What our clients say about us



“I was impressed by Catherine’s network and ability to produce a high calibre slate of Senior Corporate Counsel’s for two interim contract roles we needed to fill. The candidates had good credentials and were available to start immediately. The rates charged were cost effective, which is not always the case with interim and contract recruitment. In my experience, Catherine takes the time to understand the needs of your business and works hard to match candidates who will be the right cultural fit for your team. She is always responsive and professional and a pleasure to work with.”
