Working with Claire was really straightforward and I felt an instant rapport with her.  She kept me fully updated throughout the recruitment process and was always on hand to answer questions and to hear my feedback.  I always felt that Claire was honest, informative and supportive - and never felt as though I was being ‘sold’ a role.  I would not hesitate to recommend Claire and court & spark.
