I found the consultants Ellie and Emily both very helpful. They would call me when they arranged to call and would update me even without me chasing them. I found it helpful to meet with them prior to my interview so they could allay any concerns I had over the interviews. They provided feedback as soon as it was received. They were both very friendly and accommodating. I have already recommended them to friends and family.
