Legal Recruitment Firms – How They Work For You

in Legal

Legal recruitment firms are there to find and supply the best candidates for legal jobs. They're also there to match the best law jobs with the people looking for them – so they operate as a service to both ends of the legal trade, from firms looking to employ, to barristers and solicitors looking for new positions. Of course the quality of your CV is a big factor in your finding the right job, with the right firm – as is making sure you are submitting yourself only to firms whose practice area matches your own.

Legal recruitment agencies are there to help make your search easier, by letting you look for work according to location and the type of law you are qualified to practice. As a law firm, a legal recruitment agency can help you streamline your law jobs applications in the same way. By bringing you only those lawyers and barristers suited to the Legal jobs london you have, a legal recruitment firm saves you time and effort and brings you a pre-whittled down list of suitable applicants. Of course there are more than one kind of legal job – temporary, permanent and locum to name but three. So the recruitment firm is also there to find candidates whose availability and expectations match your needs.

From an applicant's point of view, flexibility may help you get the legal jobs you really want. If you're willing to act as locum, for example, even though you are in the long term committed to finding a permanent position, you will gain extra experience and may even find that your initially short term employer opts to keep you on for longer. If, on the other hand, you are looking for work as a trainee you'll be able to specify that when you start interrogating a legal recruitment agency's database.

The databases are paid for by subscription, so candidates for lawyer jobs are able to find their way to the best positions without paying. The law firms with the legal jobs do pay, but their subscription is seen as an investment in possibility – by putting those jobs out into a market of promising applicants.
