"Ryan and his team were terrific during my recent engagement with them. Ryan took the time to understand my skills and what I was seeking from my next position, and found an ideal opportunity for me. Ryan also ensured that I fully understood the company, the team I’d be joining, and the role I was applying for. Likewise, my new employer seemed to have been well informed about me and my capabilities/experience which made the whole process much easier. I couldn’t have asked for more! Can’t wait to start the new job! Thanks Ryan! Process effortless for me and now thanks to him, i'm basically in the role that i've been striving to land for the past 12 months.
He absolutely nails the balance of professionalism and approachability. The ability to text for quick updates on progress and know that he is always working in the background proved to be absolute gold for me.
I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Ryan to any of my friends or colleagues in the past, present or future. Truly a standout recruiter at a standout company!
Thank you to Ryan and team as a whole"
Senior Principal Consultant - Cyber Security Consultancy
"Ryan stood out among other recruiters for his unwillingness to simply 'fill a vacancy' or 'find me a job' - he genuinely wanted to ensure he matched the right person with the right vacancy. We spent some time talking through what I was looking for in my career, what sort of employer I was after etc. before he put me forward.
During the recruitment process he kept me informed at every stage, ensuring I was never left wondering what was going on.
Ultimately, he helped me find my new position, which fits me to a T!
Ryan is a model for the recruitment industry - if he gets in touch with you via LinkedIn, he's well worth talking to. He won't put you forward for half a dozen vacancies in a "Spray and pray" approach, he'll work out which one's best for you (and the employer) and target that"
Security Operations & Incident Response Manager - FTSE Law Firm
"Ryan was pleasant and interesting. I haven't met with a recruiter face to face for a long time, and it is testament to Ryan's approach that I agreed to do so in the first place. Ryan is clearly incisive and sharp. They have all the attributes they need to make it a success in time. If they manage to find me a role or 2, then this rating will obviously improve, but they'll have to work hard to influence my thinking. ...
Since this original note, I would like to add that not only has Ryan found me a role, he has also found me 5 very very sharp Cyber Security experts who are some of the best I have ever hired. From now on he will always be my first call"

Global Security Operations Manager - Oil & Gas Conglomerate
"I genuinely think Ryan was one of the best I've encountered as a candidate, or worked alongside. He pushed my CV last minute in front of the client and got me an interview for the next day, despite the client being on his final round of interviews. He also took the trouble to Facetime me to check I was suitable, which was good from my new employer's viewpoint. Excellent communication all the way through"

Senior SOC Analyst - Global Defence Firm
"After reading my blog Ryan noticed that I had some relevant skills to a role he was recruiting. It just so transpired that the role he approached me for was one I had already been rejected for to which Ryan didn’t see as an issue. We soon realized that CV was a large part to play in this, so Ryan went about his way of building a new one for me populating it with all of my relevant skills. 1 telephone interview and 3 face to face interviews later I find myself in my dream job all thanks to Ryan’s eye for talent and dedication."

"I decided to call Ryan after hearing good things about his team in the market, one of the best decisions I have made. He quickly met me and talked through all of my short fallings with my function and spotted a couple of areas he would be able to help with. He swiftly provided me with a shortlist of pre-screened and very strong candidates. I took one of these options but felt I could have taken anyone of them. I will certainly be using him in the future."
