In specific, working with Kamran has been an enjoyable experience, Kamran possesses excellent interpersonal skills that has helped us recruit the right individuals in the right positions. His efforts in understanding our business, culture, and needs made the recruitment process and interviews enjoyable. The partnership with Redstone has definitely helped us access a large pool of highly qualified and suitable candidates for multiple roles who are expected to remain in our organisation for many years to come."

"I can only recommend working with Redstone Commodities and particularly Ross Godwin. He won't quit until the right candidate is found. He's professional, communicative, well connected and just a pleasure to work with. I've partnered with a lot of headhunters, but Redstone is the only one I've stuck with for years."
