Darren has a great aptitude for finding the perfect combination of potential employees with suitable roles and business cultures. It was through working with Darren that I acquired my current position as a Network Manager.
Darren really displayed that "added value" by not simply comparing CVs with advertised roles: instead he displays an in-depth understanding of what the company with the vacant position really desire and expect of prospective candidates (including things that might not be easily captured on a CV such as drive, attitude and interest in the sector and role); what previous experiences motivated the candidate - in this example me - in terms of challenges, work cultures/environment, learning opportunities, what aspirations they have as a career path long-term; and then honed the needs and wants of both parties to make an ideal match.
His support through the recruitment process was much appreciated - and really made me feel both inspired and perfectly prepared for the interviews. I was given some great feedback from our initial meeting which I made use of at all subsequent stages, and am very happy that I now have the role that fulfils my needs to develop and learn. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Darren, and I actively recommend him to friends seeking new roles similar to mine. - Rachael Bullmore, Network Manager at Carat
