Testimonials

Professional Liability & Commercial Litigation

“They are very different from the usual agency style recruiters and as such have access to a wide range of different jobs across the City. I briefed them on what I wanted and I found consultants who provided a totally personalized service. They were the only consultants to find me a job in Aviation. I had such an unexpectedly brilliant service from them that I thought you might like to know”

Private Client

“I have worked with Origin for a couple of years now. I have always appreciated their friendly approach, openness and honesty. I know I will get solid advice that I can trust and that there is no hidden agenda. They really make an effort to connect with their clients and to get to know them. And when you genuinely get on, it is that much easier to work together.”

Flint Bishop
