I mainly worked with Sam during my recruitment process. He was well organised, highly professional and communicated very efficiently. But what impressed me the most was his knowledge of the company he’s recruiting me for and the role I’m taking. Thank you. Shokri Othman – Clinical Nurse Practitioner (Oncology).

He was knowledgeable, honest about my capabilities, and achievable salary.
