They have many excellent contacts, and I have found them to be likeable, professional, and highly efficient. I have no hesitation in recommending them.' (Candidate)

Lucy went the extra mile to ensure she understood me and exactly what I was looking for from a job. When opportunities arose, she carefully explained not only the particular role, but why she saw it as suitable for me and why I'd be an asset to the particular company. When I was about to go for a second interview at a particular company and had some concerns I wanted to discuss, Lucy was on holiday.

Teamwork is most evident within Search and Select - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone or use them again myself in the future' (Banking Candidate)
