  • "Over the past six months, since our initial contact, Chris has taken the time to learn about our business and specific company culture and as a result has been able to offer us a fantastic selection of highly suitable candidates for positions that we have had within our organisation. To date, we have employed three individuals via him, but have no doubt there will be more to come. Chris is a pleasure to work with and spends time getting to know all of his candidates and clients well. He is a hugely competent and capable recruiter and I would highly recommend him."

    Group Recruitment Director,
  • “Chris is a professional who knows what he is doing and knows what’s best for others. This was demonstrated by the way he got me a role so quickly. Not only was it done quickly but it was also the right role. He listened to what I was looking for and found a role that not only ticked my boxes but also provides me with growth. If you’re in search of a new role I can highly recommend Chris and would happily work with him again.”

    Previous Candidate,
  • “Chris was great to work with because of his passion, dedication and understanding of a client's needs. I worked with him on what was quite a niche position and he had no problem in understanding this and, crucially, supplying both highly suitable and talented candidates for the role. Indeed, the only problem we had was deciding who to take on! I would recommend Chris unequivocally; he has drive, tenacity and wants to achieve the best for both client and candidate alike.”
