Perhaps unusually, Ross listens carefully in order to understand the needs of his clients and candidates, thereby ensuring that good matches are made; we are not talking 'spray and pray'. Likeable and on the ball, I hope to work with him again.

  • I cannot recommend Ross enough. He is by far the best recruiter I worked with during my job search. He really took the time to understand my work history and what I was looking for in a new role. He matched me with a great company and provided feedback and professional advice during every step of the process. Thanks again for such a pleasant experience.

    - Natalia Ramirez, Marketing Manager, Google

  • Ross always had my best interests in mind and is a refreshing change away from impersonal recruitment industry norms. He identified a role I would be highly interested in based on my background and went above-and-beyond with help for interview preparation and feedback. Ross was quick and timely with communicating next steps and expectations, always open to questions and checking-in regularly to make for a seamless process between myself, Ross and the agency. Could not have asked for more when looking for a new role.
