We have worked with Tim & Grant on multiple recruitments before, all with very successful outcomes and so we have built up a great deal of trust and confidence that they’ll do a great job again – and we weren’t disappointed. They were easy to work with, great fun and professional throughout and the customer experience throughout was a true joy. We are delighted with the outcome and bringing Monica onboard, and we will only use Erevena for all future executive hires to come!
