Yes I would give the service I have received as a 9/10 - when compared with other recruiters but certainly as an approach and recruitment process Vertex is very good. I have personally spoke to Lewis and a recruitment colleague who I have to say were very professional, very clear providing timely feedback and next steps which is important as a candidate. Good communication skills demonstrated by both professionals in verbal, email and text. I would certainly recommend Vertex moving forward and most certainly recommend Vertex to Clients looking to place key people into their organisations and Change teams. I always look at define, attract and select as a 3 step process in candidate selection.. Lewis certainly scored Highley on all 3 stages from my perspective
