Brian Murphy

As a recent graduate, I was struggling to kickstart my professional career, but that changed as soon as I contacted Jenny. From initial contact to within the space of two weeks she had landed me an interview. She provided me with all the necessary information and advice that I needed and made me feel confident and at ease going into my interview. She was always on hand and would reply almost instantly to any queries I had. Jenny is a true professional who is passionate about her work but also genuinely cares about her clients and fights to get the best for them. If you are looking to kickstart or progress your career I can't recommend Jenny enough.
