I am writing to thank you and the team at Oxford HR for all the work done, and guidance given, on our search for a chief executive for Rwanda Action.
I know that we could not have found such an impressive candidate with such an excellent fit with our organisation, without you and the team at Oxford HR. I also know how much work has gone on behind the scenes to make this appointment possible: the preparation of the initial brief, discussions with candidates, the collating of all the information and the reporting back to the board
