Testimonials and Reviews for Pitman’s People

We used Pitmans for the first time last year. What a difference from Local labour agencies. Trained staff and with knowledge makes the day so much easier. Great service

Kevin, For and on behalf of Arena Event Hire.

It’s difficult to put into words how pleased we were with the service provided by Pitman’s – every step of the way we felt as though Pitman’s were very attentive to our needs and genuinely cared about the success of our event. The office staff worked hard to match our criteria, providing us with enthusiastic, self-motivated and friendly staff for our event. The whole Pitman’s team work exceptionally well together and it is clear that the employees are valued and respected.

This HSBC Golf Zone has been a phenomenal success, it was the first time we have done anything like this at the British Open… You have been one of – NO! – in fact you are THE best events team we’ve ever had!

I have been with Pitmans People for just over a year now and I can hand on heart say I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! The company as a whole is very well organised, inviting and abundantly professional where necessary. They really take care of the people they work with, whether that entails offering us work or treating us to drinks after the success of a big project. One thing I love most about Pitmans is their ability to balance out a friendly relationship with a high level of professionalism, it is made very clear that the staff want to be as involved in your own success as you do, which is rare in any company these days.

Pitman’s People have provided Accio with on-going support and we have had excellent feedback from all of our foremen, so we can commend Oliver Pitman and the Pitman’s crew for all their hard work.

At London Oktoberfest we have been really pleased with the professionalism and dedication that the Pitman’s People staff have continuously demonstrated during our two year engagement. Pitman’s staff are courteous and respectful, even when the guests are besides themselves with beer and revelry! The customer service that Pitman’s People provide is more than any business person can ask for and we are looking forward to working with them again, for the success of London Oktoberfest is partially due to the help that Pitman’s People provide.

Hallie Barrows, London Oktoberfest

Pitman’s People were friendly, considerate, attentive and professional. I would definitely use them again to represent my company ‘the bouncy castle kingdom’. One attendee of CarFest sent me a note after the event and said:

“Your staff were magic. They were so polite, considerate, child friendly and bubbling with energy, even on day 3! One lovely girl even came down the line, while we were waiting, to say thank you for waiting and it was free.”

CarFest were incredibly pleased with the Kingdom and its staff and they are already talking about 2014.

2012 Olympics

Working in collaboration with Security Force Management, we worked on all the Olympic events not in a venue: Cycle Road Race, Time Trial, Men and Women’s Triathlon and the Men and Women’s Marathons. Creating Crowd and Traffic Management teams of up to 100 people plus per event, we successfully deployed teams in a variety of locations from rural surrey to the gates of Buckingham Palace. Being the first on the ground to implement road closures, it was imperative we got to know our area and the local residents – all of which were very accommodating and kindly made the effort to come out and give our stewards tea, coffee and cake. In return for their kind hospitality, we ensured when the heavens opened, everyone supporting the athletes were kept warm and dry with our emergency ponchos.

Highlight of the event for us: During the Time Trial, one of our security supervisors was on hand and ready to assist when a couple arrived needing to get across the Field of Play as she was in labour! This occurred just before the cyclists entered our Zone. Sam snapped into action and safely directed them across the FOP and out the other side where they reached the hospital just in time for the safe arrival of little Alfie.

Greenwich Summer Festival

Taking place in the beautifully famous Old Royal Navy College in Greenwich, GSF took place throughout July and August on their scenic grounds. Consisting of a week of the English National Ballet, a week’s Comedy festival and a final stint of an ‘Animated Site’ to coincide with the Olympics, this festival was unique, family orientated and a bonus to the Greenwich summer events calendar. Pitman’s People supplied a Security and Stewarding team to man the site 24 hours a day over the six week period. The team, consisting of 25, were personable, customer orientated security personnel who assisted in executing the ‘feel’ for this family event. We are proud to have not only safely secured this busy festival, but also contributed to the overall ambience initially set out to offer its audience.

Pitman’s People are straight forward to deal with, they have good response times to any enquiries we place and help us during the peak season to top up our permanent build crew teams.
