“Using the SLCC to advertise for a recent vacancy was an excellent decision for various reasons.  The service was easy to use, value for money, cost effective and resulted in a high caliber of applicants, one of who has been appointed.

In addition, the people at SLCC are both supportive and professional, understanding the industries needs.  I would wholeheartedly recommend the SLCC recruitment service to any Town/Parish Council. “ Sally Taylor, Town Clerk – St. Anne’s Town Council
