Since Joining Brunel and the staff I have dealt with have been very professional and I can only put it down to the manager leading by example and has taken his vast experience in the industry with him to Brunel. Therefore I will endorse the experience of this individual and his staff and wish him continued success in this very demanding industry."

"As with many people in the Power Generation Industry I have worked with and for a broad spectrum of recruiters and head-hunters. The manner in which the individual is handled ranges from excellent to deplorable. I have found Ken's approach refreshingly straight and honest and as such I place him and Wild Recruitment in the bracket of excellent. Ken’s technical back ground gives him the ability to relate to issues on the ground, this is supported by his ability to “listen to what you say”. If a question or query arises it is addressed immediately and full support is given to achieve closure. I would recommend Ken to any contractor looking for an agent to work through.
