“I have been using Renard regularly for about 6 months after using a previous agency. I have found with Renard you can contact somebody at any time and you get a quick response, this has helped me and my Sous Chef a great deal when a member of the team has called in sick early in the morning. Being able to contact someone has helped minimize the time it takes to get the agency staff to us previously sometimes I had to wait until 10.30am before they had arrived. Over the past 6 months me and my Sous chef have built up a good relationship with Nicola she understands the standard of staff we expect and nine times out of ten delivers this but on the odd occasion when we have not been happy she deals with the issues and sends somebody else instead. On personal experience I have notice the quality for agency staff from Renard is of a much higher standard than the previous agency I was using especially at late notice.”
J. Walter Thompson London - Head Chef
“I appreciate the work of Renard Resources supplying BDP with casual kitchen porters and chefs. I repeatedly booked the same people and there has never been a problem getting them even on a short notice. Renard Resources seems to have a good stock of staff available to cover for any events and happenings. When I was not satisfied with a kitchen porter once, they were able to replace him the following day. That secured a smooth running operation at BDP. I wish Renard Resources all the best with their business and look forward to keep working with them in future.”

“Having been with H & J for 19 months I believe I am in a good position to offer an un-biased opinion on Renard resources and the service that they give to us on a regular basis. I think we have an excellent working relationship with Nicola and the team, we more often than not unintentionally spring rather a lot of last minute bookings on them which I have to say, they always go beyond to fill. I use them in the Writs restaurant for Kitchen Porters and Junior Chef positions and in general I can say the calibre of staff we are sent is good, on occasions we have issue with English speaking staff, I know full well they will always endeavour to supply English speakers, it is generally when we issue a last minute request and we are always informed and offered the choice of a yes or no, which I think is admirable given they could potentially lose the booking. Very happy to have Renard on board.”

“We moved to Renard for our FOH staff and have not looked back, their service is second to none – they go out of their way to ensure we get staff who know the site and are suitable for this environment. On the rare occasion we have an issue, they are always extremely quick to respond and resolve. One thing which sets them above the rest is the fact they offer us ‘free trials’ for their new staff, we then we report feedback back on how they got on.”
J. Walter Thompson London - Office Services & Comm General Manager
“Renard provide us from time to time with staff. The staff they send are well presented and turn up on time. We have never had any issues or problems using Renard or their staff and I would recommend them to others in the industry. They display great professionalism in the way they deal with us, they communicate very well with us and are punctual in there invoicing”

“I have found Renard very helpful during the 2 years I have been at CMS. They always get me the best staff possible which really helps. Every Friday I now get the timesheets filled in, I check & send them back, this saves my team & the agency person valuable time. They are always available to help & a very friendly bunch”

“I have used Renard Resources for a few years now with H&J. I have never been let down by the service or the quality of person sent to me to work. I have had some long time bookings with you guys which I still use now. Mainly Ola the KP. A fantastic addition to our team in our time of need. Renard's have not let me down in my time with H&J. Most reliable and consistent. ”

I’d just like to mention how great it’s been working with Renards for the past six years. I’ve been using your services and staff continuously here at Lewis Silkin for the last two years and prior to that I’ve used you before within other sites. You are always great at sending out last minute staff for both the back of house & front of house. If we’ve ever had a problem with a staff member you’ve sent us then you’ve always managed to sort this out straight away for us. Also, if we’ve requested to have a certain person back on site, Renards always goes out of their way to try and make this possible. Thank you very much for working with me over the last few years and looking forward to working with you for many years to come.

“I have been using Renard Resources for the last two years whilst employed as the head chef at 41PP. The quality of staff have always been good, well turned out and punctual. Even when I’ve had to ask for last minute requests Nicola and the team are happy to help us out. I am more than happy with Renard and will continue to use them as my preferred Labour agency.”
41 Portland Place - Head Chef
“We had used Evolve and Admiral when first opening the site but after a number of performance problems, lack of professionalism and client complaints about the standard of service, we decided to meet with Adrian and Nicola. We now use Renard for all agency staffing: staff restaurant cover, chefs, kitchen porters, hospitality servers and butlers for VIP events. They are better value for money, our head office contacts are polite, professional and happy to take feedback about the people sent to us and if there are any problems, Nicola, Adrian and Titus deal with them promptly. We especially get positive feedback about Gaeton, our go-to butler

Renard is a very trustful and helpful agency. They are doing their best to make your work experience as good as possible. You get to work at 5 star venues and meet people from different countries and cultures. And it´s most likely that you get to meet high profile people like moviestars, writers and royalties. Renard is always flexible, which in turn, gives you a flexible living. It´s easy to sign up. Speak and understand English, answer a few questions about hospitality/catering and then smile for a photograph!

Aladino's restaurant has been a client of Renard since 2015, and we are delighted to report that they are by far the favourite recruitment firm we have ever dealt with. Their service is impeccable and reasonably priced, and their outstanding candidates are a clear indication of how much effort they regularly put into vetting them. The breadth of skills and roles they cover is very impressive. Finally, their staff are always eager to help your business needs, as soon as you ask, and no request is too small or too difficult for them to accommodate. They make a special effort to understand your needs and fulfil them. Our partnership with them is set to continue growing stronger as our business expands.

Totally recommend them. We normally use Renard to recruit our chefs, managers and waiters. They have the best professionals.

Corney & Barrow - Development Chef
As part of our commitment to recruiting high calibre individuals we considered a variety of recruitment consultancies to assist us with our recruitment of Senior Management Positions at The Kia Oval. During our research we came across Renard and Christine Oddy and from the first initial contact I could not have been more impressed. My brief was listened to and all of the right questions were asked. The CV’s and candidate profiles were delivered in a professional manner and in a timely fashion with all of the appropriate information I needed. Throughout the lengthy interview process Christine was on hand to assist and guide us with her professional insight into the strengths and weaknesses of all of the candidates. I found myself in the unusual position of having 3 or 4 candidates that I would have offered jobs to and this is down to the hard work that Christine put in to find the appropriate people. I have no hesitation in recommending Renard to any organisation and will definitely use them as a recruitment partner for future vacancies at The Kia Oval
