  • I have no hesitation in recommending Ross. He is, by quite some distance, the best recruiter I have worked with. 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.
    - Pete Braham, Business Development, Longitude.
  • 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.
