Hi Liz, I wish to thank you all for your excellent support from Day 1 of my CV submission. The professionalism delivered by Alexander Hancock, coupled with your own personal and supportive approach has been first class where that standard of service has not been forthcoming from many recruiters during my journey through unemployment. Your phone call today was a lovely touch, and really appreciated. Very Best wishes going forwards to you, and the team – I do hope we get the chance to meet again, though of course hopefully not for “job-seeking” conversation!!
