Brooke Thornham Consulting, a niche legal sector specialist in the North.

Recruitment isn't rocket science, but it can be done frighteningly badly. We're committed to doing it right, acting with integrity, and in confidence.

​Brooke Thornham is not a big business. Rather our focus is on lower volume higher quality placements. We're selective in the candidates we act for, and we commit more time to a smaller client list that we can genuinely partner with.

If you want to work closely and collaboratively with one of the most experienced recruiters in our region then we'll be keen to support you, and to maximize your chance of success. But if you prefer light touch recruitment without dialogue or accountability then we're not the company for you.

Don't just take our word for it...
