Based in the historic market town of Chepstow, Nu-Staff are dedicated to providing a quality range of flexible solutions to meet the recruitment and development needs for our clients and candidates across South Wales and England. We help employers across South Wales, Bristol, The Forest of Dean, Avonmouth and Gloucestershire to find the best candidates and help potential employees find the perfect job to suit their lifestyle. Unlike other agencies, our focus is on finding the best people for the role rather than sending the most amount of people to be interviewed. Our group mission is integral to everything we do, we resource and develop our candidates to deliver a positive impact for our clients, exceeding typical industry standards. This mission is built on our foundations of teamwork, openness, support and trust

The Managing Director, John Scriven, established NuStaff in 1993 after a career in the engineering industry. Since then the business has gone from strength to strength. Over the past 25 years, NuStaff has been making a difference each day, every day. Whether that difference is delivering operational cost savings for our multinational and local clients to securing employment for candidates at a career crossroads. Whatever your needs Nu-Staff can offer a solution.

What makes us different?
Despite growing in number we still pride ourselves on the personal touch. We have been told that we are approachable and friendly and we want to keep it that way. At NuStaff we’re like a family; some of our newest employees worked with John over 18 years ago and have come full circle.

A huge advantage of working with us is that we employ our temporary staff directly. Taking away the hassle of things like payroll, pensions and holiday pay; instead, we invoice you as a supplier. For candidates this is also a bonus; if you feel that the job you’ve been placed in isn’t a good fit for some reason then we are able to find you something else instead without the paperwork usually involved in leaving and starting a new job.

We also span a range of industries which means that our vacancies are varied and our candidate skillsets are too!
