Recruiting staff can be a time consuming and arduous process. We found some recruitment firms throw CVs at a vacancy in the hope that one sticks!
Morgan Mckinley and our dealings with their consultant were refreshing and showed a more professional and structured approach to finding the right candidate. Their attention to detail was not just ensuring candidates have the required skillsets but also ensuring a candidates personality would fit well within our firm and office. I would warmly recommend Morgan Mckinley to firms recruiting technologists in the finance sector.
