What they say about us

Adam Miller - Marketing Manager

Nigel worked so hard to find a perfect role that really fitted me

I've used Nigel before to find a new position so I knew the high standards I could happily expect, but I was still so pleased that he took so much time to understand my next career move and what I was really searching for. Nigel worked so hard to find me a role that really fitted me and my needs and I would highly recommend them as a recruitment company.

Jack Carliell - Graphic Designer

It was really fun getting to know Nigel at Craft Marketing Search. He was very helpful in answering all my questions and made me feel completely at ease. The job they found me ended up being twice as good as I could have ever envisioned!
