Having been a candidate of Drake, I was impressed with their candidate management and so utilised them to fill a Senior HR Leadership role in our business. Drake understood the brief and the unique environment we operate in and presented high quality caliber candidates. Their customer service throughout the process could not be faulted.

Dealing with the team at Drake International has been a blast. We had been seeking a temp team member for some time and was looking to do the process in house. The Drake team really excelled and took this burden off our hands. We were able to secure a temp team member.
