Law Jobs in Australia, the Middle East, and the United Kingdom: Barratt Galvin Legal Recruitment


It can be difficult to find recruiters who really give you the help and support you need when applying for jobs and going through the interview process. Laura was amazing, from the first call all the way through to me receiving a job offer. She was on hand to give advice and help with preparation throughout the interview process and even after starting the job she still checks in to see how I am getting on. I couldn’t have asked for a better recruiter to help me get my dream job.

Laura and her team were excellent. Although I wasn't suitable for the job that I had originally applied for, Laura was able to take my experience and skillset and put me forward for another role which I successfully received an offer. Without Laura's experience and her ability to match people to certain roles, I would never have even thought of applying for the role I was successful in.

Jessica V

PMA/Billing Specialist - Sydney

Worked with Laura who was so helpful and supportive through the entire process. She kept me informed about job opportunities and application processes and makes the effort to ensure her professional relationships are solid by regular visits to regions she works with. Laura helped me secure the exact role I was looking for and I have already recommended her to various colleagues.

Litigation Paralegal - Middle East

I really enjoyed working with Laura. She was with me every step of the way and kept me updated.

Laura even went to bat for me on salary negotiations and ended up with a better offer than I would have received if left to my own devices. Much better experience than other recruiters I have worked with!

Patrick Y

Associate - Middle East

Laura is always lovely to deal with, always real and honest and always looks out for her candidates to position them in a role suited to them and never for a push for a placement for a money grab (which is obvious with some recruiters).

Gillian L

Office Manager - Dubai

Laura placed me in my first legal role over 12 years ago at a large global reputable law firm. Laura is reliable, trustworthy and will work with you to find your ideal role. Laura has placed me in 2 subsequent legal roles and I highly recommend Laura to all professional legal staff either seeking a new opportunity or just wanting a chat about the legal market and exploring their options

Melissa C

Senior Lawyer - Sydney

Laura is a true professional and offers an outstanding service to her clients. Her attention to detail is meticulous, but what makes Laura stand head and shoulders above her competitors is the personal touch she puts into each and every assignment. Laura takes the time to know her client, is approachable and totally reliable and screens her candidates not only for their qualifications and experience, but to ensure that each candidate is the right fit for the organisation they will work with.

Laura's commitment does not end after a successful placement. She follows through and maintains contact with both the client and the candidate. The nature of my work brings me into contact with many of Laura's clients and her reputation is irrefutable. I shall most certainly continue to use Laura's excellent service in the future and have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Ruth M

Regional Office Manager - Dubai

I was placed by Laura in a firm in Abu Dhabi after a move from Australia. She not only found a great role, that was a great fit for both me and the employer, but she also went above and beyond to put me in touch with other ex-pats in the area. Arranging both my work and social life, I couldn't have asked for more! Many thanks again Laura.

Amanda D

Lawyer - Abu Dhabi

I first contacted Laura when moving to London in 2006 after receiving a recommendation from a colleague. Laura was able to connect me to her colleagues in London as well as a number of excellent opportunities during my working holiday. Since our first contact, Laura has helped me to find a number of placements in both London and Australia. Laura is great to deal with - she knows the areas she works in well and have great contacts as well as being friendly and personable. Having dealt with a number of recruiters in the past, I particularly appreciate the almost unique fact that Laura is honest about whether or not a role would be a suitable fit for me - even if it means that she is unable to place me. I would highly recommend Laura - particularly to anyone who is looking to make the move overseas.

Suzanne E

Legal Secretary - London and Australia

Laura assisted me with getting all of my testing done in Brisbane in preparation for my arrival in the UK a short time later. It was done seamlessly and professionally. When I was contracted by a UK legal firm I had the opportunity of meeting Laura in person at an industry event.

Serena A

Executive Assistant - Brisbane

I will always go back to Laura for any recruitment needs I might have. She understands what I need, understands the business I'm in and I have complete trust in her assessment and recommendations.

Tracey C

Operations Project Officer at International Law Firm - Sydney

I have been extremely happy with the quality of service I have received from Laura Galvin. Not only were results produced, placing me in my current role, but I also felt guided and taken care of through the whole recruitment process. I found Laura to be polite, professional and personalable. I have, and would, continue to reccommend Laura to anyone looking for jobs in the legal sector!

Paul H

Associate - London

Laura has always provided good service and good quality candidates. I regularly work with Laura due to her ability to recommend candidates entering the Melbourne market from Sydney or overseas.

Jane T

HR Business Partner - Melbourne

I have known Laura since 2000 but worked very closely with Laura when she moved into recruitment in 2002. I am able to recommend Laura as she has been a dedicated recruiter for G+T. Laura assists us when we are recruiting support staff for our Sydney and Melbourne office. Laura is a hard worker and is
passionate about her work. Laura takes the time to understand our needs and the culture of the firm, because of this Laura will only send through quality candidates that match the needs of the firm. 

Laura will not waste your time. I trust her judgment and when Laura says "I have the best candidate for G+T" she usually does. I have no hesitation in referring Laura to you. Laura will always work with you to ensure that roles are filled promptly, efficiently and with the right person. Laura provides a great service with minimal fuss.

Effie K

Manager at National Law Firm - Sydney

I first met Laura before I went to work in the UK and she successfully found me a job over in London. Then when I decided to come home Laura had 4 interviews lined up before I even got home. She has been so wonderful in finding me employment and I will confidently say I will use her again.

Emily F

Practice Group Coordinator at Australian Law Firm - Sydney

I've worked with Laura for a number of years and have always appreciated her insight, desire to understand our business and its drivers to provide a response that is tailored to our needs. One of the key features that sees me regularly thinking of Laura for our recruitment needs is her ability to understand the different tasks, personalities and complexities involved in each role and put forward candidates that she thinks will thrive in that specific environment. I highly recommend Laura and her team for your recruitment needs.

Pauline M

Legal Practice Administration Manager, International Law Firm - Sydney

I am very pleased to recommend Laura Galvin. I was consistently impressed with Laura’s attitude and professionalism throughout the recruitment process. Laura is very friendly, hard-working and most importantly delivered the results I expected. I am certain that Laura’s efficiency will help other candidates find a great position with the same outstanding support that I experienced.

Mark K

I found Laura to be flawlessly professional as she assisted in placing me at my current role at Ashurst. She took the time to speak to me on the phone and in person, and I felt at all times that she was up to speed with the process as well as conveying my interests and requirements to my future employer succinctly and professionally. I would highly recommend Laura.
