Working with David Jolley was different from any other recruitment experience I have had. It felt like we were teammates working in the same project towards the same goal, which in effect was the case, to ensure that the company and me make a good fit. We had an open and friendly working relationship, making the whole experience truly enjoyable. He ensured I went into conversations with the company well informed and acted in both my interest as well as the company’s. This overall positive, happy experience has partially influenced me to take this offer instead of a competing one. I want to wholeheartedly thank David and wish all candidates and companies the best, who have the good fortune to be working with him.
