“I’ve worked with Paul for over 8 years now, both to find quality candidates that fit our business culture and also my own current position, so I’ve experience on both sides of the interview!  He listens and offers fair feedback, and it feels as though Paul is part of the process rather than purely passing on CVs unfiltered, hoping something sticks.  Paul has brought candidates to us that we wouldn’t necessarily have looked at, and they have turned out to be high performers in our business.  He is my first point of contact when new positions are required or even just being considered. “
