Chris managed the recruitment and on boarding of my current role. I found him extremely professional and capable HR consultant who made it easy to allow me to make a very informed decision to take on the role. He was always available to discuss and elaborate on my questions and took to the time to explain queries as required.

Highly recommend him in any engagement that requires a passionate HR professional.

Chris is a technology savvy recruiter. He invests a lot of time in planning before starting the hiring process. He understands the deadline, budgetary constraints and takes complete ownership of the recruitment process. He is hardworking, a great communicator and a pleasure to deal with.

Chris has actively worked over the last 2 years with the project that I am running to recruit specialist IT staff. He has been tireless in his sourcing (and innovative), conscious of the business requirements and has been very good with follow up when required. He has also been very good with potential candidates - keeping them up to date with progress. It will be sad to seem Chris leave the Bank.

Its always a pleasure working with Chris because I know that our recruitment requirements will always be met on time and within budget. In addition his contribution goes well beyond talent acquisition, he actually cares about his clients and works with them towards the closest state of common good.
