It was great working with David! He listens to what you want and need in a role. He makes time for you and really seeks out the perfect match!
David has helped place a number of great candidates with us. He is easy to deal with, listens to what we are looking for and makes the recruitment process as straightforward as possible.
I recently used David to secure a move from private practice to in-house. From start to finish, I could not recommend him highly enough. David went above and beyond at all stages of the recruitment process to help me secure the role I wanted, and provided straight talking advice which is difficult to find in many recruitment situations. If you are thinking about a change of role, David should be the first phone call you make.
David was a great support in helping me secure a new role. He provided sound advice and guided me through the recruitment process. I found David to be very responsive to any questions that I had and appreciated him keeping in touch with me right up until my start date. Would highly recommend.
I cannot recommend David highly enough. His knowledge and understanding of the legal market was invaluable. He took the time to understand my career ambitions and only suggested a role that was genuinely of interest to me. David was excellent to work with and I was very impressed by his willingness to go the extra mile for me throughout the process. He always made himself available to discuss matters with me (almost always outside of normal working hours). In addition, he showed a genuine interest in ensuring that I was settling in, once I had started my new role.
From start to finish David was fantastic, he kept me fully up to date along every step of the recruitment process which ensured I was relaxed throughout. I would highly recommend David and Thomson Legal.
David assisted me re-locate from Sydney to Glasgow and secure a role in a firm I was really keen to work for (having previously worked for them in Sydney). Not only is David a nice guy that is easy to deal with, he is incredibly effective at getting things done. He has a real enthusiasm to get the best outcome for you and his communication is fantastic. Having worked in a different jurisdiction, David’s knowledge of the Scottish legal market was invaluable to me. I have recommended David to friends and will continue to do so.
David Thomson was a pleasure to deal with throughout the recruitment process. He has excellent market knowledge and provides first rate advice and coaching. I would recommend him to anyone looking to change roles in the legal sector.
I can’t recommend David highly enough. He has excellent knowledge of the legal industry and provided me with invaluable support prior to both of my interviews. David was very proactive and kept me fully updated throughout the process, in addition to ensuring I had settled in well once I had secured the position which I really appreciated.
We have recently worked with David on a Solicitor hire in Scotland. David proved to be responsive and approachable, he kept in touch on a regular basis during the recruitment journey and identified solid and credible candidates. David is also generous in sharing his market knowledge and recruitment insights which adds value to our working relationship. I would certainly recommend David.
