Testimonials

Red 1 Ltd

Dani has placed me in a couple of positions which have both been a great match to my skills and personality. She has always worked with my best interests at heart and the whole team provides a very professional service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cathedral Appointments to anyone looking for either a job or to hire staff.

Debbie

Satisfied Candidate

'I've experienced Lynsey whilst looking for a suitable role for myself and then as a manager requiring a number of technical positions. Both experiences have been excellent. During the past 6 months of recruitment, Lynsey has found excellent candidates for my vacancies, provided me with background to the candidates where it's missing on the CV and ensured each candidate turned up. Lynsey keeps in touch, irrespective of any vacancies and provides valuable insights into the technical resource status for Exeter and the surrounding area. I recommend Lynsey for any technical recruitment requirements and for any former colleagues looking for alternate employment.'

Are law jobs in demand?

The legal sector looks vastly different from how it did even just a few months ago. There’s no denying that it has been a sector that has taken a little longer than others to catch up with change and digital transformation, tied very much to the traditional apron strings. Nevertheless, it’s clear that the legal sector has evolved, and employers must be aware of what this means for hiring.
