Accountant – IndustryCandidate
From my own experience, I can say that Keith is a high level professional in his field. Keith is a very pleasant person to communicate with and most importantly, he has an individual approach to all his clients. Keith does not passively wait for the potential employer to make his choice, but takes an active part in the process, constantly communicating with the employer, doing everything so that his client, as a result, gets a job. Keith very quickly offered me a vacancy that met my requirements and also did everything so that the employer chose me. I was pleasantly surprised by how Keith performs his duties and of course I can recommend him to anyone who is looking for a job. I’m sure Keith will do everything possible to make his client happy. I want to thank Keith again for the work done and the successful result.
Keith was referred to me by a former colleague as I was urgently looking to fill a role in our Accounts Dept. at short-notice. He actioned the process immediately, called onsite to meet me in person, get a feel for the values and structure of the Company. Through his network in the Region and within a matter of days, I was presented with quality candidates and filled the position. The candidate has settled in very well to the role and we could not be happier.
