“It’s worked well for me and the department, we’ve got some brilliant people through the Job Gym. We’ve taken on ten people so far - it’s helped me to get my costs per hire down by £300 per candidate so that’s had a fantastic impact on the budget.”

Christine Collins, Direct Sales Recruitment Manager, Vitality Health

“We took on 35 people to put into Argos. The fact that they'd been through training with Mantra meant they came ready for work. Compared to others they had a better pick rate - their experience meant they were more productive on the warehouse floor."

Emma Butterworth, Transline for Argos

"I now use Mantra as my primary recruitment tool, giving me access to local individuals wanting to gain or regain full time employment with a career in the distribution sector.”

Danny Thompson, Team Manager, Lidl Runcorn
