What our clients say

I 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
