What our clients say

Greg Whitaker is a true credit to QED.  Greg contacted me when a position became available one year after first being given my CV.  I have now worked with Greg twice and can honestly say he is amazing.  In 2015 Greg contacted me and I went for an interview with a legal firm  Unfortunately I did not get this position but over one year later another vacancy became available and Greg remembered me.  He called me, talked to me about the vacancy and I was lucky enough this time to secure the position.  I feel it amazing that after over a year Greg not only remembered me, but called me to see if I was interested in being put forward.  After one year people would think "oh she will have a job I will not bother contacting her" but not Greg on the phone immediately and the rest is history.  Greg you are true ambassador for this company and I would most certainly recommend you to any of my friends who are looking for a role.
