    “Samuel contacted me for the first time to recruit me on behalf of what would have become my current employer. He has been an exceptional recruiter always trying to ensure that my requests were addressed, and my concerns or doubts clarified. I am extremely thankful to Sam for bringing to my attention a career opportunity that I would have ignored and missed if it were not for the transparency, integrity and perseverance he always demonstrated with me. His belief that I was the best candidate for the job was not his unique driver and when he created the communication conditions for me to understand that the company was the right move for me, he gained all my trust. I did not need to wait until this recommendation to be written to promote Sam as the best recruiter I have met in over 15 years and I did so by sharing his contact details with several colleagues and friends.”
