Alice Blake,
XL Services UK Limited,

I found the service Kristina offered to be extremely professional. She was always in contact with me as to the status and progression of a potential position, and has found an opportunity for me which was the perfect fit. She was also a pleasure to work with.

Ainhoa Alzola,
QBE European Operations,

I met Kristina through the business networking site Linked-in. She understood exactly what I was looking for, proved to be very knowledgeable and highly experienced. She kept me constantly updated and informed with any developments. I would highly recommend her.
