"I've used Sue Ross Recruitment twice in my job hunt over the last year and both times have been very positive experiences. I've been dealing with both Ashley and Lucy, who were very attentive and really listened and considered what I was looking for in my next role - rather than just putting me forward for opportunities that didn't suit my needs. They both kept in touch with me regularly, letting me know how things were progressing along and were always available for any questions/advice. One of the best recruitment firms I've used and I can't recommend them enough, thank you for all your help!"
