ABOUT US

‘I have been working with Julie and Bill for over 20 years. Together they have built a first class reputation for talent management in the beverage sector. I have been placed by them a number of times but more than this, Carling Partnership has worked with me on many occasions to provide great talent to the organisations I have worked for over the years. I can say for me they are the “go to” Team you can trust. In particular Julie goes the extra mile to only forward candidates to organisations whom she can fully stand over. She also meticulously gets to know her candidates before recommending them. Their reputation is indivisible.’
