"Thank you so much for getting to know me and what was important to me for my next career move.

From the initial phone conversation, to our meeting at your office, you made sure you understood completely what I was looking for and what I wanted out of my next role.

One month in and my family and I couldn't be any happier.

Anyone that is looking for a new role or advice on their current structure, give Roland a call. Coffee is on him."

Best recruiter ever!! Roland helped me get my role as Client Service Officer at Acceptance Finance. It was a pleasure dealing with you and I wish you all the best for the future.

Leo ZhangClient Service Officer | Resolve Finance

"Roland has placed me in my last two positions, my latest being in October 2017. Roland listens to what you do and don't want in a job and has met the brief perfectly for me on both occasions. I completely trust his judgement. He is very professional and knows his stuff. I cannot speak highly enough of Roland and highly recommend him to anybody looking to fill a position with the right candidate or someone who might be looking for that perfect job. "

Karen EasdonClient Service Officer/Loan Administrator | Acceptance Finance

I have to say, of all the recruiters I’ve spoken with over my career, Roland is by far the best recruitment consultant. He is a very good listener, he always knows what I am looking for and therefore a level of trust is built between us. He delivers everything he promises. He is thorough, efficient, professional and helpful and this is how recruiting should be done. Thank you Roland and I wish success in your future plans.
