Thank you to Nick and the team at QED Legal for assisting me in finding employment as a Dispute Resolution Solicitor. It took approximately three weeks from my initial discussion with Nick to receive my job offer which was fantastic given that this was over the Christmas period. The entire process was very smooth and stress-free this was down to Nick's efficiency. Nick kept me up-to-date at all stages of the process and was happy to discuss pre-interview strategy and chase post-interview feedback promptly on my behalf. I would certainly recommend Nick and the team at QED Legal to anybody who is looking for a new position.
Carly F, North West
Hi Nick, This is just to let you know that I have received the offer letter and have now replied accepting the position. I will let them know about a start date just as soon as I have heard back from my present manager and HR. Thanks again for your assistance in relation to this. I am truly delighted to be joining this firm. Kind regards Neil
Neil C, North West
It's been a pleasure to work with Jem, she took all of the stress away from finding a new position and was always on hand to answer any queries I had and dealt with the process very efficiently. Thank you Jem, I really appreciate the work you have put in helping me find a new role!
Charlotte H, East Midlands
Jemma helped me secure a newly qualified position. She was attentive, efficient and listened to what I was looking for in my first role. Thank you ever so much.
D Mistry, East Midlands
Sarah Ward was a fantastic agent throughout the process and never hesitated to go above and beyond what I had expected of her, helping with any concerns that I had. She advised me as needed and never hesitated to make inquiries of my new employer on my behalf, getting to the crux of the issue at impressive speed,while also being incredibly supportive and a pleasure to work with. On the basis of my own experience I would recommend QED Legal to any other professionals who are looking to find their ideal position at a new firm.
Jack D, Wales
From the moment I submitted my application for a role, I instantly received a call from Deborah. She was friendly and encouraging, and I was honestly very impressed with her professionalism. Throughout the process, Deborah was very pro-active and worked diligently from her end until I secured the role with the firm. I appreciated how Deborah always ensured that she kept in touch with me and kept me up to date. I would highly recommend Deborah.
Dena H, Scotland
After being made redundant Deborah was absolutely amazing at helping me find my new job. She was always there whenever I needed her and so easy to talk to which really helped me at such a difficult time. Deborah was interested in me, my family and my life - not just trying to find me a job...this meant a lot. She has got a brilliant sense of humour and we get along great (I feel I have known her for years). Nothing was ever too much trouble for her. It has been an absolute pleasure and I will definitely be recommending Deborah to friends and family.
Emma H, Scotland
Deborah is helpful, supportive and always on hand for any questions or concerns you have. She’s easy to talk to and gives you advice without being pushy. I also found her to be very proactive - she doesn’t mess about!
I Cuthbert, Scotland
kept me updated throughout the recruitment process, either by phone or email,
and was incredibly helpful. Greg also provided sound advice about the
interview process. Any time I called the office all the staff I spoke
with were helpful and friendly. QED provide a very good and professional
Heidi G, Cambridgeshire
Graham is personable, patient and responsive and has a lot of contacts which really boosts your chances of finding and securing a suitable role. I would highly recommend Graham to anyone looking for a career move.
Louisa W, Yorkshire
I have used Graham's services as a recruitment consultant on more than one occasion and I will return to him again because he is amazing and an absolute joy to deal with. He takes his time to get to know you and he works tirelessly to get you into the right firm because he is well connected. He is completely genuine, trustworthy and takes the time to chat through your options. Just when you feel like you have hit rock bottom, he knows how to boost your confidence and find positivity in your situation. I have been placed twice by Graham and both times I have had the pleasure of working at excellent law firms.
Lisa V, Yorkshire
Graham was extremely helpful and honest throughout my job search. Graham has a lot of industry knowledge and contacts at firms throughout the region.
Thomas Mc, West Yorkshire
David is a genuine, friendly and hard working recruiter who is great to deal with and does everything that he can to make a move as smooth as possible. He is very pro-active and positive and you always have a clear picture of where things are at and are going. Very impressed.
Mark G, East Midlands
Dear Kim, I write to thank you for a job well done on your part. I will be joining this new firm and I would not have done it without you. You were professional and knowledgeable regarding the role and I was impressed with your negotiating skills on my behalf. I can only say you were nothing short of a miracle. Thank you again.
Tin T, Essex
Hi Nick - Had a brilliant first week and really settled in!! 8mins commute to work!! Thanks again for all your help! Regards Jodie
Jodie H, North West
Sarah was very helpful in helping me find a new job and was with my every step of the way! Would highly recommend!
Sophie R, Wales
Greg has been extremely pro-active in finding me a great new position with a well regarded local firm. Returning to work after maternity leave in a new area could have been very daunting, especially when I wanted to return to work on a part-time basis to fit in around my family yet still have the opportunities to progress in my career. Greg took the time to fully understand what I was looking for in a new role and made the process very easy, taking away the stress of job-hunting in a new area, and by using his contacts and knowledge of local firms was able to secure several interviews for me within a week at a number of excellent firms in the region. As a result of his pro-active approach, which resulted in two job offers, I have been able to secure a new position which provides the opportunity to continue to develop my career with a leading regional firm whilst maintaining a work-life balance which fits in with my priorities and young family.
Stephanie C, East Anglia
I have found QED very helpful. Greg acted for me in finding my new position and he did everything possible to help me secure the job. The communication was excellent and it was nice to deal with an agent who seemed to genuinely care about me and securing me the job.
Sally W, Lincolnshire
Deborah was truly excellent. A true professional throughout, she completely surpassed my expectations and found a suitable role for me within a week. I cannot thank her enough and would not hesitate to recommend her services to others.
Katherine P, Scotland
Graham contacted me by phone very soon after noting my online application for a new position. He carefully explained to me the new position that was on offer.
From this point, Graham was prompt, helpful and precise. When I had a specific request he dealt with it efficiently.
He arranged each interview with due care, and was very helpful with information from the firm following each interview. He also advised me on the offer.
I would not hesitate in recommending QED Legal.
Ben L, Yorkshire
Neil was brilliant in not only finding opportunities for me but roles that were going to progress my career. I wouldn't hesitate to contact him again in the future.
Iain K, Scotland
I am regularly contacted by legal recruitment consultants working for the “usual suspects” who promise the world but never hear from them again; there is nothing worse in my opinion. I would just like to make you aware of the determination and hard work that Sarah put in, not only to ensure I was successful for the role but for the regular contact and follow up correspondence she provided, she went over and above and dealing with her was an absolute pleasure and in my view she is an asset to your company.
James T, Wales
Neil is an extremely efficient and effective recruitment agent who kept me informed and supported throughout the process of my employment search. Within 3 days of having contacted Neil, an interview with a firm was already scheduled and I received an offer of employment the same day as my interview! I would recommend him to anyone and have been very impressed and pleased with his service.
Selina M, Scotland
My experience with Sarah and QED legal has been nothing short from fantastic. Sarah has kept me updated through the whole process, offering help and guidance when needed and always following up on promises.
I would highly recommend Sarah and QED to anyone who wishes to find a new vocation and could not thank Sarah enough for everything she has done for me.
Rosie T, Wales
I am grateful that I came across QED legal and more importantly Greg Whittaker who was very helpful throughout the process of helping me find employment in my chosen field of law. I had given up on finding employment but I took a chance with QED legal and Greg pointed me in the right direction on the positions that would suit my experience and my future prospects of becoming a Solicitor.
I would recommend QED legal to any person who is looking for a prosperous career in law. I would also recommend Greg Whittaker as the point of contact as I believe with his experience and great results, he is the best person to direct the journey of finding the right employment to suit any applicant.
I would like to say thank you to QED legal and Greg Whittaker for playing an important in starting my career.
Kay M, East Anglia
Hi Graham - I've heard from the firm and I've handed in my notice today. Thank you for your help and guidance throughout! I would definitely use you again if the time came and I'll also recommend you to anyone in need!
Thank you, Katy
Katy P, Yorkshire
Neil took the exact right approach to find the right law firm for me when relocating from London to Scotland. He understood exactly what expectations I had and enabled a fast progress. I am very grateful for the work he put into my placement and the negotiations. I would definitely recommend him.
Judith M, Scotland
Thanks so much for everything you've done Kim, within a week of you sending my CV I had an interview and secured an offer. Not only that but you helped me secure a training contract AND negotiate my salary! I honestly don't think you could have done anymore, I couldn't recommend you or QED anymore.
Richard G, Essex
Hi Greg Thank you for your email. It is a great opportunity, I am really looking forward to getting started. Thank you very much for arranging the interview and for your support and guidance since. Jo called me earlier and confirmed the salary increase, which is always brilliant and gave me some more information. She is getting an email out to me today including the job offer letter, I shall let you know once this is received. Once again I would like to thank you, you made a time I thought to be very stressful so easy and relaxed. Kind regards
Amy D, East Anglia
Chris has been very helpful and professional throughout the whole recruitment process. He has provided useful advice, support and encouragement and stayed in regular contact with me from start to finish.
Hi Graham (Rawlinson) Thank you for your kind help and support
Very professional service thanks once again for all the help
and guidance provided
Sophia R, Yorkshire
Kim and her
colleagues at QED were very professional during my recruitment process. Kim
provided excellent guidance and helpful advice for my interviews as well as
negotiating the job offer I wanted.
Rav P, Essex
Sophia has been
outstanding to work with. I was very weary of seeking new employment due to my
circumstances however Sophia took me on, listened to me and found me the
perfect fit. Throughout the whole process I could not have asked for
anyone more supportive and attentive as Sophia. I knew what was going on at all
times and even if there was no news she would call to let me know that was the
case. Sophia genuinely had my best interests in mind and that was demonstrated
through her professionalism and advice given. I will recommend her to anyone
who is seeking new employment as she made the process so stress free and simple.
Christina H, Berkshire
Hi Chris - Just a short to note to thank you for all your help in finding me a new
position. You have been very supportive and always kept in touch
throughout the process. You have answered all my queries along the way
and provided me with some invaluable information which has allowed me to make
the correct work choices. Thank you once again and if I ever find myself
in the position of looking for alternative employment in the future I will
certainly contact you.
Sharon B, Scotland
Sophia, I wanted to
take this opportunity of saying a massive 'thank you' for your excellent work
on my behalf. It was very reassuring knowing that you were always on to it for
me. You always did what you said you would do by way of letting me know how
things were going even if there wasn't anything much happening.
The search for
employment is always tough and stressful, and the periods of silence between
applications, interviews, etc., are really hard but you alleviated much of
I will certainly
recommend you to anyone I know who might be looking in your area.
Kind regards and
many thanks again,
Aled L, Berkshire
experience of working with Sophia was excellent throughout and I would
recommend her very highly. It made a real difference that she clearly has a
very strong relationship with her clients and that she takes the time to get to
know you to make sure you will be a good fit for each other. She is a pleasure
to work with and I was delighted to land my current role with a fantastic firm
through her help.
Gareth H, Wiltshire
Greg - thanks again for all your help with the job search. I
really appreciated the time you gave me during the process and how you
continually kept me updated.
I will be continuing
to recommend your help - I can honestly say you are one of the best agents
I have worked with.
Rachel D, East Anglia
Graham Jones was great at securing me a role as an IT
Support Technician. He was attentive, helpful and patient with the process. I
am very grateful for his perseverance and expertise in finding me a role that
suited my circumstances. He was assisting me throughout the whole process,
which gave me confidence and tranquillity.
Thank you for your help.
Gio G, London
Graham Jones was friendly and very talented in informing me
in what the next steps would be in recruitment, he approached me with the role
in IT I have been looking for, he was patient and understanding knowing my
working hours were 40 per week.
He would go out of his way for me, which is
the part I liked the most, he knew I wanted the job a lot and gave many tips
for the interview and pushed me to the position I'm in now.
Thanks a lot Graham.
Sam G, Cardiff
Graham Jones handled my search for a new role with a
combination of both professionalism and approach-ability. I felt he was
interested and always available to facilitate the process. He has also
maintained his contact over the ensuing months to see if I am still happy in
the new position; all in all I would say the service he provides is exemplary.
John G, London
Graham Jones was professional, thorough and detail
oriented and kept me informed throughout the recruitment and negotiation
process. He struck the right balance between persistence and patience, and in
my view managed to facilitate the best deal for both my new employer and
myself. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any prospective job seekers or
employers. He was a pleasure to work with.
Sean C, Surrey
Amelia was a pleasure to deal with and really took the time
to find out about me and what I was looking for. She always kept me updated
about roles I may be interested in and was very supportive. She is very
professional and always called when she said she would to fit around my
availability. I would not fail to recommend her and am very grateful to her for
her hard work.
Katie W, Surrey
can't rate Neil Campbell highly enough. He understood immediately what I
was looking for and was supportive in every aspect of the application process.
From regularly checking-in to see how I was getting on, to always being on hand
to deal with questions I had, I really felt Neil went above and beyond in the
support and guidance he gave.
Greg Whitaker was persistent in ensuring that I moved to law firm that
were much better suited to my ambition of becoming a skilled property lawyer
and enhance my career progression.
Peter S, East Anglia
Amelia is one of the best recruiters I have worked with. She
was very patient and understanding whenever I was not able to take or quickly
return her call. She kept me updated with any applications and promptly dealt
with any queries raised. I have no hesitation in recommending her services.
Lalita K, Kent
I found Greg
incredibly supportive during which was an anxious time for me since I hadn't changed
job for 12 years. Greg was professional but personable which made him very
approachable. I felt Greg was with me every step of the way which really helped
over times of uncertainty. I'd certainly look to Greg to place me in the future
should I wish to change jobs again! Many thanks for your help!
Emma H, East Anglia
Amelia - I am absolutely grateful for the way you dealt with my enquiry.
You were quick and efficient. I especially appreciate that manner in which
you responded promptly to all my enquiries! This certainly helped
in achieving a quick turnaround. For that (and my new job) I say thank you.
Sheila M, Surrey
morning Greg. My new role is going well. A lovely team and great working environment. I
would be more than happy to recommend QED to other people. A great service and
friendly staff. Kind
Mathew J, East Anglia
Amelia was really helpful in advising me how setting my CV in a
different way would highlight my experience to potential employers. Although I
originally applied for a role with a different firm, after taking time to
listen to my preferences, Amelia arranged an interview at an alternative firm and
I was offered the job. It was a very pleasant experience that employment agency took time
to find out more about me and found the right fit for me that resulted in me
getting the interview at the right firm and getting the job offer.
Thank you again for placing me in a role that I wanted and
Maz K, Surrey
Amelia was really helpful from initial contact and took the time
to listen to my objectives for my new role. I am pleased to be with my current
firm going on six months now. The position, firm and culture tick all of my
boxes and I believe this is owing to Amelia finding out about me and really
taking the time to consider an appropriate role. This made for a very smooth
Many thanks to Amelia.

