Throughout the process the team at Fairfield took the time to understand our needs, translate them to a strong selling document on the company, and bring a strong slate of candidates to the table for each role. I particularly appreciated the high touch customer service they offered throughout the process each time. In the end we secured three high value candidates that have taken our business to new levels.
