“I sought Jonathan’s assistance in kicking off my career in compliance in the summer of 2017, having graduated from university without a finance-based degree, or any relevant experience. What I did have was passion and interest, and he took it upon himself to find me a position, providing me with invaluable assistance both prior to, and during, the interview process – with several phone calls and then practice interviews over Skype prior to each interview. The first firm he put me forward to, I got the job at, which is testament not only to his tireless and personalised help, but also the fact that he cares about those whom he’s helping – something that can’t be said for all recruitment consultants”Emily Piper – Compliance Associate – September 2017
