Don’t just take our word for it, here are a few testimonials from satisfied candidates and clients.
‘I reached out to Clara following an advertisement through BPP Law School. I felt immediately supported and encouraged in my search, she got to know me and what I was looking for. She was able to liaise with firms she knew well in the local area to ensure my experience matched the roles they were advertising, and assisted me with interview preparation. This made the whole process a lot less daunting, having never had a virtual interview before! I would certainly recommend Clara Rose Consultancy, for a personal touch to the recruitment process.’
I cannot recommend Clara highly enough. Clara gently encouraged me to apply for a role that I would not normally consider for various reasons. However, this led to me being offered the perfect role in a location which is ideal for me, which unbeknown to me was Clara’s plan all along! I could not be more thrilled.
Clara kept in touch with me throughout and always made time for me. Clara was calm when I was not and helped me prepare a pros and cons list when I was undecided. Clara did not push me and was able to make neutral points both for and against, which I really appreciated. It is a very personal touch with Clara, even remembering to send a good luck message on my first day
I have known Clara for many years as a candidate and as a hiring manager and she has always been really supportive and able to find the time to talk to me and update me on the market and potential opportunities.
Clara has recently helped me find a new role – something I was doubtful would be possible in the middle of yet another lockdown amid an ongoing global pandemic. Clara gave me great practical advice as to how to approach zoom interviews and was really knowledgeable about the firm which was great. She obviously had a good relationship with them. Despite new ways of working now due to Covid, the recruitment process has been seamless. Thank you so much for your help!
Clara Rose Consultancy were prompt with their responses and their manner was very personable. They remained in contact at every stage to address any questions or concerns. I highly recommend them.Solicitor, Suffolk
Clara Rose Consultancy were recommended to me by a solicitor who had previously used their services. I presented the consultancy with an unusual request as my wish was to make a significant career change. I had for 16 years enjoyed senior positions with a major charity and latterly acted as CEO. Having a law degree I wished to complete my training to become a solicitor and yet utilise my existing skills and experience from day one. I met with Clara who gave me lots of her time and I spoke with Ali and together, using their considerable experience, professionalism and contacts I now have a brilliant opportunity that matches my situation extraordinarily well. The whole experience has been a good one and I would not hesitate to recommend their services.Senior Commercial Executive/ CEO
I rang Clara Rose in response to a particular job advert and was impressed from the start. Clara had a really good knowledge of the role and secured me an interview within 24 hours of me sending her my CV. She was always on hand when I needed her – by phone, text and email – and kept me up to date with feedback and progress. She is very professional and I felt she offered me a very personal service, particularly when it came to negotiating my job offer. I would recommend her.Professional Support Lawyer, Cambridgeshire
Vikki and Clara’s joint careers and wellbeing talk was very insightful and positively received by all of our members who attended (ranging from law undergraduates through to fully qualified solicitors). Clara’s depth of experience was clear and her insight into recent trends in the legal market were extremely valuable for students who may be considering targeting firms specialising in a particular area for training contracts, trainees who may be interested to know where the jobs are likely to be on qualification as well as qualified solicitors who may be thinking about moving firms. Vikki’s talk identified some key issues around stress in the legal workplace and mental wellbeing and put forward some useful top tips on how best to manage this. The talk also provided an open forum in which everyone could share their experiences and the challenges they have faced in the workplace and it became clear that none of us are alone in having felt overwhelmed at times. The talk was a great reminder of the importance of mental wellbeing for all of us, both in our personal lives and for productivity at work, and an excellent guide on how to best manage your workload from the outset of your career to minimise stress and maximise mental wellbeing. Highly recommend!
Clara has been fantastic and unlike any other recruitment agent I have worked with before. She is friendly and professional. She takes time to listen and understand your requirements. I haven’t felt at all pressured by her and that is a refreshing change!
