Client testimonials

Occupational Therapy Manager

“Tripod Partners are the only agency who have been more than able to successfully meet my professional needs over the past 7 years with their extensive knowledge and experience of matching my varied range of skills and knowledge with recruiting managers. I currently use another five agencies and Tripod are head and shoulders above these. They are very personable and take their role very seriously, ensure that the assignment is about the person involved and can virtually guarantee a successful experience for the locum and the recruiting manager because of their capabilities.

This has also worked where I have had to take on the recruiting manager’s role and they have always located excellent staff members for particular posts. It is all down to their excellent listening skills, patience, flexibility and availability. Tripod has an extensive bank of experienced professionals to link roles to ones on offer. I would recommend this agency to meet an organisation’s solution as they attract excellent health professionals, such as OTs.”

Physiotherapy Manager

“Tripod Partners are very experienced in recruiting for Physiotherapists. Some agencies who are not experienced are unable to provide candidates with the skills and experience required. As a manager it is essential that time spent recruiting is productive. Tripod Partners always react responsively and quickly providing high quality and appropriate candidates. They are always friendly, helpful and professional. Locums recruited through and with the support of Tripod, in my experience, have been of a high calibre and have quickly settled in and performed at excellent levels.

I have no hesitation in recommending them to support recruitment. I would be most concerned at losing this expertise from the recruitment market and the subsequent impact it could have when recruiting.”

Speech and Language Therapy Manager

“I have broad experience of agencies both as a locum and as a recruiting manager. I choose Tripod as they are amongst the most professional of the agencies. They offer a personalised service and are always responsive.”

Lead in Echocardiography

“I recently went to all framework agencies as I was in urgent need of an Echocardiographer to help with our outpatient list. The consultant that I work with at Tripod had sent me suitable locums before any other agency had even taken the time to reply to me. In my years as a hiring manager this has been the smoothest hiring process I have ever had. I would highly recommend them and plan to continue using them in the future.”

Radiology Services Manager

“One of my first port of call whenever I need locum is Tripod Partners. The team are helpful, flexible and sympathetic to the needs of the department and are honest about the capabilities of who they provide, so there are never any surprises! So impressed am I by their radiographers, I have gone on to recruit several of them to my own staff!”
