What our clients say about Claire

See some of our reviews from our wonderful clients!

“My experience with recruiters before Claire had really been when I’d just graduated. Most recruiters overpromised and under-delivered, didn’t bother with you because they’d obviously found someone more interesting, or just ignored what you were saying and tried to ‘fit a square peg in a round hole’. So you can imagine that I had been very apprehensive speaking about with any other recruiter following this. But this time, I needn’t have worried. Claire is incredibly personable and caring, with an amazing aptitude for finding the right fit for you. She’s the first recruiter I’ve dealt with since I started full-time work who truly listens to what you’re saying and actually sticks to her promises. She has attention to detail and really wants the best for you. Couldn’t recommend her more.”

I have engaged her services many times over the years, she gets to know you as an employer, and the culture of your firm and team and can go out into the world and find the perfect people for your practice. This year (in a very tight employment market) Claire has found us three fantastic new colleagues enabling our business to grow and flourish, thank you so much, Claire!”
