Fantastic from the very outset!! Moving from a national practice in the north to a silver circle firm in the city Jennifer was able to guide me through the process. Stand out qualities were being proactive, never having to chase, and always on the ball, hearing about new roles and opportunities before anyone other recruiter in the city. Could not recommend Jennifer enough.

Jaspaul Dhesi

M&A and Corporate Finance Associate, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP

Poppy worked so hard to match the right roles to my skills, experience and my cultural alignment. She knew the team at the role she was recruiting for and took the time to provide background information, advice and support. She dropped me emails of encouragement before interviews and kept me informed throughout the process. She provided a lot of background information on the team and gave me a flavour of the organisation, so that when I received the offer, I had no hesitation in accepting the role. Poppy really took the time to consider which might be the best organisation and role for me and provided me with all the support I could have wished for – it wasn`t just about filling a role as quickly as possible. Thank you so much for a fantastic service, Poppy and DMJ ­– you are definitely a leader in this field.
