Emma-Claire and Amanda

"I have worked with Emma-Claire for over 15 years and compliment her highly in the way that she builds and more importantly maintains relationships with people - both clients and candidates. She’s committed, highly professional in her approach and in my experience has always followed through and delivered - something that is very much valued! Emma-Claire also has great insight on individuals and this enables her to gauge the ‘fit’ for an organisation very well indeed, which means she is a very trusted advisor on key recruitment matters."
Amanda Baldwin, NED

Emma-Claire and Teri
