Sandra Godbold is a formidable head hunter and market leader in her field. She has exceptional insight and understanding of the needs of lawyers and law firms at both a macro and micro level, and was always there to provide practical advice.
Sandra worked tirelessly to negotiate and close the deal in a time-frame that worked well for all parties. Her service was outstanding throughout the recruitment process. Sandra was always incredibly responsive to any queries, large or small and repeatedly went the extra mile. Importantly, Sandra always delivered.
I would highly recommend Sandra and Atticus Legal as a legal recruitment firm.
Denise and I first got in touch six weeks ago and during this period, she has been a complete pleasure to work with.
I would like to highlight the fact that Denise is an extraordinary recruiter and she is the best I have ever worked with. Working with Denise is different from that with others, largely in two aspects.
I particularly like her genuine understanding of my needs and my career planning, and willingness to listen. After grasping what I truly need, Denise then tailored a plan for me with all feasible options and her suggestions. The second aspect is an impressive one - Denise has extremely good relationships with the potential employers, this is also a reflection of her understanding of the industry. Her relationship net is an indispensable part of the successful placement.
I would say with confidence that Denise understands the needs of both sides and this distinguishes her from others. Denise is not only the person you should go to, but also the person you could trust.
Sandra was very proactive and genuine in her advice. I trust her with her knowledge and experience. She knows the market inside-out and also the clients she works with. I treated her very closely because I can see that she put herself in my shoes and thought of the best solution for me. She would not just refer me to any roles that she found in the market, but she would analyse each of them and let me know which ones to go for. I was also exploring other areas of practice, and she managed to put me forward for positions in other areas and got me an interview. I did not have much difficulty with the interviews as she prepared me well for them. In fact, I do not recall any instances where I did not receive any interview after my application. Sandra managed to negotiate salary terms and better offers for me.
My job hunting experience with Denise has been wonderful. Denise is very proactive and has up-to-date knowledge of the market which enabled me to know where I stood in the market and secure my current role. I was successfully employed as paralegal with one of her clients. Denise has provided me excellent support throughout the interview process which far exceed my expectation.
Denise is one of the best agents I have worked with so far. She has been very professional and approachable and has helped me steer my career to where I want it to be. Denise has also been a friend. She listens to my interests, understands my strengths and offers me fantastic advice, identifying exactly the right job for me. I will definitely recommend Denise to my friends who are seeking career advancement. Thank you Denise for your excellent advice and support.
I was introduced to Denise by an ex-colleague of mine who had been successfully placed to her dream job. Without disappointment, Denise has showcased her incredible patience as well as professionalism which led our way into success as I have got an offer from a great firm! What differentiates Denise from other recruiting consultants is that she is very encouraging and optimistic, and at the same time, she would give outstanding career advice. I would definitely recommend her to anyone I know who had average experience at a recruiting agency and thank you very much Denise!
Anita worked hard to help me find a suitable role as a legal secretary in the corporate practice of an international law firm. Anita’s understanding of the market was helpful because I was looking for a role when the market was quiet. She was extremely professional and understood the specifics of the job I required. She worked with me to make sure that the position was the right choice for me. I really enjoyed working with her very much. I am writing to express my gratitude as I appreciated her fast response, transparent communication, and co-ordination in a timely and efficient manner!

She supported me throughout the interview process and was very knowledgeable about the role and company which enabled me to perform well at interview and secure the role. Thanks, Denise!
In contrast to other legal recruitment firms I have come across, I felt Sandra was always acting in my best interests rather than focusing on the bottom line. Whilst doing so, as well as being truly personable, she was always diligent, professional and effective. On top of this, Sandra is one of the most amazing people I have ever met in my life, she can be your true friend.
Having dealt with quite a few recruiters, Nigel was one of only a very few who really impressed me. Dealing with Nigel gave me the feeling that he was actually trying to help me find the right position rather than me being just a tool to fill his pockets. He even came up with ideas that made a lot of sense and which I had not considered myself. So if you, like most people, prefer being more than just a number, dealing with Nigel is the way forward.

She talked with me very patiently for almost 2 hours to give me a comprehensive knowledge of the general market and every single opportunity we aimed to work on. She also helped solve and advise on the various problems regarding the interview strategies, arrangements, some emergencies and so forth. I will highly recommend her to all other candidates. Many thanks to Denise again.
