I would highly recommend her expert help and support to anyone looking for a new challenge or career change.
“I just wanted to send a note to say thank you for your time this week! It was really refreshing to meet someone in recruitment who doesn’t see you as a number and actually listens to what it is that you’re looking for and what would be best suited! First time I’ve come away from a recruiters meeting and felt confident……ever!”
“Anouska is one of the most genuine and honest recruiters I have worked with, she understands people and most importantly gets to know you. She made my whole experience so easy and found me a job I genuinely enjoy going to every day!”
Anouska and her team at Office Collective were a pleasure to work with, beyond the basics of a professional recruiter, Office Collective goes that extra mile to get to know you and what makes you tick.
