David was fantastic while assisting me with my unique circumstances in relation to my recent job hunt. I made a difficult decision career wise and he was fully supportive and encouraging in that respect as well as working hard to (successfully) find me a role which fulfilled my new goals.
David was nothing short of brilliant. The current climate is an unsettling time for everyone and when you are looking for your next role, even more so. It was great to have someone that was so switched-on and able to think outside of the box. Communication is key for me and I really found that David kept me in the loop and had a real knack for matching candidate with client. I was looking for a move away from my current practice area and secured my first in-house role. Great result David!
