Assisting a Commercial Accountant in their career

Claire reached out got in touch with me via LinkedIn about a new role that I could be interested in. It was a step up role that I might not ever have had the confidence to apply for on my own, but from looking at my profile and CV Claire advised that I was in fact exactly the type of candidate the company were looking for! Claire was friendly and professional throughout the whole process, and also helped me to prepare for my first ever ‘Virtual Interview’. The interview process on the whole was smooth, and Claire was available for all and any questions that I had. I am now settled in my new role in a fantastic company with great career prospects, an extremely fortunate position during these trying times that I would never have been in if Claire hadn’t found me and reached out. Thank you!
