“CS Energy has engaged Alchemy Recruitment on a number of occasions, and in my specific dealings with Nick, I have found him to be most professional and thorough in his research. Nick demonstrates a solid understanding of the mining and resources sector. He is a ‘fountain of knowledge’ in this space and this is most evident in the strong candidates he submits for application. I also note the emphasis he places on quality rather than quantity. Nick is responsive in his approach, he follows up when required (to a satisfactory level) and he has a proven ability to deliver on his promise, in terms of meeting the agreed timeframes and managing our expectations as the client.”
