” Building a new software product…… I didn’t hold out much hope of finding someone locally….. within a couple of days we had found a great developer who is still with us…great cultural fit…really really good experience, can’t do better than that!”

Nick Burne. Raisethru CEO

Ian identified my key skills, swiftly delivered a concise, market-ready impressive CV, proactively intro’d me to companies, secured an interview & I landed the job. Ian’s experience in IT, branding and recruitment is a powerful mix. I have no hesitation in recommending Ian. ”
