I am so grateful for this opportunity thanks to Karen and the team. It is going well and the company is one of the best I have ever worked for.

​Karen was extremely helpful and proactive in securing my placement for me. She was very knowledgeable about her client and also went to great lengths to ensure that I was prepared for the meetings I had with them before they offered me a contract. She was always accessible and I never felt that she was rushing me. Her insights to the client and the sort of person that they were looking for were also essential in me securing this role. The manner and politeness of all staff I have spoken with over recent months has been exemplary.

​Karen, Stuart and Colin at Sharp have worked tirelessly to place me in the right position, considering me with everything that might be appropriate!
