Conor at Vanrath was very helpful and supportive in securing a new job. The funding for my previous job was becoming less secure and Conor helped me make the leap into a new permanent role. It was a quick process and a bit of luck with timing. I have spoke to other staff and Vanrath and have always found them helpful as well.
