Not only were the responsibilities of the role explained to me in great detail, but they also went to great lengths to really understand the depth of my technical, managerial and leadership experience and capabilities. What impressed me the most was their personal touch in building a strong relationship with me as a candidate and in maintaining regular contact with me on the status of the role throughout the application process”.