Hi Nick - My new role has been a breath of fresh air and I am thoroughly enjoying my new "home". Thanks again for all your help in me achieving this goal. Kind regards Richard
Richard H, Manchester
so much for brokering this deal for me. I genuinely appreciate your efforts on
my behalf in negotiating a package that is agreeable. I think that this really
will be a good fit and am very excited about this new opportunity.
throughout the interview process has been great and you've always contacted me
very quickly with updates and been available whenever I have needed something

Have a lovely day!
Arlie A, Birmingham
uploaded my CV due to my job coming to an end,
I was not expecting to have anyone act on it so proactively, that is
until Greg came upon it. I have dealt with many agencies in the past who
have promised to find my ideal job and little has come of it but with Greg at
QED things were different. Having contacted me to advise that he had a
legal company who I may be interested in having my details put forward for he
was very forthcoming with the name of the firm which turned out to be a company
I had previously worked for and been made redundant. Greg made me feel
very worthwhile, that my skills were important and that there would be a
suitable job match for me. He was extremely proactive all the way, a very
nice, warm individual I found easy to talk to and who knew the legal background
and his client's needs well. I am so pleased with the way things have
turned out and the fact that I will be starting a new position at the beginning
of April which has taken a lot of pressure off me. I would definitely
recommend Greg to any people searching for their next job in the legal market
as I am a 100% satisfied individual. Thanks. Anita
Anita W, East Anglia
Matt, you have helped me to understand the
legal market in a frank but positive way, which has enabled me to focus my
objectives and search proactively. You have from the outset been approachable.
Your understanding of the legal profession in a practical way has been
reassuring and has enabled us to form a honest and open working relationship,
which I feel has benefited me and my new employer; because we all know so
much more about each other than the bare details in a cv, as is often the
case. I feel both sides are far more comfortable as a result of your
You have matched me with what I feel
will be the right firm and role for me. I have been kept up to date regularly
and would not hesitate to recommend you to any colleagues or firm.
Amanda S, West Midlands
I engaged Amelia's services upon my arrival in London from
New Zealand. I found her very engaging and genuinely interested in placing me
in a suitable role. She took the time to listen to what I want to achieve from
a work place and worked hard as my advocate in obtaining a role for me that
meets those requirements. I would recommend Amelia to anyone in a similar
position to me.
Rowan B, London
I feel very
fortunate to have crossed paths with David Roddy. I initially contacted him
about a role I had seen advertised online. When I called him,
David took the time to explain about that role but also to get to know a
bit about me and to work out what I was looking for in a role, which
immediately put me at ease. He is very personable and is quick to establish
a rapport with you - and he was always on hand if I needed to talk about
anything, without ever being pushy. In the end, I
have accepted a role which I would not have heard of other than through
David, so he has been invaluable to me!
Katie M, North East
Hi Nick, Everything is going great, loving my job and making
Hope you are well and best wishes for the New Year.
Monica T, North West
Amelia is very professional and friendly and really helped
me in securing my new position. She listened to my concerns and I felt that she
really took on board what I was looking for. I would recommend to anyone
looking to move jobs to contact her.
Mark K, Kent
Many thanks Graham, I
couldn't thank you enough! You have been very clear and approachable since I
applied and you have been very honest too. I like how you check up on progress
and follow up on your word. If I ever need another job again I will definitely
be coming back to you!
Zeinab M, West Yorkshire
I used Greg at QED
Legal, after he contacted me via LinkedIn in relation to some jobs that he
thought I might be interested in. I sent in my CV which Greg then forwarded
onto the Company, within a day Greg had sorted me an interview out, it was done
so quickly and professionally, and I was always kept in the loop. I got the job
and Greg was great in negotiating my pay and Contract - I couldn't fault him!
Overall I found QED Legal to be a fantastic recruiter, and I would not hesitate
to tell my colleagues to use them!
Ami H, East Anglia
Greg at QED Legal LLP
has been a pleasure to deal with - proactive, helpful and professional.

Paulina H, North East
I have been
very impressed with the service that I received from QED, particularly since
Kim became involved. Contacting me to follow up on the status of my job search,
following the departure of your colleague, and taking the time to find out
about the type of role which would be of most interest to me. It is as a result
of Kim’s knowledge of QED’s clients as well as Kim’s networking skills that she
successfully matched my skills with a firm that was looking for individuals,
with my background and experience, to expand their business.
Kim was so
helpful during the whole process, keeping me well informed at all times. Also
when she was unavailable her colleagues, who were appropriately informed,
stepped in providing me with a seamless service throughout.
I also really
appreciate her understanding and way she handled my request to allow me
sufficient time to arrive at my decision.
I now have an
exciting new role with a firm that I would not have known about had it not been
for Kim and QED’s involvement. Thank you so much.
I would not
hesitate to recommend QED to any one requiring these services.
Kate S, London
Graham, I just wanted to thank you for securing me the position
at my new firm. I really enjoy it and I'm so glad I'm here, hopefully there's room to
Thanks again for all your hard work.
Rebecca B, Yorkshire
Graham at QED has been great in helping me secure
employment. He has been very supportive in advising what will be required
through each interview stage and kept in communication with me when necessary
so I never felt I was dealing with my job search alone. I would definitely
recommend the services of QED to anyone looking for employment in the legal
sector, and would not hesitate to use them again myself should the need arise
in the future
Dawn P, Yorkshire
This was my first experience of dealing with a
recruitment agency and I was extremely satisfied with the results. Graham
is highly professional and it was clear from the start that he really knows the
market. He found me a suitable role within one day of our initial
conversation and both he and his colleague, Toby, kept me fully informed
throughout and responded to my questions efficiently. I would definitely
use QED Legal again and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone seeking
a legal role.
Caroline T, Yorkshire
QED helped me to find
new employment. David Roddy was assigned to look after me. He was
incredibly friendly and helpful and arranged everything for me. He even
made contact with the interviewers when I was running late to smooth things
over. He pushed for feedback and a response and I’m really grateful for
Pari S, East Midlands
was invaluable to me when I was looking for a new role - very supportive and
always available at a moment's notice. He has a unique insight into the legal
scene in Scotland, which placed me at an advantage and paved the way for
me to secure the right job at the right time. I would highly recommend Neil to
anyone looking for a new position in the legal profession.
Rhona M, Scotland
After taking a short
career break and living abroad for 18 months, I began speaking to Neil Campbell
of QED Legal Recruitment about a return to practice in Scotland recently. To
say that things moved quickly is an understatement! ... To put things in perspective,
I got back into the country on the Saturday and by the Tuesday I found myself
with a job in an exciting Edinburgh firm! Neil listened to what I was looking
for and found a good match for me and for my new employers. I would highly
recommend QED Legal Recruitment to anyone considering a move within the
profession. Very reliable with good connections- I couldn't be happier. Thank
you very much!
Mairi K, Scotland
Greg Whitaker is a true credit to QED. Greg contacted me
when a position became available one year after first being given my CV.
I have now worked with Greg twice and can honestly say he is amazing. In
2015 Greg contacted me and I went for an interview with a legal firm
Unfortunately I did not get this position but over one year later another
vacancy became available and Greg remembered me. He called me, talked to
me about the vacancy and I was lucky enough this time to secure the position.
I feel it amazing that after over a year Greg not only remembered me, but
called me to see if I was interested in being put forward. After one year
people would think "oh she will have a job I will not bother contacting
her" but not Greg on the phone immediately and the rest is history.
Greg you are true ambassador for this company and I would most certainly
recommend you to any of my friends who are looking for a role.
Debbie C, Cambridgeshire
Sophia Carr has been exceptionally supportive and professional, always
within reach and using her best endeavours to help me find and secure the right
job, very pleased with her service
Greg D, Berkshire
Abi and QED legal
have been extremely professional, friendly and fast moving throughout my
experience with them. Abi regularly kept me updated on jobs and applications
she made on my behalf and with her friendly and positive attitude she made me
feel extremely comfortable and relaxed about finding a new job. She managed to
secure me an interview in less than a day and called me before and after to
provide support. I secured a job very quickly and was only out of work for two
days in total! I would definitely recommend Abi and QED legal as a company!
Kerry J, Sussex
has assisted me recently in finding a new role and I am happy to recommend him
to other people looking for a new position in the legal industry. I have been
in touch with other recruitment agents who, despite being clear about the
position/location I was interested in, have contacted me with jobs that are not
suitable. Greg was a breath of fresh air, he listened to my requirements and
contacted me with a couple of different options and I was fortunate enough to
get offered both jobs that Greg put me forward for! He's always been
available at the end of the phone and has been great at offering impartial
advice when I needed to make a decision between the 2 firms. Thanks for your
Samantha D, Northamptonshire
Greg - Thanks for this. I'm really excited so hopefully it will all go well!

