  • Friendly, always there for you and if half the agencies out there followed suit the recruitment sector wouldn't have hald the negative stigma it has.

  • The level of contact and communication was 100% every step of the way. I am very impressed with Linear Recruitment’s professionalism and welcoming service. I had registered with other leading agencies but they paled in comparison.
