With an extensive Business Development skillset from her time in the legal space, paired with her Life Sciences sector focus and her strong academic background, Anjna was the perfect person for the job. Mat approached Anjna about making a move into the world of management consultancy, and after her first interview it was clearly a great match for both parties.

Upon securing the role, Anjna commented on her experience of working with Mat and tml Partners.

“I have greatly enjoyed and appreciate working with Mat in securing my new role at L.E.K.  This is the second role I have got through working with the team at tml partners and working with tml is my first experience of working with a recruiter and it has been amazing. I couldn’t have asked for more support and Mat offered me a truly bespoke service which was very impressive. 

Mat took into account my CV and experience and recommended me for jobs that would apply to my skill set. Mat also reviewed and provided feedback on my CV and cover letter to make sure it was the right fit for the role I was applying for and made sure my skills and capabilities came through. During the 5 round interview process Mat was always there to guide and support me, which led me to be successful in securing a job offer. I couldn’t be more grateful for everything Mat did for me through this process and all the support I received from him.  

I would definitely recommend tml, and especially Mat, to anyone looking for a job.”
