"Jamie supported us with a number of recruitment campaigns at a food manufacturing organisation that I worked for. I can't recall one campaign that Jamie was not able deliver on and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jamie to a company looking to recruit. He knows his industry, builds good relationships with candidates and clients, and acts as an extension to any organisation recruiting."
