About me

I have been recruiting in the Software Development & Testing space with VANRATH for the past 3 years. This specialisation allows me to give you a deeper understanding of the clients we work with and the roles that best match your skill-set or aspirations.

Please see below for some of my recent testimonials available on Google:

"I spoke with VANRATH before around a year ago, but wasn't really interested in moving at the time. Nevertheless, I saved Neill's number as out of all the recruiters I have spoken with, he listened to what I was looking for the most, provided balance, and was not pushing me in any direction whatsoever. When the time came to look for a move, everything was quick, smooth and helpful and I had all the information I needed for any interviews. Highly recommended."
