Oliver says –

‘Debi has worked in recruitment most of her life! Her market knowledge and people skills are second to none. She is extremely passionate and driven but, understands recruitment is a serious business. She never forgets she is dealing with people.

A Fellow Member of the REC, Debi is extremely excited to be part of our new team and develop impression into a market leading agency, providing Harrogate and the Yorkshire regions with a first class and tailored recruitment service.

I wanted to say ‘she’s a dinosaur in the recruitment world’ but for some reason, she wasn’t keen on that!’
