Sarah has been a great support from the moment I first contacted her. She took the time to find out exactly what I was looking for in my next role, to find a role that was a perfect fit. Sarah always kept in touch with new roles and updates on any applications. Sarah’s genuine passion for what she does which shines through. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sarah to anyone either looking to recruit or looking for their next role

Sarah was a fantastic support when I was looking for a new role. She took time out to understand what I was looking for and to ensure a good match for any potential placement. Sarah was very knowledgeable about what was happening in the HR market which proved invaluable. I would have no hesitation in working with Sarah again both in a professional capacity or for my own career search.

Sarah’s customer-centric, personable yet thoroughly professional approach is quite honestly a force to be reckoned with. Sarah was consistently approachable, and the end-to-end experience was very positive; and still maintains contact now, checking how I’m settling in and that for me is value added. I can honestly say i felt like a valued customer and not simply a prospective ‘sale’. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah.
