  1. Keith Smith, Community Engagement Manager at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home
    "Professional and supportive" I have been employed in the same job for the last 10 years and felt to push and challenge myself I needed a change of direction. I posted my C.V on an employment website regarding my interest in a post. Within a short space of time I received a phone call and had an over the phone assessment. Within days I was notified that I had an interview. Becky helped me prepare for my interview very well and on the same day I was promptly called to say that I was offered the job.

    Becky approached me at an opportune time to find a new position, and then provided an excellent background to both the position and the company to ensure my success at interview. The thorough understanding of both the position on offer and my own skill set made for a good fit for both parties, and I hope to be able to use her services again when the time comes to make a further move in my career.
