(Successful candidate)
"I was alerted to a vacancy by an ex colleague for a position I had missed. The deadline had passed but I spoke to Bryony that evening twice outside normal working hours. My application was handled swiftly and efficiently and I was kept up to date with what was happening in the process. A couple of diary issues were accommodated and I subsequently was offered the position which I have accepted. The most straightforward and efficient process I have been involved in the last 5 years."
