  • Michael is one of the good guys, it's very rare these days to be kept informed by a recruitment agent at every turn when you are trying to hunt down a new role. Michael didn't only find the perfect role for me, he sold me to the client and made the whole process seamless from start to finish. I would have no problems whatsoever having Michael represent me again or recommending him to anyone who is looking for a role. Thanks again Michael!
