    ​We are a small, predominantly family based Exhibition stand design and build company and were looking to hire our first Business Development Manager. We decided to work with Live Recruitment after they introduced themselves to us at a show that we were exhibiting at in an approachable and friendly manner that stuck with us as it did not feel pushy. Mollie was designated to manage the role and has been great to work with, I felt that she had a genuine interest in our business and finding not just the right experience, but also the right fit for our business. Mollie regularly kept me up to do about the role and provided great advice on the market and appropriate candidates. I would definitely use Live Recruitment service again if we ever have future staffing needs.
