Specialist-sector recruiting: Anthony Collins Solicitors
Anthony Collins Solicitors (ACS) is a sector-specialist law firm with a strong social purpose to "improve lives, communities and society.”
Based in Birmingham and with new offices in Manchester, ACS is nationally recognised as delivering accessible and pragmatic legal advice to its specialist sectors of Health and Social Care, Education, Housing, Charities, Local Government, Social Business and legal services for individuals.
ACS is made up of a team of lawyers who are genuinely passionate about the work they do.
Recruiting innovative, dynamic and like-minded solicitors who share the firm's values is a key part of the firm's ongoing success, and its team of experts are passionate advocates for positive social change that supports and protects the vulnerable.
Over the last two years, ACS has had interesting and complex roles within the Commercial, Corporate Litigation and Property teams and approached BCL Legal to help.
BCL Legal worked closely with ACS HR contacts and recruiting partners to gain an in-depth understanding of the firm's purpose and values. This was pivotal to the recruitment process due to the niche nature of the job roles, and the importance of shortlisting lawyers who share the firm’s vision.
In addition, the insight allowed us to talk to suitable lawyers with confidence (about the firm), which made obvious the lawyer candidates whose skills and outlook matched the profiles needed by the firm.
BCL recruited a number of key hires working across a variety of the firm’s specialist sectors.
