CEO IMTF Group

“Having been approached by Xpertsforyou about a role at IMTF, the potential role and company was exactly what I was looking for. Pamela supported me through the whole hiring process, and much more, once employment contract was signed, Pamela not only took care only of working permit procedure but also supported all the way during the relocation including finding accommodation in advance so I could easily start my new employment without any issues or hinderances. Xpertsforyou cares for their candidates all the way, from the beginning to the end!”
