I couldn’t be more pleased to have her in the team.UK&I Legal Director, Fortune 100, Twickenham UK
My new employer is fantastic. The great culture I was told about during the recruitment process is really a part of the whole company – not just the management.
Despite being busy everyone really takes the time to help out and support each other ? I haven’t seen a company invest so much time and effort into the communication with its employees, so despite being a big company you really feel like you have access to all levels.
My managers are great – very approachable and caring.Senior Legal Counsel, Global IT Company, Sweden
I felt valued as a professional and as a person, not just a resume in a pile to be sent.
I was perfectly targeted for the offered position, and received real support and preparation from Mila at each step of the process. My best experience with a recruiter so far.Technology Counsel, Software Company, France
