The professionalism of everyone in the team was superb and I would like to single out Sophie Clark and in particular Andrew Burnage for their fabulous support throughout the process. Andrew's advice and guidance, both pre and post interview, was absolutely invaluable and he was also able to negotiate a remuneration package well beyond my expectations.

Zuber Ahmed

I was initially contacted by Kathryn Moss regarding a role which seemed like a fantastic opportunity and seemed almost too good to be true. Throughout the application process she was always quick to respond to any questions, spent time with me over video call to help prep for the interview and was very efficient and clear in her approach. As a result of this, going into a rather nerving interview I felt well prepared. I would definitely recommend Robertson Bell and thank Kathryn on all her effort in helping me achieve an offer on a role - especially one I never thought I would get! 5 stars.
