​Recently Ryan has helped me secure a placement with a company that I’m thrilled to be joining. Ryan took the time to understand what I was looking for and put me in touch with a number of companies which have a similar ethos to what I wanted. He was always available, helpful and informative and was always quick to getting back to me and sharing feedback. Not once was I unaware or unsure of what was happening, not once was I pressurised or pushed into any decision. He always briefed me on the company before he started the process and got the wheels in motion to make sure I was comfortable. Ryan spoke to me constantly and got to know me a little. Taking the time to speak to me is why he fully understood what I was after. I’d fully recommend Ryan to any of my peers and recruitment agencies looking to hire. There are many Rec2Rec consultants out there, but there are far less and not many that will compete or even come near to level of service I received. Thanks again Ryan you’ve been great!

By the end of my first discussion with Mike I was interested and excited to speak with my current employer. Throughout the whole process Mike has been professional, knowledgeable, reassuring and personable. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a new role and likewise anyone needing assistance with their company recruitment needs.

​Working with Michael was an overall outstanding experience, I was made redundant from my last role and had a two week holiday. By the time I got back Michael had set up a week of interviews for me and after the end of that week landed my role at Talent! All the roles he presented exactly matched my skills but moreover were inline with the brief I set out to him at the beginning. Excellent communication, no other agenda other than supporting me finding my next role! I was under a lot of pressure to find a role and Michael was supportive, kind and more importantly, got results! I want to say thank you Michael for all your hard work and to anyone reading this, you wont find a better REC2REC, trust me!

I was very satisfied and impressed with the options he managed to present in a very short time after pre screening. The jobs he brought on board were accurately matching my expectations. Michael has also shown extreme competence in providing information on the companies in preparation for interviews and kept me up to date with honest and straight forward feedback.

Kayleigh Moore

​Mike approached me with a simple "i'm here if you are looking" and stayed away from the standard "You would love this incredible, fantastic, out of this world role" that really wouldn't be anything of interest. He knew he needed to get me as an individual before firing over irrelevant roles. We had a lengthy chat and he took the time to actually listen to what i wanted moving forward! He combined this with his knowledge of local companies, kept me in the loop at all times and secured me an incredible role that i couldn't be happier in! Some Rec to Rec's have a terrible name but Mike really is a breath of fresh air. Frequent contact, personable, likeable and i cannot express how much work he puts in to finding "that" perfect role. A simple recommendation does not do his efforts justice! Thanks again Mike; i cannot thank you enough!

​If you are considering a move I would highly recommend speaking to Mike. Mike opened my eyes to the potential within the market I was working in and had a complete understanding of what I was looking for. After speaking with a few Rec2Recs initially and not getting the best vibe, I was really pleased that Mike took the time to find out exactly what I wanted/ didn’t want and always kept in touch with updates. He gave really good advice and I completely trusted Mike to help me with an extremely big decision! I would 100% recommend Mike and his services. Again, huge thanks to you Mike.

​Michael approached me when I uploaded my CV onto the job boards. He has a great phone manor and you could immediately tell he knew what he was talking about. I've worked in recruitment for a number of years and can quickly tell if someone is just fishing for leads. Michael did none of this. He is open, transparent and honest. He does what he says he will do, when he says he will do it. He keeps you in the loop the whole way through the process, and makes sure you have all the information needed. Most of all He's just a bloody nice guy. Highly recommended. (Micheal if ever you looking for a job,,,give me a shout ;) )
