What our clients say

Green Park Recruitment

Matt Eastwell, Head of Pay & Billing

I have worked with JSA (now Workwell) since 2019 and they have been a constant support to me in every business I have worked for in the recruitment sector. Workwell have provided tailored advice & support on the many legislative changes over recent years with no obligation of business or PSL status, just honest, practical advice. They have followed all of our company policies regarding consultant interaction, maybe to the detriment of their own business, however this has allowed them to become trusted and reliable business partners and not just another umbrella company.

Carrington West

James Fernandes, Managing Director

At Carrington West we only ever recommend quality, compliant & excellent service level payroll providers to our contractors. We are, therefore, delighted to have Workwell as part of our PSL and owul have not hesitation in recommending their services to other staffing agencies.

Savant Recruitment

Mehran Yadegarl, Director

I have been working with Workwell (formerly JSA) for a number of years seeking their advice and guidance on patrolling challenges on behalf of our clients & candidates. I have been thoroughly impressed by their professionalism and attitude to go the extra mile in understanding your exact needs and suggesting the right solution every time. I would like to whole-heartedly recommend the services of Workwell to other clients and candidates.

Empowering Learning

Darren Murphy, Managing Director

We have worked with Workwell (formerly JSA) for a number of years and they've always provided outstanding service to our staff and candidates.
