What our clients say

I would definitely recommend Sarah. Sarah understood my circumstances and listened to what I wanted in an employer. She did not put forward any employers that did not fit my requirement despite knowing that I had been put on notice of redundancy. Within a week of speaking with Sarah I had attended two interviews, had two job offers and had accepted a position in a firm where I now work and couldn’t imagine working anywhere else. Thank you Sarah for your help!
