 “A man’s worth is no greater than his ambitions”

My drive within recruitment comes from helping people, both clients and contractors to achieve their goals and ambitions. I want to be the reason someone gets their dream job, or why a client secures a big contract win. It motivates me to work the extra hours, and deliver only the best service.

EPG are a fantastically ambitious company, and though we’re still young compared to others; we retain a high level of experience within our department heads and founder. We are going to be successful.
