James' recommendation

“I’ve been working closely with James O’Driscoll and Certes Computing since joining Peabody where I’ve started a significant transformation programme.  As part of this programme I’ve required an entirely new management team to assist me on this journey.  James has been instrumental in identifying this talent.  He took the time to fully understand each brief and then provided a high quality shortlist for each assignment, within the required parameters. I would highly recommend James and would be more than happy to work with him again.”

Steve Rose, Director, Peabody

“Certes found me my current role and dealing with them was a pleasure. Certes were very professional and courteous yet friendly and were always happy to help or answer questions. James kept me updated throughout the process and paid a real interest in every step. I would recommend James and Certes both for my personal future career needs and those related to current positions within my own teams.”
