"John provided excellent service as a recruiter. Not only did he and his team find a top class range of potential applicants but he took the time to develop a deep understanding of the position, context and the type of person needed. He also has a great deal of knowledge and connections. He is patient and diligent and very personable. I would highly recommend working with him."
