"I was invited for 3 interviews and ultimately was successful in securing a training contract with a top 15 law firm. Working with Matt was a great pleasure and an unbelievable learning experience. I learnt so much about writing, recruitment strategy and the legal sector in general. I also gained a massive confidence boost and secured a dream training contract programme."


"I was impressed by how quickly you were able to pinpoint where I was going wrong and then the focused approach to developing a different and improved way of looking at applications which I was able to apply to future applications. I am sure the coaching helped me secure a training contract (with a top 20 law firm) this time around after previously unsuccessful attempts."
