UK Legal Recruitment Agency BCL Legal recently acquired the Temporary and Contract team from consultancy rival Michael Page plc. Mary Nowell and Liz Lawson join during a period of growth for BCL Legal to develop their success in supplying Locum and Contract Lawyers in the regions.
Having graduated in Law and coming from a family of lawyers Mary has a good understanding of legal disciplines which is invaluable when sourcing opportunities for lawyers and liaising with partners of law firms and legal teams. Liz has enjoyed working with temporary lawyers and enjoys the fast paced nature of working within temporary recruitment where a firm usually requires someone to fill a vacancy within a very short time scale. She has gained good technical knowledge and is developing key relationships with law firms, in-house teams and public sector departments in Leeds, Yorkshire and the North East.
Director Mark Levine commented ?We are delighted to welcome Liz and Mary to the team, they have strengthened our contribution to the legal sector across the regions as we are now able to offer the full range of services our clients need to run their businesses. In a survey of the legal sector, 90% of the businesses surveyed said that their biggest bar to growth was recruitment. At a time where the permanent recruit is taking longer to find, businesses are having to think laterally about how they can continue to maintain high levels of client satisfaction and in many circumstances a temporary lawyer or locum is a very viable option?
With offices in Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham, BCL Legal provides a comprehensive legal recruitment service for solicitors, lawyers, law firms and businesses at all levels, across all disciplines and across all sectors.
