Ani has been great in helping secure a new role, from initial contact through to contract signing, she's been there every step of the way. I've spoken to lots of recruiters, Ani is one of the rare ones who picks up the phone just to check in and see how things are, and make sure everything is going as planned. Thanks for all your help Ani!
