“I have been involved with several agencies to help me get an ideal job that suits my status but majority of them failed to deliver. When I got involved with CK Group, I realised that there are agencies, and then there are agencies. CK Group promised and delivered. Jim was exceptionally fantastic in following all the way, a process that took 3 months. I will not hesitate to recommend CK to job seekers.” HR Advisor
