What our clients say

'I write to thank Jemma Williamson for all her hard work in helping me find my current role. Throughout the process Jemma was friendly, respectful and honest. I was only put forward for roles that were geographically relevant and relevant to my previous experience. I found this a refreshing change from the other employment agencies I have had dealings with. I would not hesitate to recommend both Jemma and QED Legal to anyone looking for a new role within the legal sector. I am extremely grateful for all the help and support QED have provided'
