Why Use an Agent?
Why do people instruct a lawyer? Because you are an expert in your field. The same can be said for using a legal recruitment agent. We have been assisting legal professionals for over a decade and have developed an extensive list of contacts within the profession, not to mention an in-depth knowledge of the legal recruitment process itself.
Many law firms will utilise us as an extension of their own HR department. They recognise and value our ability to source and filter potential legal candidates, ensuring that they receive the very best talent available. By registering with an legal recruitment agency you remove the need for them to search for you and you are more likely to be contacted about suitable opportunities.
One important thing to remember is that a legal recruitment agency always has a special interest in placing you in an opportunity. Ultimately this is how they make their money. However it is also important to note that most reputable legal agencies won’t push you into a role you are not comfortable with/suitable for. If things don’t work out and you leave, it damages their client’s opinion of the agency. We aim to only place candidates in permanent opportunities where both parties envisage a long lasting relationship.
At Law Staff Legal Recruitment we also aim to support and advise you through every step of the recruitment process. Whether that be preparing you for interview or negotiating legal job offers, we will act in your best interests.
