I cant speak highly enough of Vanrath, and in particular David Kernohan. David took the time to fully understand what type of position I was looking for, while taking into account work life balance and the areas that I considered to be important. He kept me updated the whole way through the recruitment process and was very efficient. I have spent 18 years in the public sector so was worried about changing jobs and moving to the private sector, however David made the process as stress free as possible and gave me great advice at every stage. With David's help I'm now looking forward to starting a new job at the beginning of June.
