What people say

Have a look at what our clients have to say, they were sitting right where you are now before we helped them.

Eleanor Jones 2

“Peter has secured employment at a firm which ticks all of the boxes for me. I had not previously come across this firm before until he introduced me only a few weeks ago. Peter knew exactly what I was looking for (quality work, but with a focus on work-life balance) and helped me to secure an offer within only two weeks of applying. I am confident that this is a great move for me in the long term, and I probably would not have submitted an application if it weren’t for Peter’s knowledge and relationship with my new employer.”

Eleanor Jones

“I have worked with Peter in the past, but had secured positions via direct applications to employers. I decided to engage Peter to help with my recent search because of his positive ‘can do’ attitude and honest approach. Peter is not a ‘needy’ recruiter and gives you the space and respect to make careful decisions. He does not pressure you into the interview room or waste time applying to numerous employers.”

Sam 3

“Sam is an absolutely brilliant recruiter and I would be very happy to recommend him to anyone looking to move firms. I have worked with several recruiters in the past, and Sam was the one to help me secure my dream position. Sam has great recruiter qualities – he is very proactive, honest, takes time to listen and to truly understand your career goals, and importantly not pushing you into any direction that would suit the current list of vacancies.Sam really understands the legal market and firms he works with and is not afraid to take on challenging mandates such as changing practice areas. Throughout the process, Sam always remained very engaged and quickly answered any queries that I had and helped me with interview preparation. Sam is very friendly and an absolute pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend him to any candidate.”

Adam 3

“First time moving firms as a 3 year PQE solicitor – keen for a new challenge in a supported, yet demanding, environment.Someone who was willing to understand my situation, listen to me and help guide me by identifying appropriate roles to develop my career.The initial persistence to speak with me (and catching me on the right day) paid off.Adam’s service was top class, from start to finish. He identified appropriate firms and built/maintained good rapport with those involved in the hiring process. Adam is a recruiter of his word – if he says he will do something, he does. He was responsive throughout my engagement and got the balance right by being encouraging and confidence promoting, without being overbearing.Adam succeeded in getting me interviews with top quality firms and a very reasonable offer of employment, in a quality firm, that would be a good move for me. I would recommend Adam without hesitation. He was a pleasure to work with and is a real credit to the recruitment industry.”

Regional Sales Director

I have known Toby for over ten years. Throughout the years, he has been extremely helpful in assisting me to find new roles, irrespective of the geographical location and seniority. In addition to this, he assisted me with locating and placing candidates when I was involved in an office setup in London.

Toby has a honest, no nonsense approach and he truly seeks to find the best fit for the advertised roles. He is well connected and unlike a large majority of recruiters in our space, very commercially aware of the eDiscovery industry.

Toby is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend engaging with him and his company.

Regional Sales Director

Sam 2

“At a key juncture in my career, I started working with Sam after he approached me with some opportunities that were of interest. Sam is knowledgeable and was communicative throughout my process. I felt informed and confident in my decision to change firms. Sam is honest, personable, informative, and well-connected in the market. Sam helped recruit me to a large, well-known international law firm, increasing my salary by over 30% in the process. Sam delivered a fantastic result, and I would not hesitate in recommending him to others.”

Adam 2

“Adam has been great and really helpful at every stage of the recruitment process. He provided information and guidance ahead of interviews and liaised effectively on my behalf with the firms. I have really valued his support throughout the process”

Mariann 1

“The Service from both Mariann and Toby has been ‘top notch’ great team to have in your corner! Dedicated and completely understand the sector”

Adam 1

“Adam called me personally and explained the opportunities that were available. This led me to pursue those live opportunities when I may not otherwise have had the confidence to do so at this stage given the pandemic. He reassured me about the job market which put my mind at ease, and so I decided to go for it and explore the possibilities”

Sam 1

“Sam was more akin to a consultant than a recruiter. He looked at what would be a good fit for my skill set and where there were potential opportunities for me to progress. Sam discounted good firms, explaining to me why he didn’t think they would fit my profile in the long-term, rather than pushing me into interviews which may have secured him a commission in the short-term, but wouldn’t have been right for me in the long-term. Sam was excellent. Very empathetic and understanding of my personal circumstances, dealing with any issues professionally and sensitively. We worked together to identify what was right for me. Sam helped me secure a position within a prestigious international law firm that will allow me to develop my experience within a growth sector, providing genuine scope for promotion in the future, and a significant salary increase.

I would unquestionably recommend Sam to anyone in the market.”
