Client in Maldives
‘Our experience with Alderson Gray is highly exceptional. We are impressed by their professionalism and dedication in providing us the right candidates. They were considerate and willing to adjust to their client’s needs. Good case was when we had been offered a FOC for a replacement even the guarantee is not valid anymore. We would thus highly recommend Alderson Gray!’
This given after we worked on an exclusive basis with the client and provided them with a free replacement after the candidate who we had placed with them some 10 months prior resigned. Whereby normally our terms state a replacement during the first 90 days, we were prepared to extend our services to a valued client free of charge!
