JP was very helpful, patient and thoughtful during the selection process, he thought through the best fit for the role and selected candidates accordingly.

I messaged Neill Ferguson from Vanrath on LinkedIn in hopes of attaining a new job and he was immediately helpful, setting up a face to face meeting to discuss my options in order to source a company that was right for me. Within a week he had secured me an interview and was immensely helpful in preparing for said interview which went very well. I would be happy to use Vanrath and Neill again if changing roles in the future.
Daniel Morgan was just so lovely to deal with! Having never experienced a recruitment agency process before, I was a bit unsure what to expect .... but I was most impressed! Daniel arranged an initial meeting for us in their offices which I left feeling positive and much more confident! I was kept informed at all times and was delighted to have him representing me and negotiating on my behalf. I would highly recommend Vanrath to anyone seeking a new position and especially advise them to chat to Daniel Thank you so much Dan
