Where I work...

Physically
Brisbane, Queensland
Virtually
Australia: Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast; United Kingdom: London; Switzerland; France; Germany; Singapore: Singapore; Europe
I have recruited across an international platform with successful placements across Europe (Switzerland, France, Germany and the UK) In addition I have placed candidates in Singapore and Australia.

I have been in contact with Todd for about a year with him being a recruiter and myself running a settlements team, he regularly called me to see if I had any staffing issues. He was always polite, courteous and understood if I was sometimes too busy to talk.

Unfortunately I was recently made redundant due to increased automation and a re organisation within the company.
When I was first told, I called Todd for some advice and he immediately gave me some encouragement and a more positive outlook. He understood my situation and said he would look around for another position for me.
Within a couple of days he had secured me an interview, which I was more than a little surprised at, as the finance industry is not currently at its best. I subsequently went for a second interview and secured the position,so within a week of being made redundant, I was now employed again.
Thank you Todd for your encouragement and proffesionalism at a difficult time.

From first meeting Todd he completely understood what I was looking for in a perfect position, stuck to my spec. and delivered this to me as per my requirements.

As an agent I believe a key requirement is not only understanding, knowing and developing relationships with your clients but also your candidates, and Todd does just this. Through the the period I have got to know Todd, he has picked up on my key strengths and characteristics and used this as a motivational tactic as the right times.

Furthermore, the service was spot on. I find it highly irritating when you have to chase a consultant for updates/feedback's and still get no response. But with Todd you are sure to have him get in touch with you first.

Mr Pickering thank you so much for your help and support.
