“Having had a working relationship with Karen over several years now, I can say with great authority, that a better business partner you will not find. She understands not only the financial world but takes great interest and understanding of all industries, hence getting perfect fits for all our roles we put through her. I cannot recommend her enough, you will not be disappointed in her professionalism, attention to detail and thought”.

Recruitment Manager I Engineering business

"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."

David Grundy | Finance Business Partner

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!
