I have known and worked with Liane Stockman for over ten years, and during that time she has been a consummate recruitment professional. She has taken the time to truly understand which roles and companies are best aligned with my career aspirations, and she has placed me in two fantastic roles during this time. Liane is the first person I would go to should I seek a new challenge in my career, and I recommend her to anyone else who values a professional candidate / consultant relationship.

Liane has been responsible for a number of critical recruitment campaigns for me and, on each occasion, has provided not only an exemplary service, but ultimately, superb and successful candidates. I ensure that Liane is consulted first when I have resourcing needs as she takes the time to present solution based proposals, for which she adheres to the principals of customer service and good value. I would not hesitate to recommend Liane to my peers.

Kelci is a pleasure to work with. Her professionalism, follow-up, and genuine interest in her clients needs and interests are world class. While working with Kelci you feel like she is laser focused on your situation which I feel is a lost art in today’s recruitment environment. Her ability to explain the situation, coach and mentor you through the process, and represent your interests with prospective employers is second to none. You cannot ask for better than Kelci!

Working with Sarah was amazing. From the onset she believed in me and put me forward for a new position and got me an interview a week before I eas due to leave the UK. I was lucky enough to be the first candidate the company interview and got offered the job a week later. Throughout the process Sarah was professional, helpful and supportive. I even got a call and email afterwards to check up on me. That's what I call service. Was such a great experience to deal with Sarah and I have appreciated all that she has done.

Sarah and CPA were great during my time job hunting. Sarah especially was really helpful, she constantly kept me up to date with current jobs and when I had an interview she was really great at keeping me informed of how it was going and the feedback from the company.

James is one of the best recruitment consultants that I have worked with. I have discussed a number of opportunities with him over the past few years and have always been impressed by his enthusiasm to unite exactly the right person with exactly the right job. He is an excellent listener taking the time to really understand who you are and what you are looking for and likewise what the role really entails. This in-depth knowledge of both his clients and candidates combined with his professionalism and focus on delivery ensures a positive and successful outcome every time.

Kelci respectfully approached me with an opportunity and helped me through the interview process to my current position. Her professional guidance, prompt communication, and friendly demeanour were instrumental in my decision to pursue the position. I am thankful to have been presented with the opportunity, and more thankful that Kelci was the one to facilitate the process. I am truly happy with my new position!

I worked with CPA earlier this year. CPA successfully found me a very suitable interim position which fulfilled all my criteria.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jaimie in securing a progressive position within my trained industry. I can say she is a consummate professional who has a clear understanding and respect for her clients time,abilities and qualifications. She is very forthcoming and honest with a keen sense for market trends and opportunities. Thanks again Jaimie for all your help.

After first contacting Sarah about a position she was incredibly informative about the job role and she ensured I knew what was going on every step of the way. She was always at the other end of the phone, and very flexible with her communication. I couldn't recommend her highly enough, she made the process of applying for and interviewing for a new job very easy, much more relaxed than I have previously experienced. Thank you so much Sarah!

James, supported me in the acquisition of a new job opportunity during a very difficult time, based on redundancy and change. He showed understanding and compassion to my circumstances while also providing key information and support in my job search for the ideal role. James did not judge me on my CV, he expressed an open mindedness that I had not experienced with other recruiters. James was extremely professional throughout the whole process and communicated with me on a regular basis even when there was little to no news available. If I am every found to be in that predicament in the future of just looking to take the next steps in my career, James would be the first person I would contract, this is based on trust and as mentioned true professionalism.
