“Connect APAC has truly mastered the art of recruitment! Having been introduced to David through my own personal recruitment journey, I was quick to employ his services when building my team. David is quick to understand a brief and has an intimate knowledge of how to match skill sets and personalities to roles and cultures. He is well researched, detailed in his recommendations and professional and diligent in his follow up. Most importantly Dave is human - his candidates are not viewed as "numbers" and it is his personal approach that makes Dave best in class!”
