"If I had to pick one recruitment agent to work with it would be Adrian. When I was looking for a new
position I decided to approach Amiqus and after my first conversation I knew that I had made the right
decision. One of the first points Adrian made was that he would do nothing without my approval. This was
very reassuring for me as I wanted to know that I had complete control of who was being approached on my
behalf. I felt very comfortable with the whole process and at no time felt any pressure. In the end Adrian
placed me in my current role, a position I ordinarily wouldn't have felt confident applying for. Overall I really
like the way Adrian works. He is clearly very experienced and demonstrates an understanding which makes it
very easy to be honest with him. I am happy to say that I continue to work closely with Adrian now trying to
fill our open positions. He spends a lot of time working with us often visiting the studio to get a feel for the
type of candidates we are looking for. He is one of the good guys and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."
