The briefing was very positive last week and i was hugely impressed by your consultant. out of the four agencies we invited he really impressed the partners with his understanding of the requirement and did engage really well with them, and asked some excellent questions.

Your consultant presented me with some opportunities to interview with firms that i thought were beyond my reach. she was with me every step of the way and encouraged me to think beyond my existing approach to work and life. she was friendly, accessible and provided support when i needed it the most.

Just wanted to put in writing how grateful I am for all your support and encouragement, in addition to your hard work, that has helped me secure my new job. It's incredibly difficult to know where to start when you're trying to move cities and to quantify exactly what type of new job and opportunity you're trying to find! But you have made the process so easy which has been invaluable whilst i have been working full time and moving house! you've gone over and above.

Courtesy of her invaluable knowledge and can-do attitude, your consultant was instrumental in helping me secure an nq role with a leading national law firm. from the outset she was exceptionally personable and proactive in her approach, often tailoring her services around my work schedule in order to regularly update me throughout the process. highly reliable and would surely recommend.

I just wanted to touch base with you as I saw you shared an article about my firm's promotions - it seems strange that it was only 18 months ago that you helped me secure a solicitor role here. I can honestly say it was the best decision. I'm so pleased to have been promoted so quickly after changing practice area and this is really testament to the fact that it was the right role for me.

i was extremely impressed and grateful for your help and advice when i was looking to move from consultancy and back into a law firm role. your consultant's advice on the presentation and balance of my cv was clear, precise and insightful. she also took time to meet and to provide a full briefing on the firms to which we sent my cv.

Your consultant was extremely friendly, which is always a good start! when preparing for the interview, there wasn't a great deal of readily available information about the firm i was interviewing with, so her insight into the sort of firm they were, and what they would be looking for, was invaluable. her advice was obviously sound because they made me an offer the next day. once i had received the offer, i found her to be an extremely competent negotiator. i was very grateful for her advice and to have her in my corner at this point.

Your consultant listened to my requirements and needs carefully and worked hard to help me obtain three interviews within a week. She provided me with in-depth guidance and was quick to update me with progress on submission of applications and following interviews. Having her assist me in my search reduced the stress and pressure, meaning that I could totally focus on my interview preparation. I was lucky enough to be offered an exciting role with a highly regarded firm within a couple of weeks of your consultant coming on board. A big thank you for all the hard work and for making it a straightforward and ultimately happy experience.

I've worked closely with your consultant for a number of years and he's placed me in firms on two occasions now. i genuinely wouldn't go elsewhere. he knows the South West market really well and he gets to know you as a candidate really well also. lots of recruitment agents get instructed to find candidates but few really think about whether candidates are a good fit for a firm and how to manage that candidate's longer term career. he does both.
