​It has been so refreshing working with Sphere, and in particular Nicole Barnes. Not only do they offer a great recruitment service, but they have a unique offering with the community investment support available to organisations in the South Wales area. It has been really exciting partnering in relation to the On Site Construction Academy and seeing our first candidate going full circle as part of this process. We have also been very grateful for the invaluable support from Nicole and the wider team in relation to educational engagement and employee wellbeing.

Charlie - Community Investment Manager

Wates Residential

​Jo has provided me with excellent service, been second to none. Contact and communication, checking what's going on, chasing potential new employees for interviews and offers. Also, cooling me down when finding out information I probably shouldn't of found out. Over and beyond. Thank you and would highly recommend Jo to anyone looking for a new role in construction.
