What our clients and candidates have to say

In a word, I found Jason to be very targeted and effective at finding the right candidate, presumably because Jason really understood the type of person I was looking for and took the time to ask the necessary questions to really understand not only our needs but what we were like ourselves. With other recruiters, I found that the candidates they recommended were of good quality but just not quite the right fit.
Mike Krsticevic Senior Legal Counsel - Suez Environment
I have been really impressed with Jason in his capacity as Chief Organiser of NPA Australia over the last year or two, he is personable, energetic and passionate about what he does and the industry . He will be greatly missed when he steps down from the job BUT that gives him time to be an even better recruiter!
Chris McGinty
Jason is excellent at what he does. Jason is a results-focused recruiter who utilizes his legal industry expertise to effectively advise both candidates and clients throughout the recruitment process. I highly recommend Jason as he is passionate about his work and is one of the best specialist legal recruiters in Australia
Dean Haxhimolla, Principal at Dean Haxhimolla
Jason was able to secure me a full-time graduate legal position in a hugely competitive market. I would highly recommend Elias Recruitment.
Laura Morley, Lawyer at O'Neill Partners
Jason helped me find my current position. He was personable, approachable, and provided advice that was personally tailored to my experiences and skill set. I appreciate his help and wish him all the best with his business.
Jemma Arman, Legal Officer at Kimberley Land Council
Jason actually sourced my erstwhile position for me – I highly recommend him not only as an excellent and diligent recruiter for employers, but more importantly, a prospective recruitee’s delight. Jason is motivated, resourceful, switched-on and a pleasure to deal with.
MELANIE (HAMILL) ORR, Practice Manager at Polczynski Lawyers
I was most fortunate to be recruited into my current role by Jason. At all times his approach was global – from both the client’s and prospective’s interests. He was always available, personable, open and honest. With such vast experience within the profession, it was reassuring to have such personal attention from someone so passionate about what he does. I am indebted to him and would have no hesitation in recommending Jason.
Nicholas Pidcock, Principal Lawyer at Fletcher Pidcock Commercial & Property Law
I immediately contacted Jason again when I came into a position seeking staff in the legal publishing industry. Having worked with him in a similar capacity previously, I knew I can rely on him to get the result I need. I have worked with a number of other recruiters but with Jason, I always felt he genuinely cares for his client’s and candidate’s best interests. He has a down to earth and no nonsense approach who gets the right people at a minimum fuss. He is my recruitment solution.
Jae Redden, Chief Executive Officer at AMPCo - Australasian Medical Publishing Company
Jason is an enthusiastic and innovative recruiter, working well through his networks to come up with good candidates.
Michael Beilby, Director at She's Apples Consulting
As Editor in Chief for CCH, I needed to recruit new legal editors, and turned to Jason on a number of occasions. He understood the type of candidate I needed for the work in terms of both skill and cultural fit. We had a number of successful hires through Elias Recruitment. Jason was a pleasure to work with and produced great results.
Laini Bennett, Executive Director - Content Solutions at LexisNexis
Jason is a highly experienced legal recruiter with excellent contacts and a thorough knowlege of the market. He works hard to deliver on a brief and provides realistic advice in a timely manner. Most importantly, Jason always acts with integrity.
Charles Biscoe, Director at Practice Builders
Wavelength recently required a Migration Agent at very short notice. Elias Recruitment provided an excellent level of service, responding rapidly to source candidates who met our very specific needs. Jason’s professionalism and friendly manner assisted greatly with the recruitment process and we were impressed with the results.
Emma Trehy, People & Culture Manager at Wavelength International
Jason helped me to assess work opportunities objectively, through the window of skills, experience and career development. He has excellent knowledge of the legal industry and is friendly, thorough, professional and effective. I’d recommend Elias Recruitment to any lawyer looking for top shelf support in making their next career move.
