Testimonials

"Dear Mark, I am writing to you as I wish to bring to your attention the excellent work of one of your colleagues. The person in question is David Vincent who has been endeavouring on my behalf to find me suitable employment. During my dealings with David he has shown himself to be extremely professional and diligent in his role. He has consistently provided me with all the help information he possibly could at every stage of the recruitment process and has always kept me up to date with developments in my search for employment. He has shown great empathy to my situation and gives the impression that he genuinely cares about finding the right employment opportunities for your candidates. In recent times I have been in contact with various recruitment consultants and I can honestly say that David is the best and most professional that I have ever worked with. Please convey my gratitude to David for his work on my behalf. Yours sincerely B.V "

Senior Java developer

"Thanks to Mark and his team at Lynx Recruitment, I was able to find a job in the first week of arriving on the coast of England. Having just arrived in the country from New Zealand, it was important for me to find work as soon as possible. Thanks to Mark and his team, I was also able to use their expertise in helping out with Bank Account's, Setting up Umbrella Companies ( so I could get paid!! ) and other general working in the UK issues I had. Mark has always only been a phone call away, and I would recommend Lynx and their services to anyone looking to recruit staff, or for a job placement."
