What people say about Roadhogs Recruitment

"The professionalism and friendliness of Liz Barker and Simon Withers from the outset have been outstanding. I will travel to my new home (from South Africa), and hopefully, after my probation period, I will be offered permanent employment. My reason for posting this is to say that should you, friends or family wish to embark on this type of adventure, you will not go amiss by contacting Roadhogs, and I endorse them 100%."
James Riley

"For me, the relief side of it is very handy considering I have my own pigs and compete with them. I can pick and choose when I work and how long I can work for. As long as I am pig clean between my pigs and the clients, it works really well.
There are also fewer worries because everything is sorted, including accommodation. For me, it couldn’t be better being relief pig specialist. 
Liz is always on the end of the phone so if you have any concerns she is there to sort it out." 
Oliver Lightfoot

"I find Liz and her team very organised and professional. I always have work in front of me. I find that Liz and her team care and value their employees and are always on hand to help if there are any problems; professional or personal. I would recommend working for Roadhogs if you want to gain experience in the pig industry with a team that will back you up. The renumeration package is very good and I have been able to save quite a bit."
Mark Laycock

"I am from a foreign country, and working for Roadhogs allows me to have time off. I go back to my country to spend time with my kid, then come back to work. As a Pig Specialist, our expenses (travel, sustenance) are paid for, so I can save quite a lot. Roadhogs always have had a job for me."
Sergiu Turlea

"I joined the Roadhogs Pig Specialist team for the flexibility and ability to use my van to travel around the UK and experience a wealth of different pig farming practices.
I have not looked back.
A very caring, efficient employer and I have to say that Liz and the team do a fantastic job, leaving me proud to be a part of RoadHogs."
