About the candidate
Particularly in the legal sector which tends to be a candidate driven market, we are often the first port of call for lawyers and other legal personnel who are looking to move to a new firm.
This candidate was a PI lawyer 5 years PQE who wanted to move to a firm with better career progression opportunities.
We have a lot of experience within the legal industry and have worked with an extensive network of law firms across the country which is growing all the time. The firms we work with undertake various legal work including Property, Corporate, Family, Commercial, IP, Clinical Negligence and Litigation.
This network means that when we are approached by a candidate, we are able to find a good match for the type of firm and work they are looking for.
We work with candidates at all levels including partners, associates, solicitors, legal executives, paralegals, legal secretaries and administrators.
On this occasion the candidate specialised in PI defendant cases. We referred to our database and looked at firms which we were thought were a good fit and then sent the CV to contacts in relevant firms. We then set up telephone interviews and meetings where there was interest.
The candidate was offered a role in a national law firm with offices throughout the UK which predominantly specialises in defendant litigation.
Feedback from the candidate has been very good, with a career already progressing in the right direction.
