“I have recently worked with Tom and he has helped secure a great candidate for me.
Having never worked with Tom previously, I have been delighted with his professional approach, his integrity and tenacity in staying with and seeing the deal through. The list of candidates supplied were all excellent and I have been really pleased with my final candidate who is now in post. Tom spent a great deal of time understanding my business before putting people forward.
I would definitely use him again and would be more than happy to recommend him to any company looking for his services”
