  • "James took the time to ensure the role was the right fit for both myself and my employer. Throughout the process of interviews and placement in the new role, James maintained conversation and provided me with timely and candid feedback. I have now started in my new role and I could not be happier. The fact I was only “passively” looking at new opportunities when I first spoke with James is testament to his genuine interest in matching candidates with their prospective new employers. I was initially unsure of my capacity to fulfil the role, but with James' encouragement & guidance I have been successfully placed in a position that will challenge me and allows for personal growth and development. I cannot recommend symmetric recruitment more. Thank you James."

My advisor James was extremely friendly and professional throughout the entire process. I was contacted for a role that was perfect for me and assisted me through the entire application process. Once I was awarded the role James continued to follow up with myself to make sure I was satisfied within the new role. I am very thankful for all the assistance that has been provided to me and I would go to James again if I ever require another opportunity."
  • "James at Symmetric Recruitment Ltd was the perfect professional during the entire application and interview processes, giving excellent advice and guidance from start to finish.
