What people say about us

Candidate

"Andrew's friendly approach and guidance made the process of looking for a job less daunting and far more manageable. He took the time to really understand what I was looking for both in terms of the role and firm.

He contacted me regarding an exciting role that I am delighted to now be in. I would certainly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for assistance."

“Dave was brilliant to work with, particularly during the unique stress of a Covid-related redundancy. His communication was excellent, he kept me well informed at every stage of the recruitment process and his interview preparation was also very useful.

Things were also rather busy in my personal life during my interview process; Dave kindly and sensitively managed the interviews around a pretty significant life event.

Many thanks Dave for all your support.”

​"Kate found me a superb role at a great firm. In getting me there, she was by absolute miles the standout recruiter I’d been in touch with.

I felt like Kate was on my side every step of the way, had properly listened to me, was honest, and very professional. I’d recommend her without hesitation."

​"As a result of COVID 19, a role in which I was due to start, disappeared over night, leaving me uncertain about the future. Thanks to Dave’s understanding of the legal sector, I was able to start a new chapter in my professional career within a matter of days.

Dave was brilliant throughout the whole recruitment process and I cannot thank him enough for his support."
