“Overall I am very happy with the service from Standing Tall. It was the first time working with you and it was a positive experience.
You submitted numerous strong candidates for the role. Although in the beginning some of the candidates were not suitable as soon as you understood the requirements better the candidates that were sent through were all very strong.
You were also very patient with the process which, this time, was a very long and tedious one as we had managers who were travelling and uncontactable for feedback. You were patient and followed up timeously for feedback when I was not coming back to and I thank you for that.
I look forward to working with Standing Tall in the future.”
