The future of recruitment:

Since the workplace went virtual, traditional recruiting has changed with face-to-face interactions no longer an essential part of the recruitment process, however, Val has been remote working for 22 years and has mastered the ability to build long-term relationships remotely, understanding that effective communication, dedication and tailoring the service provided is still the key to success for both client and candidate. 

Fun Fact:

The first time Val went up in an aeroplane she didn’t land in it.....It was her first static line parachute jump at 3000 feet!, but she was so terrified she refused to jump so the instructor coerced her to just sit by the exit and then with ever such a gentle nudge with his size 10 boot she found herself unwillingly leaving the aeroplane, Val went on to do 2 more jumps for charity. 

I first met Val when looking to Join Shell Gas Direct in 2001, I could see immediately that Val's commitment to her clients was second to none. With Val's guidance and support I was fortunate enough to be given a position at SGD in April 2001. Moving into a management role in 2005, my interaction with Val increased significantly as I had a regular requirement for quality staff on a predominantly temporary basis. The caliber of candidates was of a very high standard.  Val has a very good 'feel' for the right person for a specific role. I can't recommend Val highly enough.
