I couldn't recommend Stevie and also Jack at the candidate enough during the process of acquiring my new position. His friendly, relaxed, but very professional approach really helped in preparing for the interview process and put any nerves I had to bed. I really appreciated the regular updates of progression from start to finish and never felt out of the loop or in the dark. I would definitely approach Stevie again if I seek further employment he and The Candidate provide an excellent service.
