I have found First Engineering to be an efficient, competent recruitment agency who understand that listening is more important than speaking, a trait that many, many recruitment business fail to see. First have consistently produced good quality candidates who, are informed prior to submission of our roles, salaries and locations.
I would recommend them as a high quality technical recruitment business, they have recently helped me in filling a number of roles within our Nuclear team that other recruitment agencies have failed in.
