"I would just like to say what an efficient and professional service I received from Ruth Proctor.
She first contacted me within minutes after I had sent in my CV by e-mail. She was very friendly and polite and went through in detail with me what kind of employment I was looking for. She made me feel very comfortable and was very easy to talk to.
Within a couple of days she had arranged an interview for me. She kept me updated at all times by e-mail and by telephone. After my first interview, she contacted me immediately to arrange a second interview for me and I am pleased to say I secured the position as legal secretary and commence my new employment on the 6th March 2019.
I will definitely recommend your Agency to friends and family and would not hesitate in contacting Ruth again in the future".
