Errington Legal provided a personal, tailored and friendly service. They listened carefully to the kind of firm that I wanted to work for and the nature of work in which I hoped to be involved then made targeted suggestions based on this. They outlined a range of options to me but were careful not to waste my time or that of firms by putting me forward for interviews for roles which were not aligned with what I was looking for. They also spent time with me in the run up to the interview helping me to prepare. As a result, they found me a role at a firm where I am extremely happy and doing a job which I love, for which I will always be immensely grateful.
