In 2015 Eleanor helped us successfully recruit our first Group Head of Legal Affairs. As a new role to the organisation we appreciated that Eleanor took the time to speak with all of the relevant stakeholders within Cambridge Assessment to understand the type of person that would fit in well. With an understanding of our organisation she created a strong foundation that supported the search throughout its entirety. The shortlisting options that Eleanor provided highlighted just how well she knows the legal market and represented her strong understanding of our requirements. If you are looking for an expert in Legal recruiting, someone who truly understands good cultural fit, then I would recommend Errington Legal.
