Within 2 weeks of getting in touch with Alison, she helped me secure a role. She has been very helpful and prompt. I was able to reach Alison as and when I needed it. Thank you, Alison, for all your effort!

Matt was fantastic in helping me find a position. Extremely friendly and supportive which is really key when going through this process. He impressed on me to feel free to ask any questions at any time during the process and when I did I received a quick and friendly response. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt and am grateful for his encouragement throughout the process.

I would highly recommend Matt at LR Legal, he has been absolutely fantastic. Matt is very professional in his knowledge and wisdom but also gives such a personal approach and really makes you feel like he is on your side and has your best interests! I'm lucky to have found Matt and have recommended him to all my friends!

I was lucky enough to speak to Alison Banks regarding a new role and, whilst I wasn't successful in securing that role, I have since used the positive comments and guidance provided by Alison to secure a new role in a different sector. I would thoroughly recommend Alison and LR Legal to anyone. They are professional, well informed and I felt fully prepared and supported throughout the interview process.
I contacted LR Legal through a mutual contact I had on LinkedIn. I received a response the same day and was put in touch with Alice Neal. First contact was over the phone which was informative and managed my expectations. Within 24 hours, Alice had got me two opportunities to which applications were submitted. From start to finish, the process from contact with Alice to being offered the job was 2 weeks. Alice was available to take my calls even out of office hours and worked with a high level of discretion which was necessary.
Alice Neal recently assisted me with finding my next step in my career, she was very helpful and went the extra mile even keeping in touch during her annual leave!
