My experience of working with Kelly was exceptional from her initial contact until she successfully placed me into a very high profile consulting role at a FTSE 100 group. Kelly consistently supported me and went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for all interview rounds, providing a friendly but very professional service. I highly recommend Kelly and will definitely be telling my connections to use her in the future!


Paul is a highly professional, supportive person who understands the needs of his clients and contractors alike. I found him extremely helpful, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I cannot recommend either Paul or Stott and May highly enough.