was available (Case Management Developer). He is very easy to speak to and took the time to listen to my
requirements and explain fully what he could offer. He is very easy to get in
touch with and made sure the interview process and everything that followed
(e.g. contract signing) went smoothly. Thanks for helping me get this position

Irina G, East Anglia
I can't thank David

employment as I am convinced that she would do her very best to find them a
position which suits their needs.
Avalon S, London

dealt with. He is very supportive and will guide you through every stage. He
has great personal skills and remains very professional throughout. I cannot
thank him enough for contacting me! Anyone who has crossed paths with Jason,
professionally will know how great he is at his job!
Sini P, London
Greg - Just dropping you an
e-mail to thank you with all your help with this vacancy.
Thank you for keeping in touch with me and up to date, you have been very
I would definitely recommend your agency.
Claire P, East Anglia
I can't praise Neil highly enough. He made what could have
been a stressful and nerve-wracking experience much more calm and painless than
I imagined and gave practical, honest feedback and advice as required.
Shona G, Scotland
Graham is - with a
shadow of a doubt - the most professional, efficient, and reliable recruitment
agent I have ever dealt with. He understood my requirements and found potential
roles for me that satisfied all the criteria I had set out for him. In fact, he
understood my career trajectory better than myself as he found me a role in an
area that I had not considered, but that fitted me perfectly. I would not
hesitate to recommend Graham to anyone searching for a legal role in Yorkshire
Martina W, West Yorkshire
name is Daniel Russell and I am Managing Director of Carlsons solicitors. I
cannot praise Jason highly enough for his recruitment services during my recent
search for a senior property solicitor. His patience, perseverance and
attention to detail is a rare commodity. I would have absolutely no hesitation
availing myself of Jason's services again and recommending him to
others. Well done Jason and once again a massive "thank you"!
Daniel R, London
much appreciated Jason's insights into the insurance market.
Insurance Partner - June 2016
Mark M, London
not quite sure how I first came across Jason, but I'm very glad I did.
Jason is quite excellent at picking up a brief and focusing on precisely what
his client requires. The quality of the people that Jason has introduced is
very high, and apart from that he is personable and charming to deal with. I
really can't recommend him highly enough.
Julian Blake - Practice Manager, Wiseman Lee LLP
Julian B, London
Dawn, I just want to say thank you for your efforts in finding me
a new role. You have been fantastic throughout and really had faith in me.
Always there at the end of the phone or email to offer support and guidance.
Hayley E, Manchester
I contacted QED after
seeing their name against a number of posts I was interested in. By this
point I already was in contact with various recruiters from other agencies
however I hadn’t had much luck. Neil stood out as he always made time for me -
which was what I really needed whilst trying to stay on top of my traineeship.
Especially important was his ability to listen, he didn't hassle me with things
he knew wouldn't interest me and worked hard to understand and get what I
really wanted. With his help I secured the dream position for me and I will
always be grateful for his assistance in a stressful busy time.
Ben S, Scotland
I have been incredibly happy
with the assistance you have provided Kim, you have been extremely professional
and supportive. You managed to find, what I hope will prove to be the ideal
role befitting of all my requirements. I am grateful for all your assistance in
introducing me to this firm.
Mandip R, Essex
Hi Toby, I just wanted to praise Nick, he has gone over and beyond
his role to secure me a job and is an asset to your company always keeping me
posted and up to date. I will definitely be recommending other lawyers to QED in
the future who are looking for a new job. Thank you!
Malika I, North West
As a senior English (corporate)
solicitor planning a move into the Edinburgh legal market I decided that I
needed the help of a well connected local agent. I contacted Neil after doing
some research on the Internet and his service was just what I had wanted. I
found a great opportunity which is a perfect fit for me.
Chris G, Scotland
Greg - Just want to say....thank you!! From the day I applied for a job advertised by QED you called me within 20 minutes and were
very proactive from that moment. You attentively asked me my circumstances and
worked with them and advised me. Not only did you get me a fantastic job that I
am really enjoying, you also made my move down to Great Yarmouth from Halifax
very smooth and stress free as I didn't need to worry about not having a job or
when my next pay cheque was coming! You are very friendly and lovely to
communicate with. Hopefully I will not leave this job, but I recommend you
highly to anyone now and in the future. Thank you.
Afreen M, East Anglia
Besides being a friendly voice to have a chat
to before and after interviews, the service that Matt provided was excellent
throughout the whole recruitment process. I received detailed information about
my upcoming interviews well in advance. This included information about the job
specifications, the people I would be meeting, the location of the interview,
and information about the firm generally - everything you could possibly need!
I also found Matt to be very reachable and personable, and I was comfortable
asking any questions I had. I felt confident and prepared going into my
interviews and that is in large part due to the assistance provided by Matt.
The job I was put forward for matched my experience well and I was very happy
to accept the employment offer I received.
Caitlin E, West Midlands
Jason was very detail oriented and helped me in
making a great choice.
Gauri S, London
I approached Neil at QED regarding an advertised
vacancy, as I was looking to move away from my then-current role. The service
from Neil was excellent. He moved matters on with a minimum of fuss, always
responded to queries promptly and efficiently, and ultimately played a key part
in helping me to secure the advertised role.
Matt has been such a fantastic help to me in securing my
role. He has a brilliant personality, very friendly yet professional. He
seemed to genuinely care about my interests and about getting me this
He was informative from the outset and provided with me with
lots of beneficial information regarding the role. He also sent me lots of
interview tips and called me the day before my interview to go through possible
interview questions and advice. I cannot explain how valuable his help was to
me! I was very nervous prior to my interview and he completely boosted my
confidence by providing me with such detailed advice and tips.
Matt has done a fantastic job in negotiating a
brilliant salary which was way more than I expected I would get. He was very
easy to talk to throughout the whole process and I am very grateful for all his
help. He is an asset to QED Legal
Lauren S, West Midlands
is a fantastic professional who vowed 2 years ago when we first connected that
she will place me in a firm and lo and behold she has done just that. We
connected in 2014 when I was looking to move on from my previous firm and it
did not work out at the time, however 2 years later a fantastic opportunity
came up that I could not resist and Kim was at the forefront of making this
happen. She is someone who is extremely professional, courteous will always
give you the time of day and was a fantastic conduit between me and my
prospective new employers. She did a great job and continues to do a great job
and cannot recommend her enough to others.
Umar K, Essex
Extremely happy with the quick and supportive guidance
and service received from Graham at QED legal, would definitely recommend them
to friends and family!
Ayesha I, West Yorkshire
Amelia was a very helpful and efficient consultant who assisted
me extremely well every day. Her communication responses were very swift and
detailed to help me with anything I had questions for. Amelia found me and within a week and a half I had a new job. I cannot thank her more! Very
well recommended. She will do the best she can to the best of her
Lauren B, London
Hi Nick, It is wonderful news about my new job! I can't believe it's happened so
quickly. The interview really clarified that the job is exactly what I'm
looking for. I feel very fortunate. I really appreciate your hard work in setting everything up.
It's a weight off my shoulders knowing I have a great firm to go to in
September. Many thanks
Abbie P, Shropshire
have worked with Jason on a number of assignments over the last couple of years
and I have always been impressed with his level of service and professionalism.
When looking for a recruiter I believe it is vital that they not only
understand your business but also the type of person you are looking for to
fill a particular role within your organisation.
Jason always listens, takes on board what I'm looking for and advises
me as to whether my request is realistic. He will ask questions if clarity is
required and confirm his understanding before going to market. He will only
suggest candidates that meet the brief, saving me significant amounts of time.
His specialist knowledge of the legal employment market is key and another
reason why I am happy to recommend him
Charles P, London
Amelia is amazing! She recommended me for a job and fought my corner into getting me a position in a Law Firm. She was always available whenever I needed her. Be it via Linkedin, Phone, Email or Text. If I am ever unemployed again or looking for a new adventure I know exactly who to turn to.

As the managing partner of a City law firm I find Jason extremely
professional to deal with. He matches candidates to our exact requirements and
David D, London
Greg was professional, attentive and proactive
in helping me find the right role. His expertise in the legal job market in
East Anglia was invaluable and I’m very grateful for all his help. He was a
pleasure to deal with.
Bronwyn T, East Anglia
Greg was extremely helpful with the whole job search
process. He was only a phone call away and helped to negotiate a great
offer within a Law firm that I was set on working for. He phoned after the
interview to ask how it went and phoned the firm to follow up. I am
very grateful that I found QED Legal. Thank you.
Victoria B, Oxfordshire
Neil, thank you for all your
help finding me a new position. You were proactive, encouraging and
kept me informed me of positions that might be suitable for
me. You also provided me with guidance on the roles coming up, answered
any questions I had and were always available. Thanks for
all your help!

Jason - You are a star! Once again many thanks for all
your efforts - much appreciated!
Jean C, London
Sophia found me a job so quickly that I only had
a short time to get to know her! From the start she was efficient,
encouraging and always available. She had a feeling for the role that I
was seeking, and found a perfect match within weeks. She negotiated a great
package for me in a great firm. I could not have done it without
her. Thank you Sophia!
Alexandra S, Wiltshire
Jemma was really kind and genuinely cared about whether I got the job. It was
really down to her that I got called for the job and put my legal career firmly on track!

