“Jane is a great head-hunter, whose friendly and competent approach makes her a fantastic partner for both job seekers and prospective employers!”

Jane has a sound knowledge of the Company Secretarial market and a great knowledge of her clients’ requirements; this was evidenced by the great support she gave me during the selection process, as she was able to address my (many) questions in a constructive and positive manner, which ultimately gave me the confidence I needed to pass my interviews.

“I have known Jane for approximately 15 years, recruiting a number of excellent team members through her. Jane has also found me two roles which have been important to me in my career.”
“I have known Jane for approximately 15 years, recruiting a number of excellent team members through her. Jane has also found me two roles which have been important to me in my career. I would recommend Jane highly, regardless of whether you're recruiting or looking for a role. Jane's real standout skill is that she doesn't just take a job spec and look through her list of candidates, instead she really makes an effort to get to know both company and candidates. This means that sometimes she will come up with slightly unexpected ideas but because she's put in the effort up front it's always worth listening to her advice and being challenged by her. Overall I can't recommend Jane highly enough, she's brilliant.”
