Private Practice

What matters to our candidates and our clients.

Most of the solicitors that approach us are looking for a recruiter to assist them; they are not looking for the agent to take over. Candidates want their recruiter to provide useful market knowledge, support, and suggestions. A key concern can be confidentiality and loss of control over where personal details have been sent. Candidates working with Errington Legal always retain this control.

We have no other agenda except to secure you a role that meets all of your objectives, and we are proud of the impact that we make on a search.

Errington Legal are here to offer practical suggestions, share market knowledge, and offer guidance and support throughout the process.

Testimonials

"I regard Sean to be in the premier league of legal recruiters. He is personable, professional, insightful and always willing to assist. He also knows his market and is sought after for his experience and knowledge by his many clients. I would not hesitate to recommend him for his expertise". Partner, Birketts LLP.
Partner - Birketts - Cambridge
Sean Dodsworth provided excellent assistance in landing an exciting NQ position. Sean was a proactive, informative and reassuring figure throughout and helped to make what was first anticipated to be a long and stressful experience into a very short and positive one. Sean and Errington have an excellent knowledge of the NQ market and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anybody, irrespective of career stage.
NQ Solicitor - Cambridge
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.
Jimmy Wheeler - NQ Solicitor , Cambridge
Sean provided a personable, proactive and supportive service from our initial contact through to accepting an offer. He was readily available when required and on hand to provide feedback and support at all stages of the process. I would not hesitate to recommend Sean to anyone.
NQ Solicitor
Errington Legal are on-point and are fully engaged with wider legal recruitment market, yet also take time to fully understand Birketts' culture and our individual requirements in order to support our growth. 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.
Recruitment Officer - Cambridge
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.
Senior HR Adviser - Suffolk
'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.'
Trainee Solicitor - Trainee Solicitor , Cambridge
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!
Solicitor - Cambridge
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.
Paul - Corporate Solicitor , Cambridge
