Don't take our word for it...

  • Once again, I just wanted to say thank you for all your support so far with our Head of Credit Risk role. As an agency recruiter for many years my expectations are naturally very high and you always deliver good candidates with an exceptional CV layout which stops me from having to ask multiple questions about salary, skills or location. I value your professional and warm nature in comparison to the aggressive and obtuse way other recruiters speak to me. It goes a long way and is appreciated.
