I was very impressed with the service Charles Park provided. Richard Park has a very comprehensive knowledge of the private client market and a bulging contacts book. He was quick to understand the kind of move I was looking to make and was able to make the right introduction for me.

What impressed me about Richard is his knowledge of the private client market place and the key players in it. I got to know Richard during the recruitment process and found him very easy to deal with and very responsive. I also found his advice to be very useful when it came to making a decision.
I was extremely impressed with the way Nigel kept me constantly up to date throughout the search process. When you are looking to make a move, it is comforting to know that you have someone constantly looking after your interests. Nigel knows the Middle East market like the back of his hand.

I found dealing with Charles Park Search & Selection to be a much more personal experience than with other recruitment consultants. Instead of being identified as someone who would fit a particular role which was available and of no other interest, I was contacted in relation to a role but when it became apparent it was not something I would consider, the conversation expanded into my areas of expertise and where I wanted my career to go rather than vice versa. Charles Park Search & Selection and, in particular, Mike Bishop, went to great lengths to assist me in focusing my search on firms of interest and supported me throughout the recruitment process.
Nigel at Charles Park Search & Selection was instrumental in putting me in the position I am today, a position at a law firm which
suits my character, expertise and ambition. Nigel made me feel comfortable by understanding both my needs and the needs of the law firm I eventually joined. As such, I recommend Nigel to all my friends, family and anyone else who is thinking about moving on.

Mike's well-researched approach to finding the right opportunity for each of his clients is a refreshing change when compared to most other legal recruiters. He demonstrates an excellent understanding of the legal market and his follow-up is always a perfect balance of personal yet professional. Definitely worth having a chat with Mike if you're thinking about a move.

Nigel Buck is someone I value, respect and relate to as a person. He's also a market savvy recruitment professional with a safe pair of hands, someone who genuinely cares about his clients' integrity as well as his own. He thinks outside of the box and continuously creates new opportunities himself by harnessing and building relationships with companies and law firms in the region. When I first met Nigel he really took the time to get to know me and where I was heading. He then discretely navigated the job market on my behalf, with a determination and an insight that ultimately gave me access to the kind of opportunities that I was hoping for.
