I don't have enough positives to describe my recruitment process with Therese. From the initial call to go over the role to interview prep and feedback, she was proactive, positive and affable throughout. My only hope is to have a recruiter so invested in my placement when I take the next step in my career.

Ross McDermott, Quality Officer, APC Ltd
