"I was contacted by Spirit at a time when I was, like all people, taking stock of my career by working with Spirit I found the ideal opportunity. I found them to be conscientious, proactive and attentive to what was best for me and to also suggest alternative avenues to explore that I had not previously considered. Their knowledge about the industry was excellent. There are few in this industry that I would recommend but Spirit are definitely one of them."

The Directors and I would have no hesitation in using Spirit Executive for senior appointments in the future."
