'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.'
We’ve worked with a number of consultants across different divisions over the years and we’ve always found Cathedral Appointment’s service to be very professional and efficient.
