Poppy worked so hard to match the right roles to my skills, experience and my cultural alignment. She knew the team at the role she was recruiting for and took the time to provide background information, advice and support. She dropped me emails of encouragement before interviews and kept me informed throughout the process. She provided a lot of background information on the team and gave me a flavour of the organisation, so that when I received the offer, I had no hesitation in accepting the role. Poppy really took the time to consider which might be the best organisation and role for me and provided me with all the support I could have wished for – it wasn`t just about filling a role as quickly as possible. Thank you so much for a fantastic service, Poppy and DMJ ­– you are definitely a leader in this field.

Tamara Feldman

Senior Assistant Company Secretary, Post Office Ltd

  Leena is my `go to` recruitment agent when looking for a new role. She helped me find my current and previous positions. On both occasions Leena took the time to listen to what I wanted and found the right role for me almost immediately, taking into consideration my long term aspirations and capabilities. Her expertise, professionalism and vision are invaluable, not to mention hard to find.

Alison Skerrit

  Connor has a real understanding of the market but more importantly the needs of the individual. Pairing companies with people in exactly the right way. Incredibly supportive throughout the process, I couldn’t ask for more.
