I can't explain how grateful I am to Connor. The whole journey from first call to induction went very smoothly. Connor was outstanding - he made sure I was looked after in the best possible way through every call and message. The card with best wishes made me feel amazing because I wasn't expecting it at all. I was great to meet Connor, and I hope he keeps up the magnificent work he is doing. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have been offered a job!
