Emma has placed a number people into our business including recently 2 site leads.  On every occasion she has taken the time to fully understand our business and the specific needs of the roles.  She is very well connected across the industry and her extensive experience in recruitment really shows.  When necessary she has actively listened to feedback from early candidates when proposing more candidates for consideration.  Emma handles all recruitment in a professional manner making working with her easy.  I am also aware that Emma always works professionally with potential recruits as well as the organisation she is recruiting for.

Amy has for several years been an excellent recruiter in the Food Industry. Amy's True North Talent secured for me my latest contract, with excellent communication and understanding throughout the process. Amy's understanding of my own extensive career and the key attributes of the candidate her client required, helped to ensure she connected the right person to the right job.
