"With our recruitment needs last year Paradigm gave us high quality candidates allowing us to achieve a better then 1 in 4 take on rate, this says something for Paradigm's work in selecting candidates that want to work with our type of organisation and from our perspective people that fitted our needs not just in one country but at least eight or more. A good organisation to work with from account management also, as a manager recruiting my tasks and time allocation were minimised by their excellent management and co-ordination of candidate interviews."
Graham Taylor, Director Technical Support - EMEA, UK & Ireland
