Recruitment bio

Angharad studied law at the University of Leeds before completing the LPC and subsequently qualifying as a solicitor in 2005.  Angharad worked for a niche property firm which acted predominantly for groups of high net worth individuals building property portfolios.  As well as practising property law, a large part of Angharad’s role involved the management of the firm as well as presenting at seminars for property investors and providing advice on property and tax.

Angharad remained with her training firm post qualification and spent a further four years in practice before taking a year out to go travelling in 2010.  Returning to the UK in 2011, Angharad decided to move into legal recruitment and joined BCL Legal.

Initially focusing on recruitment in Leeds, Angharad has specialised in the recruitment of solicitors into Birmingham's leading commercial law firms since 2015.  Angharad has developed close relationships with all of the major national, international and regional firms in Birmingham and handles their vacancies at all levels of PQE from newly qualified solicitors to partner level appointments.  Angharad’s focus is on real estate, construction and commercial roles.
