Having worked with Charmain for a number of years, I love the fact that she is very detail orientated and very specific to the clients needs. Charmain has always put the client’s first and takes time and does research which many agencies forget about. I absolutely recommend Charmain and her vast experience to any luxury retailer.

Charmain takes the time to understand what you want and what you need in your people. I was always safe in the knowledge that only relevant candidates would be submitted, taking time to consider both experience and culture fit. She has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the premium and luxury field. Charmain has a very personal approach to clients and candidates alike, is honest, flexible and consistent. Charmain would always be my first contact for any recruitment requirements.

Charmain is the reason I’ve found my dream role in the prestigious company I have now joined. She really does mentor you pre interview stage to be the best you can be, but most importantly ‘Be Yourself’. She knows her market and she knows where to place candidates. The feel and passion instilled in her resonates to ensuring she gets you to where you deserve to be.
