What clients and lawyers say about us

Where Star Anise really excel is that they not only carefully and diligently reviewed my experience but also took time to understand my career aspirations – some recruiters manage the former, surprisingly few manage the latter.  Star Anise exhibited a rare combination of excellence in recruitment – identifying a talented and qualified candidate for their “client” position – and proactively and selflessly creating true value beyond the firm’s commercial interest.  Now that is rare indeed. 

Ian Robertson, Senior Director, Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC)

Star Anise saw my abilities and matched me with a job that I could be challenged in, both professionally and personally.

Karen Cheung, Group Director of Business Development, Tricor Services Global

I was very satisfied with the services of Chris and his team and you can deal with them with the highest of confidence.
