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.
