Candidate Testimonials

As a contractor, I've had my fair share of terrible experiences with recruitment agents.  Pestering me constantly, fishing for leads, sending me totally inappropriate opportunities and just generally wasting my time.  Alex does none of these things.  She is utterly professional, courteous and does her job incredibly well and I have no intention in highly recommending Alex to anyone looking for a great recruiter.

Jason Georgiades

Sitecore Consultant

I felt that Damien listened to what I wanted and was a good go between employer and employee to help both parties get what they want.  I would work with him again.

Phil Gainely

Sitecore Architect

Few recruiters take the time to understand their clients, potential clients, the technologies that they cover and the detailed nature of the roles that they recruit for.  Alex understands her CMS and Sitecore niche extremely well and often attends related technical and marketing user groups.  She has a good feel for the level of the ability of potential candidates and as such can make sure that only suitable candidates are put forward for available roles.  She has built a good rapport with both clients and candidates and is well respected in the industry within which she operates.  I would definitely recommend Alex to any organisation seeking to fill a role or to any potential candidates.

Mobeen Anwar
