"From the start of the process moving from one role and workplace to another Julia made the process seamless. Regular contact, clear and concise instruction and updates, can changing jobs be any more enjoyable? A wonderful experience and a great new job in the bag. Thank-you Julia and team at Prime Appointments, Witham."

Mark Finding (04/02/23)

"Julia was very helpful in providing me with the details of a new vacancy that I applied for via indeed.co.uk. I was then offered an interview with the company very quickly and the instructions for getting there and details about the company were very clear. I attended the interview and Julia followed up about an hour later asking how it went etc. 2 days later, they offered me the position and Julia advised me of this. I immediately accepted and it has all been arranged to start next week. All in all, a very good service all round."
