I would definitely recommend Dave, professional and friendly throughout the whole process.  Great communication, kept me up to date at every stage of the process and I had follow up calls post-appointment, very reassuring.  I would happily work with Dave in future.

The support and guidance I received from Dave from the onset was brilliant.  He was there every step of the way to ensure that, what could be often be a stressful experience of going the new job process, was as painless as possible.  Always contactable and friendly.  Thanks Dave.

Dave was the recruitment specialist who dealt with my move to alternative employment in December of 2016.
Dave was the consummate recruitment specialist and maintained constant contact with both me and with my potential employer. He ensured that confidentiality was maintained and even had a hand in organising an out of hours interview to tie in with my current employer’s work schedule, something that many other recruitment specialists were unwilling or unable to do.
Once I had been offered an interview Dave made sure I was informed of the time, location and probable length of the interview and ensured that I knew where I was going and who I was meeting at interview.
Following interview and offer of employment Dave ensured that references were obtained whilst maintaining confidentiality until I had discussed my resignation with my current employer but also while advancing the references from others who were able to provide such references without delay or the need for confidentiality or sensitivity.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave to any potential applicant or employer as I am sure he made the process as trouble free for my new employer as he did for me, the applicant.
