We have worked with Balmer for a number of years and found them professional at all times. They have a range of pricing options cleverly designed to meet the needs of their clients.

They took the time to understand our business and know what we do when they get initial enquiry call, whenever possible are a filter to the sales calls we probably all get regularly.

The Balmer team are very professional and efficient. They are great ambassadors for us and take calls from clients and candidates whenever we are away from the office. They also offer a number of other complimentary support services which are very useful when required . They are a quality partner that definitely “add value” to our business.

We are very pleased with the support provided by Balmer and would happily recommend them to other businesses.
