It’s what you actually do that really matters not just what you say.  And what better way to find out about what we do than to listen to what some of our clients and candidates have to say about as.  We treat both employers and candidates as the same – they are our partners and without both, we are nothing.

These guys really do their homework, and matched me perfectly for the role I am now in (unlike other recruiters who I have used in the past). I would highly recommend both Claire and Ultimate Banking for anyone looking for a new role."
