What our clients say

We had the opportunity to work with Tim and Relay on a couple of key hirings for Germany and the Netherlands and he's one of the best recruiter I've had the chance to work with. Each time he understood the need and managed to build a pipe very quickly with strong candidates. Very professional and efficient, he knows how to drive and put cadence in the process, and is a great support in making the right decision and closing. Thanks Tim!

Tim is an excellent Recruiter. I had the pleasure to work with him during a recent recruiting process and found him extremely reliable, professional and efficient. Tim understands the business very well and could quickly assess whether the position was a match. He demonstrated very high commitment and reliability throughout the process, from understanding my background, identifying my objectives, to interview preparation and eventually conditions negotiations. Moreover, the communication with Tim was very easy and pleasant, clearly demonstrating outstanding people skills. I can highly recommend Tim to anyone looking for a new position or career perspective.
