Can't thank Thomas Hobbs enough for the time and effort he's gone to in helping me get my dream job. I hadn't been through a recruiter before, and never realised how helpful it could be to have someone in your corner every step of the interview and job offer process. It's been a pleasure dealing with Thomas; highly recommend.
