Senior Electronics Engineer


Imogen was really helpful during my job search. Although I found work from elsewhere, if I were to look for future opportunities, Imogen would be one of the first people I would get in contact with. It felt easier to trust the information and advice Imogen gave to me. The recruitment process is quite taxing and confusing, so it is refreshing to speak to someone who takes their time to understand my profile and find the right vacancies.

Program Manager

Biggest opportunity

Imogen introduced me to the biggest opportunity I've recently had in my career. At all times she kept me informed with updates on the process, always with a friendly and yet professional approach. I highly recommend her to any employer that seeks a quality and trustworthy service when hiring new employees.

Senior Embedded Software Engineer

Very professional

Imogen has been very professional and was such a good support throughout the entire recruitment process. She makes sure that you are well informed during each process of the recruitment. She made an extra effort to reach out to check I was setting in well at the company on day one, and weeks after I had started.

Software Engineer

Professional and supportive

Imogen has been incredibly professional and supportive through the whole recruitment process for my new role. She made time to listen to any questions I had, even contacting me after office hours to ensure I had all the information needed for my interviews the following day. She definitely championed me from the start and I am very grateful to her for doing so. She’s friendly and approachable and I would recommend her to anyone looking for work in my field.

Principal Electronic Engineer

The best recruitment professional

Imogen is perhaps the best recruitment professional I have had a chance to work with.. She was consistent with follow up calls and gave detailed interview feedback, something that I found helpful in securing the role.

Founder and CEO

I would highly recommend

I've worked with Imogen several times now on both sides of the recruitment process and always found the process smooth, efficient and effective. I've found that unlike a lot of recruiters she has a much better grasp of technical skills and requirements and is therefore very effective at targeting the right companies and people. I would highly recommend her for both job and employee seekers.

Design Engineering Manager

My first port of call

I first worked with Imogen when I was searching for a new job role; throughout this search, Imogen ensured that my priorities were always top of the agenda and took the time to understand exactly the type of role / company I was looking for. After successfully getting an offer and subsequently starting the new role, Imogen maintained support and had a positive impact on my settling into the company. Some time later, when I was required to recruit engineers for the team, my first port of call was to reach out to Imogen, based on my previous experience. She took the time to understand the type of candidates we required, and was effective in quickly providing CVs and subsequently arranging interviews with these engineers. I was happy with the calibre of candidates sent to us, and we had soon put an offer out. To summarise, I would not hesitate to recommend Imogen to both engineers looking for a new role, and managers / team leads looking to expand their teams, based on her attention to detail and dedication to placing suitably matched engineers with companies

System Technology Leader

Absolutely top level

Imogen worked on a few recruitment opportunities with me directly. Her expertise on defining customers needs and potential candidates requirements are absolutely top level. She is always sharply finding the key matching points and is the key media to liaise both parties throughout the whole recruitment process. Her professionalism is highly recognised and endorsed. Her skill sets are highly adaptable to both established organisation with clear requirement on candidates and newly establishing organisations for strategic roles. Great experience in working with her!
