About DMJ

DMJ Recruitment specialises in legal and company secretarial roles. We started the consultancy because there was the need for a firm that took the time to get to know candidates and clients to deliver the best results for everybody.

We are consultants - we listen to and question you, sharing our insights and expertise when they will make a difference. Consulting is a two way process and being open with us gives our consultants the opportunity to provide you with the best possible service.

We pride ourselves on the fact that our candidates often become clients and vice versa. Many of our relationships date back to before 2007 when we founded DMJ and it is this ethos of long term partnerships that we instil throughout our teams.

If you like our approach then we would like to work with you.

DMJ - Built on long-term relationships

  • David, Marc and Justin founded DMJ Recruitment in February 2007 believing there was demand for a recruitment firm committed to long term relationships with clients and candidates in the legal and company secretarial space.


  • Starting in modest offices in Greville street, DMJ Recruitment built its client base of both leading and up-and-coming companies and law firms by finding the right person for each role, not simply filling vacancies.


  • Many of DMJ's clients and candidates from the early year's continue to work with DMJ - a reflection of its ethos of building relationships and providing consultancy not simply placing people.


  • With the Company Secretarial, Legal In-house, Legal Partners & Mergers and Legal Associates teams all growing DMJ moved from Greville Street to new offices in Smithfield market. 


  • DMJ’s reputation resulted in the company being appointed ICSA’s (the Institute of Company Secretaries and Administrators) sole recruitment partner.


  • DMJ was accepted onto the Government's GrowthAccelerator initiative, a programme designed to support successful companies with the potential to grow faster, and brought on board specialist recruitment non executive director Alex Arnot.


  • To help embed the values and culture that underpin DMJ's success and continued growth David, Marc and Justin recruited Ali Braid, now director of operations, to lead DMJ's internal recruitment and training programmes.


  • With the company almost 20 strong and continuing to grow, DMJ Recruitment moved to spacious, light offices on Clerkenwell Road. Look out for the union jack mini in the reception area.


  • Building on the investment in the company training programme and the office move, DMJ invested in the latest technology and software to help consultants deliver the best possible experience with such success that Microsoft commissioned a video about how we use their technology.


  • DMJ launched our new website and selected RNIB as the company’s first Charity of the Year and was again the only company that ICSA – The Chartered Governance Institute, endorsed as its recruitment partner.


  • DMJ  announces May as record month in the company's 10 year history and continues to expand its company secretarial, private practice and in-house teams.


  • Winners - The Best Professional Services Recruitment Agency - Recruiter Awards


  • Over 200 students attend our Company Secretarial Insight Days 


  • The DMJ team grows to 27 with a new regional team for 2019


DMJ have done a fantastic job with recruitment for us. They were excellent at pushing to get the CVs sent to clients. They are always discerning with the candidates they send across and only send across candidates that they are confident will win interviews. Thanks DMJ and we hope to continue more roles together!

Clyde & Co

​Having worked with DMJ Legal on a number of recruitment needs across our regional and London offices, we have always found them to be friendly, professional, efficient and selective in the candidates they present. They have worked hard to establish a strong relationship with us, quickly gaining an understanding of our needs, culture and values, and in turn sourcing the right people swiftly. DMJ Legal are highly recommended.


Rory really took on board our brief, understanding the need for quality candidates and a quick turnaround and so allowing us to easily set up interviews and from the focused selection to choose the ideal candidate. I would always recommend DMJ and Rory to others based on the quality and personal service which is always delivered.

Company Secretary Insight Days

DMJ launched the Insight Day Initiative in 2016 to help raise the profile of the company secretarial profession amongst students and graduates. Our responsibility is to address the challenges faced to prevent a longer term skills shortage at a time when interest in the profession is rising. 

Some of the UK’s leading companies are hosting events at their offices to demonstrate what becoming a Company secretary entails. Between them, they've already inspired over 400 students and graduates to secure their first role or embark on the ICSA qualification.
