In their own words

“Martin Veasey Talent Solutions for me are different to many other recruitment agencies as they provide a very personable service for their prospective candidates. They very much practice what they preach!   When I first my Roheela for my initial interview it felt very much like an interview with the company.  She was very knowledgeable about the job role but also about the business and the team I would be working in, their culture and more specifically the management team and their personality profiles and where I could fit into the business.  This really helped me prepare for the interview in the correct way but also gave me an understanding of whether I felt I could fit into the team, which from a candidate point of view is actually very important if you are looking long term.  The level of detail provided about the role was also second to none and the role has lived up to the expectation set out at the start.   All in all I would recommend Roheela and Martin Veasey Talent Solutions to any of my network if looking for the next step in their career."
