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...
I met Seamus while searching for a position in the scientific industry. He supported me on a number of aspects including highlighting roles which would be suitable to my skill set, guiding me through an aptitude test and preparing me for my subsequent interview all of which led to my being offered a contract of employment in the science sector. From start to finish Seamus was professional and demonstrated great attention to detail. I highly recommend him for anyone...

Seamus was a great help throughout the process from application to interview, to find out whether I was successful or not (which I was). He instilled confidence in me from the beginning, selecting my CV as an ideal candidate for the role. He is very professional in the way he conducts his work and discusses everything on your level. 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...

I thoroughly enjoy working with Suzanne, her friendly, inviting nature and high spirits really help promote trust between both parties throughout the process. Aside from her impeccable people skills, Suzanne exercises a professional and educated ma...
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...