Thanks Nick. Yes. I am settling in well. Everything is very positive here and I have brought about £20,000 worth of
work with me so I hope this will make a difference! Everyone here is very friendly and
helpful. Thanks again for your help
Sue B, Cumbria
I was referred to QED by a previous colleague who had been found
her position through them. I was passed to the care of David who covered the north East. I had tried for sometime to secure a position. I was trying to
relocate from the South East and had not been able to even secure an interview
in the North east. Too qualified for junior positions and without a following
or local connections I was stranded in professional limbo. David was able to use local contacts and was able to secure me an
opportunity to meet with an excellent firm. He negotiated a position. I found David to be proactive and positive.
Trevor G, North East

for calling me last night to let me know about the job offer at my new firm! It's been a pleasure for me working
with you and I'm truly grateful.Thank you very much for all your help and best regards, Louise

a rapidly expanding law firm with multiple disciplines demonstrating
outstanding growth we need to know that we can rely upon the recruitment
consultants we work with to ensure that we find the right candidates.
Both Abi and Garry have always been excellent to deal with, are open with us
and their candidates so no one ever gets the wrong impression.
Negotiation with them is painless and allows us all to make quick decisions
that are relayed to their candidates and us so matter are never protracted.
Like ourselves they are down to earth and accessible as a firm and
Paul Sams- Partner Eric Robinson Solicitors, Hampshire
Abi has been greatly
supportive, professional and efficient in processing my
application, handling my interviews in a smooth fashion and securing my new
job. On all levels she has retained a great amount of contact and care and it
has been a delight to have her represent me. I highly recommend her as an agent
and the rest of the professional team at QED Legal.
Daniel P, West Sussex
was lucky enough to have Jason assist me with a recent placement. Having
considered a few positions I was still looking for the right opportunity when
Jason contacted me. He immediately transformed my search adding real momentum.
Jason explained that he would contact prominent firms in my field, whether they
were advertising or not and discuss whether there were any opportunities for me
within those organisations.
Very quickly he came back to me with some options that I would never have found
by myself and frankly would not have been found by any other consultants, because
they were created by Jason.
Ultimately one of these options became a fantastic move for me. Jason stayed in
constant contact throughout the whole process and his positive attitude and
impeccable professionalism were a delight to deal with.
I can say with absolute certainty that my new firm and I would never have found
each other without Jason's remarkable assistance. I recommend him
unreservedly. Thank you Jason.
Carl N, London
found Jemma most efficient and tenacious in her search for a new position for
me. Within a week she had secured 4 interviews and I am now really
looking forward to starting a new position. Unlike some agencies, Jemma
listened to my requirements and met the brief all the way. Thanks Jemma -
you were brilliant!
Catherine W, East Midlands
Very happy with Greg
and the team at QED, the process was quick, easy and I was supported the whole
way through. Would definitely recommend QED to a friend.
Georgie S, East Anglia
I started looking for
a new position recently and was contacted by Abi at QED recruitment. I
found Abi a pleasure to deal with, she was sympathetic to my needs and very
quickly (within a couple of days) found me a suitable position for which I was
successful. Abi made the whole (potentially stressful) process of finding
a new job easy, straightforward and painless. Unlike some recruitment
consultants Abi was not pushy, she understood my requirements and I would
Anne D, Sussex
Jemma helped my land my first professional job in 2013 and I
can safely say she is the best at what she does! Moving on 3 years and Jemma has continued to help me grow
professionally and always landed me in roles that have been beneficial to me. She listens and also advises and always has time for you,
even when you don't reply to her (sorry Jem!). Thank you for being my first point of call and always having
time for me. I cannot recommend you enough! Thank You
Raj P, West Midlands
I couldn't have been more
pleased with the professional and friendly service from Kim. She took the time
in length to talk about the position, she answered any questions I had and
secured an interview quickly, which resulted in a job offer I accepted.
Throughout the entire process she kept me updated and in the loop. I've now
been in my role nearly 7 months and it couldn't have been a better fit, all
down to Kim putting me forward for a role that was exactly what I was looking
for. I couldn't thank her enough. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone,
Stephanie T, Essex
Neil, thank you for all your help in securing my new role in
Edinburgh. I found you very personable and that you gave me genuine
insight and advice in relation to the firm that I have secured a job
with. Your commitment and effort were a great help though out the
stressful job-hunting process. I would have no hesitation recommending
your services to a friend.
Katharine M, Scotland
Greg, I just wanted to say that I have been very pleased with your
help and advice in obtaining my new post. You have kept me informed
throughout and updated me without me having to ask for any information. Contact
with you was very easy and you replied promptly by email, voicemail and
messages. Your support throughout has been much appreciated.
Hilary K, Cambridgeshire
Neil, I just wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work.
I am now about to commence an amazing role which was in no small way
contributed to by your patience, perseverance and insight. Your advice in the
initial stages and at interview stage was invaluable. I would have no
hesitation in recommending you to other candidates and in fact have already
done so. Thanks again!
Thank you QED for finding me my new
position. I received fantastic service
and support from Graham and Jemma, they kept me updated every step of the way.
Would highly recommend QED to anyone who is looking to secure a new role.
Kay B, West Yorkshire
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Graham at QED
Legal for his help and support in finding me a suitable full-time position in a
legal practice in such a short period of time. I found Graham attentive, efficient and professional. I am very happy to recommend the service offered by QED
Legal. All the best for the future.
Marlene F, West Yorkshire
Jemma was brilliant. Where other agents would not have even tried, she
persevered in getting me an interview at my 'ideal' firm. I can only suspect
that her negotiating skills are excellent.
Jemma was very professional throughout the process and kept me informed
regularly. I have not had to 'chase' her once. I would say that Jemma's
communication skills are great.
I also found Jemma quite assertive and I know that she would not have placed me
in this role if she thought I was not fully suited to it. She would voice her
opinion clearly in any case.
I don't think I would have secured this role without Jemma and I will
certainly refer her to any of my friends if they were to seek a new role.
Sophia M, West Midlands
From start to finish Abi at QED Legal was an amazing
help, she was on the ball and found the right jobs to suit what I wanted. Abi
found me a job that I was successful in obtaining within 3 days and I would
recommend her to anyone I know looking for law work.
Christopher W, Sussex
would thoroughly recommend Greg to anyone searching for a new role. I was quite
overwhelmed by the recruitment process but Greg really listened to my
requirements and guided me through the process easily. Greg was available and
supportive, unlike other agents I engaged with, and I felt that he really had
my best interests at heart. Greg helped me to secure a great NQ role and I
would not hesitate in using him again if I ever choose to change roles in the
Amy M, Oxfordshire
have found Jemma not only to be approachable but also professional. She
listened to what my requirements were and was honest on whether they would be
achievable or not. Jemma was very quick in finding me positions that met my
criteria and helped me during the interview stages also. I would happily use
Jemma's services again.
Rav K, West Midlands
Graham, thank you for your help and assistance in getting me my job, negotiating a
decent salary and being easy to contact. It was a pleasure working with you and
I wish you and your business all the best.
Camilla A, West Yorkshire
I can't thank Kim enough for
all the hard work she put into finding me a job.
She was very efficient and friendly, within a
week of sending my cv I already had a date for a job interview. During this process Kim was very supportive and
answered any questions I had. I recommend Kim to anyone looking for a new job.
This is definitely the best job agency I've been with and will use them again
in the future if needed!
Thank you Kim!

great so thank you for helping me secure a role so efficiently and speedily.
Munisha H, West Midlands
my skills and background perfectly with a very good job opportunity. She
provided me with extremely constructive and honest advice and gave me a
brilliant insight into the personality of the company that I was interested in
joining. This has turned out to be an excellent job within a very supportive
firm with lots of opportunities for future progression. Kim has excellent
people skills, is very trustworthy, and has been helpful and informative
throughout the process. She has also stayed in touch with me during my
employment to check on how things were going and has shown a genuine interest
in whether the move has worked out for both myself and my employer. I
have no hesitation in recommending Kim to candidates and employers and believe
they will be extremely pleased by her efforts.
Dan H, Hertfordshire
Thank you so much Dawn, you too have been an excellent recruitment
consultant to work with, the only one I have to say, in Manchester, who has
even come close to producing what I've been looking for - in fact you've found
exactly what I was looking for. I'd say I'd keep in touch, but from what
I've heard, know and seen of my new firm, I don't think I'll be wanting to move
any time soon - they are the best in the city when it comes to law firms and I
am going to be working for one of their senior partners.
N. M., North West
Jason, once again thank you so much for all your
help. The prospect of finding a job in London when I had no idea of the
London market was pretty daunting but you made me feel much more positive and
hopeful. I'm delighted to have secured a job so quickly and am really
excited for my big move.
Carol C, London
I have found working with Nick a complete delight, he was very
good at finding the suitable position and to making all the contacts to get me
where I need to be. Communications were very pleasant and I would definitely
recommend his services when looking for the ideal role.
Millie H, North West
After finding the job advert on QED Legal's website, I
contacted Greg who really helped me understand not only the role I was
interested in but the culture and philosophy of the firm too, which is was so
important to me. Greg was very efficient and approachable throughout the whole
recruitment and interview procedure, not only keeping In touch during this
process but also after I had settled in the firm. Thank you QED Legal for the
perfect job match!
Leanne C, East Anglia
Kim was very efficient, friendly and supportive
throughout the process of my job search. I knew that Kim had my best interests
in mind whilst helping me and I have never experienced the same with any other
agency previously. I could contact Kim out of the normal office hours which, when
trying to seek alternative employment whilst still working is very helpful.
Overall, Kim made this whole experience less stressful and more exciting,
especially because I was also moving house at the same time! I would recommend
Kim to anybody who is looking for alternative employment within the legal
Charlotte A, Essex
Graham at QED Legal was amazing, so professional and
supportive, with the bonus of a new job which I enjoy immensely. I’d recommend
QED to any firm or individual.
Michelle J, West Yorkshire
I cannot thank Graham enough for his hard work and
diligence in putting forward my cv and arranging interviews so quickly. He was
extremely helpful in providing support and guidance in preparing for interviews
and was very prompt in returning calls and emails and obtaining updates as to
how the interviews went. Graham certainly took the stress out of job hunting
and that I cannot thank him enough.
Matthew J, West Yorkshire
Hi Nick, I'm really pleased they made an offer, as I got a good vibe
from the place whilst there. I received an offer letter through on Friday by email.
They're very much on top of things! Thank you so much for all your help and with the help of
securing a position for me. I will certainly recommend you.
Rakhi C, North West
Jason is by far the best agent I have ever worked with. He
was hands on from the very beginning. He showed a keen interest as to the type
of person I was and what I was looking for immediately from our first telephone
conversation, it was then that I knew Jason cared about getting me exactly the
job I wanted and that was right for me.
Jason is always available for a pep talk and post interview
meltdown! He will go that extra mile to sell you as a candidate so you know
that everything is well looked after! Another strong point of Jason's is that
he kept me very well informed. Going for your dream job is stressful every step
of the way, and you are on the edge on your seat whilst waiting for an answer.
Jason kept me informed at regular intervals managing my expectations fully.
Anita R, London
I worked with Graham
Rawlinson and QED legal while I was looking to secure a move away from London
to the North of England. He was always informative about the options available and had an excellent depth of knowledge about the firms who
approached me. He also gave sound advice and provided a valuable perspective
when I came to make decisions. I was comfortable leaving matters in Graham's hands
and he was effective in both identifying options for me and in negotiating the final package. I would recommend Graham and QED to anyone looking to move in
the legal sector.
Matthew F, Yorkshire
is one of the best recruiters I've come across in the market- very
reassuring, readily available and extremely proactive. He put a lot of time and
effort into speaking with me, researching potential roles and as a result
placed me into a great firm within a matter of weeks. I have already
recommended and will continue to recommend Jason- a truly fantastic recruiter
and an absolute pleasure to work with.
Sej L, London
Within 2 weeks of me
being told that I did not have a position at the firm I was in upon finishing
my training contract, Abi had negotiated and secured me a position in a local
firm and in the department I wanted. I cannot express how quick, effective and
professional the staff from QED were. Abi supported, advised and encouraged me
through a very difficult time and I firmly believe that thanks to Abi, I only
had to wait weeks and not months to find a position suitable for me. Many
thanks Abi, you were dedicated and amazing. I recommend people to use QED first
above all other recruitment agencies.
Kieron L, Sussex
With QED's swift and discrete service, I have found
the perfect role to take my career forwards. They took the time to understand

your help Jemma.

the outset, Jason made me feel at ease and was not at all pushy, unlike other

updates without delay.
Jason made the whole experience a lot less stressful and I would highly
recommend him to others.

