HR Generalist

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!

Quality Engineer

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.

Materials Engineer

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.

Electronics Engineering Graduate

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.
