Sam is a fantastic person to work with. He genuinely cares about the roles you are looking for and does not stop searching until he finds something that matches your needs.

Sam would never send me a dud role or ignore some of my career designs. Instead, he focused on trying to find a position that suited me. In particular, Sam’s perseverance on multiple opportunities was one of his outstanding qualities.

If a role went quiet, was put on hold or was otherwise unavailable, Sam never forgot and made sure to catch up with me if the role went live once again. Overall a fantastic recruiter with an amazing skill set. Would happily recommend to anyone.
