  • Career Genius is our first call we make when we have the need to replace any member of staff. Our staff turnover has drastically reduced over the years and this is largely attributed to the right calibre of candidates being introduced to our company via Craig and his team. It is always a pleasure doing business with them.

  • Finding the right staff can be challenging and nerve-racking, however over the past year and a half, Craig has taken the hassle and stress out of finding our staff. He always goes above and beyond, making sure we get that right fit.
