Having such a reliable recruitment partner with a ‘can-do' attitude means I can leave C&M to get the recruitment brief filled efficiently and effectively.

I have no hesitation in recommending C&M to anyone who needs support, help or advice with their annual recruitment programmes or individual/ad hoc recruitment needs.
