UK Engage was efficient, professional and very responsive to our needs. They distributed critical materials to 7,000 trade union members to provide information about our recognition ballot, which helped workers to make an informed decision. - Pharmacists’ Defence Association

UK Engage was great to work with. The team had brilliant communication, clarity and speed, which are the characteristics we've been looking for. - BFAWU

UK Engage really impressed us with its obvious research into the Society of Radiographers. The attention to detail is excellent and they encouraged us to carry out an electronic ballot, which has made life a lot easier for us and the membership. We are very pleased with the level of customer service. - The Society & College of Radiographers

Throughout the entire process with UK Engage, the Union found them to be highly professional, very straight-forward, and extremely helpful. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and the support from the account management team was fantastic.
