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.
I have dealt with many recruiters before and can confirm David has been the best one – by far. He is attentive, always available for a chat, has an extensive knowledge on legal placements and goes above and beyond to make you feel safe and confident when making a move to a different firm. I highly recommend David and would not consider a move without having a chat with him first.
David is a great listener, is really well-connected, and offers great options. David’s communication is also absolutely excellent. He even followed up to ask about the birth of my son, which was really appreciated.
David is easy to deal with, proactive and has a good knowledge of the legal market. He provided me with insightful advice and assistance, which was of significant help to me in securing a new role.
David provided excellent insight into the Dublin market, quickly organised meetings with top Irish law firms and responded to all of my queries at all hours of the day. An excellent recruiter to work with.
I would highly recommend David. He was a fantastic support, gave great advice and communicated extremely well. David goes the extra mile when it comes to helping with interview preparation, dealing with prospective employers and keeping in touch after a role has been secured to ensure that the joining process runs smoothly.
David was a pure gem throughout this process. As a candidate, I found David extremely helpful and cannot recommend him enough. From first contact to the end of the process, David was always available to speak to me and was very responsive. David walked me through the interview process, gave me great pointers and of course, it worked as I got the job! In addition to this, David kept in contact with me afterwards to see how I was getting on in my new role which was lovely. I will definitely be sending David’s details to anyone I know who is looking for a new opportunity in the legal sector.
I went to David with a clear idea of the kind of role I wanted. Within weeks I had a job offer. If you’re looking for a change, I recommend contacting him.
I’ve worked with David for a number of years both as a recruiting employer and as a successful candidate and can highly recommend Thomson Legal. David has a great network, has strong relationships with major employers and has a refreshing straightforward, open approach which sets him apart from other agencies.
I was lucky enough to be contacted by David in relation to a new opportunity that he felt suited my expertise. He was an immense help throughout the recruitment process and I can not recommend him highly enough. From the provision of bespoke profiles on each member of the interview panel to actively chasing up outcomes on my behalf and keeping me updated throughout, I always felt like my success was David’s priority. David also took time to provide detail on the company, together with various articles detailing their recent news. Working with David on interview prep, I felt thoroughly well prepared. I have been approached before about recruitment opportunities by others and felt that they hadn’t really considered my cv in any great detail. From day one it was clear that David had done a lot of work in matching the role so that it was a clear fit. If David approaches you about an opportunity, I would recommend you trust his judgement. I would be delighted to work with David again if the need arose. He has even offered to be a sounding board in future for opportunities outside his scope of work. He’s also a thoroughly nice guy!
