I have worked with James Constable over the past few months on several recruitment briefs for varied interim and permanent roles. It has been a pleasure to work with a recruitment consultant who has an excellent understanding of the food industry and the roles that we have been looking to fill. For senior level positions, James has conducted a thorough screening, including meeting the candidate face to face, and has therefore been able to provide an excellent shortlist. Some roles have also been urgent, due to an immediate requirement in the business, and James was able to prioritise and help source these roles, whilst not losing focus on the other briefs. I would wholeheartedly recommend James for an effective, efficient and friendly approach to recruitment. Many thanks!
