Gaynor kept in touch regularly and through Intuitive’s network of high-calibre candidates provided me with an excellent shortlist of individuals. I would recommend both Intuitive and Gaynor in an executive search in transport."

"Faye reached out to me about a role which matched my profile on LinkedIn, from the first initial contact though to starting in the role, Faye has been by my side providing guidance and support, ensuring I was set up for success. Her sunny disposition and positive attitude has made the process easy to navigate. Her warm approach and style ensured that I felt at ease throughout. I would certainly recommend Faye from a personal and professional perspective."

"I thoroughly recommend Gaynor and the team at Intuitive Recruitment. The whole process, from making the first call to starting the role, has been seamless. Nothing was too much trouble for Gaynor and I got regular updates at each stage. She went above and beyond to support me and to make sure everything went smoothly. I even got a welcome pack during my first week, which was a lovely surprise. The service provided was really friendly and professional - an excellent experience from start to finish. Many thanks Gaynor :-)"

Juliet Fowler
