“You did an excellent job on our assignment. You researched the market well and came up with a diverse and high quality candidate list. All the candidates felt briefed and screened and you did a great job of persuading me to see a couple of more leftfield options! I found your pre-interview briefing on each candidate to be well considered and insightful. Your post-interview analysis and handling of candidates was astute and gracious and presented our Theatre in a favourable light. Your handling of the final salary negotiations was effective and timely. Thank you."
