About us

About us.

Our goal is to get the best out of people and provide you with workers that can carry out and progress in your job roles.


We  look for those workers who are willing to show reliability, punctuality and a good work ethic and have proved their loyalty in order to reap the full benefits a career can offer.

We have learned that those qualities are most often found in people who perceive that they  have been given 'a second chance' in life .

We are working  in a partnership  with Social Bite to help the disadvantaged get  into employment .

The purpose,

Typical recruitment agency practice squeezes as many hours as they can from low-skilled workers, without offering them the opportunity to progress in work. It’s all about filling a job order to maximise their profit.

We aim to not follow  this model. We ensure they have a chance to get better and gain new skills. In turn they can increase their earning potential, progress in their career, and improve their lives.

We do this by investing in practical and attainable training and skills development. So that:

Your workers' skills and levels of productivity increase.

Your staff retention improves, saving you time and money.

You get the opportunity to keep the trained worker on a permanent contract.

the desired impact,

By creating a strong partnership with us, you can improve the lives of workers faced with being stuck in a low-wage and insecure job, with no progression opportunities.


By doing this you’re improving your skill gaps or shortages, while

impacting your local community. A double win over your competition.

and the people behind GYOT.

Brian and Ian  are united by the simple belief that recruitment agencies must collaborate with employers and workers on a personal and human level.


This belief became a simple equation: by developing the local workforce, employers get greater value for their money, workers improve their quality of life, and a genuine social and economic impact is achieved.
