Hello Natalie, today is my first full month in my new job and I just want to thank you again for helping me acquire such a wonderful position. You were the most helpful recruiter I had during my extremely horrible redundancy process and for that I am extremely grateful. I have mentioned you, and Alexander Hancock to some of my friends at Pipex who were in managerial positions that are now coming up for redundancy, and if you and your company is able to help them even half as much as you helped me, they will be ecstatic in their new roles, Many many thanks Colette
