Friendly, professional, prompt responses and if Alex was not available, I always had another contact. Alex discussed candidates and did not push for an interview if we felt the candidate did not fit our requirements

Julie was always available when needed and the timings were good. The candidates sent were suitable for our requirements. If I needed help with recruitment again, I would not hesitate to work with Howett Thorpe.
