Jim was always helpful, clear and on time with the information needed to best perform for me as a potential employee, and now I am successfully placed within the company it is confirmed that he is very well regarded for these traits internally as well. Jim has also of course followed up to ensure I am settling in well and we will certainly be using Jim going forward as he finds the right talent at the right time.

Jim was great, took time to get to know me, the type of individual I am and the type of role and company that would be a complimentary fit.
He supported and coached me, and the company through the interview process (all 5 stages) and much to my own surprise, I actually enjoyed the process, feeling informed and well prepared for each stage. I'm now 2 weeks into a new job with a new company and loving it! I would recommend Jim to anyone looking for a new job and any companies seeking a professional recruiter.

Jim recruited me into my current role and has continued to provide recruitment services to the company. In all my dealings with Jim I have found him to be highly professional, focused on the task in hand and able to source high quality candidates, everything you should expect from a quality recruitment professional but not always the case.

Nobody came close to the professionalism, the integrity, the commitment that Jim showed. From our first conversation, he showed me that he meant business. He knew his Client well, he knew the position well and he, definitely, knew what to look for in order to add value both to his Client and myself. During the hiring process, he always delivered what he promised, and not even once he failed to follow up. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone who either is seeking for a new job or is looking to hire the best person for a job

Jim is a recruiter who thinks outside the box to provide value to his clients.
For example, we did a telephone interview recording to differentiate his candidate against the competition. This in turn saves hiring manager's time in due diligence and speed up hiring process to attract to creme de la creme candidates. His high tech marketing campaign works!

In sum, I'm really thankful for all the support and advice that Jim gave me through the selection process. I strongly recommend him as a professional recruiter for technology companies, and recommend Antal to whoever wish to explore or pursue new job opportunities.

Jim has been able to obtain interviews for me at 2 very significant companies. The first at Avaya UK, gained me a position as Head of Global Engagement and Service Delivery and the second gained me the opportunity to seel my skills to a global Telecomms provider.
In each case, Jim has been communicative, diligent and good natured in his approach. His range of contacts is extremely well spread and unlike many recruiters, Jim is prepared to take calls and speak directly to his clients.
