"Chemical Search is a first rate executive recruiter who really go the extra mile. They are strong and consultative in helping to crystallise requirements, can pinpoint candidates quickly and display lateral thinking in producing a good range of people to choose from. Their contacts across the plastics world are excellent and we'd recommend them to any company who values professionalism over masses of poorly-targeted CV's!"
