BCL Legal – one of the leading legal recruitment consultancies outside London which has offices in Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol and Reading – is building for the future following two key appointments within its fee earning consultant teams in Yorkshire/ the North East and the West Midlands.
Tom Fleet, 39, has over eight years experience as a legal recruiter and will be placing solicitors and company secretaries in businesses across Yorkshire and the North East. Prior to joining BCL Legal, Tom worked for the in-house legal team of one of the largest professional services recruitment companies in the UK, with the remit of placing lawyers into the FMCG, manufacturing, media and utilities sectors across London and the South East. In 2004, he set up its in-house legal function in the North, and latterly also specialised in recruiting commercial lawyers into private practice across Yorkshire and the North East.
The second new starter is Nicholas Fear. Nicholas, 29, joins the firm from Reed Finance and will be recruiting solicitors, legal executives and paralegals into permanent employment, commercial property, construction, projects, PFI/PPP, pensions, banking and property litigation roles within private practice throughout the West Midlands.
James Batt, director of BCL Legal commented; ‘Recruiting these two new consultants is integral to our plans for 2011 so we are all excited about the appointment. I’m sure they will each bring enthusiasm and experience to already dynamic teams across both regions.’
Tom Fleet said of his new position; ‘I am really excited about my new position. BCL Legal has a great reputation across the UK so I look forward to helping drive the business forward and to provide a great service for both our candidates and clients.’
