Errington Legal provided excellent assistance in landing an exciting NQ position. They were proactive, informative and reassuring throughout and helped to make what was first anticipated to be a long and stressful experience into a very short and positive one. Errington have an excellent knowledge of the NQ market and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anybody, irrespective of career stage.
I cannot recommend Hollie at Errington more highly. She was so helpful and the communication from her was first rate. She fully understood my skills and background and the things that were important to me and my prospective employer. I would not hesitate to use Hollie again, had she not already helped me to get the perfect job.
Eleanor was fantastic to deal with. She took time to go through my background and ran through all of the available positions in detail. Within 24 hours of our first conversation, Eleanor had secured three interviews for me with my preferred firms. Eleanor and the rest of the Errington team were very prompt to respond to queries, very quick to update me with news and on hand to provide invaluable advice regarding the recruitment process. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
I have never used an agency to find a position before but Hollie at Errington Legal has made my experience very easy. I have been invited to apply for positions that meet my criteria and after two successful interviews I have now found a new job that I am excited to start. Hollie and the team have been very supportive and communicated at every stage. I would highly recommend Errington Legal to anyone looking for employment in the legal sector.
I cannot thank Hollie enough for helping me secure the perfect position. Throughout the whole process Hollie has been helpful, professional and always kept me up to date. I set out my requirements during our first conversation and Hollie went above and beyond to find me a position that suited. The time and attention given to my search is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Eleanor and the team are always aiming to provide a first class service to us and also their candidates, and will advise and work very hard on all parties’ behalf. The calibre of introductions made by Errington Legal are for us, the strongest in the East Anglia market. They always make themselves available to have a friendly, informal chat and would not hesitate to recommend them to new clients or those looking for a new position.
We have worked with Errington Legal for a number of years sourcing both legal and support candidates. The team at Errington Legal always takes time to fully brief themselves about the role, putting forward candidates who closely match our requirements. I would recommend Errington Legal for their excellent, client-centric service.
"I first emailed Hollie of Errington Legal with my CV and what sort of position I was looking to move into in March. She called me within 24 hours of receiving my CV to discuss in more detail what exactly it was I wanted to do and help move my career forward. Within a week she had found me a suitable role and put me forward for interview. I got offered the position and Hollie has been a total superstar with keeping in touch, giving me all the information I needed and answering/solving any problems or queries I have had, above and beyond the call of duty! I would recommend Hollie and of course Errington Legal for anyone looking for a new role, she really takes the time to listen to you and find you the perfect job."
'Hollie really listened to my career aspirations and took the time to select a specific role. I received 1:1 interview coaching which gave me confidence throughout the entire recruitment process. Thanks to Errington I have secured my ideal job, much sooner and with much more ease than I could possibly have done without them!' Thanks again to Hollie, especially for the time she spent with me going over interview questions and for you negotiating my salary yesterday'.
'I worked with Ellie on several roles in Cambridge in 2016. These were excellent opportunities which I could not have located otherwise. Ellie prepared me extremely well for interview and clearly understood the firms and their requirements well. She really got to know me, understood my priorities and used this knowledge to help me demonstrate how my experience and interests matched the needs of these employers. Ellie was also strategically and tactically very astute. Her work secured me several interviews and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other candidates in future.'
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.
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!
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.
I cannot praise Errington Legal and Eleanor enough. I have never been with a recruitment agency who really fight your corner. without Eleanor I would never have come across the role I now hold. Eleanor spoke with people on my behalf and really pushed my case, as well as offering advice and preparation tips she could not be more helpful. I am most grateful for all the help and support, thanks to Eleanor I have now found my niche in a job that I truly love and enjoy.
I have been recently placed in a role in Cambridge through Errington Legal. Eleanor really took the time to understand my specific needs for my new role and her support and advice really assisted me through the application process. I was extremely impressed by Errington Legal's professionalism and knowledge of the sector and their client base, which assisted me in making the right decisions. I would not hesitate to recommend Errington Legal to anyone looking for a new role in Cambridge and I wish them very success in the future.
The level of service which I received from Eleanor was consistently excellent. She took the time to fully understand my situation and to identify the options that would be most suitable for me. She has an excellent knowledge of the legal market in East Anglia and is highly astute. I have no hesitation in recommending Eleanor.
I have dealt with recruitment agencies in the past that were all pretty similar in their approach to my needs. Errington Legal I found were refreshingly different, they were always well organised throughout the recruitment process; keeping me regularly and sufficiently updated on any issue that arose. What stood out to me was the support they offered during the interview process, it gave me real confidence and helped me to think about my approach to those tricky interview questions. I highly recommend Errington Legal Recruitment to anyone as they are genuine and really want you to succeed.
