The fastest, easiest, and most effective recruitment process I’ve ever experienced.

Dr. Alistair Livesey, Managing Director

Africa Power Limited

“Callum supported us in a recruitment campaign for a number of finance posts. Having tried previously without success to fill these roles ourselves, Callum identified new sources of potential candidates which has resulted in some excellent appointments. He fully understood our requirements and kept in regular contact as the campaign progressed. This was all despite the added challenges of the lockdown.”

Interim Head of Finance

Reigate & Banstead Borough Council

“Callum has been absolutely fantastic! At the beginning of January 2022 I was in the process of looking for a new role and had mixed results before speaking with Callum. I immediately noticed his personal approach and support throughout the entire recruitment process and within a week he was able to secure me a first interview with a company, followed by a second interview and then I was offered the role which I duly accepted. I cannot thank Callum enough, and would highly recommend him to anyone.”
