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.

Kyle was very professional in the way he conducted my interview. He asked questions on my experience on where I had worked over recent years. I answered questions that he related to. Kyle mentioned that he would forward my CV to the client and would keep me undated as things progressed.

I have worked with Dan many time to source Techs for me, and to forward cv's to him. This time he has contacted me for a position suitable as a promotion for myself. He gave very good advise on how to tweak my CV to best gain a chance of interview. many thanks to your very professional set up and no matter how my own scenario pans out I'm very sure we will carry on as we started.
