I was recently made redundant and my family and I decided we wanted to move from London to the Southwest. I initially approached one of the large recruitment companies in the area to assist me in finding a suitable role as a solicitor.
The large recruitment company made me follow a laborious administrative on-boarding process (various forms to complete, authenticating/certifying qualifications etc.) during what was already a difficult and stressful time. After completing the process I was contacted about a potential job on one occasion, and then I never heard back from them again – I was extremely disappointed.
After this disappointing experience, I decided to contact Legal Southwest after reviewing their website. My belief was that a small team might potentially offer a bespoke and better service.
From the moment I spoke to Sarah on the telephone I felt confident that Legal Southwest was the right place for me. After an initial discussion I knew that Legal South West would do everything they could to help me find the best possible employment. Legal Southwest was friendly, professional and did everything they said they would. I was amazed to hear back from them so promptly after providing my CV and references, there were no other formalities or hassles. Within a day or two Legal Southwest sent me potential roles which matched my preferences and expectations exactly and shortly thereafter were arranging interviews with potential employers for me.
Legal Southwest took away so much stress and uncertainty which I had at the beginning of the process. They genuinely cared about my goals and aspirations and made every effort to find the perfect role for me. They took care of everything proactively and promptly arranged interviews with law firms in the area without any need for me to chase or follow up.
The level of service I received from Legal Southwest was second to none and in my view head and shoulders above their competitors. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a legal recruitment company in the Southwest.
