My experience of working with Seamus was exceptional. From initial contact until he successfully placed me into a new management role. After working in the one company for 25 years which closed down, and being at the back-end of 50 years of age, I didn’t believe I would be able to get a new position, but Seamus told me differently, and he was confident that he could find a new role for me, he consistently supported me in my applications. He went above and beyo...

From start to finish Seamus was professional and demonstrated great attention to detail. I highly recommend him for anyone...

He made me aware of the job role, the interviewers and sent me background on the company. He kept me in the loop throughout the whole p...

Brenda was a great help to me in attaining my current role. Brenda contacted me about with a few possibilities originally, and we agreed the role that seemed the best fit for me. Unfortunately the role was put on hold for a period while other positions were filled, but Brenda was brilliant in keeping me updated about the position and feedback from others she had placed in the company. Eventually the role came up for interview again and Brenda had an interview arrang...

Recently, I made the difficult transition of moving into the Biopharma sector, having not worked in a highly regulated environment before. Equally, I was facing redundancy as my current company is ceasing its operations. Suzanne was critical for me in making this difficult transition. She negotiated difficult terms and gave me crucial feedback after the 1st round interview, which I then used in the final round. When I received a counteroffer from a rival, she negoti...
