    “Looking for work in a different country than you live in is not easy. Holt Executive found me, and from day one pushed and found me the greatest job. They were on top of everything at all times, from finding me the job right through the interview process, always chasing and checking during the process. If you ever need someone to find and look after you while job hunting. Holt Executive in my opinion is the only business to approach.”

  • Leonardo

    Commercial Director

    “As a contractor that has been placed by Holt Executive, I cannot recommend their services highly enough. The team took the time to understand my skills and experience and what I was looking for from a contract position and listened to my requirements as an individual. Their communication throughout the placement process was exceptional and they continue to take the time to check in on me with regular 'how's it going’ chats. As a fairly seasoned contractor, I have interacted with many agencies and recruiters and Holt Executive is right up there with the best of them.”
