Paul is professional, efficient and one of the best recruiters that I have had the pleasure of working with over the years. Engage People is so well named because that’s exactly what Paul embodies, being engaging. I can’t recommend him highly enough. If you’re looking for that added touch then Paul is for you. He’s goes above and beyond wherever he can.

I found Paul thoroughly professional in his approach at all times, his knowledge of the recruitment sector was second to none but it is how he dealt with his clients that set him apart. Paul was open to ideas , astute in his observations and therefore canny in his ability to match the person to the role.
