"I have known Eileen Richards for a number of years and during this time I’ve been  impressed with the quality of the service she provides to her clients, consistently high.  I have been so impressed that I have recommended Eileen Richards Recruitment services to my own clients when they have been looking to recruit senior managers for their business.  During these occasions I have worked with my clients and have therefore been able to experience the standard of Eileen Richards Recruitment customer service, the quality and effectiveness of the processes they have in place and care given to each business and individual they work with.  As a Business Consultant, a referral or bringing in another business to work with my own clients can put my own reputation on the line, Eileen Richards Recruitment and Eileen Richards herself have not disappointed me or my business.  I am more than comfortable working with Eileen Richards Recruitment and would not hesitate to recommend them at all.
