Testimonials

As a lawyer from and qualified in New Zealand who was looking for a vacancy in Edinburgh, I would happily recommend David as a recruiter. I was unfamiliar with the processes and David was very communicative and guided me through the process. He secured several interviews for me and placed me in a job within days. Most importantly, David was very pleasant to deal with.
