Here's what Tom's candidates say about him:

"Tom has been my consultant for about 18 months now. I had been a social worker for three years and not had the easiest of times at the beginning of my career when I decided that I wanted to diversify my experience and take upon new challenges as an agency social worker. When I first made enquiries I was inundated with calls and offers of contracts from various consultants from a number of agencies, however, Tom really stood out to me because of his knowledge of the profession, his interest in me and my story and his determination to help me overcome some of the barriers I was facing. My confidence was a little battered at that point in my career but from the off, I felt that Tom recognised a real potential in me which boosted my self-confidence and committed to finding me the right role to fit in with my quite specific aspirations. I had decided that I wanted to work in Jersey, which was not really an area that Tom covered nor one that at the time he had a current working relationship with. Also he was very aware that Jersey would not really consider hiring an agency worker with only three years of experience. Tom helped me to develop my CV to present me in the most positive light and went on a mission to get me an interview. Despite a number of knock backs he finally got me that telephone interview and gave me lots of prep and coaching to sell myself in the best possible way and I ended up getting the job. I have been working in Jersey now for 11 months and have felt that Tom has been there to support me through all the trials and tribulations. Throughout this process, I know that I put Tom through the mill and at times was very difficult and high maintenance, however he remained calm, professional and very supportive. I am now in a position where my time in Jersey has come to an end and I have been looking for a new and bigger challenge. Again, Tom has pushed me, believed in my ability and promoted me to a project role which will further enhance my career. The new role involves me uprooting again and therefore it has been really reassuring to have Tom by my side, pre-empting issues and doing his best to make it a smooth transition for me. Aside from all the practical elements of Tom’s role as my consultant, he has also become a level of personal support and a sounding board for me to rant, rave or just have a bit of a giggle. Social work is at times an impossible profession and agency social work even more so, to me, it has been really important to be supported by a professional and compassionate recruitment consultant."
