Dan kindly approached me regarding a job that was available locally. He told me everything I needed to know about it and offered to take the time for 2 phone calls (on separate days) to get to know me more, after submitting my cv he’s keeping me upto date with the process.

I have dealt with Greg for some years now. Every time we have conversed Greg has been absolutely brilliant. Passionate about his job and always striving to get the best position to suit my requirements. Friendly with a brilliant sense of humour. And very very understanding. Always follows up for you. Never forgets about the people he deals with. I cannot fault Greg.
