Here are a selection of things that our clients, past and present, have said about us.


We have a commitment to developing the very best talent the market has to offer, so instructing Nathan and Alan at TheTalentFinders was an easy choice to find that talent. From start to finish their service was of the highest quality, we felt well informed, they were honest and most importantly they provided a great addition to DG8 – I have no hesitation recommending TheTalentFinders and will certainly be using their services again.
