“I’ve worked with many recruiters over the years and have always tried two have a mixed portfolio of agencies. My rationale being that sometimes I need a larger agency with wide coverage to get a recruitment drive moving fast. Optima, although not the largest recruitment agency, have consistently outperformed all other agencies on my books with in terms of quality and quantity of candidates. As a result, I have for the first time in my recruiting history considered an exclusive relationship. Please keep up the good work Optima!”
