Genuinely can’t rate Gemma highly enough. Job hunting can be such an arduous task but Gemma alleviated so much with her help, drive and passion in her own personal role. Whilst being completely professional Gemma was also extremely friendly and a delight to engage with throughout the process. Thank you Gemma!
