I have recently worked with Dominic Peacock on a successful partner recruitment. Dominic was excellent to deal with, demonstrating a high degree of professionalism and integrity. I look forward to continuing a professional relationship with him into the future.

Partner in Charge, Leading National Firm, Sydney

Dominic is a highly skilled and very professional recruiter. He is extremely dedicated to both his clients and candidates. Throughout the process Dominic provided valuable insights and advice helping to achieve an extremely favourable outcome. He is vastly experienced and is extremely well networked. It was a pleasure working with Dominic and I highly recommend him.

C-Level Executive

Dominic has a high degree of professionalism and exceptional first-hand knowledge and insight into the Australian legal market. When combined with his highly personal and pro-active approach Dominic simply made the process painless and easy as well as ultimately achieving a great outcome for me. He guided me every step of the way and took on the lion’s share of the work to allow me to get on with my day job.

Partner, Law firm

Shaaron clearly puts in the hard work not only to understand the strategy, vision and culture of our firm, but to find candidates that are likely to succeed. There is a true alignment of thoughts and actions when you deal with Eaton. We highly recommend Eaton as your executive search partner.

Managing Partner - Australia, Global Law Firm

I have had the privilege of working with Shaaron for a number of years. She invests deeply in the experience that her professional clients enjoy and may be entirely relied on to deliver transparency, honesty and encouragement in all her dealings. She brings professional integrity to all that she does. I hold her in the highest regard and consider her ability to progress challenging assignments exceptional. She is someone with whom I would entrust any search assignment given her knowledge, her care, her professional judgment and experience.

Group General Counsel and Company Secretary, Global software company

Najeeb helped me obtain a Senior Counsel role at a national company in the FMCG industry. At the time I wasn’t looking for a new role, but the opportunity Najeeb presented to me was too exciting to pass up. Najeeb was very professional and prompt throughout the interview process and was a pleasure to deal with. After I started he would regularly catch up with me to see how I was doing.

Senior Legal Counsel

Najeeb worked with me over the course of several months to help me find an interstate role as a Senior Associate at a leading law firm in Queensland. Najeeb was very patient and took the time to understand what I was looking for in a new position. He presented me with several options and followed up with all of them. At the end I got a great new role and I am very happy with the move. I would definitely recommend Najeeb to any lawyer who is looking to change roles.

Senior Associate

Alicia will go above and beyond for her candidates and she is a great source of information. I highly recommend Alicia.