I won’t hesitate to recommend her to others. Thank you Clara!Family Solicitor – Cambridge
Clara was friendly and supportive from the outset. She regularly stayed in contact and helped talk me through the interview process beforehand and was really knowledgeable about the firms she put me in touch with which helped put me ahead at interviews. It was a real pleasure to work with Clara and out of all of the recruiters I dealt with she supported me the most and I felt confident in her hands.Family NQ Solicitor – Suffolk
I knew when the time came for looking into new opportunities I would be contacting Clara Rose Consultancy. Despite not actively looking for jobs in the past, they were always interested in what stage I was at in my career.Commercial Property Solicitor – Suffolk
Clara and Ali were supportive, encouraging and professional right from the beginning. They kept me up to date and informed of everything I needed to know. During the interview process, Clara was so personable and provided continued support. Clara was brilliant at guiding me through each stage and was happy to explain everything in detail. I always received quick responses from Clara which was really helpful.
I would definitely recommend them and am very thankful for all their help in securing me a wonderful new job opportunity.
What a pleasant change to deal with a recruitment agency as professional, efficient and knowledgeable as Clara Rose Consultancy! As an experienced PA seeking a slight change of direction to work as a Legal Secretary, I was frustrated by other agencies seemingly ignoring my requirements and aspirations. Julie’s considerable knowledge and experience of the legal profession enabled her to advise and guide me to the areas best suited to my skills, resulting in my securing a role in a legal firm. A really good recruitment experience from start to finish and I would highly recommend Clara Rose Consultancy.Legal Secretary – Suffolk
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Clara, she took the time to find out what I was looking for and find the right opportunities for me.

Clara was at all times personable and proactive making the process pain freeResidential Real Estate Solicitor – Suffolk
Had a fantastic experience with Clara Rose and Ali.Legal Secretary – Colchester
Ali made the process of moving from my first job smooth and stress free; and was always there with advice to calm any worries. The team made the transition seamless, and I would not hesitate to contact them again should the need arise!
I still cannot quite get over how amazing Clara has been. She’s helped me achieve what I thought was unachievable and found me an excellent opportunity. I had secured my new role within three weeks of initially speaking to Clara – not only did she line up the introductions, but she was there to support and advise me along the way.Commercial Lawyer – Ipswich
One of the things I loved most about working with Clara is the way in which she makes you feel as if you’re her only concern. It’s a really personal service and every move is thought through.
Long may Clara continue doing what she does so well – I would not hesitate for a second to contact her if I’m ever looking for another opportunity.
Thank you, Clara – you’re a star!
Clara is in one word – fantastic! She very quickly found opportunities and assisted me fully throughout the process. She was always there when I needed her and I couldn’t have done it without her. I would definitely contact her again.Senior Associate Property – Norfolk
From the first day I contacted Clara Rose, the team were friendly, professional and proactive. Throughout my time speaking with Ali, she was informative, objective and kept me up to date with the progress made. Upon finding a potentially suitable job role for me, Ali was extremely helpful in assisting me and was always more than happy to go through what to expect and how best to prepare for the interview stages. I would highly recommend their services and thank them profusely for their service.Family Legal Executive – Norfolk
I was recommended to Clara Rose Consultancy by a friend and I contacted Clara Rose herself in the first instance. Clara adopted a professional approach from the outset being very tentative to specific instructions while taking the time to talk about my requirements face-to-face. I have come across agents that do not listen to instructions and place any and every vacancy in front of you without understanding the task at hand. Clara, and her colleague Ali, took the time to filter vacancies for me in order that only those I would be interested in came my way.Commercial Property NQ Solicitor – Suffolk
Ali took the time to explain my options to me, regardless of whether they were in her best interests, which was refreshing and reflects the professional ethos of this firm.
If anyone is looking to enter the legal profession from the bottom rung, or move up the ladder, Clara Rose Consultancy are possibly the best firm on the market.
