CJ Obi

Senior Consultant

“I’d describe myself as a connector. I help people to form new networks. I enjoy building rapport with people from all walks of life and I love negotiating and securing deals. Aside from being commercially minded, I like filling people with the confidence they need to fulfil their potential. 

“An average day at Ryder Reid would involve me building relationships with our law firm clients, understanding their current and future requirements, and bringing together a pool of prospective candidates I then speak to, people suitable for the specific role. 

“What sets Ryder Reid apart from its competitors? The culture here genuinely feels progressive and forward-thinking. We look to lead the way rather than follow the pack. I love the energy of the team here.

“I enjoy working in recruitment because I like building relationships and connecting people to the right roles. I love the idea of establishing myself in the legal recruitment world as a key person of influence, while growing the Ryder Reid brand.

“In terms of my biggest personal achievements to date, I’d say coming out more resilient after the pandemic has to be up there. My family were super proud that I got into University College London.

“As a child, what did I want to be when I grew up? I wanted to be an architect… Or play for Manchester United!”
