At a difficult time, approaching qualification and looking for an NQ role, Errington Legal made contact with me and made the whole process so much easier and less daunting. Both Eleanor and Ellie were fantastic, helping me to prepare my CV, target the right the firms and provide great advice and assistance heading into the interviews. Without Errington Legal’s knowledge of the legal jobs market and strong relationships with local firms, I would not have been able to secure the role that I did. I can’t recommend them enough!
