What our clients say

"Paul found me a dream role and guided me the whole way through the process, with plenty of positive encouragement, insight and advice at every stage. I couldn't recommend him enough!"

- Claims Specialist

"At a time where I had decided to make a career change I was looking for roles for several months but nothing really jumped out at me...mainly due to hesitation and mainly due to fear of the unknown. Paul took time to talk to me and listened to what kind of role I was after....within days he found a suitable role but more than that a suitable company that was offering the role - somehow he knew precisely what I was after...it wasn't just a change in career but a change to working for a company that reflected my values and beliefs. Paul is an intuitive and empathetic recruiter who will find you your perfect employer. During the interview process he kept in touch promptly and was always keeping me updated as to next steps. I hope I never have to use Paul's services again but should I need to, I have every confidence in his abilities and would trust no one more."

- Senior Technical Claims Adjuster

"Paul achieved an excellent result for me when I was recruiting my deputy. Out of the three agencies I approached he was the only person that actually produced several excellent candidates. the other two agencies gave me a pile of unsuitable c.v's to sort out. Paul actually took time to talk me through each candidate bringing the c.v's a positive reality. Truly an excellent service provider."

- Claims, wordings and audit Consultant

"Neal provided a first class level of service throughout the recruitment process. From our initial discussions around the types of role I was interested in, to providing highly detailed explanations of the job specifications that were of interest, the level of support through the interview process and the post acceptance touch points were of the highest quality. I would thoroughly recommend Neal and would not hesitate to use him again in the future in either a hiring manager or candidate capacity. "

- Experienced Finance Professional

"During my search for a new role in industry, Neal was very helpful in reaching out with a role in a great company that suited my interests, experiences and skills. He was very helpful in interview preparations, knowledgeable about the firm and people, and had great communication throughout the whole process. Highly recommended when looking for a position especially in the Insurance and Finance space. "

- Financial Accountant

"Meera was fantastic to work with in assisting me find a new role. Meera provided thorough information on the role and also detailed interview prep materials and always kept me up to date with any feedback. I would highly recommend working with Meera if you are looking for a new job."

- Project Manager

"Meera is an outstanding recruiter. Meera recently contacted me for an opportunity and it was good timing as I was looking for a new role. It was very clear from her first message that she is a thorough processional. Job description had all the details required, the Skills, technical stack, remuneration and all the benefits offered, everything crystal clear and transparent, nothing hidden or requiring clarification. Basically all the i's dotted and t's crossed. After matching my skills, she moved quickly with the feedback and subsequently scheduling all 3 rounds of interviews leading up to the offer. Before all the interview she proactively reached out to help understand what to expect and shared helpful tips and already researched material about the company and even the interviewers. I was just so impressed with just how thorough and helpful she was through every step. I recommend Meera highly to anyone looking for a new career move. You can be assured of a service of the highest standard from a thorough professional."

I’m happy to recommend Lee to anyone looking for a new opportunity or any business looking for new talent."

She was always on top of things and was quick to come back whenever I had any queries! Hopefully I won't have to use her help again any time soon as she has placed me with a Brokers that seems like a perfect fit but I will pass her details on to any one I know that is looking for a job in the Insurance Industry! Thank you again Millie for all your help!"
