I have worked in recruitment before but this was my first opportunity to explore the recruitment outsourcing side of the industry. The opportunity to work with one of the world’s best known telecom giants was very appealing, as was Resource Solutions’ affiliation with Robert Walters as they have a very good reputation in the market as an award winning business.
