Candidate Testimonials


I feel that my consultant knows me and goes through the journey with me, which I think is really important.


“I find Sanctuary Criminal Justice head and shoulders above any other agency I have worked for. The staff are friendly and highly professional in every aspect; they will make regular contact with both the employer and contractor to ensure both are happy with the situation and working environment. I cannot fault my consultant; he is professional, friendly and honest and always keeps me informed. I have recommended Sanctuary to many professionals, and would not choose to work for any other agency.”



“Since I started working with your agency, the continuous support I get from my consultant has made a huge difference. He has made all the arrangements for immunisation, training and was communicating with me at every stage. I had never had this before from other agencies. He even checks on me now and again to find out if I am happy and if there is anything I need support with.

Top marks for professionalism.”



“Before I started my first placement, my Sanctuary consultant worked quickly to make sure that all of my paperwork was updated and correct ahead of my start date; this included organising immunisations and blood tests. The team were incredibly swift, and the overall process was very smooth. Over the past year, I have noticed a similar approach for all placements; they really go above and beyond. As well as preparing me for interviews by giving me all the information I need to research the service and the area, he has even spent time finding out the best places to for me to park my car!

My relationship with my consultant is extremely good and I have great respect for him. He is always happy to discuss potential placements in detail and he understands the challenges that they may bring. It is reassuring to know that I can contact him at any stage and will always get an instant reply. The contract work benefits me greatly as it is enhancing my practice thanks to new experiences and challenges. I have thrived on the variety of services and locations that I have had the opportunity to work in and I would recommend Sanctuary to anyone!”



“I have worked for Sanctuary for almost 18 months and I can honestly say that it has been a great experience. I am now working in my second placement with Sanctuary and it’s been noticeable that both roles have been exactly what I have been looking for. I feel that I have an excellent relationship with my consultant; he takes the time to speak to me before putting me forward for a role and is extremely proactive about supporting me through every step. I also appreciate that he doesn’t forget about me when I am in a placement; he’s taken the time to regularly get in touch to find out how things are going.

My whole experience with Sanctuary has been brilliant. My consultant is an excellent and fair advocate who will always fight my corner whilst staying professional and fair to those companies that he has contracts with. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.”



“My consultant has been helpful, courteous and approachable, which has made the difference to my work with Sanctuary. Not having worked for an agency for some years, I have been impressed by the efficiency of the administration and timesheet systems at Sanctuary and the prompt payments by the payroll partner agency. I have no intention of looking for a new agency as I don't think there could be a better one.”



“I have worked with Sanctuary Criminal Justice since the beginning of 2016. From the start the service I received was nothing but 5*. As I was new to being self employed they gave me advice and guidance which was really helpful. They offered a signing up appointment locally to me which was convenient.

During my time with Sanctuary my consultant was amazing. She got me my first placement at Bench CRC and maintained contact with me throughout, helping with sorting my time sheets, payments and always checking in to make sure everything was ok. She worked tirelessly to get me a placement closer to home in November 2016.

I was never out of work thanks to Sanctuary and really felt that they went over and above to support me. In short I do not have any negative feedback to offer as my experience with Sanctuary and my consultant was excellent and if I returned to being self-employed I would not think twice about calling them again.”


“I was advised to call Sanctuary Criminal Justice by a colleague when I was facing redundancy.  From the beginning, I was impressed with the calm and reassuring approach of my recruitment consultant My consultant, who assured me that work was always available. Knowing this took a lot of stress out of the redundancy process.

She ensured that I gave information on all of my skills and training and was thinking ahead to work coming up which would suit my skill set, particularly within Sex Offender Group facilitation.  Once made redundant I decided to have a few months break before taking up an agency post, and asked to be kept informed of any posts coming up locally.

I received regular emails to my home address advising me of posts.  Once I decided to go back into field team work my consultant found me a post local to my home and arranged an appointment with the manager.  I have been in the same post for six months, and receive regular telephone calls and emails to check on how the placement is going and whether or not I have any issues concerns."


“I've been working for sanctuary criminal justice for around 4 months now, after a lot of deliberation I decided it was time for a career change.  My first point of contact with my consultant was fantastic, super-efficient, helpful and informative.

My position as a community payback supervisor is varied and rewarding. I look forward to coming to work, I get to meet people from all walks of life and run projects covering most off South-East London.

I can't recommend Sanctuary enough. So, if there's anyone like myself thinking of a career change who enjoys a new challenge, give sanctuary a call and change your life as I have.”



“I have been a client of Sanctuary, since May 2016, in my role as a Locum Probation Officer. I can honestly say, that I have found Sanctuary to be a very professional and organised company. As a Locum worker, you need the reassurance, that your weekly hours are submitted quickly, by your agent, to ensure that your wages are paid quickly.

I am very fortunate to have a great agent who is efficient and I know that if I have any concerns or queries, these are sorted quickly and very professionally. I strongly recommend Sanctuary, to any existing or future Locum worker. “



"Sanctuary helped me secure my first temporary position as a Probation Officer with CRC. From my initial contact with my consultant, the process of signing up to my first day on the job was a very quick turnover that went pretty much without any issues. They made the transition from being an employee to a self-employed PO much easier. 

The initial contact was a positive experience, and an email followed the same day as my initial contact with an application form, reference request and a Sanctuary Handbook. The email also contained documentation they required from me to proceed with registration.

An appointment was arranged thereafter for the relevant ID and documentation to be provided, alongside my CV. Soon after I was applying for jobs and having telephone interviews. I secured my first position after my first interview. 

Since commencing my first placement, submitting my time sheets on line is very straight forward and sanctuary staff are always on hand for any assistance. Overall my experience has been very positive, and I have and will continue to recommend their services."
