Testimonial 

I had the pleasure of working with Neil at the beginning of this year. I have to say that the collaboration was top notch from the first minute. I’ve dealt with other recruiters in the past, but Neil is by far the best I’ve ever worked with.

Neil always took great care of me and was always available. His tips and support during my interview process were always very helpful and gave me confidence.

The collaboration was always very professional and friendly. It was like working with a friend and I always felt I was in very good hands. With Neil's help, the collaboration led to a positive result as I got the job. It was really exciting and great working with Neil and I’m very grateful for his efforts.

Without a doubt, Neil is a talented and enthusiastic recruiter. I hope we stay in touch.
