Jo is unwaveringly friendly, helpful and thorough. As a freelancer, Jo has continued to place me in great positions and been a constant source of support along the way. She knows the industry inside out - work with her, you'll love her.

Rebecca Bowman - Brand Manager

The talent that Jo brought to the table was second to none, it was clear that she had spent significant time during the search and selection process. The outcome of the retained search was us hiring a candidate who went beyond the brief. The process was stream lined and service second to none.

It was such a pleasure working with Brianna to land an amazing role that I love. Brianna kept me updated at all points of progression, made sure I was well prepped for the interview, and helped things move at lightning speed. I couldn't have done it without her.

Brianna was great and on hand to help every step of the way, she was reactive throughout the whole process and has touched base multiple times since being placed to check in with me in my new position.