Tom H, Lincolnshire
dealt with Graham at QED Legal and he was very professional and easy to deal
with. The main thing that impressed me about Graham was that he actually
listened to what role I was looking for and actively went out there to find me
a role rather than try and push other roles on to me that would have made
Graham's job easier for himself. Graham would be my first port of call if I
were to start looking for another job
Lee H, West Yorkshire
Hi Graham, Many apologies for the delayed response. I confirm
that I am now well settled in at my new firm. Thank you very much for your help and assistance in
placing me in contact with this practice. I am very grateful for
your professional attitude and attention to detail. It was very
reassuring to have someone working on my behalf who was constantly looking
after my interests and did what he stated he would do at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
Ian F, West Yorkshire
I had the fantastic experience of working with Michael.
He will always make time to engage clearly with you and get back to you
extremely quickly with any updates. His assistance helped me find a new
opportunity very quickly. I highly recommend Michael’s services
Neil M, London
Hi Graham just a
quick email to thank you for your help getting me a job, you were efficient,
helpful and cannot believe you got me a job in less than 5 days! I haven't
heard from the firm to confirm start date as yet, but I hope to hear from them tomorrow. Many thanks
Charlotte B, West Yorkshire
from my personal experience, Jason's approach to recruitment is as
unique as the results he achieves for his clients.
Jason does not passively match candidates to jobs as they pop
up, as is the industry standard. Rather, he reviews and evaluates professional
profiles in order to identify exemplary individuals that are talented, driven
and willing to proactively develop their legal careers. He then goes out to
market and actively markets these individuals to top tier firms, leveraging
long-standing connections and excellent relationships with senior partners.
His relationships are such that he is aware of capacity requirements within
firms, and the level of fee-earner required before the firms advertise a
vacancy. As such, the process is not only personalised but highly efficient. In
my case, this resulted in an interview within four hours of my first contact
with Jason, and an offer within three days. Jason did not rush me to accept
terms and was supportive of the subsequent period of negotiation regarding
terms. The end result was, on all counts, a fantastic position that suits my
skills, career goals, and market value.
Jason is a credit to his clients and to his profession. More should follow his

thank you to Abi at QED Legal for helping me find a job within a matter of
minutes of putting my CV on line and then within a matter of days secure a

fantastic and know exactly what job was right for me and most importantly, with
the right company. Always kept me updated of the position. I can't praise Abi
enough and would highly recommend her to any one who was looking for a job in
legal work. Thank you. December 2015
Jackie L, Hampshire
Kim, I would like to thank you deeply for the service you have
provided. You have proven to be a cut above the rest and I am really
looking forward to joining my new firm. Thank you once again.
Mike S, Hertfordshire
cannot recommend Jason highly enough. Within six working days of my initial
conversation with him, he had arranged two interviews, and had followed up with
them so quickly that I had two offers. He was extremely approachable and
supportive in my decision making process and made the entire procedure
extremely easy. He is by far the most effective recruitment agent I have come
Natalie S, London
can recommend Graham (Rawlinson); he has been very
approachable yet professional throughout the whole process. He has matched
me very well with my new employer'.
was great, from day one I felt as though he was searching for
suitable jobs for me and going out of his way to find a result. I
have found some recruitment agencies don't want to make the effort if a certain
role is turned down, however I didn't get this impression from
Jonathon; he was very proactive in his approach. He was interested in
the process of my application and interviews and our discussion on the morning
of the interview really helped my nerves.
the extra mile for me and I really appreciate it. I'm looking forward to
starting afresh. Thank
you again, I will keep in touch and let you know how it goes.
Amy J, West Midlands
I cannot fault all the work that Jemma at QED Legal put
into helping me find my new role. Jemma worked tirelessly to assist me in every
way and was never too busy to take my calls. What a fantastic company QED Legal
I really cannot thank you enough for everything you have
done for me Jemma.
Glen R, South Yorkshire
Jemma, You have been a pleasure to work with. You have been honest and always returned my calls and been
easy to get hold of. I thank you very much indeed for helping me secure my new
Sue C, Derbyshire
This was the first time looking for a new role as
I have been with my current firm since starting training. I told Kim what
I wanted and she agreed with me what kind of role I should be looking
for...and then found it! Kim has been efficient, but
also empathetic towards the stress and feeling of guilt which come
when leaving a firm you feel so loyal towards. I couldn't
have done this without her and whatever success I achieve in my new
position - she's responsible for that!
Ella J, Buckinghamshire
Thank you Abi for making the finding a job process easy
and for helping me at every step. Unlike most recruiters you were not pushy but
you were supportive and gave me the guidance I needed and was surprised how
fast the process was with your help from the interview stage to handing my
notice in my current job and I look forward to starting my new job!
Alison M, Sussex
I was entirely impressed and happy with the level of service provided by
Jonathon. He was a pleasure to liaise with and always maintained a friendly and
professional approach. He was able to find me a new suitable position within
two weeks of getting in touch. Thanks again for all of your help.
Sidrah W, West Midlands
was a pleasure working with Michael. He is extremely thorough with the work
that he does and ensures that he gets you the best opportunity that is
available. His level of communication was refreshing as he always kept me
reasonably updated. I would highly recommend his services to anyone else
looking for new opportunities.
Tola O, London
Thanks for your kind words Greg. No one was more surprised
than I was when he offered me there and then. Thanks for your help in this and I will obviously recommend your
services in future
Debbie C, East Anglia
Kim is an excellent recruiter, taking the time
to know me and what I was looking for, meaning that within a week of making
contact she was able to set up several interviews which resulted in a job

PB, North West

professional service. Thank you again

you've been great!
Ingrid T, South Yorkshire
Thank you Greg for all your help with finding me a new job.
I have never used an agency before and from start to finish I was thoroughly
impressed with how helpful you were. Should I need to change firms again
(hopefully not) then I will certainly be in contact!
Ayla M, Oxfordshire
I just want to say thank you to Kim for all her help in
helping me find my new job. She made it so easy for me to contact her outside
of my working hours and to discuss any questions or advice that I needed. She
was very helpful and went that extra mile. I have recommended other people to
Lee-Ann W, Essex
Thank you very much Kim for helping me secure a role with a
firm that ticks all the boxes. The service you gave was simply excellent and professional.
You really were helpful and patient and supportive throughout and as a result I
have a job that will set me on an even better career path.
Sonia P, Essex
I was very impressed with the service I received from
Christina. She called me about a job I may be interested in, I had
the interview a few days later and was then offered the
role. She answered all my queries, responded to me quickly and was
very pleasant to deal with.
Verity H, Kent
I would definitely
recommend Neil Campbell at QED Legal. Neil assisted me to secure a new role in
a few short weeks. He is pro-active and an excellent communicator, with
relevant knowledge of the legal sector in Scotland. He was always ready to listen
and provided direct, clear advice. Neil makes the whole process
straightforward. I cannot praise him highly enough.
Marie H, Scotland
I first spoke with Kim when I had just started to search
for a new role. Kim made the whole process easy and stress free. Quite
honestly, I didn’t really have to do much, Kim listened to what I wanted and
where I wanted to be in five years’ time and found the perfect role for me! She
not only did that but she also guided me through the whole process and gave me
that final push that I needed to “go for it”! Kim is great at what she does and
I will remain ever grateful for the position she has helped find for me!!
Ali C, Essex
Just wanted to say a
BIG thank you to Abi at QED Legal for helping me secure a position with an
established law firm. Having recently relocated and left my previous job, Abi
was fantastic and very understanding in helping me find the right position and
most importantly, with the right company. Nothing was too much trouble and even
dealt with me out of office hours. I can't praise Abi enough and would highly
Kara H, Hampshire

me in the loop which was very reassuring. Looking for a new job was
daunting but she made it less so by keeping me updated throughout.
I cannot thank Jemma enough for her commitment to ensure I secured my
Kelly H, Yorkshire
Neil - The exceptionally quick turnaround from introductory
phone call to an offer of employment has been outstanding. Neil was always at
the other end of the phone or email to support and provide guidance. QED is
certainly the recruitment firm of choice if you are in the legal market
Tom G, Scotland
Morning Jonathon. I just wanted to say thank you for locating a suitable role
for me. You have been very supportive and have listened to
what I wanted moving forward. You have always texted me to see if it is
convenient to talk which was important to me as I didn't want my present
employers to have any inkling as to what was going on.
Thank you once again for being very professional, pro-active
and finding this post for me. I will certainly be back in touch with you
should I need any help in the future with finding a new role.
Sue J, West Midlands
Christina helped me secure my current role. From
the outset she was very professional, friendly, reliable and kept me
informed throughout the process. I highly recommend Christina
and QED Legal to candidates and clients alike.

Greg is a true professional - he actually
listens to what people say and their particular requirements. I could not
recommend QED Legal enough.
Belinda H, Oxfordshire
Just a line to thank you for
all your help in securing the position I now find myself in.
The whole process was unique
and I do not think it will happen again but I am so very grateful that you put me in touch with this firm.
It was only your knowledge
and expertise that convinced me to “Go for it” and I am so glad I did.
Thanks again Kim

Kim, you were absolutely great, always keeping me in the loop.

I wanted to take this
opportunity to thank you for your help and support in assisting me to

