Silver Circle Law Firm, UAE

​Zahrah is an amazing recruiter and by far the most helpful and hands-on recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. I can’t recommend her or her team highly enough. Unlike many other recruiters I have come across, Zahrah makes an effort to get to know and understand her candidates in order to help them find a suitable role. It is this personal touch that separates her from the rest. She has gone above and beyond to help me find and secure my next career move, going as far as to meet me in person in Dubai and negotiating a better package on my behalf without losing the job offer. Zahrah’s extensive market knowledge and understanding of the legal industry in the UAE has also made the process of choosing the right firm so easy. As a candidate, her honesty and support is second to none, especially for junior lawyers like myself. Contacting EJ Legal and dealing with Zahrah was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you Zahrah for helping me and countless other candidates in their careers. You’re a rare gem in the recruitment world!

​I was very impressed by EJ Legal's professionalism during my search and the on-boarding process for my new role. They have excellent contacts in the financial services industry and helped me secure my target role. They remained very honest and responsive during the entire process and understood my career goals and did not try to encourage me to make the move until the timing was right for me. I would highly recommend EJ Legal to any private practice lawyer looking to move in-house.

​From the first contact I had with EJ Legal, I felt they would provide the right kind of career advice and seek to create long-term business relationships with candidates and companies alike, and I was not disappointed.  They did a thorough initial telephone interview, to understand my skills and experience and how they would suit their clients’ needs. This was followed by a personal meeting, in which we had the chance to discuss in more detail my career goals and personal circumstances. EJ Legal ensured my cv was only put forward for positions that were right for my qualifications, and throughout the interviewing process they provided relevant information and kept in touch regularly. Asha was extremely professional in her approach to my application, she always made herself available for any queries and comments I had, and made the whole process fast and efficient.

​Chloe approached me via LinkedIn when I was looking for work before starting my LPC. I met with her after finishing my time at university and she explained what opportunities I would be interested in. Since that time Chloe has been able to provide me with a number of opportunities which have been exactly what I have been looking for - including an assignment close to my hometown (and given it is the most northerly place in England, that is no easy task!). I have appreciated that Chloe has been able to keep me constantly informed of when jobs have been available, the status of my application and all relevant details for starting the job. I would strongly recommend Chloe to anyone in a similar situation to myself looking for work. The range of work and clients offered to me have all been of a high calibre, and Chloe is always enjoyable to speak to.

​Zahrah's knowledge, understanding & network of the legal sector and its players in the Middle East is invaluable. Assisting me in finding the right fit for my move to both a new country (Dubai) and a new Firm, she was with me every step of the way; both intuitive and strategic in her advice. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

​We deal with Zahrah Suleman and have no hesitation in recommending her for her knowledge of the local market and her creative, yet pragmatic, approach. Always proactive, she thinks “out of the box” and considers no problem unsolvable.

​Chloe has been a tremendous help to getting me the legal roles I've been looking for. She quickly managed to place me at a top city law firm and was incredibly active, enthusiastic and professional prior to getting the role. Further, during the role Chloe has always been on hand to assist with any queries regarding the role/pay and thus I highly recommend working with her. Having worked with a handful of other recruiters I have really been able to see how Chloe goes far beyond the benchmark of what can be done to help

​I have worked with EJ Legal for the last 2 - 3 years and been very impressed with the service that they have provided. On the permanent side, EJ has been very helpful in finding two high quality individuals. EJ has taken the time to get to know the business, the culture, the personalities in the team and this undoubtedly has put them ahead of the game. The fact that the recruiter is a qualified solicitor means that they can understand the qualities and technical skills of prospective candidates and can provide us with a more consultative service, whilst having the confidence to challenge when needed. We are very pleased with both hires and would not hesitate to recommend EJ to other firms.

​Chloe was my consultant while I was looking for paralegal experience before starting a training contract. She stood out from other agents as she was much more helpful and efficient. I would highly recommend her as she is professional, helpful, friendly and skilled in what she does.

​I have nothing but praise for the work of EJ Legal, particularly George Catt.  George is professional and personable, offering creative (but realistic) advice.  I would personally recommend them.

​I have known Chloe since she was at her previous firm, where she has placed me into relevant projects. She has supported me beyond that placement, and her advice has helped me finding the right career move. I can say that she is one of the few recruiters I know able to establish a long term relationship with candidates, beyond the short term perspective.

​Chloe is hands down the best recruiter I've ever interacted with. She took a genuine interest in the kind of position that I wanted to do and where my strengths would be best placed. She found me an excellent position and firm to work at prior to starting my training contract and was responsive throughout the process. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking rewarding experience prior to starting a training contract or a pupillage.

