“Our relationship with Canary Wharf and City began a few years ago after meeting Michelle Palmer at an Minority Supplier Development UK event.  MSDUK brings together corporate clients with diverse suppliers for mutual benefit.  We met many suppliers that day, but Michelle and her organisation really stood out in the niche of the market they served.  Michelle’s enthusiasm was contagious  – job done MSDUK and what a great find in Michelle and Canary Wharf And City!

We choose to work with Michelle due to her professionalism, her unique approach to technology recruitment, experience and extensive knowledge of the industry.  She demonstrated that she understood our diversity initiatives in sourcing the best candidates.  We were confident in the service that she could provide our company and that she could help us build our European IT team with quality candidates.  And we were spot on – Michelle has been able to deliver quality employees and has assisted us in building our IT team from the ground up in Europe”

How would you describe the Canary Wharf & City recruitment experience?

“From a human resources standpoint, after embedding the recruitment process, I can honestly say Canary Wharf and City are simple and straightforward to use.  They are great at understanding our internal culture and employment needs, and they know what candidates will best suit our organisation.  They really do what “they say on the tin” and the values they uphold as a company similar to the values that are at the core of our business.”
