What Our Clients say about Hayley

“Hayley was by far the best recruitment consultant I have dealt with. She was thorough, professional and supportive, with an exceptional breadth of knowledge regarding in-house legal roles. Throughout the recruitment process she was always on hand to provide a first-class service. Highly recommended.”

Satisfied Candidate

“I recently started a new legal role at a biotechnology company and I must thank Hayley [Rose] for her exceptional service and support throughout the whole process. Hayley was comprehensive in her approach to explaining the role and the company and why I might be a good fit and provided excellent guidance to ensure I was well-prepared for the interviews. During the process, she was very helpful in answering all my queries and always gave me regular updates. It has certainly been one of the best experiences I have had in my career working with a recruiter. Hayley was thorough and very friendly throughout and I would strongly recommend her and the Harvey John team to companies and senior lawyers when considering preferred professional recruitment firms.”

Legal Director

“Hayley has placed several key members of staff (solicitors) with my department over the last six months or so. She takes time to understand my requirements and passes on details of some suitable and great candidates and genuinely matches the right people for the role. Communications are great, and she’s still checking in with me re staff who have been with my firm for a few months. My new colleagues also say good things about her, so I’d recommend Hayley to employers and employees.”
