"I think this gift of one month's sabbatical is a fantastic demonstration of how our current board and management team recognise the importance of a good work / life balance, something that is not always recognised in our world of recruitment - thank you all for this. As of yet I don’t know the exact detail of where we will go but I do know that I am going to take this chance to have a fantastic summer with my children – feel very lucky to have the chance to do this!"

Elaine Tulip-Johnson, Managing Consultant

"I was absolutely over the moon to find out about our new reward scheme – a month’s sabbatical once you’ve completed 5 years’ service!   I’ve never had this sort of reward before and it by far exceeds a financial gift.

I’ve chosen to take my sabbatical over the school summer holidays, to spend much needed and quality time with my children.  We plan to go camping in Cornwall for the first week, visit South Wales, Cheshire and Norfolk during the second week, returning back to South Cornwall with my husband for another 2-week mammoth camping holiday – we like camping…..!  

My kids are incredibly excited (as am I) as this really is a once in a lifetime chance to spend such a dedicated amount of time with them.Thank you so much – I literally cannot wait!"
