Will always be there when you need her, passing her confidence to you and making communication be so easy and relaxed.

Chris Williams, Senior Customs and Compliance Manager - Candidate

After returning to work from having my second child, it was extremely important to me to find a role with progression and opportunity, as well as find the work/life balance needed, being a parent of two young children. Michaela contact me and we spoke in great length about my previous career history and experience and also ensured she had a full understanding of what I wanted to achieve in my next role. She then create a personal profile for me which had everything I wanted to get across to potential employees and I could not have been happier with the information she put together on my behalf. After sending my profile out to a large database of her clients, there was a very quick response and Michaela had secured me several interviews all in roles which would allow the flexibility I needed around my family, as well as offer me plenty of career opportunities. I am now Head of Sales for a logistics company and could not be happier. I could not recommend Michaela enough and so grateful for the attention and detail she put in to my profile and finding me my new job.