Gordon J, Kent
Jason, your assistance has been invaluable from start to finish
and it was refreshing to come across an agent who understood my requirements
and who put forward good opportunities providing relevant support for the
interview process, where necessary. You have been exceptional in dealing with
the law firm and assisting to resolve all issues diligently and with speed
so as to ensure that the position was secured and things concluded promptly
particularly given that I had other opportunities in the pipeline. Thank you
again for all your help.
Meta P, London
Really pleased with the professional service from Kim, she
took the time to talk at length about the type of a role I was looking for, she
was attentive and also provided a personal touch - she gave good advice and
secured an interview quickly which resulted in a job offer I accepted.
Prior to starting my new role, Kim kept in contact to check all was ok prior to
my start - I hope my job goes from strength to strength and I will not
need Kim's services but I would not hesitate to recommend her and her colleagues
- thank you again Kim
Helen W, Essex
Jason was incredibly helpful throughout the process.
His recommendations for my CV were spot on and he managed to secure me an
interview within a few days of me contacting me.
I would definitely recommend Jason to any of my colleagues who are looking
to move jobs.
Haroop A, London
The service provided by Neil was focused, efficient and achieved
my desired goal. The guidance and advice given by Neil was straight forward and
accurate. No hidden agenda and Neil is highly knowledgeable in his field of
expertise. Neil is very professional and I gave no hesitation in recommending
Savita S, Scotland
Jason is a kind and conscientious individual who really took
time to understand my needs and evaluate the best career move for me. I feel
that he never gave up on me and gave me the confidence I needed to attend
interviews and really taught me how to emphasise my selling points but also
deal head on with any possible negatives that the interviewers may pick up. I
really appreciate all his hard work and persistence in finding the right role
Maz P, London
I have managed to secure a job at Legal 500 firm within a
couple of weeks of my initial conversation with Jason. Throughout my job search
and right through to my job offer, Jason has been incredibly helpful and
professional. He has been keeping me informed and has been such great
assistance. Prior to my interview, Jason called me to go over the main points
about the firm and the interview itself, which helped me with my interview
preparation. I would definitely recommend Jason to others.
Sommia S, London
I was delighted by the highly professional and attentive
service provided by Neil. Thanks to his hard work, I secured a new role faster
than I ever imagined would be possible. I can't thank him enough. Thanks again for your help.
Ellis W, Scotland
Thank you very much to Graham for helping me to secure my
new role. I was very pleased with the service, Graham kept me informed
throughout the process and his words of advice before and after my interview
were a great help. I would definitely recommend QED legal to anyone looking for
their next career move.
Emma S, West Yorkshire
Jason was truly professional and I had every faith he would
secure the right role for me.
He gave me really useful information prior to interviews and lots of feedback
afterwards and this really gave me the confidence I needed. Thank you for all
your efforts in helping me make the correct career move.
Mahza P, London
Hi Nick, Got the offer letter all through and notice handed in! The documents are in the post
so will sign and sent back.
Thanks for your help securing my new role!
Katrine O, North West
Greg was a great in helping me secure this role and a
pleasure to work with. What initially was me reaching out to QED for any
prospective roles, resulted in him pushing to tailor a role that matched what I
needed and also benefited my new employer. Communication was
brilliant at all times in the day – Would definitely recommend to anybody
wanting to develop their career by finding a new role.
Rayyan M, East Midlands
I found Kim so easy to work with. Communications were
very good and she kept me updated throughout. With her proactive and
professional approach, she helped me to secure a new position within a matter
of weeks, far surpassing my expectations. I am very satisfied with the
experience of using QED and would highly recommend Kim.
Ian G, Northern Home Counties
Greg, I would like to thank you for all of your efforts
during my job search. I was rather particular in what my next role would offer
to me and I am pleased that you were able to deliver that to me. I was kept up
to date every step of the way and communication via email was excellent for me
as I am unable to accept personal calls easily during work time. I look forward
to starting my new role
Lindsey C, Northamptonshire
I was very pleased with the professional and
personal service I received from Graham Rawlinson @ QED. What sets him apart
from other legal recruitment agencies I have dealt with, is that he took the
time to understand my requirements and found me the most suitable role. The
communication and advice I received was excellent, and I was kept well informed
throughout the process, from submitting my CV through to starting my new role.
Thank you Graham
Clair B, West Yorkshire
Thank you so much Kim for putting me forward for my
new job. You were very friendly and helpful. I can’t wait to start.
Rosalind D , Essex
I just wanted to
contact you to say how fantastic Kim was throughout my job search. She really
made the effort to listen to what was important to me in a job and was so very
supportive and encouraging throughout the whole process. I couldn't have asked
for more and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Thank you Kim, you

