John’s testimonials

HR Manager | Global Law Firm

“I’ve known John for a long time. He is the only recruiter that has been with me from the early years of my HR career until now. I trust him to have my and my company’s best interests and the skills and personality of his candidate fully at the top of the page, every time. I have had more long term successful recruits stay and grow with the company’s I have worked in that have come from John Bruce than any other recruitment company, probably combined. He is personable, easy to deal with and knows what we want. As long as we both continue in the same fields, I will continue to call him first.”
