"I'd just like to say a quick thank you for the excellent service provided by one of your consultants, Lucy Phillips.I've worked with many recruitment agencies in the past, and Lucy has far suppassed all of them with her tenacity and support throughout what has been a long job hunt. Unfortunately the job I have eventually accepted was through a direct application, but it's a sign of how good Lucy has been that I actually feel guilty that she won't be receiving the commision that she more than deserves. If I enter the job market again in future, Lucy will be the first number I call, and I won't hesitate to recommend her to any colleagues looking for work in future."

"When my employer went into liquidation I was worried that I would have to find a new role in a hurry and that my career plan would be knocked off track. However, just the opposite happened. Julien Hofer at Datascope found me a number of opportunities - all of which were exactly what I was looking for. I chose Activision and have never looked back! I couldn't have done this without Datascope's help. Their level of contacts is second to none and Julien's ability to spot opportunities and open doors was amazing. I would definitely recommend Datascope."

The service offered was unrivalled in my experience."

"Even though I didn't get my current job through Datascope you were a great support while looking for a job. I'm recommending you to friends whenever I hear one of them is looking for a vacancy in the games industry and working outside Germany is an option for him/her. I will definitely come back to you when I decide to look for new challenges and find a new employer
What I especially enjoyed about Datascope was the fast, extremely friendly and personal yet competent and professional contact. Looking for an opening, aided by Datascope, was definitely a lot easier, faster and more rewarding than the usual ‘write email, send CV, don't receive a reply’ :)"
