In their own words

“I have worked with Roheela and Martin Veasey Talent Solutions for 15 years now. Their responsiveness and customer service has been excellent, but more importantly their understanding and interpretation of my requirements has been paramount while they search the markets and find the right fit staff for my business needs. Over the past ten years my staff requirements have changed significantly from a UK-based need to a global one spanning 11 countries. All roles have to speak English, but all roles also need to be local nationals which is not easy to achieve, especially when you are recruiting in Latin America, South Africa, Russia, Japan, China, Singapore and Korea. Another significant impact of working with Roheela and Martin Veasey Talent Solutions is their ability to find good calibre people quickly and only present the best ones, which in turn allows me and my local teams to make good use of our time.”
