It is crazy to think that it has been one year since I joined Thornton Legal and embarked upon my career within Legal Recruitment. I guess the saying “time flies when you’re having fun” applies to my first year in Recruitment!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year at Thornton Legal but as to be expected in Recruitment, there have been some frustrating moments throughout the year, but there are certainly more positives to take from the year than negatives.

I have learnt a lot in this first year and I am extremely grateful to Joe and Nick for their continued support, guidance and development throughout my time spent at TL thus far. The legal recruitment market is certainly different to a number of other markets and their expertise and knowledge has been invaluable.

I am extremely grateful to have joined Thornton Legal as I do find legal recruitment very rewarding. At times it may feel like there is a better chance of finding Unicorns than suitable candidates but having to be creative with our methods of candidate generation is one of the most enjoyable parts of the role.

It has been great to work with a range of different clients and candidates and I have particularly enjoyed building strong relationships with new clients.

I am very much looking forward to seeing what the next 12 months has in store for me in the world of recruitment and at Thornton Legal. I hope to build on my success in year one and continue to grow and develop my skills and knowledge.
