  • I would like to mention Ed Smith; one of your consultants who I have been working with for the last couple of years. He has helped me on a number of roles and no matter what the position, he stands out as a recruiter from all the agencies we use on our PSL. I have given him so many different roles and I don’t know how he does it, but always produces great quality candidates, managing the process with the utmost professionalism. A few months ago I recommended him to my colleague who had a project starting in Germany and again, Ed out-shone every other consultant/agency working on it. He is so professional and efficient – he is always my first call when I am realising a position.
