Craig is a senior associate in our in-house legal team. He works with in-house legal departments across the south east of England and he specialises in the recruitment of legal, contract, compliance and company secretarial professionals at all levels, on both a permanent and temporary basis.
Craig completed his degree in 2001 and upon graduation joined a FTSE 100 retailer as a management graduate. In 2007 he moved into legal recruitment with a FTSE 250 recruitment company and since joining BCL Legal in 2011 he has established himself as a key recruitment contact for organisations in the South East.
Craig is relentless! When he is given a role to fill, no matter how challenging the location or brief, he will find a suitable candidate – this is something that his clients really appreciate and value. He is not fazed by difficult briefs and his non-London centric approach works extremely well for clients in the home counties and wider South East.
Clients that Craig has assisted include: AstraZeneca, Autoglass, Balfour Beatty, BAE Systems, Compass, DHL, Ecotricity, Homeserve, Impellam Group, ImTech, Johnson-Matthey, Mercedes-Benz, Michelin, Molson Coors, Nissan, Phoenix Group, Randstad, Saint-Gobain, Software AG, Thermo Fisher, Tyco, Vestas and Volkswagen Financial Services.
Craig and the in-house team is committed to helping develop the sector and the legal professionals who work within it. As part of this commitment, Craig and the team regularly runs CPD accredited training courses in conjunction with The C&I Group and leading law firms including Addleshaw Goddard, DLA Piper, Pinsent Masons and Shoosmiths. The courses range from legal updates to ‘softer skill’ developmental programmes.
Since 2003 BCL Legal has become one of the leading legal recruitment consultancies and in that time the in-house team has placed over 600 legal and compliance professionals in-house.
