Gavin is now my first point of call for any new role requirements in my teams. He is a trusted individual who has earnt my custom through results. Gavin's first engagement with Virgin was back in early 2012 to help me build a growing org. Close to 80% of roles filled have been filled by Gavin. Where other agents lost interest in our high criteria for new recruits, Gavin has kept close to the roles and found the high calibre individuals we've been seeking.

I have worked with Gavin at Nominet for just under two years as one of our PSL partners. He has worked hard to build a great relationship with me, my team and Nominet. His team have been one of our top performing PSL agencies and he is always happy to provide insightful market data which helps me set expectations with my manager community. Gavin has extensive knowledge of the java developer community and this is clear by his network and excellent candidates that he submits. I really enjoy working with Gavin and see him as a credible and professional consultant. It is nice to work with someone who is honest, will give you good insight and advice to help secure talent.

I approached Gavin after being referred by one of his colleagues, and since the first email he's been superb. His attitude to finding a role for me was the most important factor, as he took his time to work out what I wanted and more critically, what I didn't want. We spent time talking in person and on the phone as necessary to ensure I had the best chance of getting the role, and he demonstrated patience, understanding, and isn't afraid to push if he thinks you'll fit in a role.I'd strongly recommend Gavin if you're a Java bod, and I'll work with him again should I look for another role in the future.

Gavin contacted me via LinkedIn about some opportunities. From our first conversation it was obvious that Gavin is a good listener. Gavin ensured that I had all the details I needed about the interviews and was always swift to follow up with me after the interview. He was responsive to any questions I had and maintained his enthusiasm throughout the fairly long process to get an offer that suited my needs as a working parent. I would recommend Gavin as an agent to anyone looking for work in this area.
