Private Client Solicitor, Leeds

The most important thing to me when seeking a new role was – working at a firm with extremely experienced people, allowing me to work alongside and learn from the best.

I had high expectations of Bailey Hunter, I knew they had a good reputation.

They did meet my expectations – Claire had already contacted me quite a while before placing me into my new role and explained she would touch base as I was coming up for qualification and she didn’t forget to.
I also knew that Claire had placed someone else I knew, from my current firm, who was experiencing the same issues as me and they thrived in their new role.

Having had poor experiences with recruitment agents previously I was reluctant to use their services however Claire has changed my mind. Claire takes time to understand the business needs, she is friendly, honest, supportive and has saved us so much time in the recruitment process. Her help has been quite invaluable and I would not hesitate to use Claire and Bailey Hunter for all our future requirements

Private Client Fee Earner, Leeds

Claire was great at finding me interviews and securing me with a job offer. She knew exactly what I was looking for, was attentive and really helped with the interview preparation by having a video call and talking me through key points. Claire was even available when she was away and after her work hours. I didn’t accept the offer that Claire helped me secure but she was understanding and has followed up with me since to check how I was getting on. I would definitely recommend Claire to anyone else that is looking for legal work.
