    I am extremely appreciative of the Owen Reed recruitment consultants, but Saniha in particular for being the amazing person she is! Saniha put forth a lot of effort to help me land my brand-new exciting role. Throughout the entire process, she was consistent in her communication, really detailed in her advice and super supportive! The reason Owen Reed are the top recruiters in London is rather obvious. I want to express gratitude to Saniha once more for all of her assistance and support. Without her, I would not have been able to secure this exciting new position. I would 100% recommend Owen Reed to any of my friends or family who are seeking a new legal position! :)

    I received first a call from Rachel who asked me what type of job I was looking for. Later on she sent me an application form and she added my cv on their system. On 12 April Isabella sent me a job application by email and I applied for an Admin Assistant role. Isabella was brilliant and so professional. She was my first point of contact, advising me all the way through. Archie also help me on my interview questions. I finally got the job. A big thank you for the team who were I will say the best recruitment agency. They are real people doing a job they like and they know inside out. On my first day at work, she called me to know how I was. Well done. Amazing agency!
