"100% satisfied. The service level was exceptional, probably the best I have ever known in my 25-year career. From initial contact, speed of service, communications, and preparation for the interview, the service level was first class.
Just a big thank you, to Karen Rich, for a first-class service and helping me land my new role at Babcock Vehicle Engineering in Walsall."

I cannot recommend Karen enough. Job searching is stressful enough but Karen made it so easy. She kept me informed on the entire process, got feedback for me from interviews very quickly. Even after I got the job, she kept in touch with me throughout my notice period. Karen also had a call with me before my interview to give me some pointers. I cannot recommend Karen enough, making job searching very easy!
