Legal Recruitment Consultant
ARE YOU A SOLICITOR, LEGAL EXECUTIVE OR PARALEGAL?
Have you reached a point in your career where you're unsure whether the law is still the right career path for you?
Maybe you're a trainee and realising this already…?
IF SO, HAVE YOU CONSIDERED A CAREER IN LEGAL RECRUITMENT?
A career in legal recruitment allows you to leverage the value of your experience in the legal profession, whilst also opening up a new and exciting career path. That is exactly what we can offer you - a fresh start in an environment better suited to your skills and aspirations.
For most of our consultants who come from a legal background, they wanted a career that provided:
* Better earnings - A good recruiter earns more than a good lawyer! We offer highly competitive basic salaries alongside an uncapped commission.
* More opportunity to develop business and lead client relationships - Our clients will look to you to consult with them, devise and deliver a solution and similarly you'll work closely with lawyer candidates and help them to make moves that advance their careers and/or meet particular personal needs.
* Greater variety - You might find yourself consulting with a major law firm with plans to 'Northshore' operations; a Big 4 Accountancy firm looking to grow its Legal services; a FTSE 250 company looking for a new Head of Legal; or, a smaller firm needing to make a critical appointment that's pivotal to succession planning. Every day is different in recruitment.
* More autonomy - We work in lateral markets; you would focus on a specific geographical location allowing you to become a specialist in your own right.
* Culture - The Birmingham team is one with a particularly strong sense of unity and camaraderie - it's a positive and energising place to work! We work in a fantastic modern office setting - it's an open plan, collaborative and thriving environment.
* Transparent progression - Over 20% of our team members were promoted last year, some within their first 12 months with us!
