Having worked with Nick as a candidate and then very closely as a client, I can honestly say it’s always a pleasure to deal with him. I have moved on but hope that we can work together again in the future. Keep up the amazing work that you do Nick.
David’s advice, experience and knowledge were a great help and gave me confidence when I was still new to the market, and his calls to make sure everything was going okay were a nice touch. If I was considering a career change I would definitely call him first!
Paris found me my first graduate position and took care of everything for me. She rang before my start date to ensure I had all I needed, on my first day to wish me luck, and at the end of my first week. She’s a pleasure to work with and really cares.
David helped me get my first job within the Electronics Industry right after I graduated from university. He also helped me negotiate for my second job. In both instances he was proactive in providing feedback, immediately responded to queries and could easily comprehend my professional and career expectations.

I can’t thank Paris enough for the support given to me. This was not only through the interview process, but also in the subsequent weeks of working at my new employer. I would not hesitate in recommending Paris to anybody seeking a new opportunity.