takes the time to understand and assess an individual's skills and
qualities and in that way he is able to advance that individual's
aspirations in a much more constructive and focused way. He does not waste
time, he is open with you and he gets results.
Richard A, London (City)
Nick, I have started in my new role now as I was released early from my last role. I have settled in really well. Again thanks for all your help!
Natalie C, North West
I would just like to say that I have been very pleased with the way that you
have handled my quest for a local residential conveyancing vacancy.
You have always been very professional, identified my requirements, found
a suitable vacancy and kept me informed throughout the application and
interviewing process. Thank you very much for all your help
Michael T, East Anglia
Thank you to Kim for all her hard work and help
with my job search. Kim was incredibly helpful and knew the legal
industry and firms I interviewed with inside-out. It was a pleasure
working with Kim; she is efficient and kept me updated throughout my search,
which, thanks to Kim, ended up being a lot quicker than I had first believed it
would be! Kim successfully lined up a number of interviews for me
within a matter of days with some great firms and I cannot thank her enough. I
would recommend QED to anyone searching for a placement in the legal industry.
Lauren P, Essex
I can honestly say that in comparison with the
other agencies I had registered with, I found that Kim was committed to finding
a job for me. I was extremely happy with the way in which Kim went that extra
mile to find me a job. I always found Kim pleasant and re-assuring every
time we spoke on the telephone, and I wish her well for the future’
Helen H, London (City)
These guys do their homework, know the employers and the market.
They will go through any queries you have including preparation for the
interview. Toby and Nick have been absolutely fantastic - thank you.
Anita G, Cheshire
I would just like to
say how efficient and helpful Kim has been in helping me find a job.
Nothing has been too much trouble for her and I felt she was working for both
sides of the equation.
I would truly recommend her to anybody who requires a job in the legal
Fay O, Essex
Thank you and Jem for all your help to assist me with
finding a new role.
You have both been great and provided a good service to
help make it easier.
Hamid J, West Yorkshire
I would without any hesitation at all recommend Kim Fitt to my
family, friends and colleagues looking for a change in jobs.
From the first
time Kim called me she was an absolute star. She was polite courteous and
filled me with encouragement. From the word go she was proactive in finding me
a position that would fit like a glove. She seemed to have a sixth sense of
what firm would suit me and she was of course right. She kept me informed at
every stage and kept my stress levels to an absolute minimum. Changing jobs is
stressful time, and I can honestly say with Kim at my right hand it was easy
and stress free.
I cannot thank
you enough Kim for all your efforts.”
Tracey W, Essex
I would like to thank Neil Campbell at QED
Legal for his support and guidance in helping me secure a suitable NQ Solicitor
position. Since registering with the agency, I have been extremely impressed
with their level of professionalism and expertise. Neil was quick to identify
specific roles based on my abilities and experience. He was also able to
utilise his industry knowledge and contacts in finding a perfect match. Highly
Osman K, Scotland
I would definitely recommend Jonathan at QED to my
friends and family. From the moment I applied online for a job I received
nothing but encouragement and support, Jonathon set a very good impression of
me to my employer and arranged an interview almost instantly. Jonathon is very
professional and very friendly and kept me informed every step of the way.
Thank you Jonathon.
Sahika K, West Midlands
Jason has been an
amazing help in my search for an NQ position in a niche area of practice. He
was extremely proactive in approaching firms and helped to find me a role that
was a brilliant match for me and my plans for the future. I always found him to
be very personable, genuinely interested in my job hunt and quick to
return calls and emails. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a
reputable recruiter with a can do attitude.
Emma B, London (City)
I am very pleased with the level of service provided by QED especially by Graham Rawlinson who did a brilliant job with finding me the type of employment I was looking for in a very short time. I was kept informed about the progress on a day to day basis. Thanks to Graham I am looking forward to a new job and a fresh start! Very highly recommended.
Alison S, Yorkshire
I would highly recommend Abi at QED. She has been nothing but professional and has provided me with exceptional service. She gave me a lot of encouragement in going for my job interview and believed in me. Always kept me updated during the process.
Tracey P, Sussex
I would highly recommend Jonathon Yates from QED Legal for all the exceptional service and support that he has provided me from the very beginning of my job hunting. He has always been extremely supportive and encouraging in the process of finding the best place for me to work and has successfully managed to do so within a matter of weeks. Jonathon would also go the extra mile in helping me to mentally prepare for the interviews and always approached every matter with a good demeanour as well as making a good impression on my behalf to the employers too. The service provided was always prompt, professional, and very friendly. I would once again like to thank Jonathan and the team of QED Legal for all their support who definitely provide a service above par compared to many other agencies.
Sahida K, West Midlands
I am very pleased with the results I have gained and this is all due to the hard work and persistent shown by Christina at QED Legal. I think Christina was professional, kept me informed with all updates and understanding of the type of role I was seeking. I cannot thank you enough and I am very excited to embark my new journey in my new role. I would 100% recommend QED Legal to anyone seeking a position within the legal industry, they know exactly how to help and achieve results desired.
Satinder J, London
Dear Abi I would like to thank you for your exceptional service and skill in finding me a new position. From start to finish you demonstrated a distinct professionalism; you were friendly, approachable and made things easy. You went out and found the right role for me rather than waiting for it to come to you. I would not hesitate to use your services again should the need arise and I will recommend you. Thank you again for your help, support and assistance and to a job well done!
Wendy C, Sussex
Greg - I am grateful to you and Jemma for your support and really looking forward to this new opportunity. It is strange to think that I only sent my CV off on a spur of the moment decision as the advert really appealed to me I handed in my notice (three calendar months) yesterday and have accepted the new position and just received the contract. I was really impressed by your professionalism and desire to help. You really listened to what I had to say in terms of what I was looking for in a new role. With many thanks again, Belinda
Belinda H, Oxfordshire
I have received an extremely professional yet friendly service from Abi. She has been great to work with and I have already recommended her to friends who are looking to move jobs within the legal profession. Thank you also for your kind and caring approach.
Trisha H, Sussex
I would highly recommend Jonathon at QED Legal if you are looking for your next move in your legal career. Most agencies just put you forward for jobs which are often not what you are looking for. Jonathan listened to what I was looking for in my next move and worked with me to secure the role that was right for me. I felt supported all they way through the process.
Aman B, West Midlands
Thank you Kim for your diligence and application in obtaining my new position as a Senior Associate
Lee H, Essex
After being let down by other recruitment firms, I was extremely happy to have dealt with QED and in particular Graham Rawlinson. I was impressed at the level of professionalism and he made me feel extremely in the loop about every part of the processes, from submitting my CV to the interview and ultimately the job offer. He maintained a good level of contact throughout and I can't fault his services. Extreme pleasure to have dealt with and I would recommend him to anyone.
Elysee H, Yorkshire
Jonathon is truly a great credit to the company and will go far in his career. He is a very friendly individual and is extremely efficient. Jonathon managed to place me in a fantastic role in less than a week of first contacting the company. I was kept up to date via text, phone and email at all stages and would definitely recommend Jonathon and QED Legal for your recruitment purposes
Beth P, West Midlands
I am very pleased with the level of service provided by QED especially by Nick Skelly who did an amazing job with finding me the type of employment I was looking for in a very short time. I have been provided with detailed information about jobs in my area that specialise in costs and once I have agreed to go to an interview the same was arranged very quickly and I was informed about the progress on a day to day basis. Thanks to Nick I have got a great job and Looking forward to a fresh start! Very highly recommended.
Anna B, Merseyside
I would like to highly recommend speaking to Christina Harlowe if you are looking for a new role. I have found Christina to be very professional, friendly and approachable - she is an asset to the QED legal Team. Christina was able to find a suitable job for me within two weeks of speaking with her. I am very grateful to Christina for all the all the hard work and effort that she has put in to find this role for me. Christina - thank you once again for all your efforts they are much appreciated.
Parminder B, London
I found Neil more than helpful in my search for an NQ Private Client position. He worked hard on my behalf to access key decision makers, and seemed to be able to get me interviews for positions which I would not necessarily have thought I had the requisite experience for. He had good contacts and a good understanding of the market. He was keen to give me a good insight into the firm as part of my interview preparation and was very diligent in keeping in touch over progress with the various firms. Through Neil’s efforts, I found myself in a position where I had several offers and Neil’s efforts definitely contributed to that situation. I do feel that Neil made a significant difference to my search for a suitable NQ position and I would recommend him.
Kirsten M, Scotland
I wish to thank Neil for all his assistance and support in finding me my NQ position. Without his knowledge and skills I would still be worrying about my finding an NQ position. His experience and contacts within Scottish law firms is truly amazing. He provides you with relevant information about the firm and prepares you fully for interviews. It took Neil only a matter of weeks to find me my NQ position with a top 100 UK law firm and I would recommend using Neil and QED for locating your next legal position. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
Tom H, Scotland
Jemma - I'm pleased to confirm that I handed in my notice yesterday and confirmed my start date with my new firm. I would like to thank you so much for what you have done for me. In the space of a week you have changed my life!
Joanna L, North Yorkshire
I just wanted to say thank you to Jason for assisting me with my job applications. I found Jason to be very professional and didn't just recommend a role; he was informative and made recommendations which were relevant to my experience and future progression. I am pleased to say that I was successful in an application Jason submitted on my behalf and looking forward to starting my new role
Joelle B, London
Jemma is a great advisor, attentive, focused, flexible, very committed and hard working, takes initiative, never had to chase her, provided regular updates, took time to discuss my needs at length... a delight to work with...
Agata D, Birmingham
The service I was provided with by QED was friendly, efficient and quick which enabled me to get the job that I wanted. Would definitely recommend Jason to friends looking for employment.
Jess S, London
Jason was very helpful, supportive and proactive in helping me secure a new job. He was professional and very easy to communicate with via email and telephone. I would definitely recommend QED legal as I received a really great service. Thanks Jason.
Julie K, Kent
I would highly recommend QED Legal to anyone looking for jobs within the legal industry. I especially found Jemma Williamson to be a highly professional consultant who helped me find the right position and identified the key criteria I was looking for in my next role.
Suzy O, West Yorkshire
Jason, I found you very friendly, approachable and most important efficient as you helped secure me a new role within a week of approaching QED. I would definitely recommend you to others in the future.
Gaia P, Surrey
I have used many recruiters over a period of time and I can safely say Jason is by far the best I have ever come across. He took time to really understand me and what I was looking for. I have already passed his details on many times and would do so without doubt.
Sarah A, Surrey
On first point of call with Jason, we went into depth with regards my needs and requirements. I was felt instantly at ease with him by the way he came across; friendly, professional and a delight to speak to. Within a few hours of our initial conversation Jason had already managed to secure several applications and kept me informed throughout of updates and progress everyday. In all my experience, I have never come across such a dedicated individual that really gives it his all. Would I recommend him to others? 110%
Sabeen J, London
Jason, as far as I'm concerned, my search for a job was handled very professionally, and great effort was made to find the suitable job for me, rather than getting me to fit to an available job.
Rob B, London
Jason has good market knowledge and is commercially astute. He provided an efficient service in the recruitment process, from initial interviews through to the negotiations and conclusion. Throughout it all he provided helpful insights and remained polite and courteous; always managing to keep myself (and the firm) updated. He also balanced retaining momentum throughout the process, without haranguing either side. He provided an excellent service and I look forward to working with him again, either as a recruiter or a candidate.
Rob K, London (City)
Jason took the time to talk to me, finding the right role to fit my requirements. I found him to be helpful in discussing my needs and knowledgeable of the market. He followed up on my placement with me to ensure I was happy and it was a good fit. I would recommend him to anyone currently looking for a new role.
Paul N, London
The service was consultative as opposed to a sake focused recruitment initiative. Jason genuinely cared about the career decision I was making and apart from being personable, he was able to provide direction and strategic advice when it came to negotiation.
Honesty is also a rare trait in recruitment. Jason has it in abundance and is responsive and professional.
Ashfaque K, London (City)
I signed up to QED Legal a while ago when looking for secretarial work. I always kept myself on their books in case an opportunity were to arise. Kim called me whilst I was on my lunch break one day and within a week I had 2 interviews and 1 job offer. Kim was very quick and efficient whilst not being pushy. I am very pleased with the service I have received from QED Legal and if their other consultants are as on the mark as Kim, then you can’t go wrong!
Kate L, South East
Having been placed into a new role by Garry Mewett of QED, I can honestly say that he acted speedily but yet professionally.
I now have my dream job which is ideally suited to my personality, aspirations and qualifications.
I would thoroughly recommend QED to employers, friends and family alike. They really have set themselves apart from the crowd.
Natalie F, South West
I had the pleasure of working with Kim during my career transition in July 2014. Kim was immediately dedicated to helping me and even provided support in ways I didn’t know I needed assistance in (but she was right!). Her advice was extremely valuable, intelligent and thorough plus I could always count on her to follow up when/how she said she would. I have already recommended her to others who are open to job search guidance and I will continue to do so with confidence. Thanks, Kim!
Ola M, Home Counties
Neil was extremely efficient from start to finish, demonstrating excellent knowledge and understanding of the legal jobs market in Scotland. Neil actively pursued a number of firms on my behalf, keeping in regular contact with me throughout. Within three weeks of first making contact with Neil, I secured a position. Highly recommended
Harriet R, Scotland
I found Jemma to be very knowledgeable of the legal market
and found her advice and support invaluable. Moving jobs is such a huge step to
take and Jemma made the process less daunting and gave me all the information
and support I needed to make an informed decision. Would highly recommend.
Lisa D, South Yorkshire
Jemma, I've never felt as supported by such a reliable recruitment company. Thanks for everything, you've been brilliant
Chloe H, Leeds, West Yorkshire
With Jemma - your progress becomes her progress. She knew exactly what my goal was and helped me to achieve it. Jemma truly represents the firm motto, "thus it is demonstrated", by demonstrating her commitment to me to ensure I secured my goal. I have nothing but praise for her professionalism and concern.
Tola O, East Midlands
Greg, firstly I would like to say thank you for your help in finding me a new position. I found that your service was extremely helpful, always keeping me updated and also calling to find out how things went. I found you were professional and very easy to talk to.
I would recommend your service to people seeking work and if I was in a position of unemployment again or searching for work, I would definitely come back to you for your services.
Hakim A, East Anglia
Jemma was really helpful with my job search. She listened to what I was looking for and didn't put me forward for every job under the sun which is what a lot of recruitment consultants do nowadays! She kept me informed and updated throughout the whole process, prepared me well for my interview and was constantly checking in throughout my job search. She knew the area well and was full of handy tips and advice! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a job! Thanks again Jemma!
Sarah C, Leeds, West Yorkshire
Having travelled Australia for the best part of a year, I was understandably apprehensive about my prospects of securing a Solicitor role in a declining market. As soon as I heard that QED had a vacancy with a Top 20 International Law Firm I was immediately interested. Greg and Nick were both fantastic. The process was so quick and easy. From applying for the role, to being interviewed, to being offered the job, the whole process took less than a week. Nick even managed to secure me an immediate start which came in handy given my lack of funds post-travelling. I would definitely recommended QED Legal to my friends and colleagues or indeed anyone looking for a new opportunity. Thanks a lot guys…
Phil S, Manchester
I found the service provided by Nick Skelly to be efficient, professional and effective. My requirements for my new role were conveyed to the prospective employer and the details regarding the available position suited my requirements and my skills. I was kept informed at all times of the progress of the application and given precise details of the interview dates, times and place. I was quickly informed of the decision made.
Overall I would highly recommend Nick Skelly for his professional and friendly approach. Thanks to him I was successful in my move to a new position in a very short period of time.
Jackie T, Staffordshire
I would highly recommend Neil Campbell to any colleagues or friends looking for a career in law. Neil goes beyond the call of duty and is the best recruiter I have ever used. He knows the business inside out, gets to know you and us excellent at placing you with an employer he knows will work. Thank you Neil for all your support over the years. I wouldn't go with anyone else.
Karen B, Scotland
Garry - I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with your
recent hard work in finding me employment so quickly. You could not have done
any more for me. You were always available and very proactive. If the need arises I would be delighted to use you again
and will certainly recommend you.
Malcolm F, Sussex
I have used Neil's recruitment skills over the past 7 and a half years. As a recruiter, I have always found that Neil will listen carefully to my spec and fully understand the position being recruited for before bringing me details of candidates who match the spec and who are of the highest quality for consideration. A highly professional service all round
Stephanie C, Glasgow
I would recommend QED Legal Recruitment to anyone looking to change jobs. Neil knew his clients inside out. I have never known a recruiter to have so much information about the job, the employer and their people. He was very professional and kept me in the loop at all times, even when he was on holiday! Excellent service!
Jacqueline T, Scotland
Kim's communication from start to finish was fantastic. I got the help I needed to find the perfect role for me. The process was a pleasure from start to finish thanks to Kim's hard work
Philip V, Buckinghamshire
I found the service provided by Jemma at QED both helpful and professional. She worked with me to find me the right role and worked with the firm I have joined to find the right fit for them. I would recommend Jemma at QED to other solicitors who are looking to find their next role.
Janice W, South Yorkshire
Neil was helpful throughout the process of being
recruited. From our first conversation it was clear that he was a straight down
the line operator who saw things as they are and spoke to that effect. This
made the whole process refined and time efficient. Neil is an excellent
sounding board for discussing how one might want to approach an interview to
maximise their chances. I also have to credit Neil with reassuring me of my
capabilities which made all the difference come the 2nd interview. Furthermore, when
I was discussing the terms of the company's offer with Neil he had the
knowledge of the market to advise when "enough was enough". He can do
this with a relative stranger because Neil is a very personable professional. He
knows what he is talking about and expresses himself well. He is the first
person I would call if I ever felt a change was required. A credit to himself
and his employer.
Iain W, Scotland
Hi Nick, things
are going well. Thanks for all your help in securing me a new role. Everyone is really lovely and I am settling in very well.
Cassie C, Shropshire
I found Jason to be very personable and

recommend Jason. Thank you

Elle W, London
Kim is a friendly,
well organised and approachable recruiter who works hard to get her
candidates the right role for them. During my dealings with Kim, I
found that she was always available to speak with me and guided me through the
interview and recruitment process to ensure that I was fully informed at all
Lorna B, Buckinghamshire
I have nothing but kind positive words for
QED Legal Recruitment and my recruitment consultant Greg. Greg kept me informed
from the very first stage till the last stage of my recruitment process which I
really appreciate. However, what I respected the most was the advice I was
given which was solely for my benefit and best interest.
Matthew A, East Midlands
I couldn't recommend Jemma
highly enough. She was extremely professional and very prompt in keeping me
updated; I never once had to chase her. In a tough climate for criminal legal
aid lawyers she did a fantastic job in helping me secure my new job...Thank
Zahra H, East Midlands
is professional, personable, effective and refreshingly honest. She works
extremely hard for her candidates and exceeded all my expectations when it came

Gail C, Scotland
Thank you Kim for
your excellent work. I felt that you were very supportive and friendly
throughout the process and that you had a good understanding of a niche
specialism. You found a quality role for me which I would not have otherwise
considered. I am looking forward to starting my new position in January 2015.
Faisal H, Greater London
Thank you so much for finding this fantastic opportunity for me. I can't believe
I secured a job within a couple of days really. A great job too!
My partner and I are so excited.

