CLIENTS


“The Vickerstock team are clearly specialists in their field.”

“Hughes Mushrooms is a third-generation family run company, and we ensure that this culture is at the forefront of everything we do. We supply mushrooms into the Northern Ireland, Irish and UK markets and have spent the last year expanding our business, with a new site opening in the UK and further facilities opening within our Dungannon site. We have diversified our product range with the launch of several new products to the market, and we are now supplying to all the major retailers - Sainsbury’s and Co-op being but a few. The demands that come with growth are always uncertain for companies on new ventures, and we knew that resourcing was going to be a huge challenge; Vickerstock have definitely been a welcome support to Hughes Mushrooms Group to help with the recruitment of a few very exciting appointments. The Vickerstock team are clearly specialists in their field. They take the time to listen to what is needed to help the business succeed, but also help steer the business in the right direction.


“We have now placed Vickerstock as our number one agency for Hughes Mushrooms Group PSL.”

I am delighted to say that because of the great work that has happened over the last year we have now placed Vickerstock as our number one agency for Hughes Mushrooms Group PSL. I look forward to working with Martin and the team, knowing that our company’s best interests are being considered at every stage of each appointment.” Karen McAuley | HR Manager | Hughes Group

Why?

Helping people achieve their aspirations through work is why Vickerstock exists, it is our company purpose. Seems simple – and it is. We are a recruitment agency. At a basic level we help fill roles for our clients so that they can complete their work projects and we help find jobs for our candidates so that they can make ‘one move ahead’ in their career.

Integrity, Knowledge and Hard Work

However, it is not just Why we exist that is important, but also How we go about completing our Why. At Vickerstock we value Integrity, Knowledge and Hard Work. What does that mean? Integrity means ensuring that all parties (our clients, candidates and colleagues) have all the information they need in order to make informed choices. It means respect, complete confidentiality and fair financial dealings. Knowledge is the key to making good decisions, and since we work across many dynamic and ever changing industries we are always learning and sharing our new found knowledge. Hard Work is about putting in the effort to do what you say you’re going to do. It’s about going above and beyond the requirements in order to provide a good service to clients and candidates and also and to help your colleagues.
