Testimonial – David Hurst Editor Online Recruitment Magazine
“Keith is a founding father of the Online Recruitment industry. Without his pioneering work building and developing Jobsite and as a result the role of the job boards in the recruitment process, the online recruitment industry would not have developed at the pace it has. His irrepressible enthusiasm and good humour along with a keen eye for business make him a delight to work with.”
