    We recently used the services of Linton Howard POWER in the recruitment process for 5 senior people over a 2 month period, including a General Manager, Engineering Manager, Sales Manager and Financial Controller. We achieved a great outcome.

    Linton Howard assisted with the Position Descriptions, the Job Advertisement on Seek and handling all of the applications for each role. Our costs were a fraction of the usual full service recruitment costs – over the 5 roles it was under 25% of what some recruitment firms charge.
