“We worked with Colin on recruiting a Sales & Marketing Manager. This was a high-level appointment for CTE and Colin offered several different direct hire routes, many of which we didn’t even know about. Colin supported us through the entire process with guidance and advice, all the way through to an offer being made and accepted. This has been the most comprehensive recruitment process undertaken by CTE, which wouldn’t have been possible without Colin's support and guidance”
