Samantha Swiss – Chief executive, KangaNews

“It was a big decision for us to use a recruitment company for the first time this year, as we are a relatively small company operating on a tight budget. However, I can honestly say I’m delighted with the result achieved for us. Steven Shephard has a real knack at getting to know a company’s requirements and modus operandi, and matching these almost exactly with relevant candidates. His knowledge of the publishing industry and connections with an excellent pool of talented candidates ensured that we found the two candidates we were looking for without any trouble at all. This is especially impressive as our requirements were relatively complicated: we were looking for candidates who were either based in Australia or willing to move there to fill the roles. I would have no hesitation in contacting Sync Recruitment again, next time we are looking for journalists.”
