Russell is a fantastic recruiter. All communication with him has been exceptional and he helped me to understand clearly at each stage of the recruitment. While other recruiters, takes days to even acknowledge the application, Russell managed to secure the interview in less than 24 hour of my original application. Even when the original interview got cancelled due to interviewer’s request, his reassurance really helped me to keep positive. True to his words, he secured another interview for the same position within a couple of days and his guidance really helped to secure this position.
