A note to recruiters
We hate getting calls and emails from recruiters. We find it repulsively annoying and we always place recruiters who approach us in this way on a blacklist. We've been around for many years now so we know every trick in the book that recruiters like to use so please don't contact us - even if you've got the best CV on your desk that you've seen in years from someone who's immediately available and has specifically asked you to contact Robert Higgins on their behalf!
