Potensis have always worked hard to ensure that the quality of the people they put forward is very high. This saves our Managers a considerable amount of time and results in us recruiting the right people both on a temporary and permanent basis.

I can confirm that Potensis ltd were engaged by Berkeley Homes West London in August 2016 to provide candidates for a vacant position on one of our live projects. The Commercial manager role had been available for a number of months, however Connor Burnett was able to provide a number of suitable CVs for the role and one of his candidates joined the business in October 2016.
I will not hesitate to use their services in the future and I would recommend them to other businesses within the Berkeley Group looking to expand their preferred supplier lists.
