned recruitment organisations in the U.K. Being privately-owned, our commercial objectives are not tied to share price performance and trading, or market share - we do what we do and in the way we do it for the benefit of our workers, our clients (employers and hirers) our staff, and our owners.

Our services

Temporary work gives our workers the chance to earn money quickly, as we payroll weekly. It exposes them to various work environments and employers, with many being offered the opportunity of permanent work by our Clients.

See the section "Employers" for more information on how this service can help your business.

Our Introduction service is designed to secure an interview for our candidate, with an employer who has an appropriate vacancy so that they and the potential employer can consider a future working relationship.

See the section "Employers" for more information on how this service can help your business.

Confident compliance; safety aware

Whether you are an individual looking for work opportunities or a hirer / potential employer - you can feel confident in our commitment to compliance and your well-being in the fast-paced and ever evolving world of employment law and general commerce.

We apply all legislative requirements in the U.K. and operate in accordance with the E.O.C.'s guidance on Equal Opportunities. Corporate membership of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation means that we abide by the R.E.C.'s Code of Practice. Selected Travail branches that currently operate within fresh produce or food supply chain have the necessary GLAA Gang Master licence, and other Branches are able to apply should your business require a licensed supplier of services.

Please review all the sections in our website to discover more about working with Travail - either as a Temporary Worker, Candidate for Permanent Employment, or Contractor; or as a Hirer of our services, or potential Employer of our candidate(s). Please use the "get in touch" button to find your local branch, and ways to contact us.

Join the Travail team!

Recruitment is an exciting and rewarding career choice, exposing those who enter it to a variety of skills, talents, philosophies and commitment levels that one would not ordinarily explore! Being a "people business" means that understanding people, and having the maturity to empathise through understanding yourself, is a massively important facet.

Bring enthusiasm, commitment, motivation and a "can do" attitude to Travail, and we will deliver the advice, support and training to help you work to the best of your abilities, and unlock your potential.

Of course we cannot guarantee we will be hiring in your locality when you call, but we will be happy to talk with you about what we do and give advice about entering the industry, and keep you posted when we do have a vacancy that might be right for you.
