I have used Quinn Allan to recruit a high-performance business improvement and program team. James constructively engaged with us to understand our requirements and he really worked hard to pull together a team that was amazing. Similarly, again we needed a strong data analyst with very specific experience, and Tony was able to proactively engage to understand our requirements and placed the perfect candidate with us.

I have worked with Quinn Allan and the team there for a number of years and was introduced to them when I was working at a previous organisation. I have always found James and the team to understand the talent market and its constant changes extremely well, have deep networks and deliver on what they say they will which is always important to me when working with external partners. The Quinn Allan team are experts in their field and always a pleasure to deal with. I have introduced Quinn Allan to my current organisation, after them having no dealings in the past due to the above facts and look forward to a continued long-term partnership.
