What business leaders are saying about Gavin McDonald

The Quinn Allan team helped rebuild a team of tax technical specialists in the midst of an extremely challenging market where good talent is difficult to find. I have found the team to be very proactive, honest, responsive and capable of understanding the specific needs of my niche area.

Working with Quinn Allan (Gavin and Rachel) has been an absolute pleasure. From the very beginning, they demonstrated a deep understanding of our organisational culture, values and the specific capabilities we were seeking in potential candidates. Their diligence in sourcing, screening and shortlisting candidates ensured we received a highly qualified and capable pool of interviewees to consider which saved us time in the hiring process. They kept us informed at every stage of the process and offered us valuable insights to help us make the right decision. Thanks to Quinn Allan, we have been able to fill key positions in our finance team with candidates who have been able to integrate seamlessly into our team. Their expertise, dedication and personalised approach sets them apart as a recruitment agent who genuinely cares about the success of their clients and I look forward to continuing our partnership in the future.
