O Maroof – Candidate
"After deciding to take a nine month break from the city following redundancy, the prospect of finding my next role was daunting to say the least. Thankfully working with Saxton Leigh I found an amazing role. Stuart and Marcus understood my skill set from the get-go and put me forward for a great opportunity. They maintained regular dialogue with me throughout the process, from the first interview to my options on Limited and Umbrella companies. Its not luck that has lead them to find my last two roles, despite them being ten years apart."
