Testimonials

'I've experienced Lynsey whilst looking for a suitable role for myself and then as a manager requiring a number of technical positions. Both experiences have been excellent. During the past 6 months of recruitment, Lynsey has found excellent candidates for my vacancies, provided me with background to the candidates where it's missing on the CV and ensured each candidate turned up. Lynsey keeps in touch, irrespective of any vacancies and provides valuable insights into the technical resource status for Exeter and the surrounding area. I recommend Lynsey for any technical recruitment requirements and for any former colleagues looking for alternate employment.'

Sophia is an absolute pleasure to work with and we look forward to continuing this in the future.'

How lockdown helped me thrive

How lockdown helped me thrive

This time last year, when the UK had just gone into lockdown for the very first time, nobody would’ve predicted that we would still be in a similar position one year later. Upon reflection, there’s a huge amount that all of us have learned within that time, with many of us having reassessed our priorities and worked towards achieving healthier, happier and more productive lifestyles.
