"I have nothing but praise for Sue Ross Legal. I gained contact with them by applying for a position which they were recruiting. Although I wasn't successful on that occasion they were very helpful in my search for a new job. Lucy and her team were exceptional and on occasion worked outside their normal working hours to assist me in my pursuit of a job that matched my qualifactions and needs. I have worked with recruitment agencies before and in all honesty did not hold them in very high regard - I always considered they fell short of their promises. However Sue Ross is different. They were very proactive and were in regular contact. I am very glad they were there to help me through a diificult and unsettling period of my life. I would recommend Sue Ross to anyone seeking assistance in the search of a new job role. Well done!"

As you are aware I have spent many years working for some of the finest law firms and high calibre legal agencies in London. I was afraid when I left London to return to my roots in Yorkshire I would be lost without those important, longstanding connections. However, you have more than bridged that gap with your combined knowledge and connections and were able to present to me some very interesting opportunities. I am very excited about the new role which I will shortly be commencing, but should I ever find myself in a situation where I am seeking employment in the future, I would not hesitate to contact you at Sue Ross Legal."
