Sara Dixon is one of the best recruiters I have come across while looking for a travel respiratory position. She is professional, authentic and very knowledgeable in her field of work. I truly felt she had my best interest at heart. She always answers my questions in a way I understood what next steps to make. Thank you Sara Dixon for all that you do.
Helen is by far one of the best recruiters I've ever worked with. She's so patient, always provides you with accurate information and promptly returns phone calls. She's not the typical recruiter who use the 'bait and switch' approach. I'd definitely recommend her to any of my traveler friends. Simply awesome.
So far, very well- organized. You get the help and assistance all throughout.
