Eleanor was fantastic to deal with. She took time to go through my background and ran through all of the available positions in detail. Within 24 hours of our first conversation, Eleanor had secured three interviews for me with my preferred firms. Eleanor and the rest of the Errington team were very prompt to respond to queries, very quick to update me with news and on hand to provide invaluable advice regarding the recruitment process. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
