Natalie was introduced to me by another Partner in the Customise Talent team, Leanne Bell, whom I've known for many years. Natalie met with me to gain an understanding of the company and the role. She listened to what I needed, she gave me options without bombarding me; she then absolutely nailed in with the right candidate. The way I would describe Natalie is "right first time!"
