Strategic Manager Candidate

Emma is an excellent recruitment consultant. She took great pains to understand what I was looking for and to match it to an ideal opportunity. During the recruitment process she made sure I was always aware of what stage the process was at and actively kept the process on track and progressing at a pace I was happy with. Emma was genuinely concerned with placing me in a role that would give me what I was looking for, in my case a better work/life balance. I would happily recommend Emma to anyone seeking a new position.
