Corporate lawyer at Mishcon de Reya LLP

"For personality and understanding of your goals, Jason is second to none. After initially contacting several recruiters to help me find a new position, I quickly learned that many of them forgot to listen to what I was really looking for. Once I had spoken to Jason, I chose not to use anyone else. He developed a strategy early on and guided me expertly through the process of job hunting. I am absolutely ecstatic with the position I managed to obtain with Jason's help and support, and am more than happy to recommend him to everyone" - Leanne Maud - Corporate lawyer at Mishcon de Reya LLP and trustee of the Sophie Hayes Foundation

"Jason provides a personal service and that coupled together with his outstanding knowledge of the legal market, he did a fantastic job of finding me a new position at a great law firm. His guidance and support throughout was very impressive. I felt comfortable and knew Jason was fully aware of what I was looking for. I would (and do) most definitely recommend Jason to other" - Amandeep K - Associate at Dentons UKMEA LLP

Associate at Addleshaw Goddard

"I have known Jason for a number of years now, and I honestly cannot recommend him highly enough for what he does. He is a rare being amongst recruitment agents in that his focus is in getting you into a role that is suitable for you rather than just getting you into any role for the sake of getting the commission. He takes the time to listen to what you want and follows through on that and makes what can be quite a stressful process much easier with the support and encouragement that he gives." - Judy Lankester - Associate at Addleshaw Goddard
