David was a pleasure to deal with when considering options upon qualification. Responsive and pragmatic with excellent market knowledge. Highly recommend.
Moving firm was a daunting prospect, but with David’s help the process was smooth and effortless. David took almost all of the administrative burden on his shoulders and was excellent in providing help for interviews, and importantly feedback following the interviews. David is highly responsive and clearly understands the market that he is operating in. From a personal point of view I cannot speak highly enough of David and the service he provides.
David was a great help to me in securing my current role. He provided excellent support throughout the interview process and understood what was important to me. His regular updates were really helpful and took a lot of the stress and worry out of the job searching process.
Working with David was a real pleasure. His knowledge of the market and the clients requirements were essential in finding a role that worked for me, my skills and experience. David is diligent, provides real time support and updates and provides great guidance throughout the interview process.
David is a friendly, professional and very helpful person to deal with. He gets things done very efficiently, but with no fuss.
David was nothing short of brilliant. The current climate is an unsettling time for everyone and when you are looking for your next role, even more so. It was great to have someone that was so switched-on and able to think outside of the box. Communication is key for me and I really found that David kept me in the loop and had a real knack for matching candidate with client. I was looking for a move away from my current practice area and secured my first in-house role. Great result David!
David helped me make my first move overseas and into Islamic Finance. I have always found him to be hard working and extremely reliable with an excellent knowledge of the Scottish legal market, as well as the market in London and overseas. I highly recommend him.
I found David great to work with and was impressed at his willingness and ability to go the extra mile throughout the recruitment process. His contacts and general insight into the market are valuable assets and he is very effective in identifying suitable positions. In addition, David is very responsive (regardless of time-zone differences), which gives a candidate the best opportunity to be as prepared as possible once contact with a potential employer is initiated.
David was very helpful, responsive and professional. He answered all of my questions and was a pleasure to deal with. He very quickly found me a new role which suited all of my needs.
Bond Dickinson has worked in partnership with David and Thomson Legal this year on a strategically important project to open our new Edinburgh office. David worked closely with a number of Bond Dickinson Partners and myself to research the various markets, identify individuals, and make approaches in order to facilitate conversations with interested parties. With David’s help we have been able to hire four fantastic new lawyer recruits and we are extremely pleased with the quality of the candidate that David was able to introduce us to. From a personal perspective I have enjoyed working with David – he has a very warm and personable approach, and always makes himself available regardless of how busy he is. David has a strong understanding of the Scottish market and his knowledge and experience, for us, was invaluable during the process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for executive search projects.
