“Throughout this year we have been faced with the challenge of recruiting multiple vacancies at the trickiest of levels: 1-3 yr PQE. Following a multi-agency briefing and setting them all off at the same time (expecting them to deliver evenly across the board) it was only McKenzie Douglas who managed to unearth candidates of the quality we needed in terms of technical competency and attitude. I'm sure this was all as a result of sheer tenacity and graft. They also provided valuable intelligence, keeping us abreast of the market along the way so that we knew what we were up against. A fantastic achievement and I'm very pleased to be partnering with them. Definitely my first point of call moving forwards.”   Senior Talent Acquisition Partner
