Severfield has worked closely with Work Matters over a number of years, helping to successfully recruit experienced and professional personnel across a variety of areas of the business. 

Work Matters has a comprehensive knowledge of the structural steel industry and a genuine interest and understanding of how Severfield operates. This ensures that all applications received for opportunities within Severfield are relevant and tailored. 

Due to the specialist nature of our business, Severfield has benefited from working closely with Work Matters to not only meet our short- term recruitment requirements, but also to help plan and deliver long- term objectives.  Work Matters is a responsible, knowledgeable and reliable supplier to Severfield.        



I have used the services of Work Matters for over 15 years and they are my first point of contact when a vacancy arises. 

Their specialist industry knowledge is invaluable and the team truly understands our job functions and business culture.  The applications we receive are always informed, relevant and considered.  Having worked with us for many years their honest, pragmatic approach has resulted in many successful placements and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Work Matters to anyone looking to partner with an external business to support their recruitment function.

General Manager

LCC Communications Ltd


Work Matters have been providing our company with staff for over 10 years.

Having initially given Sarah an overview of where we wished to take our business, she and her team have continued to help us to recruit top quality personnel that meet our specialised requirements. During busy periods particularly, they provide a flexible approach and fully understand what is needed to successfully fill each individual vacancy, sometimes with very limited timescales.

I always appreciate Sarah’s guidance and opinion when seeking advice concerning applicants and we work in a friendly and constructive way to reach positive solutions.

Due to their professionalism and commitment, I have Work Matters to thank for a top quality team of people and have no hesitation in recommending them to other employers.

I first met Sarah from Work Matters when I was looking to recruit staff for a brand new manufacturing plant that was to open in Stockton-on-Tees.

Sarah had been recommended to me by Senior Management acquaintances from Marshalls PLC with whom she had built excellent working relationships with over a number of years in helping them with recruitment matters.

Sarah was able to source excellent internal and external sales staff for the business, these staff soon helped to get the new business up and running. Because of the success at Stockton-on-Tees, Sarah was offered the opportunity to source staff for other areas of our business in Manchester, Wolverhampton and Scotland, all whom proved to be a success.

Sarah has been an essential help with regards recruitment for the business in 2008 and has played a very important role in our company’s growth.

I have 100% confidence in Sarah & Work Matters to help with the recruitment needs of our business going forward and look forward to a long and successful working relationship with her.

I would highly recommend Work Matters to anyone wishing to recruit quality staff for their business.

Managing Director 

International HACCP Certification Ltd


We were looking to recruit somebody for a very specific role, with very specific qualifications and experience necessary for a senior role within our organisation. Our own searches to find someone had drawn up blanks, and that is when we approached Sarah and her team at Work Matters.

From the initial meeting we had, I felt our needs were being listened too, and even though finding the right person for us was like finding a needle in a haystack, Sarah managed to find some great candidates for us to interview.

All of the initial contacting the candidates was handled by Work Matters, and they even assisted in the interview process, something that we felt was invaluable.

And now…6 months after appointing someone through Work Matters, our company is in a great position and growing rapidly. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anybody.
