What our clients say

Having 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
