“The team at ROC truly took the time to understand the dimensions and requirements of a senior PA role I was seeking to fill and, rather than filling my inbox with CVs, sent through a select list of candidates that could truly perform at the necessary level. Having chosen an excellent candidate, they then worked quickly and efficiently to close an agreement on package with the candidate and ensure a smooth landing into the organisation”.

A. Morris, General Counsel, Utilities

"We have found ROC to be totally professional and trustworthy in everything they do. If ROC say they will deliver it, they do. They keep the client informed throughout the process. They are able to deal with difficult/diverse and changing situations. Responding as and when needed to clients changing their needs as the market place alters. We would have no hesitation in using ROC again for a future campaign."

R. Crouch, HR Business Partner, Utilities
