What our clients say

Greg has been extremely pro-active in finding me a great new position with a well regarded local firm. Returning to work after maternity leave in a new area could have been very daunting, especially when I wanted to return to work on a part-time basis to fit in around my family yet still have the opportunities to progress in my career. Greg took the time to fully understand what I was looking for in a new role and made the process very easy, taking away the stress of job-hunting in a new area, and by using his contacts and knowledge of local firms was able to secure several interviews for me within a week at a number of excellent firms in the region. As a result of his pro-active approach, which resulted in two job offers, I have been able to secure a new position which provides the opportunity to continue to develop my career with a leading regional firm whilst maintaining a work-life balance which fits in with my priorities and young family.
