Ravi Wickramaratne

Senior Legal Recruitment Consultant


The best thing about working in recruitment is the impact we make on the lives of our candidates and clients from changing a candidates life by helping them look for their dream job to assisting a firm in finding the best lawyers to service their clients. All this brings a sense of fulfillment and joy.

I am glad that with the experience that I have gained together with my passion for the legal profession and helping people, I am able to make a difference in someone’s life.
