Billy commented: “I feel very fortunate to have had outstanding support from G+S since I joined in December. The constant guidance throughout the process, alongside the valuable time spent in mock interviews with my colleagues was excellent. I really don’t feel like I could’ve been in a better position to pass the assessment anywhere else.”
