"I have on several occasions used the services of Christian Schoyen (ESR) in recruiting new employees to my company, both in my present job (IT Fornebu) and earlier (Entra). The reason for using ESR in recruiting personnel is their remarkable ability to find the right candidate with just the right personality, ability, and competence for the position. In my judgement ESR excels in being able to understand the needs of my company when looking for a candidate for a position. In spite of very strict demands to competence within a quite narrow field of competence, ESR has time and time again produced a list of candidates who most often surpass my expectations in a positive way. The 6 – 7 searches they have done for me have resulted in 100%satisfying result every time. Not only for me and my company but for the person being recruited. I can strongly recommend the services of Christian Schøyen and ESR."
