"Cuff Jones were extremely helpful and professional. When I first contacted them they were happy to meet and gave me some excellent general advice without pressure as I was unsure of whether to move roles.

They set up interviews very quickly, offered excellent guidance and background on the firms and the roles and successfully helped me move into my current role. I highly recommend Cuff Jones."

I would thoroughly recommend her to any legal professionals seeking new roles."

Law Firm

"We have run a load of focus groups recently with all our new joiners (across every office) and one major trend was that every person who spoke really highly of the recruitment service they received from their agency had been looked after by Cuff Jones. I think it was pretty much without exception. (The HR Team) always sing their praises, but I just thought you might like to have the positive feedback from the candidates’ perspective. Thanks very much for all your team’s work!" Interim Head of Recruitment, International

Litigation Solicitor

"Jon is a great recruitment consultant who really stands out in the legal recruitment market. He has secured me two great opportunities at firms where I was and am very happy. Jon took the time to listen to my interests and how I wanted my career to develop. He engaged in constructive discussions as to what type of firms may be a suitable fit for me and used his extensive network of contacts to be proactive in the search. On a personal note, Jon is very approachable, is not aggressive and makes a point to keep you updated and to provide feedback."

IP Solicitor

"I found Jon knowledgeable, responsive, and a good, friendly person to call on during the big step of my first career move. He took time to listen to my interests, and quickly made a shortlist of target firms based on what I’d said. Instead of waiting for openings, he used his network of contacts to put me forward, and chased frequently for updates - and got me into a role that was right for me. Will definitely be my first port of call if needed again! Thanks Jon."

"The best recruiter I have ever worked with. Proactive, competent, patient and truly has your best interests at heart. I couldn't recommend Cuff Jones more."  

 

Testimonial - July 31, 2014

Banking and Finance Solicitor

"Cuff Jones was recommended to me by an ex-colleague who they had helped secure an associate role at a top firm. I got in touch with them on the back of that recommendation and instantly knew I was dealing with a true professional when, of the several recruiters I was dealing with, they were the only one who requested an initial face-to-face meeting with me at their offices to talk through my background and the type of roles I was looking for. I came away from that meeting assured that Cuff Jones would be able to represent me well. Just as they had done with my ex-colleague, Cuff Jones was able to secure me an associate role at a leading international firm and I have no doubt that their pro-activity and good relationship with the firm were key factors in securing that role. I've already recommended Cuff Jones to several contacts."

Energy, Transport and Infrastructure Solicitor

"I can give nothing but the utmost high praise for Jon, we first got in touch with him a number of years back regarding some opportunities in the Middle East and from the first day Jon was personable, listened to our requirements and excellent at keeping us fully up to date and involved in every step of the recruitment process. His faultless attention to both our needs and following up with the respective firms meant that a new job opportunity was secured in no time and we have been nothing but thoroughly pleased with the result. Jon has stayed in contact with us throughout and I now only recommed him to any friends in the legal sector who are also looking to move."

 

Testimonial - November 6, 2013

Corporate Solicitor

"Laura assisted me with finding a newly qualified solicitor position in a market that was incredibly tough. I dealt with many recruiters before her who all promised the world but never came up with the goods. Laura acted quickly and professionally and ultimately succeeded where many had failed before her. There are a lot of recruiters out there who give the profession a bad name. Laura certainly isn't one if them. I highly recommend her."

 

Testimonial - October 22, 2013

White collar crime and litigation lawyer

"Cuff Jones comes with my highest recommendation. They are very well connected and knowledgable about the law firms they recruit for and the people hiring. As a result they provided me with great insight prior to interviews in how to approach the interview. They also provided good advice on how to follow up an interview for the best impression. A class act." 


Testimonial - August 6, 2013

"Jon helped place me at my current place of work, and was thoroughly professional throughout. He was able to seek further opportunities /openings outside of what other recruiters were offering and has placed a number of my colleagues as well. Highly recommended!"

 

Testimonial - July 3, 2013

"Cuff Jones’s pro-active approach to recruitment was very impressive - they managed to find opportunities for me where other recruiters had failed. They have a very good understanding of the legal market both in the UK and Australia. I would highly recommend Cuff Jones to anyone looking to move firms."

 

Testimonial - March 25, 2013

"Cuf Jones is a terrific recruiter - their in-depth knowledge of the market, in particular finance law, added to their expert communication and networking skills mean that you always feel like you are in the right hands. Their contacts include everything from magic circle to top U.S. and mid-Atlantic firms to silver circle. You never have to chase them and they are good at making you feel as a top priority - when instructed, they call regularly to give feedback and updates on the market. You definitely get the impression that they have their ear to the ground. Highly recommended."

