"Dealing with Firstperson has been refreshingly enjoyable. Right from the start, they were helpful, knowledgeable and very professional. Throughout the recruitment process, they kept me regularly and fully informed and I genuinely felt like I was receiving a personal service. I would not have the slightest hesitation in working with them again or recommending them to others."

Gary Smith, Managing Director, BlackRock
