Marc was a fantastic person to work with. As a recruiter he maintained a highly professional demeanour and was always very friendly. Marc was very quick in identifying the kind of role I would fit in, recognising my strengths and putting me forward for exactly the right job. He was always there to help me throughout the process and was a very approachable person, demonstrating professionalism and passion for his job. I could not recommend Marc more highly.
