The First Choice Team

Tewkesbury Friendly Recruitment Company

  • Judy Jones

    I started a career in recruitment because I wanted to be different from typical Employment Agencies, focusing on being approachable, friendly and providing an honest, ethical and transparent service. My background is in Hotel Management and people have always been my interest and inspiration. It seemed fairly logical to go into Recruitment and I am proud of the high standards and the dedication of my wonderful staff.  Introducing employers to job seekers and fulfilling the needs of both parties is very rewarding and we're good at it too! - This email address is being protected from spambots.

    What our clients and candidates have to say............

  • First Choice Recruitment have placed me on several temporary positions, as well as my current permanent role. They were always cheerful and friendly, and really took the time to get to know me as well as what my strengths (and weaknesses!) were. They responded quickly to inquiries, promptly processed my applications and have fully supported me throughout my employment history. I don’t feel I would have been as confident in applying for my job if it wasn’t for their help, so I am very grateful!


  • Our relationship with First Choice has been an extremely beneficial one. They have on all occasions provided a prompt, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly service supplying both permanent and temporary staff. Judy, Lorraine and the First Choice team exceed all expectations and really are ‘First Choice’ for our recruitment needs.  We first started dealing with Judy and her team when she opened in Tewkesbury some years ago and I think it is a testament to the service that we continue to use First Choice as our preferred recruitment supplier.
