Programme Manager

I first worked with Sultan while leading a wealth management compliance s166 project in London. Sultan and his company have supported me exclusively in building a project team at Towergate made up of come very high-quality contractors from the market. I would highly recommend Sultan for anyone who is looking to hire high quality contractors for regulatory projects.


Programme Director

Sultan has project managed a high-volume resource with exceptional quality of contractors for multiple projects that I have led during my time working at EY. From start to finish their quality of service, understanding and project resourcing qualities have been second to none. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a pain free solution to building a compliance project team and ensuring the quality of contractors is sustained throughout the duration of the project.


Senior Programme Director

I had the pleasure of working with Sultan while I worked at HSBC. At every step, he was professional and the right mix of tenacious but not bothersome (a rare balance). His candidates were always well prepared and his debriefs stellar. If you are in the need of professional support, for your recruitment, then Sultan should most certainly be top-of-mind.


Senior Global Project Manager

I have been working directly with Sultan, for the past 2-3 years while leading a Europe-wide change programme for Finance. The team has made several appointments through him both temporary contractors and permanent roles, during this period. Sultan has made the effort to get to know the individual needs of my department and function and build up a strong relationship with both myself and key members of my team – something which I believe is essential to adding value as a recruitment consultant.
