Unlock Your Career

  • I enjoy working with my colleagues: the work is varied, intellectually stimulating and challenging. In addition to this, the training is great and there are opportunities for career progression and business development. 

    Ahmed Shahin

  • Cogence Search is truly dedicated to matching the right legal personnel with the right legal firms. I enjoy working with such a diligent and knowledgeable team who always take the time to understand the intrinsic needs of the client as well as the candidate.

    Eric Assamoah

  • There's a fabulous culture at Cogence. It's not all about hard work, although that gets some great rewards. We also have a great social life with team events every quarter.

    Manisha Vegad

  • I enjoy the team camaraderie and there's a great commission scheme in comparison with the rest of the market. I learned to establish relationships and headhunt effectively thanks to the excellent training provided. I also earned more in 3 months than I did in a year at my previous organisation.
