Claire, Head of Travel (APAC)

Fay is an absolute dream to work with! Re-entering the job market can be a daunting task. Personally, finding myself on a job hunt in a COVID-19 world, in a severely affected industry, I was feeling massively overwhelmed. Fay really came to the rescue, with years of experience and having seen thousands upon thousands of CVs, (the good, the bad and the ugly!) she really knows what she is talking about. She is patient and constructive in her advice and can really help you to present yourself and your skill set in the most effective and attractive way, on paper, on LinkedIn and in person.

“I am happy to recommend Fay. An experienced, knowledgeable individual, Fay goes out of her way to understand her client/customer needs.  

I have seen Fay deliver both in a professional capacity as she sourced and recruited several excellent candidates for our company and also on a personal level with career support and advice.
