“It was an absolute pleasure working with Kelly and her team during my recent search for a new opportunity. Her help was invaluable in securing my new position. Kelly provides an exceptional service: detailed interview preparation advice; quick response to emails and voicemails; just the right amount of checking in to see how you're getting on; timely feedback post interviews; as well as being persistent and providing reassurance during what can seem like a lengthy on-boarding process. Kelly and the team are in a different league compared to most of the other recruitment companies I've worked with, and I highly recommend them both.”
