Why work for us

"I’ve really enjoyed my time working for 24/7. I feel valued in what I do, supported in my work, confident in the training and the terms and conditions are probably the best you will find for the type of work. It’s more like being a family than a job."

"I am new to the area of Dorset and have found this kind of work has been the best way to get to know my surroundings and meet new people. Justin is always at the end of the phone or quick to email if you need any support. I drive a new car with all the comforts of an easy drive. I would highly recommend working with us."

"Well 10 months into my employment with 24×7, it’s proven to be the right decision to work with Justin. From early informal chats through to interviews and then the first route, it’s been a great process. The additional bonus is of course the decent fleets of fully loaded cars, holiday pay and detailed payslips showing hours worked. All in all, a great company."
