I would like to thank F-LEX for all their support and help in the last 10 month. I was sceptical to register with another agency at the beginning, but it has turned out wonderfully. Without F-LEX, I would have never had the chance to get into these reputable firms! Thank you so much for representing me and believing in me from day one. I really appreciate what F-lex has done for me!

F-LEX changed my life. I had strong academic grades but could not secure any legal work experience and found myself in a real chicken and egg situation, so much so, that I was going to leave law. F-LEX placed me into a silver circle firm, an in house FTSE 250 company and a bank, this has given me confidence and I am hopeful I will now be able to secure a training contract.

First of all I just wanted to say a massive thanks for the last couple of weeks. Your help has been much appreciated and you have been great in taking the burden off me in regards to sorting shifts and filling seats. I am still amazed that we managed on very short notice to fill 20 seats twice a day including weekends - and credit for that solely rests with you. Their dedication and enthusiasm was a credit to you.
