Tim helped to place me at Client X via SMC Executive, I found Tim to be first class in all my dealings with him. His communication was great and he followed through on what he said.
I have no hesitation in recommending Tim and SMC Executive and would certainly engage their services again as required.
In my search for a new position, prior to meeting with SMC, I met with a number of recruitment agencies, some with more success than others but ultimately I didn't find a suitable position. Following my first meeting with my SMC consultant, I felt at ease having SMC represent me to prospective employers. My consultant put me forward for a great role and following successful interviews, he also assisted me to obtain the best possible salary package.
The experience of working together with my consultant was a pleasure and having now gained employment through SMC Executive, I wouldn't hesitate recommending SMC to friends, family or acquaintances.

After many years at one organisation I decided to seek a new role externally and spoke to Tim at SMC to start the process. During our initial meeting he took the time to understand in detail what I had done so far in my career, what I was looking for in a new role and why. Tim’s knowledge of the industry and process was apparent and this initial meeting set a solid base for the journey of broadening my career. Throughout the whole process Tim was proactively across every stage and I felt I could contact him at any time for updates or to seek his advice. If was looking for a new role in the future my first call would be straight to Tim and I would confidently recommend him to any of my colleagues.

Interviews may happen in a variety of forms, starting with a telephone interview, being asked to prepare a case study or an invitation for a face-to-face interview.
Preparation is essential and greatly enhances your chances of performing well at any interview and will often be the difference between your success and failure. Good preparation not only gives you an insight into the organisation, it can also give you clarity and confidence. Surprises can catch you off guard and often throw your poise, being the tipping point of an interview.
