About Us

ASH Elite is a boutique recruitment consultancy based in Bournemouth that specialises in matching legal professionals with employers to ensure a “perfect fit” placement. Sofie Scott, Founder and Managing Director, started ASH Elite to break with the conventional model of recruitment with its emphasis on targets, to provide a bespoke, tailored service that fits the right employee to the right employer.

This meticulous way of matching employers with candidates resulted in 94.4% of all candidates sent for interview by ASH Elite in the first year of business being offered a position.

Acting for legal professionals at all levels from entry to senior partner, ASH Elite is the only specialist recruitment consultancy of its kind in Dorset.

The Process

With a rare and unprecedented insight to the local legal market, we will work closely with you, mapping out your goals and career path.

Once your goals and aspirations are established, we will suggest employers we believe to be a good fit for you. With your permission we will then take your profile forward to secure an interview for you.

We will prepare you for your interview(s), providing you with potential questions that may come up in your interview and also help you prepare scenarios for competency based interviews.
