Job Search – ARM

She (Laura) is completely on top of all of our roles and knows where everything is. I have been using ARM as our “4th Resourcer”. Each SLA I have given her has been hit, and on top of that she has got her team to put a big focus on the roles we are struggling with as well. It has been a huge help in enhancing the market intel we are giving our hiring managers.

I know she has a huge amount of clients she is working with at the moment but the amount of time & effort she has dedicated us at LM, you would never be able to tell!

Completely awesome stakeholder management 😊
