"I'd just like to say how pleased I was with the quality of the candidates that Gary Taylor of Merit Engineering Resources Ltd supplied to me. This was when I was Project Engineering Manager - Civil & Rail for African Minerals Ltd in Sierra Leone, West Africa. I was recruiting for my Project Engineering Staff for the Tonkolili Mine to Tagrin Port Rail Construction."

Rick S, HR Director

"Since becoming aware of Merit Engineering and its Director Gary Taylor I have nothing but praise for the service and concern shown to place the right person in the right position thus guaranteeing that both parties to the contract are satisfied for the complete period.

It is very evident that Gary Taylor has a long term satisfactory relationship with his Clients and this can only be achieved by placing "Right Person in Right Position" thus guaranteeing repeat business for his company and especially for 'Us' his clients. In the short time that I have known and used Gary Taylor as a service provider with his connections to some very serious players in the Engineering and Construction Industries I have seen by his ability and care that my qualifications & skills, length of service overseas and peripheral knowledge is all taken into consideration when looking at his "Book" of open positions.

I have kept fully aware of the progress of each application, how the HR and Engineering team are reviewing my resume and when interview is going to take place. Not an easy task as I reside overseas myself. Preparation for interview is thorough and is of great assistance, the follow up afterwards regarding medicals, work permits, visas etc is also exemplary. Overall in the short time that I have used Gary Taylor I have nothing but praise for his efforts and pursuit of completion."
