Candidate Feedback

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
