What our clients and candidates say about us
The Drake team have been part of our recruitment drive, directly supporting the recruitment of the production – shop floor teams. The ANCA team enjoyed working with Matt as he took a genuine interest in the roles and skills required within them to help find the best candidates. The ability to adjust and tune job ads and pitches to potential candidates helped Matt build a more detailed profile of ANCA’s requirements that improved with each new position. This helped streamline the process and reduce ANCA’s input into the interview process.
