'I worked with Ellie on several roles in Cambridge in 2016. These were excellent opportunities which I could not have located otherwise. Ellie prepared me extremely well for interview and clearly understood the firms and their requirements well. She really got to know me, understood my priorities and used this knowledge to help me demonstrate how my experience and interests matched the needs of these employers. Ellie was also strategically and tactically very astute. Her work secured me several interviews and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other candidates in future.'
