  • "​Having spoken with a number of recruiters during my job search, John was certainly the most knowledgeable about the surveying industry and was able to properly advise on the job spec’s role and responsibility. My experience with others was that this wasn’t always the case. John was readily available on the phone when needed and never pushed unsuitable opportunities onto me."


  • ​"I would come back again and again. John once again understood exactly my criteria and would only put something in front of me which would be the right fit. John was incredibly engaging at every step of the process and I always felt like he gave me so much of his time. When it came to securing the deal, he worked to get the salary to where I wanted it to be. "
