"I have been dealing with Lewis Shepherd who has been assisting me in finding a paralegal position. Lewis contacted me only a few weeks ago with the intention of helping me find that ideal law firm that I have been looking for. His approach, understanding and professionalism has been second to none. I have previously dealt with many recruitment agents but never someone so friendly who I have trusted fully from the get go.

Today I attended the first interview Lewis had arranged for me and have been offered the position which I have decided to accept. He understood exactly the type of firm I was looking for and delivered!

I am extremely grateful and would not hesitate to refer him, as well as the company, to friends and colleagues looking for a change and will definitely remain in contact with Lewis should I need his assistance in the future."

They placed me in my first job in private practice and at that time were always approachable, friendly and very professional. I then worked for a number of years in the public sector until I received a call from Victoria who matched my experience with a role she was recruiting for in private practice.  I had every faith in her and she put me forward and I was successful and have not looked back. She guided me through the interview process all along and was available for me at all times, even outside working hours. I would highly recommend Victoria as a top-class recruitment consultant."

Many thanks and best wishes."

Candidate 024657

"I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you [Natalie] for your kind assistance throughout my application and found your service very professional and friendly. I know I was not always easy to get hold of during the day, so would like to particularly thank you for agreeing to speak to me out of hours and on a Bank holiday. I found it very reassuring that you kept in touch at every stage of the process and really appreciated the directions and tips on interview techniques. Although most of it was common sense, it was helpful to know I was doing it right.

If I'm ever looking for employment in the future, I will definitely give you a call.

Once again, many thanks."

"I was delighted with Natalie's speedy response and her personable manner when dealing with me. She was approachable, listened to my opinions and had taken my opinions on board. I would recommend her to others. Thanks again for your hard work."

Candidate 024657

"Natalie has assisted me with attaining two posts now, and whilst the first one did not work out, I wanted note to be made of the Natalie's very supportive, caring and detailed approach in her dealings with me.

I have unfortunately had to have much dealings with recruiters over the past few years and I have always found them to be quite disinterested in the person on the other end of the phone, and quite bad at following up.

Natalie (and in particular with this last posting) has always taken a great deal of time to go through and over things with me and also to discuss my well being and problems faced. She is extremely patient and makes you feel as though she actually cares about you and your career. This is a rare quality in a recruiter. Natalie even gave me her personal mobile number to call her after my interview as it was scheduled for the evening and she knew that I was very worried about the interview.

In my view Natalie is an asset to your organisation and is very much flying the flag for excellent customer service and interpersonal skills in your staff.

I do hope that this email will be noted and well earned praise and recognition is afforded to Natalie, because she has really helped me through a very hard period and I am confident that should I need her help again, she will be very happy to do so and in the same caring way."

"I recently approached the company to find alternative employment. My first contact point was with Chris and he assisted me in the electronic aspects of my applications, no mean feet since my I.T skills are somewhat lacking, and throughout the course of this part of the procedures he was patient and courtesy personified.

With Chris’s assistance I have found my current position. I am happy here and feel that the matching process obviously conducted by Chris has been of benefit both to my new employers and speaking selfishly myself.

Throughout the whole procedure Chris and others with whom I have dealt with at Lawstaff have been helpful – forgive the saying but I do feel that he is a young man who is willing to go proverbial “extra mile”. 

I have no hesitation in recommending both Chris and Lawstaff to other legal professionals.

In conclusion I cannot recommend him and the company highly enough."
