Rory was incredibly helpful every step of the way! The preparation and advice he gave me for both interviews was extremely useful and made me feel less nervous going into them. The feedback he gave me after my interviews was also extremely useful and knowing that he was also just in the other side of the phone if I had any burning questions!

  I would highly recommend Georgina. She takes time to get to know and listen to candidates. I valued her advice and help throughout the recruitment process.

Sandra Marchington
