How we work

At Ashville Knight, we pride ourselves on helping you to find the firm and position that is right for you, where you can thrive in the next stage of your career.


Collaborating with a variety of clients, from the largest, most prestigious law firms in the country to smaller, specialist boutique practices, we offer an outstanding service to our candidates as we seek to place the right people in the right positions.

The level of experience and expertise offered by our team is exceptional, and our aim is to provide a truly consultative, honest, and results-oriented service.

We understand that looking for a new job or making a career move can be a daunting, and sometimes frustrating, process. But we also believe it should be an exciting and rewarding experience. With this in mind, our associates take a personal and friendly approach, working with you to clearly ascertain your needs. They are experts in what they do and have a unique understanding of the market, allowing them to evaluate the specific positions we are briefed on by our clients, and select those that are best suited to you.

You will work with one dedicated associate so you will always have a single point of contact throughout the process. We can talk on the phone or through email, but where possible, we like to meet you in person to get to know what you want from your next role and where your aspirations lie.

Our culture is one of transparency, integrity, and professionalism, and we pride ourselves on offering an accessible, reliable, and pragmatic service to:

  • Explore your experience, qualifications, and current and future career plans – these include preferred business sector, salary, location, and contract type.
  • Research the firms and available roles in your ideal geographical area that could suit you best, and liaise between yourself and potential employers.
  • Review your CV and applications to ensure they reflect your true potential.
  • Give honest and constructive feedback so you have realistic expectations about what is achievable.
  • Support you as you prepare for interviews.
  • Negotiate offers of employment on your behalf.
  • Provide post-placement support to ensure you have made a smooth transition into your new role.
