"I've been dealing with Sharon since I joined Simon Carves in 2011. I've always found Sharon to be very insightful and proactive in terms of our recruitment needs. She's always available to provide key and accurate market information. Candidates that are submitted via Sharon are always on brief and are well prepared in terms of our culture and interview preparation. Sharon has since took over the management of our account in November 2012 as a main point of contact and has been a pleasure to deal with and we've built a great rapport. For any further details please feel free to message me."
