BCL Legal continues expansion with new consultant appointments

BCL Legal – one of the leading legal recruitment consultancies outside London which has offices in Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol and Reading – is building its main team with the appointment of two new members of staff.

The first new starter is Craig Wilson, 31, who joins as a consultant. Craig will be focusing on the Central region which encompasses the Milton Keynes, Oxford, Cambridge, Reading, Swindon and Gloucester areas. His primary role is the placement of lawyers and company secretaries within the in-house legal sector. He has previously worked within the management team of a FTSE 100 national retailer before moving into the recruitment industry in 2007.

Craig is joined by Louisa Hill, 29; BCL Legal’s new senior consultant for private practice recruitment in the North West. Her role spans contentious disciplines from professional indemnity and commercial litigation to property litigation and regulatory/health & safety. Prior to commencing her career in recruitment, Louisa worked as a solicitor for Addleshaw Goddard and Hill Dickinson

Louisa said of her new role; ‘Both myself and Craig are very excited about joining the BCL Legal team. We knew a lot about the business in our previous roles so it’s fantastic to now be here and making our mark from the outset.’

James Batt, director of BCL Legal commented; ‘Now is a great time for Craig and Louisa to start with us as we’ve seen a definite surge in demand for lawyers in both private practice and in-house. We’re expecting the market to carry on picking up over the coming year so the appointments are central to our growth plans.’
