“When people talk, listen completely.”

why work with balance recruitment?

“When you’re dealing with recruitment agencies, whether you’re a candidate or a company looking to fill a role, and I’ve been both, what’s different about Balance is that they want to have a relationship with you.

They treat you as an individual. As a candidate you have a degree of trust they they’re looking after your interest rather than trying to slot you into the first available role.”

bryan Business analyst / Project manager
