Abacus is a pleasure to deal with, our Account Manager Sarah is often based on site and ensures she understands our recruitment plans and will deal with anything required. I can rely on Sarah at Abacus to supply Home Bargains with professional drivers. They understand driving legislation and this gives me complete peace of mind. If I need a quick response, they are at end the phone, or down here to see me straight away, always happy to help. They know exactly what I need and the standards I expect and Abacus always deliver.