help. You have been pro-active, prompt and responsive, available
to advise whenever I needed. Thank you.
Nicola W, North West
Jemma is excellent at what she does and I would therefore have
no hesitation in recommending her. It can be a very daunting and uncertain
process changing jobs (at Partner level) and Jemma was helpful, encouraging and supportive in
every way possible.
Lee E, East Midlands
Kim was friendly, helpful, understanding and easy to
communicate with - not a typical annoying agent! Thanks for helping me find a great new role!
Rebecca K, Hertfordshire
Highly recommended - especially Nick Skelly. Cannot do
enough for you - even after I accepted a job offer Nick was still on hand to
see if QED could be of any further assistance.
If I ever wish to find another job (hopefully I
will not) QED will be my first point of call
Lyn R, Merseyside
I couldn't be happier with the service provided by Nick
Skelly at QED Legal Recruitment. He was always available when I needed to
discuss potential positions and only offered to put my CV forward for positions
that were commensurate with my level of experience and salary expectations. He
managed to secure an interview for me with a prestigious law firm and I was
offered a position with a package that exceeded my expectations. I would like
to work with him again but hope I don't have to! I highly recommend Nick to
anyone looking for a new job in the legal sector. Thanks for all your help.
Joe G, Merseyside
was in contact with Jemma a month before I was due to move from Australia to
England. From our first telephone conversation she told me was going to find me
a job before I arrived. And she did!! A week before I'm due to arrive, and I
have been offered a position in a conveyancing role which was exactly what I
was after. Jemma is efficient, friendly and her determination to find me a job
has helped make my big move a lot easier. Thank you!
Antonet M, South Yorkshire
I cannot recommend
QED enough as a legal recruitment agency in Scotland. They have great, "on
the ground" knowledge of the legal sector in Scotland, which really feeds
back into the relevance of the advice and the quality of the service they
provide. Not only is it very apparent that they have a good relationship with
partners and HR teams within the firms they represent, but they really took
time to understand what I, as a potential candidate, was looking for and what
my skills and aspirations were, enabling them to suggest really great, very suitable
potential jobs for me. They are friendly, professional and honest in their
approach and brilliantly efficient. They really make finding a new role as
stress-free as possible.
Jen C, Scotland
Jemma - just wanted to say thank you very much for
your proactive and friendly approach. Highly recommended.
Sean G, West Yorkshire
had such a great experience with Jemma. From the moment we spoke she understood
all my needs and went above and beyond to make sure I had a successful start in
my new job. She was so easy to speak to and set me up in my dream job where I'm
the happiest I could be. She is one of the best recruiters I have spoken to and I would 100%
recommend Jemma and QED to anyone. Thank you so much for everything.
You have helped me so much.
Kate R, North East
From the moment I first spoke to Greg he worked extremely
hard to quickly find a number of roles that suited me. He was professional and

recommend Greg to anybody looking for a new job. Thank you very much.
Victoria T, Cambridgeshire
Thanks for your time this morning Jemma, I confirm that I am ready

Cherry M, West Yorkshire
I found Nick Tappin to be extremely helpful in my job search.
He kept me up to date at all times, phoning me after interviews and then
regularly to give updates, even if it was just to say he had not heard anything
yet. This was extremely useful as you were not left wondering what was
happening. When a job offer arrived, we talked about the response and I am
delighted that he helped me secure the position I wanted. I would not hesitate
to recommend Nick or his colleagues to my friends if need help with job
Emma B, Dorset
Jemma approached me and directed me on to the right path and knew

stayed in close contact throughout the process. I would highly recommend
appointing Jemma and cannot thank her enough for all her hard work!

submitted my interest. Jemma @ QED contacted me straight away to discuss the

I would highly recommend Neil if you are considering
looking for a new position. Neil recently placed me with a firm I really wanted
to work with but weren't actively recruiting. I was kept up to date throughout
the process but never felt under any pressure to take a job that wasn't right
for me. I found Neil to be really easy to deal with, I could ask him the
questions I wouldn't dare to ask a prospective employer and always got a
straightforward and honest answer. I really appreciated Neil's help, advice and
support throughout the process.

"My whole experience with QED and with my contact
there, Neil, was great. I felt they really took time to understand what I was
looking for in a new position and their knowledge of the industry and, more
importantly, the contacts they have within various high profile, well-respected
law firms, meant I was given tailored, helpful, insightful advice throughout. I
was offered as much guidance and support as I needed throughout the recruitment
process, from discussing potential new roles, to interview technique advice, to
salary negotiations. I felt I could trust Neil to achieve the best
possible result for me and had absolute confidence in the service QED provided.
I would definitely recommend QED to anyone who is looking or thinking of

Dominic K, West Yorkshire
Toby, as my recruitment consultant you were professional and focused. I was particularly impressed that you quickly assimilated the factors I was looking for in a post, and focused my attention to the roles that met those requirements. I wasn't put in the position of having to turn down suggested roles, on the basis that they did not take into account my preferences. I have recommended you to several people in the past few months, and will happily continue to do so. Thank you for the fantastic service I received from you.

Prior to coming to Toby I had struggled to find an agent that really appreciated my skills and the type of opportunities that I would be best suited for. I now have a fantastic job and I can't praise Toby and the team at QED highly enough.
Nicola F, Cheshire

I now have what I believe is an excellent move for me to a very good firm with a good remuneration package and prospects for advancement. You have far exceeded my expectations and easily outshone other agencies I have spoken to. I would recommend your services without hesitation. Kind regards David

Deborah M, Manchester
I was contacted by QED Legal within hours of starting my job search. After a thorough initial consultation, I was given a good idea of the market and what to expect. A plan of action was also put in place. This plan soon bore fruit, as I was installed in a role which suited my needs perfectly in next to no time. QED Legal were very approachable throughout the whole process. I have recommended them to others on many occasions since.
Simon E, Lancashire
Toby was a pleasure to deal with and took the time to not only talk to me but more importantly to listen to what it was that I was actually looking for in a new role and to consider my requirements before discussing possible vacancies without putting any pressure on me to make quick decisions. I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a new position.
Barbara T, Manchester
Toby identified the perfect firm for me to work at. He was supportive and helpful at all stages and even called me at 7pm on a Friday evening to let me know I had the job as he hadn’t been able to get hold of me earlier. He certainly went the extra mile for me and I can’t recommend him highly enough.

'Toby Williamson has demonstrated himself to be the finest recruitment consultant in the North West. He is personable with a good knowledge of the legal market. He takes time to understand where you are in your career and is very keen to offer honest excellent advice as to what you should look for to reach your goals. It is quickly very clear that QED have an ethic of treating their candidates as people and ambitious people at that rather than just a commodity to be traded. Toby was always quick to respond to my phone calls and emails and reverted to me even when I had not been successful for a specific role. Toby was also very good at always providing feedback rather than simply losing interest when you were no longer in consideration for a role. Once Toby had taken the time to do this he then found a suitable role at an excellent firm offering exactly the type of work and variety I was looking for. I later found out that the role had been created based on Toby's recommendation of me. I truly cannot speak highly enough of Toby Williamson and QED and would highly recommend them. If I needed a job ever again I would not go anywhere else.'

Jemma at QED helped me to find a job which matched my requirements exactly and is a great move for me. She was prompt in contacting me on every occasion and provided excellent guidance on interview techniques and what the recruiting firm were looking for in an employee. I'm happy I made contact with QED in assisting me with potential job opportunities.
Parminder O, East Midlands
Jemma assisted with placing me into a new role in December 2012. This was a daunting time for me and a very big step but Jemma was both personable and professional, giving guidance every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Jemma to either businesses looking to recruit or individuals looking for career opportunities
Kelly T, East Midlands
I contacted QED Legal in response to a particular vacancy they were advertising for a Legal Practice Manager. Toby was very helpful and had a good knowledge of his clients needs and after a detailed discussion about my qualifications and experience he put my details forward. I was fortunate enough to get an interview along with several other candiates and after some pro-active follow up calls from Toby I was offered the position. The firm and the scope of the job are exactly as Toby outlined to me and I am very happy and settled in my new role. I would not hesistate to recommend QED Legal if you are looking for a change in your legal career.
Helen P, North West
QED went above and beyond in placing me when time was critical. Jemma Williamson was extremely professional and dedicated in her dealings with me. I felt as though I was a valued client and well looked after. Most importantly, Jemma was always there to take my calls and help me with any queries I had.
Mohammed P, Yorkshire
I found my experience with QED recruitment very professional, informative and generally over and above what you normally expect from a recruitment agency. I thought Toby was extremely knowledgable in the industry and proactive. He had no hesitation in suggesting ways forward and within a few days of our initial consultation he had already arranged interviews with three excellent firms. Toby was not afraid to go the extra mile and regularly contacted me outside the normal office hours with updates. I would recommend QED and Toby to anyone in this industry.
Sam H (Solicitor L500 commercial firm), North West
I highly recommend Toby at QED for his professionalism in greatly assisting me in my job search. He took my personality and career needs into consideration, listened, and provided advice, support and feedback. Toby arranged 3 good interviews in a couple of weeks and assisted in me obtaining a super package. Toby was brilliant from the beginning- he understood the current market and the position that I was looking for and suggested realistic possibilities.Toby made the whole process of looking for a new job rewarding, tireless and personal. He stood out from all the other people at different recruitment agencies as he kept in great contact with me and let me know he was always available to help. The biggest advantage for me in using Toby at QED was the fact that he did not waste countless hours waffling on, the speed in which he secured interviews and his astute understanding of the present market.

QED provided me with a first class and personable service during my search for work. They assessed my potential and always made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. It was particularly motivating having Jemma's pre-interview calls which always helped to put you in a positive frame of mind. I would definitely recommend them in the future.

I have posted my signed contract back to the firm today and would like to thank you for putting me forward for the job. From the moment I submitted my CV you were putting me forward for jobs and within a matter of days I had an interview shortly followed by a job offer. Thank you so much for your advice and assistance.
Sue B, North West
I applied to QED during a tumultuous and turbulent time in Legal Recruitment, especially in the North West. Toby found me an excellent position in a well respected Firm with both great prospects and a remuneration and benefits package above my expectations. I was kept apprised at every step and I found the service levels and advice exemplary. Toby really went the extra step for me, be it phone calls at a time I could manage, or using his extensive links in the North West to secure the best career move for me. I would recommend Toby and the team at QED to all those requiring the assistance of specialist legal recruiters.
J Hughes, North West
Toby of QED legal provided an excellent service and I would highly recommend his services. I was contacted within hours of submitting an application and an interview arranged the same day. Throughout the process he provided me with professional advice and assurance.

QED are very helpful and professional and found me a great job within days of registering with them and kept me fully informed of the process from start to finish thank you for your help and assistance
C Toon, North West
In a market where commercial "fee" considerations often outweigh the suitability of placement imperative, Toby is a refreshing change , approaching the task of helping to secure a rewarding career move with a caring , bespoke methodology. Toby is a throughly decent and effective fellow whom I would happily recommend. He will always put your interests first.
J Colvin, North West
I signed up with QED and Jemma Williamson was straight on the case. Within 2 weeks she had secured me an interview with one of the top 500 Law Firms. I was then invited to a second interview and got the job. Jemma has been absolutely fantastic. She took all the pressure off me. Found me the right role that suited me and secured the interview. I cant sing her praises enough. I would recommend QED and Jemma to anyone looking for the right position in the Law Industry. Thanks again Jemma.
