We aim to offer exceptional services to all our candidates and clients and we think we are pretty good at delivering results. However, you don’t have to take our word for it; we’re proud to share some of the excellent feedback we have received from our clients over the years.

Claire helped us out when we were in extremis after another candidate gave backword at the last moment. She was on to it straightaway and found a really super Trainee Solicitor for us. Claire is proactive, clearly has good contacts and is good at matching candidates to appropriate firms.

I used Bailey Hunter whilst looking for a new job. Their service was second to none. I was contacted on the same day I made an enquiry and within a week I had an interview for my current position. I secured the job and they successful negotiated all the terms for me without any fuss. Claire even took time out of her holiday to help me out. I would definitely recommend Bailey Hunter to any candidate looking for a professional and efficient service.

Claire took time to learn about our business requirements before putting forward quality candidates for our consideration.

Thank you for all of your help with my recent move, the assistance and guidance given was a great help, especially after being in my previous role for so long. I don’t plan on another move any time soon as I am enjoying my new role, but if I ever did I would be sure to contact Bailey Hunter.

Having never used an employment agency before I was unsure of what to expect. The service I received from Claire was very personable and professional throughout. She kept me up to date with everything during my placement and maintained confidentiality at all times.

Claire Cox has always shown an intuition as to our recruitment needs at Gordon Brown Associates. She keeps in touch with us and will make a point of visiting the practice at regular intervals.

As always, excellent service provided by Claire. She makes a point of coming in to see exactly what structure and teams we have in place and the type of work the teams do. This undoubtedly saves us the client time in the selection process, so we only see candidates who meet our requirements.

Claire took time to find out about our business initially and what our particular requirements are. The candidates she puts forward are always well screened and briefed about our business and the position.

Claire gives honest constructive advice and feedback and her candidates have always been of a high quality.

Lesley Fraser - HR Manager

We have worked alongside Claire since the launch of her business in 2008 and are so pleased to see that the business has grown from strength to strength - this success is certainly well deserved. It can be difficult to take that step into launching your own business but Claire is a great example of how things can, and do, work out. To be celebrating a year in business is a great achievement, particularly in the current climate and we wish Claire all the very best for the future."

I obtained my current position through Claire. From my first contact with her I was hugely impressed at her knowledge of the legal recruitment market together with her commitment and endeavour. Claire was also prepared to assist further than expected or necessary in relation to other positions for which I had applied. I would have no hesitation in recomending Claire to any lawyer seeking a new position or finding themselves looking for work.

Claire helped me look for NQ positions in a difficult market. She is very responsive and has a good personable approach. Claire made sure she understood what it was I wanted by asking relevant question as opposed to just sending my CV out without knowing my requirements. She made a point of updating me without being asked. Her help was valuable and much appreciated.

Claire is able to work giving a very close and personalised service - because the business is her - in putting forward candidates, because she takes the trouble to understand the culture of the business. She understands the importance of cultural, and not just "job description", fit.

I found Claire to be very personable, knowledgeable and professional with a good understanding of my position as an applicant. A breath of fresh air in the legal agency world, she was able to match me well to the firm I am with now. I would definitely recommend her to other solicitors looking for work in the future.

Claire has assisted me in finding me my new role at Makin Dixon Solicitors. She took the time to ascertain the kind of firm that I could work well in, having worked at my previous firm through my training contract and beyond. This was very important to me. What really impressed me was the follow up that came from both Claire and Helen at each stage of the process. They were always available to discuss any matter when I needed them. I would happily recommend Claire to a solicitor seeking a change of role.

I have known Claire for 7 years and I can truly say that she is the best recruitment consultant I have ever encountered. Claire effectively understands my needs and acts professionally and diligently in implementing my requirements. I have never been put forward for roles that were not within my remit, and her ability and contacts have always ensured that I can be successfully placed. I cannot recommend Claire highly enough.

I found Claire had a wealth of first hand experience and listened to me. She didn't push me in the direction which best suited her. I feel I made the right choice and had excellent advice and support. My advice is to chat with Claire and heed her advice, you won't feel as you're being pigeon holed. She has the right connections and time to listen and did really understand. I can't recommend Bailey Hunter enough. Claire - you get 5 stars from me.

"Claire has been very active in trying to find a suitable candidate for my business. She took the trouble to visit my business premises to get the feel of the environment for which a candidate was sought. She then hand-selected candidates from those on her books, and made specific recommendations. She has been friendly, respectful, and thouroughly understanding throughout."

"I used Bailey Hunter whilst looking for a new job. Their service was second to none. I was contacted on the same day I made an enquiry and within a week I had an interview for my current position.

I would definitely recommend Bailey Hunter to anyone looking for a new role.
