What our candidates say

  • I simply had to put fingers to keyboard and share my recent positive experience with you involving Lauren Roberts of G2 Legal. I sent Lauren a connect request and given it was a Bank Holiday weekend did not expect that she would accept my request until Tuesday.  I was very surprised when she not only accepted my request but also followed it up with an email on Sunday morning.  There then followed numerous emails throughout the weekend, where Lauren was on a fact finding mission about my career.  During the conversations Lauren was not only professional but, she was also very personable and I felt that she was genuinely interested in me and in helping me seek out my new role. She went above and beyond what I would have expected of her.  I now have a connection with someone who I know shares the same ethics, passion and drive to succeed, which is so refreshing. Thank you so much Lauren, you really are a credit to the profession. 

  • Gail Morris, Manager
  • Having decided to move to Newcastle but not knowing the opportunities up there, I decided to contact Carl Hodgson at G2 Legal after finding him on Google. I'm so glad I did, within 2 days he'd secured me an interview. Within a week I'd been offered the job, and I started work a week after that.  Throughout the process he was helpful, friendly, encouraging and full of info. We also had a good chuckle, which always helps when you're feeling the pressure.  If you're looking for a legal job in the North/North East I'd urge you to get in touch with Carl ASAP - I'm sure he'd be able to help one way or another.


  • Lucy Briden-Kenny, Multi-Track Assistant
  • Annabel was fantastic in helping me find, prepare for and secure a great job opportunity, always on hand with helpful guidance at every step. Highly recommended.


  • Andrew Jones, Professional & Financial Risks Solicitor
  • If you are looking for a new job in the legal/insurance sector I highly recommend Carl Hodgson. He's polite, friendly, and excellent at finding you the right role. He kept up contact throughout my search for a new role. Prepared me for what to expect in the interview and kept up meaningful contact following the interview to the point of offer.
