After approaching Ian on LinkedIn I was immediately impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of the digital sector. Taking a much more consultative approach than the majority of the recruiters I'd previously dealt with, Ian took the time to get to know me and asked about my 10 year career plan. From our face to face chat Ian was not only able to recommend agencies that were a good culture fit, but also agencies that would help me to get where I wanted to be further down the line. Within a few days I'd had my first interview with a prospective agency. A second round interview and an assignment later I had a job offer on the table. Thanks Ian!

I've worked with Ian over the last couple of years to secure a range of high quality calibre staff. Ian's instinct understanding of our business requirements and his ability to intuitively know the candidates which would suit was tremendous and allowed us to only interview those individuals who would fit our culture and requirements. Throughout all our dealings, Ian was incredibly proactive and delivered what he promised. I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending him and would hope to work with him again as and when we have recruitment requirements.

We believe in what we call The Real Network. It's our guiding principles when it comes to resourcing and it really sets us apart.
