Our Recruitment Philosophy
Legal Recruitment is a unique field. Law firms and corporate legal departments can have very specific technical needs and legal staff are highly specialized and professional. Crucial to the success of the recruitment process is understanding the goals and needs that both the employer and the employee have and the ability to determine if the fit is right. While it is fundamental that the employee has the right skills to perform a particular role successfully, we also focus on whether the role is right for them in the short and long term. We also pay close attention to the employee’s fit within the team.
We like to get to know our legal staff. We believe that by getting to know our applicants as individuals we can better serve employers and ensure that both parties are happy in the long term. We often interview applicants on neutral ground, taking the time to chat with them over a coffee, so they can hopefully feel confident in being open and honest with us. We allocate more time and effort to getting it right than to getting it done.
We are flexible, creative, professional, accountable and accessible. We give our applicants our mobile numbers and answer our phones in person. Our applicants are reference checked at the appropriate time and we offer a replacement guarantee.
We are commercially minded. We understand the realities of doing business and are keen to come up with commercial solutions to aid recruitment. We don’t operate on one methodology only and can adapt it to suit both our employer clients and the employee’s individual needs.
We enjoy dealing with you. We are legal recruiters because we enjoy being involved with legal staff, lawyers, law firms and corporate clients. We know you will enjoy dealing with us.
