Senior Site Manager - Construction Main Contractor

"Jade was brilliant! She prepared me for each interview and helped me prepare questions and what I was going to say. Jade also chased up employers for me and was lovely from start to finish. She made getting a job a much less daunting task and helped pick jobs that would suit my needs. I’m in my third week now and loving it! She even sent me a welcome hamper when I had had my first couple of days, really going above and beyond. Cannot recommend Jade & Atkins Search enough."
