Read what our candidates have to say about us
"I would like to thank you very much as I feel happy and satisfied that you managed to match me with a supportive manager. I also receive good supervision and good support from my Principal Care Manager. I have integrated well with the team and enjoy working with the generic client group as I feel that it utilises most of my skills and knowledge. I feel valued and listened to by you as when I have queries e.g with my payments you quickly attend and resolve them; this leads me to have more trust in your service. I wish to continue with this good working relationship with you and your company."

"I had not worked as a locum or through an agency before, but have found Guidant very helpful, friendly and efficient. Emma found me more posts when my contract ended, and arranged my mandatory training for my current post. All paperwork is completed by Guidant, with minimal effort on my part! They always email me to remind me to submit my hours, and chase the employer if required, so that I am always paid promptly (even over the Christmas period)."
