I have worked with Lorna on a number of occasions to find and appoint high calibre talent for a professional engineering environment. Lorna takes the time to understand the exact needs of our business and has a great track record of finding suitable candidates that have gone on to succeed. She communicates effectively with both ourselves and the candidates that we bring to interview. Whoever has eventually been successful in the role has always been very complementary about the personal and professional experience they had during the recruitment process. I have complete trust in her to deliver what we need.

Having worked with Lorna at Red Eagle and SLS Recruitment, I believe that Lorna understands both the nature of our business and our recruitment needs.  Lorna is knowledgeable and works hard to match the right candidate in regard to experience and fit.  Lorna is professional and friendly, and I am happy to recommend her services.

Lorna was the ultimate professional in matching my skills to a relevant position and keeping me well informed as the opportunity developed. Lorna made the whole process easy for me and I would highly recommend her services

Thank you for your prompt and efficient service in supporting us through a high-level recruitment for our company. This required sensitive handling and thorough sifting of a wide range of candidates in order to present us with a competitive field for interview. You did the heavy lifting for us and smoothed the way for a successful recruitment. I should be happy to recommend you to others

As a recruitment candidate Lorna Geens provided me with a very positive, supportive, personal, insightful and professional service.

I really felt that Lorna was on my side representing my interests whilst clearly working to the best interests of her client.

In summary Lorna cared which I think is the highest praise I can give.
