  • ​I have worked with David for a number of years on secretarial recruitment.  I have always found him to be responsive, committed and professional in his approach.  We have recruited a number of excellent candidates via David, who always takes the time to understand the culture of the organisation and the needs of the role, and match this to the experience and career aspirations of the candidates.

  • ​I have known and worked with JM Legal for more years than I care (or wish) to remember and in particular, I worked closely with Lee, recruiting legal secretaries into various firms. What I appreciate most is that JM Legal know their market inside out and they make it their business to understand your firm and its culture.  This ensures that it is not just the skills set that they get right, but they also get the right ‘fit’.   Lee genuinely takes your comments and concerns on board and has a wealth of knowledge which he is always willing to share. As well as being professional and easy to talk to, he is also good fun to work with!

  • ​David is the first recruiter we reach out to for our support staff; he always finds candidates that fit exactly what we are looking for.  He is honest, has great knowledge and gets it on a commercial level.  He has played a crucial role in helping us find some of our top employees.

  • ​I’ve worked with Lee at JM Legal for a number of years now, mainly on PA recruitment. He has always been approachable and knowledgeable on market conditions and puts forward excellent quality candidates for the roles he is working on. He knows his candidates well and ensures that they are ready for interview, and equally, he has always been helpful and hands on when it comes to interview logistics. Lee always goes the extra mile to ensure that the business and the candidate is happy at offer stage. I’ve been very happy with the service received from JM Legal to date and I’m excited to continue working with Lee moving forwards.