 

Testimonial - March 25, 2013
“Cuff Jones is a fantastic recruitment agency – its consultants favour a proactive, hands-on approach which means that you are never left waiting for responses or having to chase for feedback. Jonathan Cuff is extremely personable and has a deep knowledge of the market. His personal touch means you really get the feeling that he will be going out of his way to find the place that is completely right for you, and not just trying to prod you towards whatever position he can find. He really understands what you are looking for and tailors his approach accordingly. As a junior associate who changed firms on qualification, I cannot recommend Jonathan and Cuff Jones highly enough.” 

 

Testimonial - February 28, 2013

"Cuff Jones is very reliable and responsive, it was a real pleasure to work with them."

 

Testimonial - February 7, 2013

Testimonial - February 1, 2013

“Jonathan is the best recruiter I have come across. He is easy to deal with, takes notice of what you say, gives good advice and gets results.” 

 

Testimonial - February 1, 2013

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Jon over the past year or so. It is refreshing to work with a recruiter in the legal sector who is unpretentious, upfront and personable, in addition to being very well connected and capable of delivering results consistently.” 

Testimonial - February 1, 2013

“I asked Jonathan to find me a role in the London office of a US law firm. He provided a very friendly, responsive and personal service and having enquired with other larger recruitment companies at the time I know that Cuff Jones had covered every available opportunity in the London market. If you are a lawyer and looking to move firms I cannot recommend Jonathan highly enough.” 

Testimonial – November 4, 2012

“Cuff Jones provided me with valuable assistance and advice when I was searching for a new role. It was a pleasure working Cuff Jones, and I cannot recommend them enough. Cuff Jones provided honest, succinct advice and achieved results when other recruiters had not.” 

 

Testimonial – August 20, 2012

“Cuff Jones spends a lot of time getting to know their candidates as people and determining where real synergies exist between individuals and particular law firms. They do this so well because they know their market inside out. Firms can rely on Cuff Jones for their needs as they provides a personalised service rather than playing a numbers game and wasting people’s time. Cuff Jones is incredibly professional and always follow up diligently with both parties, but do not hound or pressure people as some others in their line of work do. I cannot recommend Cuff Jones highly enough.” 

 

Testimonial – June 25, 2012

“When I needed the services of a legal recruiter Jonathan’s name was the one I heard recommended the most. Jonathan is well connected within the industry and he provided me with an individually tailored service. I had total confidence in Jonathan’s abilities and I was rewarded with a great new position in a tough recruitment market. I highly recommend Jonathan.” 

 

Testimonial – June 17, 2012

“Cuff Jones provided invaluable assistance in my job search. They were extremely knowledgeable about the market place, carefully attentive throughout my search and a committed champion of my CV to prospective employers. Mine was not the easiest CV in the world to sell as I was working at a small firm without a stellar reputation yet, notwithstanding this and the extremely difficult job market at the time, they were able to secure me a position at a prestigious mid-market firm. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

Testimonial – May 23, 2012

Testimonial – May 21, 2012​

“Extremely personable and delivered the desired result in a professional and informed manner” 

 

Testimonial – May 21, 2012​

“I highly recommend Cuff Jones if you are looking for a job in the legal industry. Their approach is completely different to all the other recruitment firms: straight talking, pro-active and actually listens to what type of job you want and goes out and gets it (cuts out all the sales chat from the likes of other agenices – who are basic). Got me 3 interviews immediately at big firms and am now with a great firm that they matched me with. Complete different class to the rest of the recruitment firms out there – they have a lot to learn. Have recommended them to friends moving forward and will continue to do so.”

Testimonial – February 26, 2012​

“Jonathan did a fantastic job of setting me up with the firm I am now working with. What set him apart from the rest of the field is that he listened to what I wanted and sought out opportunities, rather than just putting me forward for the positions he knew were available. He worked hard and communicated well throughout the process. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jonathan and would wholeheartedly recommend him to others.”

 

Testimonial – June 12, 2011

“I cannot recommend Jonathan and Cuff Jones enough.

Jonathan assisted me with a placement in the legal sector in late 2010 and was a pleasure to work with. He took the time to meet me early on in the process and worked hard to find me opportunities which reflected both my situation and my requirements. Jonathan is very well connected in the legal industry and has a thorough understanding of what law firms are looking for and the sector in general. Throughout the process Jonathan kept me up-to-date on how opportunities were progressing and was able to talk me through the interview process all the way to offer stage.”
