What I love about legal recruitment is the incredible quality of people I meet every day and the opportunities I get to change their lives.
I am passionate about people, business, sales, marketing and leadership and recruitment brings all of these areas together in one.
Professional, attentive and personable, John Costello held our hand throughout the pleasant experience, and always keeping us informed along the process. Would recommend Gatehouse legal for your legal brokering requirements.
John Castello is professional, efficient and trustworthy. John really listened to what I was looking for – a firm with a positive culture, quality work and growth prospects. To find the right fit for me, John approached one of his trusted contacts from a reputable firm. While the firm was not actively recruiting, I was invited to an interview and a role was created for me. The entire process took just a few weeks.
This opportunity has accelerated my career development. I am so grateful to John for helping me find a firm where I plan to stay long term.
