After contacting Ben, he took the time to meet with me and discuss a number of potential opportunities. He seems to have a very good network and genuinely strong relationships with his clients. When he suggested the role into which he placed me, I thought it showed creativity and a real understanding of my transferable skills. Throughout the subsequent process, he was supportive, communicative and responsive. I always felt he had my best interests at heart and was also ensuring his client was happy (which was important to me as they were to become my employer!). This included a number of calls to both his client and me while he was on holiday. Ben ensured that not only did I get a package and job title with which I was very happy, but that I joined a team he evidently thought highly of, and into which I have settled in well. Since I have started work he has been in touch regularly to make sure I am happy and I feel he is always on hand should I need advice.
