  • Amey Honebon

    HR Administrator, Parvalux Electric Motors Ltd

    “We’ve been working with Holt Engineering for several months now and no matter what kind of position we give to Nathan, usually with a pretty limited description at the time to what we actually need, he always manages to send us candidates that are of a high calibre and relevant to the vacancy we have. Nathan completely understands the requirements of Parvalux on a personal note as well as professional which makes the whole process such an ease. It’s always a pleasure working together to fill vacancies and are yet to be disappointed. We will definitely be continuing to work with Holt Engineering in the future”
