Digital Marketing Recruitment Guide Digital Agency Showcase


Simon was amazing at helping me secure a role in Manchester when I was still living in Australia! Simon was really positive and upbeat about the opportunities and put a range of roles to me that were all fantastic. Most importantly, Simon checked in with me regularly as I went through the interview process, helped work around the time differences and technology issues with interviewing from overseas. I never had to worry about where the process was at, he was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I couldn't have asked for a better recruitment process. I am really excited to be starting my new role, and when the time comes that I need new candidates in my team, I will certainly be asking for Simon's help.
