Nick and the guys at Context have proven themselves to be very adept at finding unusually shaped needles in very large haystacks. Our relationship started as a result of a speculative conversation and has been very beneficial. Always positive and determined, even with roles that prove more difficult to fill. Context have taken the time to gain a good understanding of our culture and values which makes the recruitment a more productive, less time consuming process. I am happy to recommend Nick and his team.
