Many lawyers have. Over 60% of our recruitment consultants come from a legal background.
Have you reached a point in your career where you’re unsure whether the law’s for you? Maybe you’re a trainee and realising this already. There are many reasons why this may be the case, but for most of our consultants who come from a legal background, they wanted a career that provided:
A career in legal recruitment allows you to leverage the value of your experience in the legal profession, whilst also opening up a new and exciting career path. And that’s exactly what we can offer you – a fresh start in an environment better suited to your skills and aspirations.
You might find yourself consulting with a major law firm with plans to ‘Northshore’ its operations; a Big 4 Accountancy firm looking to grow its legal services; a FTSE 250 company looking for a new Head of Legal; or, a smaller firm needing to make a critical appointment that’s pivotal to its succession planning.
Our clients will look to you to consult with them, devise and deliver a solution – a solution you need to price and manage through to conclusion.
Similarly, you’ll work intimately with lawyer candidates and help them to make moves that advance their careers and/or meet particular personal needs. You’ll help people improve the quality of their lives.
Because over 60% of BCL Legal consultants come from a legal background, you’ll be in good company and safe hands.
You understand the legal profession, so our job is to help harness the innate skills you have and apply them in legal recruitment.
We take our responsibility to you seriously.
We appreciate it’s a big change to make, but no matter where you are in the decision-making process, talk to us. We’ll provide you with honest advice; to help you make the right decision.
