I would highly recommend Nicola Sparkes and her Team at people2people to any of my friends/colleagues who would like to work in the legal sector as a Legal Secretary/PA/Administration Assistant. I met Nicola over 6 years ago when I was looking to moving on from my current job. Since then I have contacted Nicola and her team each time I want help with finding a new job and always with great results. Nicola and her team are friendly, approachable and genuine people who listen to what you want and will do their upmost to find that position for you. They make the whole transition stress free with regularly contact to help you through the process for the interview and after the interview and will do this with each job interview you go to.

I found Nicola and her team to be very supportive all the way through the recruitment process.  The one thing that stood out for me was the coaching provided before a job interview, the follow through telephone call preceding the interview, and the constant encouragement provided every step of the way.  In fact, Nicola found me the perfect job!
