"We needed high quality interns at short notice, and thanks to excellent shortlisting service from the team at Trusted Interns, and a marketplace which makes proactive reaching out easy, the impossible was pulled off in less than two weeks. Highly recommended, we will be using them again in the near future."

Head of Brand Marketing, Yoco
