Testimonials

'Andrei - I particularly enjoyed working with you. You have been straight, honest and fair. You gave me the chance to convince you and initially I convinced the client too. You also briefed me very well.'

Martin

Satisfied Candidate

'Just wanted to pass on my thanks for a superb meeting this morning Lynsey. I believe you got a very good understanding of my background, current position and intentions; I also got from you some superb insight and a huge amount of confidence in working with you going forwards. Your knowledge of the local IT market is clearly significant and your network expansive which is impressive. The names you came up with were of course similar to mine but you also know organisations I’ve not heard of before; even ones on my doorstep who I’d not heard of but look very interesting.'

Simon

Satisfied IT Candidate

Dani has placed me in a couple of positions which have both been a great match to my skills and personality. She has always worked with my best interests at heart and the whole team provides a very professional service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cathedral Appointments to anyone looking for either a job or to hire staff.
