SOC Manager

“…During this particular round of prospects, InfoSec People were one of four different recruiters I was dealing with, and two of the four recruiters did not provide me with an end-to-end experience. What Chris and the team at InfoSec People did for me was to keep me posted. Plenty of follow up calls and encouraging advice, whilst listening carefully to my requirements and any concerns that I voiced. The bottom line for me was simple, I felt I was treated as importantly as the clients that InfoSec People were looking to make placements into.”
