Senior Consultant & Development Lead (Contractor)

“InfoSec People recruited me back to Detica in 2009 and they are that rare thing – a Recruitment Consultancy who isn’t just playing the numbers game. They worked hard to find the right opportunities and were open and honest along the way. I would happily use InfoSec People for all my future engagements if it were possible because I know I’m dealing with people who operate with the highest integrity and have my best interests at heart. I have recommended InfoSec to several colleagues and I have yet to hear any of them disagree with my assessment, regardless of if InfoSec People have been able to place them or not.”
