    Somaya worked with us recently to fill a particularly difficult vacancy. I found her to be thorough, helpful and committed to gaining the best outcome for both her candidate and the firm. She had in-depth knowledge of the market and was extremely helpful throughout the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other organisations and hope to work with her again in the future.

    What stood out to me was the depth of knowledge that Somaya had on the market, the firm, and the candidate she was representing. Her feedback throughout the process was detailed and considered, she was credible and I trusted her guidance throughout. I look forward to continuing to work together.

    We have just successfully completed our second recent recruitment through Mimoza Fleur. From the moment we identified the type of person we wanted through to settling the final deal Somaya worked seamlessly with our internal team, making sure not only that the candidates presented well to use, but that we were able to tell our story about who we were looking for – she brokered the deal. I hope that we will be looking at other opportunities together shortly.

    Somaya represented a candidate from a Magic Circle firm when we were undertaking a search for a new partner to join our London Employment team. She quickly developed an understanding of our practice and our requirements, and demonstrated this knowledge through the guidance and mentoring which she provided to the candidate. She was professional, dedicated and responsive throughout the process, and assisted with navigating tricky issues around targets and compensation. The result was a very successful hire for the team.

    I have been fortunate to work with Somaya on a partner search for Forsters’ growing family team. I was keen to retain someone who had specialist knowledge of the family law market, which is a tight-knit community. Given her background Somaya was definitely the right person for the job and I found her at all times knowledgeable, efficient and tenacious in her search, even at times when we doubted we’d ever find the right person. Ultimately she was able to effect introductions to candidates who we wouldn’t have met, and led to what I hope will be a cracking recruitment for our team.
