“I have had the pleasure of dealing with Hawkwood on numerous occasions and I have felt that Summaya in particular has been excellent. She takes time to understand what individuals are looking for the in the role but also the culture of the business you’re going into.

She has been an absolute superstar throughout the process, calls and texts frequently and always keeps you updated. I would recommend using Hawkwood to any business in the space looking to grow their Talent Team!”
