In my 10 years in HR Caroline is the most professional recruitment consultant I have worked with - I do not have any feedback regarding what could be improved.

“Caroline Gaunt supported me with the recruitment of a recent candidate and to date Caroline is the most professional recruitment consultant I have worked with. She understood the level of candidate I was recruiting for and after the successful candidate joined, Caroline followed up to see how they were doing. She also called me to check in. I do not have any feedback regarding what could be improved, in my 10 years in HR Caroline is the most professional recruitment consultant I have worked with.”
