Throughout the process, literally from start to finish, Luke was fully engaged, available, well informed (from both sides) and ensured that I had all the information that I required to make the best judgement for my career. There was no ‘push’ – just a genuine desire to get the right person with the right cultural fit for his client. It was a totally refreshing approach and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Luke, nor use his talent to recruit in future”.