From day one since I have contacted Clara Rose and spoke to Clara I have received nothing but exceptional service. I would personally like to thank Ali for all her hard work, due diligence and patience in dealing with myself and the role of an NQ Corporate Solicitor role I have attained through using Clara Rose. Ali has guided me through the entire recruitment process step by step, continuously being available for my queries and concern with extreme professionalism and enthusiasm. I would not hesitate to recommend Clara Rose, especially Ali to any of my friends seeking a legal role. Once again, thank you!Corporate Commercial NQ Solicitor
Having come across some recruitment agents who failed to return calls or even just acknowledge emails, Clara Rose was a real breath of fresh air. Clara herself was courteous, proactive, and kept me constantly on her radar. I had not heard of Clara Rose before my recent return to the job market, but frankly this organisation, in my experience, is way ahead in terms of professionalism and helpfulness, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.Senior In-house Legal Counsel – London

I was impressed with how supportive Ali was in striving to help me achieve the terms I wanted (days, hours, location, role). She coached me to attend my first interview in 10 years and made it a less daunting prospect. The whole process has boosted my confidence and helped me establish more clearly what I want and what I’m willing to negotiate or compromise on. Thanks you so much for the experience – I have learnt so much.Legal Secretary – Suffolk
Clara Rose was extremely supportive and efficient when I approached her to assist me in finding a NQ role. She listened to my requirements and I did not feel pressurised during the process. Thanks to Clara’s work, I am due to start my NQ role in August with a firm that ticked all of my boxes. Thank you Clara!Commercial Property NQ Solicitor – Suffolk
It’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with Ali of Clara Rose Consultancy who has restored my faith in recruitment agents! Ali is professional, courteous and actually listens to your specific job requirements, keeping me updated each step of the way. For a City legal PA making the transition to a local role, I was fully prepared to battle yet again with another agent who put me forward for roles that were wholly unsuitable from my point of view. What a refreshing change to deal with Ali! I would highly recommend Clara Rose Consultancy’s services.City Legal Secretary/ PA – Colchester
Cheers Clara. Thanks for being so honest and pro active. A breath of fresh air!Corporate Commercial Solicitor – Suffolk
Clara recently helped me to find a new NQ role and I compliment her on her open, honest and professional approach. Changing roles at the NQ stage can be stressful but Clara did all she could to guide me through the process and answer my questions, even after business hours which was a real bonus! Thank you.Trainee Solicitor – Cambridgeshire
Ali’s commitment was invaluable. She assisted me at every step and kept me updated at all times. Ali was dedicated to finding the right position for me, as well as preparing me for interviews.Legal Secretary, Colchester
Can I just compliment you on your professionalism, have dealt with a few purported ‘headhunters’ in recent weeks all of which have been decidedly unprofessional and/or disingenuous (including putting my cv forward for a role without my consent!). Thanks Clara!Corporate Commercial Solicitor – Essex
Having used employment agencies in the past who have shown no interest in the person, just keen to fulfil a gap in order to meet their target, this is not the approach of Clara Rose Consultancy. They are interested in the whole person, taking into account their personality and traits. They listen and understand the person and they match their needs to those of the employer. This in my mind puts them at the top of the league and I would recommend their services to both candidates and employers.Legal Secretary, Private Client – Suffolk
Clara was really helpful in finding me a great job in a short time.Senior Associate, Property Litigation, Cambridge
Clara was a pleasure to work with on a tricky recruitment project. Sensible approach throughout handling both my business needs and the candidate’s aspirations very well indeed.Director of HR, Cambridgeshire
Clara took a personal interest in our company from day one and as a result understood our requirements. This meant we never received prospective candidates who did not fulfil our criteria and we have interviewed all her recommendations. We have now recruited 3 solicitors with her help.Partner, Chelmsford
I was extremely impressed with Clara’s professionalism and approachability throughout the recruitment process. Having dealt with various other recruiters, Clara was the most helpful and supportive that I have come across and this relationship is ongoing even beyond securing the role. Clara is always on hand to deal with any questions or issues quickly and efficiently and I would highly recommend her in the field of legal recruitment.Employment Solicitor
