  • Kate was very good at building relationships with the hiring manager to understand the type of candidate required. My favourite things were the personal touches, a real understanding of the requirements of the role but also of the less tangible things.
    Katie Bates, UK People & Culture Manager, Coba International Ltd
  • Macildowie screened the candidates thoroughly, not just for job suitability but also for business and team fit. They took the time to get know, not only what the vacancy was, but also who we were as a business, our mission, our vision and how we were looking to grow.
    Natasha Glenn, Credit Control Manager, Citron Hygiene
