"I engaged Stephen Mothersole and his company Chemical Search on numerous occasions to source really 'hard to find' senior level personnel. I was always delighted by the quality of candidates presented and reflect that all those we hired over the years are still with us and performing very well. Stephen always had an intuitive grasp of our needs and with it the ability to only ever send highly suitable candidates time and again. I have not found any other organisation coming close to Chemical Search."
