Being a sales director at Abacus means no day is ever the same. I’m either working with the teams in one of our branches helping them to develop new business or spending time on site with our key accounts to ensure we are giving the best service possible. I’ve worked in recruitment since ‘96 and with abacus since 2004, so it’s a massive part of my life. I love it. Weekends with the family, watching my boys play footy followed by a dog walk and a pub stop enroute keeps me sane!Read More

Just wanted to know what the protocol is regarding my P45. As you are aware, I've finished my time at Harrods, and would like to know if it would be possible for you to send it out to me? I would also like to thank both you and Kate for your continuous help and support during my time at Harrods. It was a fantastic place to work with an amazing team, and thanks to Abacus, I have more experience in the industry.
I really can't fault Abacus, there's always work going somewhere that suits me and I can safely assume that I will be in some kind of employment without needing to chase people up constantly. Easily the best agency I have used. I have been working weekends for you guys for about 6 years now. Everyone at Basingstoke is fabulous esp Paige. No problems what so ever!
