    ​I just wanted to take some time out to express my appreciation and delight whilst partnering with Vickerstock, namely Hugh to fulfill previous and current Stryker open roles. Hugh’s attention to detail is excellent, Hugh’s industry understanding and technical knowledge is a major bonus for Technical/Engineering hiring managers,  consequently his subject matter expertise results in relevant CV’s hitting my inbox, which in turn optimizes my time as I am not sifting through irrelevant Resumes. I have spread the word internally to the effect that any hiring managers looking for Engineering/Technical contractors give Vickerstock a call.
