…always found the consultants as SOS to be helpful and professional. SOS take time to understand the requirements of our business / each individual role, and submit CVs accordingly. They keep in touch on a regular basis and are quick to respond to queries whether by email or by phone. I would recommend them to friends looking for work or other companies wishing to recruit quality staff.

I had the skills and determination, but the opportunity to utilize both has been made available by SOS – finally, I can settle down in an environment which is not simply a job, but a CAREER!
