I have worked with a number of recruitment consultants but Mike is one of the very best I have come across. His knowledge of the client and relationship he creates enables him to fully understand the needs and expectations. Mike is also extremely good at communication as I never felt out of the loop in what was going on. I would highly recommend Mike and Portman Partners for both candidates and employers.”
