Legal recruitment firms all make the same promises. The difference is, we deliver
Finding the right recruitment firm can be hard. So can finding the right person for your job. We have a whole range of ways to bring candidates and clients together quickly and efficiently – and whether you’re a private practice law firm or an in-house legal department, what works best for one client doesn’t necessarily suit another. That’s why we’ll recommend the best approach for you in terms of timetable, confidentiality and budget.
Our principal methods are:
Retained Advertising Selection
Here we act exclusively in recruiting for a particular vacancy, recommending media, format, content and organising all production. Your name can appear prominently in the advertising or you can choose a confidential approach and advertise under our name. We interview any respondents before presenting a short list of suitable candidates, remaining involved throughout the final selection process.
Networking & Recommendation
Much of BCL’s success has come from recommendations. Which, combined with high profile marketing events throughout the country and our discipline-specific structure, gives our legal consultants really detailed knowledge of the talent available for any field of law.
This combines the previous two methods, with legal jobs ads offering the option to respond directly to us or to you. This can be an economical alternative as fees vary according to the legal consultant’s involvement. Plus as a regular advertiser in the legal press, BCL can negotiate up to 70% discount off rate card – a saving we pass directly on to you.
Database Selection Legal Recruitment
As the UK’s largest regional legal recruitment company, our internet and press advertising, marketing and networking within the profession means we have an exceptional selection of lawyer candidates registered with us at any one time. Introducing you to suitable people on our database is excellent value for money too, as a fee is only due when a candidate is employed.
General Client Advice
We can also offer you specific advice on salaries, benefits, the structure of firms and departments, recruitment projects and trends. BCL is part of the CostController Buying Group that provides services to law firms across the UK via Connect2Law, the legal referrals and support network – to find out more, visit www.connect2law.co.uk
