I would highly recommend Doug if you are looking for someone professional, approachable and someone who will get the job done. Doug approached me with a job opportunity and helped me through the whole process. He was easy to get hold of and kept me up-to-date with what was going on. He made the transition from my old job to my new job a hell of a lot easier!

Chloe Prior

Couldn’t recommend Doug highly enough, he contacted me when I was looking for a step up in my career. We met for an informal conversation and Doug was excellent and hearing my needs for my next role and finding vacancies he had that he thought would suit. This was a breathe of fresh air in comparison with many other consultants who have contacted me trying to push specific roles onto me. We have met on several occasions throughout my transition, he has been great for advice and guidance as well as just a friendly person to catch up with. Would highly recommend Doug to anyone looking to move roles.

Jordan is a dedicated hard working recruiter whose main aims are to keep the client up to date and make the transition process as smooth as possible.

From day one of working with Jordan it is easy to see how focused on finding the candidate the perfect role he is. Spending time to find out my job requirements and then selecting only the jobs that matched.

Working with Jordan was a pleasure and if I am to find myself in a position to use his services again he will be the first person I call.

Will was the key recruiter for my current position of Contracts Specialist in Doha, Qatar. The process was run quite smoothly and this was only possible due to Will’s professionalism and constant willingness to ensure that all questions were answered as swiftly as possible. Will acted as an important bridge between the differences in work ethics and cultures. It was his constant and often daily communication throughout the entire process (approximately 6 months) which made the process less daunting.