​I really appreciated the fact that the recruiters at EJ made a point of meeting with me face-to-face. I think this helped them to gain an understanding not only of my practice and experience but also of my personality. This meant that the roles which they put to me were, without fail, a good fit. EJ were also very efficient and well-organised in formally confirming interviews and providing background information on hiring companies. I cannot recommend EJ highly enough. They were a great support when it came to making my move in-house. I appreciated the direct and honest approach, which really helped me to think through my options and make the right choice for me. EJ's close connections with hiring managers were notable and meant that EJ had access to roles which were not yet out in the market. EJ's help with preparing for each stage of the interview process was also invaluable. Not only did they help me think through how to answer the usual "difficult" questions, their knowledge of the hiring managers also meant that they were able to give softer tips which helped me to build rapport and feel comfortable in the interviews. Finally, EJ was always very responsive and was in contact with me throughout the recruitment process - even whilst on holiday!

​EJ is a company that I have been fortunate to deal with since 2011 on both sides of the recruitment process. Their Consultants are not typical salespeople recruiters. The recruiter I worked with is a qualified solicitor, exceptionally professional and somebody that I trust. EJ is the furthest thing to me from the average recruiter and I shall always go to them first, regardless of which side of the recruitment deal I am on. As a candidate, EJ has always provided me with an open and honest service. EJ knows me and she knows her clients and I have therefore found their approach to be comfortingly pragmatic. EJ takes pride in matching the right candidates with the right clients and has never tried to push me toward roles that do not suit me or my experience. In many years of experience with recruiters, this approach is often an exception rather than a norm.As a client, I have experienced the same highest levels of service and professionalism from EJ. They knows me and my business and when I have been fortunate enough to use their services, EJ has provided the highest quality candidates within my search criteria and followed that up with the highest levels of services through the interview process, hiring process and beyond.

​A really excellent and professional organisation. I am eternally grateful to EJ, who swiftly followed up every query I raised; gave me key and timely advice (especially useful for the specific interview) and general guidance encouraging me wisely to reassess my fixed objective and be open to a different options. Above all I felt a true dedication to my individual needs and a confidence in me where I merited it and most needed it.

​George acts for the firm for whom I currently work and he placed me here. I found George extremely helpful, encouraging and professional during the recruitment process. Although he worked for the firm he obviously cared about me, the candidate, as well as the firm. I have recommended George to friends looking for new jobs and they have been pleased with the recommendation.

EJ provided us with great service when we engaged them to help find an in-house legal counsel. EJ really took the time to understand the brief and to get to know me and the company, and so was able to provide a high quality pool of well suited candidates, all of whom stood out in different ways. The recruiter was calm, well organised and responsive, and managed expectations really well on both sides. They clearly know and understands the in-house market very well. We were delighted with the process and look forward to working with them again.

EJ has provided excellent service, advice and insight during my search for a new role. From the outset they understood my requirements and suggested only suitable opportunities rather than trying to sell me on whatever vacancies they had. Ultimately EJ has found the perfect role for me - the second time they have done this - and brokered a great package too. Very impressive.

​George - or EJ had an in depth knowledge and strong contacts in my sector. They took a focussed approach to my search identifying and analysing all opportunities before advising fully on the most suitable for my experience and personality. They recognised that personality fit was as important to a candidate and an employer as experience and knowledge and were looking for a long term fit rather than a quick fix.Throughout the process they remained motivated and dynamic - driving the search and continuing to actively follow up all opportunities even when there were already attractive offers on the table. Every opportunity was explored - at no point was I pressurised or encouraged to compromise or accept an offer where there were doubts.Throughout the search I felt that EJ were strongly representing my interests providing mentoring and strategy advice as well as opening doors. I liked their frank and straightforward, no bull business like approach and felt at all times that I was given a highly personalised and tailored service.

​George was absolutely key in providing key strategic advice in respect of my most recent move, really going the extra mile to provide as much context and background information as possible. George was also invaluable in discussing options, enhanced by his extensive industry knowledge. I would not hesitate to recommend George, and also EJ Legal.

​In an industry of overly aggressive untrustworthy and frankly unprofessional people, discovering George was not just a breath of fresh air but also the key to my career progression. George is intelligent and focused on the client - not his cut. He knows the market and the key players. He is frank and pragmatic but also empathetic and supportive in what are inevitably stressful situations. I would unreservedly recommend him

EJ has been incredibly helpful and proactive in our recruitment process. From providing market intelligence on salaries, candidate experience and background, as well as presenting alternatives for finding candidates for our legal counsel role when our hiring mandate changed, due to budgetary restraints. We were very impressed by the high calibre of all the candidates EJ put forward for the role, and were pleased at how quickly and smoothly we were able to finalise the whole process of securing the right candidate.

​George found the perfect job for me a couple of years ago. During our first meeting he listened carefully to what I had to say and presented me with a list of firms I could potentially be interested in, indicating however the firm that he thought would match my requirements. George was right and my current firm and I proved to be the perfect candidates for each other. George assisted me with creating a better CV and a business plan, had good knowledge of the firm, learnt about me and my aspirations and was all in all a very effective recruiter
