Cyber Security Practitioner - Contract

“Ben as a recruitment consultant is one of the best I have used. His openness, attention to detail and understanding of not only his requestor client’s needs but also my needs as a supplier contractor are well understood, matched and balanced to meet all parties needs. He’s not a recruitment consultant who is all for his requestor client but also looks after his contractors and is honest with his communication and setting expectations. As a top tier talent recruitment consultant, he doesn’t treat his contractors as a commodity and takes time to build and maintain relationships.”
