    "I was recently speaking with Sarah at Holt Recruitment in my search for a new job as a paint sprayer. I cannot fault, in any way, my experience. I was met with the friendliest, most professional recruiter I’ve dealt with, who made looking for a job seem more like I was just chatting to a mate about work, which is probably the only approach that would’ve worked for me personally. Two, maybe three, weeks down the line and I have a start date. I would recommend Holt to anyone. Sarah, thank you again. You’ve been amazing."
