“I cannot thank Danny enough for helping me throughout this process of finding a new role. I have been in contact with Danny since I first started coming around to the idea of moving on, just over a year ago, and was very aware my next move had to be a long term move to progress my career. Danny took the time to find out what it was I wanted from my role, what was important to me, and what I didn’t like about previous jobs or companies, and matched my requirements with a number of roles for which he arranged interviews. He managed the full process, discussing the roles and highlighting why they would be good for me. He understood my reservations for certain roles, prepared me for interviews, and was honest throughout with feedback and suitability. At no point did I feel pressured by him to take a role or rush a decision, and I felt he was looking out for my best interests at all stages.

After receiving 2 offers and deciding not to take the role, Danny was understanding and didn’t try to push me to make a decision I didn’t want to. I was beginning to lose hope of finding the perfect role, but Danny persisted in finding more opportunities and making the role fit my needs. He eventually found me a role just before lockdown which I accepted and I handed my notice in. I was then told a few weeks down the line that the start date had been pushed back and I found myself out of a job and waiting to start my new one. Not long after lockdown went into full effect, I received the news that my new employment wouldn’t be going ahead as all recruitment has been put on hold. To say I was devastated was an understatement and I genuinely felt all hope was lost.


Danny responded to the situation by assuring me there was a role out there and promising he wouldn’t give up the search and started to provide me with new opportunities local to me. I feared I would have to take whatever role was available and gave up hope of finding the perfect fit. Danny then provided me with a new opportunity and said he felt it would be a good fit for me and the company. He arranged the interview and walked me through the whole process, taking the time to keep me calm and prepare me as best he could after my confidence had been knocked. He kept in constant contact with me even if to say he didn’t have any updates, and he left me feeling confident and like I was in safe hands.

The day Danny called me to make me aware I had an offer of employment is a day I will never forget. He secured me an offer from a firm that is close to where I live and has secured me an offer higher than I was looking for. I would not hesitate to recommend Danny and AJ Chambers for any recruitment needs. A fully professional service with a genuine interest in helping me find a role that was right for me, Thank you Danny, you have been great.”

“Stuart is incredible!! I had been at my firm for over 8 years but had been actively looking for a new role for the past year, once COVID happened I gave up looking for any new positions thinking that no firm is going to consider recruitment as they have more important things to concentrate on. Then came Stuart, he found me the perfect role and I was fortunate enough to be offered the job. Stuart was there every step of the way providing valuable advice and reassurances as I was obviously nervous having not been for an interview in over 8 years, no matter how basic my questions were, he was on hand to provide guidance and a non-biased opinion which I valued more than I think he realises. I would not have the courage to start a new role without his guidance and I am so thankful that he was there to help and provide support so will be forever grateful to him. Incredibly happy to have worked with Stuart and would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone who is seeking a new role.”

“Darren has been absolutely fantastic in finding me my dream job. I first phoned Darren through strong recommendations and with both his experience and expertise he found me my ideal job within an accountancy practice in record time! His personality was so welcoming and friendly yet professional. Darren’s knowledge of the profession and excellent relationships with clients makes AJ Chambers a step above the rest. The work he does is invaluable and whenever anyone is searching for their dream job look to AJ Chambers because they will not disappoint. Once again thank you Darren for all your help and support!”

“During lockdown, I was (virtually!) approached by Stuart Whiter on LinkedIn. To be completely honest, my initial thought was "Not another recruiter!" as recruiters I had spoken to in the past often made empty promises or failed to reply to my messages. However, Stuart very quickly impressed me. He patiently waited for me to produce my CV and, having spotted that I am a hybrid property solicitor, connected me with a law firm that he obviously felt very passionate about. He knew the law firm inside and out, and I was comfortable asking him anything, from questions on salary to questions about the personalities of the senior partners at the law firm! I stayed in contact with Stuart through the whole interview process and he was in constant contact with the law firm in question. Stuart was attentive, responsive and helpful. I really felt like he was looking out for me as well as the law firm. He made sure that there was someone covering him whilst he was on annual leave which I really appreciated. I ended up accepting a brilliant offer from the law firm and I can categorically say that this would not have been possible without Stuart. He forged the connection between myself and the law firm and was there to assist me every step of the way. At no point did I feel under pressure to accept the offer or to make a quick decision. I felt supported by Stuart who gave me an awful lot of his time during the interview process. I would recommend Stuart to anyone who is looking for a new challenge.”

“Ella is my lucky charm. From the first day we spoke on the phone, to the calls and emails, she is the best thing that has happened to me in my career life! Ella helped me get my dream job in just one month after my graduation and I had her full support along the way. She spoke to me when out the office and was always there to guide me. I highly recommend Nelson Chambers and am very grateful for Ella's help. Thank you Ella and thank you to Nelson Chambers.”

“I posted my CV online and was contacted by Andrew Fragnito-Day on the same day. Andrew arranged two interviews for the week beginning 14th January. He sent confirmations to me prior to the interviews together with some handy interview tips. I attended the first interview on Monday 14th. Andrew apprised me of feedback following the interview and promised me that he would get back to me again when he was informed of the decision. Andrew rang me the following day to inform me that I would receive an offer of the position. I cannot fault him. He was always approachable and I felt nothing was a problem. I relocated from the north to the south and took up my new position after working 3 months’ notice. I spoke to Andrew a number of times during this period and he was very helpful on every occasion. I have no hesitation to give 5 stars. Thanks A F-D”
